Black Cat is the second (sixteenth on Fox Kids) episode from the animated series, The Magician. It was aired on June 18, 1999 on Fox Kids and also originally in 1997.


As Ace and Zina were working on their new "disappearing panther" trick, Lt. Vega comes to the Magic Express to capture Zina. Vega is accusing the true Zina of being Electro City's only loose black panther and attacking a scientist named Professor Sticks the night before. Ace recalls waking up during the night to see Zina return to his room but not knowing where she went. He goes with Vega to the crime scene and is surprised at Zina's behavior as she suddenly take off. Not knowing why, Vega takes Zina to the police headquarters for tests while Ace and Cosmo go visit a circus which seems to have a wild cat of its own.

There they meet their old friend, Yokiko the animal trainer who tells them that her pet black panther, Kim Cougar being kidnapped a few weeks earlier. Things get more complicated when Zina escapes the police headquarters when she was about to be put to sleep. Fortunately though, with Cosmo's tracking device, Ace, Cosmo, and Yokiko not only catch up with Zina but also found Kim Cougar about to attack another scientist named Professor Anderson. Although the professor is safe, Kim gets away and Yokiko can't understand why. Especially his failure to recognize her. With some video to help them, they learn Kim is under someone else's control. Ace and Cosmo visits the Milix Corporation to meet Maxim Milix and learn some important facts but are steered clear of one red door.

After learning the connection between both scientist and the Milix Corp., Ace and Cosmo return later that night with Vega, Zina, and Yokiko to find out what's behind that red door. Ace and Yokiko sneak into the building and with Magic Force, Ace opens the door. After overhearing Milix and Dr. Pax, the man controlling Kim they go into action when the two gentlemen's argument gets out of control.
