Movie Info

Three Caballeros is the first Walt Disney feature to combine animation with live action footage. Originally conceived as World War II propaganda promoting good relations between the United States and Latin America, the film details the adventures of Donald Duck as he meets two Latin birds--Jose Carioca and Panchito,--and the three head down to Rio. The film doesn't have a concrete story, choosing to follow the three animated birds through Latin America, as they sing a number of songs, get into

That rare event, a Disney failure.

It's a gay, colorful, resplendent conceit.

A brilliant hodgepodge of Mr. Disney's illustrative art-a literal spinwheel of image, color and music which tumbles at you with explosive surprise.

No other Disney feature achieved this level of exuberant abstraction, or displayed the same sheer pleasure in the magic of the animator's art.

less of a propaganda piece and more of a narrative story

By far the strangest feature-length movie in the history of the Walt Disney Company, with virtually every new minute bringing something more insanely creative than the last.

This is one of the most dazzling achievements of the cartoon genre.

The two films are as artistically astonishing as they are culturally clueless.

The menu buttons are shaped like sombreros. I trust I needn't say more.

A wonderful blending of live action, animation and good South American music.

Particularly notable is the animated train travelling through a garden of real flowers.

[After the] headlong launch into that abstract fantasia of color and sound, it's difficult to deny the sexual nature of its characters' pelvic thrusts and rampant phallic imagery. Clearly, this is Disney's horniest animated feature.

Audience Reviews for The Three Caballeros

Great sights and sounds of South America made in this Walt Disney colourful, sweetly nostalgic, forties flavoured travelogue which highlights some of the more exotic cities of Latin America with my favourite Disney cartoon character, Donald Duck with Joe Carioca and Panchito the Charro Rooster as tour guides.

Number 2 From Compilation era

The animation is a bit more interesting then the previous film, and it does have it's fun moments throughout.

It's hard to give this era of films a long thorough review because when it comes down to it some shorts were fun and others weren't.

Next up: Make Mine... hmm third word that begins with M what could it possibly be.

A dazzling display of early Disney animation and colour that takes Donald on one of his most grand adventures to date. The film is definitely one of Disney's most unique, daring, educational, and enjoyable films. It holds a neat collection of Spanish musical numbers and interesting portrayals of real-life people and scenery. It also adds to the experience with the usage of guns, cigars, scantly-clad women, and curse words. These aspects of the film would never be allowed in a children's cartoon in the modern day. Ultimately, the film is upbeat, funny, and quite informative in its own special way.
