King Jozef was about to tend his bees, when princess Prieeltje bites a poisoned apple, by which means the mother of the Devill hopes to take her place as the new royal heir. The Grimm brothers can only confirm she's very sick, and know of just one physician capable of healing her, but Dr. Drenkelaar (Dutch for 'drowning man') won't practice medicine anymore since he fell in love fifty years ago with Cecilia, but failed an appointment and since is too tired. Kulderzipken gets him awake long enough by having the royal couple make lots of coffee, but learns the only remedy is the decapitation of the one who loves her most- himself. Fortunately the Devil rats on his mother just before his head was to roll on the chopping block.
21 January 1996 (Belgium)
