More Panda House Fun!

My new book, The Panda Chronicles Book 9: What Could Possibly Go WRONG! is now under review, and I hope that it will be available later this week! This is exciting news, indeed!

But now, let’s stop in to the Panda House and see what’s happening…

Mommee Mei is stonewalling Mikey’s questions about you know who!

You can be sure I’ll let you know the instant the new book is available! Stay ‘tooned! And don’t forget to check out The Wizard of Wu, parts of which have run the last two Sundays. More to come this Sunday next!

till then,

More of our Annual Encore Presentation of The Wizard of Wu!

Let’s just get right to it!

When we left Mr. Wu and Binky, they opened the door on a strange new landscape, far away from Panda Canyon!

Making Fat Bear Week Even Fatter!

It’s Fat Bear Week up in Alaska! Grizzlies gather to galumph through streams, as salmon jump directly into their mouths. Just like in college basketball, there are charts showing which bears are in the running (I’m not sure how the competing teams are decided…different stream? I’ll have to do more research.)

There are rumors that even though they are not on the official match ups, Frank and Mikey are planning on a surprise late entry! Other rumors of banned performance enhancing substances to promote unfair advantages, have been leveled against Frank and Mikey, which could explain why they are not in the official line up.

Also, Mikey has let it be known that he doesn’t like fish.

Mikey: Bears like donuts, okay? I like donuts. Bears like donuts. Did I have too many donuts sometimes? You mean, was I cool? Heck yes I was cool. So MAYBE I had too many donuts once in a while.

Mei Xiang tries to change the subject

This would be a good time to order your own Frank and Mikey!

Is that a donut I see before me?

Order in the usual fashion:

It’s Lesson Time at the Panda House!

But before we get to that…

I must sadly tell you that ONCE AGAIN I was not awarded a MacArthur Foundation Genius Grant for Panda Satire. Announcement day has left me a sad panda (but you get to see my favorite cartoon!)

In 10 Years There Has Not Been One Grant Awarded in Panda Satire!!!!

Why IS there no MacArthur Fellowship for Panda Satire, anyway?

Also, today is National Voter Registration Day. If you are not registered to vote, what are you waiting for? By not using your voice, you allow others to speak for you and you might not like what they’re saying. Please register and please vote. Even in little pesky local elections like school board! You might not think those are important, but we are finding out that they are. Even here on (mostly) true blue South Whidbey, there is an ongoing attempt to replace smart, caring school board members with anti-vaxxing, anti-equality right wing authoritarians.

I’m gonna be voting, I’m going to remind my friends to vote. Don’t let Mittens rule from the rear!

And Here’s Today’s ‘Toon!

Bikkie is still showing how smart he is!

It’s Almost Time for…

We are in the tail end of September (How the heck did THAT happen????) which means that it’s almost October, and you know what that means! It’s almost time for our annual rebroadcast of The Wizard of Wu!!! Once upon a time, a long looooong time ago (when there were only 3 major networks to choose from!!!!) The Wizard of Oz was rebroadcast every year right around Halloween.

This was so long ago, that when I first started watching this movie, we only had a black and white TV, so even when they got to Oz, it was still all in black and white. Eventually we got a color TV and I was so excited to watch the annual encore presentation of The Wizard of Oz, because IT WAS GOING TO BE IN LIVING COLOR!!!! Imagine my surprise, when the first and last part WERE STILL IN BLACK AND WHITE!?!?!?!?!?!?!

WHAT THE ACTUAL F**K!!!!!!?????

I guess only Oz gets to be in color. Any of you who live in Kansas…is it still that way?

No matter…we just need to kill a little time until next Sunday when The Wizard of Wu will come to you in several parts, followed by A Halloween Carol (starring PINKY!!!!)

Let’s see what comes up from the archive wayback machine for today!

Will Bob ever learn NOT to turn his back on the panda kindergarten? No, we didn’t think so, either.
I have extra frosting!
another cartoon inspired by real news!
Thanks again to Henry Nicholls for alerting me to this story

A quick note about Fezbook: as you all know, on Fezbook, I am Bob T Panda, a claim I can not actually substantiate with any actual documentation. Should the powers that be ever find me out, or if I lose my account to some foul hacker, I will not be able to get my account back without revealing my true identity. I do not want to do this, since the powers that be have proved themselves to be soulless cretins who sell our private data to the highest bidder and allow actual trumpsters and fascists to spread misinformation and hateful rhetoric. If I should lose my account, I will not go back. You can always find me here or over on Twidder @pandachronicle

Stay tuned and have some frosting!

Be the Bear,
Bob T Panda

There is definitely something odd going on here

Is anyone going to believe what Frank and Mikey saw?

Frank and Mikey are IN DA HOUSE!!!

(The Panda House, that is!)

Yes, Frank and Mikey are home from their Alaskan adventure, (Mei Xiang: wait a minute…what do you mean by HOME????) Six and Sebben are back in PandaLanta, and Bebe Maurice has returned to France to meet his petite zizzies and turn them into internationally renowned painting models!

Never a dull moment!

You might be thinking: What could they possibly be unpacking?

Silly you! Their pajamas, of course! What! Do you think they sleep au natural???? We may be animals but we’re not SAVAGES!!!!

I just realized that next Sunday is International Talk Like a Pirate Day! So, of course I will be re-running the Mr. Wu the Pirate ‘toons! Prepare to talk like a Pirate!

Till Thursday,
Be the Bear!
