Storyline

In a little airport near Santiago, Chile, live three airplanes, a papa plane, which carries mail over the Andes between Chile and Argentina, a mama plane, and a baby plane, Pedro. Pedro spends his days at flight school, hoping to grow up to be like his father. One day, his father has a cold in his cylinder head, so Pedro gets the call to cross the Andes, past the forbidding peak of Aconcagua, to pick up and bring back the mail from Mendoza. Pedro takes off, and the trip to Argentina goes well. Then, Pedro gets cocky, and the return trip goes badly. Will Aconcagua claim another victim? And what of the mail, does it get through?

In Defense of Pedro as South American Travelogue
20 July 2007 | by See all my reviews

The criticism that Pedro is not Chilean enough to justify the Disney artists' trip to Chile misses the point. As a viewer, I find Pedro to be a welcome departure from the depictions of regional dance and music that comprises much of Saludos Amigos. Also, the forbidding majesty of the Andes is very much at the heart of Pedro, which was inspired by the artists' own flight over the Andes during their trip. Indeed, Saludos Amigos (and later The Three Caballeros) did not exactly probe the depths of South American culture--for that, we had Orson Welles' It's All True. Besides, what would you rather have preserved for posterity, the Pedro cartoon or yet another sequence showing yet another regional dance?
