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.


Three of them are cheerful, but their leader appears cynical.


Mary Poppins

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

Who Framed Roger Rabbit

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

The Little Mermaid (TV series)

They appear in the Season 2 episode "Save the Whale" as Pettigrew's penguins in his sea circus. But despite they wear for example exactly the same bowties, they do not have the same voices and personalitie. They may be other penguins, just doubles of the Penguins from the 1964 film.

House of Mouse

They serve as waiters for the House of Mouse.

Disney Parks

They 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!

Disney Games

The Penguins make a possible role in; "102 Dalmatians; Puppies To The Rescue", as one of the toys that Cruella's Factory makes. They try to attck either Domino or Oddball, by sliding towrds them.


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