The Three Caballeros (1945)

One of Disney’s most expressionistic, unknown early masterpieces and first-ever attempt at live-action/animation conjecture, T3C is a fantasia of pure Latinx flavors and cinematic ecstasy-trip like nothing we’ve otherwise seen – a beautiful, joie-de-vivre, dreamlike mirage of merengue. 8.9/10.

Plot Synopsis: Comical mixture of animation and live action featuring Donald Duck in four short stories as he travels around South America. En route, Donald meets a flying donkey and Pablo the Penguin, who hates the cold. Disney’s first attempt at combining live action with animation was nominated for two Academy Awards.
