| Not nearly up to the usual Disney standards.
During WWII, Walt Disney was persuaded by the US government to take a good will tour of South America as well as do some cartoons featuring characters from this continent. Why? Well, it was in hopes of firming up relations with them...and hopefully either keeping these countries out of the war or on the side of the US. The cartoons that resulted generally were sub-par (a nice way of saying they sucked) and features like "Saludos Amigos" and "The Three Caballeros" were the result. There also were some short--like "The Flying Gauchito". And, while the cartoon is not horrible, it is clearly well below the usual standard of excellence established by Disney. As for this story, the plot was very contrived--with a story that s seems to show that Walt had a hard time coming up with something! After all, the plot involves a South American boy and his flying donkey! So in addition to a very weak story, you also had slightly poorer than average animation, weak characters and, oddly, on the DVD the picture kept bouncing about--and might just cause motion sickness in viewers. Overall, quite easy to skip.
