Three Caballeros Panchito, Donald and Jose Airborne Amigos
That quixotic quackster Donald Duck journeys into South America with dapper Josï¿½ Carioca from Brazil and ebullient Panchito the Mexican rooster as his tour guides. Panchito graciously invites his two amigos to accompany him on ï¿½a nice little trip to Mexico on the magic serape.ï¿½ This multi-colored magic carpet sweeps the birds-of-a-feather trio over the beautiful land of song, dance and romance. Panchito, Josï¿½ (who was introduced in Saludos Amigos) and Donald were animated throughout The Three Caballeros by, among others, Ollie Johnston, Ward Kimball and John Lounsbery, so itï¿½s obvious Walt Disney wanted his most magnï¿½fico talent to bring these animated stars to the screen. Plussed with pewter spurs on Panchito and a pewter ribbon on Donaldï¿½s hat, this muy grande sculpture embodies the fun and fiesta spirit of this animated carnivale of animated delights
José Carioca is a playboy parrot, and if there's one thing he loves more than the ladies, it's his native land of Brazil. So it's his pleasure to become Donald Duck's suave tour guide. Whether they visit the seaside village of Baìa or the capital city, Rio de Janeiro, he's determined to show Donald that his land's greatest treasure might just be the samba. Both a dance and a musical rhythm, the samba is not unlike José himself: Mix one part bouncy beat, two parts tropical tempo, and three parts Rio romance, and you've got a melody shaken purely for fun.
PANCHITO: "Iiieeee-ah-ah!" cries Panchito, the singing red rooster gaucho (cowboy) from Mexico. The third of the Three Caballeros, he treats his pals Donald Duck and José Carioca to a trip through Mexico on his magic serape (Mexican blanket). Proud of his beloved country, he makes the mistake of bringing them to Acapulco Beach, where Donald goes ga-ga for the local bathing beauties. So Panchito and his blanket swoop down to carry the rambunctious duck away before he gets too ... carried away.
