Three Caballeros, a new look

The first half of the movie is a more or less conventional series of
sequences. Donald Duck receives birthday presents from his Latin
American friends that include a film projector and a reel of film, plus
a book about Brazil. Donald sets up the projector then guides our
viewing responses as we watch with him the tale of a mal-adapted
penguin from the South Pole who looks for warmer climes further north.
We are also introduced to an array of other Latin American birdlife,
and are told the story of a Uruguayan flying donkey. So far, so Disney.

Jon at the Latin American On Screen blog looks at Walt Disney’s The Three Caballeros and its effect on American views of Latin America. Only thing I can say about this article is that I wish it was longer.

    Thanks for the encouragement! Will be posting thoughts on Saludos Amigos and Herbie Goes Bananas before long. Suggestions of other Disney movies featuring Latin America most welcome…
