The name of the village is spelled and pronounced as Santa Poco in the movie and soundtrack. This is grammatically incorrect, as "santa" is a feminine word and "Poco" is masculine, and since in Spanish the genders should match, the proper spelling is Santo Poco, though San Poco would actually be the correct form used in Mexican Spanish, due to other conventional rules regarding the letters with which a name begins.

When the three amigos are singing by the campfire, and all the animals are gathering near, you can see the shadow of a crew member on the right side of the screen. See more »
I can't believe what a low rating this movie has on here! This is one of the most classic comedies of all time. If for some reason you haven't seen this movie, go rent it and watch it! Me and my friends use quotes from this movie all the time. This movie is definitely on my top ten for comedies. 5 out of 5.
