Episode Summary

EDIT
Penelope Makes a Friend
AIRED:
The episode starts off with Laura, Kana, Kylie and Ethan, with the ham-hams Hamtaro, Oxnard, Pashmina and Penelope watching on. Ethan and Kylie are asking Laura about how she makes so many friends. Laura says that it's a secret that she can't reveal. Anyway, Ethan is new to the neighborhood and looking to make some friends. Kylie introduces him to her hamster, Penelope. She reminds him to treat him gently, as hamsters are real, live creatures. Ethan and Kylie seem to get along well and Ethan has a good time playing with Penelope. Inside Laura's, Ethan takes a nap. Penelope, however, goes up to him, still wanting to play with him. The other ham-hams can tell that Penelope likes Ethan a lot and suggest doing something to show the friendship. Hamtaro suggests throwing a party. Then, the rest of the ham-ham gang arrives, having just been tossed out of a play, "Ham"let. They were doing all right, until Maxwell jumped up on stage. They're told about Penelope's dilemma and come to the conclusion that it would be a good idea for Penelope to give Ethan a gift. So they go outside and together create a nice flower bouquet with a sunflower seed. However, when Penelope tries to give it to him, Ethan doesn't understand what she wants. What's worse is that Penelope is shy and so she has trouble getting his attention. She ends up making several attempts to give him the gift, but each one fails. Things get so bad that Maxwell suggests that according to Child Hamcology, if Penelope doesn't give Ethan the gift soon, she may never recover. As things are getting really bad, Howdy tries to lighten the mood with one of his jokes. But, as expected, that only serves to make things worse. Eventually, Ethan ends his visit at Laura's house and the ham-hams fear that Penelope may never to get to give him her gift. But then they hear that Ethan doesn't live too far away. So he should still be able to come and visit. The ham-hams decide to take decisive action. Since Ethan doesn't live far away, they'll got and find him. But this proves problematic because, not knowing exactly where he lives, they have to search house-to-house. Then, it's suggested that maybe they could just find his preschool and, by further luck, they find Laura, Kana and Kylie, who just happen to be heading there to check on Ethan. When they get there, they find Ethan: with a friend! Her name is Mimi (Mimi is Panda's owner.) and he refers to her as his best friend. Laura's happy that Ethan made a friend, but Penelope is very sad. She drops her flower present on the ground and the ham-hams all head off. Ethan turns around sees the flower on the ground. He says that Penelope was carrying a flower just like it the other day. He thinks she came to give it to him. Laura, Kana and Kylie think that Ethan must have an amazing imagination, but Ethan insists that it's true. Meanwhile, as they ham-hams are heading along, she sees the school's pet bunny. Communicating with the bunny and then with Pashmina, she expresses that the bunny wants a friend. The ham-hams all faint in aggrevation. That evening, Laura, while writing in her diary, says that the secret to making friends is to just be yourself.moreless
