Species bird

The Aracuan Bird (pronounced AIR-uh-kwan) is a wacky South American bird of an undetermined species who appears in the Disney animated feature films The Three Caballeros and Melody Time, and in a few Donald Duck cartoons where he drove Donald crazy.



The Aracuan Bird is an odd species of tropical bird (even described in the film Donald was watching that first revealed it to him as "one of the most eccentric birds ever seen") that got personalize first name from a song that it sings. It has the power to do the impossible (this includes, but is not limited to, simple cartoon antics like reaching out of a film reel image to shake someone's hand). It is aforesaid to exist seen everywhere, most notably South America.


Aracuan Bird is a pink bird with red hair, yellow beak and red tail feathers, white shirt with blue stripes (first appeared while wearing a yellow-and-green striped bathing-suit while swimming), orange legs. He has a Woody Woodpecker-like facial expression.


Aracuan Bird has a wacky, high-pitched, sped-up voice, done by Goofy's voice actor Pinto Colvig. Colvig also provided the Aracuan's distinctive song in The Three Caballeros and Clown Of The Jungle. Today, Frank Welker provides his wacky, high-pitched, speedy voice, but without the use of the distinctive 'Aracuan bird song'. The Aracuan does not speak, but only gives out vocal effects.

His first appearance, the Aracuan is contractual in the "Aves Arras" film Donald receives in his birthday gifts. His clownish nature continues throughout the sequence after his introduction and advanced on when Donald and Jose are traveling to Bahia on a train, he draws many tracks for the different train carts to follow with a piece of chalk.

While traveling through the jungle to photograph rare birds, Donald runs afoul of the Aracuan, who keeps thwarting his attempts to photograph him and other birds.

Donald is skeptical about the entire thing. Donald then tries to get rid of the Aracuan Bird and during his performance tries to dart him. Instead, Donald accidentally darts everyone in the club except the Aracuan Bird and Aurora. As the show ends the Aracuan Bird begins to make his way home, sad that he has to leave, until Mickey offers him to stay at the club with them.

During the episode, the Aracuan disguises himself as Jafar, Pluto, Goofy, Donald, and Mickey.
