If you are a dog lover, then, you are sure to enjoy watching Disney's "101 Dalmatians" from 1961.

Featuring a nice mix of adventure, comedy, and drama - "101 Dalmatians" introduces (as a character) one of the most nasty and ruthless female villains ever imagined.

Going by the name of Cruella De Vil, this total monster even puts the likes of the villainous Captain Hook (from "Peter Pan") to shame.

And, speaking further about Cruella - Why anyone (in their right mind) would ever want a full-length coat fashioned out of dalmatian puppy pelts is beyond me - But, Hey! - We're not talking about just anyone here - Are we?

Anyway - All-in-all - I'd say that "101 Dalmatians" was (for the most part) enjoyable animated entertainment.

(*Familiar dalmatian quote*) - "Arf! Arf! Arf!"

IMO - Without the nasty, scenery-chewing villainess, Cruella De Vil making several stormy appearances throughout "101 Dalmatians'" story - This animated "Disney" production (from 1961) wouldn't have been half as entertaining as it inevitably was.

Yes. Over and over again - It was Cruella who stole the show in this story (with the cuteness of the dalmatian puppies consistently coming in at second place).

For the most part - This 80-minute dog tale of comedy, adventure, and drama was the kind of entertainment whose appeal can certainly be appreciated by viewers of all ages.

A playful, if ultimately silly children's entertainment; it started well, developed decently, but the mad evil of DeVille and her two henchmen, and the unexplained other 84 puppies made the movie just too much... it was over the top: it lost its mythic and moral touchstones.

A really great movie, with one of the best villain songs not sung by a villain. Sorry Cruella.

Dalmatian Plantation is forgettable though.

The highest grossing animated feature up until that time, this charming bit of pre-CGI Disney used a xerox photocopying process to produce a look both crisp and visually complex. The result is a storybook London filled with jazzy spires and blinking neon surrounded by a countryside of watercolour snowdrifts and star-speckled skies. The characters themselves, both two-legged and four, are portrayed with a depth and personality not often seen in cartoon features whether it be a romantic kiss between humans, a horde of fascinated puppies jostling in front of a TV set, or Cruella De Vil’s maniacal psychosis as she storms from one disaster to another. And then there’s all those surprise canine cameos from 1955’s "Lady and the Tramp"! A big warm fuzzy whose heart tuggers and slapstick action have managed to entertain two generations and counting.
