Saludos Amigos

Saludos Amigos is made up of four animated sequences which are all tied together by live-action footage of Walt Disney and his artists on their trip to Latin America.

The segments are "Lake Titicaca," chronicling Donald's exploration of the Andes; "Pedro," the story of a baby airplane who replaces his father in the job of getting the mail through; "Aquarela do Brasil," with art showing the various landscapes of Brazil and José Carioca, the parrot, teaching Donald to dance the samba; and "El Gaucho Goofy," in which American cowboy Goofy becomes a gaucho on the Argentine pampas, learning the habits through off-stage narration.

42 minutes long.

Release Date
