Degenerate cases of the problem of Apollonius, to construct a circle tangent to each of three given circles, are discussed and exhaustively classified for proper circles (finite and non-zero radius). Singular cases are considered, and an outline of the extension of the problem to higher dimensions given. Amusing alternative interpretations of the results are obtained.
