(*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.
