Episode Summary

My Fair Kitty / The Favorite
"My Fair Kitty"

Dongwa's friend, Mung, has a cousin is visiting him for the day for the very first time. And she has the idea that Mung's a palace cat. And coincidently, Mung looks almost exactly like Dongwa. So, while Dongwa gets to enjoy Mung's life, Mung gets tangled up in palace works. After messing up, he runs off. Meanwhile, Tai-Tai's aunt is visiting, and Tai-Tai works extra hard to make the visit memorable. In the end, they each decide that their lives are great just the way it is.

"The Favourite"

Dongwa gets to go fishing with Baba Miao, while Sagwa is made to stay back to finish some scrolls that she was supposed to finish the night before. After being hurt by one of Dongwa's comments, she couldn't concentrate on her work. She runs off, and sees Baba Miao playing with Dongwa. Upset, she boards a boat and goes out to sea with some storks. In the meantime, the Foolish Magistrate is supposed to flag off a race, but because the scroll Sagwa was working on is not finished, the race can't start. Meanwhile, Sagwa's stranded on the boat, because she didn't know that they'll be out the whole day. So, they send for the tortoise to pick her up. And he's pretty grumpy (probably because they interrupted his beauty sleep and made him swim out to sea to pick up Sagwa). Sagwa gets back, and Baba Miao gives her an earfull. Because of her, the race's been postphoned and he's stuck writing her scrolls. She then tells Baba Miao how she feels after hearing Dongwa's comment. Baba Miao clears things up, and they finish the scroll together.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • At the Start and end of "My Fair Kitty", the color of the markings on Mung's fur are distinctly darker than those of Dongwa's. But from the point where he puts on Dongwa's collar until he runs out of the palace, his fur markings were the same color tone as those of Dongwa's.

    • NOTES (3)

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Title: My Fair Kitty
        Half of the plot of the movie "My Fair Lady" involves a high-caste guy teaching a regular cockney-slanged low-caste girl to behave like a high-caste girl. In "My Fair Kitty", the kittens were teaching Mung to behave like a palace cat. Pretty similiar plot if you ask me.
