Dogtanian and the Three Muskehounds is an animated cartoon adaptation of the classic Alexandre Dumas story of d’Artagnan and The Three Musketeers. Most of the characters are anthropomorphizations of dogs, hence the title of the cartoon. Exceptions to this are the temptress Milady (a cat); Pip, Dogtanian’s sidekick mouse; the avian jewel thief Blue Falcon; Planchet (a bear), Dogtanian’s main servant; and some random townspeople and guards of the Cardinal.
The story, set in the 17th century, follows a young Dogtanian (D’Artacan in the original Spanish version and voiced by Cam Clarke in the English version, and Darutaniyan in the Japanese version and voiced by Satomi Majima) who travels to Paris in order to become one of the King Louis XIII of France’s musketeers. (Note; that they are referred to as musketeers throughout the cartoon and only the title calls them muskehounds). He quickly befriends three musketeers (Porthos, Athos and Aramis) and falls in love with Juliette, a maid-in-waiting for Queen Anne of Austria.
