Maybe my favorite book in the entire known universe is The Phantom Tollbooth, by Norton Juster and illustrated by Jules Feiffer. It seems like a good idea to have Bikkie and Mister Poppee have an adventure that might “borrow” a bit of the storyline.
I hope the authors will forgive me.
Apologies for posting late today. There was a lot of cross hatching in today’s ‘toon.
Don’t forget to visit me on Substack to read the encore presentation of Six and Sebben’s naming day story, “Being Endangered is Such a Curse“!
Hmmm…this is turning more into a parody of The Sound of Music than Hounds of the Baskervilles, but hey! I really only know the title. Maybe if I have Inspector Panda show up, we can get the detective story/Sherlock Holmes vibe back. (did we ever have it?)
At least we haven’t slipped any story lines from Gilligan’s Island in here!
As promised, here is the second part of A Halloween Carol (Starring PINKY!!!) and a few random Halloween ‘toons, since it’s actually all Hallows Eve here in the states. (At least until the repugnant-cans declare that it is a pagan holiday, and as such, cannot be tolerated!)
On with the SHOW!
And now, a few of my favorite Halloween ‘toons!
Have a fun and safe Halloween! Don’t eat all the candy before I get there! And don’t forget to vote! Election Day is Tuesday! Local elections are important!
Our new character probably needs a little introduction. Last year I was messing around making felty pandas, and I made one that kind of looked like a nun (wearing pink!) I knew it couldn’t be Pinky, so I decided her name was Sister Mary Fluffy (calling her by her initials may get your mouth washed out with soap!) I also decided that she needed to go to a home that was more…um…fitting of her status than my home, so I sent her off to live in Virginia with the spiritual advisor to the Panda Chronicles.
I had hoped that she would lead a quiet contemplative life, but if you are a follower of either #TheBearchelorette or #BearchelorInParadise on the Twidders, you might have bumped into Sister M.F. (see? what did I tell you?) mixing drinks down at the bar. She has also been a regular player in a little behind the scenes Panda Improv!
But let’s introduce her, and find out more about the good Sister…
Stay ‘tooned! More to come next week!
Don’t forget to ‘toon in on Sunday, when we have the concluding installment of A Halloween Carol, as well as some of our favorite Halloween ‘toons!
We are predicted to get a very wild windstorm later on Sunday night, as I write this, so I thought I would get this scheduled so certain people aren’t left hanging! (you know who you are!) Who could this mysterious visitor be?
Well, if you already knew, it wouldn’t be mysterious, would it?
Whoever could this be, and what connection do they have to someone at the Panda House? ‘Toon in again to find out!
It’s time for our second favorite halloween tale (after The Wizard of Wu, naturally) A Halloween Carol! Part 1 will be this week, with the exciting conclusion next week on Halloween proper, here in the US of A. Of course much scarier things are happening in the halls of power, but maybe we can have permission to forget them for just a little bit, while we enjoy this Encore Presentation of…
A Halloween Carol (part 1)
‘Toon in next Sunday for the conclusion of A Halloween Carol! Bwahahahahahahaha!
Be the Bear! Bob the ‘T’ stands for Trick or Treat Panda
Boy there’s a lot going on! Rumors of a sting operation in Maryland…no, not THAT one! The one where they are planning to use more zebras to lure the remaining escaped zebras back to captivity, Another valiant red panda escapes to join the Red Panda Liberation Front, this time at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle (the scene of another daring escape attempt a few years ago by brave red panda girls)
But I have a story to tell! Would I tell you what was going to happen if I knew? Hmmm…
Fortunately, I have no idea where this story is going!
This is SO exciting!!!!
Don’t forget to ‘toon in Sunday for the first part of another Panda Chronicles Halloween Classic Encore Presentation, the first part of A Halloween Carol! This was Bubba’s first starring role! Okay, Pinky was kind of a star too!
Well, till then, REMEMBER TO VOTE IN YOUR LOCAL/STATE ELECTIONS, ‘toon in to The Panda Chronicles, and Buy Stuff With Pandas!
