I know everyone is still feeling very sad, at the departure of our “little bear”. It has been bittersweet, what with all the posts on Twidder and Fezbook of Bubba when he was weally widdle. Hopefully, another round of ‘toons of Bubba’s childhood along with the trials and tribulations of being the little brother to an international super star and Smifsonian Icon, will make everyone just a little less sad.
Thanks for all who posted the pictures of him in his new home. I really loved the BFX base. We spent 2 days there visiting pandas. The yards are large (at least as large as Bubba’s yard back home) and full of mature trees. From the pictures, it looked like many of the trees in his yard did not have tree guards, so he gets to do his favorite activity, climbing. While he had a similar reaction as Pinky had to his first introduction to panda bread, he seems happy about all the bamboo shoots!
Let’s have some Bubba ‘toons, okay?
Funny how Pinky sneaks in to almost all of Bubba’s ‘toons!
I hope you enjoyed this extra big Birthday Season* dose of pandas! Like bubba says, we might be da victims of a repressive regime, so we need all the pandas (and laughs) we can get! Panda on everyone!
Be da (widdle) Bear!

*Yes, it is STILL my birthday season!!!!
😥😥😥😥😥 Every day, since the first day I saw him on his TV debut, I watched Bei Bei . ( I didn’t know the Panda cam existed before that and I had only recently gotten DSL) The Panda cam webpage was my home page so that I would see him first. Even though I love watching Mei and Tian, My heart aches when the web page comes up now. Watching him and his mom helped me cope with profound grief I was dealing with at the time. Your toons are balm for the grief of loss this time. I appreciate you.💖💖💖
Those of us who love pandas have to be able to avoid reality sometimes. I just hope we get to keep Mei and Tian for at least another 5 years. Panda satire will attempt to fill the void as best we can.
