Ten-year-old Sakura Kinomoto opens a book in her father's library one day and gets the surprise of her life in Cardcaptor Sakura. The book contains the powerful Clow Cards, which scatter to the wind as soon as she opens the book. The Guardian of the Seal, a teddy-bearish creature called Kerberos, was sleeping on the job when the book was opened, but now he grants Sakura the position of Cardcaptor and accompanies her on a mission to retrieve each of the magical lost cards. If Sakura doesn't retrieve them all, the world will face destruction. The characters in Cardcaptor Sakura also appear in the anime Tsubasa Chronicle, which follows a completely different story that does not involve the Clow Cards. Cardcaptor Sakura also aired on the WB in a heavily edited version called Cardcaptors. This version removed nearly all romantic or affectionate subtext, especially between members of the same sex, and became a more action-oriented show aimed at boys. That version cut together scenes from various episodes and eliminated some all together, resulting in a total of 39 episodes rather than Cardcaptor Sakura's original 70.
