Synopsis

A BEAUTIFUL TALE BY HANS CHRISTIAN ANDERSEN
Based on a story "The Shepherdess and the Chimney Sweep" by Hans Christian Andersen this animated gem is set in the Kingdom of Takicardie. King Charles, a cross-eyed, pinched-faced tyrant, loves a charming shepherdess - but she loves and is loved by a little chimney-sweep. Aided by a wily impertinent mockingbird, who wears a top-hat and nests about the king's private apartments with his children, the lovers escape to the sunless lower city, but are soon captured. The bird instigates a revolt in the lion's den where he and the sweep have been cast, saves the shepherd, and destroys the royal palace with the aid of the king's secret weapon, a huge robot.
