Musketeer Questions

A few days ago I watched the Mickey, Donald, Goofy: The Three Musketeers movie from Disney. I noticed a few…things.

Why is it that most everyone looks like Goofy? When there is an average person/extra they look like Goofy. Is this because Goofy is a dominate gene? And along these lines, what about Goofy’s son, Max? We’ve never see the mother and we hardly see a love interest for Goofy. There’s Minnie and Mickey and Donald and Daisy, but the only one we see Goofy fall for is Clarabelle the cow. Is Clarabelle Max’s mother? If so, this could explain the genetics of the Disney universe. It would show that “Goofness” is a dominate trait.

Or it could be that Goofy is easier/more fun to draw.

It’s also funny how the two with love interests (Mickey and Donald) have nephews but the one with no love life (Goofy) has a son.

At one point, you are treated to an underwater scene. The moat is filled with skeletons–that’s weird enough for a Disney movie–but what interested me is that they were all human looking. What’s a bunch of human remains doing in a world filled with anthropomorphic animals? Did all the humans die out? Are Mikey, Donald, and the gang’s skeletons human-like? The skeletons didn’t even look like a cartoonish human-animal; they looked realistic human. Maybe the Pixar Theory about animals taking over is true.

Finally, why does everyone keep calling Mickey a runt? He’s a mouse the size of a duck (aka Donald). I wouldn’t be calling a mouse that big a runt. Donald isn’t called a runt. But, I get it. The whole point of the movie was that each character had a shortcoming they needed to overcome. Donald was a coward. Goofy was dumb. But, what about Mickey? What’s his shortcoming? Being nice? Courageous? Dedicated? So, you gotta go with runt.

It’s amazing how you can go back through a movie you’ve seen a million times and spot new things.

Have you seen the movie? What did you think about it? Do you have any theories or questions you want to share? Let’s discuss in the comments below.

Don’t forget to like, share, and follow.

Until the next wormhole…thanks for reading.

Just a Random Thought

Recently, I’ve noticed a pattern in the new Spider-Man movies: the titles. Spider-Man Homecoming. Spider-Man Far From Home. What’s the third Spidey movie going to be? Spider-Man Homeslice?

I could just see that one. Peter goes up to Tony and says, “Yo OS is so outdated even Captain America can use it.”

Anyway, sometimes I think about how different books or movies would be if they came out at a different time.

One of my favorites to ponder about is the Encyclopedia Brown series. If you’ve never heard of it, it’s about a boy who reads a lot and is very smart so he becomes a detective. To his friends he is like a walking encyclopedia.

So, I begin to wonder what the series would be like if it’d been created now. Would he be called Wikipedia Brown? Or would it be Google Brown? Would his friends be like, “No thanks, EB, we don’t need your help. OK Google, how can I prove Bugs Meany stole my bike?”

I then start thinking about some classic books, like The Time Machine.

When asked where the Time Traveler got his machine, instead of saying, “I built it,” would he say, “I got it on Amazon”?

And what about Around the World in 80 Days?

When Phileas Fogg says he’ll make it around the world in 80 days do the club members say, “We can do that in 80 hours with our private jets.” Or would it be, “Travel around the world? Ha, email can do that.”

How do you picture some older books or movies if they were created now?
