The unlikeliest heroes in any queen's court would have to be janitors Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and Goofy, who dream of adventure in Disney's animated feature The Three Musketeers
and get their wish under dubious circumstances. Though the trio aspires to perform brave deeds on behalf of their monarch, Minnie Mouse (who pines for a fantasy beau that looks a lot like Mickey), they are held back as servants by the head Musketeer, Pete. What they don't know is that Pete secretly schemes to get rid of the queen but has, thus far, failed in his efforts. Desperate, he appoints Mickey and his bumbling friends guardians to Minnie--on the assumption she'll be all the more vulnerable--but underestimates their determined, if slapstick, resourcefulness. Good, classic Disney comedy meets storybook romance in this short (68 minutes) animated feature, which features songs and familiar melodies by Tchaikovsky, Strauss, and Beethoven. --Tom Keogh
Full-length animated musical starring Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy as the swashbuckling trio. When Princess Minnie asks Pete, the Captain of the Musketeers, to provide her with bodyguards after discovering that someone is out to get her, the dastardly Pete pronounces Mickey and his friends new members of the Legion of Musketeers and assigns them the job. But his wicked plan backfires when the unlikely heroes end up saving the day.
