The Slipper Chase is the 18th episode of the series and the 18th episode of Season One.
Laura hurries to the spring concert play, Cinderella, but she forgets her second slipper and the Ham-Hams take it upon themselves to bring it to Laura before the play starts. Can they get the slipper to Laura in time?
When Laura is asked to perform the role of Cinderella in the school play, the nervous actress accidentally leaves one glass slipper at home. When Hamtaro discovers the lost slipper, he and his Ham-Ham friends set out to secretly deliver the slipper to the theater. They seek help from the wandering ham-poet, Jingle who is eager to help them find “the mythical pumpkin coach” where the play is in progress. With Jingle’s dreamy guidance, the hamsters meet a brood of unfriendly chickens and can only escape after their poetic leader accidentally frightens the chickens away. The Ham-Hams then secretly deliver the slipper before Laura’s entrance and enjoy the rest of the play.
Afterwards, Laura meets Hamtaro back at home and tells him all about her performance. She then tells him she thinks that maybe someone is watching over her. Hamtaro breaks into a quiet smile.
