and the Gardener arrive outside a large pair of gates shaped like the
letter B. They head towards them, but a guard appears. They are both
the T-Room, T-Bag is chortling because she believes that they will never
get past her magical guard. This is the first time that we see T-Shirt,
addresses the guard, but he doesn't move or respond in any way. The
Gardener tries knocking on his head, but there is no response. He decides
the guard must be a statue.
brings the Guard to life through her saucer.
Gardener starts laughing because he can't believe that they were so
scared of a statue. The guard then shouts "Boo" at him and
he is terrified again. T-Bag then appears and explains that they will
never pass her guard and orders the guard not to let them pass. She
guard tells Debbie and the Gardener that they will never pass because
he has been standing there for 400 years and not let anyone through.
He tells them that he will only let them pass if they can guess his
name. Debbie decides that it must begin with the letter B, and starts
reeling off names beginning with B. The guard laughs at her feeble attempts,
and tells them that they will never pass. Debbie has a brainwave and
whispers to the Gardener, they then head back through the tree to the
first square to get something. The guard gets out a comic book and starts
looking at it.

and is furious when she sees the guard looking at the comics.

that the guard is wearing braces and is angry because she didn't issue
him with them. The guard explains that he needs them because his bloomers
have got too big and baggy.
starts looking at the comic and asks T-Bag what the funny squiggly patterns
are (the words). T-Bag tells him that they don't concern him and takes
the comic off him. She conjurs up a bin and puts the comic in it. T-Shirt
takes it out whilst she isn't looking and then T-Bag magics the bin
away. She then tells him to take them back to the T-Room to prove that
he has made progress with his magic lessons. He tries, but nothing happens,
so T-Bag goes into a long tirade. about how he can never get anything
right. Whist she is whinging, T-Shirt tries again, but only succeeds
in transporting her top half. Then he brings it back and gets rid of
her bottom half. He brings that back and then T-Bag takes them back
to the T-Square.
and the gardenr come back through the tree blowing party whistles and
holding a cake. They tell the guard that it is his birthday, and that
makes him really happy. The guard wants them to play a game, so Debbie
decides on I-Spy and spies something beginning with B. The Gardener
and the Guard don't understand how to play it because they don't know
what letters are. Debbie explains the rules of the game and then they
try to guess. It turns out to be "Boots". Debbie then starts
singing happy birthday to him and the guard joins in. He lets it slip
that his name is Balthazzar during the song.
the song, Debbie asks if they can pass, but theBalthazzar tells them
that they can't because they haven't guessed his name. Debbie tells
him what his name is and the guard is amazed. Debbie tells him that
a little bird wearing braces told her and Balthazzar twigs that he has
been tricked. He is really upset because it isn't his birthday at all.
Balthazzar then refuses to let them pass unless they can entertain him.
He tells Debbie to dance for him. Debbie can't dance, however. The Gardener
sees a clump of flute grass growing nearby, so he cuts a blade and plays
beautiful music through it. When he starts playing, Debbie starts dancing
beautifully. Balthazzar is thrilled and tells her to dance again.

blocks up the flute grass. Debbie's dancing comes to an abrupt end when
the music stops.
then gets out a little bag with her treasure in it. She tips it onto
the table. It turns out to be three golden letter T's. She explains
that she couldn't live without them as they are her pride and joy. T-Shirt,
meanwhile, wants to see Debbie dancing some more, so he unblocks the

demands that Debbie dances or he will not allow her to pass. Debbie
pleads with him, but he turns his back on her. Debbie notices that he
has the letter B on the back of his braces. The Gardener grabs Balthazzar's
scimitar and cuts his braces. Debbie grabs the B as Balthazzar's trousers
fall down. The Gardener taunts Balthazaar, and Balthazzar goes to chase
him, but falls over his trousers. The Gardener yells at Debbie to run,
but Debbie says that she won't leave without him. The Gardener tells
her to go as there will be others to help her, so she goes.
