Gardening with Terence is the thirteenth episode of Angry Birds Toons.
Terence casts an ominous shadow over Matilda's flower beds. Can she get him to move before her prize blooms wilt?
One day Matilda was giving water to her flower garden and enjoying their splendour. As she was doing this, however, Terence suddenly appeared and rather inconveniently, positioned himself on a cliff above the garden, blocking out the Sun. Matilda got shocked because of the lack of sunlight that Terence provides, threatening her plants' growth. She decided to move Terence before the situation gets worse, to no avail. As she saw her plants' condition worsening, she tried to calm herself through meditation, only to snap in anger at her predicament of trying to move Terence.
After failed attempts involving a pole, some rope and a boulder, Matilda ultimately tried to use TNT to blast Terence out of the way, but all that does is to cause him to sink himself on his current position a little. Deciding that it's hopeless, Matilda bursted into tears, then suddenly noticed a purple flower on her head that landed there after being blasted by the explosion, and decided to put her garden on top of Terence. The latter didn't mind this, happily growling as she continues.
