is a Hamsterball
fanfic authored by MrZanyToTheMax
(which is MrMenCentral
's username on Fanfiction.net
). The series takes place in the fictional town of Rodentia
The characters include:
- Hammy Fink - A hamster who can be quite competitive. His favorite activity is racing.
- Rachel "Ranger" Fink - Hammy's cousin who is pretty much only known by her nickname. She is fluent in Mock Swedish, but only knows a little Mock Korean.
- Peepums Fink - Ranger Fink's sister and Hammy's other cousin. She is quite playful.
- Mr. Benjamin Raptis - A Bunsen Honeydew-like character who works at Hamster Labs. He is usually called "Professor" by the other characters.
- OddBall Gilligan - An odd hamster who can walk up walls. Possibly created by putting the Odd Race and Gilligan (from Gilligan's Island) in a blender.
- Alicia Lily Aska - A giant hamsternote from Alaska. She is Mr. Raptis' assistant at Hamster Labs.
List of episodes:
- The Beginning: An episode about how (according to Rodentians) the game of Hamsterball was created.
- Get Fink: A Get Smart parody starring Ranger Fink.
The HamsterBall Show! contains examples of:
- Accidental Misnaming: How Ranger Fink got her nickname.
- All There in the Manual: In the author's comment for the character list, he mentions that Ranger Fink, Peepums, Mr. Raptis, and Squeaks the Mousetrap have names from Hamsterball's default high score table.
- Always Identical Twins: Lily and Lexi la Meeshwa.
- Arc Number: 26, as is the case with nearly all the author's work. It appears in "The Beginning". A 99 has yet to appear in the show.
- As Long as It Sounds Foreign: Carla Cakenpresser, a Swedish Chef parody, speaks Mock Swedish. Ranger Fink does too (but she mainly speaks English), and OddBall apparently knows Mock Korean.

- Everyone Calls Him Barkeep: Mr. Raptis is usually called "Professor" by the other characters.

- Gravity Screw: OddBall can walk up walls.
- I Can't Hear You: The Hamsterball of Silence, a parody of Get Smart's Cone of Silence.
- Inflationary Dialogue: Well, the "Get Fink" episode is a Get Smart parody.
I happen to be an expert on escaping from these traps. Why, I've learned all kinds of escapes from watching four straight hours of MythBusters
! Would you believe it? Four hours of MythBusters
! Bonk the Hammer:
I find that hard to believe. Ranger Fink:
Would you believe three hours of Gilligan's Island
I don't think so. Ranger Fink:
How about half an hour of Odd Squad
