Episode Summary

The Three Caballeros
No one remembers Donald is the third member of the Three Caballeros, so he sets out to redefine himself as the star of the group. He hires an agent (a weasel, naturally) and adopts the hip hop image of "The Duck. formerly known as Donald." Donald's Fish Fry: Humphrey the Bear is told to catch a big fish to get him through the coming winter, but mistakenly snags the one that Donald has on the end of his line. How to Be Smart: Goofy tries to up his intelligence quotient.moreless

  • I hope The Three Caballeros don't perform in the Super Bowl.

    I slightly misjuged this show when I saw some of the episode "The Three Caballeros". I myself made up a story that they were actually a band in the 50's a-la Kingston Trio. The biggest momenet is when Jose, Panchito, and Donald (which is beyond forgotten, mind you) perform. Donald looks like a rapper rather than Prince, but then he's dressed-up as Carmen Miranda. After that, Donald Duck busts out of the dress...just to be exposed.

    And once the CD came out...Donald realized that his amigos aren't much his amigos. Donald...you're not the forgotten member, you're more forgotten in Mickey's Gang before you're forgotten in The Three Caballeros.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • "I can't believe nobody out there knew the Third Caballero is our own Donald Duck!" Mickey says. But Pumbaa knew it was Donald, so shouldn't that be almost nobody?

  • QUOTES (16)

    • Daisy: You didn't tell me you are one of the the capiccinos!

    • Daisy: I'm dating the third candleabra!

    • Announcer: A sure sign of smarts is ones ability to write, and the beginning writer is wise to choose a simple sentence.
      Goofy: (reads the sentence being written on the blackboard in front of him) "I am smart." How 'bout that? Hyuk!
      Announcer: The writer can bring more meaning to the sentence with the addition of an adverb.
      (Little Von Drake appears on the other side and changes the sentence.)
      Goofy: "I am not smart." Hey!
      Announcer: A conjunction allows an additional sentence segment to be linked.
      (Little Von Drake changes the sentence again.)
      Goofy: "I am not smart and I smell." You little--!
      Announcer: Don't be afraid to use other nouns as descriptors in your sentence.
      (Little Von Drake changes the sentence once more.)
      Goofy: "I am not smart and I smell like a monkey." That's it! (tries to chase Little Von Drake but trips)
      Announcer: Remember that sometimes the best sentence is the shortest.
      Goofy: "Ouch!"

    • Timon: "Who's the Third Caballero?" Ha! I don't wonder; I know. It's Simba.
      Pumbaa: But Timon, I always thought it was Donald Duck.
      Timon: Quiet Pumbaa, I'm tryin' to score points here!
      Pumbaa: I still think it's Donald Duck.

    • Goofy: Hmmm...the third caballero. Now, I know there's seven of 'em.

    • Goofy: Well...there's Cubby, Darlene and...I know, Annette!
      Mickey: Is that your final answer?

    • Mickey: Goodnight, folks! "The Mouse Currently Known as Mickey" will see 'ya real soon.

    • Censor Monkey #1: Blatant merchandising of Donald Duck on this program will not be tolerated.
      Weasel: Ah, but this is "The Duck Formerly Known as Donald" merchandise.
      Censor Monkey #2: Well, then, that's acceptable.

    • Mickey: (to Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum) The Three Caballeros are Panchito, Jose and...
      Tweedle Dum: Sneezy?
      Tweedle Dee: No, it's Grumpy! You're so dumb!
      Mike the Microphone: And now, put your hands together for the mouse who made red shorts, yellow shoes and white gloves a fashion statement--Mickey Mouse!

    • Bimbettes: He's super duper duck-ariffic!

    • (Ranger Woodlore snatches Humphry's Fish Stick with a fishing pole.)
      Ranger Woodlore: Sorry Humphry, but you know these are bad for you! As for me, I'm already a blob of fat.

    • Ranger Woodlore: Dinnertime! (lifts up lid to show a can of beans) Oh, beans again. (The fish lands on his plate, knocking the bean can away.) Why, it's raining grilled trout!

    • Ranger Woodlore: All right boys, get in line!

    • Mickey: I gotta get me an agent.

    • Mickey: (announcing "How to Be Smart") Just a reminder - coming up after this next cartoon, The Three Caballeros! (a "Duck Formerly Known As Donald" banner falls on him) Here's a cartoon Donald oughta watch.

    • Weasel: I'm the Duck's agent. Anything you have to say to the Duck, you can tell me, and I'll tell it to MY agent, who'll run it by our legal team, who will check back in with me, and I'LL talk to the Duck.

  • NOTES (1)


    • Agent Guy: He is now...
      Donald renames himself "The Duck Formerly Known as Donald," just like Prince-- that is "The Artist Formerly as... Prince."

    • Mickey: Is that your final answer?
