It’s Panda Birthday Season!

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?!?!?!?!

This was before we knew that the Meihems and Po were girls!

And then this happened…

Pinky is VERY powerful. Be afraid, be very afraid, Mr Wu.

Ready for panda kindergarten!
I love a good art forgery, don’t you?
There must be cake!

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!

Slated for a September release date!

Pinky Triumphs Again!

Never doubt the Power of the Poof!

Rumor has it that there was a large flash of light over the continent of Australia yesterday, 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.

You say you want a resolution, well, you know, it is hard to change a bear….

Never say “No” to a Pinky!
do the right thing.

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.

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!

#ClapLouder

Till next time,

It’s Sunday Funday!

The Pandemic really isn’t over is it?

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.

It’s nothing that a little cocoa can’t fix!
You can’t get more socially distant than sending everyone to their room!
Is FEMA stealing marshymallows too?
Well, bless her heart!
Here comes Meihem!

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)

Pand-O-Lympics Finale!

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!

Be the bear!

Don’t forget the felty kitty project! Still 19 kitties available for their forebear homes!

Day 25 ~ 31 Days of Pandas

THIS IS IT! THE FINAL INSTALLMENT OF THE 12 DAYS OF CRISPMOSS!!!!

On the twelfth day of Crisp-Moss, My Panda cam Did See….
MX: no, Pinky, you may NOT have a Bamboo-tini!
I can’t hear you….
F-F-F-FI-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-VE Cuppycaaaaaaakes!
whew!
Everybody sing!

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!

Be the bear!

Day 24 ~ 31 Days of Pandas

I had a little inspiration on Twidder the other evening, and thought I’d share it with you hear, especially for you non- angry bird people!

‘Twas the night before Crispmoss
and all through the den,
the pandas were snoring 
again and again

The pandas were sleeping
all snug in their beds
while visions of cuppycakes
danced in their heads

when out in the passage
there came such a clatter
did Redd just show up?
with his antics and chatter?

So Larry arose 
and went out in the hall
He was very brave 
though he is very small.

For Larry, the mouse,
He had a large task
he advises the panda kids
If they would ask!

Of course there was Pinky
who knew everything,
all that she asked, what
would Santa bring?

“Clap louder! Clap louder”
she said in a huff!
“Whatever he brings,
well, it won’t be enough!”

“I made up my list-
there’s volume 1 here”
Larry just stared,
Bubba wiggled his ears.

“yoo can’t boss around Santa”
her brother said sweetly.
“hah!” said the princess
“there’s no one to keep me!”

Then Ping in his dog suit
and Mikey and Frank
ran into a wall
in a little toy tank.

“you’re going to wake mommee!”
Said Pinky, aghast.
“now clean up dis mess,
and do it real fast!”

The bears all looked sheepish,
this was such a fuss.
Then Mikey and Frank said,
“That wasn’t us.”

“What is that racket?”
Mommee said with a yell,
“You all will be grounded
if no one will tell”

“Who wrecked the tank
right into the wall?”
The small pandas scattered
and ran down the hall

“It sure wasn’t us!”
As they ran out of sight
Merry Crispmoss to all
and to all nighty night!

Merry Crispmoss!

Day 23 ~ 31 Days of Pandas

The 12 (GASP) Days of Crispmoss continues some more!

Oh no! Not again!
F-F-F-FI-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-VE Cuppycaaaaaaakes!
whew!
No WONDER I didn’t get any presents!
F-F-F-FI-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-VE Cuppycaaaaaaakes!
whew!

Are you still singing?

Be the Bear!

Day 22 ~ 31 Days of Pandas

Yes! It’s Day FIVE of everyone’s favorite song!

The 12 Days of Crispmoss!

FIIIIIVE cuppycakes!
whew!
HOW many more days are there?
whew!

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.

Till then…
Be the Bear!

Day 21 ~ 31 Days of Pandas

More from the 12 Days of Crispmoss!
