Donald Duck: What's this?
Panchito: What's this?
Panchito: This is your gift from Mexico, Donald: a pinata!
Donald Duck: Oh, boy, oh, boy, a pinata!... What's a pinata?
Panchito: A pinata is full of surprises. Presents. It's the very spirit of Christmas.
Donald Duck: Christmas!
Donald Duck: Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way...
Panchito: Oh, no, no, Donald! For goodness sake, not "Jingle Bells". In Mexico, they sing "Las Posadas".

Narrator: What a time two toucans have making love. When they're beak-to-beak, they can't get cheek-to-cheek, because when one toucan turns his head, only one toucan can.

Prof. Holloway: And so, as the warm, tropical sinks slowly in the west, we leave little Pablo, a bird in paradise, a picture of health in his new coat of tan. He should be the happiest penguin in the world.
Prof. Holloway: Only, sometimes he gets to thinking...
Narrator: Never satisfied. Well, that's human nature for you, even if you're a penguin.
Donald Duck: You're absolutely right.

Panchito: Did you know that the history Mexico is in her flag? Oh, yes. You see, many hundreds of years ago, the god of the Aztecs commanded them to build a big city where they would find an eagle destroying a serpent. But when they find this eagle, he was sitting on a cactus, on top of a rock, way out in the middle of a lake. Caramba, to build a city here would be almost impossible. But they built and built and built some more, until today, believe or not, the lake is full of Mexico City.

Jose Carioca: Have you been to Baia, Donald?
Donald Duck: No.
Jose Carioca: Well, let's go!

Jose Carioca: You kill my head!

Donald Duck: Hello, my sweet little bathing beauties!

Panchito: This custom takes place on each of the nine days before Christmas. Each evening, the children gather at the village church and form a procession, symbolizing the journey of Mary and Joseph from Nazareth to Bethlehem. The little ones carry images of the saints from house to house, singing a plea for shelter, or posada. A reply comes from within, "No posada. No shelter." Looking sad and downhearted, they try again. But the reply is still the same: "No shelter. No posada." They repeat the song time after time, and always they are refused, until at last they finally reach a house, and the door is open. "Come in, come in, holy pilgrims. This humble home is yours." And now, Mary and Joseph have found shelter at last. Then the rejoicing begins, the feasting, the celebrating, and finally, the biggest surprise of all, breaking the pinata.
