Episode Summary

EDIT
The Precious Letter!
AIRED:
Mr. Haruna plans a business trip to their old town, and Laura hopes to reunite with her old friend, Melanie. Laura attempts to send Melanie a letter because she could not reach her by phone. The answering machine doesn't seem to be on and nobody picks up. As days go by, with no response to the letter and no still no success at reaching Melanie by phone, Laura begins to give up hope. She thinks that maybe after being apart for so long, Melanie doesn't remember her anymore. She remembers back when she left her old town, that Melanie promised to write her every day, or at least maybe other day. That sure didn't work out. Upset over Laura's being upset, Hamtaro decides it's time to take action. He decides that someone needs to get to the town that Melanie is in and get her that letter. It could have been lost in the mail. Just one question: who to do it? It's decided that Boss and Jingle will do it. As field hamsters, they're open. So Jingle takes Boss on a trip around the world, much to the disamusement of Boss, who just wants to get that letter to Melanie. During the journey, Jingle tries to impart wisdom to boss in the form of his 92 Rules of Self-Improvement to Make You a Better Ham. These Rules become a running gag throughout the episode, but only a few are actually heard. Despite Jingle's ridiculous journeying, they eventually arrive at the town to find that Melanie and her family are just returning from a vacation. The reason that Laura couldn't reach Melanie was because her Dad forgot to turn on the answering machine before they left. Melanie writes an excited response to Laura and asks her Dad to send it off. But when her Dad is on the way to work, some kids bump into him and he ends up losing the letter, unnoticed and thinks that he put it in the mailbox with his other mail. Boss grabs the letter and heads back home with Jingle. At the clubhouse, Hamtaro is discussing the bad situation regarding Laura and asking about when Boss will be back. Just as he's about to leave, Boss arrives. He gives Hamtaro Melanie's letter and charges him with the task of delivering it to Laura. Hamtaro heads to home, only to find that Laura is talking with her friend Kana. She's so upset about not getting a response from Melanie, that she's thinking of canceling her trip entirely. Hamtaro thinks this calls for drastic action. As Kana attempts to console Laura, Hamtaro tries to get the letter in the mailbox. But he can't reach it. So he finally finds a last-ditch method: he climbs up to the open window and drops the letter on the couch beside Laura. Laura soon turns around and sees the letter. She wonders how in the world it got there. Based on the letter, Laura realizes that her fears aren't true and decides to go through with her visit. She has a great time and brings Hamtaro along, at Melanie's request. Contemplating on the events at the end of the week, Laura says that she wonders how the letter got to her, given that it had no postmark. Hamtaro tells her to think outside the box, or rather, "outside the mailbox."moreless
