Goodbye, Farewell…nope! Not here!

I know this Sunday will not be Fun Day in our nation’s Capitol this weekend. (And not just because the powers of good are trying to keep the powers of evil from prevailing) The actual Bei  Bei is leaving for China this week, and there will be lots of wailing, gnashing of teeth and rending of garments in the pathways around the Panda House until then.

The dilemma before me when each panda cubby boards the plane, takes their seat in Panda Class, has their first glass of champagne and then flies off to the land of pandas, is do I follow the story line of the young pandas leaving home? I did when Yun Zi left Pandieggo, but I was not a panda watcher when he was a baby, and so, I let him go back to China.

Not so with the cubbies who came after him…

Don’t trouble me with reality. All the pandas who appear in the Panda Chronicles aren’t going anywhere. But here are some of my favorite Bubba ‘toons to help get you through the week…

PP: um, dis is not going to interrupt my presidential campaign, is it?

Mr Bun has a question, daddee.

He’s small for now, but Bubba Bei Bei is shaping up to be a whole lot of panda!

Feed me, Mama!

Really, Pinky….It’s not nice to tease your little brother.

This next one is more relevant than ever…

You better watch out….

I didn’t THINK that Pinky knew the “share” word.

See? I told you it was broken!

How many times do we have to tell you…Don’t make pinky mad!!!!

What’s that blinking red light over there?

I has no sekrets!!!!

You can’t just DO stuff. You need instruction from an expert!

And Now, for Something More Innocent…

…Something more innocent than the current Nooz cycle, that is! (inky can hardly be described as innocent!) When the current occupant (occupier?) of the White House behaves like a pouting toddler, we need some junior pandas to raise the level of discussion.

Where will it all end? I have no idea, but I will keep drawing pandas as long as I can!

Don’t you ebber knock?

Hey! What about more PINS????

For those who are wondering (you were, weren’t you?) I have decided not to do another round of pins and patches before the end of the year. I find I have not nearly enough year left, or energy to add this into the rest of the year. Never fear, I have so many ideas and I really want them to come into being, so the pin/patch project will return after the new year.

That said, I do still have inventory of all the previous pins, including some slightly less than perfect pins that I can sell at a lower price. So, if you want to do a little holiday shopping, feel free to contact me via the Contact Page.  (This is the most reliable method, as FB and Twitter messages can get lost in the shuffle, and don’t even think about asking via a comment thread. The likelihood of me seeing that is less than 50%!)

I’ll try to get things packed and shipped out to you as soon as I can. I usually go to the post office once or twice a week. (I am not Amazon!)

Panda On!

Let’s Celebrate the Canadian Pandas!

How did it ever get to be September? I just can’t imagine how August slipped by with hardly any notice. One of these months I need to completely block out my calendar and stay in bed for a week and read books and eat toast.

Meanwhile, I think it’s time to share our Salute to the Canadian Pandas, because…well, just because!

Pinky and the Twinkies, eh?

“If Pinky is grounded, can I have her dessert?”

uh oh…

Um…I think Pinky has Daddee wrapped around her fuzzy little paw. Just saying.

Ooooh! Did Daddee actually yell at Pinky?

What do you mean you left a note saying they are at my house?

Bubba is having so much fun with his new friends!

Hey! Where did Bubba and Mr. Bun go?

There may be political concussions!

I just love that series of ‘toons! And we are definitely now suffering from political concussions!

Panda on!

It’s Sunday Funday!

You know what we do on Sundays! We rummage through the archives looking for fun ‘toons to share with you again! TBH, sometimes I get an idea for a ‘toon theme when I’m out and about doing stuff, but by the time I sit down at the compooter, I’ve forgotten it already. Actually, I almost forgot what I was writing in the middle of this sentence.

But it’s Pinky’s Birthday season (and BUBBA’S!!!!!) so, it seems like we could still replay some of Pinky’s greatest hits!

So, away we go!

Those girls are a force to be reckoned with.

Never say “No” to a Pinky!

Bao Bao, washington DC cover-up

Oh, Pinky…what have you done?

I have extra frosting!

I love a good art forgery, don’t you?

Never say “no” to Pinky!

And it was ever thus….

Meihem, not Mayhem.

Well, they did hang their coats up.

Panda On!

Birthday week is upon us!

Hmmm…I wonder if anything important is happening this week. Now let me think about it for a minute…

Well, while I’m thinking about it, how about this ‘toon which perhaps explains the beginning of Six and Sebben’s rivalry?

Twinkies 2.0

Twinkies 2.0 put on a show!

Could it be…Mei Watch?

we are still hoping for a panda cub trifecta

Oh yeah… I think it’s Pinky’s birthday soon…and Bubba’s!

National Zoo cub makes mom Mei Xiang disappear

oops.

Princess Pinky is fooled by Mei Xiang at the National Zoo

Oh Princess Pinky, mom has a trick or two up her paw, I think…

If you can’t be in China to celebrate Actual Pinky’s Actual Birthday, why not have a Pinky Paper Doll party!

Bao Bao in her pajamas

Just the thing for a cozy evening at home with mom and the panda cam!

Princess Pinky paper doll

Princess Pinky and her very first tutu, gifted to her by her big brother Tai Shan!

Edgar Degas Little Dancer outfit

Inspired by one of Pinky’s favorite artworks, a sculpture by Edgar Degas, which seems to be in every art museum on the east coast.

Bao Bao paper doll

Just the thing for family parties!

I guess I need to do a Bubba Paper doll too, don’t I?

He’s small for now, but Bubba Bei Bei is shaping up to be a whole lot of panda!

And how did Pinky manage to hack into my computer again?

How many times do we have to tell you…Don’t make pinky mad!!!!

#GreenlandIsNotForSale

Boo Boo’s Bearday is Coming Soon…

Breaking Nooz! Hao Hao of Pairi Daiza in Belgium has given birth to twins. So far, all is going well. They look very round (yay!) and the twin switching seems to be going well! Congratulations to Hao Hao and her entire team and family!

…Now, it seems like there is another Panda Bearday coming up right around then, but I just can’t remember who it is….Heh!

What’s that? I can’t hear you!

Don’t tell me you’re surprised.

Oh yeah…Pinky has a birthday too! I guess we’ll have to feature them both!

And it was ever thus….

One for Pinky, and one for Bubba….

He’s small for now, but Bubba Bei Bei is shaping up to be a whole lot of panda!

Oh dear….are you going to leave her there?

Feed me, Mama!

Really, Pinky….It’s not nice to tease your little brother.

Bubba: i don’ fink it is fair. almost all my ‘toons has pinky in dem!
Pinky: Suck it up, boo boo!
Bubba: don’ call mee boo boo!

What the well dressed panda cub is wearing this season!

Bubba was really hitting  the frosting in this next ‘toon, but it shows the essential difference between Pinky and Bubba!

panda

You better watch out….

Due to the excessive cruelty of the news this week, I think we deserve a couple more, don’t you?

And then there was the day he had to figure out what to wear for his debut…

I’m ready for my close up!

I didn’t THINK that Pinky knew the “share” word.

See? I told you it was broken!

I could not resist including the cute-o-meter! I hope this week is better than last week, but I really don’t have much hope of that. Hope this week’s offerings help!

Panda On!

Shark week!

Shark week, minion week…it’s all the same at The Panda Chronicles! After our brief interruption in service earlier this week, which resulted in no one being able to see the site, we were saved by our new web host and guru over at The Digital Reader. For someone like me, who has a tiny bit of tech knowledge, riddled with vast chasms of ineptitude, someone who actually knows what they’re doing and responds quickly to problems is a good thing indeed!

Meanwhile, Pinky has new minions, but let’s take a trip down memory lane as we recall her minions from her last presydential run!

AAAAAAAHHHHHHH!

Triple Trouble indeed!

What are Pinky and her minions getting up to?

Maybe you shouldn’t plug that many things into an extension cord, Pinky.

did someone turn out the lights?

And Zoonooz is on the job!

Cause and effects are very complicated concepts for baby pandas, don’t you think?

Mei Xiang and the Zoo Director have gotten their panties in a knot, it seems.

Proof positive of Pinky’s persuasive popularity!

Minion security: you can’t be too careful.

Thanks a lot, Leslie. I think you gave Pinky this idea.

Here’s where Panda Week intersects with Shark Week…

It’s Shark Week at the panda kindergarten! Roar!!!!

Have you done all your shopping for Pinky’s birthday????

Be the Bear!
Bob T. Panda Videos are very relaxing Panda

Minions are a Many Splendored Thing…

The fogs of August are almost upon us, and while Congress goes on a six week vacation, (seriously?) the rest of us wish that we could do the same. But there is no escaping the relentless wave that is going to come upon us, and of course, by that, I mean…

Pinky’s cubpaign for President! Um…what did you think I meant?

I don’t think this crew of minions is going to be quite as devoted as her last ones.

Wasn’t it nice of Six and Sebben to come up with this brilliant cubpaign slogan? Those who signed on to Mr. Wu’s Kickstarter campaign will be getting one of these, but I’m guessing there will be a few extra. Stay tuned to learn how you can get one for your very own!

What could possibly go wrong?!?!?!?

One Step For a Small Bear…

…One Giant Panda for Bearkind!!! Yes, it’s the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. I even remember where I was! I was at music camp at West Virginia University, in Morgantown WV, where I had the dubious honor of being last chair, third clarinet, 3 years running! Who needs to practice when you’re last chair? Bonus!

But I digress…Houston! We have a problem!

Let’s celebrate some bears in space!

To the moon, Alice!

For a different sort of space to be lost in…

inside Bob's Brain

What’s that stuff getting all over my paws? Oh…it’s frosting!

THIS is your brain on pandas. Any questions?

#6 is getting ready to make his move!

Huzzah!….ooops.

Did we mention it’s almost time for…Mei Watch?

we are still hoping for a panda cub trifecta

will the pitter patter of little paws soon follow?

To go, where no bear has gone before…
Bob T Panda

Thanks to all who supported the Mr. Wu Pin project! Production is underway, and hopefully we will have them in out paws by the end of August! Stay tuned if you missed our Kickstarter, but still want some goodies! Once we have them in paw, (and we’ve sent them out to our Kickstarter supporters) we’ll let you know how you can get them too!

Pandas have to fill out census forms too…

All the kerfuffle over the census form (“WHY WON’T THE SUPREME COURT LET ME DO WHAT I WANT? THAT’S WHAT I PICKED THEM FOR!!!!”) reminded me of this ‘toon from the last Panda Census:

Do we have to count panda adoption fees?

Pinky’s attempt to recruit Six and Sebben as her new minions reminded me of her previous collusion with small pandas….you could ALMOST have sympathy for the difficulty the WH has to find staff that doesn’t crime….

AAAAAAAHHHHHHH!

Triple Trouble indeed!

What are Pinky and her minions getting up to?

Minion security: you can’t be too careful.

Maybe you shouldn’t plug that many things into an extension cord, Pinky.

did someone turn out the lights?

And Zoonooz is on the job!

Pinky is so good at “Evade the Question”, that she is obviously a natural politician!

Cause and effects are very complicated concepts for baby pandas, don’t you think?

Panda on!
Bob T Panda

Don’t forget! We have 3 more days on our Kickstarter campaign!
