Panda-monium / Festival of Lanterns

We open to a fierce storm. The next day, news have it that a brave man has saved two people from drowning the night before, and will be given an award by the Foolish Magistrate for his brave deed. For that, the kittens cannot be in the palace. So, they go exploring - until they reached a bush. They hear a loud roar. Fearing a mountain lion, they retreat to the club house. There they meet Fu-Fu, who goes check things out and discovers a bear. They let the hero idea get to their head and wants to capture the panda. So, they they try to catch it, but it escapes. They then chase it. When they finally have it cornered, it turns out that the panda is just a baby named Ling-Ling, and is lost. So, they work to get the panda reunited with it's mother. But they've accidentally chased it into the palace! So, they sneak the panda out, and then takes it back to the hills, while subliminally slipping facts on pandas to the viewers. Suddenly, a wild rabid dog appears, and they make a break for it - to the nearest tree. Luckily, the panda's mother shows up and chases the dog away. So, the grateful mother is reunited with it's baby, and the kittens and Fu-Fu are heroes. The end.
