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.
