YMMV / Saludos Amigos

  • Counterpart Comparison: José Carioca is compared a lot to Prince Naveen, as both are suave, handsome Brazilian-accentednote  gentlemen who play a guitarnote .
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Together with Panchito of The Three Caballeros, José has become a very iconic character among some crowds (because the general public doesn't really know about these movies).
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: While José appeared in a few Walt Disney's Comics and Stories in the states before becoming mostly forgotten about, he got his own (and currently ongoing) comic book series over in Brazil (where his given name is shortened to "Zé", which is the most common diminutive form of "José"). He's also a really popular character in comics of the Dutch Donald Duck magazine.
  • Heartwarming Moments: José's first meeting with Donald is a huge heartwarming moment. They've just politely traded cards, and José, upon seeing that he's talking to "Pato Donald," reacts with utter glee. When Donald goes in for a handshake, José glomps him in an embrace, welcomes him to Brazil, then begins rattling off a list of places he wants to show Donald. Then he does.
