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>

Entertaining if rather unexceptional
27 February 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Out of the seven segments featured on "Melody Time" this was my least favourite. I didn't hate it, but it wasn't as good as it could've been. The animation was decent if a little basic, even better though was the lively samba music, it really does make you want to dance. Donald is good here, he doesn't speak but he dances quite well, same with his green parrot buddy. What didn't impress me as well was that the pacing was a little too fast in places, and some of the editing in the latter half looked rather static, and Ethel Smith didn't impress me for reasons I cannot explain.

Overall, entertaining but rather hit and miss. 7/10 Bethany Cox
