Every Inchie Monday: Hamster

Hello Folks,

Well I find that at the moment, post surgery, I don't have the energy to make inchies.  I hope you don't mind if I drop by occasionally and contribute when I can.

I could not resist Hamster because when I was growing up there was a T V show on Canadian television (CBC) called Tales of the Riverbank all about Hammy Hamster and his friends, including GP the Guinea Pig, Martha Mouse, the Wise Old Frog, Turtle and Granny Rabbit.  These creatures were all played by real animals with their voices dubbed in by humans.  Here is Hammy in his car.

Originally done in 1959, there have been a number of revivals.   Not sure which version this is: you tube video of Hammy.  You really should try to watch this cult classic.

So I may only duck in once and a while.  And I may not be able to comment on all of your offerings, but I am looking at them and enjoying them.

(Here's a slightly larger version of Hammy s you can actually see the windshield of the white convertible with Hammy driving.  (I've been having trouble uploading the picture to the EIM site so it may have uploaded the larger version - sorry.)


  1. Pleased to see you Lia and hope you soon feel a lot better

    A great inchie as always

    Love Chrissie xx

  2. That is a funny hamster inchie. Hope you feel better soon.

  3. Nice that your inchie project should bring back such happy memories of younger days...Dixx

  4. I hope you start to feel better soon - it is horrid having no energy after an op. Just take it easy and do what you can but don't over do it. I used to love Hammy the Hamster too and your little inchie was a lovely memory for me. Look forward to seeing you from time to time when you feel up to it.
