I Forgot Daylight Losing Time!!!!

What with all the excitement (IMPEACHMENT!!!!) and all the crazy-making BS that’s going on in DC (IMPEACHMENT OBSTRUCTION!!!!) I plum forgot that I had not run my favorite seasonal Panda Kindergarten cartoon last Sunday. I hope you all are not showing up an hour ahead (or is that behind?) of time all this week, due to my thoughtless error.

spring back, fall forward?

The other excitement is that I have launched my Panda Chronicles Sock Design project this week, and people are putting their best (panda) foot forward! Panda Chronicles socks, you say? When did you decide to do that?

Um…last week?

Be sure to head over to the Buy Stuff With Pandas page to see our current designs. Each design will be a limited issue, and depending on how many people want to step out in (panda) style, will determine how many I order. Unlike Kickstarter, where I don’t order the items until the project has closed, with something this open ended, I can’t take people’s money then leave them hanging as to when delivery will happen.

I this case, I decided it was worth taking a gamble on 3 designs, with 50 pairs in each design. As you might have surmised, Pinky is far and away the most popular (Pinky: duh!) but the other designs are holding their own. I hope you will want to add Panda socks to your wardrobe, and might I add that these would be socks that anyone would be happy to receive as a holiday gift!

Meanwhile, let’s look back on some other escapades of the panda kindergarten!

This cartoon is one of Bob’s earliest appearances!

You can’t be too careful!

Ha ha! Here’s a toothbrush!

The very first appearance of the Torch Bears!

The torch bears!

Huzzah! More Wheel…of…PANDAS!!!

Or how about some cuppycakes?

Do we have to count panda adoption fees?

Well, that’s all we have time for today! And for all you DC watchers, remember, if you have to cheat to win, you’re not really winning! #SoMuchWinning

A Note on Panda Commerce: As you may know, I am a one bear band (not the Band-a-Pandas, but that gives me an idea for another pair of socks!!) This means I am not on the computer all the time. (Well, some days it may seem like I am, but really…) As the quantities tick down to 0, you might get nervous if you don’t hear back from me immediately. Don’t worry. I can see the order that the messages come in, and will contact you and send the invoices in that order. In other words, if you haven’t heard from me, no one else has either! Doesn’t that make you feel better?

It’s the Debate Season!

Are you going to watch the next round of Democratic Debates? If so, you might want to warm up by watching the first of the Cake Party debates.

Because you knew this was coming, didn’t you?

At least as informative as those OTHER debates!

Do You Think We Have Enough Candidates Yet?

Time to run around and jump up and down!!!!

This is it! The last day of Mr. Wu’s Pin Project! You still have a few hours to head over to Kickstarter to pledge on our latest project! Huzzah! To inspire you to support our latest project, I thought I’d publish and additional day of ‘toons, celebrating…you guessed it…

Pandas for Kickstarter!

Did you forget to pledge?

Bears Behaving Badly

Well, that headline could include just about anything with the panda kindergarten, or true stories with bears. (Not to mention Princess Pinky!!! Need I say more?) Several of my very alert readers, Sarajane E. and Barbara B. sent me a link to this story about an entire family of bears behaving badly! Hmmm…I wonder if Frank and Mikey were the bears involved? Stay tuned! I’m sure that is soon to be a story that ZooNooZ will be covering!

Let’s take a look in the way back machine at what naughty pandas have been up to!

You can’t be too careful!

Ha ha! Here’s a toothbrush!

Wheel…of…PANDAS!!!!!

Speaking of being mauled by bears…

Farewell Mr. Wu!

It’s a sad day for US panda fans, as this weekend was the last time that the beloved Mr. Wu (the cute Wu Self!!!!) and his mom Bai Yun, would be on view at the San Diego Zoo, home to pandas for 25 years. Bai Yun has lived most of her life here, and brought 6 more healthy cubbies into the world, some of whom have gone on to be parents and grandparents.

I know that they will be loved and well cared for in China, but I still hate to see them go. Thanks for the memories, Mr. Wu. You will always be the first cubby of my heart.

And now, for the final installments of Bears Under the Big Top!

episode 13

episode 14

episode 15

…and it all ends with Mr Wu’s Birthday party! Huzzah!

See? I TOLD you I wouldn’t let anything happen to Mr. Wu!

How about another Wu-toon for the road?

birthday week

It’s so hard to be cool when you still live with your mom.

Be the Bear!

PS: Don’t forget! Our Kickstarter is still gong on! I’ve recently added a new reward, and rewritten the project home page to make it (hopefully) less confusing. Seriously, every time I do this, in some ways it’s like the first time! :-}

More from the Wu Self’s Adventure!

A quick update from our Kickstarter Campaign: We are doing great. I will send out a more organized update in the next couple days, but you should know you still have almost 2 weeks to join in and get your own Bubba and Ping Pins! Check it out!

Meanwhile, back to Wu’s adventure, when he ran off with the Panda kindergarten to join the circus!

A circus of Pandas! (and a cat!)

Will Inspector Panda find a clue?

Wu follows Bee the Bear…into the air!

What does the fortune teller tell Mr. Wu?

Tune in Next Sunday for the exciting conclusion of our story!

Panda On!

Paris Burns, but Babette Persists…

Such a sad day for Paris, for all of France, for the entire world. The Cathedral of Notre Dame has burned, the gargoyles and the world weeps.  Many love it as a religious symbol, many love it as a work of art, a piece of history, a part of culture, a thing of beauty. Who knew how much wood is used in making a stone cathedral. A lot, apparently, because the centuries old wood went up like a torch.

I know if Babette knew of this, she would be devastated.  Maybe she’d even quit running for president.

it was a total coincidence that Babette’s ‘toon should run today.

Meanwhile, over on Kickstarter, things are going fast and furry…I mean furiously! Do take a peek if you haven’t yet pledged!

“If the people hate me, it means they want me to run for president!”

Okay, I may be paraphrasing just the tiniest bit, but in several articles I read recently, Howard Schultz seems to think that the intensely negative response that his announcement of a possible presidential run means…are you ready? It means that “They Like Me! They really Like Me!!!

Um…no. That is not what it means. It means we think you are a deluded tool.

The people have spoken!

Meanwhile, I just got notice that I should have Pinky’s very own pins in my hot little hands by the end of this week. I apologize to those who hoped to have them in time for this weekend’s Pandamonium Convention in Memphis, but I probably won’t receive them till the end of the week. I will be getting them in the mail by the beginning of next week.

Here’s the photo the folks at Pin Game Strong sent me for a sneak peek:

Pinky’s official pin on Pinky’s official card!

If you missed the opportunity to get one of these pins while my kickstarter project was live, never fear! I ordered extra and after I’ve sent them off to all those folks, I’ll let you know how you can get your own Pinky Pin! Stay tuned for the next pin project, coming soon!

Be the Bear!

Stay tuned for the return of Frank and Mikey, later this week!

Hope is the antidote to despair…

I’m feeling a little short on hope, to be honest. It feels like the world is spinning out of control and that the proliferation of evil is increasing exponentially, and those that bring hope and joy and help and comfort into the world have to run triple time with no hope of catching up. There are so many holes in the dam and we just don’t have enough fingers. My heart goes out to the people of New Zealand who have received our unwanted evil export of hate and violence.

Our pathetic excuse of a president says white extremist violence isn’t a thing, and the clueless Howard Schultz thinks that all the people booing and criticizing him means that the people really want him and are excited. Wrong on both counts, you clueless numpties.

But we have to keep hoping, until there is no hope left. Don’t we?

It was #NationalPandaDay yesterday…let’s have some pandas.

Atlanta twin panda cubs Mei Lun and Mei Huan and older prother Po

Huzzah! a guest appearance by little Po! (This was before we knew the Meihems and Po were girls)

In the words of Winnie ther Pooh, “I think it’s time for a little something.

How many times do we have to remind you….

Nothing gets my spirits up more than baby Pinky!

Never say “No” to a Pinky!

Bao Bao is unhappy

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

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