* This is by far the shortest Disney Animated Feature, being less than 45 minutes long (keep in mind a film has to be over 40 minutes to count as a feature film). [[WhatCouldHaveBeen It should have been a bit longer, though]]--a live-action segment about a Brazilian zoo, followed by the cartoon ''Pluto and the Armadillo'' (which was not finished in time for the theatrical release, and eventually released separately a few years later), were planned for inclusion but ultimately cut; they would have made the film one hour long.
* TheDanza: José's voice actor is named José do Patrocinio Oliveira.
* DubNameChange: In Brazil, José is known as Zé Carioca, with "Zé" being a diminuitve form of José. In the Dutch and other European adaptations, he is known as Joe Carioca.
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: For decades, this movie seemed hard to find, especially compared to ''The Three Caballeros''. While ''Caballeros'' made was eventually released on VHS, ''Saludos Amigos'' remained legally unavailable until 1995. Since then, it didn't receive a wider release it was released on VHS and DVD in 2000, albeit censored. An uncensored version had to wait 10 ''more'' years to be released, appearing as a bonus feature for the documentary ''Walt & El Grupo''.
