Episode Summary

Cat and Mouse / Stinky Tofu
"Cat and Mouse"

When Sagwa, Sheegwa and Dongwa are caught playing with their mice friends in the palace where they're not supposed to be, they make a break for it. Sagwa and Sheegwa end up in the alley, where the alley cats want to know what Sagwa's doing there. Sheegwa blabs about playing with the mice and the alley cats make fun of her, saying that cats are better than mice and telling her about how cats eat mice. Sheegwa refuses to accept it and vows to remain friends with the mice, but Sagwa lets it get to her and when the mice want to play Tag later, she refuses. She later has a talk with Fu-Fu. She tells him about what the alley cats said and Fu-Fu says that they're ignorant. Just because Sagwa and the mice are different doesn't mean they can't be friends, after all, the same is true with Fu-Fu and her. Sagwa apologizes to the mice, saying that she's sorry she wouldn't play with them earlier. She was being ignorant.

"Stinky Tofu"

Sagwa loves listening to Yeh-Yeh's stories. In fact, she's listening to one right now, but then the cook calls them. He wants them to try some One-Hundred Year Old tofu. Yeh-Yeh gobbles it right up, but Sagwa can't even stand the smell of it. Yeh-Yeh finishes the tofu and he wants to finish telling Sagwa his story. Sagwa runs off. Yeh-Yeh's breath stinks from the tofu, but she doesn't want to tell him and hurt his feelings. Then the magistrate orders the cook to find some more of the tofu, but it seems like an impossible task. It took him forever to find what he did find. Yeh-Yeh enlists Sagwa's help. Sagwa uses her nose to find the tofu and eventually admits to Yeh-Yeh that the reason she ran off wasn't because she doesn't like his stories, but because his breath stunk. Yeh-Yeh thanks her for telling the truth. He didn't know. Being rather old, his sense of smell isn't very strong.moreless
