As with most of the panda adventures, I have no idea how many episodes this one will have, as they are written…um…somewhat on the fly, maybe 2-4 episodes at a time. But A Christmas Carol just called out to me, because of its themes of self interest and redemption. (What? a panda with extreme self interest? Who could you be talking about?)
So, join us for this next episode of A Halloween Carol, ‘kay?
And isn’t Bubba doing well in his first cartoon adventure? In case you noticed that I just slipped a name in there for our nation’s youngest panda, it’s true! I have. I had been struggling with a name for him and nothing was coming to mind. He has been growing quickly from his butterstick origins, already reaching three pounds, ahead of his older siblings at this age.
Alert and faithful Panda Chronicles reader and panda watcher Anne Lane Witt started calling him Bubba a few weeks ago, and I think the name fits, especially in light of his…um…girth. So congratulations for being the first to name that panda (at least with a name that will stand the test of time! He won’t be “little” anything for long!) Hmmm… wouldn’t Name that Panda! be a great game show on the Panda Channel/ZooNooZ network? The Institute for Contemporary Panda Satire salutes you, Anne!
Be sure to tune in to Fabulous Furry Friday, when we reveal our cover and title for Book 6 of The Panda Chronicles! And don’t forget to come back next Sunday for Episode 3 of A Halloween Carol!
Be the Bear,
