Sagwa, The Chinese Siamese Cat is an animated educational show created by Amy Tan and produced by CinéGroupe and Sesame Workshop that originally aired on PBS and TVO-Kids from September 3, 2001 to October 5, 2004, with 40 episodes made (79 total segments).[1] It followed the misadventures of Sagwa, her two siblings, and occasionally their friends as they went to various locations and learned more about their family's history, China's residents, and themselves.

The show was very successful and popular during its run, winning four awards and generally getting good ratings on the network. Consequently, the show frequently re-ran on most PBS affiliates until 2009. The show was re-broadcasted on TVO until 2013, on the Knowledge network until 2014, and for a short time on TFO in early 2017.

Availability

Despite the show's popularity, less than half of the show's episodes were released on any official home media. Additionally, 16 segments (five of which were also released on home media) are available on TFO's French website, but they are region-locked to Canada.

However, many fans of the show have collectively uploaded nearly every episode online, primarily on YouTube.

This makes me very upset... Sagwa was my favorite show as a kid, but I never owned any of the episodes. I still remember a majority of the episodes, but not enough that would be helpful :(

I remember Sagwa, I watched it all the time and then it mysteriously disappeared. I thought it was a dream until I found the intro on YouTube.

Hi, it's CatscratchFan4004. I uploaded "Tea For Two" (titled here as "Tea For Two Monkeys") from one of my own VHS tapes and "Tribal Cats" in high quality that I found on a forum from a Canadian encoder.

I loved that show as a kid! It was so cute. It's sad and sort of surreal that there's missing episodes. Any time media like this that used to just be part of regular life growing up turns out to be lost or partially lost, it's the weirdest feeling. It was just something I took for granted as a kid. I watched it all the time and obviously it wasn't obscure. So weird that some thing are just part of your normal life, but then you figure out there's parts that can only be found in your memory, until/unless it resurfaces. I think something like this would probably be more likely to resurface than a lot of things. Still though, there's a lot of things we wish we had a time machine for so we could go back and prevent them from being destroyed, so we could archive them, record them, ect. It kills me inside thinking that the first full length animated film is gone forever. Animation has so much work put into it; it should just die like that.

Every episode is available in Chinese if you look on Baidu or Youku. http://tv.cn...8fcb18eaaaae and http://www.s...er_search~10 are good links to start with. If these don't help, search "傻瓜猫" to find them.

TFO is airing ALL the episodes on a loop, and they're starting again with episode 1 this Friday. Great opportunity to record them all in HD.
