Episode Summary

EDIT
The Flying Ham-Hams!
AIRED:
Panda finds a picture of a flying ham-ham in a secret place in his attic. It's apparently a friend of one of Panda's great-great-great... grandfathers. It inspires him with the idea that maybe ham-hams can fly. In the Laura subplot, her class is participating in the annual school gardening contest. Laura is initially disappointed when she's picked to be the person to design her class's garden. She feels the job should have gone to someone who actually wanted it. Panda works with the ham-ham girls and Hamtaro to put the flying plan into action. The male ham-hams, however, are very skeptical. They don't think hamsters will ever fly and so while Hamtaro makes his attempts, they just laugh and have snacks. After some initial failures, Hamtaro comes up with a revised plan. He decides to try using feathers and also manages to talk the male ham-hams into giving flying a try. He does so by explaining the possible benefits: quick escape from an attacking animal, or fast transportation, which appeals to Stan: as he can see lots of female hamsters in one day. Hamtaro also draws a picture of the flying ham-ham in the dirt. As Laura walks by, she's inspired by the picture. She now knows what she's going to do for the garden design. Continuing in the ham-ham plotline, Panda finds a scroll which shows that the flying hamster used balloons to fly. Meanwhile, Laura proposes her design idea to her class. The class is skeptical at first, but her teacher loves it. He thinks it's unique and is sure to win first prize. The ham-hams, working to put their flying plan in action, decide to head into town to find balloons. It just so happens that there's a store that's giving out free balloons. The ham-hams, however, must first face a toy monkey, who they believe to be real. When the toy monkey goes wild, the balloons fly off and the ham-hams chase after them. Hamtaro chases them up a tree and realizes that this is the ticket to flying. He invites everyone to hop on board and, after some initial suspicion, everyone does and enjoys the view from above. They fly over Laura's school, where they get a birds-eye view of the garden design. Laura's flying hamster design won first-prize. Jingle, playing his guitar below, comes up with a rhyme about the flying hamsters. That evening, Laura's writing in her diary. She comments that her design won first-prize and she wishes Hamtaro could have seen. Hamtaro says to himself that he did see it, in fact, he got the best view of all.moreless
