Status: Partially Lost

Ketchup: Cats Who Cook (ケチャップ, 番茄酱) is an animated series co-production between NHK of Japan, Southern Star Entertainment of Australia, Shanghai Animation Film Studio and Shanghai Yilimie Animation Co of China. Each episode lasts approximately 5 minutes and there are 65 episodes in total.

The plot is roughly the story of Pickles, an apprentice chef, and his master chef, Goulash, who transform potential disasters into delicious food for their customers at Cafe Courgette, a bistro in the cat world.

The series was also shown in Japan, Australia, and China, but only the Japanese version has detailed information on each episode title and the period during which it aired. In Japan, the series aired from October 5th, 1998, to March 19th, 1999, and was re-aired until April 5th, 2006[1]. In Australia, it seems to have been aired on Nine Network and Network 10, but it is unclear when it started.


The English dub has been released on VHS by Just for Kids Home Video and has surfaced online, but it only contains up to episode 22 and no later episodes have been released or surfaced online. In addition, from June 12th, 2017, to March 9th, 2018, a YouTube channel called Puddle Jumper uploaded up to 20 episodes in high quality. In China, the show was released on two VCDs[2] instead of airing on TV, and only the first episode[3] and footage of episode 18[4][5] is available online. However, nothing has been released in Japan, and only the opening video of episode 48 is available online.

That opening video was probably recorded, and the uploader should be in possession of the full episode, but it is not expected to surface online.


Note: Episode numbers refer to the Japanese version.
