* YouDidntAsk: In one episode Sagwa goes on a boat ride with a couple of friendly fish-catching birds, only to realize she hasn't written up the rules for a boat race being held in town, and that the boat won't be returning to port for hours. Sagwa gets this response when she asks why they didn't let her know this.

The show has a [[PeripheryDemographic pretty good sized demographic]], and teaches children quite a bit about Chinese culture, legends, and even [[GratuitousForeignLanguage language]]. Sadly for the fans, it lasted only from September 2001 to February 2003. Now has a recap page in the works.

The show has a [[PeripheryDemographic pretty good sized demographic]], and teaches children quite a bit about Chinese culture, legends, and even [[GratuitousForeignLanguage language]]. The fact that it aired on PBS made it especially popular in households without cable. Sadly for the fans, it lasted only from September 2001 to February 2003. Now has a recap page in the works.

** The Magistrate doesn't seem bothered by the fact that he only has three daughters, when in real life, he would have probably kept trying for a son, since daughters could not inherit.

** Brutally inverted in the episode where Tai-Tai decides to keep Fu-Fu as her "lucky bat". She has a seemingly has HeelRealization that animals should be allowed to live free ([[AesopAmnesia something she'd already learned earlier on) and the moment she sees Fu-Fu again she recaptures him. At the reminder of one of her daughters, she refrains from keeping him; however, now the viewer isn't really able to trust her.

* EsotoricHappyEnding: "Tea For Two" ends with Dongwa and the sleeve dogs having made a monkey trainer and his monkeys hated by the entire province. But the sight of a tree supposedly means they'll be wanted at the palace again.

* BrutalHonesty: [[WholePlotReference The episode retelling]] ''Literature/TheEmperorsNewClothes''. Sagwa is told to make a painting of the Magistrate's "new outfit" when she sees nothing. Despite worrying that she'll be kicked out for being deemed foolish, she chooses to draw what she sees: [[FanDisservice that is, him in his underwear.]] Her honesty pays off, though, since the Magistrate deduces that Sagwa can't be foolish as she's one of his smartest cats, and therefore that these clothes must be a sham.

** In another instance, Sheegwa runs off against Sagwa and Dongwa's advice and runs right into the Magistrate and Tai-Tai while they're hosting some guests, which winds up leading to the highly unlikely scenario of her being [[ItMakesSenseInContext mistaken for a princess due to a supposed birthmark]].

** In another episode, Sagwa bails on Dongwa to avoid his bossiness, and doesn't notice when she loses her collar. Naturally, she is mistaken for a stray by a young girl living on a house boat, and is taken in and very nearly taken away from her village. Lucky for Sagwa that a fellow kitten from the pier tipped off the others to what happened to Sagwa or else the young girl's family would never have realized this mistake.
