  • The title translates to "Watercolor of Brazil", and that's how it starts: with a paintbrush rendering the flora and fauna of Brazil (which oddly overlap) in water colors. A flower becomes Donald Duck, who is soon joined by the very cool parrot José Carioca, who introduces Donald to the city, the language, a local cafe, and - inadvertently - a drunken bee.

  • While the music "Aquarela do Brasil" by Ary Barroso is sung by Aloysio Oliveira, a paintbrush makes a tribute to the beauties of Brazil. Donald Duck arrives and meets José "Zé" Carioca, a native from Rio de Janeiro. Zé Carioca gives a Brazilian hug in Donald and invites him in Portuguese to visit places in Rio de Janeiro. However, Donald cannot understand the language and Zé Carioca repeats the invitation in English. They go to the famous sidewalk in Copacabana; then they go (probably) to Cinelândia to drink cachaça, and Donald ends the night dancing with Carmen Miranda in the Cassino da Urca.
