Episode Summary

EDIT
The Haunting
AIRED:
Laura's Dad, Mr. Haruna is going to his old friend Gabriel's mansion and taking Laura and Kana with him. Laura and Kana are bringing Hamtaro and Oxnard and, although the don't know it, the rest of the ham-ham gang is tagging along as well. Mr. Haruna's friend, Gabriel Black, is well known for his scary tricks he likes to play on people. When they arrive at his mansion, they knock at the door, but get no answer. They decide to go in, thinking that he might be out back. When they open the door, they see an apparition of a ghostly skeleton. They're all scared for a bit, but then Laura realizes that something is odd. She flips on a light and finds that Gabriel is controlling the strings of the "skeleton." Gabriel welcomes them all and they have a little meet-and-greet session in which Gabriel meets Hamtaro and Oxnard and also shows off some of the books that he's written. (He's a popular author.) Not long afterwards, Gabriel leaves, saying that he has to go get something to eat or something. Some time passes and Laura, Kana and Mr. Haruna start hearing noises. They decide that it's just dogs howling, but as time continues to pass, Mr. Haruna begins to wonder where Gabriel is. He goes out to search for them, leaving Laura and Kana by themselves in the mansion. (With the hamsters, of course!) Not long afterwards, Kana and Laura are in the kitchen, when a strange creature comes to the door. It's a werewolf! The girls, very scared, dart upstairs and hide underneath a bed. They take Hamtaro and Oxnard with them, but as they're going up the stairs, the two hamsters sneak out. Hamtaro decides that they have to save Kana and Laura. Boss agrees and so the hamsters "triple-team" to save them. Their plans involve pelting the werewolf with pepper and acorns. They also use an alarm clock as "time bomb," scaring the werewolf with its ringing. Howdy also mixes in some jokes, which, of course, go over like lead balloons. Eventually, the werewolf escapes from them and decides to head upstairs. But the Ham-Hams are ready and distract his attention to the stairway, where he slips on some acorns and takes a tumble. After falling, his true self is revealed: the werewolf is actually Gabriel! He was just playing a trick on them the entire time. Mr. Haruna arrives back and is scared to see the werewolf. However, he too soon finds out the truth. He came back when he saw that Gabriel's car was still in the driveway, which he found very odd. That evening, the group all has dinner together. Gabriel says that he would have scared everyone good, if he hadn't slid down the stairs. He says that he thinks he needs to take his book in a scarier direction. But then he seems to reconsider and takes a different direction entirely - fairies. The next day, Mr. Yoshi is out reading on the porch. Gabriel comes up behind him, dressed as a vampire. Seems maybe the fairy thing wasn't so true after all. Mr. Yoshi panics, while Laura, Kana and the ham-hams all laugh.moreless
