Dog in Boots (Russian: Пёс в сапогах, Pyos v sapogakh), also known as Pup in Boots is a 1981 Soyuzmultfilm's animated parody film directed by Yefim Gamburg. It is a musical adaptation of the classic 1844 Alexandre Dumas story of d'Artagnan and The Three Musketeers.Dog in Boots parodies costume and historical drama films, particularly the musical miniseries d'Artagnan and Three Musketeers (1978) that was incredibly popular in the Soviet Union. The concept of this film is similar to the 1981 series Dogtanian and the Three Muskehounds: the main characters are dogs, while Cardinal Richelieu's evil guards and Milady are cats.The novelization Pyos v sapogakh, ili Novye priklyucheniya treh mushketerov (lit. "Dog in boots, or New Adventures of the Three Musketeers") for children, authored by Vladimir Valutskiy, was published by Strekoza Press in 2004. In 2006 TVIK-LIREK released an audiobook CD based on Valutskiy's story. In 2009 Dog in Boots was fully restorated by Krupny Plan and released on DVD as a part of Full Picture and Sound Restoration series.
