“Animators on assignment from Walt Disney tour South America (along with Donald Duck!) to soak up new cartoon ideas. This long-unseen Disney item is full of color and music, but is obviously a holding-pattern release for the company. I watched the film on video, coupled with the quite-entertaining additional 20-minute documentary which regales even more of the non-animated adventures. Never too popular with the kids, probably because a major cartoon segment involving Pedro the Airplane isnu0026#39;t very funny and lacks the local flavor. Otherwise, some visually dazzling bits but not as good as the similar u0026quot;The Three Caballerosu0026quot;, released in the US in 1945. **1/2 from ****”
