Episode Summary

EDIT
The Knitting Craze
AIRED:
The ham-hams are in a forest, playing a game of hide-and-seek. Hamtaro is "it," so he has to search for the other hams. He finishes his counting, even giving them a little time and then starts searching. He looks around some, considers things and then goes over and finds both Pashmina and Penelope hiding behind a bush. They're both surprised that he found them so quickly. Then, Boss yells out and comes out of his hiding place. The ham-hams scold him for interrupting the game. Boss calls out Hamtaro, saying that he must be cheating. There's no way he could have found Pashmina and Penelope so quickly! But Hamtaro gives him a perfectly good reason: Pashmina's pink scarf was sticking out. All he had to do was spot it and he found Pashmina. Boss considers this and decides that it's reasonable. He apologizes for saying Hamtaro cheated. Pashmina asks Penelope why he didn't tell her it was sticking out. But all Penelope can do is say "Ookwee!" It's suggested to Pashmina that she just take her scarf off for the rest of the game. But Pashmina says that the scarf is very important to her. It was knitted for her by her human, June and when she wears it, she feels like she's being hugged with love. The ham-hams don't understand at first, but then Elder Ham chimes in. They're surprised to see him. He shows them that he's wearing a scarf too and says that it was knitted for him by someone very special. When he's questioned on who this is, he says that he forgets. He notes to himself that he ought to start writing things down. The ham-hams all seem very interested in knitting now, so Pashmina tells them that she'll show them how. Later on, at Laura's, Hamtaro is very bored because Laura has caught onto the knitting craze. She's so busy knitting, that she doesn't pay any attention to Hamtaro. Hamtaro tries to get her attention, by unraveling some thread. But it turns out that the thread comes from a scarf that she was knitting. Laura scolds him and gets back to her work. She's not doing very well, so she decides to go to her Mom for advice. Her Mom gives her some great tips that cut her time in half. Meanwhile, Hamtaro continues to be very bored. He decides to go visit the clubhouse. Outside, he runs into Brandy. He talks with Brandy and Brandy sneezes. He wonders if Brandy might be catching a cold. At the clubhouse, Pashmina is instructing the female ham-hams in knitting. The guys, however, have apparently decided this is another "girl thing" and are off on their own trying to play a game of soccer. Hamtaro, however, decides to join in, as he's tired of just watching knitting. The scene switches for a bit to Laura and Kana, as the girls discuss the knitting craze. Laura's working on a scarf for Travis. She just hopes that now that knitting is popular at school, people don't come to her for advice, as she doesn't think she's very good at it. Back at the clubhouse, as the guys play their soccer game, Stan accidentally kicks the ball into a wall, causing it to bounce into Penelope's heard. Pashmina yells at them, telling them to take their game outside. Then, the guys, including Elder Ham try to convince Hamtaro to go outside and play soccer. They don't think his attempt at knitting a pair of pants for Laura is going too well. Hamtaro reveals that he's really just practicing so that he can make a scarf for someone special. When pressed, he tells them that it's Brandy. He's worried that Brandy is getting too cold and that's why he's sick. The ham-hams all agree that this is a great idea. And they all agree to help out. They visit Brandy to take measurements. To reinforce that Brandy is a helpful dog, the scene from "Boss, the Cool Ham of the Sea!" where Brandy rescues Bijou and Boss is shown. The ham-hams head back to the clubhouse to get started. There's a problem at first where they don't have enough yarn. But then, the male ham-ham gang that was playing soccer shows up and surprises everyone with a whole bunch of lime green yarn that they got from an old sweater. They decide that it's the perfect color and get to work. They do this song-and-dance routine about knitting the scarf and the male ham-hams all pretend that they're a train. They work in teams to complete the scarf. Back at Laura's, Laura's finally completed her scarf for Travis. Just as she's presenting it to her Mom, her Dad comes in. Seeing it, he thinks that it's an early Christmas present! He thanks Laura for it and calls her the best daughter ever. Laura starts to sputter, but her Mom cuts her off. Her Dad continues to gush and Laura has no choice but to let her Dad have it, even though it was really going to be for Travis. Then, the ham-hams present their scarf to Brandy. They ask him what he thinks and he seems to approve. That night, Laura reflects on how she didn't have it in her to tell her Dad that the scarf was really going to be for Travis. She also presents Hamtaro with something she knitted for him: a hat! Hamtaro tries it on, but it's a bit too big. So he ends up wearing it around his waist instead.moreless
