A fun Disney way to explore the south of America
4 May 2007 | by (West Hove, England) – See all my reviews

This film was made in 1943, so back then Walt Disney had a lot of his staff sent to the U.S army to serve in World War 2 and a great deal of money was spend on the war effort. So technically, he couldn't make such high graphical films like Snow White and Dumbo but he could be able to make just as good film that his other efforts were remembered to have. Here, Donald Duck meets Jose Carioca, one of the best Disney characters from the 1940's who shows him about life in South America. As they go though, they notice a great, big beautiful world around them. The idea of this was originally to have a "Good Neighbour Policy" with Mexico and other South American countries so that they didn't join Nazi German powers during the war but this worked off a treat! This Disney movie is great I would strongly recommend it's 1945 equivalent "The Three Caballeros" as things are only going to get better!
