The Internet may become the playground of the wealthy and the republicans may have already passed their most inhumane tax “reform” bill, so all I can do is keep drawing pandas until they drag me off to whatever subversive artist’s prisons they can devise.
But meanwhile, trouble is afoot, because where Babette steps her fashionable paws, chaos and infamy are sure to follow.
It’s time for the next episode of 101 Bebe Panda-Nations!!!
Uh oh. The villain of the piece has arrived. Babette de Panda: international panda of mystery! (She may be French!) Fortunately, she was able to fit us into her busy schedule, because when there is evil that needs to be done, no one does it better than Babette! Get ready for the next episode of 101 Bebe Panda-Nation part 3!
Wait, Pinky! Don’t answer that door!
Babette can talk anyone into anything.
And in other news…the 2018 Pandamonium Convention of panda lovers is happening! If you think maybe you need to take a trip to Pan-Diego next spring, why not make it in the company of 59 other panda fans? The plans are made, the dates are set…if you are thinking that this might be fun, check out the Convention Facebook page here.
If this tickles your panda fancy, email the address listed on the image or contact me via the contact form and I’ll send you to the right place.
In honor of the upcoming convention festivities, all of my 31 days of pandas extra posts will be from the collected ‘toons about the Wu Self, famed resident of the San Diego Zoo!
I loved that classic 101 Dalmatians, but the lead villain, Cruella deVille was just way too scary. I hope you agree that Babette is a much more cuddly and adorable villain. She has taken a little time off from her very important role in The Pandyland Mysteries series (still waiting for it’s forever home!) to join in for this holiday fun!
And now, on with the show!
How many times do we have to tell you, DON’T ANSWER THE DOOR!!!!!
Yes, that’s right! We are approaching 31 Days of Pandas, a Panda Chronicles tradition since…um..well, I can’t remember when I started it. As with recent years past, I have a bit too much on my plate to bring you a new ‘toon every day, but just think of it as Fabulous Furry Friday EVERYDAY!!!!
I’ll still be posting new ‘toons on Sunday and Wednesday, as per usual, but on other days, I will share some of my favorites from the archives, and I think many of them are appropriate to the season. And who knows. I may be able to pop out an extra new ‘toon to two here and there.
There are so many new readers who haven’t yet become inundated acquainted with all the characters and story lines, so this is a good chance for you to catch up! It’s also a good time to remind you that Panda Chronicles books make the best Holiday presents!
But without further ado, here is the introduction and first installment of our newest feature presentation, the worldwideintergalactic third house from the corner premiere of: 101 BeBe Panda-Nation!
Wait…who did you say is the star?
Bob T Panda
BTW, you may have been hearing all this stuff about Net Neutrality and how it might go away. WTF is that, you might ask? Net Neutrality helps to ensure that little guys (like me) have as much access to the cyber waves as folks like…say…Facebook. If you think a level playing field is a GOOD thing, consider dropping your representative in Congress and the chairman of the FCC a line and tell them so.
Well, it’s October, so it’s time to have a very special encore presentation of that favorite holiday classic, A Halloween Carol (with apologies to Charles Dickens) Huzzah!!!! But you knew this was coming, didn’t you?
Now, run and get on your jammies, make some popcorn and get ready to enjoy A Halloween Carol!
Bubba’s first feature role!
Mr Wu makes a very cute ghost, don’t you think?
Hey! who said Wu could poof things?
One of Pinky’s misdeeds has come back to haunt her… can her campaign survive this?
You didn’t think I was going to show you the whole thing in one swell foop, did you? Tune in Next week for the final episodes of A Halloween Carol!
Nope, it just wouldn’t be an Institute for Contemporary Panda Satire fable, without an appearance of the cast on the extremely famous and popular (most popular show ever!!!) Mehitabel Tonite!!!show! Meet the pandas behind the seemingly true to life portrayal of the exciting tale, Being Endangered is SUCH a Curse!! Sometimes it’s hard to know what’s true and what’s not true!
Are we talking about alternative facts again?
Well, no, just a little fiction within a fiction, a tale told on a stormy night to calm little pandas as they listen to the wind howl. A tale to bring tranquility to pandas who are being buffeted by a political wind(bag) the blows evil onto the land.
But enough about the battle between good and ebil! Let’s meet the cast of Being Endangered is SUCH a Curse!
I bet everyone (especially their moms) are breathing a deep sigh of relief that Pinky and the Meihems are managing to work things out. Then there is the small issue of mebbe Bubba glowing in the dark (“just a liddle!!!!”) See? I told you everything would work out okay.
Really, Pinky and the Meihems will always be friends, even if their truces seem to be temporary at best. Everyone knows that three girls are a very volatile social structure, especially when two of them are twin sisters. I find it kind of reassuring, that even after all the hubbub at the party, the Pinky and the Meihems can have a nice (mostly) friendly Skype session to rehash the big night.
No harm done, right, girls ???
Everyone knows the party isn’t over till you can sit down and re-hash it!
Gee, it beats me, Pinky, could it have something to do with…oh…I don’t know, the fact that you tried to poof your little cousins into oblivion? Possibly? Who knows! Maybe she’s just being hormonal or something. Anyway, I’m sure you’ll figure out some way to get out of being grounded before too long. She can’t stay mad forever!
And Poor Bubba! Getting grounded after getting poofed while protecting the little twins! Life just isn’t fair sometimes.
But now, on with the show!
I think I see a slight resemblance to a Pinky tantrum…just saying.
And just look at that smug look on Pinky’s face! She knows she won’t stay in trouble for very long!
Was there any phrase that induced more terror and apprehension, when you thought you had snuck in the house late at night than those five little words: not so fast, young lady …Sigh… Just when you thought maybe you got away with something.
Let’s just take a look at the happy family scene, taking place right now at the National Zoo Panda House…
Bubba: wait! why am i in trubble?
Oh, and one of my personal favorites: Do you know how much trouble you’re in??? Heh!
