* This is by far the shortest Disney Animated Feature, being less than 45 minutes long. [[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 Oliveira.
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: For decades, this movie seemed hard to find, especially compared to ''The Three Caballeros''. While ''Caballeros'' made its VHS debut in 1982, as one of the first package films Creator/WaltDisneyHomeVideo put out, ''Saludos Amigos'' remained legally unavailable until 1995, when it and ''Caballeros'' joined WaltDisneyHomeVideo/DisneysExclusiveArchiveCollection [=LaserDisc=] line. Since then, it didn't receive a wider release until the censored 2000 WaltDisneyHomeVideo/WaltDisneyGoldClassicCollection DVD and VHS, and the uncensored version had to wait 10 ''more'' years for its DVD debut - finally appearing as a bonus feature for the documentary ''Walt & El Grupo''.
