I like to treat this as an hour-long Classical Music concert that was released when my life changed positively going forward.

I explored my Netflix Streaming account recently, and saw that this direct-to-video project that I technically would not call a sequel, was on there. The way I knew about this little Mickey Mouse short-like film is that when I bought the DVD of another direct-to-video sequel, "The Lion King 1 1/2" which is this one's rival, if you will, at the Annies (LK 1.5 won, but I would choose this movie), there was a short trailer for this before you had access to the DVD menu.

So, I loved this movie in many ways. For one thing, I love "Fantasia", "Fantasia 2000" and the Italian released equivalent "Allegro non Troppo". They all have little animated segments combined into a full-length animated masterpiece, over which we hear Classical pieces. That is not how this one works, though. This is an hour-long little movie with Mickey and his gang that tells the famous story that the title suggests, taking place in 19th Century France where it is narrated by a tortoise troubadour who plays the lute and sings songs. When we hear music in the film, it is set to classical melodies like those heard in the projects I mentioned earlier, with original lyrics. One song in particular I would like to talk about is a major highlight of this cartoon titled "Sweet Wings Of Love", set to the tune of the "Blue Danube Waltz" by Johann Strauss. Other examples of melodies we hear are "Habanera" from "Carmen", "Orpheus in the Underworld Overture" and the French "Can-can".

Another reason I really liked this little concert-type film is that it was released in August of 2004. In my personal life, it was the beginning of an eight-year World Record of being free from visiting Walt Disney World in Central Florida. Now the point of me bringing this subject up is that I used to live in Florida as a kid, and my family and I would visit that popular tourist destination almost semi-annually, so I got tired of it eventually. Also, I'm not fond of theme parks, and sometimes I like to imagine myself at a Classical concert while I watch this forgotten movie that no Disney fans talk about anymore (I'm a fan of some of Disney's projects, though, and this one's definitely not the only one). Taking new vacations that summer not only helped in expanding my horizon, it also helped me improve my in-class behavior in school, and I also got better at handling loud noises with PA Speakers, because at Disney Amusement Parks that's what they're about.

While I never saw this as a kid, I do like to look back on memories of how I've been a Classical music fan all my life, which I still am to this day.

Disney forever

Everlasting war between fans of DC and Marvel universes sucked me in pointless thinking of which one is better for a while. I don't know who's better, but I know that both can kiss Disney's ass. As a kid I was comic-books fan. There were superhero comics mentioned above, than Il Grande Blek, Za-Gor-Te-Nay, Martin Mystery, Dylan Dog and bunch of others. I gave up on comics long time ago and the only one I still cherish is unsurpassed Alan Ford. But as a child, I did not rejoice in anything as much as I rejoiced Mickey and company.

Mickey, Donald and Goofy, as three musketeers, are saving princess, followed by original lyrics written on the famous compositions of legends of classical music. I don't know why I decided to watch this at all. I suppose I wanted to take a look at how Mickey looks like nowadays and turn it off in a few minutes, but I ended up watching it till the end with a smile from ear to ear. And to be honest, I didn't feel so cheerful for a long time. Disney forever <3

A dull-as-dishwater movie that tries way too hard to be funny.

I have grown up with Disney all my life, and as a kid, I loved Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy; along with all the wacky scenarios they would get themselves into. This movie, however, is the weakest thing I have ever seen these classic characters in. The animation may be good, but the film falls flat on its face. Allow me to explain.

The jokes can go from kind of funny to outright repetitive and aggravating. The characters will reinstate one joke a couple of times and the way they're presented is flat out lazy. Donald and Goofy themselves are completely out of character.

Donald acts like the Cowardly Lion from "The Wizard of Oz" and Goofy has the personality equivalent of Modern Patrick Star, if you were to put that version of the "SpongeBob" character in a Disney movie. The only characters that had some likability were Mickey, Minnie, Clarabelle, Daisy, and even Pete. The rest of them are absolutely annoying.

The songs are so-so, for the most part, but some of them are barely original. They use classic tunes and just throw a bunch of nonsensical lyrics onto them. The story feels more like a parody of "The Three Musketeers" rather than a loose adaptation as well, and I forgot to mention this, but some of the jokes feel like blatant pop culture references than attempts to make the audience laugh. Sometimes, they don't try to be subtle.

This movie is not terrible, but it's not great, either. In my opinion, like the title of this review states, it's dull as dishwater. This could've been a funny, entertaining film for all ages, but from start to finish, it's a complete bore fest.
