Le Roi Charles V et Trois font Huit et Huit font Seize règne en tyran sur le royaume de Takicardie. Seul un Oiseau, enjoué et bavard, qui a construit son nid en haut du gigantesque palais, tout près des appartements secrets de Sa Majesté, ose le narguer. Le Roi est amoureux d’une charmante et modeste Bergère qu’il veut épouser sous la contrainte. Mais celle-ci aime un petit Ramoneur. Tous deux s’enfuient pour échapper au Roi et, réfugiés au sommet de la plus haute tour du palais, sauvent un petit oiseau imprudent pris à l’un des pièges du Tyran. Le Père Oiseau reconnaissant promet en retour de les aider. La police retrouve la trace des fugitifs. Une folle poursuite s’engage. Des machines volantes conduites par des policiers moustachus, de mystérieuses créatures couleur de muraille qui espionnent la ville, des tritons motorisés et le Roi sur son trône électrique flottant, ou sur son gigantesque Automate, les pourchassent…

The huge kingdom of Takicardia is ruled by a king under the unwieldy title of Charles V + III = VIII + VIII = XVI. He’s a heartless ruler, hated by his people as much as he hates them. The king is fond of hunting, but is unfortunately cross-eyed– not that anyone would dare acknowledge this in front of him, as the numerous statues and paintings that adorn the palace and the land show. Occasionally the king does hit his target though, notably the wife of the bird, known only as « l’Oiseau », the narrator of the story who takes pleasure in taunting the terrible king at every opportunity.

In his secret apartment, the king dreams of the beautiful shepherdess whose painting he keeps on his wall, but the shepherdess is in love with the chimney sweep whose hated portrait is on the opposite wall. At night the paintings come to life and attempt to escape from the palace, but are pursued by a non-cross-eyed painting of the king that also has come to life, deposed the real king and has taken his place. He orders the capture of the shepherdess and the sweep, but the bird is there to help when called upon.
