Day 11 ~ 31 Days of Pandas

We are more than 1/3 of the way through 31 Days of Pandas! How can we stand the excitement? Maybe we should sit down and have a cupcake or three, till we regain our equilibrium.

Meanwhile, while I have some cuppycakes, let’s watch that other holiday classic, It’s a Wunderful Life!

it's a wonderful life

Thank goodness Bee the Bear still has her magical wand from the last adventure.

It's a wonderful life

Wu is a good bear at heart….

It's a wonderful Life parody

Bee the bear tells it like it is

It's a Wonderful Life parody

What part of “you don’t exist” didn’t you get? Ha ha! I love that line!

Oh dear! Mr. Wu is getting a rude awakening! Tune in on Friday for the rest of this Holiday Classic, It’s a Wunderful Life!

Panda On

Day 10 ~ 31 Days of Pandas

It’s Day 10 of 31 Days of Pandas!!! Are you feeling extra Pandy yet? Have some more holiday cookies! I promise, you’ll get there!

Meanwhile, the Impeachment Proceedings rage on in DC. HWMNBN is exhibiting nuttier and nuttier behavior. His corrupt minions have all gone full 1984: Nothing to see here! All perfectly normal! If the “president” does it, it’s legal* (*unless he’s a democrat)

So to further distract ourselves, here is the beginning of a brand new, Instant Holiday Classic!!!

As you know, in the tradition of comics such as Peanuts and Calvin and Hobbes, my characters will never age or leave home. We know in the real world, this is not the case. There are so many things in the real world (heh) that we want no part of, but what if…

The kids are fraying Mei Xiang’s last nerve…

Panda On!

A Note from the Panda Commerce Division: Socks are arriving at people’s homes and the ooo’s and aw’s are filtering their way back to me. I’m so happy with how the socks turned out, and I’m happy beyond measure how much you like them. I just designed some holiday Pinky socks (with Baby Pinky riding shotgun with Santa Paws) which are available through my shop on Redbubble! You can find them HERE.

Day 9 ~ 31 Days of Pandas

Huzzah! It’s the final installment of Pinky in Wonderland! Six whole episodes! Tomorrow we’ll be back with a brand new ‘toon, a story that will (hopefully) bring you some joy. It is a short fable for panda lovers everywhere, but especially fans of the National Zoo.

But first, here is the dramatic conclusion of Pinky in Wonderland.

HERE COMES DA JUDGE!

The whole truth and nothing but, so help me, Pinky!

Mebbee just a liddle bite of da magical mushroom….

Oh oh! What is happening! The room is spinning and it’s all going dark!

Was it all just a dream?

Mebbee Bubba isn’t going to let Pinky push him around anymore. Yeah. Right.

be the Bear!

Day 8 ~ 31 Days of Pandas

Oh my! Day 8 of 31 days of Pandas is upon us!

Panda Socks are (mostly) all in the post, and some have even arrived! Huzzah! But now, let’s not waste another minute obsessing about whether this is the end of democracy, the beginning of the end for Mittens, or the end of the beginning!

It’s time for the next episode of Pinky in Wonderland!

When we were very, very small…

Why look! Eet ees Bebe Maurice!

Off with her head!

Is that turtle Too Much McConnell? Who needs a mallet to the butt more than he does?

Uh oh! Will Pinky get convicted? Tune in Tomorrow for the exciting conclusion of Pinky in Wonderland!

And because it ’tis the season….even more relevant than when I wrote this in 2017

Oh tidings of treason and greed.

Panda on

Day 7 ~ 31 Days of Pandas

Happy Caturday! For those of you who serve cats, congratulations! While my feline overlord has gone to her reward (unlimited tuna and no one bothering her, one might guess) I look forward to the day when once again I can hear the pitter patter of thundering paws. How an animal so small can make so much noise is beyond me!

But enough about cats! It’s time for more of Pinky in Wonderland!

Our story continues…

What did we tell you?

Bubba wouldn’t be such a smarty pants if he wasn’t up in that tree (and couldn’t disappear at will)

I don’t know if I would eat that mushroom, Pinky!

Don’t eat that, Pinky!!!!

Be the Bear!

Day 6 ~31 Days of Pandas

How’s ebbryone doing? I was remarking to one of my FB friends, that it was kind of funny that me, a 60’s hippie/counter culture type, was fan girl-ing over all these constitutional law scholars and former US Attorneys. Anyone want to join me in the Joyce White Vance fan club? I appreciate her sane demeanor, knowledgeable discourse, not to mention, she explains things in a way people like me (not a lawyer) can understand.

Impeachment made easy!

Made by the same highly scientific company as the Cute-o-Meter!

But now, back to Pinky In Wonderland!!!!

Those little pandas look vaguely familiar!

Wouldn’t it be better if dey was a very dark shade of pink????

Time to go off to find Mr. Bun!

I’ve always hated when movies do this…

Mittens: No Room! No Room! You look like you’re not from around here!

Panda on!
Bob T Panda

PS: Most of the socks have been shipped out! I will mail the rest tomorrow! Let me know what you think! I’ve worn a pair and they are quite comfortable!

Day 5- 31 Days of Pandas

It’s Day 5 and Pinky is back!!!! Unfortunately for her, so are the Meihems, and they made a list, checked it twice, and brought it along so they could be sure that they didn’t forget any of Pinky’s crimes! And there are a lot of them!

I’m making a list, and it’s really big…

Not even Pinky is above the law. And if SHE isn’t, then Mittens sure as heck isn’t either!

Panda on!
Be the Bear!
Hand over that Cuppycake!

Day 4- 31 Days of Pandas

It’s Day 4 of 31 Days of Pandas! The panda socks have arrived, and I’m going to spend this evening  packing and organizing (and then watching movies and felting pandas!) Tomorrow there will be another new ‘toon and then on Friday, there will be more from Pinky in Wonderland.

The post about the lions that ate the rhino poachers showed up on Twitter this week, so I thought that today’s encore presentation could be this series from The Animal Justice League!

Karma is a bitch, isn’t it?

Ooooooo-oooo-oooo-we have food tonight…

Here kitty kitty…nice kitty…

“We just want to talk!”

and then there was this story…

Limpopo

What goes around, comes around.

Limpopo

You just can’t trust crocodiles.

Panda On!

Day 3 – 31 Days of Pandas

You knew it had to happen sooner or later: Pinky would declare herself above the law! It was bad enough that Mittens did it, now Pinky is getting her inner criminal on!

So what if pandas are endangered! Does that mean they are above the law?

Obeying Pinky is not in the Consditooshun!

Be the bear and Buy Stuff with Pandas!

My annual note about Panda Commerce:

I started writing these ‘toons in early 2008, after reading an article in the Atlantic Magazine about the Panda ranches in China. I did not know where this compulsion to draw pandas was going to take me, I just knew I had to draw them. And so I drew, and eventually I started this website.

Because one of the reasons I started drawing panda ‘toons was because I was depressed because the economy had crashed and no one was buying art, it was important to me that this panda portal would be forever free to anyone who wanted to read my ‘toons. If they could help me, well, maybe they would cheer up other people who needed to be cheered and might not have the resources to subscribe to something as silly as panda satire.

So here we are, 11 years later! I still keep this blog and the archives available and free to to all. I do, however, spend time and resources drawing these toons and keeping them here for you. And so, I have run several Kickstarter campaigns, I now have a page on Redbubble where you can buy things with pandas on them, and my first non-Kickstarter Sock project was a big success. Buying things with my pandas on them, through me, Kickstarter, or Redbubble helps to support my work with Panda Satire.

My ‘toon collections, which are all available on Amazon,  also help to keep me in ink and paper. I hope eventually to get my graphic novels published through traditional publishing, but that is kind of the long game. For those who really want something special, I do sell my original ‘toons, once they have been published in a book.

For those that have the means and inclination to buy things with pandas, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. For those who don’t, I hope you’ll keep coming back to read the new ‘toons, comment on the goings on of Pinky, the Meihems, Bubba, and all the rest of the pandas. Art is not art until it has been seen and appreciated. Everyone of you are welcome here. It wouldn’t be nearly so much fun without you!

Panda on! It’s time for 31 Days of Pandas!!!!

Day 2- 31 Days of Pandas

Day 2 of 31 Days of Pandas brings us the next 5 installments from that holiday classic…

Pinky in Wonderland!!!

(For episodes 1-5, look HERE!)

Well dis is a pickle an’ a half!

It would be better with a little salt and balsamic vinegar, but not bad!

We know just how you feel, Pinky. We feel the same.

What could be behind that door? Stay tuned, panda fans!

And what magical place has Pinky found, as she opens the tiny door?

Tune in tomorrow for an all new ‘toon starring….Pinky! (What were you expecting?)

Panda on, everyone!
Bob T Panda

And remember! Buy Stuff with Pandas!
