More of our Annual Encore Presentation of The Wizard of Wu!

Let’s just get right to it!

When we left Mr. Wu and Binky, they opened the door on a strange new landscape, far away from Panda Canyon!

It’s OctoBEAR!!!

Fat Bear Week continues, but even more importantly, It’s OctoBEAR and that means Halloweenie! And as I previously mentioned, that means for the next couple of Sunday’s we will be having our annual special encore presentation of The Wizard of Wu!

So let’s get started, shall we?

The Wizard of Wu Part 1
We’re in for it now, Binky!
Hang on to your hats, kids, it’s gonna be a bumpy ride!
I don’t think we’re in Pandiego any more, Binky….
What could be waiting outside? Where the heck ARE we, Binky?

Toon in next week for the next installment of The Wizard of Wu!

A Reminder for the Holiday Season

USPS has made plans to slow down deliveries…why? Because they can, also Louie De, so if you are planning to order pandas for the holidays, order early, so they can actually get to you on time. After last years debacle (at least one priority mail package mailed on December 7 did not arrive until January 10th-ish.) I would rather not mail any packages after December 1st. Right now I have a fairly relaxed production schedule, so unless it’s a big order, I can still get pandas done in a week or so.

To Bee or Not to Bee

Recently I’ve begun to invite friends of the Panda Chronicles to request specific encore presentations for my regular Sunday offering. This week, by request, I’m highlighting Bee the Bear!

I had to think for a minute about how Bee (the Bear) came into bee-ing! It all came rushing back, when I remembered that when I did my 2nd Kickstarter campaign to publish my first collection of ‘toons in printed form, a friendly bee-keeper here on Whidbey offered some local honey as an extra incentive to contribute to my campaign.

Of course I had to design a label!

Bee, the Bear; my original drawing.

Later I revised her a little bit:

Beeeeeeeee!

and also…

cheerful
Bee-lieve!

When Mr. Wu came along, Bee (the Bear) appeared in many of Mr. Wu’s adventures, including the story when he ran off with the panda kindergarten and joined the circus, The Wizard of Wu, and It’s a Wunderful Life!

It's a Wonderful Life parody
What part of “you don’t exist” didn’t you get? Ha ha! I love that line!

And while we’re on the subject, (what subject was that?) It’s almost birthday month for Mr. Wu, and the Meihem twins, so the Sundays of July will be filled with encore presentations with Mr. Wu and the Meihems! (Pinky Junior shares [NOT DAT WORDS!!!!] her birthday [July 29th] with The Wu Self!) The wizard of Wu always has an encore presentation in October and it’s a Wonderful Life, during the Christmas holiday season. I’ll reprise Mr. Wu’s entire circus adventure during his birthday month!

August, of course, will be full of the House of the Xiang-Tian clan! Definitely something to look forward to!

I hope you enjoyed this visit with Bee (the Bear)!

Be(e) the Bear!

The Wizard of Wu Continues!

Now where were we? Oh yes, Mr. Wu and a panda that looks an awful lot like his next oldest brother Yunior have just met Mr. Toasty, as they make their way to the Bamboo city (or the Cuppycake City, depending on which chapter you’re reading #PerilsOfPantsing)

Yes it’s that time once again when we dust off that old chestnut, that classic satire of The Wizard of Oz, starring…no…NOT Pinky!!!!!!!! But the one, true, dearly beloved Wu Self!!!

(More cheering…you’ll have to do the sound effects yourself.)

Are you ready?
Do you have your popcorn?
Did you use the little bears room?
Well, all right then, let’s begin!

Have a fabulous Furry Friday!

It’s time for another Holiday Classic: The Wizard of Wu!

Every time I reread The Wizard of Wu, I am enchanted all over again! I remember watching The Wizard of Oz every year around Halloween, and I was always terrified by the flying monkeys, by the evilness of the wicked Witch of the West, the whole idea that you could be whisked away by a tornado and wake up in a frightening new world.

So, after our re-broadcast of A Halloween Carol, I thought we should also have an encore presentation of that other holiday classic, The Wizard of Wu, for our Fabulous Furry Friday presentations! (Be on the look out for some cameo appearances for the newest junior pandas on the US panda scene!)

Huzzah!

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

We’re in for it now, Binky!

Hang on to your hats, kids, it’s gonna be a bumpy ride!

I don’t think we’re in Pandiego any more, Binky….

What could be waiting outside? Where the heck ARE we, Binky?

Day 8, 31 Days of Pandas

Huzzah! We are back again for 31 Days of Pandas, and our encore presentation of The Wizard of Wu! Yesterday, the Wicked Cat Witch of the West sent her henchpandas out to capture Wu and his magical bunny slippers! Will they succeed? Let’s find out!

Evilness is one thing, but there must be snacks!

Well,lookee here! isn’t that….?

Uh oh! Am I going to leave you with only two more episodes to go? Well, yes I am. Bwahahahaha! Will the identity of the wizard be revealed? will wu get home safely? will there be cuppycakes for all?

Tune in tomorrow to see if all has ended happily! although, if you already had The Book of Wu, you would know the answer to these questions. Just saying.

Be the Bear,
