Fabulous Furry Friday

Today, Fabulous Furry Friday looks at one of our favorite subjects, Panda Cams!!!! Where would we be without panda cams? (Yes, I know, I know… I’d be getting a lot more work done, but you know, watching panda videos is very relaxing, or so I’ve heard somewhere)

Back in the early days, the panda cams were only in black and white, in fixed positions, and often were only available a few hours a day. Now, they are mostly in color, high definition, viewable 24 hours a day, and camera operators follow the pandas around, at least during the pandas wakeful times. (Don’t say it. They do NOT sleep all the time) So put your paws together and give a big huzzah to the panda cam operators, who are mostly unpaid volunteers who are dedicated to giving pandaholics such as myself our daily fix of pandaliscious goodness.

Some of the new high definition panda cams are sponsored by places like Animal Planet (Zoo Atlanta Panda cam) or the Ford Motor Company (National Zoo). For this, we pandaholics thank you!

In the early days of panda cams....

And then there are those dedicated folks who record hours and hours of panda cam footage, and then edit it, so we can watch 20 minutes of pandas playing instead of 14 hours of pandas sleeping. One of my favorite panda video creators, is my Facebook friend who has a YouTube channel called Doxiemom19 who I would credit with supplying me with the best bits of panda life, so that I can turn it into panda satire and illustrations and not have to be constantly watching the panda cams raw footage, and instead, bring you my take on pandas.

What pandas get up to when they are in front of a camera…

Fabulous Furry Friday celebrates the return of the NZ Panda cam!

Woo hoo! Okay, there a few other elements to the government shutdown that were really bad for the national and world economies, but shutting down the National Zoo panda cam was the final straw.  Princess Pinky must be able to address her people, people!

So, in celebration of full access to all pandas everywhere, we bring you several of our all time favorite panda ‘toons for your quick while the boss is out of the office Friday entertainment.

Well, that’s it for this week! Be sure to tune in next week when Princess Pinky returns and we continue with Mr. Wu’s adventure!  And remember, buying my books supports the Institute for Contemporary Panda Satire, which draws and publishes these cartoons for everyone’s enjoyment of this blog! (kinda like National Panda Radio, you know?)

Have a great weekend! Be the Bear.
