|In early 1941, before U.S. entry into World War II, the US Department of State
commissioned a Disney goodwill tour of South America. The trip took Disney
and a group of composers and artists from his studio to South America-- to
Brazil, Argentina, Chile and Peru. Saludos Amigos is a feature film made up of
four different segments: "Lake Titicaca" depicts tourist Donald Duck's troubles
with a stubborn llama. "Pedro" tells of a little mail plane's adventures flying
over the treacherous Andes. "El Gaucho Goofy" transplants an American
cowboy into the Argentine pampas. "Aquarela do Brasil" Jose Carioca shows
Donald Duck the beauty of Brazil!
Disney was chosen for this because several Latin American governments had
close ties with Nazi Germany, and the US government wanted to counteract those
ties. Mickey Mouse and other Disney characters were popular in Latin America
and Walt Disney acted as ambassador.
Saludos Amigos was popular so Walt Disney decided to make another film
about Latin America "The Three Caballeros" to be produced two years later.
A small number of cels were released thru the Courvoisier Gallery Art Program.
