Whatever and however you celebrate, remember, it is always better to celebrate with pandas! Yes, even with Pinky.
I’m sure absolutely no one will be offended by today’s ‘toon. ( I ran it past my spiritual advisor and she said it…um…now what was it she said? Oh well. Here it is anyway!)
Remember! Every time a bell rings, a panda gets a cuppycake! I’m doing a three part Encore Presentation of Beary Poppins over at my Finding Your Inner Panda Noozletter on Substack. Check out the first installment here!
And do check in on Crispmoss Morning here, for an Encore Presentation of The Twelve Days of Crispmoss, starring you know who!
Till then, Be the Bear! Bob T I’ve been very good Panda
We thought this would be a better year than 2020…ha ha…joke’s on us! Sigh…we did get the vaccine, but thanks to certain people who were all in on “personal bodily autonomy” (for this, anyway) who yelled (often right in people’s faces) “MY FREEDUMB!!!!” we have had to cope with ever more contagious and more deadly mutations of the virus. Probably the next one will spread just by reading about it on the inter webs.
But here we are. We have (hopefully) survived (this far). We will be back in the new year with more panda satire and more pandas to introduce. Bebe Maurice’s tiny sisters Fleur and Snowy will be making their debut in these pages. We will have our annual Year in Review where we look back at the ‘toons of last year. It’s always very interesting (to me, anyway) to see what ‘toons leap out at me as the most consequential or interesting or funny.
There is another Olympics for the pandas to compete in. They kind of missed this year’s Olympics, not really remembering that it was happening at all. But this is the Winter Olympics, and those are the Olympics that pandas like best!
The New Year is the Year of the Tiger, and Pinky is ready for it! Don’t tell Mommee, okay? Pinky has an upcoming campaign to start raising money for, so fire up the selfies with tigers! Really, don’t tell Mommee about this!
And now, let’s see what New Year’s Eve has in store for us at the Panda House…
And because it is still one of my favorite New Year’s Eve ‘toons…
Oh my! We are winding our way down to the end of the year, so let’s get right back to…
The Bears of the Baskervilles!
If you missed Monday and Tuesday’s recaps, just scroll back through the ‘toons, so you’ll be all caught up!
Bikkie is ready for his close up!!!
Tomorrow we have 3 BRAND NEW EPISODES IN ONE DAY!!! Can you stand the excitement?
Hard to believe we are almost all the way through 31 Days of Pandas! As we look back on 2021 (must we?) and get ready for 2022 (must we really?) I want to share my gratitude, for all of you who read these ‘toons and have embraced panda satire! (especially when we’d much rather embrace a baby panda!)
Tomorrow we bring our tale of Bears of the Baskervilles to a close as we get ready to launch into the new year.
Sigh…remember when we thought that once Mittens lost, we would be rid of him? This ‘toon was written before the attempted overthrow of the government on January 6th.
I hope everyone had at least some joy over the recent holidays. It’s been a really hard year for most of us, and very terrible bad year for others. While some of us had the privilege to hide out from the day to day perils and anxieties, others were out on the front line, doing the work that needs to be done.
Many people are saying that The Panda Chronicles helps them get through the insanity that surrounds us, and I am so happy that I can do something useful from my fortress of solitude! I hope that I can keep writing and drawing about my favorite pandas far into the future! Thanks to all of you who cheer me on and find my panda ‘toons funny. Who would have guessed?
Tomorrow we return to The Bears of the Baskervilles. It’s been long enough since the last episode appeared here, that I thought it would be a good idea to start from the beginning. For the next 4 days, I’ll recap the earlier ‘toons, ending with the exciting ending/new ‘toons from the story. Huzzah!!!!
Snow and cold temperatures arrived here last night, so since I am stuck on my snowy hill, I guess I’ll get some work done!
