The film consists of seven segments, each connected by a
common theme. In the film, it is Donald Duck's birthday (namely
Friday the 13th), and he receives three presents from friends
in Latin America. The first present is a film projector, which
shows him a documentary about birds. During the documentary, he
learns about the Aracuan Bird, who received his name because of
his eccentric song. The Aracuan also makes several appearances
throughout the film.
The next present is a book given to Donald by José. This
book tells of Bahia (spelled "Baía" in the film), which is one of
Brazil's 26 states. José shrinks them both down so that they can
enter the book. Donald and José meet up with several of the locals,
who dance a lively samba, and Donald ends up pining for one girl,
but fails. After the journey, Donald and José leave the book.
Upon returning, Donald realizes that he is too small to open
his third present. José shows Donald how to use "black magic" to
return himself to the proper size. After opening the present, he
meets Panchito, a native of Mexico. The trio take the name "The
Three Caballeros" and have a short celebration. Panchito then
presents Donald's next present, a piñata. Panchito tells Donald of
the tradition behind the piñata. José and Panchito then blindfold
Donald, and have him attempt to break open the piñata, which
eventually reveals many surprises. Donald ends the celebration by
being fired away by firecrackers in the shape of a ferocious toy
bull (with which the firecrackers are lit by José with his cigar).
Throughout the film, the Aracuan Bird appears at random moments.
He usually taunts everyone with his madcap antics, sometimes stealing
José's cigar and trying to make José jealous. His most famous gag
is when he re-routes a train that Donald and José are riding on by
drawing new tracks, causing the train to disassemble. He returns
three or four years later in Melody Time (1948).
