Episode Summary

EDIT
Roberto's Ally
AIRED:
There's a soccer game at Laura's school. As usual, Roberto is being a big star. But his being a big star is at the expense of the team. The ham-hams are watching and Boss and Dexter note that Roberto has improved his skills, thanks to all his practice. On the field, Travis calls for Roberto to pass the ball, but Roberto won't. Roberto is called out and told that he needs to pass the ball more often. Laura calls out that no one should care. They don't need him anyway. Roberto gets mad and says that he's quitting the team. He leaves. The team members are worried, as Roberto may be a ball hog, but he's also their main offensive player and they have some big games coming. The ham-hams too are playing soccer. And, like Roberto, Boss is becoming a ball-hog. The ham-hams tell him this and Boss says that he understands how Roberto feels: that it's "lonely being at the top." This aside, the ham-hams agree that they have to do something to get Roberto back on the team. Meanwhile, sometime that day, as Roberto walks along, practicing with his soccer ball and complaining to himself, he accidentally kicks the ball into Brandy, who's temporarily tied to a post while Laura's Mom does some shopping. Roberto apologizes to Brandy and spends some time petting him and paying attention to him. But when Laura's Mom comes out and sees him, he runs away. Laura gets home and complains about Roberto throwing his "prima donna hissy fit." Her Mom tells her that Hamtaro is out of sunflower seeds and she forgot to buy some. Hamtaro is panicked for a minute, but Laura says that she can go get some. She takes Hamtaro with her. She goes to a shop named "Cat & Dog Pet Shop." As she leaves, she sees Roberto. She wants to talk to him about joining the team again, but she's afraid she'll start a fight. She tries talking to him, but it's eactly like she expected: they end up fighting and nothing gets accomplished. Roberto comes across Brandy again. Brandy is pleased to see him and greets him warmly. Laura's Mom says that she recognizes him as Roberto. She knows his parents and wonders if he could take Brandy for a walk. Roberto does so happily. That evening, Laura's Mom tries to tell Laura about Roberto. But Laura isn't really paying attention and interrupts to ask a question about some popcorn balls. The next day, the ham-hams decide to do something about Roberto. They set up a play in which they get Roberto's soccer ball away from him. Then, they all kick it in the direction of where the soccer game is being held. Roberto follows. At Laura's house, Laura's Mom sees that Laura forgot to take her thermos to the game. She leaves to take it and takes Brandy with her. Roberto arrives at the park, where he watches the soccer game. He looks like maybe he wants to join in again, but his pride is still interfering. Then, Laura's Mom comes with Brandy. Brandy sees Roberto and runs over to him and pounces, licking him excitedly. It creates quite a scene and Travis sees Roberto. He asks Roberto to join them again and apologizes for getting mad at him. The ham-hams all think this great, but wonder how Brandy and Roberto became such good friends. Roberto joins in again and plays the rest of the day. He scores some great goals and also passes the ball and plays with the team.moreless
