Bears in space! To the moon, Alice!

There are so many great quotes that came out of the space program, and at least several, if not more, came out of the Apollo Space Program. In our final tribute to the late Neil Armstrong, we bring you Pandas in Space!

Danger Bob T. Panda, Danger!

(But first we pause for an important message!:



one giant panda for mankind!

Also, I wanted to let you know that the folks at Pandas International (the real one, not the one I made up) have agreed to write an afterword about saving pandas (real ones, not the ones I make up) for my book.  How cool is that?

Be the Bear!

    Thankfully the other panda astronauts (Sooperpanna, X-Man, Lanibear, Honeybear, Zoomie, and Fooey) mastered the art of ingressing and egressing the spacecraft entry hatch gracefully 🙂

      Yes, this is true. Thank you for bringing up that excellent point. Perhaps the Sooperpanna could take the panda kindergarten under his wing…er…paw and give them a little guidance. The panda space program would be different today, if the panda kindergarten was allowed in it.

    In memory of my hero, Neil Armstrong:

    “We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too. ” – John F. Kennedy

    Hee hee hee! But where are their helmets? 😉 Mind you, if they were wearing them, they probably couldn’t hear one another and they certainly wouldn’t be able to eat their cuppycakes! 😉

      I thought about putting them in little space suits, with helmets, but you are right…cuppycake consumption would have been very difficult. Though, there were definite possibilities in them bonking helmets and falling down a lot, so I could have gone that route. I may do a few pandas in space cartoons with helmets just for that reason. :o)

    Different or nonexistant??? It makes you think…doesn’t it??? We need all Panna~nauts to order a book so that we are sure to make our goal. All we need is 100 donations a day to get to the goal~and that would be at $1 each plus a few extra just to be on the safe side. We would not need near so many pledges if we can get them all to order at least one book each. Remember to send one to your favorite Panda Blog tender, Panda Nanny Keeper, and one to each twisted friend you have already. If you do not have enough twisted friends be sure to send a book to a normal person~~then count the seconds until they become twisted…Love Grammmie
