More Celebrations of Pinky! (and Bubba!!!!!)

I am a bit under the weather here, but today I was able to drag my sorry, fuzzy butt out of bed and prepare today’s Celebration of Pinky! I’m sure that a good dose of Pinky will be just the medicine I need, what with outrage and laughter being known as the best medicine. Who said anything about outrage? Well, have you listened to the news today?

Nuff said about THAT!!!! Let’s see what the Pinky File has for us today!

Princess Pinky helps with new years resolutions

You say you want a resolution, well, you know, it is hard to change a bear….

Pandas are standing by to take your calls!

And it was ever thus….

Bubba’s first feature role!

He’s small for now, but Bubba Bei Bei is shaping up to be a whole lot of panda!

Feed me, Mama!

Really, Pinky….It’s not nice to tease your little brother.

Happy 100th day Birthday! More frosting!

Let’s get ready for Bubba’s (Pinky: and PINKY’S!) Birthday Season!

Oh yes, it is panda birthday season now and it’s in full swing! But two of the stars of panda birthday season have birthdays in just a few more days. Last Friday we saw some of Pinky’s greatest moments and now it is Bubba’s turn!

But first, we have just returned from secret talks in an undisclosed location!

Can you guess where?

Oh Canada
We think you’re really swell
Meanwhile south of you
We are so ashamed
We’ve really gone to hell

Oh Canada
Your country’s very grand
The premier he fights
For diversity
A panda in each hand!

Oh Canada
Your Premier’s really cute
In a kilt he rocks,
Even on the beach,
And in a formal suit!

Oh Canada
We had a real good time
And now that global warming’s here
You make some real good wine!

Oh Canada
The US is a dump
We look longingly
Cross the border cause
You don’t have Donald Trump

But now, let’s get the birthday season rolling!

PP: um, dis is not going to interrupt my presidential campaign, is it?

He’s small for now, but Bubba Bei Bei is shaping up to be a whole lot of panda!

Feed me, Mama!

And how did Pinky manage to hack into my computer again?

Really, Pinky….It’s not nice to tease your little brother.

Happy 100th day Birthday! More frosting!

As true today as it ever was…

Coffee tastes better in a Bubba mug…

You knew Mommee was going to get angry, didn’t you?

Of course, you can read ALL of Bubba’s (Pinky: and Pinky’s!!!!!) ‘toons in Book 7 of The Panda Chronicles: Don’t call mee boo boo!

A Very Merry Birthday

One* downside of only doing 2 cartoons a week, is that sometimes events slip through the cracks and I don’t get to them in a timely manner. All of the panda birthday events happen in a very short period of time (not quite as short as the panda season of love, but, you know, those events are connected.) But recent news of the upcoming birthdays of two much loved Pandarazzi of The National Zoo gives me the perfect excuse to post this new ‘toon now!

I am particularly indebted to those regular zoo visitor panda photographers that chronicle the real pandas that fuel my panda satire obsession. I am far from pandas and my opportunities to visit them are limited, so to all who share their photos and videos on Fezbook and Twidder, this one is for you too!

Happy Birthday, Merry and Allen R.  I hope your birthday celebration is everything you hope it will be!

Up and away…..

Have a panful day out there, and for goodness sakes, have some CAKE!!!!!

Be the Bear!
Bob T. Panda

Thanks to  and        my twitter pals that alerted me to Merry and Allen’s birthday! Hope you guys enjoy this birthday surprise!

  • The other downside are the wails of despair when folks realize they have to wait another 4 days for a new ‘toon.

 

It’s Not a Party Unless There’s a Fight

Back in the real world, Pinky had a wonderful time at her birthday party, having her own cake all to herself. Bubba on the other hand, either decided it was too hot, got spooked by the huge crowd, or just decided it was time for a nap, and left his cake for his mom Mei Xiang to have her way with. Fortunately in the world of Panda Satire, the party has just begun!

So it’s one for brawl and brawl for one!

It's not a party till the pandas start a brawl!

It’s not a party till the pandas start a brawl! Fortunately, Bubba has his priorities in order.

And in other panda news, the Toronto Zoo, home of the almost one year old Canadian panda twins (known to the pandaratti as the TTwinkies) Now have a panda cam!!! The cam is only operational from 9 AM – 6:30 PM Toronto time, but it is a welcome addition to people who…um…really, really, REALLY need to watch panda cams for their…um…work. check it out here! (Not during working hours, of course!)

Late breaking news update!!!!!

An ultrasound from Zoo Atlanta conforms Lun Lun is carrying twins. I know, I know…it’s almost impossible to tell whether pandas are pregnant or not, but now there are pictures! We are not nearly out of the woods, so let’s all clasp our paws together and wish for a safe delivery and two healthy cubs. BTW, this will put Lun Lun on top of the panda production table for US pandas, as this will be number 6 and 7. (Bai Yun had 6 before she retired after the Wu Self was born; “when you have already produced perfection, why try for more?” said the modest young Wu)

More news when we have it!

It’s My Birthday Too

Well, yesterday was the big party at the National Zoo, with birthday cakes for Pinky and Bubba…um…make that cakes for Pinky and Mei Xiang, since Bubba decided there was way too much hubbub and went back to his den to take a nap and play with some of his presents. We will have a cartoon eventually about the events of the day, but not just yet, because…

The Cake Party Convention is off to a great start!

Yes, the cake party convention has commenced and Pinky is in rare form!

Pinky, please do not get your brother all wound up!

Pinky, please do not get your brother all wound up!

Well, just between you and me, Pinky is not such a bad sister after all, because when they went home that night (which was Bubba’s Birthday Eve) we witnessed this scene in Bubba’s room….

From Pinky to Bubba...his own bunny!

From Pinky to Bubba…his own bunny!

Fortunately, Bubba’s nanny keepers didn’t let Mei Xiang eat the entire cake, and they brought it inside so that he could enjoy it in his den. Pinky, of course, had a great time with her cake, which she didn’t have to share with anyone!

While I couldn’t be at the party, I’m having a great time seeing everyone’s pictures and videos!

Be the (birthday) Bear!

Bei Bei Turns One Year Old!

Bei Bei, better known here in these pages as Bubba, Pinky’s beleaguered little brother, turns one year old next week! There is a party for him on Saturday August 20th (two days before his actual birthday on the 22nd). Bei Bei is a much loved panda, as you can read in this article written around the time of his public debut back in January.

But I promised you a slew of Bubba ‘toons to celebrate his birthday season, and around here…

...A Promise is a Pinky Promise!

PP: um, dis is not going to interrupt my presidential campaign, is it?

The very first cartoon …Bubba gets his cap!

Now, I know I said these were all going to be about Bubba, but losing his twin was a big part of the story back in August of 2015….

Mr Bun has a question, daddee.

Fortunately, Bubba proved to be strong and healthy and…um….a good eater.

And better than getting his name, there was the day that Bubba got his official Panda Chronicles outfit!!!

And let’s end with the day that Bubba broke the cute-o-meter!!!!

See? I told you it was broken!

Well, that’s all for now, except maybe a message from our sponsor, reminding you that you can have your very own Bubba Mug! Check out all the swell things here at the Pandyland Store of CafePress!

Isn't that just the cutest thing?

Be the bear! And have a fabulous furry Friday! I hope you had as much fun as I did revisiting the ‘toons!

As an extra bonus, here is Doxiemom’s video of Bubba and his mom, playing in the tub!

Mr. Bun Returns: Part 2

I think it is a wonderful thing that Mr. Bun has returned to his rightful place, but I’m with Pinky on this one. I don’t think Mr. Bun wrote that letter any more than Pinky does. And the printing is way too neat and tidy for the twins to have written it. Perhaps, Unka Justin, Prime Minister and panda fan No. 1 of Canada wrote it for Mr. Bun. After all, he wants a reasonable panda to be commander in chief in his neighbor to the south.

Did Unka Justin write this letter?

Did Unka Justin write this letter?

I love that Bubba is still a believer in the powers of Mr. Bun. He believes that Mr. Bun could have written this letter and of course, he is in total agreement with the sentiments of being nicer to Bubba (and Unka Bob!)

So, what’s up next? I guess you’ll just have to come by and see. For those of you who follow me via Fezbook, you should be aware that the folks at FB are continually tweaking the algorithms (whatever the heck THEY are) so that posts go to fewer and fewer people who might want to see them. So even if you have signed up to see posts from me, you might not, depending on the whims or casting of animal entrails that they might do over there to determine who sees what.

So the only SURE way to make sure you don’t miss any Pandy Goodness, is to subscribe to this blog to have pandas appear in your inbox 3 times a week. The sign up is at the very top of the right hand column here. It says, Invite Pandas to Your Inbox. The second sign up right below that, is if you want to be on an email list that I may or may not send out additional pandynews on a very irregular basis.  It is headed by Get Even More Pandas and when I have super pandy news, I use this email to let the inner panda circle know. You do want to be in the inner panda circle don’t you?

And for those of you on Twidder, I heard that Mr. Bun now has his own Twidder account. I can hardly keep up with all my characters getting their own Twidder accounts. Sigh…

Mr. Bun Returns

I know it has taken a little too long for the return of Mr. Bun but in ‘toon time, it has been no time at all. And isn’t it wonderful  that Pinky is so technologically tuned in? Do we know where Mittens has been poofed to? Do we care? No, all we care about is that Mr. Bun returns to the place he belongs…with Pinky.

Of course,  if Pinky DOES become president, how will it look if she brings her stuffie bunny to the inauguration?

Oh, Mr. Bun! Where have you been?

Oh, Mr. Bun! Where have you been?

As a side note, we’ve been having a few technical difficulties over here, which for the moment seem to have resolved themselves. (That’s how I usually resolve technical difficulties: shut down laptop, go to dinner, have a cuppycake and hope that whatever was wrong no longer is when I turn on the computer again. ) For some reason I was not able to upload today’s new cartoon, and I was afraid I was going to have to figure out some low tech work around – print and deliver personally to hundreds of people around the world, perhaps? But while that might have been lots-o-fun, the time required and the cost of world-wide personal delivery was beyond my resources. So I am happy to report that the problem seems to have gone away by itself. Huzzah!

We will have more from Mr. Bun this Wednesday, and then who knows what I will have prepared for you for next week. The Tour de France is coming up soon, so we will revisit the danger of selfies at the Tour, as well as other selfie hazards in Fabulous Furry Friday’s encore extravaganza!

Don’t forget to…

You Can’t Lie to Mom

Poor Bubba. Once again, he suffers the consequences of being Pinky’s younger sibling. If Pinky had been born sooner after Tai Shan, would she have developed as such a little terror? Who knows? We only know that Bubba is made of softer stuff (frosting?) and the least look from mom can send him into a quivering mass. He can’t lie to mom like Pinky can.

So, after Pinky has taken off for another campaign swing to get endorsements from some VIP’s (Very Important Pandas) Bubba is left to face the music…

I'll talk! I'll talk!

I’ll talk! I’ll talk!

Oh Bubba…you are such a pushover!

Be the Bear! (You can do it, Bubba!)
