Fasten your seat belts! There may be turbulence!

I hope Bubba doesn’t decide to invest in Pinky’s new airline endeavor.

Protect the Banky Pig!!!!

So…where did you leave Banky Pig?

Be da bear!

And speaking of Bridgegate…

Oh! Were we? There was recent news about the scandal with the folks over in New Jersey (The Sopranos State!) and how maybe somebody closed a bunch of lanes of the Fort Lee Bridge back in 2013. They basically (successfully, although not necessarily truthfully) pinned the deed on one of the governor’s trusted staffers (a woman, surprise, surprise) and of course, she is going down for the deed, although she’s still fighting. I say good for her.

The original news story inspired this series of ‘toons, starring young Pinky and the Meihems! Enjoy!

Princess Pinky Bao Bao…what have you done now?

“Hello, Bai Yun? this is Lun Lun…about that detective you suggested…”

…of course Boo-mints are pretty good too.

Will the twins get a merit badge for their road trip? will Lun Lun fess up to where the girls are? will Inspector Panda get a clue, or at least more twitter followers. Stay tuned!

Oh, Pinky…what have you done?

Howdy, Mr Kitty, kindly tell us where a tired old cowpoke can get a boo beer and a cuppycake.

The end!

Panda on!

When you are looking for a good panda tourism option…

..better try Pand-air! The airline for all your panda tourism needs!

Pinky ALWAYS has a plan!

Pand-Air is the only airline you’ll ebber need!

Panda on!

Sunday Funday(?????)

With all the news in the news, it’s hard to feel like having fun, but that is what we must do if we are to survive the current madness of “King” Donald. Apparently, He just found out that 4th of July is a holiday, and he “came up with” a great idea for the day.

I hope he doesn’t make attendance mandatory.

Do we HAVE to go?

Meanwhile, out in California…

Yun Zi leaves for China

There’s no place like home…

Leaving the nest is never easy.

mr wu speaks out.

Is this a personality or what?

annoyed moviegoer allegedly shoots two for texting in movietheater

Don’t try this at home….

Don’t you just wish Fezbook would quit changing things?

Don’t Touch My Stuff! (this means you, Gail.)

Meanwhile, in Kickstarter land, I’ve ordered pins and patches and will get the backer surveys out next week! Huzzah! I bet Pinky will be so happy when Bubba and Ping arrive!

Stay safe and make sure you don’t have a humor deficit!

Pinky is at it again…

Uh oh. I knew when I saw her new tiara (Pinky 2020) that it was a sign of trouble. Big trouble. Mommee Mei might have hoped that Pinky had  learned something from her experience 4 years ago, and she did, they were just not the things Mommee Mei wanted her to learn.

I’m almost afraid to look…

Ping!

Be the Bear!

Missing Wu…

Mr. Wu was the first baby panda I watched from birth. The following year I watched as the Meihems, and then Pinky were born, but Wu will always be the cubby of my heart. I hope that I get to visit him in China, but sometimes it is hard to track specific pandas. You think they are going to be one place, and then you go, and they have been moved, sometimes the day before.

I know I’ll recover. There are more panda cubbies to watch and love, but they won’t be the Wu Self.

where happy pandas eat bamboo, oh why, oh why, can’t…Wu?

Please refer any questions to Mr Wu’s legal team.

Are you now, or have you ever been a panda?

Don’t believe EVERYTHING the panda kindergarten says!

Meanwhile, we wrapped up our successful Bubba and Ping Pin project over on Kickstarter last week! They just celebrated their 10th anniversary last week as well! Follow the link to see some of the amazing projects the’ve done over the years. I’m proud of all the projects I’ve done there, since my first one in 2012. While they have all been modest projects, relatively speaking, they have been significant to me, in the support I received and what I was able to do with it.

Thanks to all of you who supported me, I was able to:
* Travel to Italy for an egg tempera workshop in 2012
* Publish the very first collection of the Panda Chronicle ‘toons in 2012
* Publish Pandamorphosis in 2014
* Travel to China to see pandas (including actual Pinky) and create a series of artworks on my return in 2017
* Create the first of the Pin series (Starring Pinky!!!!!) in 2019
* Create the second Pin project with Bubba and Ping Ping;  in 2019

Thank you all for being the bears!

One more day to go!!!!!

A big thanks to all of the fans and friends of Bubba (and Ping Ping!!!!) who have signed up to and contributed to the latest Pin Project! We are truly in the home stretch now, with the project closing down tomorrow at Noon PDT! I’m very excited about the pin and patch designs and can hardly wait to see them and hold them in my paws!

Pandas are standing by to fulfill your every wish!

I thought mommee hid Pinky’s magical wand!

Head on over to Kickstarter now, and get your Bubba (and Ping Ping!!!) pin today!

Be the Bear!

Huzzah Huzzah! Bubba is on the move!

Allow me to pontificate a little schmoopilly here…

While there is a lot of work and planning in putting together a crowd funding campaign, there is also a LOT of fun involved too. I love designing little things from my drawings, but what I love most is interacting with you all!

When I see names that I know from Fezbook and Twidder, and even from real life, I get a little thrill. It’s almost like we are having a conversation: Hey! I like what you’re doing here! I wanna make sure you can keep doing it!…Chatting back and forth in the messages makes me feel a little less isolated in my studio. And to all the new people, whose names I don’t recognize, thank you for climbing aboard the panda bus!

Bubba’s pin! Funded in just over 3 hours!

So very Bubba, right?

And since we funded so quickly, I thought we should up the ante with a little stretch goal…visit us at Kickstarter today and climb aboard!

It’s not a party if you didn’t bring cuppycakes!

Because without Ping Ping, Bubba would only have his big zizzy Pinky to play with!

By the way, there were still a few Pinky pins available as of Tuesday afternoon!

Meanwhile, things are heating up in the other Washington…

Devin’s Cow goes to Washington

Panda on!

Stop the #HumorDeficit !!!!!

Here at the Institute for Contemporary Panda Satire, we have become aware of the growing humor deficit in this country and around the globe. Dis! Will! Not! Stand!!! If you are in any doubt that we need to laugh, almost as much as we need food, clean water, and shelter, look no further than last week’s TwitterQuake with Devin Nunes’ Cow. After declaring that he would sue both Twitter itself and 2 parody accounts for making fun of him (wah wah wah) Devin Nunes’ was chagrined to learn that his cow’s Twitter account surged from just over 1000 followers to over 629,000 in less than a week, thanks to the attention his lawsuit brought to it.

His cow’s following is more than 200,000 more than Devin’s and still growing. If nothing else, the number of very funny (if silly) puns being tweeted in support of said cow shows that people have all this pent up humor looking for a place to release it. But of course, those of you who follow The Panda Chronicles are already well aware of the need for humor, particularly in the dark times we are now living in, and the darker times ahead. Still, I do love a good bovine bon mot!

Speaking of the need for humor, here are some pandas!

If you think that maybe elephants never forget, they have nothing on pandas.

Is this any way to treat our Nation’s most adorable icon?

The forces of Meihem are only barely in check.

Of course, the #PandaSeasonofLove does have a few twists and turns…

Prevaricating pandas perceived in pregnancy pastry ploy

“They’ll never catch me!”

“Do you know who I am????” Yeah, we do.

Pinky needs stuff and she needs it now!

Real Panda Update: Panda fans in DC (and indeed, around the world) are happy to note that Mommee Mei appears to be ready for the #PandaSeasonofLove! Lets hope there is a cubby (or two) in her future! also, it appears to be #ThePandaSeasonofLove in Calgary too!

BTW: if you are looking for a great read, I can highly recommend Samira Ahmed’s latest book Interment. It’s a gripping story that addresses the current and potential political reality so many people are facing right now. With echoes of Anne Frank’s Diary, 1984, and The Handmaid’s Tale, this book is not a comedy. It is, however, an excellent read and you won’t be able to put it down. I know that lovers of pandas tend toward the compassionate side of the scale, and this book will add to that, I think. Tell me what you think!

“If the people hate me, it means they want me to run for president!”

Okay, I may be paraphrasing just the tiniest bit, but in several articles I read recently, Howard Schultz seems to think that the intensely negative response that his announcement of a possible presidential run means…are you ready? It means that “They Like Me! They really Like Me!!!

Um…no. That is not what it means. It means we think you are a deluded tool.

The people have spoken!

Meanwhile, I just got notice that I should have Pinky’s very own pins in my hot little hands by the end of this week. I apologize to those who hoped to have them in time for this weekend’s Pandamonium Convention in Memphis, but I probably won’t receive them till the end of the week. I will be getting them in the mail by the beginning of next week.

Here’s the photo the folks at Pin Game Strong sent me for a sneak peek:

Pinky’s official pin on Pinky’s official card!

If you missed the opportunity to get one of these pins while my kickstarter project was live, never fear! I ordered extra and after I’ve sent them off to all those folks, I’ll let you know how you can get your own Pinky Pin! Stay tuned for the next pin project, coming soon!

Be the Bear!
Bob T Panda

Stay tuned for the return of Frank and Mikey, later this week!
