Pongo and Perdita have a litter of 15 Dalmatian puppies. Cruella De Vil takes a fancy to the puppies and tries to buy them from their human owners, Roger and Anita. Cruella wants to get a hold of those puppies, as well as more puppies, to make herself a lovely dalmatian skin coat. She hires some thugs to kidnap the puppies and hold them at an abandoned mansion. Now Pongo and Perdita must use an animal communication system to help find all the puppies.

Three words. Puppy. Fur. Coat. A great movie but not a good image, although it's in keeping with Cruella's demonic demeanor.

101 Dalmatians is an entertaining, unique, and creative film! I love the story line, and all of the sweet characters. Disney did a great job developing the story, and really makes you dislike Cruella DeVille, the villain in this movie. You connect easily with the dogs and their owners, and watch in suspense as they fight to escape Cruella. It is different from any other Disney film I have seen, and I enjoyed it very much! I think that it would be great for people of all ages, and is a film that the whole family can enjoy. This movie is clever, adventurous, funny, and very engaging, which is why I would definitely recommend this movie to other viewers! @PenelopeScriptor of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

I thought when I requested and borrowed this 2020 JUVENILE DVD ANIMATED version of "DISNEY: 101 DALMATIANS" from Public Library, it would be in widescreen format, full-screen viewing on my computer screen.
But in reality, IT IS NOT !!!!!!!!. copyrighted by Walt Disney Pictures MCMLX (1960). It is still in the 1960 version (( STANDARD FORMAT, GRAPHICS/PICTURE outdated, STORYTELLING/SONGS from 1960, NO BONUS FEATURES/SCENES )), but it did bring back "Old Memories" - seeing 1960's black & white Television Shows, as I remembered.
Since the original Actors/Actresses (SHOWN ON BEGINNING OF DVD) from original BLACK & WHITE MOVIE died along time ago, and was replaced with newer VOICE ACTORS/VOICE ACTRESSES, it still the same movie.
It was COOL this is a SHORTEN Movie Time: 1hr 19min, as compared to modern DVD Movies (lasting 1hr 45min up to 2 hrs LONG)
I appreciated that this old Disney Movie (Original Release Date: ‎January 25, 1961); was reproduced by WALT DISNEY, in association with BUENA VISTA HOME ENTERTAINMENT, and re-released in COLOR VERSION.
I understand that ALL WALT DISNEY MOVIES are ENTERTAINING AND LOVABLE, but this 2020 Color Version: ""TRULY LACKS CLARITY"" (it is less than desirable quality).
Therefore, I gave this 2020 Color Version of same MOVIE (AVERAGE 3-STARS RATING).
Only good thing on this DVD that happened: It showed brief preview of FROZEN 2, which I have not seen yet.

1960 A CLASSIC Disney animation to remember as kids growing up in the 1960's. Toe tapping soundtrack.

This is such an amazing classic movie. I loved watching it as a child but now I love it even more. The movie was such an overall fantastic movie. I especially loved the small humorous parts in the movie. As a child I remember laughing at Cruella because of the way they dressed her. But now I see that the way she was dressed was so fitted as her as a character because it showed a dark human side of her being. If you are a dog-lover or just a sucker for animated classics like me, then this is a definite movie to watch on a road trip or just with the family. One thing I didn’t love about the movie was the final plans cruella had for the puppies, it was just down right disturbing and wrong. But overall it was a good movie because the puppies were all safe in the end. 4.5/5 stars

This is an amazing classic movie! It is based around Dalmatian Pongo is tired of his bachelor-dog life. He spies lovely Perdita and maneuvers his master, Roger, into meeting Perdita's owner, Anita. The owners fall in love and marry, keeping Pongo and Perdita together too. After Perdita gives birth to a litter of 15 puppies, Anita's old school friend Cruella De Vil wants to buy them all. Roger declines her offer, so Cruella hires the criminal Badun brothers to steal them -- so she can have a fur coat. My favourite part of the movie would have to be the ending because Cruella got served justice. I loved the whole plot, the theme and the storyline of this movie. I would recommend this movie to people of all ages because it is a family friendly movie and some people will love this movie. I loved how well they brought the movie to life and I like how each character had its own personality and they didn’t have personality twins. Overall, this is a fantastic movie and a great classic to watch in your free time! 5/5

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.

Every kid has seen this movie, but this is the second greatest film ever made (after LADY AND THE TRAMP). 101D doesn't have any of any of Disney's signature racist animals, so it gets an extra star.
Also, remember Peg + the other animals on death row that sing to Lady in LATT? They have a cameo in a pet store background, so that's a happy added bonus <3
