Product Description


As a Disney oddity, they don't get much odder than Three Caballeros. Donald Duck receives a birthday package from South America, and the film proceeds to unravel like some peyote-induced hallucination. It starts out reminiscent of other Disney films, where shorts are cobbled together, such as "Make Mine Music" or "Fun and Fancy Free". The film has vignettes such as "The Cold-blooded Penguin" and "The Flying Guachito". After them it careens into part-travelogue, part-stream-of-consciousness animation. Not helping out much are Donald's "friends": Joe Carioca (a parrot) and Panchito (a rooster). They spend most of the rest of the film watching Donald chase skirt. That's right, Donald Duck is a wolf in this movie, and he chases every live-action señorita who bustles across the screen. Although some will say otherwise, Caballeros is for die-hard Disney, Donald or psychedelia fans only. --Keith Simanton,

Product Description

Walt Disney Studios first feature film to combine live action and animation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining Fun 20 Nov 2002
By A Customer
The Three Caballeros is Not one of Disney's most well known films, but that does not mean it is a bad film. UNlike most Disney offerings it does not have a hero or villain and the story is not like a Tolkien epic but it is over an hour of fun with Donald DUck on his birthday with two of his South American friends José Carioca and Panchito.
The film is made up of four main sections including a story about Pablo a penguin who wanted to venture to warmer climates. The second section is about a Gauchito who finds a flying donkey. The last two main sections feature Donald Pabchito and José.
It is filled with dance and music, the animation (for its time is superb) and the scenes where the three characters dance with Aurora Miranda and the other South Americans are sensational.
There is barely a minute without something worth watching truly a Disney classic.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I couldnt believe that I found this! I have been describing this film to people for years and no-one believed me. I saw it in infant school every christmas and it formed a subconcious love of samba. Its a little like an acid trip in rio so god knows what other subconcious thoughts were planted. Watch it, its a trip.

The second film to emerge from Walt Disney's goodwill/diplomatic tour of South America (ostensibly bringing a group of animators to look for inspiration on a goodwill tour as part of the Good Neighbor policy but also to gather intelligence to dissuade those neighbors from siding with the Nazis) is much more ambitious and more fully realised on every level than Saludos Amigos, its somewhat cobbled together and much shorter predecessor, though you might not suspect it at first. 1944's The Three Caballeros initially promises to be more of the same - a compilation of loosely connected shorts with linking animation and travelogue footage - before hitting some amazing psychedelic highs that rival Fantasia for unbridled animation and make you wonder if the whole Disney animation department was high on peyote. There's a stronger framework, with Donald Duck elevated to leading man in his own full-length feature receiving a parcel full of presents from south of the border. Initially this means watching a couple of stories - the story of Pablo, the penguin who can't stand the cold, and a boy and his flying burrito - on the home movie projector he finds inside, but rather than simply stringing more short films together, linking them with home movie travelogue footage and calling it a movie, this goes off in ever more visually and anarchic directions as Joe Carioca and, later, Panchito the charro rooster take Donald on a tour of South America, both animated and live action. From then on it's a real trip in every sense of the word, an almost stream-of-consciousness swirl of colors, music and movement that makes the elephants on parade dream scene from Dumbo look like documentary naturalism - at one point Donald even gets turned into the film's soundtrack.

3.0 out of 5 stars Donald Duck's South American Goodwill Project 16 July 2002
By A Customer
A follow up to the previously released 'Saludos Amigos', this was Disney's second attempt at goodwill relations with South America. The main problem with this film is that it is too episodic. The very thin continuity plot of Donald Duck's birthday soon becomes wearing and, too a degree, highly irrelevant to the set pieces. This is not say however, that the film is without merit. It provides (in places) a nice, if somewhat Disney-fied (and dated) insight into South American life and culture, and is at times, highly entertaining. Whilst not a classic in the same league as say 'Snow White' or 'Beauty & The Beast', it is still worthy of a viewing.

When released in 1944 this film was hyped as the first time live action and animation had been mixed in the same scenes. There are times when it is apparent this was an emergent technique but it is very successful.
Around the loose story of birthday presents for Donald Duck’s we enjoy a riot of creative and glorious colour animation, dancing and singing with two new friends for Donald, Jose Carioca who was introduced in “Saludos Amigos” and his friend Panchita (a Mexican charro rooster). Also Pablo the penguin who travels from the South Pole to a tropical island in his bath is a little gem. And yes, Aurora Miranda is Carmen Miranda’s sister, doing a pretty good job of imitating her sibling.
I have always enjoyed this lesser known Disney film which has stood the test of time with its bright rhythmic music and superb animation.

Great fun that fairly takes one back! It's also interesting in the way it shows the USA's fondness for all things Latin American at that time.
