Archie O'Toole became the king of Pyromania, and his reign was tumultuous.

Archie O'Toole was a poor traveling artist on the island nation of Pyromania. When the dictator of Pyromania, Gil O. Teen, forced O'Toole to paint his portrait or die, O'Toole managed, mostly accidentally, to defenestrate and embarass Teen, which (under the laws of Pyromania) meant Teen was deposed. In gratitude, the populace declared O'Toole to be the new King of Pyromania.
