Best buddies Mickey, Donald, and Goofy are small-time janitors with big dreams of becoming Musketeers. Peg-Leg Pete, captain of the Musketeers, points out why they'll never make it: Donald is a coward, Goofy is a dim-wit, and Mickey is short. But things change when Princess Minnie demands Musketeer bodyguards when assassins, hired by Pete so he can be king, nearly drop a safe on her. Knowing real Musketeers are too-well trained, Pete hires Mickey, Donald, and Goofy, the clumsy janitors as Musketeers and Minnie's bodyguards. Written by

Did You Know?
When Disney was trying to develop a Mickey Mouse feature film in the early 1940s, one of the ideas considered was "The Three Musketeers", but it was abandoned because the original novel requires four main characters (the titular musketeers and D'Artagnan) and the filmmakers found it difficult to come up with a good combination of established characters to fill the parts. Sixty-plus years later, the problem was solved by having Mickey, Donald and Goofy not play the original Three Musketeers and thus tell a story that parallels the original but is not strictly an adaptation of it. The original Musketeers, incidentally, are the ones who saved the gang in the beginning of the film, and their autographs are in the hat they give Mickey. See more
When Pete sings his "Bad Guy Song", he drops through the cellar on a rope attached to a basket of bricks, and hands Clarabelle his hat, telling her to watch out for the bricks, but the bricks were on the other side of the rope from her, though they hit her anyway. See more
It's all over, Mickey, and you're all alone. And now with you out of the picture, getting rid of the princess will be easy as pie.
