It wasn't as fun or as entertaining as it should have been. "Saludos Amigos" feels like a postcard sent from South America but it lacks the charm of a good Disney movie.

Its sort of a early documentary / featurette with a bit of culture and some decent Disney animated shorts.

Short and sweet, this often forgotten Disney animation isn't without its charm as it sweeps across South America with a fantastical flourish.

Tra i classici d'animazione meno conosciuti, Saludos Amigos riesce ancora ad emozionarci, tutto in meno di un ora ed in tema sudamericano.

The first of a few package films to come from wartime Disney, it's kind of forgettable overall, but does offer some slight amusement.

Produced during Disney's fallow WWII period, SALUDOS AMIGOS is kind of slight but still occasionally charming.

: Not much was expected from a Disney package film created as propaganda during World War II but there were surprisingly a couple of redeeming qualities. This was the first of many of the package or segmented films that Disney made in the 40's and consisted of 4 mini-movies set throughout South America. While it was a very insightful look into Latin American culture it was also a pretty flat out bore. It read almost like a documentary and didn't offer much in the way of originality but it was great seeing Donald and Goofy in their first full length film.

Saluds Amigos was not that great a film. It is pretty much a documentary on Disney animator going to South America and learning about their culture in order to make The Three Caballeros. Kind of boring

Saludos Amigos is quite enjoyable.

Saludos Amigos was new terrain for Disney when it came out as it was the first of the compilation package films made in the 1940's. I like it! It has more of an educational nature, but at only 40 minutes long it doesn't wear on you. El Gaucho Goofy is probably my favorite clip in the film. (First and only full viewing - Summer 2009)

Historical significance aside, this travelogue amounts to one of the least interesting Disney efforts. It's slow and does little to inject life into its almost strictly informational approach. Still, it's fun to see our favorite animated characters getting all multicultural from time to time.

Quite an enjoyable short film about Brazil. Love the colors~

It was a really interesting, really cute and funny Disney animated anthology movie. It had really great animation, really great cinematography, really great characters, really great music, plenty of laughs, really great adventure and really good stories. This is just as good as "The Three Cabelleros." I really recommend this movie to Donald Duck fans of all ages.

This documentary film makes you travel around South America and learn a lot about other cultures and their way of life while having so much fun. Charming :)

An entertaining animated travelogue with four short stories: the first one quite funny and amusing, the following two not so interesting and actually a bit dull, but finally the last one being the most gorgeous to look at, introducing the charming character of Josť Carioca.

Very good and very funny!

One has to keep in mind that this film was made during the second world war. It is therefore, not the same quality, in terms of animation as its predecessors. Yet watching this classic is far from a waste of time. It is a thoroughly enjoyable collection of cartoons which are entertaining for the whole family.

Nothing that hasn't been done better in Disney's following years

(1942) Saludos Amigos/ Hello, Friends in English

Consist of some interesting cartoon skits(4 exact) with documentary clips between each one of the actual Walt Disney and company's trip through Latin America, including Brazil(Brasil), Uruguay, Argentina, Chile, Bolivia and Mexico. A great percentage of it deals with some of the influences and behind-the-scenes the artists had experienced upon coming up with their characters, including Josť Carioca the parrot, Pedro the small airplane, intermingling with Donald Duck and Goofy. The final segment is a 20 minute documentary showcasing Walt and comp.

3 out of 4 stars
