The Penguin waiters are characters from Disney's 1964 musical extravaganza Mary Poppins. They sing Jolly Holiday in the animated sequence of the movie and dance with Bert in one of the most spectacular musical moments of all time.


The three of them are cheerful, but their leader appears cynical.


Mary Poppins

The penguins are seen in the animated sequence of the film when Mary Poppins, and Bert are dining. The penguins waiter them and enjoy a dance with Bert.

Who Framed Roger Rabbit

The Penguins serve people at the Ink and Paint Club in this film. Eddie Valiant orders from a penguin a scotch on the rocks and adds, "And I mean ice!" The penguin returns with his drink with a rock in it, upon Valiant replies, "Toons."

House of Mouse

The Penguins serve as waiters for the House of Mouse.

Disney Parks

The penguins are semi-rare characters. They only make occasional meet and greet appearances and are often seen with Mary Poppins. They are also seen in Fantasmic! on certain nights. The penguins are also featured in One Man's Dream II: The Magic Lives On!


  • The penguins' theme is a kazoo played by Richard Sherman, one of the film's song writers.
  • The penguins resemble Chinstrap penguins.
