The Jade Rabbit/Dongwa's Best Friend

Season 1, Episode 31 of 40

The Jade Rabbit - Fu-Fu and Sagwa sit out an evening rain shower in the shelter of the pagoda. A friendly rabbit shows up and dodges the rain with them. As Sagwa and Fu-Fu are about to enjoy the last mooncake of the season, the rabbit tells his take on the origin of mooncakes. Weaving a story about an evil ruler of the moon who refuses to send his mooncakes to earth to save humankind, the rabbit shows how a crafty plan and hope can defeat evil for the sake of all. Dongwa's Best Friend - There's a new cat in town, Won-Tom and he's impressed everybody with his cool what-me-worry attitude. Dongwa signs on as his new pal and lion dancing partner. After Won Tom takes all the credit for the successful lion dance, Dongwa realizes that he was too impressed with a shallow cool cat and finds that he was identifying himself too much through his new friend. After snubbing Sagwa and Fu-Fu for Won Tom, Dongwa has to learn to just be himself.
