Storyline

Young Poppy is sent to Grotbags' Gloomy Fortress as part of the Witches' Youth Training Scheme. Although Grotbags is upset that 'Soppy Poppy' cleans up her antique cobwebs, she find the girl's latest edition Bezazer very interesting. When Sultan Vineger from Persiarabia wants to keep King Boggle's panto horse (with Guards Brandon and Reg inside) for himself, Good King Boggle is unable to refuse. Then the Sultan sets eyes on Princess Hortensia... Rod and Emu report from a sausage factory and Ken Dodd pays a brief visit to the Pink Windmill. Written by The TV Archaeologist
