Production of heavy quarkonia is arguably one of the most fascinating subjects in strong interaction physics. It offers unique perspectives into the formation of QCD bound states. However, since the discovery of J/psi over 35-year ago, theorists still have not been able to fully understand its production mechanism. I will review some of the recent surprises and anomalies in heavy quarkonium production, and offer some thoughts and challenges on the issues.
