and T-Shirt arrive in the haunted land of V. Debbie thinks it strange
that T-Bag isn't following them. They hear a wolf howling and T-Shirt
wants to go back. She tells T-Shirt that he has been very brave up until
now and that she is proud of him, so he decides to stay. She asks him
to help her find the letter V and explains to him what it looks like.
Debbie decides to look in a large cave behind her. T-Shirt decides to
stay outside and look.
the cave, Debbie calls out to see if there is anyone about. A vampire
springs out from behind a rock and startles her. He asks her if she
wants to hang around for a bite, but Debbie decides that she would rather
not. The vampire goes on to explain that he is quite harmless because
he has had his fangs removed. He is now the friendliest vampire around.
asks him if he gets lonely in his big vault all by himself, but Vic
Vampire explains to her that the cave is full of friends. He calls out
to Valerie and Vivienne, two worms that do a little dance with a pumpkin
to some very unusual music. Debbie tells Vick that she is in a bit of
a hurry and asks if he has seen the letter. Vick tells her that maybe
his friend the wise old vulture could help her. He points the way further
into the cave.
T-Shirt is still searching for the golden V. He is just about to give
up, when he notices a stray arrow stuck into a tree. He pulls it out
and notices that the head is actually the golden letter V. He accidentally
drops it and then gets down on his hands and knees in a patch of flowers
to look for it.
finds the wise old Vulture (who is actually dozy as anything!). Debbie
explains that she wants to find some letters. The vulture thinks that
she said lettuce and goes into raptures about how he has become a vegetarian
vulture and can tell her everything she needs to know about vegetables.
He sings a song:

is still scrabbling about in the flowers, when he finds the letter.
He then smells the flowers and falls asleep. T-Bag appears nearby and
does a bit to camera about how she is certain that Vic would have drained
every last drop of blood from Debbie. She also is determined to get
the letters and T-Shirt back. She notices the cave and goes into it.
Vic leaps out and startles her. She then notices that he has no fangs
and realises that he is not scary. She demands to know if T-Shirt has
passed through the cave, but Vic says that he hasn't. She then goes
to leave, but Vic wants her to stay and chat. T-Bag says that she has
no time to waste on an old Gasbag like him, but Vic is insistant, so
she zaps him away and stomps out of the cave. She finds T-Shirt asleep
in the violets. She tries to wake him up, but then she hears Debbie
calling for him from within the cave. She hides in the bushes. Debbie
comes out of the cave with Vic and explains that she is after her friend.
hears this and turns herself into T-Shirt. The fake T-Shirt demands
that Debbie should show him the letters. Debbie obliges, but the phoney
t-Shirt makes a grab for them. Debbie snatches them away just in time.
He then shouts, "Curse you child!" and disappears. Debbie
tells Vic that he is acting very strangely. They then go looking for
him and find the real T-Shirt asleep in the violets. Vic realises that
he is under the spell of the sleeping violets for 100 years. He tells
her that only a kiss can break the spell. Debbie then kisses T-Shirt
on the cheek and the spell is broken. Debbie asks why he was being so
horrible, but he doesn't know what she is talking about. The other T-Shirt
than appears and Debbie realises what is going on. She can't tell them
apart, so she asks them what they think of T-Bag, thinking that T-Bag
won;t say anything nasty about herself because she is too vain, but
they both say that they think she is horrible. The real T-Shirt then
gives her the golden letter V, so Debbie then realises that T-Bag would
never have handed it over. T-Bag reassumes her true form and zaps T-Shirt
back to the T-Room. She then goes on to threaten Debbie, but Vic interrupts
and hands her over a big bunch of sleeping violets saying that they
are a gift for the lovely lady. T-Bag takes a big sniff and then starts
yawning her head off. She goes back to the T-Room.

end of T-Bag.
in the T-Square, T-Bag tries to tell T-Shirt that she needs a kiss,
but she falls asleep before she can get the words out.
tells Debbie to stop by again on her way back. Debbie sets off to get
the next letter.
the T-Square, T-Bag is fast asleep. T-Shirt starts mocking her and he
kisses her hand. This breaks the spell and she awakes, furious that
T-Shirt is mocking her.
