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.

Disney may throw around the word 'classic' with a little too much abandon when it comes to some of its animated releases, but its take on 101 Dalmatians is very much the real deal. With lively songs, a terrifically-realised story and one of its very best villains, it remains a towering achievement, over four decades since it first appeared.
The story of 101 Dalmatians starts with the two heroes of the tale, Pongo and Perdita. But when their litter of dalamatian puppies is dognapped by the evil Cruella De Vils cronies, the pair must spring into action to save their offspring before Cruella gets herself the new coat that she desires.
But while Pongo and Perdita may be the pair you end up rooting for, the undoubted star of 101 Dalmatians is Cruella De Vil. A wonderfully twisted, genuinely nasty villainess, shes an astounding creation and adds a real menace to the film. That said, its not a downbeat or scary tale: toe-tapping musical numbers, plenty of imagination and a good few chuckles make up the rest of the ingredients, and rarely have they all come together quite so well as they do here.
Retold by Disney in live action form in 1996, its nonetheless its animated take on 101 Dalmatians that remains the definitive filmed version. And now packed into a special collectors DVD set, theres never been a better reason to treat your family to a copy. Unmissable, and a reminder of why Disneys reputation in this field is quite so towering. --Simon Brew --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.See all Product Description

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.
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.Read more ›
101 Dalmations arrived on blu-ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 1.33:1 encode. The transfer is simply pristine with bold solid colours. Blacks are inky. Image is sharp and clean. A little too much grain was scrubbed (but don’t worry, not as bad as the Sword in The Stone). The original aspect ratio was 1.75:1, which I would have preferred. I wonder why it was changed to 1.33:1 in the blu-ray release? At any rate, this “Diamond” Edition on blu-ray is much more superior than the previous “Platinum” Edition DVD. Confused? (4.5/5)
101 Dalmations came with DTS-HD 7.1 Master Audio. It is perhaps an overkill. The front speakers are doing all the work, while the lateral and rear speakers provide some ambiance. The soundtrack is clean and louder than the previous Dolby Digital DVD counterpart. Dialogue is clear. A very pleasant soundtrack. (4/5)
Following the flop of Sleeping Beauty in 1959, there were talks of closing down the animation studios. 101 Dalmations was responsible to save the studio, and marked the turning point for Disney. Not only was the animation style and process much different from what came previously, but the film itself is a step in a different direction too. This is the first time a film has taken place in the modern setting. Cruella was one of the nastiest villains. 79 minutes just whisked by so quickly. (5/5)
1 Someone counted all black spots in the movie, frame-by-frame, and reached the total of 6,469,952. This breaks down to 72 spots on Pongo, 68 on Perdita and 32 on each pup.
2 Out of the 15 puppies Perdita gives birth to, only 6 are named (Lucky, Rolly, Patch, Penny, Pepper, and Freckles.)
3 Cruella's car is based on a Rolls-Royce Phantom.Read more ›
