From Amazon.co.uk

One of Disney's best-ever animated features, 101 Dalmatians arrived at a time when the studio's output was getting a second wind. Made just after Lady And The Tramp and Sleeping Beauty, and with The Jungle Book not far away, it was a rich time for Disney, and fans of animated movies.

101 Dalmatians is simply wonderful in its own right, though. In Cruella De Vil, Disney put on screen one of its finest ever villains, and its charming collection of characters are a joy to spend time with.

There's lot to enjoy on the disc, and as always, Disney has provided something for all ages of viewers. The making-of piece in particular is of interest, given that it brings modern-day Disney talent together to look back at what makes the film so special. Unsurprisingly, Cruella gets a special feature all of her own, too. But if you're looking for an archive treat, the correspondence between Walt Disney and the book's author, Dodie Smith is just lovely.

Finally, there's the film itself, cleaned up and looking utterly pristine in 1080p, with a sparkling audio mix accompanying it. It's incredible that a film made so many decades ago maintains such a spring in its step, and it's with good reason that 101 Dalmatians remains one of the most popular, and best, movies that Walt Disney Studios has every produced. --Jon Foster

Product Description

101 Dalmatians has charmed audiences for generations with its irresistible tailwagging stars, memorable story and wonderful blend of humour and adventure. Cruella De Vil, Disney’s most outrageous villain, sets the fur-raising adventure in motion when she dognaps all of the Dalmatian puppies in London — including 15 from Pongo and Perdita’s family. Through the power of the “Twilight Bark,” Pongo leads a heroic cast of animal characters on a dramatic quest to rescue them all in a story the whole family will enjoy again and again.

By Robert Morris TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Note: This review is of the most recently issued (2008) version.

I find it difficult to believe that it has been 47 years since this film first appeared. (I also find it difficult to believe that I now have ten grandchildren with whom to watch it.) Credit the Disney organization with providing with this latest restored version a generous selection of bonus features that substantially increase the pleasure of seeing this classic film once again. They include a DVD-ROM of a "Virtual Dalmatians Game," "Op-Up Trivia Facts," and "The Making of One Hundred and One Dalmations," and correspondence between "Sincerely yours, Walt Disney" and Dodie Smith, author of the novel on which the film is based.

The basic plot involves two lonely dalmatians (Pongo and Perdita) who meet in a London park and whose owners then meet and marry. Over time, the dalmatians become parents of 15 puppies who are stolen by Cruella De Vil who is determined to make a fur coat out of their skins. That doesn't happen, of course, but younger children get all caught up in efforts to rescue the puppies (at least when viewing the film for the first time) just as they do when hoping that Pinocchio will be reunited with Gepetto, that Snow White will awaken from her deep sleep, and that Belle and the Beast will live happily ever after. In the best of Disney's animated features, there always seems to be a subtext of menace and this film is no exception. When observing Cruella De Vil's behavior, many of those in my generation will be reminded of Gloria Swanson's portrayal of Norma Desmond in Sunset Boulevard. In terms of quality of its story, art, and music, 101 Dalmatians deserves to be ranked among Disney's finest animated films. The special features offer an exceptional "bonus.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magical film finally arrives on Blu Ray 4 Sep 2012
By Neil B
Format:Blu-ray
This has to be one of my all time favourite Disney films (along with ROBIN HOOD & THE RESCUERS). The blu ray transfer is exceptional for such an old film, and it is obvious much work has gone into the restoration. The picture & sound quality are both excellent, and the disc comes with an interesting selection of additional extras, including a fascinating "making of" documentery. Worth every penny!

5.0 out of 5 stars an animal lover's film 12 Oct 2003
Format:VHS Tape
101 Dalmations is based on the book brought out some time ago about an evil villain stealing away innocent dalmation puppies to try and create the ultimate pet outfit made of fur.
This film is another brilliant Walt Disney classic full of imagination and adventure. With a brilliant cast of Cruella De Vil, the puppies, the owners and the parents of the puppies, it gives children of all ages through enjoyment.
It is truly fantastic with riveting animation and fabulous songs, brought to you by Walt Disney.
Children who love animals will adore this film about fighting for the puppies and fighting against the evil Cruella De Vil.
My children thought it was fantastic and willingly watch it even now, when they are teenagers.
I'm sure your children will love it too!
I hope this review was of use to you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dotty for 101 Dalmatians 12 Sep 2012
By Quinn
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
It is hard to believe that 101 Dalmatians was originally released in 1961 and it has finally been transferred onto Blu-ray with all the care and clarity it deserves; the colours are crisp and the animation is simply stunning. This is the heroic tale of Pongo and Perdita on the trail of their missing offspring after they are snatched by a creepy and cruel Disney villain: "Cruella De Vil, Cruella De Vil, if she doesn't scare you, no evil thing will". This is a story loved by children and adults alike and a definite family favourite to have in your collection. There's also an abundance of special features including The Making of 101 Dalmatians, Cruella De Vil: Drawn To Be Bad, Sincerely Yours Walt Disney, Trailers and a Cruella De Vil Music Video by Selena Gomez which will keep any Disney fan happy. Highly recommended.

A pleasant animated film to watch! I hadn't seen it in about 18 years before buying it on Blu-Ray, so I decided to buy it again, as I am also trying to build up a Disney collection. If you're revisiting this film, you'll be pleased with the clear quality of the Blu-Ray. If you have an interest in Disney, I would recommend buying this classic.
