Get Out Your Handkerchiefs

Do I need to supply trigger warnings? I don’t know…it does have a happy ending, if I’m not revealing too much!

The AQI (Air Quality Index) is at 163 as I write this. Portland OR’s AQI has been bouncing between 300+ to well over 500. 😳 This is not good. Haven’t they (we) suffered enough? And now our smokey air has spread all the way yo the east coast!

Good thing Mei is staying in with little Sweet Pea XT4.

Mommee Mei always knows the right thing to do and say!

Be the Bear!

As the Smoke Clears (or doesn’t, as the case may be)

Wow, the smoke is still with us all up and down the west coast. Could this have anything to do with a sulfurous being visiting the left coast? I can’t help but picture “president” Swamp gaily skipping down through a forest, splashing gasoline in one hand, and tossing lit matches from the other.

I sure hope we survive till we get to vote.

Vote for Pinky! Vote Early! Vote Often!

Just so you know, I really appreciate your comments about how much my ‘toons help you get through these unimaginable times. Knowing that I am helping you helps ME. Every day brings a new assault. Not all of it is caused by “president”Swamp, but he shows no interest in helping anyone other than himself.

It’ a lot of pressure for a tiny baby panda. If this little ball of fluff knew that we are hanging on it’s every squeak and burp, I’m not sure what it would do. I am starting on a new story, which I hope to have the first episodes by the first week of October! Stay tuned for this, along with my regular Holiday Encore Presentations for Sundays, including A Halloween Carol, and everyone’s favorite, The Wizard of Wu!

Keep the faith, and like Bubba says, check your voter registration and make sure to vote early!

A One Week Bearday Present For XT4

XT4 had their first one week Bearday on Friday, and is growing by leaps and bounds!  Mommee Mei has not left the baby long enough for the nannies to swoop in and do a quick well cubby check, and take a little (very little) cheek swab so they can do a DNA test and we can find out what sort of royalty we are dealing with.

In honor of this auspicious occasion, we have not ONE but TWO brand new ‘toons. There is a lot of scary stuff happening out there. We need to take a deep breath, remember that Mittens is a scared, cornered animal, and we need to plan to be brave and vote him out. We need to talk whoever needs, off the ledge. Remind them we are not (yet) powerless, and to VOTE. (Preferably for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.) There are no “safe” states this year, where we can make a protest vote or worse, stay home. besides, there are state and local races and they are important too. It doesn’t take much time or effort to look them up on the inter webs. see what they say, and better yet, see who supports them and what THEY have to say.

But somewhere at the beginning of this long diatribe, I promised you BOTH a new ‘toon…the first ‘toon about our newest cubby, along with the conclusion of Bubba’s story of stocking up on “essentials”.

So here we go!!!!!!!!

A new cubby! The possibilities are endless!

And Bubba learns what goes around, comes around!

Just how much toilet paper does an ELEPHANT use????

Panda on!

CubbieTBD is One Week Old!

Yes, we have passed the first week of our new cubbies life. We are relieved, but not complacent! No. A new panda cub is a fragile thing, but so far all appears to be going well. XT4 is getting round, loud, and well loved by Mommee Mei.

I am going to hold on to this good news as hard as I can. I managed not to watch or listen to the RNC #FascistFest, but it was almost impossible not to hear some of the clips or analysis around the inter webs. If people vote early, and are not prevented from voting, we can wrest our country back from the grasping claws of tyranny. We must vote, we must remind our friends to vote, we must correct the vision that the forces of evil want to convince us is real.

And if we are inspired to use bad language, who can blame us?

(This toon appears by popular request:)

Well *bleep* and take your *bleep* and stick it *bleep*!!!!

September might be just around the corner, but it’s still August today, and that means it’s still Pinky’s (Bubba: an’ bubba’s!) Birthday Season!

March

Whats a protest without pandas?

inauguration

Hey, save some cuppycakes for me!

Taxes

Uh oh…it’s the Pinky Revenue Service!

summer

What could be in a letter to Pinky?

summer vacation

Mei is certainly ready for summer vacation, but maybe Bubba needs some summer duds!

Banky Pig

Unhand my Banky Pig!

Pandward bound

What a wonderful surprise! Um…NOT!!!!

pandas return

But some pandas go both ways!

The arrival of Ping!

panda house

Be careful Ping Ping! The Panda House might not be…um…completely safe.

Ha ha! Oh that Pinky!

defense

“It was just a suggestion”

all pandas eve

Okay. That was just WAY too scary.

scary

Ha ha! That Pinky is so clever!

all pandas eve

Will Pinky EVER quit tormenting her brother?

trouble…trouble…trouble…It starts with “T” and that rhymes with “P” and that stands for Pinky!

new year

I couldn’t resist.

I guess Pinky and the GOP have something in common, as much as it pains me to say…

resolutions

Pinky: “rules are for other pandas.”

I hope you enjoyed this trip down memory lane!  Buckle up panda fans. The next two months are going to be a bumpy ride! If you need the voting information for your state, you can find all you need HERE! You can also go directly to your state’s voter information to check your registration!

Panda On!

A Panda Scout is always prepared!

What a week! I have successfully avoided watching any of the Mittens Reign of Terror All Lies All the Time Fascist Fest. Huzzah! The snippets I have seen were so horrifying I could not bear to watch another second.

FORTUNATELY, there is an excellent alternative! At the risk of overloading the Panda Cam viewership even further, the SNZ Panda Cam (All baby panda! All the time!!!) is the best antidote to whatever is troubling you. I realize that watching the panda cam is not going to fix all the problems we have right now, but it just might give you the strength to go back out and do what needs to be done. Also, today is Papa Bear’s birthday, and they are giving him a party!

Mei has given us several excellent views of the bebe panda (who already has their own Twidder account) now that XT4 is FIVE whole days old and growing round as we speak!

But now, let’s get back to our story about Bubba, who just wants to be…um…prepared!

Pinky: who is in trouble? NOT pinky!!!

Panda on!

While we wait…

While we wait for me to do a new ‘toon celebrating the birth of our latest cubby, heart of our hearts, the miracle panda, born in the midst of a pandemic and in the perils we face as a nation, an event that signifies hope.

In one of her fabulous stories (in which all the panda cubbies are much better behaved and respectful to their elders than the cubbies in these pages) Aunty Lucilla points out that our newest cub shares his/her birthday with Hua Mei, born in San Diego to Bai Yun and Shi Shi. Hua Mei was the first surviving cub born in the US and has become quite the hero mom herself. But this newest miracle cub, will be the last born to the current group of pandas who reside in the US. There were questions as to whether Mei Xiang was too old to have another cub. (Mei Xiang: I knew I could do it. Have a little faith)

It is the end of an era, although I hope not the end of having panda families in the US. They bring so much joy to us all. Because this is my world, and I get to make the rules of this world, I get to keep Pinky, Bubba, the Meihems and Mr. Wu all here to inhabit my stories.

Welcome to the world, little XT-4 (aka Four, aka Qi Ji) Start your engines! 

And now, back to the Panda-demic…

Mommee Mei has an eagle eye!

Panda On!

I promise this week I’ll get the new felties photographed and posted!

Today is Pinky’s Birthday…oh, and some other stuff happened too

What week we had! We could almost (almost) ignore the rantings of HWMNBN while we basked in the good feeling glow of the Democratic National Convention. And if that was not enough…

We…have…a…new…baby PANDA!!!!!

Pinky: ahem

Yes, Pinky, we KNOW today is your birthday.

While we wait until I have a chance to create the introductory ‘toon to welcome our new arrival, we do have one or two (ahem!) more ‘toons to celebrate the birthdays of Pinky and Bubba. Mei Xiang, panda mom extraordinaire, had her fourth surviving cub* on Friday, August 21st at 6:35 PM.  Do you think she planned so that these 3 siblings would have their birthdays on three consecutive days?

Happy Birthday Pinky and Bubba! Happy Birth day XT4!!!!

The Spirit of Halloweens yet to come is not a spirit to be messed with, right?

What the well dressed panda cub is wearing this season!

How IS this different from Pinky’s normal bossiness?

Bubba is having so much fun with his new friends!

Hey! Where did Bubba and Mr. Bun go?

Pinky is just so sensitive….

Oh, Mr. Bun! Where have you been?

Did Unka Justin write this letter?

What goes around, comes around…

Pinky, do you really think that Bubba will fall for this?

Mommee Mei puts her foot down.

Oh those red pandas! They are such characters!

The following group of ‘toons were written more than one and a half years ago. They don’t seem quite so far fetched NOW, do they?

Who would ever imagine Pinky would do something to offend someone? #ClapLouder

Mebbee Bubba and Ping Ping can help…

Mittens can’t really do that, can he?

Mittens did WHAT??????!!!!????

Dis. Will Not. STAND!!!!!

I don’t want to end on this somewhat depressing note…off to look for one more ‘toon about Pinky and Bubba!

Watch out, Bubba! Pinky is on the loose!

Panda On!
Bob T Panda

  • Mei Xiang had a cub that only survived a few hours in 2012, a still born twin to Pinky (Pinky: it was NOT my fault!) and a twin to Bubba who lived 4 days.

We just don’t know, dude!

As I write this, on Wednesday night, Mei is still pacing and lounging in her den, occasionally munching on some bamboo, but not yet popping out a cubby (or two). Sigh…She will do what she is going to do in her own sweet time, so no point in obsessing and…checking the panda cam…just…one…more …time.

But meanwhile, it’s Thursday!Gateway to the weekend and you know what THAT means!!!

It’s Pinky and Bubba’s birthday weekend!!!!

You say it’s your birthday!!!

By the time this posts, Mei Xiang may have had her cubby. Or not.
Sigh…Stay tuned!

Panda on!

The Great Race Grand Finale!!!

The  week of torturing you till the winner of the race was revealed is finally OVER! (Not to mention for those of you who were wondering what Six poured onto the track!)

HUZZAH!

There is news from the DC Panda House, but I’ll save it till after today’s ‘toon. If I make you wait any longer, you’ll show up at my house with burning pitchforks!

As they race toward the finish line…

That’s one heck of a lot of ear wax!!!

Hee hee! Ear wax! I bet no one thought of that!!!!

Now, on to the panda den!

So far so good. It’s possible that by the time this publishes, there will be a new baby panda in the cubby den. The latest report from the folks with their eyes on the ultrasound sounds very hopeful. Pseudo thumbs crossed!

Be the Bear!

This series was in honor of Jayelle. Gone, but never forgotten. 

Bears on the Run, Bears on the Run!

Here we are, back again for the second episode of our panda tribute to our departed friend! I think that Six is gonna be in a lot of trouble when this is all over!

And we’re off to the races!!!!

What WAS that stuff Six dumped in front of Sebben’s car?

Be the Bear!
