Clown of the Jungle is a Donald Duck cartoon released in 1947. It marks the first short film the Aracuan Bird (first seen in The Three Caballeros) appeared in. The cartoon was directed by Jack Hannah with music by Oliver Wallace.
Donald Duck is visiting the jungle to photograph its tropical birds, but things take a turn for the worse when Donald encounters the Aracuan Bird.

- The hammer sound from "Roustabouts", can be heard when Donald and the Aracuan are hammering a nail.
- On The Chronological Donald, Volume Three, the opening theme uses the cut-short 1947 Donald Duck theme instead of the first Mickey Mouse theme it originally used.
- The reason it uses the early '40s Mickey Mouse theme was because the 1947 Donald Duck theme was not finished yet. It would not be used until Donald's Dilemma.
- Television airings on the Disney Channel and Toon Disney removed all the scenes involving the Aracuan commiting suicide, and the scene near the end when Donald tries to shoot the bird with a machine gun.
- When Donald goes insane and starts acting like the Aracuan at the very end, he breaks the fourth wall by walking along the black iris and shrinking with it.
