That's what Saludos Amigos means in English. That's not just my start.
I have a friend who rented this from our town's library and brought to my house when he spent the night.
I had heard about this movie looking up the list of Disney movies that were made and saw that this came out after Snow White, Pinocchio, Fantasia, Dumbo, and Bambi (There is also the over-looked Reluctant Dragon.)
This movie would be FOLLOWED by Cinderella, Peter Pan, Lady and the Tramp, Sleeping Beauty, 101 Dalmatians, etc.-and also live action works like Old Yeller and Mary Poppins, among many others.
I list all of those movies because these ALL rank superior to this movie. Most of the movie is really boring, and my friend and me just talked through most of it.
There is one main decent short with an airplane(with a cute shot of it's "anatomy" ) but there was very few things that are actually worth seeing.
The case also said that the movie is about 70 minutes long. This film actually is only 45ish minutes long! The rest is the MAKING of the movie. My friend and me couldn't believe it and I took it out of the VCR. (Yeah, old school-baby!)
This movie is a real bummer. Walt Disney made some masterpieces of animation, and movies in general. This is far from being one of them. If you love Disney movies, then you should skip Saludos Amigos.

iHola! Que tal? (sorry, I can't do an upside-down "?" on my keyboard) iMuy bien, gracias!
Yeah, I'm doing very well, indeed!
Why the Spanish? Because today, we are looking at the other 1942 Disney animated movie, "Saludos Amigos!" This is one of many 1940s Disney short cartoon compilations released into theaters. So, we see a few short cartoons that take us south of the border and in between these shorts, we see a travel agent telling us about the many places of Latin America and such.
Come to think of it, I actually remember seeing the last part of this on the Disney Channel back nine years ago from this month of writing this (yes, you DCOM fans, we forefathers had old stuff on this network back in the days of yore), and though I didn't get to see this movie in whole, I still thought that this was good, among many other Mickey and Friends movies.
"Saludos Amigos" - iSi! Diez estrellas (10 stars).
When I first heard that Disney was going to release a number of films from the early years which had been "almost forgotten," I was very intrigued. Would there be another Sleeping Beauty or Fantasia hiding out there?
Sadly, Saludos Amigos falls very short of "Disney classic" status. It is basically forgettable.
There are a few smile-inducing moments, but overall the piece really does feel like a "keep the Sudamericanos on our side against the Nazis" period piece from the WW2 era. It's strange to watch a movie made in 1943 with live action sequences of South America looking so peaceful and unaffected by the world's events. Sure, the region was less involved in WW2 than many other regions... but, it is still strange to watch.
Anyway, I'd sum it up thusly: 1. Worth buying if you are a Disney collector and 2. Worthy of note simply to see live shots of Buenos Aires, Lago Titicaca, and Rio de Janeiro, filmed almost 60 years ago.
Other than that, you can skip this one.
