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.
Three of them are cheerful, but their leader appears cynical.
They serve people at the Ink and Paint Club in this film. Eddie Valiant orders a scotch on the rocks from one and adds "I mean ice!". The penguin returns with his drink with a rock in it, upon which he replies "Toons."
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.
They serve as waiters for the House of Mouse.
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!
- Their theme is a kazoo played by Richard Sherman, one of the film's song writers.
- They resemble Chinstrap penguins.
