Time to spin the Wayback Wheel and see what turns up!

Some weeks I have a time to expound upon, and then I look for archived ‘toons that illuminate that theme. Other weeks I have no idea what I’m thinking of and then I just have to spin the wheel and see what pops up.

One thing you can be sure of, it’s likely that Pinky will be involved!

On my honor, I will try…to eat as many cookies as I possibly can….

Well…no Pinky in that one! let’s try again!

Mei should not be getting all excited like this in her condition!
And what better talk show is there, than Mehitabel Tonite!?
I really had no idea what she was up to.
Make sure Pinky doesn’t try to steal Bubba and Ping’s candy!

Well as Pinky all says, you can never have enough ‘toons about Pinky!


Till next time,

Be the Bear!

It’s Pandaversary Celebration Weekend!!!!

50 years ago, the Nixon Pandas arrived in Washington DC to great fanfare!

I am only making some of this up

Since that momentous occasion, pandas have participated in many events in our Nation’s Capitol!

Whats a protest without pandas?
Hey, save some cuppycakes for me!
Memorial day
Don’t be endangered, be dangerous
Do we HAVE to go?

Yes, pandas have become a part of every day life in Washington DC!

What do you say to another 50 years of panda diplomacy?

Pay no attention to those reports of Ling Ling biting one of her keepers! I’m sure it was just a little panda nip!

A Day Without Pandas…Is Not Worth Waking Up For

Let’s see what pops up from the Way Back machine…

“Wu calls his dance, ‘Ode to a Weaf’ “
inside Bob's Brain
What’s that stuff getting all over my paws? Oh…it’s frosting!

How about one of Mr. Wu’s stories?

Whatever could be in the box the panda kindergarten is delivering to Mr. Wu?
Will the panda kindergarten get it put together before Bai Yun gets home?
“Up in the Air, Junior Pandas…”
Nothing like a snappy graphic to um…solve a problem!
May Day! May Day!
Bet ya didn’t see this coming…or maybe you did.

I hope you enjoyed this story as we celebrate 50 years of pandas at the National Zoo!

Yes, I know that Mr Wu is not an SNZ Panda, but he is related through his mom and Papa Tian Tian, who are half siblings!

A Panda of Mystery: Maybe a new story!

Sometimes I have ideas, and sometimes I don’t necessarily know where they are going. In the way of pantsers* everywhere, I will just start writing and drawing and see where it goes. (*Pantser: a writer who writes with no plan or plot in mind)

Over on #PandaTwitter Six and Sebben are on the loose! Who knows what they will get up to, or where they will turn up. Mama Lun Lun bought them around the world tickets, paid extra for their passports, turned up the music and locked the door. Not necessarily in that order.

Sometimes Twitter #PandaImprov turns into ‘toon story lines. Sometimes we are just having fun!

But meanwhile, Babette de Panda has turned up like a bad penny!

Stay ‘tooned!

Spring has Sprung!

Today is the first day of Spring, the Vernal Equinox, a day of equal day and night (in theory, any way!) It is also the 50th anniversary year of pandas at the Smithsonian National Zoo, in the other Washington!

So, of course, we must celebrate the Nixon pandas!

I am only making some of this up.

Let’s see what other Spring ‘toons might be lurking in the archives…

The secret lives of the wild panda!
On my honor, I will try…to eat as many cookies as I possibly can….

And, as the unionization effort ramps up at Starbucks, I am reminded of my experience in the coffee mines, lo these many years ago!

This was way too much fun. :o)

Solidarity forever, guys!

There are still about 12 felted kitties left! Check out the Felties Revisited page for details!

Spring Back, Fall Forward!

If you didn’t set your clocks back last night, you are already late! That’s right! Most of the country goes on Daylight Saving Time today! I know I posted the following ‘toon. last week, but I love it so much I’m posting it again!

Fabulous Furry Friday KNOWS that this is one of your favorites!

I was informed by some very pedantic grammar person, that it is “daylight saving time” and NOT “daylight savingS time.” Sigh…there is no spell check in the inkwell!

Tomorrow is the favorite holiday of mathematicians everywhere: Pi Day (3/14)

Pandas, of course, think of it as “Pie Day” Because…who wouldn’t?

The Life of PIE….get it? *chortle chortle*

Or was it “The Life of Pooh?”

The irony of Mehitabel criticizing Pooh Bear for his wardrobe, does not escape me.
I’m not sure Mehitabel has anything to talk about.

A reminder: The Felty Cat project is still going strong!

Check the felties revisited page to learn more about the project, and to fill to the form to order your felty kitty. At the moment there are still about 20 felty kitties remaining.

Don’t forget to spring back!

It’s Sunday Funday!

When I don’t have a planned theme for Sunday’s panda ‘toon Palooza, I sometimes randomly spin the date listing wheel and see what comes up. Maybe that will suggest a theme, or maybe I’ll just find some of my all time favorite ‘toons! Next week we return to Daylight Savings time, so that is a good place to start…

Maybe it’s an all Panda Kindergarten day!

The panda kindergarten is so very helpful.
Nothing like a bit of the great outdoors to straighten up the panda kindergarten.
Put your paws together for the panda kindergarten!

It’s International Polar Bear Day!

Who doesn’t love polar bears? (besides seals?)

Felty Polar Bear and her cubbies! Want em? Contact me!

It’s been a week, hasn’t it? Poot’n has invaded Ukraine, but the Ukrainians are fighting back hard and have no f**ks left to give. Europe has stepped up with aid and so has NATO. We are going to have our first female African American SCOTUS Justice, it the GQP can get its head out of its a** long enough to admit she is more qualified than the last 3 they rammed on to the court. Cue the “But maybe she is TOO qualified” chorus to start whining in 3…2…1…

Texas, Floriduh, and Oklahoma, oh and let’s not forget Virginia, are all trying to out do one another for the most regressive and cruel legislation on woman’s reproductive rights, health care for trans children, and education. I can only conclude that they want a beaten down, uneducated populace. No wonder Barker Carlson sings Poot’n’s praises.


Let’s have some pandas! Time to spin the random ‘toon archive generator!

This is one of my earliest ‘toons and I dedicate it to James Fallows!

You Know What Time of Year This is?

Why, it’s The Panda Season of LOOOOOVE!

Even though we no longer have any participants in The Panda Season of Love in the US of A, we are still interested observers (Not like THAT!!!) of the season! Here are some ‘toons from the archives celebrating this season of Love amongst the pandas!

I hope people haven’t had enough of silly love songs!
it’s the panda, the panda season of love!
The Scottish pandas have had a few disappointments…
A bear by any other name, would still smell pretty funky.
A panda by any other name, would smell…well, they would just smell…
“It was dark….there were men in masks….”
Um…pass the beer and poutine, please!

To celebrate the Panda Season of Love, all feltie panda orders (or any other kind of feltie) will come with a complimentary roll of Panda Season of Love Washi tape. Want to see what we have in the way of Felites? Fill in the comment form below and I can send you pictures of available felt creations.

I’m working on a collection I’m almost ready to launch, which are NOT pandas! What could they be? I just need to make a few more and then I will announce them!

Here is a picture of the actual tape! The Panda Season of Love tape is on the bottom. All styles of tape are available for a set of 4 for $18 including US shipping.

Be the Bear!
