The King's Apples is a Sesame Street story read by Bob. It tells the tale of King Gerry the Generous, a royal monarch who lives up to his name and loves apples more than anything. One day, he makes two separate promises to give two apples, first to his daughter, the Princess Geraldine, who is going on a picnic with her boyfriend, Nick, then to his royal doctor, who is having lunch with a colleague. It's then that he realizes he has only three apples in all, and therefore not enough to give away. Fortunately, his Royal Apple Tree is listening and gives the king three extra apples. After giving two each to his doctor and daughter, he keeps one for himself and gives the last to Bob.
