Oh me oh my! We just got the news that there will not be any baby pandas in DC this year! We send our love to Mommee Mei and family, and hope that they (and we!) can get over the disappointment!
Till we have news of the potential pitter patter of little paws in Calgary, we will have to be content for news and pictures of Hao Hao’s twins in Belgium at Pairi Daiza, and Meng Meng’s in Berlin. Not to mention an active baby panda season in China!
Meanwhile, we have mined the archives for some ‘toons about baby pandas! Enjoy!
…baby pandas! You’re getting baby pandas!!!!
“Howdy do! I’m Mr. Wu! Who are you?”
“Wu calls his dance, ‘Ode to a Weaf’ “
And just how did the panda kindergarten get her address?
Such a little darling! How could her big brother resist spoiling her?
Pinky tests her powers….
Huzzah! a guest appearance by little Po!
Bubba’s first feature role!
He’s small for now, but Bubba Bei Bei is shaping up to be a whole lot of panda!
Meanwhile, Beware the Ides of September! And coming soon! Our annual rebroadcasts of The Wizard of Wu, and A Halloween Carol! How’s that for an October Surprise! Bwahaha!
Pinky has enlisted Six and Sebben as her campaign staff, but there is still something of a learning curve. (Okay, maybe it’s more of a learning precipice, but whatebber!) Let’s check in as Pinky works with her new minions to achieve World Domination™!
“If there is dirt, we’ll find it!” Motto of Six and Sebben Political consultants INC.
The fogs of August are almost upon us, and while Congress goes on a six week vacation, (seriously?) the rest of us wish that we could do the same. But there is no escaping the relentless wave that is going to come upon us, and of course, by that, I mean…
Pinky’s cubpaign for President! Um…what did you think I meant?
I don’t think this crew of minions is going to be quite as devoted as her last ones.
Wasn’t it nice of Six and Sebben to come up with this brilliant cubpaign slogan? Those who signed on to Mr. Wu’s Kickstarter campaign will be getting one of these, but I’m guessing there will be a few extra. Stay tuned to learn how you can get one for your very own!
Pinky has new minions, but can she get them to stop fighting with one another and concentrate on the serious business of getting Pinky elected president next year? It’s gonna be a long cubpaign!
Pinky calls the meeting of her cubpaign staff to order…
Pinky and her new minions get down to serious business
Meanwhile the ordering process for the pins is now complete, and I’m hoping they will be in my hot liddle paws by the end of August. I’m making my lists and checking them twice…no make that 3 times. Stay tuned for more news of Pandas coming your way!
I got so excited checking in on the Mr. Wu: Put a Panda on It pin project yesterday, that I completely forgot to set up today’s post, which I usually set up to go out around 6 AM PDT. I hope I can be excused, just this once. We reached our funding goal, so the Mr. Wu pin and patch, as well as the panda kindergarten key chain will be a reality in the not too distant future!
Now, we just have to get a little farther in our funding goal to make Pinky’s 2020 bumperstickers a reality! You don’t want to disappoint Pinky do you?
But now, let’s have TODAY’S pandas, in an episode we call: Pinky gets new minions!
Pinky’s previous minions are all grown up now, and know better than to listen to her, but…
PS: if you’d like to support another panda artist’s work, there’s still time to support Nolan Lee’s book publication, The Panda is Still Fat, over on Indegogo! (Ironically, Nolan is a cute young, skinny guy who might be as obsessed with pandas as I am! )
Did I scare you? I didn’t mean it was the end of The Panda Chronicles or anything like that. I meant that it is the end of boo shoot season, the favorite season of pandas everywhere. I read that Zoo Atlanta had announced the end of the season, when the wonderful fresh bamboo shoots were no longer available.
I imagined myself to be a fly on the wall of Six and Sebben’s hammock room…
Oh my! I have survived power outages, the beginnings of the goobermint shutdown, and the destruction of the rule of law. If you haven’t watched SNL’s “It’s a Wonderful Trump” do it now! It’s almost as good as “It’s a WUnderful Life” (It doesn’t have pandas, but hey! not everyone can have pandas.)
I am so happy that all of you are here, following along with The Panda Chronicles! It is my privilege to share these ‘toons with you every week, and plan to continue until they drag me away. Hopefully, it won’t come to that, but I can’t imagine that I’ll “tone it down.”
Anyway…let’s get on with the final episode of…
Pinky in Wonderland!!!!!!
Mebbee Bubba isn’t going to let Pinky push him around anymore. Yeah. Right.
