Episode Summary

EDIT
Doctor Lion
AIRED:
It's time for Brandy's annual shots. However, as Laura expected, Brandy is trying to hide because he doesn't want to go to the vet. She talks about the veterinarian, Doctor Lion and what a great veterinarian he is. Hamtaro is listening in and he thinks this "Doctor Lion" sounds scary. He fantasizes a vicious lion. He's rather scared when he hears Laura say that she's planning to take him in for a checkup as well. Nevertheless, both Brandy and Hamtaro both go to the vet. Kana and Maria are coming along too, bringing Oxnard and Bijou. When they get there, they find that Charlotte's there. Mr. Yoshi's tagged along too. Charlotte's there because she thinks that since she plans to be a veterinarian, watching Doctor Lion do his work will be good training. Doctor Lion gives a series of dogs their annual shots. Then, it comes time for Brandy. But Brandy runs off, scared. Doctor Lion, however, calms Brandy down with the antics of his assistant monkey, Pepe. While Pepe distracts Brandy, Doctor Lion gives Brandy his shots. It's over before Brandy even knows it. The ham-hams are all there watching on and they decide that Doctor Lion isn't as bad as they thought. It comes time for Hamtaro's checkup and at first he's scared, but it's over pretty quickly and Doctor Lion gives Hamtaro a clean bill of health. He examines Oxnard, who he thinks is getting a bit chubby and Bijou, who he thinks must have a lot of guys chasing after her. The ham-hams are all very impressed with Doctor Lion's intuition and decide that they want to do something to help him. That evening, they see him working late. They figure he must be very dedicated to his patients. They hear him complain about his clinic being a mess and decide to help clean up. However, they're not even really sure to begin and then end up being chased by a group of chicks. Boss is left at the clinic to see if maybe he can get anything done, but he ends up falling asleep and the ham-hams find him the next day. Things have been cleaned up, but it wasn't Boss's doing. Opportunity knocks again when Doctor Lion comes upon a sad looking dog just as he's leaving his clinic. He quickly rushes the dog into his clinic and discovers that it hasn't eaten for days. He diagnoses the dog as being sick for the kind of love only his owner can give and decides that the dog probably won't start eating again unless he can find its owner. Information comes in the form of Mimi, who recognizes the dog as "Johnny." She's seen the dog at the park before and knows who it belongs to. However, she doesn't know where the owner, Natalie, lives. Worse, she recently learned that the owner has been in the hospital and so that's why Johnny's been separated from her. The doctor decides to put up flyers in the hopes of finding the hospital that Natalie is staying at. The ham-hams see this as their opportunity. They take the flyers and blanket area hospitals and Laura/Kanas' school with them. Unfortunately, the flyers don't produce any results. Nobody seems to know anything about the girl and the missing dog. But, while at the last hospital, Boss overhears a nurse talking about a sketchbook that got left behind by Natalie. The ham-hams get the sketchbook to Doctor Lion, who recognizes Johnny in the sketches. Also depicted in the sketches is /Johnny's home. Doctor Lion, along with his assembled group of Mimi, Laura, Kana, Mr. Yoshi and Charlotte head to the house, where they find that the owner, Natalie, has chained herself to Johnny's leash. She doesn't want to leave the spot until Johnny returns. Then, Johnny comes bounding up to her and all is well. Doctor Lion thanks everyone for their help, but also says that he thinks that they may have had some "little helpers." The ham-hams wonder how he could know this. They start to head home, but in a comic ending are chased by the chicks again. That evening, Laura reflects on Doctor Lion's skills. She also wonders who the "little helpers" could be, which makes Hamtaro a bit nervous.moreless
