Remember Pedro? He's Disney's Little Airplane That Could.

We post this late on Friday in the hopes that you'll save it for Saturday morning cartoon time or, if you just can't wait...enjoy.

Below is a 1942 Disney cartoon featuring "Pedro," a baby airplane tasked with crossing the Andes from Santiago, Chile to Mendoza, Argentina for the purpose of retrieving the mail. It's a cartoon you may have seen before, but for ourselves, having just crossing the Andes and seen Aconcagua and these cities for the first time this year, it has more meaning than pure entertainment.

The credit for this awesome find goes to Jaunted reader @whitesky60, who also runs the @RosiesWWII twitter, which shares what would be the thoughts of Rosie the Riveter, if she were tweeting in the 1940s. Hard to believe this cartoon is from 1942!
