Jose Carioca

Just a fun comparison between an early version of Jose Carioca (possibly drawn by J.P. Miller during the El Groupo trip to South America) and his final appearance in the 1943 film Saludos Amigos.
Fred Moore finalized the design and animated numerous beautiful scenes with this character.

More on Fred's work for Saludos Amigos and The Three Caballeros here:


  1. I never seen this cartoon, I saw on the bonus disc of "Cinderella" The Art of Marry Blair, the 2005 edition, but thank you for sharing and can you post more artworks of Bambi wen he was a adolescent.

    1. What do you think of the live action version of "Beauty and the Beast", Andreas.

    2. Check out the documentary "Walt & el Grupo" if you're interested in Saludos Amigos and the Three Caballeros

    3. I don't know what recommend is i never tried, im sorry. 😔

  2. That drawing is DEFINITELY by Jack Miller. There is another version of this photo that actually shows his signature.
