Pongo, Perdita, and their super-adorable puppies are in for thrills, hilarious spills, and an epic adventure when they face off against Cruella De Vil. When Cruella dognaps all of the Dalmatian puppies in London, the brave animal heroes launch a daring plan to save the pups from Cruella’s clutches.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
101 Dalmatians is actually a much cooler movie than I remember as a kid. Cool music and animals whose names begin with military ranks? How can you go wrong? The animation seemed a little too bleak and stylized for a Disney production but that's most of its charm for me.
I adore the first 20 minutes. As for the rest, I prefer my Disney less action-ish, and the henchmen (as well as the other dogs) weren't that good. Still cool tho. The song! And Pongo's monologue at the start <3
the fluidity of the animation was astonishing, even for present standard. The background sketches were amazing, and I really love how they played the color palettes for different acts, added with the great sound scores for the tones of the story.
