Franklin could count by twos and tie his shoes. He had a pet goldfish named Goldie and a best friend named Bear. But Bear wanted to have a pet too. And because they were best friends, Franklin wanted to help him.
Want to go for a bike ride?
Sorry, Franklin, I can't...
Guess what I'm doing?
Uh...eating a cookie?
You're close. I'm waiting for Beaver and Henry.
Henry? Her pet hamster?
Yep! Beaver's going away for the whole weekend and I'm going to baby-sit him for her!
You're going to baby-sit Henry?
Well, hamster-sit. But that's not the best part! My Mon and Dad said that if I take good care of Henry, they'll let me have a hamster too!
Wow! Just what you've always wanted, Bear!
Good morning, Hen... ...ry!
Oh look, Henry!
Your favourite! Nice juicy clover!
Want a cookie?
No, don't feed him that! Henry has his own cookies. Happy Hamster Snaps. They're filled with vitamins and minerals and come in four delicious flavours, but he doesn't like the orange ones.
He gets ONE of these a day. Got it ?
Yap! One a day and he doesn't like the orange ones.
Good. Now, let's show Henry
Isn't this great!
Look, guys! Henry already feels right at home. He's in his wheel!
That's great, Beaver. But does he really need all this stuff?
Well, I want to make sure he has everything he needs! Henry is a very special hamster you know.
Aren't you Chubby Cheeks?
Oh, yes you are!
What's so special about him?
That's not all! He even comes when you call his name!
Henry! C'mon Henry!
Let me try! Henry!
Okay, my turn! Here Chubby Cheeks!
He won't come when you call him that!
Henry! Gee, Henry is a
Very special. And I'm going to miss my little Chubby Cheeks.
It's okay, Beaver. I'll take good care of him.
I know you will, Bear.
Yeah! And I'll help!
Thanks guys. I'll see you on Sunday.
Bye, Beaver. See ya'.
It's okay, Henry. We're going to take good care of you. Right, Bear?
You bet! And then my parents will let me have a pet hamster for sure!
Gee, Henry! The weekend sure went fast. Beaver comes back tommorrow and you get to go home. And I get to have my own pet hamster. Hope he's as nice as you.
Hey! Stop! That tickles!
Sleep tight...Chubby Cheeks.
I'll get it! Good morning, Franklin. You must be here to help Bear with... ... the hamster!
Thanks, mom! Hi, Franklin!
What's the matter, Bear?
Whoa! What happened to your room?
Henry got out of his cage last night!
Wow! He makes all this mess?
No, I did! Looking for him. And I can't find him!
Beaver's coming home today. You've got to find him. HENR-!
Shhh...quiet Franklin. I don't want Mon and Dad to find out I've lost him.
That's okay. Just try to be more quiet. Come on. Let's check the other rooms.
We've searched the whole house. Where could he be?! And why doesn't he come when we call his name? He's lost for good.
I'll never get a hamster of my own now.
And you'll have to get a new one for Beaver.
Hey...that gives me an idea. What if we buy Beaver a new hamster before she gets here.
She's still going to be upset, Franklin.
But she won't know it's a new hamster... ...And neither will your parents.
Yeah... We'll just go to the pet shop and buy a new Henry. Okay, let's do it.
Good! You check your piggy bank and I'll check mine. We'll meet at the pet shop in half an hour!
I think we picked the perfect one, Bear. This hamster looks exactly like Henry!
Yeah, and he eats like him too.
I don't think Beaver will ever be able to tell the difference. Henry.
Henry! C'mon, Henry.
How fast can we teach him his new name?
Bear! Beaver's here!
Not that fast...
Maybe Beaver won't notice.
She'll notice, Bear. We just have to make sure she doesn't notice in front of your parents.
It was a very nice trip, but I couldn't wait to get back to see my...
There you are!
Were you a good boy?
Oh yeah, he was great.
No problem. Don't worry about his supplies. We'll bring them right over.
Wait, Franklin. I have to say 'thank you' to Bear.
Thanks, Bear. And I hope you get your own hamster. You deserve it.
C'mon, let's get you home, Henry!
This is the real Henry.
The real Henry? But...
Henry escaped last night. I guess I left his cage door open...
And when we couldn't find him, I talked Bear into buying that one.
Didn't you think I'd find out?!
I'm sorry, Beaver. Instead of trying to trick you, I should have told the truth.
I'll say! Well, I'm just glad to get my Henry back.
Guess I better take this guy back to the pet shop.
Bear. I'm glad you told Beaver the truth about what happened.
I am too. And I shouldn't have bought another hamster without permission...
There's only one real Henry.
And you did take good care of him.
I did, didn't I?
Yes. You've shown us how responsible you are so we've decided that you can have a pet hamster of your own.
Really?! This one!?
If you like.
Thanks, Dad! C'mon, Franklin!
Bear!... That's Henry's cage!
Huh? Oh yeah...
We'd better make a trip to the pet shop and buy your hamster his own home.
Do you want to come too?
I'll go get my wagon to help carry the food and supplies.
So, what are you going to call him, Bear?
Henry!...Henry the Second!
