It’s October and that Means…

…It’s time for our annual rebroadcast of ….The Wizard of Wu!!!!! (Sounds of cheering and huzzahing and pass the cuppycakes!) 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!

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?

Don’t I know you from somewhere?


Mehitabel would like to register her protest about given the least sympathetic role in this adventure.

We would like to note the early appearances (in supporting roles) of Pinky and the Meihems.

Xiao Liwu has to journey to see the wizard

Okay, now it’s getting exciting! Scary parts dead ahead!

Stay tuned next Friday for more of…The Wizard of Wu!

Be the Bear!

It’s Fabulous Furry Friday, I think…

It’s Friday, the empire is crumbling before our very eyes, and I just had cake, although it didn’t have frosting, so I guess we can say that it’s all coming out pretty much even, right?


Oh heck! let’s look at some vintage pandas!

mr wu speaks out.

Is this a personality or what?

Yun Zi leaves for China

There’s no place like home…

Yun Zi leaves his San Diego Home for China

Leaving the nest is never easy.

No nonsense to be found here!

I smell frosting!

I have extra frosting!

Well, that’s all I got for you today. The news from the home of our nation’s first panda family is all kinds of crazy. You can find me…well…hopefully they can’t find me…hanging out with pandas

Be the bear, every one!

Today is Mr. Wu’s Actual Birthday, but…

…it’s also time for the third installment of Bebe Maurice and how he came to be a great arteest!

How many times have I told you…

What grace! What form! Bebe Maurice is a painter to be reckoned with!

And because today is Mr. Wu’s birthday….

birthday week

It’s so hard to be cool when you still live with your mom.

Viva les Pandas!

And Continuing with the Celebration of Wu…

This weekend it is Mr. Wu’s 6th birthday! Because everyone’s first baby panda, the one you watch from the moment they were born, the one you saw in person when he was only 8 months old (even if he slept through most of my visit), that baby panda will always be special. He was the only panda born in the US in 2012 and so, he did not have to share the stage with any US panda cubs for almost an entire year, with the arrival of the Meihems!

Who can forget Mr. Wu’s declaration: Dis. Will. Not. STAND!!!!

Mr Wu speaks out!

Wu had so many wonderful adventures…

Will the panda kindergarten get it put together before Bai Yun gets home?

And then there was the time Mr. Wu ran away with the panda kindergarten to join the circus…

Fanmail from some Flounder?

“Are we there, yet?”

Who can forget, “It’s a WUnderful Life”?

It's a Wonderful Life parody

Repeat after me, “It’s a story” ‘kay?

…or The Wizard of Wu?

Wizard of Oz spoof

But we’ve come such a long way already….Bwahahaha!

What are you waiting for? Order Book 4 of The Panda Chronicles! The Book of Wu!  And while you’re at it, check out my Pandreon page!

Fabulous Furry Friday…um I mean FriBEI!!!!

We are headed in to the high season of the panda birthday season, and it is never too early to start celebrating the July 29th birthday of the one, the only, the most adorable panda EBBER, the real Wu Self! He was my first baby panda, and so he’ll always be most special to me. Pinky may rant and rage about this, but what can I say? My heart will always belong to Wu!

Let’s get started! WuWuWuWu WU-HOOOOOOO!

“Howdy do! I’m Mr. Wu! Who are you?”

“Wu calls his dance, ‘Ode to a Weaf’ “

Thank you all for coming! Buy my book here!

Yo ho ho and a bottle of BooBeer!

“You are right and Wu is wrong…I’ll never do it again, mommy.”

You can read all about ALL of Mr. Wu’s adventures in his very own (almost Pinky free) book, The Panda Chronicles Book 4: The Book of Wu, available at a computer terminal near you!

And be sure to check out my new Pandreon Page, for those of you who would like to do more to support panda satire! It comes with a super secret page just for panda satire supporters!

Keep supporting panda satire, calling your Congressional representatives, and fighting fascism and injustice! It’s a tough job, but somebody’s gotta do it.

Fabulous Furry Friday presents…

Don’t ask me how I know this:

One other piece of advice for those visiting the PanDiego Zoo (Home of the real Wu Self!) and that is this: Do NOT, under any circumstances, ride of the Skyfari cable cars when it’s raining. Even a seemingly innocent misty rain becomes a driving gale while you are suspended 60 feet above the ground, moving horizontally at a fairly spiffy pace, high above the zoo. Just sayin’.

I mean I would say so if I, or anyone I actually know, had direct experience of this phenomenon. 

Meanwhile, on with today’s round up of ‘toons! And what better way to start than with Wu’s birthday ‘toon from last July!

birthday week

It’s so hard to be cool when you still live with your mom.

Memorial day

In case you have forgotten than tRump has rescinded the ban on the import of dead elephant trophies…

Twinkies 2.0

Twinkies 2.0 put on a show!


Mittens is STILL telling anyone who will listen that his inauguration had the highest attendance in the history of the universe. I don’t THINK so!

Huzzah and congratulations to all the students who observed the peaceful walkout to protest the failure of Congress to enact sensible gun regulations. Could they be failing to act because the NRA donates heavily to some members of Congress? Hmmm? You tell me. I look forward to attending a march on March 24th, to remind Congress that we ARE paying attention to what they do (and don’t do) and plan to vote accordingly.

Here’s a photo of my home town, little Langley, having a protest march on the day after tRump’s inauguration.


Women’s March, Langley edition!

The Panda Convention!

Yes, Virginia, there is a Panda Convention and it took place this past weekend in Sunny Pandiego California, at the home of one of my favorite pandas, the one, the only, the adorable Wu Self! (Pinky: I thought I was your favorite panda, unka bob!) (Can someone check out why Pinky seems to have comment privileges in my posts? She’s not supposed to have access to my computer!)

And who knew there was a Panda Talent event at the convention?

Can you believe the talent being displayed here? Surely Bob should get an Oscar or something!

Stay tuned for a more complete account of the Panda Convention later this week (after I get all the frosting out of my fur!)

Fabulous Furry Friday Presents…

…The Wonderful World of Wu!

Yes, while Pinky tries very hard to have EVERY ‘toon and post be about her, there ARE other pandas out there! (Pinky: dat is just not true, unka bob!) So for today’s encore presentation, let’s look back at some of Mr. Wu’s feature ‘toons, beloved last son of Bai Yun and Gao Gao, from sunny PanDiego!

“Howdy do! I’m Mr. Wu! Who are you?”

And I bet you are happy to see that Little Mr. Wu is safe and sound!

“Wu calls his dance, ‘Ode to a Weaf’ “

Yo ho ho and a bottle of BooBeer!

And, of course my favorite Wu-toon, EVER….

Mr Wu speaks out!

And remember, a day without the adorable Wu Self is a day without sunshine! Hope your Friday is Fabulously Furry!

Viva Le WU!

Day 31: 31 Days of Pandas & The Final Chapter of…

101 Bebe Panda-Nations!!!!

Did you ever think we’d get to the end of 31 Days of Pandas, let alone the end of this year? Not to flog an orange horse (because we don’t believe in hitting things) but I think the turn of the new year will not bring us any immediate release from the toxic cloud we are living under. To those that are resisting the evil that is afoot, stay strong. Take care of yourself; keep fighting for fairness, kindness, support of the planet, and all those who exist on it.

Keep being the bears! (And keep reading panda satire!!!!)

And now, the final episode of 101 Bebe Panda-Nations!

Happy New Year’s Eve and a (Im)peachy New Year!

Hope you get to party like it’s 1999! (With the panda kindergarten!)
Panda On!

The next episode! 101 Bebe Panda-Nations!

We are getting down to the end of the year, to the end of 31 Days of Pandas (SAD!!!!!!) and hopefully the end of the tRump reign of terror. Well, I might be jumping the gun on that one. Remember, it took 2 whole years to build the case against Nixon. Have faith, panda fans! After all, Mr. Mueller belongs to society of people named BOB, and that is exalted company indeed! Heh!

So, without further ado, let’s watch the next episode of 101 Bebe Panda-Nations!

How about that! Pinky DID save the day!

We hope you’ll come back for three more days of encore presentations for 31 Days of Pandas and then Sunday we’ll have the final episode of 101 Bebe Panda-Nations! Huzzah! Let’s put our paws together and make a wish for a kinder, gentler world. Yeah, yeah, I know. Well, at least let’s resolve to watch more panda videos. Here’s one of my favorites of pandas being ESPECIALLY helpful! Enjoy!

Panda On!
