Episode Summary

EDIT
Auntie Viv and Elder Ham
AIRED:
It's another beautiful day, when the cherry blossoms are out in bloom. Laura and her Mom are preparing a nice picnic. They want Dad to come, but he ditches out, saying that he has to go to work. This disappoints Laura and her Mom, who were really looking forward to him coming. Now they're going to end up having leftovers. Fortunately, Kana and her Mom are joining them. But Kana's Dad won't be there either. Hamtaro laments that the Moms and daughters must be angry that the Dads aren't into flowers. Laura takes Brandy along, but Hamtaro's not coming, at least not officially. Unofficially, he is coming and so is Oxnard. Hamtaro tells Brandy that he'll meet him there, but to not tell Laura. At the park, the other ham-hams are waiting for Hamtaro and Oxnard. They're a bit anxious and want to get going and see the cherry blossoms. They decide to wait for Hamtaro and Oxnard anyway and so finally they show up. In the meantime, Auntie Viv is heading their way too. She's carrying a big load of sunflower seeds, which she sets down while she goes over to greet them. Hamtaro asks if she's there to watch the cherry blossoms too. She says that she wouldn't miss it for the world. First, though, she wants to go back and get the sunflower seeds to share with the ham-hams. While she's talking to the ham-hams, Elder Ham comes along the sunflower seeds. Since they're just sitting there in the open, he helps himself to them. Auntie Viv is shocked when she returns and finds that the seeds are gone. She asks Elder Ham if he ate the seeds and he at first non-answers that she looks great. Finally, she forces out of him that he ate the seeds. The two get in a big fight. Boss tells Auntie Viv to calm down, but she snaps back for him to calm down. Elder Ham finally issues an ultimatum - he's never talking to her again! In the meantime, the girls and the mothers are wishing their Dads could have come to see the cherry blossoms. Kana's Mom says that it's their loss, so they shouldn't be worrying about. She decides that it's best if they just don't talk about them. The ham-hams suggest to Elder Ham that he should apologize to Auntie Viv. Elder Ham just snaps that Auntie Viv should apologize to him. He lets on that the conflict is really about more than just sunflower seeds. He and Auntie Viv used to be "an item." But soemthing happened between them, a long time ago, on a day similar to today when the cherry blossoms were falling. It had to do with Elder Ham's annoying habit of falling asleep. After Elder Ham leaves, Pashmina has a great idea. Howdy seems to tune into it too: the ham-hams should hook them up! Boss finds the whole thing to be "very sneaky" and says that he likes it. So the ham-hams split up to get Auntie Viv and Elder Ham. They find Auntie Viv painting by the river. As the ham-hams are in the process of completing the hookup, Laura and Kanas' Dads arrive at the park. They've just gotten off work and realized that they should have come sooner. The ham-hams finally get Auntie Viv and Elder Ham together. At first, they're hostile, but then the cherry blossoms carry them back to their memories of better times. Elder Ham takes responsibility for his stubbornness and Auntie Viv decides to be forgiving. With the Dads at the park, Laura and Kana perform the "You've Got Friends" song and the ham-hams join in. A crowd gathers to watch Laura and Kanas' performance. That evening, Laura calls it a "fantastic day."moreless
