Are you excited? I know I am! I am excited for so many things! First, 31 Days of Pandas is my excuse to go full panda for an entire month. Secondly (and very importantly,) the socks are on their way to me even as we speak! The folks down at Pin Game Strong are great to work with. One of the many kind things they do, is to send pictures of the finished items as they receive them, before sending them on to me.
What could be better than wearing pandas on your feet?
I should have the socks in my hot little paws by Tuesday afternoon. My goal is to get them packed and shipped by Friday. There are about a half dozen people who have not responded to their invoices yet, so if you are one of them, please check your spam folder to see if the invoice is there, and pay the PayPal invoice promptly. I won’t be shipping unpaid orders. I’ll send out another reminder on Monday.
Another thing I am very excited about is my new shop on Redbubble!
I’m still getting set up, but there are a whole bunch of fun things you can buy with my pandas on them, AND they are having a site wide 25%-60% off sale, which means YOU can buy MORE Stuff with PANDAS!!!! Here’s the LINK! I have things with Pinky, Bubba, Mr. Wu AND things from Pandamorphosis (For those who like more fine art pandas!)
Welcome to part three of our Encore Presentations of The Wizard of Wu! If you have missed the first two installments, don’t go another click further before you read: Part the First Part the Second
Okay! Is everyone up to date? Here we go!!!!
Sorry, no photo bomb from princess Pinky. her mother thought todays cartoon was too scary for her
Who would have thought cuppycakes could be enchanted?
Stay tuned later this month for the outtakes and blooper reel!
Good witch Bee, the Bear, to the rescue!
Are you SURE you weren’t in an earlier scene?
But we’ve come such a long way already….Bwahahaha!
Ride you pandas! Ride!
Evilness is one thing, but there must be snacks!
Well,lookee here! isn’t that….?
Don’t mess with Princess Pinky!
All well that ends well. Now let’s have some cuppycakes!!!
I hope you enjoyed this annual rebroadcast of The Wizard of Wu! Stay tuned next Sunday when we bring you that other favorite Halloween classic, A Halloween Carol! It stars all of your favorite junior pandas! (Well, most of them, anyway!)
Panda on into my Birthday Season (and you KNOW what I WANT for my birthday!!!!)
It starts with an “I” and is followed by “and removal”
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?
…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 me oh my! We just got the news that there will not be any baby pandas in DC this year! We send our love to Mommee Mei and family, and hope that they (and we!) can get over the disappointment!
Till we have news of the potential pitter patter of little paws in Calgary, we will have to be content for news and pictures of Hao Hao’s twins in Belgium at Pairi Daiza, and Meng Meng’s in Berlin. Not to mention an active baby panda season in China!
Meanwhile, we have mined the archives for some ‘toons about baby pandas! Enjoy!
…baby pandas! You’re getting baby pandas!!!!
“Howdy do! I’m Mr. Wu! Who are you?”
“Wu calls his dance, ‘Ode to a Weaf’ “
And just how did the panda kindergarten get her address?
Such a little darling! How could her big brother resist spoiling her?
Pinky tests her powers….
Huzzah! a guest appearance by little Po!
Bubba’s first feature role!
He’s small for now, but Bubba Bei Bei is shaping up to be a whole lot of panda!
Meanwhile, Beware the Ides of September! And coming soon! Our annual rebroadcasts of The Wizard of Wu, and A Halloween Carol! How’s that for an October Surprise! Bwahaha!

My Bad! But Hey! We’re LIVE!!!!!
Mr. Wu IS a pivotal panda in the rise of panda satire! Better late than nebber!
I think we are almost ready to launch our new Kickstarter Pin Project, featuring, the one, the only, the irresistible Real Wu Self! At noon today PDT, we are planning to be ready to launch. Despite the fact that I am a bit behind on this, due to several circumstances beyond my control, and a rather overwhelming need to take naps the last couple weeks, I am approaching readiness for this project!
Due to my lackadaisical attitude that “Oh, I’ve done lots of projects and they always confirmed my set up really quickly” I still don’t have all the clearances I need to go ahead and launch Wu’s project tomorrow. I’m hoping that approvals will magically take place over night and I will still be able to launch at my scheduled planned time of Noon, Thursday June 27, but if I can’t, then I will keep you posted! For those who supported the last 2 projects, I can send out messages via Kickstarter, and for the rest of you, I’ll post an update here, Twidder, and Fezbook. Sigh…that’ll learn me!
Let’s see what Mr. Wu himself has to say about this!
Mr. Wu IS a pivotal panda in the rise of panda satire!
Be the bear!

psst! want a sneak peek at the preview? Here it is!
The Panda Kindergarten Keychain! Huzzah! Final size approx. 1 3/4 inches wide
That’s a quote from one of my favorite writers of all times, the late Douglas Adams, author of The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and many other books. And alas, I have missed a self imposed deadline. 🙁
I had hoped to be ready to launch the next series of pins and patches today, but one thing an another (I lost 2 weeks due to an unavoidable and unexpected trip) has kept me from this meeting this deadline. I’m trying very hard to get everything up and running for Thursday June 27th instead, so stay tuned! I’m close to ready, with a few more things to do, and get my project approved by the Kickstarter folks.
Read on after today’s ‘toon to get a sneak peek at the designs for the pin and patch designs!
And now…who are YOU calling a snowflake?
I’m not a snowflake. You are a snowflake!
Thanks to all who alerted me to this very important story about an albino panda caught on the panda cam in China, in the Quinling region! (You know it must be true if the Smifsonian reported it!)
And now, a little sneak peek at the next pins!
The Wu self! Final size will be about 1 1/4 inch wide
