MI6 agent James Bancoran is assigned to the island kingdom of Malynera to protect its young ruler Prince Patalliro the Eighth. Malynera is located in the South Seas, and possesses an inexhaustible supply of diamonds; for this reason it is being constantly being targeted by an international syndicate who wants those diamonds. Bancoran is cool-blooded and charming and able to handle these perils as an elite secret agent... what he has trouble with is the young king, for Patalliro is a mischievous, lewd troublemaker who is guaranteed to cause devastation and disaster wherever he goes (especially with Bancoran's many lovers, both male and female). The harassed and hassled Bancoran must not only keep the young king and his domain from the syndicate, but must also protect the world from being wrecked by Patalliro!

The "Cock Robin" routine was so popular that it became a song appearing in the closing credits. See more
[opening theme song
Paa Pa-Pa-Pa, Paa Pa-Pa-Pa, Paa Pa-Pa-Pa, Po-Pe-Pu-Pi-Paa! Bustling about from morning to night / Foolishly laughing at a successful prank / Flat tired at important times / Pa-Pe-Pu-Pu Pe-Po-Pa-Po Patalliro! / Transforming when something happens / Taking off in a flying rocket / Slipping up and blacking out / Pa-Pe-Pi-Pu Pe-Po-Pa-Po Patalliro! / Loves to do the things, that no one thinks of / Causing lots of trouble, PATALLIROOO!
The opening credits feature Patalliro in a variety of costumes (he in fact flies across the series title dressed up as Superman). The sequence ends with Patalliro breaking the world in half. See more
