As might be expected from the title and the two con-artists traveling plotline, the film is heavily influenced by the BingCrosby, BobHope, and Dorothy Lamour series of ''Film/RoadTo'' films of the 1940s.

* LighterAndFluffier: The plot of the movie is based on Rudyard Kipling's "The Man Who Would Be King," which was made into a live action movie with Sean Connery and Michael Caine. The original story and the live adaptation are significantly darker. The protagonists are violent and ruthless VillainProtagonist s for starters who will do anything to scam the tribe, a sharp contrast to the likable Antiheroes of this film who treat the natives nicely and even started the whole thing primarily out of fear.

Added DiffLines:

* AmazingTechnicolorWildlife: Of all kinds. Particularly of note are the animals seen within El Dorado, including gigantic catfish and tall, but friendly, flightless birds. TruthInTelevision for a tropical rain forest envronment!


Added DiffLines:

* HorseOfADifferentColor: While the main characters do have an actual horse, the people of El Dorado appear to have domesticated gigantic sea turtles that they ride on in the aqueducts through the city.

** Even ''more'' confusing when Miguel and Tulio first find the entrance to El Dorado...and, not seeing the city itself, Tulio remarks that El Dorado must mean "Very Large Rock" in the native language. "El Dorado" is a Spanish term, not a Mesoamerican one. The main characters speak Spanish, but apparently don't recognize a simple Spanish term, mistaking it for a term in the native language of the city...which refers to itself by that same Spanish term.
