This Tom and Jerry cartoon is set in 18th century France. Tom, who is a soldier in a castle, is assigned to guard the food laid out on a banquet table. Jerry and a smaller mouse companion, two wandering "mouseketeers," make the situation miserable for Tom as they abscond with (and occasionally eat) all the food they can. Written by

The title is based on the novel 'The Three Musketeers' by Alexandre Dumas. It recounts the adventures of a young man named d'Artagnan after he leaves home to become a musketeer and his adventures with Athos, Porthos, and Aramis who live by the motto "one for all, all for one." See more »
Nibbles sings the song "Alouette" while he is making a sandwich. The song is French-Canadian, not French, and was not published until the latter half of the 19th century, well after the 18th-century setting of this cartoon, making this anachronistic as well. See more »
I love Jerry & Nibbles together. Although in the early cartoons of his filmography, you would never hear Nibbles talk, except in the "Mouseketeers" cartoons and in the Cinescope cartoon "Robin Hoodwinked," where Jerry and Nibbles tried to free Robin Hood from prison; of course Nibbles talked in a British Cockney accent.
This is the first of a series of Tom & Jerry cartoons, where Jerry & Nibbles are mousey musketeers and matching wits with Tom the palace guard/cat. In this cartoon, the Mouseketeers are stealing food from the palace banquet hall and Tom tries to stop them; but fail, I am surprised that he a cartoon character got executed YIKES!
As I said before, I love a good swashbuckler neither movie or cartoon...take Daffy Duck's "The Scarlet Pumpernickel" for example. And I love that Nibbles could speak flaunt French in the "Mouseketeers," something you would never hear in cartoons, because a cartoon character would speak different languages in a pseudo manner. So this cartoon is now became my favorite out of the "Mouseketeer" cartoons.
