**** It is.
---> '''Roger''': ''(hearing Cruella's car pull up)'' Oh, must be Cruella, your dearly devoted old schoolmate.

** Roger's work is writing songs. He probably sold a few and made modest sums, keeping him afloat when it was just him and Pongo. Money would have become tight, however, with the addition of Anita and Perdita, as well as the fifteen puppies and any children Roger and Anita ended up having. Fortunately for them, "Cruella de Ville" became a big hit that made them a fortune. As for Cruella, part of her ranting about the Radcliffes not being well off was likely because she was offering them a lot of money for the puppies and they were turning her down.

** Having just learned about defamation lawsuits, a few important things are whether the song Roger composed was malicious and, most importantly, the truthfulness of it. And it's up to the plaintiff to prove that not only was she falsely and maliciously misrepresented by the song, but also what her damages are as a result of it. (At least in America.)

!!Live-action movie and sequel
* If Chloe doesn't believe in second chances, why is she working as a probation officer? And if she refused to believe that Cruella had changed, why does she instantly believe Kevin is guilty?
** For the first point, perhaps she had become a probation officer with the belief in second chances? And then years of having to deal with rotten clients made her cynical and believe that it's impossible for criminals to reform. As for believing Kevin is guilty, the situation looked very much like he had taken her out to dinner in order to secure an alibi for himself. She was probably very offended and hurt that she had possibly been duped and lied to.
* So, Chloe is aware of Cruella before taking her probation case and that her dog Dipstick was one of the 101 from the first movie - why was she given the case?
** I find it extremely doubtful that your pet's history is a usual criteria for determining conflict of interest.
** Exactly. Why would Chloe's dog be any of her bosses' business?
** My only guess is maybe she didn't tell him. If he knew, yes, I'm pretty sure that would be seen as a major conflict of interest, so I guess he didn't know.
* Also, about those psychologists - what would be the consequences if the courts discovered that their hypnotherapy could be reversed with the noise of Big Ben?
** Well they'd be ruined. Or would possibly have to do more research to find out a way to stop that side effect. Or they could just make it a rule that their subjects can't live within a so-many mile radius of Big Ben.

** She's a famous figure from the catty world of fashion design, whose legal name is freakin' ''Cruella Deville''. Roger can't possibly be the first person to publicly poke fun at how ''eeeeeeevil'' her name sounds.

** I believe Great Britain's anti-defamation laws have a specific clause that exempts opinion, so Roger might be able to successfully argue that he'd made up the song on the spot based on a bad first impression.

*** It was an act of petty revenge against Roger and Anita (mostly Rodger) for actually standing up to her and initially refusing to sell the puppies.

** They don't see them as masters. The first movie has Pongo refer to Roger as his pet.

Added DiffLines:

** The fact that she went after the puppies while they still ''were'' puppies, rather than letting them grow bigger so they'd have bigger pelts to offer, suggests that Cruella ''specifically'' wanted their soft puppy-fur for her coats. By the time she gets out of prison, the dogs will all be fully grown and no longer fluffy enough for her plans.
