Three Caballeros is a melange of various bits, ranging in quality from rather dull to excitingly creative. It starts out with a couple of ordinary cartoon shorts but then heats up considerably with the introduction of the Brazilian charmer, Joe Carioca. With the exception of two short limited animation segments, the rest of the film is wonderful. There is some fine work in which the animated characters are incorporated into live-action musical sequences. There is also much inventive kaleidoscopic animation, every bit as good as the pink elephant scene in Dumbo. This is one of the best animated feature films.

The Synopsis for The Three Caballeros (1944) 1080p
A large box arrives for Donald on his birthday, three gifts inside. He unwraps one at a time, and each takes him on an adventure. The first is a movie projector with a film about the birds of South America; Donald watches two cartoons, one tells of a penguin who longs to live on a tropical isle and the other about a gaucho boy who hunts the wild ostrich. The second gift is a pop-up book about Brazil. Inside is Jose Carioca, who takes Donald to Brazil's Bahia for a mix of animation and live action: the two cartoon birds sing and dance with natives. The third gift is a pi?ata, accompanied by Panchito. A ride on a magic serape takes the three amigos singing and dancing across Mexico. ?Olé!

Moments of brillianceReviewed bydhogVote: 9/10
The 7th animated Disney classic is clearly not one of Disney's best works. Nevertheless, it is one of their most different. I guess I can say that this movie has something to offer.
This must have been the very first movie that combines live-action with animation... or at least one of the first movies to do so. This combination works out reasonably, but some movies are more successful in this "marriage": for example, "Who Framed Roger Rabbit", "Pete's Dragon", "Mary Poppins" and the documentary "Man, Monsters and Mysteries". As much as this is true, it isn't any less true that this combination in "The Three Caballeros" works out clearly better than in "Space Jam", for example.
Without being a super movie and despite the fact that this movie doesn't age as well as most Disney animated classics ("Pinocchio", "Fantasia", "Bambi", "The Aristocats", "Robin Hood", "The Rescuers", "The Fox and the Hound", "The Little Mermaid", among many others...), it is however a curious and peculiar little film.
The most interesting thing about this movie is that it takes us through Latin America, mostly Brazil and Mexico.
The story takes place on Donald Duck's birthday and he receives lots of presents: shorts about tropical Latin America, different kinds of birds, etc... and he's joined by José Carioca aka Zé Carioca (the green parrot) and later by Panchito Pistoles (the pistol-packing red rooster). José Carioca represents Brazil and takes Donald Duck to Baía, while Panchito represents Mexico and takes both Donald Duck and Zé Carioca to Mexico.
During its last 15 minutes more or less, the movie gets gradually less interesting, becoming somewhat empty and lame, with things that don't make much sense to me.
By the way, this movie has some fabulous artwork. The "three caballeros" are very well designed (Donald Duck is very well drawn now) and the artwork of Latin America is spectacular. For example, Baía is very beautifully drawn, with gorgeous sunset, life, great monuments and a romantic atmosphere at the sound of a beautiful song with the same name as the city/village.
There's also some great voice actors: the inimitable Clarence Nash as Donald Duck, José Oliveira as José Carioca and Joaquin Garay as Panchito. Just for the record, Joaquin Garay is the father of Joaquin Garay III (Paco from "Herbie Goes Bananas").
As we continue on this Latin American Disney adventure, the 1944 animated film "The Three Caballeros" should be mentioned, at least. Here, we have Donald Duck taking center stage in this movie, along with two other bird characters: Jose, and Panchito.
In this movie, we see four short segments that take us from Antarctica all the way up to close to here (Mexico). What makes this movie so impressive? The Spanish (and maybe the Portuguese), of course! What great way to say "Disney = It's Educational!" than to watch a movie immersed in the culture, history, and of course, the languages, of Latin America!
Now, I say, this is very impressive Disney. What I just mentioned, plus the magic that our man, Walt Disney, has provided here makes "The Three Caballeros" one of the animated greats. Again, iDiez estrellas!
