Oh my goodness! It’s Day 31!!!! It’s New year’s Eve in my time zone. for some of you, it’s already next year! What ever time zone you are in, take a deep breath, sleep in, if you can, and think about how you are going to combat authoritarianism this year!
I’m going to do it by speaking out here, and in the real world, and keep drawing my ‘toons that speak my truth!
Keep being the bear!
WE need to do better in 2020! What can possibly go wrong?
It’s Day 30 of 31 Days of Pandas! Thank you for joining me for this month-long Pandapalooza! It is always fun dipping into the archives to see what floats to the surface!
We are looking at a very stressful year ahead. HWMNBN is not going to go quietly into the night like Nixon did. He is going to go kicking and screaming and saying UNFAIR WITCH HUNT all the way. We need to be very brave and stand up for the Constitution and for Democracy. We need all the pandas and frosting that we can get!
To that end, let me leave you with some of my all time favorite ‘toons from over the years!
Ever wondered where all these pandas came from?
The panda kindergaten knows where you live.
An explorer’s work is never done.
Pinky answers difficult questions from the press in her own way.
Thanks a lot, Leslie. I think you gave Pinky this idea.
Oh those red pandas! They are such characters!
…and due to the International women’s day strike of 2017
Well *bleep* and take your *bleep* and stick it *bleep*!!!!
2019- We introduced Frank and Mikey late in 2018 (when they allegedly ate Supreme Court nominee Bart Kravenclaw) and I think these (non-panda) bears are here to stay!
I hope you enjoyed this look back at panda satire through the years since we started this blog! Tune in tomorrow for the 31st day of 31 Days of Pandas, and all next month as we do our Year in Review on Sundays!
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!
You say you want a resolution, well, you know, it is hard to change a bear….
Once again proving the intransigence of Pinky, and the omnipotence of Mommy Mei
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!
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…
I hope you are spending the morning in your PJ’s, surrounded by those you love. Holiday’s are not all they are cracked up to be, for many people, so if you have a complicated relationship with supposed joyful times of year (whatever holiday you do or don’t celebrate) cut yourself a great, big length of slack. Just remember, if your holiday is not what you wish it was, Donald tRUmp’s is turning out even worse than that. 🙂
Meanwhile, sit back and enjoy our feature presentation (starring Pinky!!!)…
101 Bebe Panda-Nation!
Zank hebben…for leettle bears!
Wait…who did you say is the star?
How many times do we have to tell you, DON’T ANSWER THE DOOR!!!!!
Babette can talk anyone into anything.
When trouble arrives, it’s time to call for some MEIHEM!!!!!
This may be a job for…Inspector Panda!!!!
Inspector Panda has arrived! He’ll…um…solve everything!
Where is Babette taking them?
Cue the scary music!!!!
Will Pinky save the day?
How about that! Pinky DID save the day!
Happy New Year’s Eve and a (Im)peachy New Year!
Be the Bear!

My sincerest thanks, and fondest thought are with you all! Thanks for another great year in panda fandom!
Yes, it is indeed Christmas Eve at last! Huzzah! Brew up some cocoa, get your cookies all lined up, in order of preference, and get ready to watch another holiday classic tomorrow, ALL episodes of 101 Bebe Pandas!
But now, I promised you the conclusion of our newest holiday (instant) classic…
Mei Xiang’s Nightmare Before Christmas! Get out your hankies so you are ready for the happy ending!!!
I TOLD you there would be a happy ending! Would I lie to you?
Bob ho-ho-ho T Panda Treason’s Greetings!
Just in case you need something festive for your holiday caroling…oh Tidings of treason and Greed!
Well, I’m sitting here listening to the “debate” in the house over all of 45’s crimes. Sigh…I think I got it right in yesterday’s ‘toon, quite frankly. I’ve been listening to Rachel Maddow read her new book Blowout, which is all about the oil and gas industry and how Russia is entangled in all of it. It’s a serious read with all sorts of tales of incompetence and corruption. You might need to read a little bit of The Panda Chronicles in between chapters!
Meanwhile, here is the next episode of Mei Xiang’s Nightmare Before Christmas!
Hold it right there, panda boy!

Just thought I’d pop in here with a thought about a Kickstarter Make 100 project for January. I’m thinking felted pandas… Whaddya say?
Ah! it is Impeachment Eve! I’m going to be heading out to our local demonstration. I don’t think it will be as big as the one the day after the “inauguration” of our national nightmare. Still, it will feel good to join with other people who are frustrated with the path HWMNBN has been leading this country. In the words of The Dude, and of Mr. Wu…
towards the shortest day of the year…
towards the vote to impeach HWMNBN
TOWARDS THE END OF 31 DAYS OF PANDAS!!!!!!!
We shall have one more day of kinder, gentler pandas from a more innocent time, before heading paws first into the maelstrom! A healthy serving of cake (by which I mean a really large one with extra frosting) may be in order as well.
Invite Pinky to your holiday parties, with this Pinky Paper Doll!
Princess Pinky and her very first tutu, gifted to her by her big brother Tai Shan!
Just the thing for a cozy evening at home with mom and the panda cam!
Huzzah! It’s Bert and his brother Ernie!
…and their jammies! Huzzah!
downloadable paper panda upgrade
Ready for panda kindergarten!
Happy 100th day Birthday! More frosting!
What the well dressed panda cub is wearing this season!
Still one of my favorite ‘toons…
You better watch out….
This ‘toon from December of 2015 demonstrates that we knew what we were in for, from HWMNBN. Our Werld Peez Pandifesto:
