It’s panda birthday season for all pandas, but especially for the US born pandas!
And to start out the season, Happy 9th Birthday to the Meihems!!!
Born on July 15th of 2013, more than a month before Pinky, and don’t think they ever let her forget it! Here are some of my favorite ‘toons featuring Bert and Ernie (and probably Pinky, just because!) Can you believe the Meihems and Pinky are about to turn 9?!?!?!?!
And then this happened…
Happy Birthday, Meihems! And a reminder, the book about the real life Meihems written by Beth Bacon and illustrated by yours truly is available for pre-order through Amazon and maybe even your local book store! (Not sure about distribution yet). Order your copy of The Panda Cub Swap today!
The actual Olympics may have ended weeks ago, but time has no meaning here! Here with the final event, are our favorite pairs of twins, The Meihems and their…um…”differently behaved” younger zizzies, Six and Sebben!
Let the games begin!
We will now bid the Panda-O-Lympics a fond fare the well, for another 2 years. Who will the torch bears be this time? Perhaps Fleur and Snowy? Stay ‘tooned in to find out!
I thought we’d start out with one of my favorite stories of the Meihems (which, of course, include Miss Pinky Panda!) Inspired by the real life drama that took place concerning a certain bridge between NJ and NY, and involves a certain governor…
WE call it: HIGHWAY GATE!!!
Oh that Pinky! (Plus you will notice how she managed to hijack this ‘toon series celebrating Meihem Month!)
Toon in this week to see if I actually get any new ‘toons done for this week!
…And another episode of Pinky in Wonderland, of course! Because it would not be the Meihem’s big day without some attention hogging by Pinky! As a special bonus, I’ll add some of the Meihem/Pinky classic ‘toons to this post, because I am THAT kind of panda!
But first, let’s have the next episode of Pinky in Wonderland!
We know just how you feel, Pinky. We feel the same.
Now, let’s have a little Meihem!!!
There must be cake!
And who is this mysterious ally of whom they speak?
The forces of Meihem are only barely in check.
Can you believe those Meihems? blaming everything on Pinky?
Meanwhile, You Know Who continues to embarrass us in the UK (which according to him, is known by many names, but most people don’t know that.) I’m surprised the Queen did not give him his tea in a “to go” cup. I don’t know what is going to happen when he meets Poot’n tomorrow, but I can’t imagine it will be good.
Best to keep watching panda videos. I hear they are very relaxing.
Pandas to the People
Bob-not an enemy of the people-T Panda
No, Pinky has not taken her rightful place as Presydent of the Untied States. Nor has Ping Ping learned to speak American Panda. (Ping!!!) No! Today is the day that Six and Sebben get their Panda Scout uniforms!
Huzzah! On with the show!
It’s Wednesday! gateway to the gateway to the weekend!
Bob T Panda
Lun Lun is now the reigning Hero Mom Rock Star of the U.S. pandas, bypassing previous record holder Bai Yun of San Diego by the – some would say nefarious dirty trick- of having not one, but TWO sets of twins, for a seven cubby total lifetime achievement award! I never got to actually meet the Meihems, Well, we are not going to let that happen again, so I have made plans to meet the Twinkles 2.0 this very month! Stay tuned for a report, but in the meantime…
Here’s how they are preparing to meet their most ardent fans!
Recently I made the discovery that ALL baby pandas get their own personal stuffed bunny during their naming day parties. Okay. Maybe I didn’t “discover” this fact, as much as…um…make it up. An alternative fact for the good of all baby pandas everywhere. I’m not sure whether all the bunnies are magic or not. They certainly seem to be, but whether this is the result of magic wand intervention, or whether the the bunnies are magic from the beginning. Hopefully, all will be revealed in the fullness of time. Or something like that. After all, Mr. Wu had magical bunny slippers in The Wizard of Wu. (An exclusive feature length story that appears in The Book of Wu)
The question remains: should baby pandas be given magical wands?
Baby pandas need their own magic bunnies to look out for them. We R endangered, you know.
Meanwhile, stay tuned for updates about the availability of The Panda Chronicles Book7! Coming soon!
