A special guest appearance…

Every once in a while, I get a special request from a regular reader (may I say fan?) of The Panda Chronicles, for a special ‘toon. In this case, the D.C. mom of adorable doxies about town, Bella and her little sister Moneypenny, wanted them to appear in a ‘toon. She graciously allowed me to share it here. I hope you enjoy it.

Even pandas need pets!

And look! No politics whatsoebber!

Panda (and puppy) on!

Fabulous Furry Friday…um I mean FriBEI!!!!

We are headed in to the high season of the panda birthday season, and it is never too early to start celebrating the July 29th birthday of the one, the only, the most adorable panda EBBER, the real Wu Self! He was my first baby panda, and so he’ll always be most special to me. Pinky may rant and rage about this, but what can I say? My heart will always belong to Wu!

Let’s get started! WuWuWuWu WU-HOOOOOOO!

“Howdy do! I’m Mr. Wu! Who are you?”

“Wu calls his dance, ‘Ode to a Weaf’ “

Thank you all for coming! Buy my book here!

Yo ho ho and a bottle of BooBeer!

“You are right and Wu is wrong…I’ll never do it again, mommy.”

You can read all about ALL of Mr. Wu’s adventures in his very own (almost Pinky free) book, The Panda Chronicles Book 4: The Book of Wu, available at a computer terminal near you!

And be sure to check out my new Pandreon Page, for those of you who would like to do more to support panda satire! It comes with a super secret page just for panda satire supporters!

Keep supporting panda satire, calling your Congressional representatives, and fighting fascism and injustice! It’s a tough job, but somebody’s gotta do it.

BE THE BEAR!

Don’t let the Panda Fly the Helicopter

What could possibly go wrong?

Pinky, Bubba and Ping are heading for home, but surely you didn’t think this would go smoothly, did you? Did you????

Did you?

I wonder what this button over here does….AAAAAHHHHHHHH!

Celebrating 10 years of Panda Satire

Today, we’re celebrating 10 years of panda satire! I didn’t actually start posting ‘toons online until 2009, but I started drawing panda satire in 2008 after seeing an article about the panda ranches written by James Fallows.

Let’s take a look at some of the early ‘toons, have a few cuppycakes, and celebrate 10 years of Being the Bear!

Ever wondered where all these pandas came from?

Is it that time already?

Can Mehitabel endure the tidal wave of pandas?

You can’t be too careful!

Ha ha! Here’s a toothbrush!

Panda Talk! My favorite show!

Panda On!

Don’t forget to tune in Sunday for the next installment of “The Toronto Farewell!”

Day 29: 31 Days of Pandas

Before there was Pinky, there was…the panda kindergarten!!

Oh me, oh my! The pandasphere is buzzing tonight! will Pinky win her division in the Global Giant Pandy Awards? Did Bubba get what he wanted for CrispMoss? What will happen when Pinky, the Meihems, Wu, and all the rest get home from their adventure? Will EVERYONE get grounded?

I guess you’ll have to tune in on Sunday for the conclusion of our story!

But in the meantime (and for the next few days) it’s STILL 31 Days of Pandas time!!!!

What could be more scottish than Pandas?

And it’s never too early to start getting ready for New Year’s Eve!

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

I’m not a doctor, but I play one on television.

You say sumi-e, I say Tsunami

You left the panda kindergarten alone with my house?

It wouldn’t be CrispMoss without…

Hope you have enjoyed our trip down panda-satire-memory lane!

Pinky is in trouble … Again!

Oh that Pinky! Trouble seems to follow her like a long streamer of toilet paper stuck to her paw. She would not get in nearly so much rouble if it weren’t for the Meihems yanking her chain and egging her on! If only there was some rational….some defense that she could call on..

Well, we’ll think about it and get back to you on Wednesday.

In the meantime, there’s no trouble like Pinky trouble!

trouble…trouble…trouble…It starts with “T” and that rhymes with “P” and that stands for Pinky!

Hmmm…maybe I need to do a pandacized version of The Music Man!

Panda On!

Some Pandas Leave – Some Pandas Return

It’s one of those things that most lovers of all things panda have a bit of a hard time with: We don’t own our pandas, we only rent them. America has not owned their resident pandas since the Nixon Pandas came to live here in 1972. And not only that, any panda cubs born here still belong to China and these pandas return to China any time after they are two years old. Well, return is not really correct, since they were born here, but that’s how it’s thought of in the panda procurement department.

As much as we’d like to keep all of our American born pandas, it’s just not gonna happen, so save your petition writing for your Congressperson.

A panda can dream though…

But some pandas go both ways!

Stay tuned in the upcoming weeks as I share my adventures with real, actual pandas!

Is Our National Nightmare Over Yet?

I have…um…stepped away from the computer for a few weeks to have a confab with my panda cousins in China. (More about that later.) I’m pretty sure that it is safe to assume that there has been a  national nightmare or three in my absence.

Over the past 10 months I’ve done a lot of pondering, and one of the questions that I have been pondering is this: If the internet with such plentiful and easy access to information, had existed in the 1930’s would Hitler have come to power, so easily? I started asking myself that on November 9th, thinking that surely, with everything happening in full view, surely democracy could not be overturned so easily.

It appears I was wrong. Our national nightmare is in full tilt chaos, despite (or maybe because) so much unfiltered and unverified information  zipping around the airwaves.

I don’t know what to do, besides draw more pandas.

national nightmare

When, oh when, will this be over?

I’m really hoping that I’ll wake up soon.

Really

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?

Last Supper, Cupcakes, DaVinci

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!

Why does mommee get so mad …?

Gee, it beats me, Pinky, could it have something to do with…oh…I don’t know, the fact that you tried to poof your little cousins into oblivion? Possibly? Who knows! Maybe she’s just being hormonal or something. Anyway, I’m sure you’ll figure out some way to get out of being grounded before too long. She can’t stay mad forever!

And Poor Bubba! Getting grounded after getting poofed while protecting the little twins! Life just isn’t fair sometimes.

But now, on with the show!

mad

I think I see a slight resemblance to a Pinky tantrum…just saying.

And just look at that smug look on Pinky’s face! She knows she won’t stay in trouble for very long!

Panda on!
