We often get to things later, rather than sooner, but we usually get to them sooner or later! So p[ut your paws together, and give a warm Institute for Contemporary Panda Satire Lunar New Year HUZZAH! for…
The Year of the Ox! ( As presented by the Panda Kindergarten!)
How the heck did THAT happen? I turn my back for one minute and suddenly, February is almost over. I mean, I KNOW it is the shortest month and everything, but is it really supposed to be THIS short????
But since time in Pandyland is somewhat…shall we say…flexible, we will soon have the Panda Kindergarten presentation for this year’s Lunar New Year Celebration (Which was cancelled the last two years because snakes and rats!!!) I can’t wait to see what the little darlings have up their paws, under the inestimable guidance of the leader of the Pandy Kindy, Bob T Panda!
But now, with no further ado….heeeeeeere’s Bikkie!
This happens to me all the time. I’ll be doing something or reading stuff on Twidder or Fezbook, and I’ll get a great idea for Sunday’s encore presentation of ‘toons. Then I get on the computer and I realize I’ve completely forgotten my very good, perfect, incredibly brilliant idea for Sunday’s post.
I am a bear of very little brain…
Oh! I just remembered one thing (the bear of little brain having jogged my memory): There have been new reports and camera sightings of the albino panda that has been seen in China! We did a ‘toon about him/her when they were first seen on camera in 2019.
I’m not a snowflake. You are a snowflake!
Which leads me to thinking about the injustice of wildlife cameras spying on pandas!
The secret lives of the wild panda!
And not only wild pandas are being spied on…
What’s that blinking red light over there?
I has no sekrets!!!!
And then the ‘toon about Snowflake also made me think of…
The irony of Mehitabel criticizing Pooh Bear for his wardrobe, does not escape me.
I’m not sure Mehitabel has anything to talk about.
Fortunately, all is quiet at the panda house! Have a relaxing (Mittens free) Sunday!
Mei and Tian2 contemplate the joys of the not very empty nest. (Grizzly bears take up a lot of room!)
While it doesn’t have anything to do with pandas, as I sit at my computer, getting ready to write this post, an owl (maybe two) is (are?) hooting in the woods behind my house! Life in the 5 Acre Wood is never dull!
Meanwhile, Pinky has hatched yet another plan to cash in on another younger sibling’s adorable self. Will she get away with it? Who knows! The idea for this series came from Twidder friend Boo Boo Panda ( @BooBooPanduh on Twidder) who likes to make videos from the panda cam footage, and put them to music. She always comes up with great music/video combinations and they are so much fun to watch.
She wanted to make a workout video for Bikkie, masterminded and produced by Pinky, and asked if I could do a related ‘toon. The previous two ‘toon postings and today’s ‘toon are the result!. You can watch her video HERE! I hope you enjoy it!
And now…Pinky Presents….
See, Mommee! No tigers!
Hee Hee! Just like a Jane Fonda workout video, am I right??
Yes, we are in the midst of the Lunar New Year Celebration, AND today is Valentine’s Day! Meanwhile, the real life Princess Pinky has had her first cubby and it is a Princess! Princess Pinky Jr. shares (not dat word, mommee!) her birthday with the Real Wu Self, July 29th! Pinky Jr. seems to be in good paws with a foster mommy. Alvin of My Panda Tours gave us some good information about this over on FezBook, in case you follow him there.
In any case, this is not an uncommon state for first time panda moms. From all reports Pinky Jr. is doing well and the picture I saw of her is so cute! Get that cubby a magical wand!
But now, by popular request, (and because I was going to do this anyway) let’s have a round up of previous Lunar New Years with the Panda Kindergarten ‘toons!
The year of the bunny…..
Oh that panda kindergarten!
Huzzah! it’s the year of the Dragon!
Look out!!!! Oh, those triplets!
Huzzah! It’s The year of Pandas on Horsies!
Well, the FIRE part had Mehitabel a little worried, but…
