Episode Summary

EDIT
The Abominable Snow Woman
AIRED:
Laura and Kana are at an ice skating rink. It's kind of a remote location, but Laura likes that because she's not very good at ice-skating yet. The ham-hams are there too, although Laura doesn't know that, not even about Hamtaro being there. They're sort of sliding around the ice having a good time. Laura falls. Mr. Yoshi sees Laura's attempts at ice skating. He offers to teach her how to skate. He says that all she has to do is watch her. Since they're close by his Mom, he suggests coming to her house when they're done. She can tell them another of her ghost stories. When they suggest that she doesn't have to do that because it might be too much trouble, Mr. Yoshi acts like some kind of scary vampire or something and says that it's her favorite pasttime. So they go to Mr. Yoshi's Mom's house. The ham-hams follow too, but they trail behind because it's a snowy path and they're not sure exactly where they're going. At the house, Mr. Yoshi's Mom tells them a scary tale about an abominable snow woman, who, if you see her, she turns you to ice. Laura and Kana are very scared by this, but try to act like they don't believe it. Mr. Yoshi's Mom tells them that if they see her, they're not suppose to say anything because if you say her name out loud, she'll hunt you down. The ham-hams arrive just as Laura and Kana are about to leave. They're disappointed that they missed the story, but they overhear some of the details. Sandy says that she likes ghost stories, as long as they have a plot and aren't just scary and stupid. Mr. Yoshi suggests that he help the girls on the home. He doesn't want them lost in the forest again, like what happened in the "Ghost Mountain!" episode. So they head off. But it starts to snow. Not only that, but Mr. Yoshi has a terrible sense of direction and gets them lost. The ham-hams try to follow along, but then they get lost too. They don't know if the girls and Mr. Yoshi decided to walk down the hill or take the bus. Meanwhile, the girls decide that they should stop walking and try to find the nearest bus stop. But then, they see something that they think is the abominable snow-woman. They panic and run away, losing Mr. Yoshi. The ham-hams too are becoming fearful of the snow-woman. Then, they see a strange figure who they think is it. But it turns out to just be Auntie Viv! It's the first snow of the season and she's out doing some snow boarding. She explains this and then leaves, with the ham-hams still lost. Boss gripes that if they're not home soon, she should come and look for them with a blowtorch. As the ham-hams continue along, they see Mr. Yoshi, bumbling through the snow. They all think that he's the snow-woman and stop talking because they're afraid that if they say anything, they'll be turned to ice. Hamtaro, however, doesn't see him and wonders what the fuss is. Then, he finally realizes it. They make a daring escape. Boss uses a tree leaf as a tobaggon. But there's no brakes, so they end up flying through the air. Auntie Viv sees this and comments on their nice hangtime. Meanwhile, Laura and Kana have found an old, abandoned school building. They find a candle and take refuge within, hoping to wait it out until the snowstorm calms down. The ham-hams land intact from their fall. They land near the school building. Hamtaro wants to go inside, as he needs to warn Laura and Kana somehow about the snow-woman. Then, another ghostly figure approaches. Eventually, the confusion is all sorted out. It turns out the second figure is actually Mr. Yoshi's Mom. She came out searching for everyone because she was afraid they might be lost in the storm. She chides Mr. Yoshi for his poor sense of direction. Mr. Yoshi tells her that she should save her ghost stories for amateur theater. Mrs. Yoshi can't believe that the girls actually believed her story.moreless
