!!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.

** Or yet another thing: Anita was wrong when she said that Cruella would be upset of the song. You know, there's a plenty of Disney villains that know they're evil, and love to be the bad guys ! Alright, it's not really shown that Cruella is like that, but they aren't either evidences against it. So perhaps she took the song as a compliment. Of course, she could have insincerely sued them so she could kidnap the puppies more easily, but she did not need to, did she ?

** There is a scene where
she ?
says, "Roger's song!" and laughs uproariously. She genuinely thinks it's funny. Suing probably hasn't even occurred to her.

* How did the bad guys plan to round up and capture all 99 puppies again once they caught up to them?

** Black dogs, dark night...it's plausible that no one would notice them if they kept to the shadows. Plus there is the implication that it is Christmas Eve. There probably wouldn't be too many people out and about, and if anyone had been and said, "I just saw a giant pack of black dogs! I think the [[Literature/HarryPotter grims]] are out to get us all," it would probably be dismissed as someone hitting the eggnog a bit too hard.

* Why do Lucky, Cadpig and Rolly refer to Roger and Anita ''by their names'' instead of calling them their masters or something? The fact that they refer to their masters by their names seems to be just... rude.

* The Bark Brigade. If the TV Series is anything to go by, ninety dalmatians are soldiers in the Bark Brigade. Including women, sure, that's the norm in Israel Defense Forces, but what's about the fact that the aforementioned ninety soldiers are ''[[UnfortunateImplications children]]''?
