"The Three Caballeros," 1944 is an animated musical film produced by Walt Disney Productions which premiered in Mexico City on December 21, 1944, in the United States on February 3, 1945, and in the United Kingdom in March. The film focuses on a fantastic adventure which occurs through Latin America and is combination of both live-action and animation.
The film stars Donald Duck (voiced by Clarence Nash), who is joined by his old friend José Carioca, the cigar-smoking parrot from "Saludos Amigos," 1942 (representing Brazil); and later becomes friends with the pistol-packing rooster, Panchito Pistoles (representing Mexico). The film is laid out as a series of individual segments that are connected by Donald Duck opening birthday gifts from his Latin American friends. Several Latin American stars appear in the film including; singers Aurora Miranda (sister of Carmen Miranda) and Dora Luz, and the singer and dancer Carmen Molina.
Panchito's full name is Panchito Romero Miguel Junipero Francisco Quintero González III. Panchito or Pancho (as well as Paco or Paquito) are nicknames for Francisco, his fifth name. Panchito the rooster (who also rides on a horse called Señor Martinez) was animated by Ollie Johnston and Ward Kimball, and was voiced by Joaquin Garay.
José Carioca is a green Brazilian tropical parrot from Rio de Janeiro. His design is based on a parrot that Walt Disney spotted during his trip to Brazil. José is suave, cool, fun, and a ladies man. He was animated by Vladimir Tytla, Ward Kimball, Ollie Johnston, and Fred Moore. He was voiced by the Brazilian actor José Oliveira.
This is a spectacular original production animation cel of all three of The Three Caballeros: Donald Duck, José Carioca, and Panchito Pistoles. All three of the birds (duck, parrot, and chicken) are full figure, eyes and mouth open, and Donald has a great facial expression. It just doesn't get any better than this perfect vintage Disney image and would be a great addition to any animation art collection!
