Yes, we are repeating that October tradition of re-running The Wizard of Wu, one of my favorite Wu stories! I remember as a kid, before you could watch whatever you wanted when ever you wanted, that we would wait for the annual re-broadcast of The Wizard of Oz. The flying monkeys always scared the crap out of me, but I had to watch. what if Dorothy didn’t get away from the witch this time? What if Toto ran off and never came back?
You knew that the Ghost of Nixon would not be able to resist commenting on the current emanations coming forth from the clown car that is 45’s house of cards. Really, I don’t know how much more of this we can take! I just read that 45’s defense is the “We don’t think Nixon should have been impeached” defense. What happens when 45 declares he is not going to “co-operate” with the Impeachment Inquiry? I guess we are about to find out!
OOPS! I forgot to set this up last night, as I am still recovering from my little bout of the flu. So here we are, just a little late. 😬🙄 In other news, after having this computer since 2011, I JUST figured out how to add emojis to text this year! Innovation!
But on to the NOOZ!
HWMNBN is having an absolute meltdown since Miss Nancy declared that Impeachment Season was open! While 45 continues to obstruct in plain sight, The House marches on, like the panda kindergarten at the cuppycake bar! Needless to say, we here at The Institute for Contemporary Panda Satire will be reporting the panda (and cat!!!) view of the proceedings!
But enough stalling! It’s Impeachment Day! Everybody drink!
It’s been a long time coming. Hope he’ll be a looooong time gone!
…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?
…And who is to say that they’re not? Personally, we are all kind of endangered at the moment. 45 is about to get a wild as a cornered bear (no insult to bears intended.) We are ALL in the line of fire.
What do Frank and Mikey have to say about this? Let’s see!
Being endangered means never having to say you are sorry.
I am still under the weather with a cold/flu sort of thing, so staying close to home (and to the couch and a beeeg box of tissues) I hope the rest of you are well. I have some news of things that are not happening in the near future, but they will have to wait till I feel better.
While 45 is getting an up close look at what that whole Impeachment thingie is all about, his evil minions are still trying to wreck every thing. I’m a bit under the weather as I write this, so I’ll let Frank and Mikey tell the story!
We are STILL endangered! (with a reprise of last week’s ‘toon)
Despite the fact I sometimes can’t remember where I left my keys, I still remember that August day in 1974 when I watched Nixon resign. I remember being thrilled and scared and maybe a little horrified, that the President was resigning, because he knew he was guilty of the crimes he was about to be impeached for.
Nixon was guilty, but his time in the White House was not without merit!
I am only making some of this up. copyright 2012 -A. Belov
How quaint his crimes look compared to the current occupier of the People’s House. Fortunately, Nixon’s Ghost occasionally drops by at ZooNooZ to enlighten Bob and Mehitabel, and provide context for 45’s reign of corruption.
Can’t ghosts have opinions too?
“And they called ME a crook!”
Editor’s note: These ‘toons are from a year ago. How about it, MacArthur Foundation Fellowship folks… am I a (stable) GENIUS or what??? Do you need my phone number for next year?
And lest we forget that there STILL is no MacArthur Grant for Panda Satire….
Perfect Impeachment Weather!
Panda On, Everyone!

Congratulations to Lynda Barry who actually DID win a MacArthur Fellowship! If you haven’t read any of her work, do it now!
I’m taking today’s ‘toon, a little out of order, because, although I wrote it a couple weeks ago, today it is suddenly relevant. I don’t know how all this is going to proceed. Watching Nancy Pelosi give her speech gave me all the feelings. Pride, fear, love of country, hope for the future, fear that there is still time for HWMNBN to do far more damage than he has already done.
For the first time since tRump came down the escalator to announce his candidacy, I have some hope. Having young people like Greta Thunberg speaking out on the environment, and all those young people fighting for sensible gun regulations, gives me hope for the future. All of the forces of darkness, many of them in our own government, make me very afraid.
But now, it’s time to see what pandas and cats have to say about IMPEACHMENT!
Why do I feel like I’m watching one of the Godfather movies when 45 is talking?
Panda on, like you;’ve never pandaed before!
Bob T Panda
If you haven’t already listened to/watched Greta Thunberg’s speech to the UN yet, I suggest you do so immediately. As expected, the right wing climate deniers immediately started attacking her. I can’t imagine having her passion and commitment, to speak to an international audience with such composure. I can’t listen to this speech and not weep and feel guilty.
How about you? We R All Endangered.
Guess who’s back!
Be the Bear

Psst! Fellow cartoonie alert! Stacey DeHay, close personal friend to Ellie and Edmond has a new coloring book out! Color animals and have fun! Coloring is almost as relaxing as watching panda videos. (maybe you can do both at the same time! You can find it HERE!
Granted, they will not be hosting the Winter Olympics in Beijing until 2022, by which time we could all be dead, but we are so excited that the pandas get another chance to compete! Of course some sort of panda-like mascot has been selected for the 2022 Olympics. Predictably, some have criticized the Olympic committee for “lack of creativity” in choosing a panda as the mascot. To this we say: WHAT ARE YOU FREAKIN’ NUTS???? IT’S A PANDA! OF COURSE THEY CHOSE A PANDA! GET A GRIP!
In honor of this momentous honor for pandas, let’s look back on Panda Olympics past! Huzzah! It’s a double dose of pandas because we REALLY need them!
another boring rerun
Did the Torch Bears take a wrong turn????
This cartoon is one of Bob’s earliest appearances!
The Pandas first attempt at Olympic Glory!
Never underestimate the power of a good “fart joke”
We would like to point out that there were NO TORCH BEARS near the Cathedral of Notre Dame when it caught on fire.
Love the hobby horse on a spring (inspired by a REAL photo of a REAL panda on one.
I keep hearing the song “bears on the Run” going through my head…the ski run, that is!
Uh oh! has there been Russian tampering with the selection of the Torch Bears?
Hey! watch where you put that torch!
Hey! What are you two doing up on top of the ski jump?
Let Pinky be Pinky!
Skate faster, Boo boo!
Four pandas are better than two.
The world swoons….
