Cult Cartoon Essentials: Dogtanian and the Three Muskehounds

“One For All and All For One – Muskehounds are always ready!”

Dogtanian and the Three Muskehounds is a Spanish–Japanese animated anthropomorphic adaptation of the classic Alexandre Dumas story of d’Artagnan and The Three Musketeers. It ran for 26 episodes. A sequel series The Return of Dogtanian continued the story.

An important triva note to make is that The Muskehounds are referred to as musketeers throughout the cartoon. It is only the title calls them Muskehounds.

The story, set in the 17th century, follows a young Dogtanian travels to Paris in order to become one of the King Louis XIII of France’s musketeers.

Dogtanian quickly befriends three musketeers (Porthos, Athos and Aramis) and falls in love with Juliette, a maid-in-waiting for Queen Anne of Austria.
