Fat Bear Week continues, but even more importantly, It’s OctoBEAR and that means Halloweenie! And as I previously mentioned, that means for the next couple of Sunday’s we will be having our annual special encore presentation of The Wizard of Wu!
So let’s get started, shall we?
Toon in next week for the next installment of The Wizard of Wu!
Be the Bear! Bob T Panda
A Reminder for the Holiday Season
USPS has made plans to slow down deliveries…why? Because they can, also Louie De, so if you are planning to order pandas for the holidays, order early, so they can actually get to you on time. After last years debacle (at least one priority mail package mailed on December 7 did not arrive until January 10th-ish.) I would rather not mail any packages after December 1st. Right now I have a fairly relaxed production schedule, so unless it’s a big order, I can still get pandas done in a week or so.
Get your popcorn out, it’s time for the first installment of 101 Bebe Pandas! Please enjoy this beloved Holiday Classic Encore Presentation, brought to you by The Institute for Contemporary Panda Satire!
Wait…who did you say is the star?
How many times do we have to tell you, DON’T ANSWER THE DOOR!!!!!
Babette can talk anyone into anything.
‘Toon in Wednesday for the next exciting installment!
Yes, it is indeed Christmas Eve at last! Huzzah! Brew up some cocoa, get your cookies all lined up, in order of preference, and get ready to watch another holiday classic tomorrow, ALL episodes of 101 Bebe Pandas!
But now, I promised you the conclusion of our newest holiday (instant) classic…
Mei Xiang’s Nightmare Before Christmas! Get out your hankies so you are ready for the happy ending!!!
I TOLD you there would be a happy ending! Would I lie to you?
Bob ho-ho-ho T Panda Treason’s Greetings!
Just in case you need something festive for your holiday caroling…oh Tidings of treason and Greed!
Well, I’m sitting here listening to the “debate” in the house over all of 45’s crimes. Sigh…I think I got it right in yesterday’s ‘toon, quite frankly. I’ve been listening to Rachel Maddow read her new book Blowout, which is all about the oil and gas industry and how Russia is entangled in all of it. It’s a serious read with all sorts of tales of incompetence and corruption. You might need to read a little bit of The Panda Chronicles in between chapters!
Meanwhile, here is the next episode of Mei Xiang’s Nightmare Before Christmas!
Hold it right there, panda boy!

Just thought I’d pop in here with a thought about a Kickstarter Make 100 project for January. I’m thinking felted pandas… Whaddya say?
Our new feature presentation is finally here. (Or at least the introduction to it!) I should alert you that there may be a few interruptions in the narrative as we go along, but never fear, when I get around to compiling it into a book (heh!) it will all be together! I’ll save today’s diatribe till after today’s ‘toon, so you can stop reading before you get there if you are so inclined.
And now, on with the show!!!!
Curiouser and curiouser…
And now for today’s political/social/human rights diatribe…
The policy of taking children from their families as they are attempting to cross the border is inhumane, not to mention cruel, and often is cruelly carried out, and the main purpose seems to be to use it as a bargaining chip in order for He Who Has no Shame to get funding and approval for his border wall. How this extortion and hostage taking is anywhere close to legal, I just don’t know. For those who are in a position to donate money to organizations that are helping these folks, I would encourage you to do so. Just be sure to do a little research on the organizations that are taking donations. (Nothing like a crisis to bring the vultures out of the woodworks. Ask a trusted source and do your research.) You generally can’t go wrong with the ACLU and check in with The Southern Poverty Law Center. Both these organizations do good work in protecting those with few protections. I think there are some working specifically with this issue.
I’m not generally a praying type of person, but I’m making an exception here, and praying that this situation gets resolved before any of these kids are seriously hurt or worse. The lifelong trauma caused by separation during childhood will be long lasting and more than bad enough. This will not end well, unless it ends very quickly, and I don’t have a lot of hope for this. Our dictator in chief has no heart and no empathy. Keep speaking out, calling your representatives and senators, and support relief efforts if you can.
Did you ever think we’d get to the end of 31 Days of Pandas, let alone the end of this year? Not to flog an orange horse (because we don’t believe in hitting things) but I think the turn of the new year will not bring us any immediate release from the toxic cloud we are living under. To those that are resisting the evil that is afoot, stay strong. Take care of yourself; keep fighting for fairness, kindness, support of the planet, and all those who exist on it.
Keep being the bears! (And keep reading panda satire!!!!)
And now, the final episode of 101 Bebe Panda-Nations!
Happy New Year’s Eve and a (Im)peachy New Year!
Hope you get to party like it’s 1999! (With the panda kindergarten!)

We are getting down to the end of the year, to the end of 31 Days of Pandas (SAD!!!!!!) and hopefully the end of the tRump reign of terror. Well, I might be jumping the gun on that one. Remember, it took 2 whole years to build the case against Nixon. Have faith, panda fans! After all, Mr. Mueller belongs to society of people named BOB, and that is exalted company indeed! Heh!
So, without further ado, let’s watch the next episode of 101 Bebe Panda-Nations!
How about that! Pinky DID save the day!
We hope you’ll come back for three more days of encore presentations for 31 Days of Pandas and then Sunday we’ll have the final episode of 101 Bebe Panda-Nations! Huzzah! Let’s put our paws together and make a wish for a kinder, gentler world. Yeah, yeah, I know. Well, at least let’s resolve to watch more panda videos. Here’s one of my favoritesof pandas being ESPECIALLY helpful! Enjoy!
