episode starts with a prologue. Sir Paisley Shirt and Kit Bag (famous
explorer ancestors of T-Shirt and T-Bag) are in the jungle searching
for the legendary Lost Temple of Montezuma. Once they find it, Sir.
Paisley tries to open the temple door, but triggers a trap and Kit
saves him. Kit opens the temple successfully and then she goes in
to explore and see if she can find the legendary lost Sunstones of
Motezuma. There is a blood curdling scream and she is not heard from
in the present day, T-Bag is reading from Sir Paisley's journal to
T-Shirt in a flying cup and saucer which is the new T-Room. They try
to find from the journal whether Kit escaped from the temple, but
they find that Sir. Paisley had left before she escaped - if she ever
asks T-Bag what the stones were, and T-Bag tells him that he will
soon find out because they are hovering over the very same part of
the jungle. They leave to find the temple.
the jungle, T-Shirt hears somebody approaching. It turns out to be
an archaeologist, Diggory and his daughter, Penny Hunt. T-Bag approaches
them and tells them that they are lost and let on that they are after
the temple. Diggory reveals that he is after it aswell. He is a very
forgetful person. He takes out a map of where the temple is and they
set off to find it after agreeing to let T-Bag and T-Shirt tag along.
they reach the temple, T-Bag asks him to leave her the map on his
way back through the jungle after leading them there, but Penny stops
him just as he is about to hand it over and reminds him that they
need the map to study the temple (as it details all the booby traps
in the passages). Penny then suggests that they camp the night and
study the temple in the morning. T-Bag then decides to steal the map
in the middle of the night.
the night, she sends T-Shirt to Diggory's tent to grab the map whilst
they sleep. They do this and then go into the temple. They spend the
entire night wandering the passages. Eventualy, they find a chink
of light and rush towards it. It turns out to be the main entrance
where they started from. T-Shirt looks at the map and finds that he
has stolen a map of the London Underground and that they have been
following the Circle Line all night.
greets them and asks them to join them for breakfast, but T-Bag demands
the map. Penny realises that T-Bag is evil and throws the map on the
fire. It turns out that although Diggory is forgetful, he has a photographic
memory for maps and diagrams.
Diggory and Penny set off into the temple to explore. T-Bag emerges
from the bushes and sits down to eat her packed lunch. T-Shirt demnds
to know why they aren't following Diggory and Penny, so T-Bag reveals
that she has painted Diggory's shoes with luminous paint, and he has
left a trail of footprints.
the temple, Penny notices the trail and takes the shoes and makes
a false trail leading to a bottomless pit. T-Bag and T-Shirt follow
it and fall down the pit.
the bottom of the pit, T-Bag discovers that there is a secret escape
route from the pit directly to the central chamber of the temple.
They find an altar in the shape of the sun with the sunstones around
the outside. T-Bag stands on the altar and changes into ceremonial
robes. The chamber fills with sunlight and starts filling T-Bag with
solar energy. Diggory and Penny rush in and discover T-Bag's plan.
Diggory snatches a sunstone from the altar and invokes a magical chant;
"Ecaps dna emit ni tsol eb dna rettacs senotsnus yawa!"
which actually sounds pretty convincing in the programme, but is actually,
"Away sunstones, scatter and be lost in time and space!"
backwards. Anyway, the sunstones all vanish apart from the one that
Diggory is holding. T-Bag is furious. Diggory vows to gather them
up and destroy them. T-Bag musters what solar power she has and releases
a bolt of lightening at Diggory which misses. Diggory and Penny then
dash out of the chamber, but Diggory stumbles and hurts his leg.
Diggory tells Penny that he must try to get the stones back, but Penny
tells him that he can't go with his hurt leg and offers to go instead.
He reluctantly agrees and hands Penny the last stone, explaining that
it will leads her to the others. She vanishes off on her quest.
