I wish these things came with subtitles... although the aaaa-chooo is self-explanatory in any language.

I didn't see the pup at first, and assumed the mom had "sneezed" it out - then the *pup* sneezed! Megacute!

 |  Aug 25, 2006 at 08:36 PM

Lotta noise packed into them little panda socks.

 |  Aug 25, 2006 at 08:47 PM

Funniest thing I've seen and heard all day!

 |  Aug 25, 2006 at 08:48 PM

LOL - Lurv Mom's start & look at pandalette as if even she can't believe that noise came from le bebe.

Bless you!

 |  Aug 25, 2006 at 09:27 PM

OH MY GOODNESS! That startled me!! It's hilarious how the pig panda is like "WTF?!!"

 |  Aug 25, 2006 at 09:37 PM

That was the funniest thing I've seen all year.

I'm sorry my comerades in cute-appreciation, but the surroundings are too grim to appreciate the cuteness of that sneeze and surprise. Sorry to be a joy-snuffer, but cute is not cute when a mother and her new-born are in prison.

 |  Aug 25, 2006 at 09:48 PM

Its not a prison. Its either Wolong or Chengdu Panda Nature Reserve in China. The reserves have worked very hard to update their facilities. They are putting more and more money into conservation. The reserves are surrounded by lush forests where the pandas spend much time.

There is an English language version of this film on YouTube:

That has got to be the best one yet - that noise totally made me jump! I didn't expect it from the itty bitty widdle panda!!! Bless you!! Salud!! Gesundheit!!

 |  Aug 25, 2006 at 11:28 PM

I assumed the mummy bear was going to sneeze and I was waiting/hoping to see Weetbix fly out of her mouth in all directions.

 |  Aug 26, 2006 at 12:20 AM

Thank you for the link in English. It's nice to know what's going on. But I have to say... the one in Japanese is a whole ton funnier. ^_^ I can't stop watching it!!!

 |  Aug 26, 2006 at 12:41 AM

that cannot be reeeeealll~~~

 |  Aug 26, 2006 at 12:46 AM


Mamapanda: *munchmunch*

Teenybebehpanda: HACHOOOO!

Mamapanda: OMGWTFBBQ?!?!

I kinda feel like the narrator is saying: "What the mama panda *doesn't* know is that we've replaced her baby with a hiccupping robot panda. Let's take a look to find out what happens..."

 |  Aug 26, 2006 at 01:10 AM



I think I've watched it 20 times already. At first I thought it was the mum sneezing, which was funny enough, then I realized it was bebeh panda! hahahaha

Darkflame, that's exactly how it went. :)

So funny. xD

 |  Aug 26, 2006 at 01:31 AM

I've got tears running down my face.
Laughed so much I didn't know if I was laughing or crying and partly because of your comments, folks. Saved my day!

 |  Aug 26, 2006 at 01:41 AM

I love it, I love it. This is now my favorite Youtube video. So redonk!

Oh, and "What the mama panda *doesn't* know is that we've replaced her baby with a hiccupping robot panda. Let's take a look to find out what happens..."

Tewtelly awesome XD

 |  Aug 26, 2006 at 01:41 AM

Oh, my God... I'm a longtime panda watcher (I've had to hide the DC Zoo PandaCam link in my secret menu so I'm not discovered), and THAT is incredibly hilarious.

And Lorna, ffleur is right-- a baby panda who has made it to that stage is born to a well-tended mom, and they're BOTH getting lotsa quality "outside" time.
For better or worse, the Chinese government treats its pandas better than it treats its human prisoners.
[End political rant]

Back to the cute!

It just keeps getting funnier each time you watch it.

 |  Aug 26, 2006 at 02:42 AM

The best way to start a day!

 |  Aug 26, 2006 at 03:24 AM

The very best way of starting the day!

 |  Aug 26, 2006 at 03:25 AM

hahaha! what ws that panda eating, glued up corn flakes??!?! and hear the baby sneeze " acccccccccccccccccccccccccchhhhhhhhhhhhhoooooo!!"
the mother was surprised theere aswell! lol

 |  Aug 26, 2006 at 03:40 AM

OMG! I CANNOT stop laughing!

 |  Aug 26, 2006 at 04:04 AM

ahahahaha!!! wheee!

 |  Aug 26, 2006 at 04:36 AM

That's so cute!

Though I agree with the earlier poster who said it looks like they're in prison. I understand someone else said there are lush greens nearby, I wonder if they always have access to that?

 |  Aug 26, 2006 at 05:00 AM


the mom's arm doesnt go back down all the way!

cuuuuuuuuute :]

 |  Aug 26, 2006 at 05:02 AM


*way* too freakin' hilarious. I thought Mom Panda was going to sneeze and blow little tiny Junior away. Totally hysterical.

A thinker
 |  Aug 26, 2006 at 05:12 AM

I've burst my liver laughing. Watched it 10 times already and plan to at least 1000 more. Cuteoverloadoverload. omg

 |  Aug 26, 2006 at 05:19 AM

I think it's brilliant.
Most likely the room we see here is the pandas' night quarters, and during the daytime they are allowed to go in and out as they please to an outdoor enclosure with greenery. The concrete is simply practical - it's solid, weatherproof and easy to clean out. Calling a conservation facility (without which pandas would be even closer to extinction than they are) a prison is just wrong.

 |  Aug 26, 2006 at 05:24 AM

OH too funny! sounded like a real human sneeze I have heard before!!

Jan Spencer
 |  Aug 26, 2006 at 05:54 AM

Sounded more like a yelp than a sneeze.

 |  Aug 26, 2006 at 05:59 AM

Thanks Lorna, I was actually smiling before I read your comment. ....

Apart from that, I looved the momma's reaction! Me too I thought the mother was gonna sneeze, something could have happened with that biscuit. Then "AAATCHIIK!". I was like "Oh there's a baby panda!".
Lol, it was calm, momma was eating and then KAPPAAAW. :-D I imagine the momma being like "Holly Molly!".
"Red Alert: earthquake!... ha it's just the baby sneezing..." ;-o
Hope she didn't swallowed her biscuit the wrong way with that.

OMG! That is hilarious! I can't stop laughing - I can't stop watching!

 |  Aug 26, 2006 at 06:44 AM

OMG! That is hilarious! I can't stop laughing - I can't stop watching!

 |  Aug 26, 2006 at 06:47 AM

OMG - That is one LOUD bebbeh.

(Reminds me of my granpa and uncle - their sneezing always frightens me.)

 |  Aug 26, 2006 at 06:51 AM

Cannot. Stop. Replaying.

 |  Aug 26, 2006 at 07:23 AM

I laughed so hard when I watched that!! I almost choked on my cookie! It's frickin hilarious. Cute little beebee panda needs a tissue.

Darkflame, you hit the nail right on the head.

 |  Aug 26, 2006 at 07:25 AM

omg that was hilarious!! made me LOL.
I had to watch it 3 times, first I didn't know which one was agonna sneeze, second to watch the baby sneeze, third to watch mama's reaction.
Mama's reaction kind of reminded me of Homer Simpson getting the cannonball in the belly in slo-mo. Bit of jigglage there!!!
Fox should have a whole show like this..."When Animals Have Sneeze Attacks"

 |  Aug 26, 2006 at 07:29 AM

Oh dear, that is completely hilarious. Poor Mama.

And, your comments, peeps. Simply wonderful!

*smiling for the day, now*

 |  Aug 26, 2006 at 07:44 AM

Maybe those who are having problems with captivity and zoos, etc. could try and see a positive spin on it: these animals will probably live longer in here, than in the wild (where they could be injured without help, or killed by a wild/predatory animal). We will try and see it this way, so that the "cute" will come through. The mom in this video is like a big mountain that jumps, when she is completely taken off-guard! The behbeh keeps on sleeping/resting, unaffected. I agree with Meg---the "creeping up on you" music is too much!! :^)

I had no idea that baby pandas had huge tails. They must be absorbed into the blubberbellies as they grow, just like a tadpole!

 |  Aug 26, 2006 at 08:01 AM

I'm 9 months pregnant, and I'll have you know that I *almost* pee'd when I saw this. My ribs hurt from laughing now. Nice way to start my day!

 |  Aug 26, 2006 at 08:23 AM

the music in the background just adds so much...wonder how long it takes for Mama Bear to start eating again!

 |  Aug 26, 2006 at 08:58 AM

Oh good god. That made me laugh so much. The mother's reaction to the bebeh's giant sneeze is the best, best part. Oh man... REPLAY!

I did notice she only stopped chewing for a millisecond and then it was nahm nahm again.
