Hamtaro is at the clubhouse, taking part in a bit of a tea party. He leaves hurriedly, as he remembered that Laura's grandfather, the famous inventor, is coming over for a visit. He has to be there when he comes. Hamtaro arrives just as Laura's grandfather shows up and manages to make it up the drainpipe and into his cage in time. Grandpa, as usual, has some wacky gifts. For example, he gives Laura's Mom a scale that takes off five pounds - it calculates a person's weight and then subtracts five pounds from it! But the big deal is what he gives Laura - "Robo-Joe." Robo-Joe is talking electronic hamster who learns by imitation - he basically just copies what he sees other hamsters do. Laura calls him "incredible." Laura introduces Robo-Joe to Hamtaro, who remembers Laura's grandpa quite well. She leaves the two alone to "play." Hamtaro tries to help Robo-Joe up the stairs. But Robo-Joe can't seem to grasp how to climb them. Then, he goes completely haywire and heads outside. Hamtaro follows him and runs into the ham-ham gang. They came over because they were bored without Hamtaro. Hamtaro introduces them to Robo-Joe. They're pleased to meet him, but shocked when Howdy cracks a joke and Robo-Joe imitates him. Howdy thinks he's finally found someone who appreciates his humor. But the jokes on him when Robo-Joe mindlessly knocks him into a hole in the ground. Then, Robo-Joe goes crazy again, taking off towards parts unknown. The ham-hams decide to chase after him, but tell Hamtaro to stay home in case Laura gets worried about him. Inside, we learn that Grandpa has a locator-device for Robo-Joe, so that he track him, just in case something like this were to happen. Hamtaro decides to go after Robo-Joe, as he feels that the situation is his fault. The ham-hams chase after him. Two girls see Robo-Joe and wonder if he's some kind of wind-up toy. Hamtaro catches up to him and tries to stop him, but he takes off again. The ham-hams manage to corner Robo-Joe in a dark alley. They think they've got him, but he manages to elude their grasp once again. Then, the ham-hams are cornered in by a group of cats. They think that they're done for, but then Robo-Joe comes and scares the cats away by imitating Brandy's barking. Then, he shorts out and the ham-hams finally realize that he's a machine. They think he's done for, but then Grandpa and Laura come. Grandpa is able to repair him. He mimics Penelope's "Ookwee" sound and talks about heading home, which Laura and Grandpa find sort of odd. That night, Laura makes her usual comment about tomorrow being better than today. But Hamtaro's so tired, all he can do is groan.moreless
