Ham-Hams Ahoy! (or known as, Ham-Hams and the Treasure Hunt!) (ハムちゃんずの宝さがし大作戦〜はむはー!すてきな海のなつやすみ〜) is a second OVA episode of the anime series, Hamtaro.


Upon finding Haibi, the Ham-hams help her find a treasure using her map and a song she got from her Grandma.

Through Maxwell, the Ham-hams are able to reach the Island that the treasure is located.

When arriving at the Docks, the gang are slip up due to Howdy distracting Dexter, Pashmina, and Penelope. However, through Jingle and Herbert, they are able to meet up with the rest of the gang.

On the boat, Hamtaro, Oxnard, Haibi, Boss, and Bijou fall off and into a random passing-by crate, getting split up from the rest of the already shortened gang. They however row back to shore. Upon doing so, a whale comes and destroys their crate and they are soon rescued by Sabu, Françoise and her friends and are flown to where they meet up with the rest of the gang.

Once meeting up with each other, they sail in a raft made by Panda to Seaham Island to which they go for a search for the treasure.

Once arriving, using Haibi's Map and her grandmothers song, they find a cave which leads to the treasures location. Oxnard however realizes that they are being followed, which no-one believes him so.

When reaching to where the treasure is, Hamtaro steps on a trap which catches him with Oxnard into a net. When Hamtaro realizes also that their being followed, he and Oxnard tell the rest of the gang to escape, which they tell them they won't as Ham's always stick together.

When realizing that it's Auntie Viv, Elder Ham, Haibi's Grandmother and friends, they all relax and find the treasure chest to find that it is...


They had all grown and filled the island with Sunflowers since they were left (89 Ham Years ago).

They then all celebrate and have a mid-summers party with the rest of the gang.
