He first appeared alongside Donald in Disney's 1943 animated feature film Saludos Amigos.
The Aracuan Bird sees them both and introduces them to the Samba, which manages to cheer up both José and Donald.
José makes a notable appearance in the animated series Mickey Mouse Works in the short "Mickey Tries to Cook".
José is also the best friend of Panchito Pistoles who, despite being the most rambunctious and unpredictable of the three, shares José's charisma and prosperity.
To find a new market to make up for this, Walt Disney focused on the South American market and used José Carioca to help promote this.
José is practically Donald's opposite, in that he is suave, cool and good under pressure.
Nevertheless, José is jovial and always excited to learn new things, having had an enjoyable trip despite the misunderstandings. José introduces himself and seems to be a big fan of Donald Duck and his cartoons.
In the film Saludos Amigos, José appears in the final segment, Aquarela do Brasil (translated as Watercolors of Brazil). José gives Donald a tour of Brazil and offers cachaça at a restaurant.
José then watches as Donald attempts to break open the piñata.
