|“||They call me Jingle. I'm just a wondering Ham-poet.||”|
Jingle (トンガリくん) is a songwriting hamster. He is rarely seen without his guitar, and is usually seen playing music. Although he is officially part of the Ham-Ham Gang, he isn't present on most of their adventures; he ventures on his own to travel the world, joined by his pig Herbert. But he can give advice that pops out of nowhere and confuses the Ham-Hams.
Jingle is a music loving hamster and a self-proclaimed "Ham-poet". He is a very quiet and peaceful hamster. Although he is in the Ham-Ham Gang, he doesn't seem to go on their adventures but usually in the end of the episode he gives Hamtaro odd advice that usually confuses him. However, Jingle is not a member to appear in every episode.
He doesn't seem to have a special relationship with any hamster, either. He has a tendency to forget hamsters' names, namely Hamtaro, and calls him things like "Ham-n'-cheese," "Ham-n'-eggs," "Hambozo," and "Hamtaco". Though in one Japanese episode, Setting Off, Spring's Wind! he gets Hamtaro's name right. Hamtaro is, of course, very surprised.
