Heads-up comics fans, the hamster's in the house. Or is Hubert a guinea pig? Even he's not sure. But the house belongs to Abby, the bemusedly good-natured nurse he lives with, amuses, and annoys. When Hubert's not browning marshmallows over the toaster, or hatching a harebrained scheme with his turtle sidekick Turtle, he helps out down at the hospital, cheering up Mr. Gronkin, the resident curmudgeon, or Josh, the adventurous young amputee. Hubert, Abby, Turtle - who knows how such an unlikely family comes together. All we can do is thank creator Mel Henze that they have. The cartoon universe is richer for it.
