Storyline

Live-action segments show members of the Disney staff touring South America and recording their impressions in sketches. These segue into four animated sections: "Lake Titicaca" depicts tourist Donald Duck's troubles with a stubborn llama; "Pedro" tells of a little mail plane's adventures flying over the treacherous Andes; "El Gaucho Goofy" transplants an American cowboy into the Argentine pampas; and in "Aquarela do Brasil," Jose Carioca shows Donald the sights and sounds of Rio de Janiero.

Trivia

Chilean cartoonist René Ríos Boettiger a.k.a. "Pepo" was dissatisfied with Pedro the Airplane. He wanted a character that could be seen in the same league as Donald Duck and José Carioca. As a "response" to the film, in 1949 he created his most famous character: "Condorito", an anthropomorphic condor (this type of bird can actually be seen in the film's segment). He became one of the most popular comic strip characters around the world. See more »

Cool flick!
19 June 2002 | by (So*Cal) – See all my reviews

Like it's sequel, "Three Caballeros," "Saludos Amigos" was made to improve the relations between North and South America and to expose Northerners to Latin American culture. Great music and great fun, though the Latin American culture is a bit sugar-coated. A great family film though the concepts of inter-continental neighborship will go right over the kid's heads.
