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

Get the idea of it being on hiatus out of YOUR HEAD!
7 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

This show is appalling! Who in their right mind would want to watch this? I never liked how Sagwa treated her brother as a kid and I can't imagine any kid who would! That show is nothing but a Garfield rip-off, and her brother's a wannabe Odie.

First of all, if you're going to make a kids show (educational), don't make the main character a jerk. I wonder how many kids have learn nothing from watching this.

Second, make a show that's easy to spell. I tried like one time putting it on the annoying laugh page on TV.Tropes & I mispelled it. I was eventually able to copy and paste it on Idea wiki.

I could rant for several more paragraphs about this, but the review I copied from TV.com had stop here. I just hope everyone didn't get offended like last time.
