Episode Summary

EDIT
A Wonderful Santa Claus!
AIRED:
Laura and Kana are out shopping. Laura complains that Christmas shopping is "such a blur." Of course, her real dilemma is what to buy for Travis. She's worried that if she even buys him anything, he's going to think that she has a crush on him. (Because there's no way he could have any idea of that based on past experience. Not a chance.) Hamtaro is over at Elder Ham's house. He's shocked when Elder Ham tells him that Santa wants him to dress up as Santa Claus this year and deliver presents. Elder Ham tells him that Santa is busy - he wants to build a new sunroof to prepare for global warming. Hamtaro is reluctant about accepting the assignment. Elder Ham guilts him into it, asking him to imagine Christmas morning without any presents. He emphasizes the need for secrecy - that Hamtaro can't tell anyone what he's doing. The ham-hams are out and about. They find Hamtaro and wonder where he was. When they mention Christmas, he hastily answers that he doesn't know anything about Christmas, "honestly!" At the clubhouse, the ham-hams discuss what presents that they want. Pashmina speaks for Penelope, saying that she wants a new sunflower brooch. Cappy, of course, wants some new headgear. Boss claims that all he wants is love. Howdy cracks a wordplay joke using the homonyms "deer" and "dear." Then, there's speculation that Santa Claus may not show up at all. The ham-hams say that they wouldn't really mind if he didn't, just as long as they're together. Hamtaro gets mad, saying that they think that "Santa can't do it," but that he's coming and "that's that." Laura is continuing to work on her present for Travis. She's been cooking and is going to give him some lunch she made during the soccer game. She finds a four-leaf clover - good luck! Hamtaro returns to Elder Ham's, looking to make gifts for the ham-hams. But he doesn't think that he can do much with the junk in Elder Ham's closet. Laura and Kana arrive at the soccer game. Kana yells out "Hey, cutie!" and is embarrassed when Roberto thinks that he's talking to her. Laura presents Travis with the lunch she made. But Travis says that he can't eat it because the coach has already fed them and he doesn't want to eat too much. He encourages her to stay, though and cheer on the game. Laura drops her four-leaf clover in disappointment. Kana eats some of the pizza. She says that it's delicious and that Laura can make lunch for her any time. Laura groans. Bijou finds Hamtaro at Elder Ham's. She suspected that he was being a secret Santa Claus all along and offers to help him. Hamtaro reluctantly agrees and they work on presents. They manage to find the perfect presents for everyone. At Larua's house, Laura's Dad is excited about Christmas Eve. So he's surprised when Laura goes upstairs and goes straight to sleep. She's still upset about apparently being rejected by Travis. That night, Hamtaro and Bijou deliver the presents. They dress Brandy up with antlers and a red nose and employ his services as if he were Rudolph. As they deliver the presents, the ham-hams all sing an original Christmas song. Hamtaro and Bijou agree that they both had fun delivering the presents together. That night, Hamtaro delivers Laura a present, the four-leaf clover that Laura found earlier in the story. He speaks to her and Laura seems to understand. She wakes up and sees Hamtaro sleeping in his carrier. She's ready to dismiss it as a dream, but then she finds the four-leaf clover on her bed. She says that Hamtaro makes a good Santa. The next morning, Hamtaro finds a gift from Laura. He says that Santa managed to bring him something too and wonders how he did that. Laura's Mom presents Laura with a giant stuffed Hamtaro. Hamtaro likes it, but says that "nothing is cuter than the real thing." That night, Laura reflects on the "wonderful dream" that she had. She thinks it was a great day and that tomorrow will be even better. (Even though it was Christmas!)moreless
