Episode Summary

EDIT
It's Robin-Ham!
AIRED:
Kana and Laura are at the park and are having a bit of an argument. They're painting and Laura thinks that trees are a great thing to sketch, while Kana would rather sketch flowing water any day. The two decide to split up and each paint what they like, but not before some good-natured jesting about "forest ghosts." At the clubhouse, the boy ham-hams are playing "King of the Castle." However, they feel that Howdy isn't playing fair. Bijou suggests that they all knock it off, as she's trying to read a book, Robin Hood. Snoozer chimes in with a comment, leading the ham-hams to start talking about him and his dreams. Then, Bijou starts getting sleepy, followed by the rest of the ham-hams. At the park, Laura also seems to be spacing out. She is jolted when she thinks she hears something, but then quickly falls asleep. The ham-hams and Laura all go into a combined dream. In this dream, Laura is Maid Laurian and finds herself at home with her ailing father, who happens to be Elder Ham. They don't have a sprinkle of gold to their name and are in danger of going hungry. Hamtaro, who is Robin-Ham, comes by and notices their plight. Meanwhile, there's a crisis at the town castle. Prince Snoozer been sleeping non-stop and nothing can wake him upk. The situation's gotten so bad that palace guard Maxwell has brought in the chick-ah chick-ah ninja gang, consisting of Boss, Pashmina, Penlope and Stan to help protect the palace. However, the power of these ninjas is rather questionable. When they demonstrate their skills, they do tricks involving "jellybeans of doom" and knitting. Nobody is impressed and Bijou figures that they must be joking. Nevertheless, they're the only help the palace has, so they're put to work guarding the palace gates. Robin-Ham shows up at the palace gates with Brandy (who he's calling "Little Dog") but they won't let him in. Then, Howdy shows up, claiming to be a bean counter. While he tries to convince the ninjas to let him in, Robin-Ham sneaks into the palace. Howdy continues to try to convince the ninjas to let him in, finally managing to bribe them with some sunflower seeds. As Robin-Ham makes his way to the treasure room, Howdy reveals his true self: he's really "Howlin'" the Magician! The ninjas try to stop him with their "tricks," but Howlin's not impressed at all. He also reveals that he's the one who's been causing Snoozer's continuing slumber. Howlin' refuses to surrender to the chick-ah ninjas and attempts to place them all under a spell. Then, Robin-Ham shows up. He's immediately recognized, but says that he'll help against Howlin'. So Howlin' pulls out his ultimate magic, a super freezing spell. He has everyone under his power, but then Little Dog shows up. Robin-Ham manages to use his excellent aim to shoot down Howlin's magic wand. Without it, he's powerless. Robin-Ham has saved the day, but the hams at the palace still don't like that he's taken the gold. Prince Snoozer, however, who seems to be waking up, lets Robin-Ham keep the gold. He delivers it to Maid Laurian, who tells Elder Ham that it's enough for a feast. Elder Ham, not getting her meaning, tries to eat the gold itself. Afterwards, everyone reflects on how they got a glimpse into Laura's dreams. Well, all except Laura, who Kana finds as she's just waking up. That evening, Laura writes in her journal not once, but twice. She can't sleep because of her nap earlier. Neither can Hamtaro.moreless
