South of the Border with Disney

South of the Border with Disney is a 1942 Disney short documentary film. It was shot in the same occasion Saludos Amigos was, when Walt Disney and a group of eighteen artists, musicians and writers went to South America looking for inspirations for a movie. While Saludos Amigos is the result of this voyage, alternating animated shorts to the sequences from the travel that inspired them, South of the Border with Disney is more of a behind-the-scenes documentary showing only the travel and the genesis of cartoons not only for Saludos Amigos and The Three Caballeros, but also some others used in later occasions. The most notable example is a female Armadillo used for a 1943 Pluto cartoon, Pluto and the Armadillo. Film also includes some pencil test animation.
