Episode Summary

Sagwa the Stray / ...And Action
#12701 Sagwa the stray. When Dongwa is put in charge, he gets bossy, causing Sagwa to run off on her own. While she's own her own, she meets a stray cat named Chung-Nee and slips out of her special collar that indicates that she's a royal cat. A girl (who seems kind of like Elmyra Duff from Tiny Toon Adventures) finds Sagwa and, thinking that she's a stray, decides to take her home. Meanwhile, Chung-Nee meets up with Dongwa, who has begun a frantic search for Sagwa. She tries to tell him that she saw Sagwa, but his bossiness gets the better of him and he ignores her, since the cat she saw was not wearing a collar. This continues until finally Sagwa's collar is found. Fu-fu is sent with Sagwa's collar to rescue her and Chung-Nee goes home with the girl after Dongwa realizes the value of her help and does a nice thing for her by writing in Chinese characters that her name is Chung-Nee and she's a cat in need of a good home. #12702 ...And Action. Two French-men come to the village on behalf of the Emperor, showing off their latest invention: moving pictures. They want to film life in the village and the Magistrate loves the idea of being filmed, but the film-makers seem more interested in the cats and their amazing writing-abilities. Dongwa senses a chance to be a star, but ends up only providing amusement when he acts silly instead of doing any actual writing. Meanwhile, Cook is camera-shy and turns down several requests to be in the film, saying that he is a very private man.moreless

    • NOTES (4)

      • Close-captioning in "Sagwa the Stray" alternates between spelling Lee-Wun's name with a dash and without.

      • What About You? Segment: A kid talks about his neighbourhood, then Fu-Fu takes us to Australia to learn about a kid who lives in a ranch.

      • Curious Cat Segment: Sagwa talks about her family.

      • One of the film-makers says that once something is captured on film, it's around forever. It's true that a lot of what's filmed gets saved, and some of the "unusable" stuff often makes for amusing "bloopers" segments and shows. However, a large amount of what's filmed for television shows and movies is actually deleted in editing, such that what's deleted is often much larger than what actually makes it to the screen.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Fu-fu: I'm ready for my closeup.
        Fu-fu's line is a popular catchphrase that first came into the public consciousness in the 1950 flick Sunset Boulevard.
