You Say You Want a Resolution…

Since we might want something to distract us from both today’s vote in Georgia, AND the cluster**k that is about to occur in Congress tomorrow, I thought it would be a good time for Mommee Mei to deliver Pinky’s resolutions for the year!

And let’s not even get into the phone call Mittens made to Georgia’s Secretary of State…really, let’s not get into it!

Frank and Mikey are taking a quick pre-hibernation nap in their room as Pinky, Bubba, Ping, and Bikkie discuss the upcoming presentation of Pinky’s New Year’s resolutions!

Let’s see what’s happening, shall we?

It was either this or a double semi-tractor trailer!

Happy New Year!

I was going to take the weekend off, but with the annual delivery of Pinky’s New year’s resolutions by Mommee Mei coming up on Tuesday, I thought it would be worthwhile to study the previous presentations of resolutions.

I had really hoped the political world would have calmed down by now. But no. The state certifications are in (Biden won), the Electoral College voted (Biden won) and now most of the repugnant in the House have determined to dig their heels in and have a tantrum, as are (at last count) 11 R’s in the Senate. Oh, and let’s not forget the loss of 60 court cases brought with no evidence whatsoever, many thrown out with caustic scorn by judges, many of the them Mittens appointees.

One can only hope that the Congress will stop this madness after the certification of the EC vote on Wednesday. The damage to Democracy brought about by the power mad politicians will not subside easily.

Maybe Mommee Mei should have a word with them.

Princess Pinky helps with new years resolutions

You say you want a resolution, well, you know, it is hard to change a bear….

Once again proving the intransigence of Pinky, and the omnipotence of Mommy Mei

resolutions

Pinky: “rules are for other pandas.”

Bubba: my resolution was just to chew my food more, an’ mebbee not eat so much frosting.
Ping: ping!

You would think Pinky would already have improved her behavior by now…

CubbieTBD is One Week Old!

Yes, we have passed the first week of our new cubbies life. We are relieved, but not complacent! No. A new panda cub is a fragile thing, but so far all appears to be going well. XT4 is getting round, loud, and well loved by Mommee Mei.

I am going to hold on to this good news as hard as I can. I managed not to watch or listen to the RNC #FascistFest, but it was almost impossible not to hear some of the clips or analysis around the inter webs. If people vote early, and are not prevented from voting, we can wrest our country back from the grasping claws of tyranny. We must vote, we must remind our friends to vote, we must correct the vision that the forces of evil want to convince us is real.

And if we are inspired to use bad language, who can blame us?

(This toon appears by popular request:)

Well *bleep* and take your *bleep* and stick it *bleep*!!!!

September might be just around the corner, but it’s still August today, and that means it’s still Pinky’s (Bubba: an’ bubba’s!) Birthday Season!

March

Whats a protest without pandas?

inauguration

Hey, save some cuppycakes for me!

Taxes

Uh oh…it’s the Pinky Revenue Service!

summer

What could be in a letter to Pinky?

summer vacation

Mei is certainly ready for summer vacation, but maybe Bubba needs some summer duds!

Banky Pig

Unhand my Banky Pig!

Pandward bound

What a wonderful surprise! Um…NOT!!!!

pandas return

But some pandas go both ways!

The arrival of Ping!

panda house

Be careful Ping Ping! The Panda House might not be…um…completely safe.

Ha ha! Oh that Pinky!

defense

“It was just a suggestion”

all pandas eve

Okay. That was just WAY too scary.

scary

Ha ha! That Pinky is so clever!

all pandas eve

Will Pinky EVER quit tormenting her brother?

trouble…trouble…trouble…It starts with “T” and that rhymes with “P” and that stands for Pinky!

new year

I couldn’t resist.

I guess Pinky and the GOP have something in common, as much as it pains me to say…

resolutions

Pinky: “rules are for other pandas.”

I hope you enjoyed this trip down memory lane!  Buckle up panda fans. The next two months are going to be a bumpy ride! If you need the voting information for your state, you can find all you need HERE! You can also go directly to your state’s voter information to check your registration!

Panda On!

While we wait…

While we wait for me to do a new ‘toon celebrating the birth of our latest cubby, heart of our hearts, the miracle panda, born in the midst of a pandemic and in the perils we face as a nation, an event that signifies hope.

In one of her fabulous stories (in which all the panda cubbies are much better behaved and respectful to their elders than the cubbies in these pages) Aunty Lucilla points out that our newest cub shares his/her birthday with Hua Mei, born in San Diego to Bai Yun and Shi Shi. Hua Mei was the first surviving cub born in the US and has become quite the hero mom herself. But this newest miracle cub, will be the last born to the current group of pandas who reside in the US. There were questions as to whether Mei Xiang was too old to have another cub. (Mei Xiang: I knew I could do it. Have a little faith)

It is the end of an era, although I hope not the end of having panda families in the US. They bring so much joy to us all. Because this is my world, and I get to make the rules of this world, I get to keep Pinky, Bubba, the Meihems and Mr. Wu all here to inhabit my stories.

Welcome to the world, little XT-4 (aka Four, aka Qi Ji) Start your engines! 

And now, back to the Panda-demic…

Mommee Mei has an eagle eye!

Panda On!

I promise this week I’ll get the new felties photographed and posted!

Today is Pinky’s Birthday…oh, and some other stuff happened too

What week we had! We could almost (almost) ignore the rantings of HWMNBN while we basked in the good feeling glow of the Democratic National Convention. And if that was not enough…

We…have…a…new…baby PANDA!!!!!

Pinky: ahem

Yes, Pinky, we KNOW today is your birthday.

While we wait until I have a chance to create the introductory ‘toon to welcome our new arrival, we do have one or two (ahem!) more ‘toons to celebrate the birthdays of Pinky and Bubba. Mei Xiang, panda mom extraordinaire, had her fourth surviving cub* on Friday, August 21st at 6:35 PM.  Do you think she planned so that these 3 siblings would have their birthdays on three consecutive days?

Happy Birthday Pinky and Bubba! Happy Birth day XT4!!!!

The Spirit of Halloweens yet to come is not a spirit to be messed with, right?

What the well dressed panda cub is wearing this season!

How IS this different from Pinky’s normal bossiness?

Bubba is having so much fun with his new friends!

Hey! Where did Bubba and Mr. Bun go?

Pinky is just so sensitive….

Oh, Mr. Bun! Where have you been?

Did Unka Justin write this letter?

What goes around, comes around…

Pinky, do you really think that Bubba will fall for this?

Mommee Mei puts her foot down.

Oh those red pandas! They are such characters!

The following group of ‘toons were written more than one and a half years ago. They don’t seem quite so far fetched NOW, do they?

Who would ever imagine Pinky would do something to offend someone? #ClapLouder

Mebbee Bubba and Ping Ping can help…

Mittens can’t really do that, can he?

Mittens did WHAT??????!!!!????

Dis. Will Not. STAND!!!!!

I don’t want to end on this somewhat depressing note…off to look for one more ‘toon about Pinky and Bubba!

Watch out, Bubba! Pinky is on the loose!

Panda On!
Bob T Panda

  • Mei Xiang had a cub that only survived a few hours in 2012, a still born twin to Pinky (Pinky: it was NOT my fault!) and a twin to Bubba who lived 4 days.

We just don’t know, dude!

As I write this, on Wednesday night, Mei is still pacing and lounging in her den, occasionally munching on some bamboo, but not yet popping out a cubby (or two). Sigh…She will do what she is going to do in her own sweet time, so no point in obsessing and…checking the panda cam…just…one…more …time.

But meanwhile, it’s Thursday!Gateway to the weekend and you know what THAT means!!!

It’s Pinky and Bubba’s birthday weekend!!!!

You say it’s your birthday!!!

By the time this posts, Mei Xiang may have had her cubby. Or not.
Sigh…Stay tuned!

Panda on!

Daring to Hope

It is still Pinky (Bubba: an’ BUBBA’S!!!) Birthday Season, so we have still more ‘toons starring this dynamic duo! (Bubba: don’ forget ping!) Yes, you too, Ping.

But first…some things that inspire…

Hope

Yes. I said it. Hope.

Seriously, there has been so little hope available lately. HWMNBN is now trying to disrupt the USPS with his hand picked handmaiden, with mail in voting the target of his malevolence.

But let’s put that aside for one day (after you call or email your Rep and Senators, and maybe your state’s AG while you’re at it.) while we acknowledge we have not one, but TWO things to be hopeful about. I’m not sure which one is more momentous…

Okay, since I got this news first, Joe Biden picked Kamala Harris to be his VP. That news alone made my heart soar, and made the sick feeling in my stomach recede for just a moment. ( Read Connie Schultz’s lovely post on hope here) Hearing their joint announcement helped me believe again that a future is possible. But then…

VETERINARY STAFF FROM DA ZOO SAID THEY SAW A POSSIBLE CUBBY ON MEI XIANG’S ULTRASOUND!!!!!!!

Now, we know from past experience that it’s not a done deal till a cubby (or two) pops out, and even then, success is not guaranteed. But for the moment…

Let’s choose HOPE!

So with no further ado, let’s get on to the celebration of all things Pinky! (Bubba: an’ bubba!!!!!)

Really, Pinky….It’s not nice to tease your little brother.

These paws are made for walking….eventually.

Happy 100th day Birthday! More frosting!

panda

You better watch out….

And then there was the day he had to figure out what to wear for his debut…

I’m ready for my close up!

I didn’t THINK that Pinky knew the “share” word.

That Pinky is too clever for her own good!

What’s that blinking red light over there?

I has no sekrets!!!!

You can’t just DO stuff. You need instruction from an expert!

Well, I could go on all day, but I’ll save some for next week, next weekend being Pinky ” Bubba’s actually birthday weekend! Until then, we’ll be keeping our pseudo thumbs crossed for a new cubby (or two!) in DC and for democracy to continue standing!

Don’t forget to tune in on Tuesday for the final installment about Six and Sebben’s great race! What  was that stuff Six dumped on the track??? Any guesses? Here’s episode One and episode Two, in case you missed them!

Panda on

It is Still Pinky’s (And Bubba’s!!!!) Birthday Season!

It is Sunday, here in these United States, (or more accurately, Untied States) and we are going to attempt to ignore reality for however long it takes to read these ‘toons, celebrating Pinky and Bubba’s birthday season. It is hard to believe that in the real world, Bubba turns 5 this year, and Pinky is Seven! (Sebben: no! i is sebben. shee is pinky!!!)

So, let’s take a deep breath and practice our happiest delusional techniques while we celebrate…

A Star is Born and Who Broke the Cute-O-Meter?

If you think that maybe elephants never forget, they have nothing on pandas.

Is this any way to treat our Nation’s most adorable icon?

The forces of Meihem are only barely in check.

Pinky needs stuff and she needs it now!

Mei puts her paw down…

And this hacking into my title imagery has got to stop!

Cue the menacing music…

Bubba’s first appearance…

PP: um, dis is not going to interrupt my presidential campaign, is it?

Mr Bun has a question, daddee.

He’s small for now, but Bubba Bei Bei is shaping up to be a whole lot of panda!

See? I told you it was broken!

More to come next week! Till then…

Don’t flunk cake, ebbryone!

Wands Up!

It’s August and You Know What That Means!

It means it’s time to start celebrating Pinky’s birthday! (Bubba: an mine too! Ping: ping!)

The country said goodbye to John R Lewis on Friday.I am so sorry for John Lewis’ passing, but so grateful for his existence and all the work he did. I believe he has inspired a new generation of activists, which is a damn good thing, since Mittens has taken us back to the same kind of hate and bigotry that John Lewis fought in the 60’s. It’s worse in a way, because you think we would know better by now.

Vote like your life depends on it.

And now, let’s celebrate the life of another icon…

Pinky tests her powers….

National Zoo cub makes mom Mei Xiang disappear

oops.

Princess Pinky is fooled by Mei Xiang at the National Zoo

Oh Princess Pinky, mom has a trick or two up her paw, I think…

Bao bao changes panda cub gender

Pinky is VERY powerful. Be afraid, be very afraid, Mr Wu.

deleted footage from press conference

Pinky answers difficult questions from the press in her own way.

Bao Bao is unhappy

Could Mama Mei Xiang really be contemplating letting Pinky loose on the pandy kindy?

Sochi Winter Olympics, Pandas

I keep hearing the song “bears on the Run” going through my head…the ski run, that is!

Never say “No” to a Pinky!

That one just cracked me up!

Pinky is a star!

Hey, check out the Buy Stuff With Pandas page! We have new felties!

Here I am!

I won’t bore you with my cartoon scheduling minutiae, let’s just say that all is well, and a small bit of operator spacing out was involved.

And now for today’s ‘toon! (Starring Pinky so it was worth waiting for!!!)

Voice of America may have gone to the dogs, but Radio Free Pinky is on da air!!!

Personally, I think the voice of Pinky is much more soothing than that of You Know Who!

Pinky is gonna be in trouble gain, me thinks!
