Panchito Pistoles is a gun slinging quarterback for the Aviators Football Team. With a iron-rooster mentality and several appearances in Disney’s House of Mouse, none of his performances have been mentioned alongside stories of Brett Favre or Tony Romo. Yet, his strong arm and unpredictability have coined him as a “gunslinger“.
In relation to that thought, his performance and the film, The Three Caballeros, in its entirety are quite bizarre and erratic. It is made up of several shorts with no narrative bonds that have Panchito popping out of a present, applauding a kinship with Donald Duck and Jose Carioca, and ending with him disappearing into the confetti and colors scattered across the screen by the breaking of a pinata.
Later he appeared in several Disney comics, including Don Rosa’s The Three Caballeros Ride Again and The Magnificent Seven (minus four) Caballeros.
Even before the Mickey Mouse Athletics League was formed, Panchito was friends with Quack Pack member, Donald Duck, and Aviators teammate, Jose Carioca. He and Jose actually visited Donald in Duckburg in “The Three Caballeros [Return]”, which ruined their chances in becoming part of the Quack Pack football team. His involvement with the Aviators football team is due to his love for Aviators team captain, Clara Cluck.

Panchito was the only one of the three caballeros never to appear in Saludos Amigos, in fact, he did not exist yet when the 1943 movie was released.
