Pieds Nickelés. The Pieds Nickelés was created by the French creator Louis Forton (Isidore Mac-Aron & Anatole Fricotard) and appeared in the comic strip “Les Pieds Nickelés” (L’Epatant, 1908-1934).

The Pieds Nickelés are Riboulingue, Filochard, and Croquignol, a trio of rascally scoundrels whose schemes often go wrong and rebound on themselves. They are enemies of the law, but as time goes by they become more successful and steal from increasingly wealthy and well-connected men, including King Edward VII. They eventually become ministers of France, and during World War One fight against the Germans.
