heard of T-Bag?
Well let me give a brief introduction...
"T-Bag" series was a product of Thames Television (now
part of Fremantle Media) and ran from the early Eighties to the
early Nineties. It was written by Lee Pressman and Grant Cathro
(writers of Americanised burger sitcom "Spatz", "Mike
and Angelo" and various episodes of "The Tomorrow People").
The basic storyline in each series was that a power-crazed witch
(T-Bag) had taken up residence inside some object in a junk shop
belonging to a boy (Thomas) and his Grandad. She would oust whoever
else was living in the object and create a T-Room for herself. T-Bag
would then make her presence known by kidnapping Thomas (who was
thenceforth known as T-Shirt) and forcing him to be her servant
(or T-Caddy) to keep her magical powers strong by making endless
cups of tea from the leaves of her evil T-Plant.
the picture comes a sweet, innocent young girl who then happens
across the object in the shop and meets the character that has been
usurped by T-Bag. Invariably, that character knows how to banish
T-Bag (always involving a number of mystical artefacts that T Bag
has stolen and scattered about the place so as to avoid banishment).
The young girl then has to go and collect them all back up again
and restore them to their rightful place.
are some variations to this story, but the outcome is almost always
that T-Bag is destroyed in the end. That's the intro, now click

One last word before you go on - I have produced all of the images
and the content of this site myself and have spent many long hours
doing it, so if anyone out there is thinking of producing another
T-Bag Web page, please could you email
me and ask if you wish to use any images, sounds, etc. before
you use them? If you do, then I can supply a link to your site here,
The T. Room has produced a film of the
After YEARS of planning (I mean about two), the
T. Room is proud to announce that it has filmed the Retro Sketch with
the permission of Lee Pressman. The sketch features the return of Tallulah
Bag (played by the wonderful Norma Izon) and T. Shirt (played by the very
talented James Lawbuary) in a one-off encounter that leaves us believing
that T. Bag and T. Shirt are still out there trying to take over the world.
Check it out!
The sketch now has its own "making of"
section. You can find it here, or in "Behind
Teddington Studios has been demolished.
This is a terribly sad video, but necessary to
be included. It shows Teddington Studios (where T. Bag and many other
kids' TV shows such as Button Moon, Rainbow and The Sooty Show were filmed)
as a pile of rubble. It is filmed from the Thames side of the studios,
so Studio 3 would have been in the top right hand corner of the site.
