Episode 10: 101 Bebe Panda-Nations

And a Merry Christmas to you all!

My Saturday routine, for sometime, is to head up to my panda studio while still wearing my PJ’s, coffee in paw, and listen to NPR while I work on the weeks cartoons, by this time in the week, finishing up inking the previously penciled pages.

I was surprised this morning to hear a broadcast of The Vinyl Cafe, which was the last recorded and previously un-aired Christmas show, shortly before the show’s creator, Stuart McLean passed away from cancer. Stuart  was headed for treatment, but instead, he died within a very short time after this show was recorded. I started to tear up as I heard his voice, still so strong and full of life. His stories always made me smile. Sometimes they made me cry. His storytelling shoes are large. They will not be filled by me, but maybe someday someone will be able to, if not fill them, then walk beside them.

Telling stories is an important part of our lives. Sometimes stories are true. Sometimes we wish they were. We tell stories about the places we live, and the people we know there; the people we admire; the people we fear. We tell stories of the things people do, both the good things and the not so good. We’ve had a bit too much of the latter in the past few years. But there are so many people doing good things, even if they are drowned out in the news by the evil that some human beings inflict on others.

I hope that my stories of pandas bring light into your life. They make me happy to write and draw. I love every one of these pandas. I guess they are my imaginary friends. You can never have too many friends, imaginary or otherwise.

Peace and Pandas to us all…

Will Pinky save the day?

Episode 6: 101 Bebe Panda-Nation

Pinky has called in reinforcements, knowing that she will be in big trouble if she doesn’t get her brother and all the rest of the baby pandas left in her charge, back from the evil Babette!

You shouldn’t have opened the door, Pinky!!!!!!!

This may be a job for...Inspector Panda!!!!

I hope everyone is enjoying their 31 Days of Pandas! I know that it’s helping to distract me from…um…stuff. Like the fall of civilization. I think I need a cuppycake.

Panda On!

101 Bebe Panda-Nation part 3

Uh oh. The villain of the piece has arrived. Babette de Panda: international panda of mystery! (She may be French!) Fortunately, she was able to fit us into her busy schedule, because when there is evil that needs to be done, no one does it better than Babette! Get ready for the next episode of 101 Bebe Panda-Nation part 3!

Wait, Pinky! Don’t answer that door!

Babette can talk anyone into anything.

And in other news…the 2018 Pandamonium Convention of panda lovers is happening! If you think maybe you need to take a trip to Pan-Diego next spring, why not make it in the company of 59 other panda fans? The plans are made, the dates are set…if you are thinking that this might be fun,  check out the Convention Facebook page here.

If this tickles your panda fancy, email the address listed on the image or contact me via the contact form and I’ll send you to the right place.

In honor of the upcoming convention festivities, all of my 31 days of pandas extra posts will be from the collected ‘toons about the Wu Self, famed resident of the San Diego Zoo!

Or you could, you know, get your own copy of Book 4 of The Panda Chronicles: The Book of Wu.

101 Bebe Panda-Nation Episode 2

I loved that classic 101 Dalmatians, but the lead villain, Cruella deVille was just way too scary. I hope you agree that Babette is a much more cuddly and adorable villain. She has taken a little time off from her very important role in The Pandyland Mysteries series (still waiting for it’s forever home!) to join in for this holiday fun!

And now, on with the show!

How many times do we have to tell you, DON’T ANSWER THE DOOR!!!!!

A New Feature Story for 31 Days of Pandas

Yes, that’s right! We are approaching 31 Days of Pandas, a Panda Chronicles tradition since…um..well, I can’t remember when I started it. As with recent years past, I have a bit too much on my plate  to bring you a new ‘toon every day, but just think of it as Fabulous Furry Friday EVERYDAY!!!!

I’ll still be posting new ‘toons on Sunday and Wednesday, as per usual, but on other days, I will share some of my favorites from the archives, and I think many of them are appropriate to the season. And who knows. I may be able to pop out an extra new ‘toon to two here and there.

There are so many new readers who haven’t yet become inundated acquainted with all the characters and story lines, so this is a good chance for you to catch up! It’s also a good time to remind you that Panda Chronicles books make the best Holiday presents! 

But without further ado, here is the introduction and first installment of our newest feature presentation, the worldwide intergalactic third house from the corner premiere of:  101 BeBe Panda-Nation!

Wait…who did you say is the star?

Panda On!

BTW, you may have been hearing all this stuff about Net Neutrality and how it might go away. WTF is that, you might ask? Net Neutrality helps to ensure that little guys (like me) have as much access to the cyber waves as folks like…say…Facebook. If you think a level playing field is a GOOD thing, consider dropping your representative in Congress and the chairman of the FCC a line and tell them so.
