I beliiiiieeeeeve in Sad Panda Q&A!

Five minutes in and logic's already abandoned us. We're getting better!
Welshy, episode 9

Sad Panda Q&A is a strange show hosted by former Channel Awesome contributor and YouTube account holder Welshy and former That Guy with the Glasses music producer Sad Panda. Any claims that this series actually answers questions are quite false.


The show was hosted by TGWTG, and supposedly viewers can send Sad Panda questions, which are then asked by Welshy. While he tries to get Panda to give at least one straight answer every episode, he usually fails after being blocked out by assorted madness such as cameos, flashbacks, insulting Cferra, subtitles, warning signs, and commercial breaks. Needless to say it has a very light grasp on continuity and one certainly shouldn't go there hoping to learn something about Panda.

The show has returned for a second season on

For Panda's other equally bizarre show, see Forget About It.


The series contains the following tropes:

  • The Cameo: Lots of reviewers (both on and off the site) drop in to ask questions, comment, or just be plain weird.
  • Cheese-Eating Surrender Monkeys:
    Smarty: Panda, you stay here. And put that white flag down, dammit!
  • Content Warnings: One is voiced by Welshy and is sentient. And once held Panda hostage.
  • Cool Shades: Worn by Panda, Welshy, and Linkara in episode 9.
  • Creepy Monotone: When Welshy obeys Panda after being given a mind-control drug.
  • Death Is Cheap: Welshy has died at least three times, twice in one episode, and once came back as a ghost.

  • Death Is Dramatic: Smarty in the Halo version of the show's origin story.
  • Department of Redundancy Department:
    Welshy: The crack seems to be linked to Magfest. Where there will be video games, booze, music, booze, and scantily clad women wearing very little.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: When Welshy regenerates as ObscurusLupa in episode 10, Skitch has to try hard not to stare. And then in reverse as Panda regenerates as The Cinema Snob and uses his sexy voice.
  • Does Not Like Women: He believes they are hellspawn. When The Cat appeared on his show, he tried to shoo her away with a broom.
  • Dramatic Thunder: Starts off episode 6.
  • Evil Laugh: ChaosD1 gives us a powerful one in his first appearance.
  • Flame War: Between the two in a four-video arc that ends with them going to MAGfest.
  • Freeze-Frame Bonus: In episode 5, an image of The Cat flashes briefly when they are explaining the budget cuts due to a cameo demanding lots of money.
  • Fun with Subtitles: Every episode, most notably episode 5, where they describe everything that is happening in the first few minutes before they piss off Welshy and he shoots them.
  • Go Look at the Distraction: To keep Panda from pointing out that the new theme song is from Power Rangers.
    Welshy: Look over there! It's a happy Panda!
    Panda: Really? *leaves and returns with a panda puppet*...Now what was I saying?
    Welshy: You were going to send me some money.
  • Hypocritical Humor:
    Welshy: Sorry. Sorry, sorry, but I just don't apologize.
  • Insult Backfire: In episode 6, Panda doesn't want to talk to Welshy, so he mutes him and plays the Power Rangers theme with lyrics changed to "Welshy is a douche bag!". Welshy shrugs and dances along.
  • Jizz In My Pants: Panda while talking about Olivia Wilde.
  • Large Ham: "I beliiiiieeeeeve in Panda Q&A!"
  • Large Ham Announcer: Skitch does several announcer segments for the show. In episode 9, The Cinema Snob does it and the two get in a fight.
  • Literal-Minded: When asked how he writes his songs, he holds up a sheet of paper with the words "A Song" written on it. He also thinks The Cat is an actual cat, telling her to chase a ball of yarn and shooing her away with a broom.
  • Word Salad Lyrics:
    It's fun to answer questions by giving answers.
    I don't have a theme song,
    so I say everything that come out of my head:
    Blimp, sausages, prostitute, propeller, fork, questions!
  • Your Mom: Done by Panda to Welshy. Completely unprovoked and at random.

I beliiiiieeeeeve!

How well does it match the trope?
