Episode Summary

EDIT
In Search of the Pendant
AIRED:
Laura's Mom and Dad are playing a game. The two start fighting when Laura's Mom starts winning and Dad claims that she's been staying up extra late practicing or something. Laura's Mom calls him a sore loser and the two start arguing it out. Laura comes downstairs, sleepy-eyed and sees the argument. Hamtaro's with her, in her shirt-pocket. He complains that Saturday mornings are normally a lot more fun. Laura's Dad and Laura decide to go out for the time being. Laura's Mom thinks this is a good idea, as they need some alone time. Laura's Dad wants to get Mom something to make up for the fight. Laura doesn't think this is such a good idea, as Mom doesn't really like surprises, but they end up going anyway. Meanwhile, Hamtaro spots Jingle, who says that he needs to reach a "new level." He's going to spend some time hanging out with the ham-hams, to do some "bonding." Hamtaro's glad that he's back. Laura and her Dad head to the mall, where they find a nice locket that they both agree Mom would think was really great. It's just perfect for a family portrait. They buy the locket and head out of the store. On their way out, two running kids bump into Laura. She's angry, but what she doesn't know at the time is that the locket fell out of the bag she was carrying. When she and her Dad arrive home, they're shocked to find out that it's gone. They deduce what happened, but can't really do anything, since the mall is closed. Hamtaro decides he has to get that locket back. He gets the ham-hams' help and they head for the mall. They run into Jingle and ask for his help. He says that he "doesn't really dig malls" and calls Hamtaro "Ham And Eggs." Nevertheless, he helps them out, even leading them into a way to get into the mall. He even turns the lights on for them, although they don't know it. Inside the mall, the ham-hams find a number of things they think are very dangerous. They get scared by a bunch of mannequins, which they think are real people. They also end up going the wrong way on an escalator, courtesy of Jingle, who's fooling around on the switches. They consider going home several times, but Hamtaro just has to find the locket. They end up in a toy store, where they perform a portion of the Hamtaro ending theme for a robotic greeter, who they think is one of many "mall wizards." In the end, however, it's Jingle who finds the locket. He doesn't realize it, however, so it's up to the ham-hams to get it from him. Back at Laura's, Laura hasn't been able to sleep. Laura's Dad hasn't eitehr, so he tells Laura the story of how he and her Mom first met. They were riding together on a bus and there was this old lady who needed a seat. They both called out at the same time that they would give her a seat. Then, they started arguing, until the bus driver told them that it didn't really matter, since at least one of them wanted this stop. It turned out they both wanted the same stop. Once they got off, Laura's Dad complimented the book that Laura's Mom was reading: "Searching for Happiness..." The two went to chat about it at a coffee shop and then married six months later. Laura's Dad says the only greater moment in is life was when she was born. We get to see Baby Laura: cute! When Laura wakes up the next morning, she finds the locket. She immediately wakes up Dad, who's there in the room, sleeping. She thinks that he found it, but he says he has no idea what happened. Meanwhile, Jingle heads on his way. He tells the ham-hams that he wanted to "bond," but he just can't. He's a traveler and has to keep traveling. Laura and her Dad present Mom with the locket and they receive something too: shirts that she knitted for them! The shirts are the reason why she's been up so late.moreless
