    The Three Caballeros Original Storyboard Artwork (Walt Disney, 1944).
    The Three Caballeros was produced as part of the studio's good will message for South America. The film again stars Donald Duck, who in the course of the film is joined by old friend, José Carioca, the cigar-smoking parrot from Saludos Amigos, representing Brazil, and later makes a new friend in the persona of a pistol-packing rooster Panchito Pistoles, representing Mexico. The Three Caballeros, directed by Norman Ferguson, premiered in Mexico on 12/21/41 and in the U.S. on 2/3/45. From The Three Caballeros we have a fantastic piece of vintage animation art in the form of a storyboard. A storyboard is a graphic representation of how the film will unfold, shot by shot. It's made up of a number of panels with illustrations or pictures representing each shot and what's going on in the scene. This storyboard shows the three characters in their classic singing pose. The piece measures 8.25" x 6" with the characters taking up most of the panel. Production art from The Three Caballeros is considered very rare. The storyboard was rendered in Conté crayon on paper. This vintage artwork is over 75 years old! The piece has a small tear in the top center outside of the image area. Otherwise, Good condition.
