It’s panda birthday season for all pandas, but especially for the US born pandas!
And to start out the season, Happy 9th Birthday to the Meihems!!!
Born on July 15th of 2013, more than a month before Pinky, and don’t think they ever let her forget it! Here are some of my favorite ‘toons featuring Bert and Ernie (and probably Pinky, just because!) Can you believe the Meihems and Pinky are about to turn 9?!?!?!?!
And then this happened…
Happy Birthday, Meihems! And a reminder, the book about the real life Meihems written by Beth Bacon and illustrated by yours truly is available for pre-order through Amazon and maybe even your local book store! (Not sure about distribution yet). Order your copy of The Panda Cub Swap today!
Rumor has it that there was a large flash of light over the continent of Australiayesterday, as people headed to the polls to vote in their elections. We can neither conform, nor deny that Pinky and PPJ had anything to do with the outcome. After all, magical wands are prohibited within 50 feet of a polling station.
What have we got to lose? Everything. That’s what. It’s not too early to check your voter registration (primaries are happening, y’all!) and make a plan to vote. Remind your friends to vote too.
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!
Well…no Pinky in that one! let’s try again!
Well as Pinky all says, you can never have enough ‘toons about Pinky!
Yesterday one of my pandemic ‘toons popped up in someone’s time line, so I thought I would revisit the pandas experience of the Panda-demic.
There is always excitement in store when Six and Sebben show up. Mei must have been desperate to suggest this. I bet she won’t make that mistake again!
I just sent a check for $500 off to the Whatcom Humane Society, thanks to everyone who ordered a felty support kitty! There are still 6 more available, so check out the Felties Revisited page for information on ordering!
Till Tuesday (when I WILL have a new ‘toon) Be the Bear! Bob T Panda
The actual Olympics may have ended weeks ago, but time has no meaning here! Here with the final event, are our favorite pairs of twins, The Meihems and their…um…”differently behaved” younger zizzies, Six and Sebben!
Let the games begin!
We will now bid the Panda-O-Lympics a fond fare the well, for another 2 years. Who will the torch bears be this time? Perhaps Fleur and Snowy? Stay ‘tooned in to find out!
THIS IS IT! THE FINAL INSTALLMENT OF THE 12 DAYS OF CRISPMOSS!!!!
Well, here we are, heading into the final days of the year. We have passed the solstice and the sunlight will be creeping back, a few seconds longer each day. It has been my privilege and joy to share these ‘toons with you. I kind of hoped we would be out of the pandemic days (not to mention the political nightmare we still can’t wake from) but here we are.
I hope these panda ‘toons have helped you get through whatever form your year has taken, and I plan to continue writing and drawing these ‘toons and sharing them with you.
Stay strong, stay safe, be kind, and don’t take any crap from the forces of darkness!
I hope you are able to safely gather with the people (and bears) you care about the most this holiday season, whatever you do or don’t celebrate! Save me some pie!
I would like to point out that I am singing along as I post this. If I can do it, you can too. It will (probably) make you feel better!
You’ve probably noticed that I am covering 2 days of Crispmoss each day, which will go up until Christmas Day. After that, we will return to The Bears of the Baskervilles, running the entire story from the beginning during the week between Christmas and New Years! Huzzah! And yes, I finally came upon with an ending.
