Storyline

Sagwa (a kitten), her siblings, and her parents are owned by a Chinese official called "The Foolish Magistrate" (since he tends to make laws and proclamations rather grandiosely and illogically) in 19th Century China. She and her parents are "scribe" cats, who transcribe the magistrate's words to paper in beautiful calligraphy. The series begins by showing how Sagwa came to the magistrates favor by negating one of his foolish laws at the same time ink-staining her face to appear as a Siamese cat. She has many adventures with her siblings, her friend Fufu (a bat), and the local village cats who don't live as luxuriously as her and her family. Written by Tony B

more asians please
27 September 2002 | by wobinSee all my reviews

i appreciate that sesame workshop is trying to show diverse cultures... but i just wish that more of the cast was actually chinese, or at least asian. i just think that it's strange that the characters are chinese, but the voices aren't. sometimes the characters use chinese phrases, and i feel like some of the voice actors don't really have mastery over the chinese language; so they don't have a realistic accent.

overall it's good show, and it's really fun for the kids. i know sesame workshop is doing the best it can to provide quality shows.
