The Little Bandits! is the 78th episode of the series and the 26th episode of Season Three.

Bijou, Sandy, Pashmina, and Penelope notice that there are not many female thieves in any stories they've heard before, so they and the other Ham-Hams come up with a story that involves a trio of female thieves known as "The Little Bandits."


One day at the library, Laura picks an enormous literature volume for her class book report assignment. Tackling the difficult sentences and small type, her eyes soon get heavy and she falls into a deep sleep. Her dreams take her to medieval Europe, where she meets the medieval Ham- Hams In the land of her dreams, Laura is a beautiful princess named Lauralina and Howdy is an evil French Ham Ham count named Count Jokester.

Count Jokester is always telling bad jokes that no one wants to listen to, so one day he sends Princess Lauralina a precious jewel called Sunflower Star and orders her to come to his court and eternally sit through and appreciate his bad jokes. But a sneaky band of masked girl Ham-Hams, the Little Bandits, steals the Sunflower Star! Luckily, Super Detective Hamtaro is on the scene, not only to attempt to daringly recapture the Sunflower Star but also to rescue princess Lauralina from Count Jokester!
