D’artanian wasn’t a musketeer. He just a friend of the other 3.

Also: For a group called the “musketeers” they didn’t use a helluva lot of muskets in that movie.

waigl,

There was like one scene with muskets in the book. Even then, I grew up with this material (in the form of several different movie and cartoon adaptations, and eventually the book, too), and it took me an embarrassingly long time to figure out that the name musketeer comes from the musket.

Dwayne_Elizondo_Mountain_Dew_Camacho,

Don’t be too hard on yourself. I figured it out just now.

Pas fort, Dwayne, pas fort…

JustAnotherRando,

Unrelated, but just wanted to say that I appreciate your username. Would vote for you for president.

Volkditty,

Ok, explain Mouseketeers, though. WTF is a mouseket?

mosiacmango,

A mouse sized musket.

I used to speech to text because I couldn’t remember how to spell it and apparently the dictionary on my phone doesn’t know either. 🤣

Surprised it put the apostrophe in there and didn’t just give me “Dartanian.”

dohpaz42,

THERE ARE FOUR L… oh forget it.

The man is iconic.

FordBeeblebrox,

The gf and I always have trouble finding a movie to watch, I think a Curry marathon while we cook curry for dinner is just the ticket.

iltoroargento,

Wonderful idea! I’ve gotta rewatch Clue soon

Amazing movie. Full of gems.

HonkTonkWoman,

So disappointed it’s not available for purchase or streaming…

iltoroargento,

My aunt got me a DVD a while back which is great, but I’ve had it on a drive for a while too lol

milkisklim,

To be fair, in the book the three musketeers were always Porthos, Athos, and Aramis. D’Artagnan joins the group and becomes their companion later on.

Should the book have been named the Four Musketeers? Probably. But hey, it’s French.

ArbitraryValue,

I figure the title is meant to be interpreted as “D’Artagnan and the Three Musketeers”. He’s the main character and the book is about his adventures with them. What does bother me is the total lack of muskets.

SpaceNoodle,

Plenty of ears, though.

dohpaz42,

Not if you keep waving that sword around so carelessly.

Hey! Watch it! 👂

jballs,

At least 8, if my math checks out.

pleb_maximus,

There are Muskets when they have lunch at a gate of the city they are besieging.

knatschus,

Naming it the Four Musketeers would have been a huge spoiler.

Mouselemming,

It’s about D’Artagnan’s journey to becoming a Musketeer, so calling it 4 Musketeers would be Spoilers! A better choice would be “The 3 Musketeers and I” which my old brain is hinting may have been the title of some film version…

Blackout,

I'm not sure where you get your information but I'm pretty sure their names are Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy. Pluto was just a dog in that movie.

Kolanaki, (edited )

Because he wasn’t actually a musketeer (not until the very end anyway). He was friends with the musketeers, but was basically just a regular guy off the street. A musketeer was some kind of position in the military/royal guard or whatever. He didn’t hold that position.

Anticorp,

No, because D’Artagnan wasn’t a member of the Musketeers.

milkisklim,

He becomes one by the end of the book. And spends the next two books as a member.

Anticorp,

Ah, I haven’t read the other two. I actually didn’t even know they existed until you told me just now. But for the first book he’s definitely just a friend of the Musketeers until the very end.
