While I understand the enthusiasm for this show, I don't really get why everybody is going gaga over the quality of the animation. What you guys are liking is the traditional character design. The animation itself is very stiff and rigid, and clearly not pure hand-drawn animation but more a hybrid of hand-drawn and 2D puppetry (likely animated in Flash). I also spy much tweening.

If you guys like this what then do you find wrong in Mercury Filmworks' work on the current Mickey Mouse series? :? This is no more prestigious than that, and I think Mercury's animation moves better and is vastly superior to the one in this ultra low-budget production.

In my case, yes, I guess what I like the most is the classic Disney character design and style of animation. But the animation itself is not bad either, in my opinion. It's not as good as the 2D in Disney's feature films, but quite good for a TV program. Perhaps the mix of animation techniques in some parts of the show is what makes it look a bit cheap compared to other similar productions.

Isn't this show by Mercury Filmworks too? Anyway, I don't think the animation in the new Mickey Mouse shorts is bad. Not even the animation style. I just don't find it appealing personally.

Mercury Filmworks and Atomic Cartoons worked on it too but Six Point Harness was the primary studio responsible for animation production.

OK, thanks.

Here are two songs from the show:

"Moai Vacation"
"Goblin Jail"

^This.

I figured I was in the minority here. While I'm definitely enjoying this show along with the more traditional character designs, I'd personally prefer to see more stylization done when utilizing limited animation, like in the aforementioned Mickey shorts or the new DuckTales.

Regardless, I'm all for another adventure series within the Disney duck universe. This sometimes feels like a long-lost House of Mouse spin-off. Jose and Panchito are fun characters and it's great to see them revived. April, May, and June are cynical little mini-Daisys. :lol: It feels a little odd that Xandra is a human(oid), but given that she's a goddess it's understandable and it works. Overall, this sort of feels like an obscure [albeit non-existent] 1950s-60s comic with some updates added for a modern audience (if that even make sense, I don't know?).

I'm still scratching my head over why/how this was made when it feels like Disney doesn't believe it has an audience. :?

Great! This will certainly make my sister happy. She loves Donald Duck, and "The Three Caballeros" is one of her favorite Disney movies ever.

I'm glad about that. I guess it's unlikely, but it would be great if they made a second season.

Quote:
Donald’s latest TV venture is also one of his most thrilling. Legend of The Three Caballeros reunites Disney’s top duck with his two amigos from The Three Caballeros (1945). In this animated series, Donald releases Xandra, the Goddess of Adventure, from an enchanted Atlas. Suddenly the Duck, José Carioca, and Panchito find themselves battling mythical monsters around the globe, from the Egyptian pyramids to Mount Rushmore. Legend of The Three Caballeros is expected to be available on Disney+ when Disney’s new direct-to-consumer streaming service launches on November 12, catapulting Donald into a new level of groundbreaking television stardom.

Disney has upload the panel for "Legend of the Three Caballeros". It's really interesting. I love how Donald's voice actor thanked the staff for respecting Walt's legacy and keeping the original design of the characters.

This is another show I need to catch up on. Love the props the Donald actor gave.

Thanks for posting, Sotiris! It's great that they're uploading these D23 panels now that most people are confined to their homes and have more time to watch things.

I saw the whole show all the way through. It was great! I loved all the inside references made there.

I went to the screening for the movie in Orlando, where they showed this panel. Just like there, very few people were familiar with the show at our screening, which I'm not surprised by. It's a cute show, but Disney is not advertising it at all.

I was mostly curious to see why the showrunners decided to ignore Carl Barks' lore in this series, and they bring up a good point that the McDuck side of Donald's family has been very well detailed, but not so much his father's side. I am still surprised that Huey, Dewey, and Louie were totally ignored for April, May, and June, but they worked out pretty well anyway.

I just watched the first four episodes and I really love this show! It's so nice to see hand-drawn animation done well rather than the typical cheap animated series projects that television is fraught with.

The only reason I knew about this show is because of this forum here. I've never seen it promoted anywhere else.

Do you mean a screening for the original Three Caballeros movie which had a panel for this show or was there some film version of this show compiled together?

I'm glad April, May and June were included as well. We rarely ever see them and Huey, Dewey and Louie are overexposed anyway. It's interesting that this show basically pretends that the original films of Saludos Amigos and The Three Caballeros never occurred since Donald has no idea who Jose and Panchito are when he meets them here in the first episode. Which I can't exactly blame so I don't care at all for Donald's characterization in those films so it's nice for that to be retconned away. I remember even critics back then were not a fan of how sexually manic Donald came across as.

It was a screening of the original film, as presented by D23. It was a good time, and fun to see classic Walt-era animation on the big screen. They showed a Donald short with the Aracuan bird beforehand, and it even came with a pin set featuring different characters from he film.

I enjoy the film, but I think it goes off the rails near the end. It's great to see visually, but yeah, extra horny Donald is a weird take. The show, from what I recall, is kind of a remake of the general concept from the film, which is why he doesn't recall Jose and Panchito.

Wow, glad you got to have that experience! It sounds absolutely thrilling especially with that pin set.

At first I thought the show would be set in a universe like House of Mouse where Donald already knows Jose and Panchito so I didn't expect him to not recognize them at all and vice-versa but I do like the change. As for The Three Caballeros film, I like the music and visuals a lot. Wish Donald was portrayed as a more likable character but at least Disney never treated him like that again since.

It was my second D23 screening. I went to one for Tangled a few years ago. tbh, like you, it's not one of my favorites, but I went for two reasons, one being that the movie, and Rapunzel in particular was my girlfriend at the time's everything, and it was right around her birthday. The other reason was that Dave Smith from the Disney Archives was going to be there to do a presentation on the history of WDAS' features, which was awesome! We got a scroll with concept art of the characters, and even got to meet him at the end. We had the option to have him sign our scrolls, but we passed because he didn't have anything to do with the production of the film.

That was in 2017, which was my only year as a gold member before this one. I wanted to go to the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh screening from that year, especially since Jim Cummings was there (keep in mind that I didn't know about his, um... less flavorful qualities at the time), but that sold out before I could. I hope that more events will happen this year, but I wouldn't be surprised if they don't. I at least want to go to the Destination D festival in November, but we'll see what happens by then.
