[[caption-width-right:350:All for one and one for all!]]

A direct to DVD feature from Creator/{{Disney}} that for once isn't a sequel to a much better film or a TV episode compilation. As the name suggests, it's the stars of the ClassicDisneyShorts in the roles of ''Literature/TheThreeMusketeers'', or at least a story similar in nature.

MickeyMouse, DonaldDuck and {{Goofy}} are three janitors who dream of becoming musketeers, but Mickey's size, Donald's cowardice and Goofy's intelligence (or lack thereof) are handicaps from their goal. However, they get their chance when Princess Minnie demands bodyguards from Captain Pete. Since said captain is planning to take over the kingdom, he decides to promote the three, hoping they'll be bungling enough not to ruin his plans.

The story is told by the Troubador, a singing turtle who is supposedly narrating it on live television. (Though not given a real name in the film, WordOfGod has it that the Troubador is an updated version of 1930s Disney character Toby Tortoise.)

Considering it's a DTV movie, it's actually quite an improvement on previous sequels which were mostly excuses to try and kick off (bad) television series.

A world based on the film, called ''Country of the Musketeers'' appeared in ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts3DDreamDropDistance''.
!!This movie contains the following tropes.
%% ZeroContextExample entries are not allowed on wiki pages. All such entries have been commented out. Add context to the entries before uncommenting them.
* AdaptationDecay: Admitted by the movie, especially in the commentary provided by Mickey, Donald, Goofy, and Pete in the fixing-the-plumbing scene.
** Bizarrely, it seems to be a sort-of sequel to the original ''Three Musketeers'', as the four Musketeers show up at the beginning to inspire Mickey.
%%* AmusingInjuries
* AnachronismStew: Several examples.
** This movie seems to take place in 18th century France, pre-revolution. And the opera, Creator/GilbertAndSullivan's ''Theatre/ThePiratesOfPenzance,'' wasn't around until 1879.
** Don't get started on the fast food Minnie and Daisy are eating as they discuss romance. This is clearly PlayedForLaughs, however.
** Indoor plumbing (seen in the opening), Electric lights (during Pete's crowning) and high-quality seamwork (seen on Mickey's and Donald's traditional apparel) certainly were ''not'' in vogue during this time. Lampshaded in the in-character DVDCommentary.
%%* {{Angrish}}: Donald, naturally.
* AsideGlance: Pete after the second mention of the Opera followed by the fanfare.
%%* AtArmsLength: The Beagle Boys to Mickey
* AtTheOperaTonight: Cut to the poster and cue the fanfare!
-->'''Pete:''' "That little ditty's startin' to grow on me!"
* BerserkButton: "French words make me mad!" said by a Beagle Boy.
** Donald, when he's had enough of the Troubadour Turtle berating him in song.
* BalefulPolymorph: Donald, despite already being a bird, turns into a literal chicken a few times during the movie to illustrate that he is a coward.
* RousseauWasRight: Inverted with Pete who explains how he was abandoned by his mother because he was already a despicable villain with no redeeming quality ''when he was a newborn''.
* BetaCouple: Donald and Daisy, with Goofy and Clarabelle forming a ''Gamma'' Couple.
%%* BondVillainStupidity
%%* BreakingTheFourthWall: The Troubadour does it repeatedly, and Pete does it briefly.
%%* ByTheLightsOfTheirEyes
* CallBack: During the first fight with the Beagle Boys, one of them slice through Mickey's musketeer uniform, revealing his trademark outfit underneath. Cue Mickey making his well-known pose before cut to the next frame. Donald is also shown wearing his trademark sailor suit under his uniform when [[spoiler: he decided to quit being a musketeer.]]
* ChangedMyMindKid: [[spoiler:Donald,]] after hearing the Troubadour berate him.
%%* ChekhovsGun: [[spoiler: The DisasterDominoes sequence]].
* ComedicUnderwearExposure: Subverted when one of the villain's lackeys [[ImplausibleFencingPowers rips Mickey's clothes to shreds]]. It instead reveals his familiar red shorts.
* ContinuityCameo: The Musketeers from the book save Mickey, Donald and Goofy when the latter were children. They even autographed Mickey's hat, which has the correct number of ''four'' signatures.
%%* CowardlyLion: Donald
%%* CueTheFlyingPigs:
-->'''Donald:''' I'll be a musketeer the day cows fall from the sky. ''(Cue Goofy and Clarabelle -- a cow -- falling on top of Donald and all but destroying his boat.)''
* DatingCatwoman: Goofy hooks up with [[TheDragon Clarabelle]].
%%* DirectToVideo: One of the better films in this category.
%%* DisasterDominoes
%%* DistressedDamsel: Minnie and Daisy.
%%* TheDragon: Clarabelle.
* DressedInLayers: Mickey dresses in at least two layers, and Donald dresses in at least three, judging by the way they rip off their clothes to reveal either Musketeer uniforms or their classic outfits underneath. Even Pete dresses in at least two layers.
* DrowningPit: Captain Pete tries to off Mickey by locking him in a dungeon in Mont-Saint-Michel, which floods when the tide rises.
%%* DyingAlone: [[spoiler: The fate Pete leaves Mickey to]].
* {{Expy}}: The Troubador is essentially an updated version of Toby Tortoise from the two SillySymphonies shorts.
* ExtremeOmnivore: When Pete is getting the Beagle Boys out of the pit, they are doing things to pass the time (drawing Pete with an arrow though his head for one). One of them was playing with jacks, and when Pete sees them relaxing, he quickly eats all of the jacks and the rubber ball.
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: Minnie is a princess, though she seems to be the monarch of France and a queen in everything but name. No mention is made of any king or queen existing.
%%* EvilChancellor
* FacePalm: {{Pete}}. Understandable, considering that he is SurroundedByIdiots with the Beagle Boys as henchmen.
%%* FakeKing
* FallingInLoveMontage: Mickey and Minnie when they first met in this film.
* FramingDevice: The film is told through a live recording of the Troubador reading a comic book.
* FreudianExcuse: Pete says his reason for being evil is because his mom didn't like him. However, his excuse doesn't really work here because he tells himself that ''the reason his mother didn't like him in the first place was that was really always an evil selfish jerk, even as a newborn''.
* FreezeFrameBonus: It zips by for half a handful of frames before getting too far to tell, so you gotta have sharp eyes: [[spoiler:The [[AnachronismStew license plate]] of one of the carriages is [[Creator/{{Pixar}} A113]].]]
%%* FunnyAnimal
* FurryConfusion: Naturally, with Goofy and Pluto in the same movie. Clarabelle and a non-anthropomorphic orange and white cow show up, as do horse-driven coaches.
* FurryReminder: Pete's furniture is subtly cat-themed.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar:
** For a few seconds in which he is seen falling into a hole, the original narrator (who was a complete dick towards the Troubador) is revealed to be a [[StealthPun donkey]].
** One of lines in the song wing of love is "birds and bees"
* HairTriggerSoundEffect: Every time Pete mentions the opera, it cuts to a poster and a snippet of ''ThePiratesOfPenzance''.
%%* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: Donald
%%* {{Hammerspace}}
%%* HappilyEverAfter: Well, it's {{Disney}}, what'd you expect?
%%* HeroicBSOD: A very brief bout.
* HighHeelFaceTurn: Hilariously spoofed with Clarabelle Cow.
%%* TheHitFlash
* IconicOutfit: Mickey and Donald were both shown wearing their default clothing at some point in the movie. However, the weight of the situation when they started wearing them were completely different, Mickey was revealed to be wearing his outfit under his Musketeer uniform as a gag, while Donald quickly changed into his sailor suit [[spoiler: when he decides to abandon Mickey at a crucial time of need.]]
* IdiotBall: It don't matter how BadAss you think you are - anytime a villain who's ''three times your size'' starts saying, "By the power vested in my fist..." that's a good time to ''run away.''
* KissingDiscretionShot: When Minnie first kisses Mickey, as is tradition in classic Disney media. With special thanks to Mickey's hat. Averted at the end when they kiss on the stage.
* LargeHam: Pete as always. Just LISTEN to the "Bad Guy Song"!
%%* LemonyNarrator: The Troubador
%%* LovableCoward: Donald
%%* LoveAtFirstSight: Mickey and Minnie.
* LoveRedeems: Clarabelle ends up falling for Goofy [[spoiler: while having him executed.]]
%%* LovesMeNot: Minnie does this in her introductory scene.
%%* MajorGeneralSong
* MediumAwareness:
** Pete. "Why'd the music stop?" He actually does this twice. When he is bringing The Beagle Boys out of the pit, the scene shifts to the poster for the opera and plays the same music bit again. When the scene shifts back to Pete, he stare at the poster, blinks his eyes a few times and continues speaking. He does it a third time when the opera bit happens, saying, "That little ditty's starting to grow on me."
* NeverSayDie: Averted. Everyone is open to admitting that people will die, saying words like "Die" "Death" "Kill" (etc) and Donald is put in a Guillotine at one point. Pete and Clarabelle do use (fairly obvious) euphemisms once, but they make the scene much scarier.
* NiceHat: Mickey treasures a hat given to him by the original Musketeers.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: The little Beagle at first seems like he's incompetent and silly. However it's revealed he's an expert in using the sword, especially a great wicked - looking one.
* OhCrap: Mickey's reaction to the "You Must Be This Tall to Survive this Dungeon" sign when the sewer begins to flood.
* PreAssKickingOneLiner: Pete turns Mickey's attempt to arrest him into one of these.
-->'''Mickey:''' Captain Pete, by the power invested in me, I arrest you!\\
'''Pete:''' Well, with the power ''invested in my fist,'' I clobber you! (''cue ass kicking'')
%%* PostKissCatatonia
* ThePowerOfFriendship: It's what ultimately enables Mickey and co. to emerge victorious.
* PublicDomainSoundtrack: The musical numbers are sung to the tune of classical pieces.
** Pete's VillainSong is set to "In the Hall of the Mountain King" by Edvard Grieg.
** The main theme sung by the Musketeers is set to the Infernal Galop from Offenbach's ''Orpheus In the Underworld,'' better known as the Can-Can.
** Some other classical tunes you'll hear are Blue Danube Waltz by Johann Strauss, Jr., and the "Habanera" aria from Bizet's ''Carmen.''
** The Creator/GilbertAndSullivan opera ''Theatre/ThePiratesOfPenzance'' plays a minor part in the plot. Even though it shouldn't exist yet.
* PitTrap: Pete puts the Beagle Boys in one when he finds out that they were going to kill Minnie, However its subverted in the fact that it is just a few feet deep.
* PrincessClassic: Princess Minnie is spoof of this trope with her over-the-top prancing around dreaming of her true love.
%%* QuirkyMinibossSquad: The Beagle Boys.
* RedBoxingGloves: When kidnapping Minnie, the Beagle Boys conceal one in a jack-in-the box to lure Goofy into looking at it. Considering that this is a cartoon, its kind of surprising that the glove isn't oversized.
* RunningGag: The same music, which happens to be the chorus of [[ThePiratesOfPenzance "With Catlike Tread"]] playing everytime the opera poster is shown.
%%* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Donald. [[spoiler:Don't worry, [[ChangedMyMindKid he comes back around eventually.]]]]
* ShoutOut:
** To ''Disney/TheLionKing'' and ''TheMickeyMouseClub'', among others.
** Pete mentions waiting for the song [[Disney/TheLionKing "I Just Can't Wait to be King"]] while heading to the opera.
** A ShoutOut to Creator/GilbertAndSullivan is also made during the opera scene. They're seeing ''Theatre/ThePiratesOfPenzance'', and the songs "WithCatlikeTread" and "ModernMajorGeneral" are heard.
** A minor one to ''Disney/ThePrinceAndThePauper'', Pete is once again the BigBad trying to take rule of the land from the rightful heir.
** The multiple Goofy clones appearing is undoubtedly a reference to the recurring use of this phenomenon in his original theatrical cartoons.
* ShownTheirWork: The three protagonists being rescued by ''four'' musketeers, as there was in the original book: Athos, Porthos, Aramis, and d'Artagnan.
* ShutUpHannibal: The Toby Tortoise {{Expy}} incites Donald into this by singing "This is the end"--to the tune of a classic Beethoven song.
* SlapstickKnowsNoGender: Pete did warn Clarabelle about the bricks at least.
** Minnie and Daisy also tumble down the stairs along with Mickey and Goofy.
* SpringtimeForHitler: Pete, upon being ordered by Minnie to find Musketeer bodyguards to protect her, deliberately picks the Mickey, Donald, and Goofy in hopes that their bumbling will prevent them from protecting her, and therefore making all the easier for him to kidnap her. It comes to backfire on him spectacularly when the trio actually starts becoming ''competent'' at their job.
* StarCrossedLovers: Minnie is forbidden to date Mickey since he's a commoner. This just attracts Minnie more.
%%* SurroundedByIdiots: Pete
%%* TerribleTrio: The Beagle Boys.
* ThatRemindsMeOfASong: Justified in some places, since the Troubadour openly admits to wanting to pepper the narration with songs that he wrote; in other parts, not so much.
%%* UptownGirl: Mickey (commoner) and Minnie (princess).
* VillainSong: "Petey's King of France". Disney knows they love these things, and even the Troubadour shows it by [[LampshadeHanging enthusiastically announcing it.]]
%%* VillainWithGoodPublicity: Pete.
%%* WorldOfFunnyAnimals
* WouldHitAGirl:
** Mickey Donald and Goofy pile on Daisy Duck, mistaking her for a bad guy.
** In the comics adaptation, an earlier scene has Mickey tell Donald about recent threats to the kingdom. It seems "[[TheUnseen Prince Gimlet]]" was murdered by a royal waitress with an hors d'oeuvres knife. Hapless Daisy appears to be about to pull off a similar crime.
