This was my favorite movie when I was four. Now that I'm older, I stillwatch it every once in awhile, even though there are movies I like better. The Three Caballeros is full of cute humor early in the movie, and therapport between Donald Duck and Joe Carioca is wonderful. The animatedshort `The Cold-Blooded Penguin' is *very* cute, and the song `Baia' is oneof my favorite Disney songs of all time. Then Panchito arrives, and afterthe wonderful `Three Caballeros' song, things start to go a little bitcrazy. The plot, such as it was, completely evaporates as Donald seems todescend into a girl-crazy madness. I'm not saying this is necessarily a badthing, however; the final part of the movie is very entertaining, eventhough it's odd at the same time. I gave this movie an 8 out of10.

The Synopsis for The Three Caballeros (1944) 720p
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!

I don't consider this one of the best of Disney, but I do think it is delightful and I also think it is a little better than Saludos Amigos. The Three Caballeros is a little too short and the opening scenes are a tad too coy for my liking, but it gets much better when and if you bear with it. The animation is stunning, with rich bold colours and the characters and backgrounds are beautifully realised. The music is also memorable and give real flavour to some of the scenes. There is also much to enjoy scenes wise, the title number is filled with energy, and You Belong to My Heart is lovely. As entertaining as Jose and Panchito are, what made the movie for me was Donald falls in love with Aurora(sister of Carmen) Miranda and gets caught up in the soundtrack. The whole scene is very charming and funny, and the animated choreography is incredible. Overall, a delightful film and worth seeing for more reasons than just historical value. 8/10 Bethany Cox
Walt Disney's outreach to the South American market resulted in a couple of films--SALUDOS AMIGOS was the first, and THE THREE CABALLEROS came next. To make a comparison, I'd have to see "SA" again, but I do recall that it had some charming musical sequences.
The same is true of THE THREE CABALLEROS, especially when the musical score includes the title song (delightully done by Panchito, Jose Carioca and Donald Duck), and repeated throughout, and ballads such as YOU BELONG TO MY HEART and HAVE YOU EVER BEEN TO BAIA? All of them are performed with some fantastic art work and animation combining live action and cartoon characters.
The last fifteen minutes seems to be scrambling for a way to keep the viewer's attention with some explosive fireworks and a dazzling display of surrealism, minus any conception of a way to end the movie on a high note. The film itself is uneven, offering typical Disney animation for the flying donkey sequence and then resorting to over-the-top fireworks that outdo the Pink Elephants number from DUMBO.
But it's hard to resist the bouncy South American flavor of the score and the charming characterizations of Donald, Panchito and Jose Carioca. The stylized conception of a Mexican Christmas by artist Mary Blair is a standout among the art work involved here, although later the pi?ata sequence is a bit overwhelming in effects.
The dazzling color and the music make it worth watching at least once, although it's hard to make a comparison between this and other Disney full-length features. Some of the action is fast and furious but the sort of thing that will appeal to very young children.
Summing up: You will either love it or hate it, but if you're a Disney fan you should see it at least once.
