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!

Mehitabel would like to register her protest about given the least sympathetic role in this adventure.
Xiao Liwu has to journey to see the wizard
Okay, now it’s getting exciting! Scary parts dead ahead!
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!
