What are your thoughts on the Hamtaro series of games and television shows? Do you love it? Hate it? Why?

All I remember was the intro, and that was pretty sweet.

I was just thinking about Hamtaro yesterday... weird.

I remember watching this show a lot in middle school. I used to record it (on a VHS!) and watch it during my lunch break. I remember really liking it and I think it was probably one of the first anime series I had seen (some others being Pokemon, DBZ and what ever else YTV would air).

I remember not liking the TV show when it was on Toonami years ago.

I remember avoiding it because it was too cutesy for my tastes. Other than that, I have no opinion on it.

I watched it a couple times, I have no opinion on it cuz it passed the time away and I honestly don't remember anything at all about the show now.

I vaguely remember the intro, though I don't think I ever saw an episode. It used to air after Pokemon or some other thing I watched. Something about little hamsters and big adventures right?

I watched a little bit of the anime and I thought it was charming.

@dungbootle: eff yeah, that game is rad. I haven't thought about it in years! My sister owned the game, but I ended up playing through pretty much the whole thing. Good times.

You know...This must be the first time I've even seen the word Hamtaro mentioned in over a decade =/

Haha, exact same situation as me. It was her game, but I ended up hogging it.

Ham Ham Games was a really good game that desperately needed multiplayer.

As a child, I hated it.

I like Hamtaro! It's funnier and more self-aware than I would expect from a cutesy show like this.

I made a video that was taken down from youtube that was the intro to Hamtaro set to "Everyday I'm Hustling" by Rick Ross the Boss. I thought it was fucking hilarious.

Everything is too god damn cute in that show. I always thought the head on profile and the side profile of the hamsters looked off. At the side they loose a lot of features and look like the letter P.

The first thing I think of when I think of how people have to translate anime from Japanese to English is Hamtaro. The girls name is Laura, LAURA. Japanese people aren't named Laura. Also that hick hamster having a country accent when in japan he probably had a Kansai accent.

Those are my thoughts on Hamtaro
