Miguelito Maracas is an anthropomorphic kikirigui[1].

Description

Small-but-scrappy Miguelito is a Cuban friend of Donald Duck, José Carioca, and Panchito Pistoles. He owns a tobacco plantation, and first met his three friends there, when they visited Cuba in 1946. He showed the three the sights of Cuba, and they made him an honorary Caballero.

Behind the scenes

Miguelito Maracas was intended to appear in Cuban Carnival, a third South American goodwill film featuring the Three Caballeros, following Saludos Amigos and The Three Caballeros. The film was eventually scrapped, and with it, Miguelito; however, concept art of the character has been discovered, and he made a cameo appearance in the comic story De mysterieuze El Masco in 2018.
