Henry stuns everyone, including himself, when he truly does his homework.

With some pressure from his classmates, Horrid Henry truly does his homework to avoid having to listen to Miss Battle-Axe play her bagpipes again.


The episode begins with Henry and Ralph going to school discussing a song. Henry says that the best song is Thrash Hornets, but Ralph thinks that Eggs on the Brain are the best. While going to school, Henry asks Bert which song is better. Nicola thinks they're both rubbish, Andrew says Eggs on the Brain then Thrash Hornets. They then get to class.

Thrash Hornets is the best guitar solo, but Eggs on the Brain is the best keyboard solo according to Al. Miss Battle-Axe comes in and is glad to see the ones in a good mood, she draws a smiley face. Miss Battle-Axe wants Henry to share his good mood with everyone. Henry rejects, but Miss Battle-Axe won't take 'no' for an answer.

She then asks someone why Henry is in a good mood. Margaret stated they were arguing about what was the best song ever. Miss Battle-Axe asks Henry which song in his opinion estimates. Henry replies with Thrash Hornets but Miss Battle Axe claims to be that wrong answer.

She also says some are good and some are not so good. She reaches out for something which turns out to be bagpipes (a Scottish instrument that the user blows the front and squeezes the end tube to make music). She blows on her instrument and makes music, which makes Henry scream 'Noooo!!!', opening the title card.

The students cannot stand the music and soon feel tired including Henry who falls asleep and is woken up again. She makes more music again but then the bell goes and the class is dismissed. However, Henry is stopped by Miss Battle-Axe who plays another song to Henry which causes him depression.

Margaret and the other students start to spy on him through the door. Ralph thinks Henry needs their help but Margaret reckons he can look after himself but Ralph forcefully gets through her and sees Henry who calls for help but Margaret closes the door still saying Henry's enjoying himself when that's practically the opposite.

Sid comes in and applauds for the music, Miss Battle-Axe strongly appreciates it. All the students sit down for Round 2 this with Sid's Banjo. They start playing.

Margaret soon says it's all Henry's fault which he already knows as usual (despite the fact she was tattling on him) before returning her seat. The teacher soon finish. Sid soon leaves. Miss Battle-Axe soon issues homework.
