Iznogoud Iznogoud Caliph's Vacation by Goscinny

Legend has it that in Baghdad the magnificent, a great and particularly dark-minded vizier, who answers to the name of Iznogoud, works on his ambition to steal the throne of Caliph Haroun al Plassid. Thus his favourite saying: 'I want to be caliph instead of the caliph!' Iznogoud, seconded by his faithful servant Wa'at Alahf, goes on vacation with the caliph...in the desert! Of course, his goal is to get rid of him by any means necessary.
