People have very generously been sharing current Bear NooZ stories with me, and you would not believe some of the things those naughty bears get up to! You may rest easy, knowing that at least some of these stories will find their way into ‘toons (starring Frank and Mikey, perhaps!) for your enjoyment and edification.
So now, let’s take a look at ‘toons from bear stories past (I know pandas are bears too, but they are not the ONLY bears, no matter what Pinky say!)
All together now!!! Be! The Bear!
The panda kindergaten knows where you live.
Misery bear is too a bear!
another cartoon inspired by real news!
Thanks again to Henry Nicholls for alerting me to this story
Introducing Frank and Mikey in their debut appearance!
Send in the bears!
I like bears.
For those of you who are expecting Mr. Wu pins in the mail, they should start arriving this week, if they haven’t arrived already. Please feel free to share your photos of their arrival on twitter or FezBook!
So… when I work on my ‘toons, I pretty much schedule them in the order that I drew them, and if there is a time sensitive subject matter (like the ‘toon I’m going to run on Thursday), I try to draw them in that order. in my obsessive compulsive way, I even write the date and day on the page in my sketchbook where I write the ‘toons.
But this ‘toon cracks me up so much that I couldn’t wait for the whole two and a half weeks till its turn to run came up in the ‘toon schedule.
Because, when it comes to fierce animals, you don’t mess with grizzly bears!
Don’t (*snorf*) look like food!
And then there was the news that HWMNBN was going to get his way in regard to tanks in his military dictator parade. Oh….um…did I say that outloud?
Do we HAVE to go?
Don’t forget to go check out the Mr. Wu Pin Kickstarter! I have a really great stretch goal that I’m just dying to tell you about!!!
Oh boy, oh boy! It’s time for another episode of Bears Behind the Wheel, starring your favorite grizzly bears, Frank and Mikey! Several attentive readers alerted us to this story about a vacationing family in Tennessee, and of course we were powerless to resist the urge to write a new ‘toon (or two) about it!
I mean who can resist stories about BEARS?!?!?!?!
The worst thing is the bears always reset the radio preset buttons and change the seat position!
Stay tuned for the second episode of Bears Behind the Wheel, coming next Tuesday! (Of course we always make you wait for the really good parts!)
Well, that headline could include just about anything with the panda kindergarten, or true stories with bears. (Not to mention Princess Pinky!!! Need I say more?) Several of my very alert readers, Sarajane E. and Barbara B. sent me a link to this story about an entire family of bears behaving badly! Hmmm…I wonder if Frank and Mikey were the bears involved? Stay tuned! I’m sure that is soon to be a story that ZooNooZ will be covering!
Let’s take a look in the way back machine at what naughty pandas have been up to!
Oh! Were we? There was recent news about the scandal with the folks over in New Jersey (The Sopranos State!) and how maybe somebody closed a bunch of lanes of the Fort Lee Bridge back in 2013. They basically (successfully, although not necessarily truthfully) pinned the deed on one of the governor’s trusted staffers (a woman, surprise, surprise) and of course, she is going down for the deed, although she’s still fighting. I say good for her.
The original news story inspired this series of ‘toons, starring young Pinky and the Meihems! Enjoy!
Princess Pinky Bao Bao…what have you done now?
Time to call in …Inspector panda!
Inspector Panda is on the job!
“Hello, Bai Yun? this is Lun Lun…about that detective you suggested…”
…of course Boo-mints are pretty good too.
Will the twins get a merit badge for their road trip? will Lun Lun fess up to where the girls are? will Inspector Panda get a clue, or at least more twitter followers. Stay tuned!
Oh, Pinky…what have you done?
Howdy, Mr Kitty, kindly tell us where a tired old cowpoke can get a boo beer and a cuppycake.
Uh oh. I knew when I saw her new tiara (Pinky 2020) that it was a sign of trouble. Big trouble. Mommee Mei might have hoped that Pinky had learned something from her experience 4 years ago, and she did, they were just not the things Mommee Mei wanted her to learn.
Countless grizzlies, pandas and other bears who have been caught unawares on cameras would growl a resounding NOOOO! Wild pandas have been caught on camera, and now…now, lovable grizzly bears Frank and Mikey may have been unjustly accused of a crime!
But then, just where did those fuzzy dice come from? The Shameless Commerce Division of Car Talk, perhaps?
WE’re just 1 week away from the next Panda Chronicles Pin Project, so stay tuned! Sneak peek at our next design coming…um…soon!
