Season 1, Episode 37 of 40

Shei-Hu's Secret - When Sagwa convinces Shei Hu to take her to his secret domain, she discovers a mouse village like none other - a community of happy mice scurrying around, walking on stilts made of chopsticks, and even riding a merry go round! Sagwa can't believe her eyes! Although she's promised Shei-Hu that she wouldn't reveal her knowledge of the mouse village to anyone, Sagwa can't contain her excitement. Unfortunately, once Sagwa breaks her promise dire repercussions follow. The mouse village is destroyed and Sagwa quickly learns that there are consequences to not keeping your word. Homesick Jun - Jun is very happy as the teacher of the Foolish Magistrate's daughters. She has just decided to stay at the palace when a fortuneteller tells her that she will soon be "at home." Confused, Jun begins to feel homesick because everyone at the palace seems to ignore and avoid her. She decides to leave the palace for good but is delayed by Sheegwa who, frustrated that her clumsy nature keeps messing things up, stows away in her bag. In the end, a surprise party honoring Jun shows how much she is appreciated. Jun begins to view the fortuneteller's prediction in a different way- realizing that she is in fact home, for home is inside you!
