A traditionally-animated film by Creator/DreamWorksAnimation. ''The Road to El Dorado'' follows the adventures of Spaniards Tulio and Miguel as they try to con and cheat their way to fame and fortune. A game of chance earns them a TreasureMap which seems to point the way to El Dorado: the lost "CityOfGold."

According to the producers, after seeing so many animated features whose heroes were upstaged by more memorable sidekicks, they decided to just cut out the typical "hero" characters and center the film on ThoseTwoGuys in the first place. Essentially, the end result is a cartoon version of ''Theatre/RosencrantzAndGuildensternAreDead''. With the plot of ''Literature/TheManWhoWouldBeKing.'' With songs by Music/EltonJohn, reunited with lyricist Music/TimRice and composer Music/HansZimmer after all three had worked on [[Disney/TheLionKing another little animated movie]].
