This Disney animated classic is based on the children's story by Dodie Smith. The story involves the canine pets of a struggling composer and his wife: Dalmatians Pongo (male) and Perdita (female). Perdita gives birth to fifteen spotted pups, cuing the entrance of the scheming Cruella De Vil. She demands that the dogs' owners sell her the pups, but she is shown the door instead. Under cover of night, Cruella arranges for the pups to be stolen. The human police are baffled, but the "dog network" is alerted by Pongo and sent to rescue the pups. It is discovered that Cruella has been rounding up every Dalmatian she can get her hands on, hoping to use their pelts to make one spectacular fur coat. The dogs rescue the 15 pups, plus 86 others stolen by Ms. DeVil. After an eventful escape, the 101 Dalmatians make their way home--whereupon the composer pens a hit tune, "Dalmatian Plantation". 101 Dalmatians represents the Disney animation staff at its very best, and as a bonus introduces the world to Cruella De Vil, one of the greatest movie villains--cartoon or "real"--of all time. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
This is a great family movie. And most definitely a classic. If you're looking for a good movie for your kids this would be one of them.
I'd like to note that this is a classic kids movie. It's not going to necessarily have the same appeal to children as say.... Shrek would.
As with all Walt Disney animated movies.this was,(and still is) one of the best that Walt Disney had created during his time with us.
The story ends with the two dogs having their pups,Plus 99 puppies that have been saved.Thus,the name 101 Dalmatians is born.
I enjoy watching movies twice.I will first watch it normally,and the next day play it again with the directors coments in the background. This makes most two movies in one.The first is the movie,And the secound is the making.If you have not played it before,I suggest you try.YOu will learn a lot of things about a movie.
