Sunday With the Wu Self

While the completely Unfair and SAD!!! DC #PandaCamShutdown is happening, pressure is mounting on those other zoos with panda cams! Six and Sebben are feeling the strain to be cute non stop, and while Mr. Wu is in his prime years of panda stud-muffinhood, the strain is getting to him too!

Let’s look back on the early days of the Wu-self when he was not quite so pleased to share the spotlight with the other up and coming pandas!

where happy pandas eat bamboo, oh why, oh why, can’t…Wu?

Please refer any questions to Mr Wu’s legal team.

Mr Wu tries to take charge

Uh oh. All is not well in Pandyland!

mr wu speaks out.

Is this a personality or what?

Of course, we remember that OTHER goobermint shut down. That time it WAS the Congress’s fault!

How much can a small panda stand?

Beware, the power of the paw!

Panda on!

Don’t forget to keep your eyes open for the launch of our Kickstarter campaign to produce the first in (we hope) a long line of Panda Chronicle Pins! Coming THIS THURSDAY! I will try to have the opening bell (metaphorically speaking) as close to Noon PST as I can manage! Stay ‘tooned!

31 Days of Pandas: Day 31!!!!This is IT!!!!

Yep, we have lived through another 31 Days of Pandas, and for this (and the previous 2 years), I think I can speak for us all when I say that we really needed a little pandish hilarity.

Now, it’s time for a little panda party!

Nobody parties like a panda!

This is still one of my favorite ‘toons!

new years eve party, panda kindergarten

The panda kindergarten at their best…or is that worst?

Is 2019 going to be any better?
Nah, probably not.
Panda on anyway

See ya next year!

31 Days of Pandas: Day It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Crispmoss

Yes it is Day 25 of 31 Days of Pandas, otherwise known as Crispmoss among the panda set. I would like to point out that it is 46 degrees inside my house, as the electric power has not yet returned. Because of my extreme dedication, I am at the library, preparing this and the next few days of 31 Days of Pandas posts so not a single post is late.

Am I wonderful, or what????

For those who said “Or what,” I am going to tell Pinky you said that and she will do something to you I’m sure. Maybe give you a medal, maybe poof you, I don’t know. Just for that, I am going to torture you with extending Pinky in Wonderland for one more day and instead, bring you this encore presentation of everyone’s favorite holiday classic…

Have yourself a pandy little Christmas….

It’s a Wonderful Life, starring non other than The Wu Self! Enjoy!

Thank goodness Bee the Bear still has her magical wand from the last adventure.

It's a wonderful life

It's a Wonderful Life Parody

finale of wizard of wu

All well that ends well. Now let’s have some cuppycakes!!!

We hope you enjoyed this encore presentation of The Wizard of Wu! We also wish that this took your mind off of some of the horrible things that have been happening, at least for a little while. Now, get back out there and VOTE!!!!

Be the Bear!

Well this is a fine kettle of fish…

Oh dear. Why did I think that a bunch of rich, white, male Senators would give any credence to what a woman had to say. Sorry to ruin your Friday morning, but if you thought the Senate Judiciary Committee (run by the Repugnant Republicans) was going to…oh, I don’t know…call for a full investigation to either prove or disprove the allegations against the Supreme Court nominee, but oh noOOOOOO. We can’t have that. We might have to believe the women and we know that is just not going to happen.

So, I realize I have too choices here. I could search for all the darkest ‘toons, and sink into the pit of despair (taking all of you with me for company) or…I could search for the pandiest ‘toons that bring us joy. Because we need it, I need it. The world needs it.

Pandas will always #RESIST

Huzzah! Bring pandas to Washington State!

Panda Satire Made Easy

Panda satire explained for you!

I'm not a doctor but I play one on television

Bob, Bob, Bob…when will you ever learn?

Never say “no” to Pinky!

Mei puts her paw down…

Mr Bun has a question, daddee.

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

Nooooo! Not the PINK crayon! and yes, there really is a Panda Chronicles Coloring Book.

What goes around, comes around…

And because this may be my favorite ‘toon ever….

See? I told you it was broken!

Well, I hope this extra helping of pandas being silly has helped you deal with the news of the day, but we have have work to do. Call your Senators, tell them what you think, and remind them that you are paying attention, and that you VOTE.

And then in November, please please please VOTE

Pandas and people are counting on you.

It’s Fabulous Furry Friday, I think…

It’s Friday, the empire is crumbling before our very eyes, and I just had cake, although it didn’t have frosting, so I guess we can say that it’s all coming out pretty much even, right?


Oh heck! let’s look at some vintage pandas!

mr wu speaks out.

Is this a personality or what?

Yun Zi leaves for China

There’s no place like home…

Yun Zi leaves his San Diego Home for China

Leaving the nest is never easy.

No nonsense to be found here!

I smell frosting!

I have extra frosting!

Well, that’s all I got for you today. The news from the home of our nation’s first panda family is all kinds of crazy. You can find me…well…hopefully they can’t find me…hanging out with pandas

Be the bear, every one!

It’s Pinky’s (AND Bubba’s) Birthday Season

Yes, we are in the fogs of August, here in the other Washington, and you know what that means! It’s Pinky’s (and Bubba’s) birthday month, so we will be featuring ‘toons about Pinky and  Bubba all month long!


But first, a poem, by Pinky, to celebrate the occasion:

Thirty days, has September
Why dis is, i can’t remember.
august is da monf of ME
its days number thirty three.

boo boo says dis isn’t true
but what does his truth have to do
wif princess pandas such as me,
cause i need at least thirty three

days to celebrate my birth,
because i know what i am  worth.

da monf dat brought us such meihem!

oh, an’ also cuzzin wu
a minor monf, july, it’s true.
so hurry up an’ buy me presents
an’ dose cards dat you has sent us.

boo boo says it’s his monf too,
but i am sure dis can’t be true.
so bake a cake so we can party
cause august is da monf of pinky!

by pinky panda, a really good pome, dat mostly rhymes.

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

Mr Wu tries to take charge

Uh oh. All is not well in Pandyland!

Zhennie’s Wild Adventure: the Finale

Zhennie’s wild adventure may be coming to an end, but only time will tell if a little cuppycake is in the oven, so to speak! Stay tuned to whatever real panda network you watch, to see if there are announcements of a little half wild bundle of joy! Of course, since her dad Gao Gao is also wild, this would make any resulting cubs…um…well, I don’t do math, so someone else will have to figure this out.

Math is not my friend!

But let’s see how Miss Zhennie’s adventure ends!

All’s well that ends well!

Be sure to tune in next week (not to mention this Fabulous Furry Friday) because now that it’s August, you know who has a birthday coming up! (Note from Bubba: akshually it is TWO birfdays coming up!)

See you then!

Zhennie’s Walk on the Wild Side

Today I went to the arts and craft store in my town, and as I was making my purchase, we discussed this adorable fabric with pandas, and the young woman waiting on me said she liked pandas too, so I gave her one of my yourbrainonpandas cards, and she said, “OMG! I read Your Brain on Pandas all. the. time! I have some of the books! I’ve been reading them since I was 13!”

Made. My. Day.

Just goes to show you. You never know the reach of your art. Keep doing it!

And now, back to….Pandas!!!

Oh, boys!!! Here I am!!!

be the (wild) Bear!

Zhen Zhen Goes Walkabout

We have one more story we must address before we return to our feature presentation, Pinky in Wonderland! A few months ago, it was revealed that San Diego’s former panda princess, Zhen Zhen, aka Zoomie, was allowed free access to the wilder world, in hopes she would bring home a nice panda boy from a fine family. Or something like that.

So, what happens when pandas go walkabout?

Zhen Zhen

Adventures in Pandyland!

Stay tuned!

Viva les pandas!
