Episode Summary

The Zodiac Zoo / The Four Dragons
#13201 The Zodiac Zoo The three kittens are boasting about who will make the best lion, so Nai-Nai interrupts them to tell them their correct zodiac. Dongwa's born on the year of the monkey, Sagwa's born on the year of the dog (Heh, same zodiac as me. Interesting - ed), and Sheegwa's born on the year of the Rat. Nai-Nai then relates to them the legend of how things came to be. It all started a long time ago, when the jade emperor wanted to see who'se the fastest animal in the kingdom. This causes everyone in the kingdom to start bickering among themselves. So, the emperor declares a race. The sequence of the racers who finish will be the sequence of the zodiac. The other animals all put on a 'What? Me worry?' attitude, except for the rat. Using his cunningness and dilligence, he finishes first in the race. The ox comes in second, and the tiger, third. These was followed by the rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog, and pig. The kittens are now interested, so she shows them a scroll with a picture of all 12 animals of the zodiac in order. #13202 The four Dragons The story starts out with Nai-Nai finishing a story of the four dragons. The kittens are enthusiastic about the story now, until the alleycats come along. So, they decide to put on a play based on the story. Sheegwa's the Pearl Dragon (Okay, I'm starting to hate Final Fantasy VI - ed), Dongwa's the Long dragon, Sagwa's the Gold dragon and Fu-Fu's the mysterious black dragon. Shei-Hu's the Jade Emperor, and his cousins are the peasants. The story starts off with the dragons playing in the sea one day, when they hear the peasants cry - there has not been any rain for weeks, and their crops are dying. So, they go see the Jade Emperor, a selfish meanie. He makes an empty promise, so the dragons take things to their own hands and makes it rain. This angers the jade emperor, and he imprisons them inside four mountains ('Tis beginning to sound like something that came out of the classic epic "Journey to thw West" - ed). But the dragons refused to sit still and watch others suffer, and tranforms themselves into the four great rivers of China. Finally, the alleycats are interested, but one dragon story a day is enough.moreless
