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!

Be the Bear!

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!

Be the Bear!

Put a Tiger in Your…Selfie?

So, you all remember Pinky’s scheme during the 2016 election, where she let people into the tiger yard to take selfies. (for a fee, of course! Tigers don’t grow on trees, you know!)

Mommee Mei put a stop to that, thank goodness!

Oh…um…THOSE tigers…

And don’t forget to check out the new panda felts on the Buy Stuff with Pandas Page! They are pandariffic!

Be the bear!

Surely You Didn’t Think Pinky would Get Away Unscathed, Did You?

Too bad for Pinky that her little brother and his friend Ping Ping, and their cousins from Atlanta are getting a little more assertive! She can’t get away with nearly as much Pinky-like behavior without them striking back!

Do you remember this old joke?

You better go catch it!!!

The old jokes are not forgotten. Sometimes they even get to be president!

Panda On!
Bob T Panda

Felty Panda NooZ!

As of today, with the exception of one package that the person is not ready to receive yet (She probably wants to do some special shopping for Pinky!), ALL the felty pandas from the Kickstarter project have gone out! This is exciting because it means:

  1. I have made about 200 felty pandas thus far
    and
    2. I have already started of the recent new felty panda orders! (you know who you are!) I will email you as your pandas are ready to travel. Thanks to my newly mastered skill of printing flat rate priority mail labels from home, I can mail things without having to dawdle around the post office for long stretches of time! Huzzah!

May the Fourth Be With You ( day late, but…)

Even though I saw the original Star Wars movie when it came out, it took me years to get this joke. What can I say? Sometimes I am not all that on top of things.

Meanwhile, COVID19 rages on as does the Malignant Orange Menace. Wearing masks is recommended and so the good folks at Redbubble added masks to their line up of products that artists can add their creative stamp to.  If you need a mask, I hope you’ll check out my offerings at Redbubble!

Meanwhile, Pinky has decided to contribute to the mask making cause…in her own way, of course…

Wait…we get paid?

Panda on!
Bob T Panda

Just one of the new designs for my shop at Redbubble!

It’s Sunday *gulp* Funday!

While the news makes it feel more like Sunday, Bloody Sunday instead of Sunday Funday, here at The Institute for Contemporary Panda Satire, we are dedicated to bringing you fun with pandas!

A quick note: We are ready to start taking orders for more felty pandas! All the information can be found on the Buy Stuff With Pandas page, which you can find right here! You can also order the first group of Panda Chronicle themed Washi tape!

Pinky is a Star (not to mention a icon) and she is ready to be your emotional support panda…well, if you let her be president she will! Wearing her signature tutu and her tiara, Pinky is ready for you to grant her all her wildest dreams. hey! This is Pinky we are talking about. You didn’t think she was here to serve you, did you?

But now, let’s jump into the panda way-back bus and see what encore presentations there are for your Sunday relaxation!

Oh dear….are you going to leave her there?

There must be cake!

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

The forces of Meihem are only barely in check.

But at least Pinky didn’t FLUNK CAKE!!!!!

“Oh yeah…dere MIGHT be one or two other pandas in it, but I can’t remember who.”

Never say “no” to Pinky!

And it was ever thus….

Meihem, not Mayhem.

Well, they did hang their coats up.

Introducing Princess Dumpling

Wait a minute…triplets??????

We hope you enjoyed a completely Mittens free Sunday! I sure needed that and I bet you did too! Don’t forget to check out the new line up on the Buy Stuff with Pandas Page!

Panda on!

Day 27 ~ 31 Days of Pandas

Yesterday’s ‘toon made me think about all the other occasions that Mei Xiang delivered some resolutions for Pinky, so I thought that today’s ‘toon round up could feature those ‘toons! (Pinky: I don’t know why! I’m already perfect!)

Is Pinky perfect? You be the judge!

Princess Pinky helps with new years resolutions

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

resolution

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!

This one is not “resolution” based, but is one of my all time favorites!

See? I told you it was broken!

Day 26 ~ 31 Days of Pandas

Wow! 31 Days of Pandas is on the downhill slide once again! I hope it’s been as much fun for yours it was for me to revisit these classics of panda satire! January will feel almost like a vacation since I won’t have to post every day!

Where we’re at….

I’ll be back on my schedule of new ‘toons every Tuesday and Thursday, and a selection of favorite ‘toons from the archives on Sundays. In January, our encore presentations will focus on the year in review, as I look back to see what was going on each month of the year.

You might have noticed that I didn’t not get around to putting out a new book in January of 2019, and before I knew it, it was December! How the heck did THAT happen? Well, I guess we were all a bit distracted by the fall of Democracy and the various crimes in plain sight by HWMNBN. It was suggested to me, that I look at the ‘toons from 2018 & 2019, and do a compilation on ‘toons about politics! I think that could be very instructive!

I am in the midst of my usual year end practice of looking where I’ve been, and figuring out where I’m going. The political mess has led me to spend too much time raging on Twitter and seeing if You Know Who has had a stroke or committed any overt acts of violence in public. It’s a dilemma: I want to hang out with you all, but I also need to get paintings, pandas (and of course needle felted pandas!!!!) done. So, no more mornings on the internet. Hanging out with you all will be my reward at the end of the day after I’ve actually gotten something done!

Meanwhile, let’s see what Pinky and Bubba are up to. Isn’t it time for Pinky to get her list of resolutions for the new year from mommee?

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

Be the Bear!

A Halloween Carol

Yes, it’s time for that other holiday favorite, A Halloween Carol! (With apologies to Dickens! Sorry, Chuck!)

Let’s get right to it, shall we? Our story opens….

Bubba’s first feature role!

you…is…not…da…yawn…boss of…pinky…

Mr Wu makes a very cute ghost, don’t you think?

Hey! who said Wu could poof things?

halloween

One of Pinky’s misdeeds has come back to haunt her… can her campaign survive this?

Hmmm… Pinky still does not seem impressed. Perhaps the ghost of Halloween present will have more influence over her.

Uh oh, the ghost of halloween present just caught up with Pinky…

Was that list in small type, single spaced?

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

Surely you didn’t think she would totally reform, did you?

This series was originally broadcast in September and October of 2015.

Let that be a lesson to all who need a lesson, AmIRight?

Panda on!
Bob T Panda

And as a special bonus:

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