Episode Summary

EDIT
Welcome Home Penelope!
AIRED:
Laura, Kana, Kylie and a couple of others are outside before school. Kylie wants to tell them something, but she's having a bit of trouble saying it. She finally blurts it out: it's "this boy." She likes him and wants to talk to him, but she doesn't even know his name. The girls all encourage her to go for it. Meanwhile, Penelope is out walking, probably to meet up with the other ham-hams. As she walks along, Jingle's pig, Herbert, goes rushing past. He knocks Penelope into some kind of gutter. Penelope is very upset. She tries to get out, but she seems to be trapped. She cries out, but it seems like no one is going to help her. Then, Herbert returns. He rescues her from the gutter. Penelope gets a ride on Hamtaro and seems to have made a new friend. Meanwhile, the gang is in a forest, talking with Jingle. As they talk, Herbert comes rushing in, with Penlope riding on him. Everybody notices how Penelope seems to have made friends with Herbert. Jingle, however, doesn't seem to be too fond of this idea. He tells everyone that he and Herbert are going on a journey. Penelope protests, but they leave anyway. Penelope seems very depressed. She tries to go after Herbert, but Pashmina stops her, telling her that she can't go. That evening, Kylie is at her house, trying to figure out what to do to talk to the boy she likes. She tells Penelope that she's lucky she doesn't have boys to worry about. She notices that Penelope seems to be depressed. She decides that she's going to make some cookies for this boy that she likes. The next day, the ham-hams are all at the clubhouse. But it's not long before they realize that Penelope's not there. Based on what Jingle told them yesterday, they head off in Jingle's direction, figuring that Penelope must be out to find Herbert. Meanwhile, Penelope, who is indeed searching for Herbert, finds herself lost in a forest. She cries and out Herbert hears her cries. He races to find her. Jingle tells her that that "passion" has "blended their roads as one." The other ham-hams soon arrive. They tell Penelope that she has to stop what she's doing. But Penelope won't listen. So they begin plotting ways to get her away from Herbert. Howdy comes up with a wild idea. He asks Oxnard if he can borrow one of his sunflower seeds. Oxnard nervously agrees, after Howdy promises that he's not going to eat. Howdy goes over to Penelope with the seed and tells her about how great it is. He says that there are more like it, but she can only have them if she comes back to the clubhouse. But this doesn't work. Not only that, but Howdy apparently ends up eating the seed, to Oxnard's shock. Then, Pashmina gets an idea. She starts heading off, making as if she's going to leave. The other ham-hams ask if she's really doing so and she tells them of course not. They just want to make Penelope think that. So they all motion as if they're going to leave. But their cover is blown when they hide behind a bush and end up falling and rolling out from behind it. Then, Hamtaro has the best, most sensible of idea of all. He goes up and talks to Penelope. He tells her that if she goes off with Herbert, then she won't be able to see Kylie again. Or any of them for that matter. She would be sad and so would all of them. Pashmina tells her that she's just not ready to travel yet. Seen in that light, Penelope decides to go back with the other ham-hams. Although she's still sad to see Herbert go, Jingle is sure that they'll run into each other again sometime. As for Kylie, she tries to present her cookies to the boy she likes. But at first when she tries approaching him while he's out running, she can't even bring up the nerve to talk to him. Then, once she does, she panics out and asks him for the time. That night, she ends up eating her cookies by herself, alone.moreless
