101 Dalmatians / DVD
As a kid, I could not wait for The Wonderful World of Disney to come on every Sunday evening. Better yet was when my parents would take us to see a Disney movie when it came to the theater. 101 Dalmatians has always been one of my favorites and now I get to share it with my grandchildren. To me, there is no better way to spend an evening than to watch my grandchildren as they get lost in the movie and the action. One look at their faces and I know that they are hooked on Disney just like I was as a child and still am. 101 Dalmatians and all of the Disney classics will be around for generations to come.
Back in 1961, Walt Disney got a little hip with 101 Dalmatians, making use of that flat Saturday morning cartoon style that had become so popular. The result is a kitschy change in animation and story. Pongo and Perdita are two lonely dalmatians who meet cute in a London park and arrange for their pet humans to marry so they can live together and raise a family. They become proud parents of 15 pups, who are stolen by the dastardly Cruella De Vil, who wants to make a fur coat out of them. Cruella has become the most popular villain in all of Disney; she's flamboyantly nasty and lots of fun. But it's the dalmatians who shine in this endearing classic, particularly those precocious pups. Telling the story from the dogs' point of view is a clever conceit, a fundamental flaw of the live-action remake.
