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?

Pedro aka How To Be A Poor Airplane Parent.
25 September 2003 | by (Northbrook, IL, USA) – See all my reviews

In the magical realm of Disney cartoons, people don't fly airplanes...they fly themselves! "Pedro" features a daddy airplane, a mommy airplane and a little boy airplane. The daddy is a Chilean mail plane but he's got a cold. That poses a problem.

Some mail has to be picked up in another city so the parents send off their little boy all alone on the dangerous trek. He makes it safely across the Andes Mountains and picks up a mail pouch. On the return trip, though, Pedro runs into some trouble. He encounters a terrible storm and uses up all of his fuel. The little airplane is shown plummeting to a certain death...or is he?

Why did the Disney animators go through the trouble of visiting Chile if this is all they were going to come up with? This slight story could've taken place in virtually any country. 1/10
