Sure, I have a little spare time on my hands, why?

You want me to help you build a video game hamster maze thing for YouTube?


Leah S., this is complete and total Kubbur overload.

darn ALMOST made the ************ - I know being ***** not as good a use of my time as building a hamster game but it is my goal.

[Stop it. http://www.squidgrid.com/cute/Glossary.htm#FP - Ed.]

Brill! Is there a version for Xbox? Or even better, Wii - then you can snorgle!

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 06:20 AM

I love how he completely ignored the moving things, even when they were poking him in the butt. And this video is exhibit A of why I always turn the sound off on my computer games. Obnoxious!

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 06:23 AM

Looks like there's a lot of shoving involved.

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 06:31 AM


I cannot. believe. I. watched. the WHOLE EFFING THING!! Phew! That was dangerous - thank god I made it through alr- *SPLODE*

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 06:35 AM

My brother and I used to build lego mazes for his hamster.. but she always managed to just climb out the top... :-P I love the part where it gets squished by the elevator ....hehehe

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 06:40 AM

the background music reminds me the great time i had with my old gameboy.......

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 06:51 AM

Wow, that was a trip! Someone really does have way too much time on their hands!

That part when one of the moving things in the way was zooming into his face, then away, and back again... Made me think of C.O. Extreme Close-up, but for the animal this time, not for us. Here's a close-up, and a close-up, and a close-up, and a close-up! Just watch it again and think that at that part and you'll start laughing.

Where the heck did they find a ham with racing stripes? :D

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 06:55 AM

Um, I don't think that's a hamster.

Looks like some exotic animal (or else a real fancy ham)

Awesome. And in case anyone's wondering: Icelandic.

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 07:28 AM

Wow. The music was something else. ^_^

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 07:31 AM

Chocolate Chipped: I'm pretty sure it's a real hamster. Similar to Seattle Roll's *Beef* --> http://flickr.com/photos/seattle_roll/2658027910/

Although, I could be wrong. I'm a cat expert, not a hammie.

Chocolate chipped, looks like a regular dwarf hamster to me.

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 07:42 AM

omg these people should win an award or something. too funny!

the elevator totally cracked me up. what a cute hammie! i want to dunk him in my milk and neeble neeble neeble and then snorgle heem and squeesh heem and call him george.

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 07:48 AM

Definitely redonkulous!

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 08:10 AM

One of my Winter White hamsters looks exactly like that!! His name is Mr. Pigglesworth. My other Winter White, Professor Pouch, is rather more rotund...

I wish they could play in this maze, it's great!

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 08:19 AM

I thought for a second that he was going to jump out and say "Oh the heck with this!"

Tenacious little scamp!

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 08:32 AM

The levels of redonk in this clip cannot be measured.

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 08:42 AM

High Score!

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 08:45 AM

I need to watch that again when I'm high. It's just moderately disturbing now.

Poooooor hampsty. :(

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 09:08 AM

The music and visual style is from Monty On The Run for the Commodore 64, just thought I'd mention.

OMG! Love! Hahahahah!

If you don't want to watch the whole thing, at least check out the Cleenin' Break HamMario takes at 01:49! :D

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 09:33 AM

Awesome!! Where can I play this game? :)

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 09:41 AM

I love 0:54, where it looks like he laid the house out flat so the ham wouldn't have to climb! :o)

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 10:29 AM

Yes, but does the hamster LEARN anything? Otherwise it has no value in terms of operant conditioning.

Oh, by the way, the score is now:

Japan 236
Iceland 1
US ?

I gotta build me a ferret-sized one of those!!

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 11:19 AM

ROFL! Some people have WAAAAAAY too much time on their hands....


 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 11:56 AM

I'm a little confused, did he get squished/eletrocuted at the end? ?? what happened??

Mary (the first)
 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 12:09 PM

I don't know why but the music reminded me of a british sci fi tv show I used to watch.

Way cute, and I loved the frantic cleaning at one point. Energetic little guy!

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 12:54 PM

Noelle -- if you mean Doctor Who (Tom Baker era, with the spacey analog-synth soundtrack), well, we're still watching. Only it's David Tennant now. He's every bit as hammy in his own way, I might add.

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 01:00 PM


 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 01:33 PM

mary1- he went to next level, derr ;)

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 02:18 PM

This reminds me of all those cheesy Atari games I used to play in the 80s...what a brill idea.

Theo: LOVE Doctor Who and David Tennant!!

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 03:47 PM

OMG so awesome! <3 the music.

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 04:15 PM

This must be Luigi. He seemed to have some difficulty on what I thought were pretty straight forward paths there.

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 04:16 PM

For some reason, my kittehs were disturbed by the music??? Isn't that wacky??

Gail (the first one)
 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 04:24 PM


No wait a minute, there aren't any flaming barrels......

Doo doo doodee doodee doooo!

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 04:32 PM

Thank you, Anonymous Nerd -- I have played that game back in the 80s... and couldn't recall the name. :)

It was a fab game!

 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 05:23 PM


 |  Jul 17, 2008 at 08:07 PM

Very funny. Laughed my head off - clunk.

 |  Jul 18, 2008 at 02:16 AM

So this is how Icelanders get through those loooooong winters....

 |  Jul 18, 2008 at 04:07 AM

omg it's Lemmiwinks!!!!!

 |  Jul 18, 2008 at 04:42 AM

I too loved the furious cleaning. The sound at the end was from that pinball game sometimes included with Windows. No idea if he was "electrocuted" or "squished".

 |  Jul 18, 2008 at 05:16 AM

My favourite bit is the handstand circa 1:41.

 |  Jul 18, 2008 at 05:50 AM

Theo..I was thinking of Doctor Who. I haven't gotten around to watching the new one, although I love David Tennant. However, Tom Baker will always be the best Dr. Who for me.
