Episode Summary

EDIT
A Fortune Comes True!
AIRED:
Fortune-telling - it's Kana's newest craze! She has some tarot cards and has gotten Laura into it and even her hamster Oxnard. Laura and Kana are both sporting new skirts. They're red and yellow - their lucky colors respectively as predicted by Kana. As they head outside for school, they meet up with a police officer who's walking by. He compliments them on the skirts and Laura doesn't recognize him at first, but Kana identifies him as the officer who gave a safety demonstration at their school a week ago. They talk to him about fortune-telling. Back inside the house, Oxnard talks with the hamsters about the fortune-telling. He's learned some things about it and it's not long before they're all clamoring for him to read their fortune. Well, the girls, that is. Boss thinks that the fortune-telling thing is just nonsense and he manages to get the guys on his side, at least for a while. Bijou, however, isn't with the rest of the ham-hams. She's out at the park, when she sees a kid tending to a rabbit. The kid seems to be taking care of the rabbit - however, instead of taking it with him, he just leaves it in the park. Bijou finally arrives at Laura's with the rest of the hamsters, where Boss quickly tries to convince her that the fortune-telling is just nonsense. Bijou, however, seems to be convinced, leading Hamtaro to suggest that maybe fortune-telling really is just "a girl thing." Then Howdy launches into this crazy comedy routine in which he claims he can tell fortunes. He takes on the apperance of some of crazy slickster or snake-oil salesman and claims that he can grant them all sorts of riches and tell wonderful fortunes and all sorts of stuff. Of course, the ham-hams are less than impressed by his crazy routine. Then, Boss is drawn into the whole fortune-telling thing, when Oxnard says that he's read his future. He's not going to tell him though, since after all, Boss doesn't believe in all of it and so it wouldn't really matter. Boss insists, so Oxnard finally relents. He reveals that Boss has drawn a bad card: the evil wizard. He predicts that the boss will have an encounter with something big, round and white. Boss is skeptical, but then Bijou talks about the rabbit that she saw at the park. It must be the thing that is big and round and white. The ham-hams all decide to go to the park. There, they're all searching around. Then, as predicted, Boss has his encounter. He gets squished underneath the rabbit. He's freed and the ham-hams all wonder what he's doing there. Then, the rabbit hops off. As it happens, Laura and Kana are passing by at that time. They're discussing the popularity that the fortune-telling seems to have brought Kana. Then, they see the rabbit. Noticing that it's wearing a red ribbon, they decide that it must be lost. They decide to take it the office of the police officer they talked with that morning. The police officer isn't really sure what to do with it, but promises to try to find its owner. This leads to a series of events in which Kana and Laura try to find the rabbit's owner using their fortune-telling. In the meantime, the ham-hams are the ones doing the real work. They head to the police station, where they see the rabbit. Seeing it in a cage, they think they must have been jailed, which leads to a series of funny lines about "most wanted lists" and the bunny being innocent. They decide to see if they can find the bunny's owner and lead it to the bunny. Laura and Kana are actually also doing some work. They go to a pet shop, where the store owner tells them about a boy who purchased a bunny a while back. However, he didn't quite have enough money, so he cut the kid a deal. The kid paid in cash, so he doesn't have his address. But he does know what elementary school he goes to and he gives Laura and Kana the information. The hamsters, back at the police station, hatch their plan by removing the bunny's ribbon. It's taken to the park, where the kid is there looking for the bunny. He sees the hamsters with the ribbon and follows them as they head towards the police station. Meanwhile, Laura and Kana are also heading to the police station, following a lead from the cards. Things come to a head at the police station, when the kid, Eric, runs into the rabbit, the ham-hams having released it from the cage. He greets it as Snowball. The situation is explained to the police officer - the kid wanted to have the bunny, but he lives in an apartment where pets aren't alone. He thought he could leave it in the forest and visit it to tend to it. But, as the police officer reminds him, if he does that, the bunny can run away and possibly get hurt. Then, the police officer makes a generous offer. He can take care of the bunny. He lives rather close to Eric's elementary school, so Eric should be able to stop by every day and see Snowball. Everyone seems to think this is a great arrangement. That night, Laura reflects on her good fortune. She feels she's lucky that she lives in a household where pets are allowed. She also mentions the fortune-telling - it was wrong about them not finding the rabbit's owner, but it did lead them in the right direction. She thinks that overall, it was a great day.moreless
