SALUDOS AMIGOS (Theatrical Release USA 1943)

 Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì 

Saludos Amigos—great family show—shows a sweet side to the Disney animation team’s wartime tour of South America. It’s a nice reminder of the softer animation techniques used with traditional characters of Donald Duck and Goofy and introduces the various countries with an appreciation of their cultural backgrounds. It’s great to see the introduction of a new Disney character, Jose ‘Joe’ Carioca, who was later used in The Three Caballeros movie. Clean, sweet comedy with no unwanted surprises.
