Trivia

One of the lines in the Cruella de Vil song -- which is cut from the actual movie, but does appear in music video versions of the song -- is "all innocent children had better beware". Roger had no idea how accurate that statement later turned out to be (well, if you're a dalmatian child, anyhow). See more »

Goofs

(at around 49 mins) When Cruella takes the bottle of alcohol away from Jasper's mouth to throw it in the fire, she grabs it upside down, but when she's about to throw it, she is holding it right-side up. 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.

One of my favorites
28 March 2004 | by Smells_Like_CheeseSee all my reviews

Lion King has always been my favorite Disney movie. But One Hundred and One Dalmations is on my top 5. The movie is filled with so many laughs, you have to love it.

Pongo is a lonely pup with his lonely musical master, Roger. When he spots two lovely women(one being a dog of course), he sets Roger up to meet the woman. They hit it off immediatly as well does Pongo with his new mate, Perdita. When Perdita has puppies, Perdita's(her master) old friend, Cruella DeVille wants to buy them from her. But only to make the puppies into a new fur coat. When Roger refuses, Cruella kidnaps the puppies. Pongo and Perdita go out to save the puppies. And the rest is left for you to see for yourself.

8/10
