Lesson plan for Mr. Peabody's Apples by Madonna. One Saturday, Mr. Peabody, a beloved teacher and baseball coach, finds himself alone on the ball field. He wonders where everybody is until the bat boy, Billy Little, shows up. Billy tells him that another student, Tommy Tittlebottom, saw Mr. Peabody taking apples from the market and spread a rumour he was a thief. Mr. Peabody then shows Tommy that what matters is the truth — not how things appear.
