Sagwa, The Chinese Siamese Cat

Sagwa The Stray/...And Action

Season 1, Episode 27 of 40

Sagwa the Stray - Sagwa gets mistaken for a stray cat and is taken aboard a houseboat that is just passing through the village. The little girl who found her only wants a friend to love on her lonely boat. Meanwhile, Dongwa's been left in charge of his siblings. When he and Sheegwa realize Sagwa is missing, he starts a search party, assigning the role of leader to himself. Ignoring the helpful counsel of a friendly and lonely stray, Dongwa starts out as a stubborn and headstrong leader. He soon learns, however, that the best way to lead is to step back and listen to others. In the end, the helpful stray helps locate Sagwa and finds a home of her own on the boat. ...And Action - Two French film directors introduce motion pictures to the palace. In his pursuit of fame, Dongwa forgets to just be himself. The Foolish Magistrate and Tai-Tai also vie for the camera' s attention. The only one who is not interested in immortalizing his image on film is humble Cook. As the cats and humans watch the film, they see how silly their antics were and are reminded that the search for fame sometimes leads to behavior you might regret later on.
