Most of my faithful friends and readers here at The Panda Chronicles know that the real life Mei Xiang and Lun Lun are half sisters, sharing their dad, I believe. While Mei Xiang is the picture of responsible motherhood, I somehow always picture Lun Lun as the more flamboyant sister, who has taken on the persona of a southern belle, always sending her last cubbies, the somewhat…um…problematic Six and Sebben off to her sister’s house.
I mean, Meizzy has all these other bears and odd characters hanging out at the DC Panda House, so what does it matter if Lun Lun’s more …um…adventurous daughters are added to the mix, bless their hearts?
Things are about to get interesting down in Pandalanta! Are they ready for it? I guess we’ll see!
Be the Bear! Bob T Panda
Be sure to check out things over at Substack! Six and Sebben are featured in honor of their 7th birthday!
Technically speaking, Saturday September 3rd is their birthday and believe it or don’t, they are turning 6! How is this possible? (Lun Lun: Tell me about it, bless their hearts!)
So, without further ado (or any thoughts about just where the documents that went in those empty top secret folders are…) let’s dive into the archives for the Best (ha ha) of Six and Sebben!
I bet this was the last time it was Aunty Mei’s idea for Six and Sebben to visit the DC panda house!
I hope you enjoyed this round up of ‘toons featuring Six and Sebben! we are lucky to still have them in Pandalanta this long. Or maybe China kept saying, “Um, the number you have reached is not in service…please send different pandas if you think you have reached this number in error.”
Be the Bear Bob T I definitely did not take those classified documents out of those folders Panda
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!
Ever since I discovered that Mei Xiang and Lun Lun are half sisters, it has opened my eyes to the relationship between Six and Sebben. How is that, you might wonder…
Funny you should ask…
Oh those panda sisters!
A brief procedural note, I had to take down the felty panda page because it wasn’t working correctly. You can still request and order felty pandas. I will try to highlight some here on the main page I try to rebuild a page that actually works! Just remember, my tech knowledge is shallow yet narrow!
Six: all da pressies are for mee! Sebben: dat’s not troo! Six: an only i get a cake Sebben: nuh uh! mommee said wee each get one. Six; yoo already ate yoors Sebben: i did not!!!! Six: well, yoors is gone Sebben: YOO ATE MY CAKE! Six: prove it Sebben: i’m telling mommee LL: sigh
And now, the conclusion of Being Endangered is Such a Curse!
I hope you enjoyed our Encore presentation of Being Endangered is Such a Curse! Have a Liddle cake to celebrate! (Not to mention all the propeller spinning on Bubba’s cap!)
I thought we’d start out with one of my favorite stories of the Meihems (which, of course, include Miss Pinky Panda!) Inspired by the real life drama that took place concerning a certain bridge between NJ and NY, and involves a certain governor…
WE call it: HIGHWAY GATE!!!
Oh that Pinky! (Plus you will notice how she managed to hijack this ‘toon series celebrating Meihem Month!)
Toon in this week to see if I actually get any new ‘toons done for this week!
What is in a name? Would a panda by any other name be as cute? The Atlanta Zoo has chosen to name their newest little panda after a hollywood cartoon character. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve seen Kung Fu Panda at least 3 times, as we get a serious kick out of watching a CAT get his butt kicked by a PANDA, but as this is the second panda this year to be named “Po,” isn’t that enough? What will happen to this panda when he gets repatriated to the panda ranch in China? Do you know how much fun the other pandas are going to make of him? Did you ever think of THAT????? I mean, they could have named him something more dignified like, for instance, “Bob.”
