Plot Summary

Laura tells Hamtaro about his mother, Just in time for his birthday, Hamtaro sets out with Boss and Oxnard to visit his mother to see if what Laura said is true, while the other Ham-Hams set up a surprise birthday party for him. 

Note: When this episode was aired in America, the entire adventure was edited out, showing only the beginning where the Ham-Hams were telling everyone to keep Hamtaro's birthday a secret and the ending where all the Ham-Hams are singing for Hamtaro's birthday. This was because ShoPro decided that the OVA was too deep for children. It was also aired with the second OVA Ham-Hams Ahoy! 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〜, Tottoko Hamutaro: Hamuchanzu no Takara Sagashi Daisaku Hamuha! Sutekina Umi Nonatsuyasumi)
