One of the things I love about the panda community and the panda satire community is that they are a justice and equality minded bunch, for the most part. (maybe totally: anyone that supported Mittens is probably long gone by now.) In this season of gratitude, I am filled with thankfulness for your friendship and support.
Soon 31 Days of Pandas will be upon us!
I have so many holiday theme stories to fill the month we should have lots of panda entertainment every day(Culminating, of course, with the 12 days of Crispmoss!) I am continuing with episodes of Bears of the Baskervilles, with a new episode coming this week. But rather than have the confusion of interspersing the encore presentations of other holiday tales with new episodes of B.o.t.B (which sort of spells “Bob”) (sort of) I think I will keep writing and drawing new episodes and save them until they are all done, and then replay the entire series, along with the new episodes over several days, which will give you a chance to catch up in case you missed any!
But now, let’s have a bit of some Sunday Fun with some encore presentations!
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!
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!
Here we are again, while we try not to gnash our teeth as we read of the idiocy of various state governments outlawing private businesses from having vaccine or mask mandates, or forbidding of teaching any history does not center white men as paragons of virtue. I have worn out the “WTF” keys and the “FFS” keys on my keyboard.
But we have the next installment of The Wizard of Wu’s encore presentation to share with you, so, let’s unclench our jaws, have a bootini and some poppy corn and enjoy the show!
Well that wraps up our annual Halloween Season Encore Presentation of The Wizard of Wu! We hope you enjoyed it!
Be the bear, and tune in next week for more of our NEW story, The Bears of The Baskervilles, as well as what happened to Bob when he met up with the zebras!
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.
We have one more day of Beary Poppins round up, which will catch us up to all the episodes so far! THEN on Wednesday and Thursday, we will have 2 brand new episodes to close out our story, this no good, terrible, very bad year that we have lived through!
So pop up your poppy corn, and get ready for …
More Beary Poppins!!!!
Bike loves Beary Poppins! Also Rory the Dinosaur by Liz Climo
I think Biscuit and Beary Poppins are forming a real bond!
It wasn’t me!
A promise is a promise, even among grizzly bears!
Let’s go fly a kite…
uh oh. As with Chekov’s gun, if you introduce a kite in the first panel, by the third panel, a small panda must become tangled in the strings and go for a ride.
I…um…promise to get Bikkie down from his kite…just not today. Sorry.
