Horrid Henry and the Secret Club (episode) is the thirtieth episode in Series 1 and the 30th episode overall.


A day of dares and challenges is declared to decide which is better - The Purple Hand Gang or The Secret Club!


Margaret was not letting Susan in the Secret Club if she knows the Secret Club password. Henry said, 'Nunga' and tells them the password. Margaret got mad and blamed Susan because she probably tells Henry the password. Susan was telling Margaret not to let Henry in, while Margaret said it in the rule book and said the password 'Nunga Nu'. Henry went to Margaret's playhouse and Margaret and Susan had a plan together. Henry was grabbing Margaret's biscuits. Margaret tells Henry he's in and to get out. Henry says she can't pass the Purple Hand Gang security that easy. Then Susan went to Henry's Purple Hand Gang fort and Margaret tells Henry to have more biscuits. Henry went back to his Purple Hand Gang fort, and find Peter, but he was gone. Henry got very shocked when he saw drawing on his king picture and all of his biscuits are gone. He saw the tiny paper of the Secret Club logo, and he shouts, 'NOOOOOOO!' opening the title card.

Henry ties up Peter to the tree and punishes him with the water holes. Peter said it was his fault who found out Margaret's password, but Henry said he still gets the punishment for not being on guard duty. Peter said that Susan was getting a glass of water and she and Peter just realized. Henry was ready for Peter to get punished by the water hose, then Margaret and Susan pour a bucket of water on Henry's head. Henry got very mad and went to Margaret's back yard again. Susan got scared and Margaret said it's only just water but Henry said it's 'Turbo powered water!'. Margaret and Susan ran away from the water holes and got wet then Henry goes back to his side. Mum came to the backyard and said to Henry why he always has to be so horrid. Mum asks Henry, 'Why can't you play nicely with Peter?' while she was untying Peter. Margaret and Susan accidentally pour water on Henry's mum and Peter then duck down.

Henry grabs his Purple Hand Gang flag and tells Mum that he didn't start it while going back outside. Mum didn't care about it and told Henry to just play nicely or else. Henry plants his flag and sits down frustratingly when Margaret asked what was the matter. Henry tells Margaret that he's worried if he's not good, Mum will get rid of the Purple Hand Gang fort, and plant more vegetables. Margaret thinks that vegetables can't join his gang. Henry said her club is stinkier, pooper, scooper, and everyone knows the Purple Hang Gang is best. Margaret tells him to prove it, and Henry thinks she should challenge him, so Margaret challenges him. Peter plays the trumpet as Susan reads the scroll on deciding which club is the best between The Secret Club or The Purple Hand Gang while Margaret and Henry paint their flag logos on paper then sticks it on the fence and says 'Let the battle commence.'

The first round, Margaret was tied up to a tree as Henry puts on her hair to make her freak out but she shake them off and Susan gives The secret club a point. Now it was Henry's turn to be tied up as Margaret pours worm in his shirt and he tries to be strong then she puts some worm in his trousers but he swallows them and Peter gives a point to the Purple Hand Gang. The next round was a duel, Susan and Peter shovel up smelly, stinky composts then they head a distance of Henry and Margaret who were ready and started counting up to 10 as they approach one of them. Henry and Margaret held out their shovels then launches at the same time but then they avoided the compost which ended up hitting Peter and Susan instead and they put a cross meaning they both lost this round then Margaret asked what was the next challenge and Henry says 'It's Glop Time.

In the kitchen, Henry and Margaret were mixing their Glop in each bowl together adding their recipes in them. Margaret grabs of Fluffy's cat food and Henry uses them all from Fluffy's bowl. The two were mixing so fast that their glop splashes as Fluffy tastes it but it was too spicy. Margaret goes outside and picks something on the grass in the backyard as Peter and Susan watch her then she comes back telling Henry it's her secret ingredient. Henry goes to his room and tells his hamster in his cage, Fang to move back as he shovels some stuff making it his secret ingredient. Henry and Margaret both swap bowls but then she reveals a snail in her hand and Henry refuses to let her put it in. Henry and Margaret couldn't eat each other's glop then agreed to call it a draw and gives them to Peter and Susan instead. Henry and Margaret have a pirate sword fight together in her backyard but Henry steals her hat and Margaret takes his off too making it a tie. Next they do a hand stand challenge but they both fall down at the same time then they wore helmets, hoped on their bikes holding pillows and pedaled towards each other but crashes on a trampoline together.

Henry holds up his pillow and tries to Margaret say Purple Hand Gang is best but she refuses by taking his flag and tries to cut it using scissors. So Henry says the Secret Club is the best and makes Margaret give his flag back to him. Margaret and Susan celebrated their victory until Margaret falls on a trampoline again and Henry ties her up by pulling the string as payback for cheating. Henry holds Margaret tight and orders her to surrender and says the Purple Hand Gang is the best exchange for letting her go but she struggles to break free. Margaret says 'Purple Hand Gang is best!' and Susan unties her as Henry and Peter go to celebrate their victory. Peter raises their flag on the pole as Henry shouts 'WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS!' when suddenly, he sees ropes around his fort. Margaret and Susan starting pull down the Purple Hand Gang fort and Henry holds onto the flag pole but then Margaret gets pulled in joining Henry on the pole trapping them together as he screams 'NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!' with Peter and Susan watching them, ending the episode.




  • This episode marks Fang's first appearance. As such, he looks different than the other episodes.
  • There is a version of this episode on YouTube in which two of the errors were fixed. The background when Henry screamed was fixed, and when he left the house through the back door, he was holding the Purple Hand flag, fixing the error as he was originally holding the Secret Club flag. These are also fixed on the DVD version. However, these errors are still present in the TV version.
  • The reason why Margaret let Henry eat all of her biscuits is that she ate all of his.
  • This is one of the seven episodes where Horrid Henry and Moody Margaret both lose throughout the episode. The others are Horrid Henry's School Fair, Horrid Henry Gets Rich Quick, Horrid Henry's Aquarium, Horrid Henry Gets a Job,Perfect Peter, Popstar and Horrid Henry on TV.
  • It is unclear who actually won as they both got trapped on the Purple Hand fort flagpole in the end, following Margaret's attempted attack on Henry's fort as Henry and Peter were celebrating their 'victory'.

  • When Henry screams Noooo!!! to open the episode, the background changed. (CITV version only)
  • When Henry leaves the house through the back door, he is holding the Secret Club flag instead of the Purple Hand flag. (CITV version only)
  • When Henry and Margaret were on the flag pole and Henry screams, 'Noooo!!!', his mouth movements don't match.
  • When Henry shouts, 'Stop!' for the second time, half of his hair is his skin colour.
  • If Henry and Margaret swapped glops and gave them to Peter and Susan, they would've given the yuckiest glop to the wrong person.
  • When Susan says, 'Let the battle commence!', The Secret Club flag has a red circle on it.
  • When Henry says "gotcha!" his mouth didn't move.

Differences from the book

  • The storyline of the episode differs from that of the book:
    • In the book, after Henry invades the Secret Club, he sets a trap above the entrance to the club tent with a bucket of water above the entrance. Unfortunately Margaret has the same idea and rigs the Purple Hand fort in the same way, which ends with Peter and Susan falling into the traps.
    • In the episode, after Henry invades the Secret Club, he argues with Margaret over whose club is best. This leads to a series of challenges being held to determine which club is superior.
  • In the episode, Susan raids the Purple Hand fort in return for Henry raiding the Secret Club tree house. This doesn't happen in the book. Consequently, in the book, Henry doesn't punish Peter for letting Susan in, instead he punishes him for arguing that he should have raided the Secret Club instead of Henry.
  • Henry doesn't attempt to spray Peter with the hose in the book, he simply banishes him from the club. Therefore, he doesn't spray Margaret and Susan in the book either.
