Papa Panda is a character in Panda! Go, Panda!.

Profile

Papa Panda is a male panda that used to reside at a local zoo in town with his son, Panny, before somehow escaping and relocating to Mimiko's house. He has a very friendly personality, greeting people and saying nice things about them. When he offers to be Mimiko's father, he explains in his own way how easy it is for him to do, despite later having no clue how to do things a human would.

History

Papa Panda used to live at the local zoo with his son, Panny, but later escaped and ended up at Mimiko's house. Upon visiting to see if his son was around, he asks if he could be introduced to Mimiko's parents, and Mimiko explains that she doesn't have any parents. Papa Panda then offers to be her father afterward, and she accepts. When he and Panny are found by the zoo keeper and are requested to return to the zone, but Panny somehow ends up in the river flowing downstream towards a floodgate. After Mimiko and Papa save him, the pandas return to the zoo, but on the condition that at the end of the day, they can leave to be with Mimiko.

Trivia

Papa Panda is similar to Totoro in My Neighbor Totoro.
