Storyline

Donald Duck and Jose Carioca, both literally blue, stumble across the Cafe do Samba, whose proprietor is determined to cheer them up with samba music. After they get their color back, they land in a giant brandy snifter, where a live-action woman is playing the tune on an organ. She also drums and dances a bit. The only dialogue is the lyrics of the song, sung by women. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Ethel Smith, Rockstar
12 November 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This cartoon was originally part of Melody Time. It's a lively, fun Donald Duck cartoon. Donald and his friend Jose Carioca are depressed so a weird bird that resembles Woody Woodpecker decides to cheer them up by introducing them to the samba. Some good animation with a little bit of live-action. The Dinning Sisters provide lovely vocals. It's pretty groovy stuff but not much more than an excuse to play samba music. My favorite part was Ethel Smith rocking out on the organ. She was having a blast! This isn't the best short from Melody Time or even particularly special but it's definitely upbeat. A fun way to pass six minutes.
