In PBS's animated "Arthur", Sue Ellen and the Armstrongs sponsor Tenzin Wangdu, who in his first appearance ("Sue Ellen's Little Sister"), is shown as a brown bear living in Tibet; by the time he meets Sue Ellen in "Wish You Were Here", his facial markings resemble that of a panda, and even though his family has moved from Tibet to Dharamsala, India, no additional information that I'm aware of has been given yet as to whether or not he's supposed to be some sort of panda subspecies, which leads me to wonder whether or not this would be considered a trope subversion....

Special Agent Oso sounds like a bit of a YMMV example: even though his facial markings are similar to a panda's, his colors are green and yellow, and due to a lack of further species evidence to support the theory, I was wondering if Special Agent Oso would be a subverted or averted example of "Panda-ing to the Audience".....

I am surprised that the Panda King from Sly Cooper is not present under "Video Games". While he isn't "adorable", I believe he is still worth mentioning.

Would Red Pandas count?

They are pretty adorable, so I would think so.
