The weapon appears to be working correctly as it promptly send him through the ceiling and out of the castle. Pretty soon it is time for battle and as usual the Hasbeenes are up to no good in the never ending attempt to take the castle and grab the oil. The battle commences with the Hasbeenes trying to break down the castle gates with a battering ram. Cue-ee-dee's machine saves the day by springing all the enemy soldiers out of the castle.

The Queen is awoken by a terrible smell coming from the castle dungeons. She goes off to investigate and finds Cue-ee-dee and albrite busy in the basement. She tells them to get rid of the foul odorous chemical (dandelion wine gone bad). They try several places but then Cue-ee-dee thinks of sending it into space using a rocket. The next day, the Hasbeenes are at it again, this time a cunning plan to get into the castle and steal the oil is only thwarted by a quick thinking albrite. The Queen receives an unusual gift - a large wooden elephant. She believes it to be a peace offering from her enemies and allows it inside the castle. What she does not know is that the enemy is inside the gift and are intending to steal the oil reserves. Later that night the Beosweyne produces a huge drill out of the elephant and into the ground. It goes right through the earth and ends up very near albrite. albrite realises what is happening and ensures the nasty wine is sucked up from the barrel. albrite the saves the day by attaching a rocket to the wooden elephant as it tries to make a getaway. He then gets the guards to open the castle gates as the elephant containing the Hasbeenes blasts through it. Poor Beosweyne and his men crash into a tree and end up covered in stinking Dandelion wine.

Elbow goes to speak to the King as he is concerned that his men will be unfit to defend the castle against the Hasbeenes. Mudlin remembers a four legged animal that used to pull chariots but he does not know where to find one. He suggests that the Queen go and see Cue-ee-dee and get him to make a special machine to pull the chariot. Cue-ee-dee sets about the planning and construction of such a device. He works on into the night and all the noise keeps the castle residents awake. The noise is so bad that it keeps up the Hasbeenes as well. The leader Beosweyne is not very happy but goes off to investigate and the next morning he plans an attack on the castle. That very same morning, however, Cue-ee-dee as completed his task and presents his new chariot to the Queen. She is overjoyed and takes it out for a spin.
