In this parody of ''Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians'' (both the cartoon and live-action films), Santa's Little Helper cuts a destructive path across the Simpson house, which leads him to the dog track from "Simpsons Roasting On an Open Fire," where he mates with a female dog racer named "She's The Fastest" and becomes the father of 25 greyhound pups that Mr. Burns wants for his wardrobe.

* CelebrityResemblance: Mr. Burns thinks one of the dogs standing on its hind legs looks like Rory Calhoun, of all people. What makes this particularly funny is that Smithers immediately knows who Burns is referring too, despite just a vague description given.

** Bart calling She's The Fastest a "bitch," which Marge feels is wrong. However, like Bart using "bastard" to describe Homer's half-brother[[note]]since he was born out of wedlock, which is what "bastard" originally means[[/note]], Bart is using "bitch" right in this context, since She's the Fastest is a female dog and that's the real definition of that word. However, because "bitch" is used more as a derogatory term for a woman or a man who doesn't act manly (or to describe something that's unfair or awful, as seen in the phrase "Life's a bitch and then you die"), people rarely use the word "bitch" to mean "female dog."

* NeedleInAStackOfNeedles[=/=]ShellGame: Burns has decided to spare one of the puppies after it stands up on its hind legs. Bart hides him among the other puppies to keep Burns from shooting them all. Burns tries to single him out by having him do his trick, but Bart then dangles some socks behind Burns to get all the dogs to stand up.

* MeaningfulName: Parodied during the dog race, where Homer tells Marge he bet on She's The Fastest based solely on her name. Marge tells him that STF's name shouldn't be taken literally, but not only does STF take the lead in the race, but the announcer reveals the names of two other race dogs: "Always Comes In Second" and "I'm Number Three".
