Title card.

Status: Partially Lost


Sagwa, The Chinese Siamese Cat was 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 3rd, 2001 to October 5th, 2002 for a total of 40 episodes (79 total segments). It followed the misadventures of Sagwa, her two siblings, and occasionally their friends as they went to various locations and learned more about their history, China's residents, and even themselves.

Despite the show's fairly short run, it was very successful and popular, winning four awards and generally getting good ratings on the network. Consequently, the show re-ran on most PBS affiliates lasting until 2009.

The show was re-broadcasted on TVO until 2013, and on the Knowledge network until 2014. In Canada Sagwa is currently being broadcasted in 2-episode sets on TFO at 9:30 am.

Availability

While the show was generally a success, only 24 segments were released on VHS/DVD, meaning that 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. The youtube channel "Canadian TV Broadcasts" had uploaded some of the episodes to youtube with original english audio.

Due to the show's popularity, however, many Youtubers have collectively uploaded nearly every episode online for people to view. A list of lost and found episodes can be viewed below.
