Jose Carioca

Jose Carioca is one of the fun loving parrots from Walt Disney's 'The Three Caballeros.' He can also be found in other films such as 'Saludos Amigos,' 'Mickey's House of Villains,' 'Melody Time,' 'Mickey's Magical Christmas: Snowed in at the House of Mouse,' and he even has a cameo in 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit?' He has also appeared in television shows such as 'Mickey Mouse Works,' 'House of Mouse,' and 'Walt Disney Anthology Series,' He can finally be seen in various merchandise such as books, toys, pins, a vinylmation, and clothing.

He makes his home in Brazil during most of his appearances and Disney Town in a few others. His close friends are Donald Duck, Panchito Pistoles, Goofy, Mickey Mouse, Ludwig Von Drake, and Minnie Mouse. While his enemies include all Disney villains, he especially has a strong dislike for The Aracuan Bird.

Jose is a green parrot with a yellow beak, a blue and red tail, and yellow feet. He wears a yellow dress jacket, a white button up undershirt, a black bow tie, a yellow and black hat, and he wears yellow gloves. He is quite the prankster and loves life. He is the Johnny Depp of parrots, all the ladies love him, and he is very smooth and confident.

He has been voiced by two people over the years: Rob Paulsen and Jose Oliveira. Walt Disney came up with this character on a Brazilian trip when he saw a tropical parrot on a sight seeing tour. If you haven't seen 'Saludos Amigos,' 'The Three Caballeros,' or 'Melody Time,' I highly recommend to everyone that they should go check them out.

Jose can be found on a very rare basis as a meet and greet character, except for at Tokyo Disneyland where he can be found on a regular basis. He can also be found at the Grand Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros in Epcot, and at Disney's All-Star Music Resort in WDW. He also makes an appearance in Hong Kong Disneyland's It's a Small World. Finally he can be found in Disneyland during Mickey's Soundsational Parade.
