The above photo features the Three Caballero releases of Donald Duck, José Carioca , Panchito and the Opening Title (with artwork inspired by Mary Blair). They were released in August, 1995 and retired in April, 1996. I keep hoping the WDCC would do a sculpture featuring all three on the carpet but in the meantime, I'm making due with a cool serape my friend Tim from MN sent me, to give that effect.
Over the years, I've added a Harmony Kingdom Chili Pepper box, part of a salt and pepper set featuring them on the carpet (wishful thinking
) and my latest addition, the Margarita glass from Aribbas Brothers in the Mexican Pavilion in Epcot, featuring them engraved in the bowl of the glass atop a green cactus stem.The film premiered in Mexico City on December 21, 1944. It was released in the United States on February 3, 1945. The film received two Academy Award nominations for Original Music Score and Best Sound. The film starred Donald Duck, who in the course of the film is joined by old friend José Carioca, the cigar-smoking parrot from Saludos Amigos (1942) representing Brazil and later makes a new friend in the persona of pistol-packing rooster Panchito Pistoles, representing Mexico.
