(Strip Number 575, Original Publication Date, 19 March 1984)
Panel 1: We start things off with a happy Lizzie telling Mommy that the hamster gots a ball he can run in.
Panel 2: Lizzie might be happy that, as she says, Michael is lettin'him go all over th'house but Elly is not as enthusiastic.
Panel 3: We find out why this is when Elly reacts to the fearful assortment of clattering noises coming from off camera by getting gobsmacked.
Panel 4: Michael comes up from downstairs and tells us that Humphrey has a little trouble with staircases.
Summary: I should say so, eh? It's a wonder that the fall didn't manage to kill the little fellow. Boy, they sure screwed up assigning Humphrey to these idiots, didn't they?
