Episode Summary

EDIT
Hamtaro is a Star! (a.k.a. Laura and the Seven Hamsters)
AIRED:
Laura and Hamtaro are watching TV when Glitter, with her hamster Sparkle, appear on the screen. They're going to be in a new movie. Laura thinks that it would be fun in a movie. One thing that she does know: she's totally wiped out. She falls asleep and Hamtaro do too. They both go into a combined dream sequence. In the dream sequence, Laura, Hamtaro and the main ham-ham gang are in the play. Maxwell introduces the play, with Laura as the star. Elder Ham is directing the play. As usual, he's sleeping. Howdy wakes him up to give some "profound words." He screams out a little and then goes back to sleep. Glitter and Sparkle are the villains of the film. Glitter is ruling over the kingdom of "Ham-Land." She declares that she's dissolved all the unions and Sparkle cackles that there will be no more challenges to their power. The ham-hams all sing the "we are going home together song." Then, they realize that Glitter doesn't like singing. So maybe they'd better stop. Elder Ham, meanwhile, is being a completely bossy director. He wants "more passion, more emotion." He thinks that the ham-hams are doing really badly at the scenes. In fact, everyone is. The ham-hams, however, think that their lines are bad. They're also shocked when Elder Ham tells them that they have to sing. That wasn't in their contracts! Oh... wait. It was. Howdy gripes that if he wanted to sing, he would have auditioned on Broadway. Hamtaro decides that he's not afraid of singing. He knows that the entire thing is a dream and so it'll go the way he wants it! Things get going with the plot. Glitter gives Laura an apple, saying that if she wants to be a great actress like her, she has to eat fruit. But when Laura eats the apple, it turns out that it's a poison apple and she falls into a deep sleep. The ham-hams all cry as they think she's dead. But then, the brave hero, Travis, appears and rescues her. So Glitter tries her ultimate gambit: she's going to stop time entirely! This is a terrible scene for the hams, as they have to stay still for two whole minutes. They fail a couple times, but finally resolve to get it right. The fictional play succeeds and the imaginary audience, which includes Kana and others, applaud. Elder Ham offers the ham-hams, Laura and Travis a role in his sequel: "Laura and the Seven Hamsters II." Hamtaro and Laura wake up. Hamtaro wonders why he dreamt up a musical. He thinks he must have had too many sunflower seeds. That night, Laura writes in her journal that she had a great dream. She thinks she'll have an even better one tonight.moreless
