Shaotung "Tung" Choochu (小童蛐蛐) is the Magistrate's singing cricket and prized possesion. He screeches annoyingly, which enrages everybody— except for The Foolish Magistrate. According to him, he has the Voices of a Thousand Angels. Tai-Tai tried to set him free in a large field, but he snuck home again. The Magistrate adopted him, mistaking him for another cricket. This time, he said that he only has the Voices of Five-Hundred Angels. He lives in a small cricket cage, and seems to have a backwards shadow.
