As promised, here is the second part of A Halloween Carol (Starring PINKY!!!) and a few random Halloween ‘toons, since it’s actually all Hallows Eve here in the states. (At least until the repugnant-cans declare that it is a pagan holiday, and as such, cannot be tolerated!)
On with the SHOW!
And now, a few of my favorite Halloween ‘toons!
Have a fun and safe Halloween! Don’t eat all the candy before I get there! And don’t forget to vote! Election Day is Tuesday! Local elections are important!
Boy there’s a lot going on! Rumors of a sting operation in Maryland…no, not THAT one! The one where they are planning to use more zebras to lure the remaining escaped zebras back to captivity, Another valiant red panda escapes to join the Red Panda Liberation Front, this time at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle (the scene of another daring escape attempt a few years ago by brave red panda girls)
But I have a story to tell! Would I tell you what was going to happen if I knew? Hmmm…
Fortunately, I have no idea where this story is going!
This is SO exciting!!!!
Don’t forget to ‘toon in Sunday for the first part of another Panda Chronicles Halloween Classic Encore Presentation, the first part of A Halloween Carol! This was Bubba’s first starring role! Okay, Pinky was kind of a star too!
Well, till then, REMEMBER TO VOTE IN YOUR LOCAL/STATE ELECTIONS, ‘toon in to The Panda Chronicles, and Buy Stuff With Pandas!
While the panda birthday season continues (Yang Yang of Zoo Atlanta just had his birthday this week) we have finished with the major birthdays in The Panda Chronicles personalities, so that leaves me with a round up of ‘toons from Septembers!
But never fear! October is just around the corner and we will have our annual broadcasts of The Wizard of Wu and A Halloween Carol, two of my favorite stories!
So sit back, and enjoy while I rummage around in the past September ‘toons from the archives!
We’ll be back with new ‘toons on Tuesday!
BTW: I’m taking orders for halloween felty pandas, so if you would like to add to your themed holiday pandas, now is the time! Order by September 30th for arrival in October!
I just added 3 layer fitted masks to my Redbubble store! Here’s the ;ink where you can search for your favorite designs and see if the masks are available in that design (The formatting did not work for all designs, because of the fitted nature of the masks.) Mask up everyone!
It’s the time of year when little ghosts and goblins go marauding around neighborhoods demanding treats. Alas, not this year, I don’t think. But oddly enough, candy sales are UP! mI have *no* idea why that might be the case.
In honor of the holiday to come here are some of my favorite halloween ‘toons!
Trick or Trick!!!!!!!
Darn those Meihems!!!!
“It was just a suggestion”
Okay. That was just WAY too scary.
Ha ha! That Pinky is so clever!
Will Pinky EVER quit tormenting her brother?
trouble…trouble…trouble…It starts with “T” and that rhymes with “P” and that stands for Pinky!
Make sure Pinky doesn’t try to steal Bubba and Ping’s candy!
Even a year ago things were getting scary!
I can’t believe Bob’s costume didn’t fool anyone!
Oh, and if I haven’t mentioned it 47 times already in the last day…
Things are happening. The WH seems to have become a COVID 19 hot spot. I don’t wish the serious symptoms that this disease can bring on anyone. BUT….My sympathy has to be tempered by the utter lack of precautions that this “president” has taken. So many lives have been lost because the lack of attention to pandemic response and planning that was left to them. To choose not to take this seriously was a choice this “president” made.
But we have more important things to talk about!
Our Cubby TBD is 6 weeks old! Eyes are starting to open! Cuteness is happening! Extreme cuteness is happening! And could there be some skullduggery taking place between Zoo Atlanta and The Pinksonian Zoo?:
Six: hey! Sebben: hey yoorself! Six: I fink our pannacam is off! Sebben: no! whoo could has done such a dastardly thing!?!?!
Six and Sebben: PINKY!!!!!!!!!
And now, because it is October, a fabulous full length feature ENCORE PRESENTATION OF A HALLOWEEN CAROL!!!!!
Bubba’s first feature role!
Mr Wu makes a very cute ghost, don’t you think?
Hey! who said Wu could poof things?
One of Pinky’s misdeeds has come back to haunt her… can her campaign survive this?
Hmmm… Pinky still does not seem impressed. Perhaps the ghost of Halloween present will have more influence over her.
Uh oh, the ghost of halloween present just caught up with Pinky…
Was that list in small type, single spaced?
The Spirit of Halloweens yet to come is not a spirit to be messed with, right?
Surely you didn’t think she would totally reform, did you?
Be the bear, everyone
Wear a mask Wash your paws with soap and water (don’t just lick them!) Stay home if you can
Get a flu shot
…It means it’s time for our favorite spooky Halloween Season Classic Encore Presentations!!! Yes that’s right! It’s time for an encore presentation of The Wizard of Wu followed by A Halloween Carol!!!! Huzzah!
Meanwhile back in the Nation’s Capitol, Impeachment Inquiries are heating up, as HWMNBN can’t seem to help committing more crimes in plain view. I guess he really does believe he could shoot someone on 5th Avenue in broad daylight and not lose any support. What’s going to happen? Your guess is as good as mine, but what ever happens, you can be sure that ZooNooZ will be there to pontificate about it, and make fun of everything else.
Let’s get on with the Wizard of Wu!!!
where happy pandas eat bamboo, oh why, oh why, can’t…Wu?
We’re in for it now, Binky!
Hang on to your hats, kids, it’s gonna be a bumpy ride!
I don’t think we’re in Pandiego any more, Binky….
What could be waiting outside? Where the heck ARE we, Binky?
WE are having a little stretch of non rainy weather here in the Northwest corner of Pandyland. Sunny, cool, crisp days, clear cold(-ish) nights. Just the perfect weather for all the little ghouls and goblins as they wander the streets of Langley, offering to trick you if you don’t hand over the treats. (I do NOT want to see a toothbrush in my bag, thank you very much!!!!) Meanwhile, Pinky and the gang are continuing their All Pandas eve festivities.
Well, at least they will until Mommee figures out what they’re up to. On with All Pandas Eve part 3….
Will Pinky EVER quit tormenting her brother?
Meanwhile, I have been continuing my studies by reading from the masters! This time, I’ve been reading some Doonesbury collections, many of which are from years I missed, because I no longer got a newspaper in which Doonesbury appeared. That’s easy to do when his career has stretched for more than 40 years, starting in 1970. I’m sure it affords him no pleasure to know that his observations and warnings on a certain occupant of the White House, went unheeded. Being right does not always afford satisfaction. No, no no!
Stay tuned on Friday, when I share the next installment of The Wizard of Wu! You can read the whole story all at once in The Book of Wu: Book 4 of The Panda Chronicles! Available NOW! already have it? What a perfect holiday gift for your nearest and dearest!
I am fortunate to live in the rainy Northwest, rather than fire swept California. My heart and good wishes go out to the thousands of people who have lost their homes and businesses from the fires that spread across northern California last week. Those who have known me for a long time know I have my own fire story, which happened 22 years ago last month. It was a scary event. I don’t know that I ever truly processed what happened, but I was traumatized for a long time.
I recently stumbled on the account of one man’s recent brush with fire in the California disaster. But this account was done in comics form, as he is a graphic novelist/comics artist. Here it is, in case you’d like to take a look. I hope someday I can do as well with my own story.
But meanwhile, we have another kind of scary story to tell!
