It’s Sunday Funday! Let’s have Fun with PANDAS!!!!

The sky is gray, but it’s all black and white at the Panda Chronicles!

Yes, it’s Sunday, which is now our day for Encore Presentations of all of my (and I hope your) favorite ‘toons. I spent yesterday at the American Library Association Midwinter Conference in Seattle. It was fun and overwhelming and I came home with piles of new books to read, saw many of my writer/illustrator buddies from SCBWI (Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators) and was in the presence of more people than I usually see in a year.

If I find books in my now huge to-be-read pile that I love, I’ll be sure to pass these titles along as I know many of you love to read things that aren’t even about pandas!

But now, let’s have some of those pandas you love!

I just saw another news story on Twidder about this…

“I’ll have one of these, and one of these, and one of these, and one of…”

what fresh horror

…and she ate the just right cuppycake all up!

31 days

Oh come on…hasn’t that ever happened to you? One minute there are two dozen cuppycakes just sitting there, and the next minute they’re gone?

let there be cake!

Inspired by a TRUE story!

I need to go have some cake!

Panda on!

Fabulous Furry Friday

Oh my…I’m running on empty here, as I’m sure many of you are too. I have some ideas about raising some money to help the efforts at the border to help these kids and parents who have been forcibly separated, but it’s going to have to wait till our Sunday post.

Meanwhile, we do need a little humor to get us through this, so here it is:

let there be cake!


Or how about some cuppycakes?

THIS is your brain on pandas. Any questions?

Here come the pandas!

Reports of possible cubby activity in DC have been coming in to my Twidder and Fezbook feeds. Let’s hope no one tells ICE or the Predator in Chief.

Day 12: 31 Days of Pandas

We’re not even halfway through the month, so there are many more pandas to come!

This is a good thing, because we need LOTS of distractions this month. Between the disaster tax bill (email or call your Congress folks and ask them to vote NO!!!) the slide into the darkest days of the year, and all the craziness in the news, we need all the laughs we can get.

On top of all the nonsense coming out of our nations capitol, recent news of the illness of one of my long time panda fans and supporters has been on my mind. ALS is a devastating disease for which there is no cure. If it seems strange to be concerned about someone I’ve never met in real life, consider this: the people who read my ‘toons here and in books, and who frequently comment here or in conversations on Twidder and Fezbook, have become real to me. They have become real friends.

I’ve gotten to know them through our conversations in these cyber meeting places. They share pictures and stories of their lives. They cheer me on in my various Kickstarter projects. They have embraced these funny panda characters that have sprung forth from my head and they believe in them. They believe in me.  I am so very honored and grateful that you come here and tell me that the day’s ‘toon lifted your spirits, or made you sad, or pushed you to the edge of your seat in anticipation of the next episode.

So, Sandy H, if you are reading today’s post, please know that I have been grateful for the time you’ve been with me. I’m glad you have your family and puppies close at hand to see you through this. You will be missed.

Meanwhile, Let’s Get Some Pandas Out Here…

Tune in tomorrow for the next installment of 101 Bebe Panda-Nations! Huzzah!

We Want More Cake

Because who wouldn’t want more cake or in this case, more cartoons about cake and cuppycakes? I can’t think of any self respecting panda who wouldn’t be saying more cake! more frosting! under similar circumstances.

So let’s have more cartoons about more cake…

There must be cake!

Can you calibrate the cuppycake?

Princess Pinky says, she is thankful for cuppycakes and da panda kindygarten and her magical wand!

Inspector Panda says, “Know the signs of cuppycake dependency”

Legalize cake today! Prevent illicit cuppycake activities.

Escape! Come with me, little cake, so we can be alone together.

“Madame Babette sees all!: I see cake in my…er…your future!”

Panda On!

And a Fabulous Furry Friday to Yoo Too!

Whew! It’s been a busy birthday season here at The Institute for Contemporary Panda Satire! It is entirely possible that we’ve had about as many cuppycakes as we can stand (NO! There can NEVER be too many cuppycakes!) So, for this Fabulous Furry Friday we celebrate…

All things CUPPYCAKE!!!!!

Cuppycakes in art!

let there be cake!

31 days

Oh come on…hasn’t that ever happened to you? One minute there are two dozen cuppycakes just sitting there, and the next minute they’re gone?

another cartoon inspired by real news!

Thanks again to Henry Nicholls for alerting me to this story

I have extra frosting!

can’t I have just one more cuppycake?

Well, that was fun! And when I searched for ‘toons about “cake” I found so many that we might have to do this again next week! So until then, remember to:

Stand on your cake
Defend your cake against mommee
Try not to get frosting on your fur.

Panda on and tune in for the next episode of Being Endangered is SUCH a Curse! It’s getting really exciting, huh? Until then, here is a video of a bear playing the piano!

Day 26: 31 Days of Pandas Continues

So did Santa bring you everything you wanted?

No, me neither. But right around the corner is a brand new year, all shiny and untouched by tragedy and meanness. A new year full of hope and possibility.

I had hoped to have some early sketches of my new work in progress, but I am not that far along yet. You can be sure that when I get there, I will be sharing it right here!

On January 3rd, I will go back to my regular schedule, so no more pandas every day, (boo! hiss!) BUT, two new ‘toons per week, plus encore presentations for Fabulous Furry Fridays (yay! Huzzah!) There’s something to be said for that, right?

So sit back and have some leftover fruitcake and get ready to sing along as 31 Days of Pandas brings you day 6 of the 12 Days of Crispmoss!

Oh…could you not sing while eating leftover fruitcake? Especially not with your computer’s webcam turned on… Ick!

HOW many more days are there?

HOW many more days are there?


Are you singing?

Don’t forget to tune in tomorrow for a brand new cartoon, starring all of your favorite pandas!  While this will be the last NEW ‘toon of the year,  I am already hard at work writing and drawing new cartoons starring all of you favorite pandas!  I hope I will see you all then!

Be the Bear,

Day 18: Today, I am a Bear

We wouldn’t want to appear to be biased towards one holiday over another here at the Panda Chronicles, so even though the holiday of Pandukkah is now over (thank you for that, Nina L.) we celebrate that turning point in any young panda’s life, the Bear Mitzvah! 31 days of Pandas proudly presents…

Today, I am a Bear…

Today, you are a bear.

Today, you are a bear.

...if I were a panda, yadda dah dah da- da- da- AAARGH! I can't stop!!!!!

…if I were a panda, yadda dah dah da- da- da- AAARGH! I can’t stop!!!!! You’re welcome.

Meanwhile, the debates go on….

I’m sure you can trust this cat!

Day 12, 31 Days of Pandas

We’re making a list,
Of presents and stuff,
We hope we get lots,
Or we’ll be real gruff,
Pandy Claws is coming to town!

We put out some cake
With frosting galore,
Hey that looks good,
Maybe I should have more,
Pandy Claws is coming to town!

He knows where you are sleeping,
And when you are awake.
He’s got a list from Pinky,
That will cause his sleigh to break!


You better not get
Into Pinky’s way.
You have been warned ,
That’s all I can say,
Pandy Claws is coming to town!!!!!!

Leaping out of his holiday wrapping, we want to take this little gift home with us!

There's nothing on earth that I'd rather do....

Have yourself a pandy little Christmas....

And don’t forget, tomorrow we reveal Bubba’s official Panda Chronicles outfit! Don’t miss it!

The Season of Cake Part Two

It is my Birthday Season, and that means it is the season of cake! I love cake. Did I mention that? Frosting should be declared a national treasure. Just saying.

I don’t have one of those skimpy one day birthdays. No, I have a birthday season. My birthday season lasts one day for each year old I am, and while I’m not going to reveal exactly how old I am, let’s just say that my birthday season is very, very, very, long. Certain parties, who shall not be named here, think it is entirely too long, and that maybe I should cut back to a birthday week, or at the very least, a birthday month.


So today’s cartoon is about….


Inspired by a TRUE story!

Inspired by a TRUE story!

Yes, It’s true! I heard about it on the internet, so it must be true. Mehitabel is such a spoil sport! I mean these guys are scientists!!!!!!

Well, I need to go…um…have some cake.

Be the Bear (and have cake!)

PS: I finally got that pesky Pinky header off of my cartoon! Who knows what trouble she will get into next!
