September Ramblings

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!

Do we have to count panda adoption fees?
Our lack of taste is only exceeded by our sense of the absurd.
Varooooooomba! Thanks to Lynnie Ness for alerting us to the “off label” use of the Roomba robot vacuum cleaner.
Pinky needs stuff and she needs it now!
We’re waiting…*tappity tap pity tap*

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!

Order dates through September 30th for Halloween delivery

Be the Bear!

Trick…or Trick???

Update from Buy Stuff with Pandas!:

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!

“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…

VOTE!!!!!!

Panda On!

It’s not too late to order Halloween Pandas!

Pretty scary, huh?

A Halloween Carol!

Oh my.

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!

you…is…not…da…yawn…boss of…pinky…

Mr Wu makes a very cute ghost, don’t you think?

Hey! who said Wu could poof things?

halloween

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
And remember:

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’s October, and you know what THAT means!

…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?

Oh man! What happens NEXT?????

Panda on!

Just because Halloween is over…

…it doesn’t mean we can’t have a round up of Halloweenie ‘toons from the past.

But first…do you know what happens this weekend?

Bob explains daylight savings time to the panda kindergarten

spring back, fall forward?

And now, I think this is the very first Halloween ‘toon I did…

Trick or Trick!!!!!!!

Okay, so this one is not strictly Halloween, but still…

Pinky

Well, who did you THINK she would enlist in her final attempt to stop Mittens the cat? also not really Halloween, but VERY scary, none the less!

all pandas eve

Okay. That was just WAY too scary.

Ha ha! That Pinky is so clever!

All Pandas Eve part 3

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….

all pandas eve

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!

Panda On!

All Pandas Eve and a Scary Story

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!

scary

Ha ha! That Pinky is so clever!

As we head towards All Pandas Eve …

I used to love All Pandas Eve …all of the little pandas, dressed in their costumes, heading out to trick or treat…maybe to a party…the air crisp and cold as the moon rises or the still visible tree tops and outlines of houses.

Actually, that’s not true. Going out trick or treating for Halloween made me vaguely anxious. I did like have a big bag of candy at the nights end. And that was in the days that you got full size candy bars, not those tiny “snack size” candy bars that you need to eat have a dozen to get a good mouth of chocolate.  Ahem.

So let’s forget about all that and join Pinky and the rest of the junior pandas as they ponder what kind of All Pandas Eve costume would scare the crap out of everyone…

all pandas eve

Okay. That was just WAY too scary.

Panda on!

A Halloween Carol, The Final Episode

The spirits of Halloween past, present, and future have all visited Pinky, leaving her a wiser Pinky, if not…um…completely reformed.

Surely you didn’t think that would happen, did you?

And now, A Halloween Carol, part 10, the final chapter….

Surely you didn't think she would totally reform, did you?

Surely you didn’t think she would totally reform, did you?

I didn’t know Pinky knew the word “share,” did you?

Don’t forget! Copies of The Panda Chronicles Book 6: We R Endangered are now on sale, along with all the other Panda Chronicle books! Did I mention they make excellent presents?

Be the bear!

A Halloween Carol – Part 7

We are getting down to it now! The spirit of Halloween present (NOT presents!) has just arrived and has a list and is checking it twice. And what list do we think that paragon of panda obstreperousness is on?

You be the judge, in episode seven of A Halloween Carol...

Uh oh, the ghost of halloween present just caught up with Pinky...

Uh oh, the ghost of halloween present just caught up with Pinky…

Meanwhile, copies of The Panda Chronicles Book 6: We R Endangered are reaching their new homes and sounds of laughter are welling up around the globe. Do you have YOUR copy yet? Well why the heck not? Support panda satire! Save the pandas! We R Endangered!!!!
