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.”
