Up, Up And Away/Spreading Rumors

Season 1, Episode 30 of 40

Up, Up and Away - Sir Richard is back for another adventure and this time he's brought his hot air balloon. Too bad he doesn't know how to pilot it. When Sheegwa is playing around in the balloon it comes unanchored. Sagwa jumps in to try to help Sheegwa out and Sir Richard grabs on to try and re-anchor the balloon. But he's too late. He and the two kittens take an unexpected flight over the mountains. It gives Sir Richard a chance to look for ancient fossils. Sagwa keeps her cool and soothes her anxious little sister. She also uses her wits to save the day after a puncture disables the balloon. Meanwhile, Fu-Fu and Dongwa trail after them in an adventurous pursuit. Spreading Rumors - The Qi Qiao Jie Festival of love and emotion has everybody excited. Sagwa finds out that Dongwa has been ignoring her to play more with Hun-Hun. Without thinking, she starts a little rumor that travels from cat to cat, changing into an awfully big rumor by the end. Meanwhile Cook has been preparing for he festival in all sorts of strange ways. The Magistrate, Tai-Tai and reader are convinced that Cook is in love. Dongwa is confronting Hun-Hun for her awful behavior when Sagwa comes clean, saying she made the rumor up out of jealousy. Dongwa and Sagwa promise to stop the rumor in its tracks and also to spend some more time together. At the festival, everybody sees that Cook does not have a mysterious girlfriend, rather all of his preparations were for a paper mache dragon for the village children.
