Some of Disney's animated features from the 1940s never made it to home video until the 1990s, or at least until 2000. In the case of Saludos Amigos, it only got a laserdisc release on October 28, 1994, before making its VHS debut on May 2, 2000. 57 years after the release.


Direct from the vault, Disney's sixth full-length animated film, "Saludos Amigos," is available for the first time ever! Loosely translating as "Greetings, Friends," it features the Academy Award®;-nominated song of the same title* and showcases the brilliance of Disney's legendary animators.

Saludos Amigos A whimsical blend of live-action and animation, "Saludos Amigos" is a colorful kaleidoscope of art, adventure, and music set to a toe-tapping samba beat. Your south-of-the-border traveling companions are none other than famous funny friends Donald Duck and Goofy. They keep things lively as Donald encounters a stubborn llama and "El Gaucho" Goofy tries on the cowboy way of life... South American style.

From high Andes peaks to Argentina's pampas to the sights and sounds of Rio de Janeiro, "Saludos Amigos" is a hilarious visual feast that will entertain and delight the whole family.
