South of the Border with Disney is a 1942 Disney short documentary. 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.
In 2000, South of the Border with Disney was released on the Gold Classic Collection DVD of Saludos Amigos as an extra, and it was released again as a bonus feature on the 2008 Saludos Amigos/The Three Caballeros "Classic Caballero Collection".
