Mickey’s Three Musketeers – Disneycember

Mickey Donald and Goofy fight the evil Pete to save the fair princess Minnie. Yeah, it’s that kind of flick.

    I’ve heard it could have been better but was diluted by the corporate culture of the time. There is supposedly a deleted scene where Mickey meets Walt Disney and Walt asks how things are going without him. Mickey gives a brief overview, ending with “and then we tried a California theme park, but a ha, that didn’t turn out very well!”

    They didn’t even try to let that one pass; it was never submitted with the scene in it.

  2. I kind of thought it was adorable. Not a classic, but colorful and cute. But then, I was curled up on the couch with a three year old who LOVES Donald Duck when I saw it. She bounced up and down to “Bad Guy Song” and laughed so hard at “This is the End” that she squirted juice out of her nose, then started crying because it burned. It may not have much for adults, but it is a fun film to watch with very little kids.

    Also…the film is one of those trope-aware flicks. If you like reading tvtropes you might get a kick out of it, even if you don’t have a three year old.

  3. Yep, I saw this on Disney Channel one day. I remember it kinda. I wouldn’t see it again but I don’t regret that I saw it. I remember thinking that Minnie’s dresses were super pretty.

  4. You REALLY need to do Pooh’s Grand Adventure. It is theoretically better than the actual Winnie the Pooh movie.

    But related to The Three Musketeers: I remember it being fun and really well animated, but I just don’t think it had anything very memorable going on in it. Just really forgettable.

  5. I know this is going to sound kind of weird, but did anyone else notice that in this thing Minnie Mouse looks like Micky in drag?

    I mean that. I know they are incredibly similar looking characters (one being an expy of the other, after all), but here whatever small difference in proportion or shape that used to distinguish him from her is gone completely. They look like exactly the same character in different clothing. Is that a deliberate stylistic choice or just a failure of the animators?

  6. I remember Leonard Maltin saying good things about this movie. I guess it’s not that good after all. Still, the animation is nice. It looks like nothing more than you’d expect. Well, at least it’s nothing less. Again, Mickey Mouse isn’t that funny a character.
