"This story is based upon the famous novel by Alexandre Dumas père. In all their adventures, our musketeers hold true to the two virtues that should never be forgotten... honor and friendship." See more »
this is the sort of cartoon that you love as a child but when you see it through adult eyes you realise that while you may still be fond of it,it should remain in the rosy land of childhood memories
The animation is good but it's nothing special.The characters are more cuddly than daring,as they were in the books.Dogtanian is still feisty and headstrong but as this is a children's cartoon they had to remove his amourous nature. For most of the series the cartoon stays amazingly close to the books and it's only in the concluding episodes that it strays a little This cartoon starts off strongly but towards the end of it's mammoth 26 episodes it starts to get weaker and you are willing it to finish. In conclusion, watch it if you are heavily into childhood nostalgia or you want to show it to your kids ,otherwise leave it to the memories of childhood.Only for the very young. 6out of 10 rating.
