Goofs

In the final chase scene, Jasper and Horace's truck is coming down the hill and will cut in front of the van in a few seconds. However, the time taken with Cruella and Pongo (saving the puppy) is clearly longer. Also, when we see the truck a 2nd time, it is much closer to the van than in the following shot of the collision with Cruella. It would have hit the van or passed in front. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Pongo: My story begins in London, not so very long ago. And yet so much has happened since then, that it seems more like an eternity.

Alternate Versions

On the 1992 VHS release of the film, the 1990 Walt Disney Pictures logo takes the place of the Buena Vista title card, so, the Buena Vista title card is placed after the film's ending instead. The Buena Vista title card fades to these 2 bumpers, "Coming to Home Video" and "Coming on Videocassette this Summer" which these 2 bumpers have the text "Walt Disney" from the 1986 Walt Disney Home Video logo.
