    Yowza!!! Someone’s been reading the comments, I think…

  6. Man, and the people of DC get so excited over just one. This is 16x’s the cuteness!

  7. Very cute! Too bad it’s just a photoshop job. 😦

  8. okaasan59 says:

    Not photoshopped. It’s a real “school for pandas” opened in China. Go to this link:
    and watch the video because OMFGthecuteisalmosttoomuch!!!

  9. and they say you just keep chasing the dragon, whattabout the friggin room full o’ pandas? holy shit!!!!!!
    we have achieved cute nirvana, omg!

  10. OH HOLY MOSES. The video! The video is just too much! I thought the photo was faked, too, but that video confirms all my wildest dreams of Cute Explosion.

  11. Ahhh! so cute.

  12. uhh cute but whered all them come from?

  13. Are they all sniffing eachothers BUTTS or is it just me!! Cute!!

  14. JessJess says:

    HEHEHEHE! Watching them go down the slide was too much, I think my brain is going to explode!

  15. Nose-fur-atu says:

    I have the irresistible urge to jump in there and roll around with them.

  16. Holy crap, that’s me!

  17. Pandas are the BEST -heart heart heart-

  18. it’s 15, actually ^_^

  19. Not so sure, Mike. I count 16, and have read in all the reports on this Giant Panda Breeding Center that they currently have 16 cubs, aged 5-7 months.

  20. Rule number nine… check!

  21. Subhangi says:


    I’m deranged by the cuteness.

  22. BenPanced says:

    I want that one and that one and that one and that one and…and…and…

  23. That’s GOT to hit some sort of cuteness threshold. I’m surprised yourtube hasn’t exploded with these videos.

  24. Amanda Lou Snow says:

    Panda’s Panda’s everywhere.

  25. I really want to squish one of these panda’s, they look so chunky and soft, like a really good pillow!!

    Also, I thought it was difficult for pandas to breed? I’m sure they have been trying in England for ages and had little sucess?

    If I could, I’d sit one on my desk at work to keep me happy all day long!!


  26. O.K. the picture is darn cute, but the video, oh the video! What precious, pudgy, precocious wittle bubbies! I truly can not stand it. Do you think I could get a job there? Do you think they’d let me cuddle up with all 16 of them every night.

    I love, love, love all this cuteness. Keep it coming. I think I’m addicted.

  27. I am a happy panda. :3

  28. omg it is amazing i love it

  29. omg it is amazing i love it

  30. Jan Spencer says:

    That is just awesome…

  31. Why don’t they just make a break for it? Sheer numbers are on their side.

  32. chunkstyle says:

    I think a few of those are panda dogs… :>)

  33. They’re such beautiful ikle wubby things.

    Such a shame their species is endangered.

  34. rolie polie rolie polie rolie polie PANDAS

  35. WOW! That’s like Cuteness Overload to the power of 16. I am going to be reeling from this one all day.

  36. It’s Cuteness Overload Overload!

  37. MilkyWei says:

    Aaaaah!! cuuuuuute!!!!

    Here’s a longer clip of the panda video ^__^

  38. oh I just got these in an email the other day! I’d SO love to have a room like this in my house. <3!!! :)



  40. pandy fackler!!

  41. omg! big fuzzy butts!

    /me dies

  42. I’d love to be dogpiled-upon by these fuzzy cuties! Or would that be “panda-piled” instead? ^__^

    This is better than a cup of coffee, and sweeter than toast with honey!


  43. Ahhhh… bear therapy.

  44. toast with honey…..auuummm (in homer simpson voice)

  45. panda-piled by fuzzy cuties, naked.
    bare therapy.

  46. Goodgooglymoogly!
    If I should die before I wake I pray to God I end up in this pile of pandas! Are we sure we aren’t glimpsing what heaven looks like?!

  47. Greatest. Picture. Ever. I want to work for panda daycare!

  48. I love it how there is enough of them to SWARM things. SWARMING WITH PANDAS. That idea fills me with a love I cannot describe.

  49. i love the opening scene where one of the pandas on the bench swats the head of another one walking by on the ground. hahahaha!

    i accidentally watched the video while listening to Coin-Operated Boy by the Dresden dolls and it was the perfect bumbling-circus-y background music.

  50. most definitely a photoshop job.

  51. Oh, geez. Those cuddlies are like splitting-mercury balls of cuteness! I’d like to make a request for more panda action on cuteoverload.

  52. Dustbunny says:

    Ooh ooh ooh…a plethora of pandas!

  53. Teeth… grinding…
    Must… curb… peeve… rage…
    [deep breaths]

    Maria, some links for you:

    Don’t be The Girl Who Cried Photoshop. It’s unhealthy. If not for you, then for me.

  54. then again, many of us have been there before.

    it’s kind of a rite of passage, maria. just sit back & enjoy being skooled by theo and his eggbeater.

  55. Point taken, Finn.
    I’m better now.

  56. I must MOVE TO SICHUAN.

  57. I want that job!!

  58. dwarf rabbit owner too! says:

    A. J. “PANDAMONIUM” great one!

  59. E. Collison says:

    I keep wondering when they’re going to figure out how to crawl up and flip that lock open…

  60. dwarf rabbit owner too! says:

    Ooo baby…baby… bababababy x 16!

  61. hate to spoil the fun – this was clearly a photoshop pix.

  62. “Um” — see above, or be eaten.

  63. B.O.B.

  64. Photo Bonus Friday!

  65. Oh yeah, there’s this one too…

  66. THIS is what I wanted for Xmas! AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW, so much cuteness in one place, I’m about to faint!

  67. dwarf rabbit owner too! says:

    Oh my! How cute is that panda goin’ down the slide! Thanks for puting a link here Theo!

  68. I agree it is sooo cute, and sooo photoshopped. The shading is all wrong and proportions too, but who cares it’s cute!

    And before you say “follow links” I did. And not a one had this picture on it, or anything close. IN fact, most of them showed the cutey patooties outside, not in a small pen.

  69. Pandys — follow THIS link, smartass.

    Normally I’d deep-link the photo directly, but you pissed me off, so find it yourself.

  70. WOW!!!!!! Really appreciate you being the authority and supplier of fresh pandas. I will supply your e-mail to all my friends, family, loved ones, and co-workers to ask for these pics in the near future directly from you and only you. Cheers!

  71. Maria, if you’re talking to me, um… my email address isn’t available to you, so good luck with that. You seem to have made available to the public, though.

    The panda “authority” is a zoo facility in China, by way of — which really is a good one to bookmark, by the way.

    Now, if only would go live, the internet would finally be finished & perfect.

  72. *pandaspasm* So…many…pandas…

  73. More like Rascel Centrel

  74. Yes. That’s the one. I’d love to hear from you. Here’s a great one for you. This one is a much better as an example of a truly great Photoshop panda photo. None of that cheap stuff that T-H-E-O is so fond of posting.

  75. You know, I think someone has assumed that CuteOverload is *my* site, which is pretty funny.
    Though — I suppose I did kinda go nuts here today; it was a very slow day at the office…

  76. Jeff_from_MD says:

    The panda kindergarten was publicized and covered like last year in china.

    Pretty sad to see that when America only now sees a glimpse of it, even then they’re crying fake. Stop confusing real life with internet life. It’s gettin’ annoyin.

  77. Theo: you could probably take over if Meg ever decides to retire.

    (don’t do it though Meg!)

  78. [rubbing hands together with the thought of PHENOMENAL COSMIC POWERS]

  79. Fall;;Out;;Boy says:

    Its like Inc-u-bay-shon all over again!!



  80. this is my favorite..I just want to lie down and take a nap next to these all these pandas! squeal!

  81. I wanna hug all of them.

  82. sorry guys.. this is most certaintly a very amateur fake. worse than that whole GFP glowing bunny nonsense.

  83. Are all of these people crying “PHOTOSHOP!” and “fake!” white/non-Asian? This was covered in Chinese news like…last year or last last year or something. @.@ It’s very real.

  84. I just thought of something. =/ Maybe people think it’s fake cuz of “shading”. Pandas don’t stay white. =) The white parts go yellow-y cuz they get dirty, and it’s just varying degrees of dirtiness, not shading/lighting.

  85. Awwwwwwwww…

  86. Aww..! I just want to hug one! Oh, and as to all the Photoshop people, follow the very first link posted. It will show you a very real news report featuring the pandas. Now, please tell me, how could someone with Photoshop rig an entire news crew, find a panda cub, and have him play with imaginary cubs, and film him sixteen times over? I’d love to be able to do THAT with Photoshop.

  87. raechel says:

    i think this is what heaven will look like.

  88. The cutest infestation ever!

  89. It’s Pandamonium!

  90. Wonderland42 says:

    Why is it that the people who cry photoshop post links to pictures they claim are “Superior Photoshop ACKSHUN”, and the pictures end up being really really badly done?

  91. OMGSH! ^_______^
    if i had a panda cub,
    id name it CHIMI SAMURAI! agegegege =P

  92. Photoshop or not, it is very cute and that is all that matters to me! PANDA’s!!
