Episode Summary

EDIT
Stucky's Tunnel
AIRED:
Laura is excited, as her friend Claire, her best friend from her old neighborhood, is coming to visit. Laura's Mom, however, is a bit worried. Claire's just sort of showing up and she didn't say that she was coming or anything. She wonders if there's something wrong. But Laura figures that Claire just wanted to surprise her. As Laura leaves for the train station, Hamtaro leaves to meet his ham-ham pals. They were going to play today, but he was running a bit late. When he gets to meet them, he finds that they've already started the game. It's hide-and-seek, so they make him be "it." Hamtaro counts and has them all hide. Penelope tries to hide in Boss's place, but Boss sends her away, so she hides with Pashmina. But then Hamtaro tricks everyone! He gets them all out of hiding with the prospect of a sunflower seed. Dexter gripes that it takes the game to a whole new level. They can't all be it, so they decide to play "rock-paper-scissors." The only thing is, Cappy is still in hiding. He finally comes out. Today he's wearing a nice, leafy saucepan that blends in nicely with the background. They tell him to come out from underneath his cap so he can play "rock paper scissors." Then, all of a sudden, some sort of moving bush shows up. It runs around shouting "I'm ready" and everyone wonders what it is. Hamtaro wonders if it's "friend or foe." Laura meets her friend Claire at the train station. She immediately wonders where Claire's parents are. Claire tells her: they're not there! She's run away from home. The ham-hams finally reveal what's under the bush - it's a hamster! He calls himself "Stucky" and seems to be stuck in a plastic hamster tube. The ham-hams all try to free him, but can't seem to get him out. They decide that he seems to like being in it. Then he rolls away, saying that he's ready. He seems to still want to play hide-and-seek. They try asking him where he's from, but he's already gone. The ham-hams all agree that Stucky has a talent for hiding. This annoys Cappy, who feels that he's the best hider. He finds Stucky and challenges him to a hide-and-seek match, a showdown of sorts to see who the real genius is. At Laura's, Clarie explains why she ran away: she wanted to have a pet, like Laura, but her Mom wouldn't let her. Not a dog, not a hamster, nothing. She came to Laura because she knew that Laura would understand. Her Mom said that she didn't see how she could take care of a pet when she couldn't even keep her room clean. Laura looks around her room and notes that she's not the best at keeping hers tidy either. In the meantime, Cappy and Stucky are continuing their hide and seek game. Cappy suggests that Stucky just give up. The other ham-hams all go home, as their owners are expecting them. Finally, they both end up at the bottom of a hill. They talk with each other and Cappy learns that Stucky lives with a bunch of other hamsters. He doesn't get much attention and so that's why he hides. Cappy thinks it's kind of nice. He feels that if no one's watching over you all the time, then you can go on lots of adventures. At Laura's house, Laura's Mom says that she called Claire's parents. She says that her parents are worried about her. Claire gets irritated, saying that it's just an excuse and that the truth is she doesn't care about her. If she did, she would let her have a pet. That night, Stucky stays and sleeps at the clubhouse. He doesn't want to go home. The next day, Cappy and Stucky are at it again. But Cappy, looking for a hiding spot, ends up rolling down a hill and get stuck in a crevice. At Laura's, Claire gripes that her parents are saying their worried. She pets Hamtaro, enjoying his company and wishing she could have a pet like him. When she gets up for a minute, Oxnard comes to the window and tells Hamtaro that there's an emergency. Hamtaro leaves, to help everyone search for Cappy. Aid comes in the form of Stucky, whose rolling technique helps everyone to find Cappy. At Laura's, Claire thinks that she lost Hamtaro by leaving him on the couch. The ham-hams find Cappy, thanks to Stucky's help. They declare him to be part of the ham-ham gang. Then, Hamtaro realizes that he needs to be getting home, and fast. But he can't get back up the cliff. So Stucky helps out, by rolling him back up. At Laura's, Hamtaro manages to arrive back in without being spotted. Laura finally sees him and says that she missed him. Seeing this, Claire decides that she's going to go home after all. Hamtaro has made her realize that she's not responsible enough to take care of a pet yet. Maybe sometime in the future.moreless
