%% Before anyone adds Cruella de Vil as an example of CompleteMonster, bear in mind that according to the Disney CM list, she isn't. If you consider her one, please take it to the Western Animation Disney CM thread.

!The 1961 Film and its Sequel
* AdaptationDisplacement: Though not the worst adaptation displacement for a Disney film
* EarWorm: ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LEc0woB3piM Cruella de Vil]], Cruella de Vil... if she doesn't scare you, no evil thing will...!'' Arguably justified in its catchiness in that Roger's a musician.
** Two words: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bvIztMjI7a4 Kanine Krunchies]].
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Sgt. Tibbs was quite popular, possibly for being almost {{Keet}} and subverting CatsAreMean.
** Patch, through and through. 95% of all merchandise features him.
** Roger, for giving us the song "Cruella De Vil" is almost universally liked, especially because how much he enjoys it hamming the song up
* FoeYay: Seriously I cannot be the only one that thought Cruella had...er, bit of too much interest in Roger. Seriously, she's on a first name basis with him, relishes albeit playfully that he's "a fool" and jokes about his songs. And in the moment her offer to purchase the puppies for their fur and Roger rejects her, after she's finished going off on Annetta, the nanny and the dogs she storms off...only to return and call Roger an "idiot" and then storming off again. And in a later scene she singles out Roger of the grieving couple when the puppies are stolen and again thinks of him lovingly as a "fool".
* JerkassWoobie: Horace and Jasper could qualify considering they have to endure the berating of their BadBoss Cruella.
* LoveToHate: Cruella.
* MemeticMutation: "I'll get even! Just wait! You'll be sorry, you fools! You... YOU IDIOTS!!!" (SLAM!)

** [[http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-s_cYccezMLo/T_y9LXs3scI/AAAAAAAABDo/LWg72afqtlw/s1600/2.jpg Sergeant Tibbs would like to know just what the hell is going on here.]]
** "Blast this pen, blast this wretched, wretched ''pen!''"
* MisaimedFandom: Many fur fans actually like Cruella, especially the animated version, for her huge fox coat. And a lot of the mentions of fur, like sleeping between ermine sheets in the book, often just seem like a sybaritic {{Pretty in Mink}}.
* {{Sequelitis}}: ''Patch's London Adventure'' makes this the third version to have a sequel.
** But as far as Disney sequels go, it's one of the better ones.
* ViewerGenderConfusion: Pepper gets one speaking line during the entire film and her voice led many people to believe she was male.

!The Live Action Remake and its Sequel
* BrokenBase: The first live-action movie is a base breaker on its own compared to the animated version, but the sequel is even more of one. Was it better, worse, or on the same level as the first movie?
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NMWQz4u2zJ8 Rescue]] from the live-action movie. Disney even reused it for the VHS trailer for the 1997 copy of ''Disney/SleepingBeauty'' and the theatrical trailer for ''[[{{Doug}} Doug's 1st Movie]]''
* DracoInLeatherPants: Glenn Close's Cruella gets this, with a tragic traumatic childhood.
* EvilisSexy: Glenn Close's Cruella has some rather flattering outfits
* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: You should never give a second chance to anybody. S/he will most probably become evil again if s/he's anywhere near the Big Ben, anyway.
* HamAndCheese: It may not be six-time Oscar nominee Glenn Close's most profound role, but she makes a really good Cruella and is clearly having a ball hamming it up.
** In the sequel, fellow Oscar nominee Gerard Depardieu is also a CardCarryingVillain, made even more flamboyant by [[FashionVictimVillain ridiculous clothes]] that somewhat surpass Cruella's own.
* HellIsThatNoise: Mr. Skinner's wheezing.
* JustTrainWrong: In one scene in the sequel, Cruella De Vil travels on the Venice-Simplon Orient Express to Paris, hauled by preserved locomotive 'Flying Scotsman'. However, the train leaves from St. Pancras (whilst nowadays trains to Paris 'do' leave from St. Pancras, that wasn't the case in 2000), the train to Paris would have been the Eurostar, and while it is likely that Flying Scotsman hauled the VSOE at one time that year, it would have left from Victoria as an excursion train to points around Britain (steam locomotives are not permitted to operate in the Channel Tunnel).
* VillainDecay: Cruella was noticably less menacing in the second live action movie than she was in the first.
* TheWoobie: Oddball in ''102 Dalmatians''


!The TV Series
* {{Anvilicious}}: While the TV series has AnAesop in most episodes, they never jammed them into your head. The episode "Smoke Detectors"[[note]]The pups have to try and get Cruella to stop smoking so she can move back to her house instead of living with them because the fire from her cigarettes burnt down parts of her house from smoking and sleeping at the same time[[/note]], on the other hand, falls right under this.
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The sudden and one-time uses of a studio audience laugh track in "You Slipped a Disk" and "Chow About That?"
* CrackPairing: Lucky/[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Rainbow Dash]] has cropped up within the fandom.
* CreatorsPet: Spot is mostly disliked because she's a main character and EnsembleDarkhorse Two-Tone isn't (or Patch, thus filling out the four characterized puppies from the original book.)
* EarWorm: The theme song
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Two-Tone.
** Also Ivy De Vil in the series, mainly because she was ''much'' more competent than her Aunt Cruella and was a LittleMissSnarker and ServileSnarker rolled into one.
** Cruella's dog Vendella and ferret Scorch.
** This series has quite a bit of them. [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/EnsembleDarkhorse/WesternAnimation A list of them can be found here]].
* FanPreferredCouple: [[BadassAdorable Lucky]]/[[TimeTravelRomance Rebecca]] and [[LittleMissSnarker Cadpig]]/[[HandicappedBadass Tripod]] are two notable examples in the TV series fanbase.
* FoeYay: Cadpig and Mooch had this going on for a while, particularly in "My Fair Moochie".
* JerkassWoobie: In the series, the episode "Coup De Vil" actually turns Cruella into one.
** Several episodes of the series portray Cruella as a Jerkass Woobie / Jerk With A Heart Of Gold combination.
* MemeticMutation: "Yard sale? I love yard sales! Actually, I hate yard sales. Of course, the pros of a yard sale are the bargains, but the cons of a yard sale are that the items are used. Ick!"
** Cadpig's comment about "day old pizza"
* MoralEventHorizon: Pretty much everything [[spoiler: Dimsdale De Vil does in De Vil-Age Elder, including trying to use his descendant Cruella as a replacement to be trapped in Devilville for all eternity.]]
** Also Lt. Pug's extreme insults and maltreatment of Spot during the episode "Full Metal Pullet", which nearly broke Spot down into tears before she stood up for herself.
* OneSceneWonder: Rebecca, the adorable Scottish-accented carriage pup of "De Vil-Age Elder"
* TheScrappy: Lt. Pug.
** And Dumpling.
** And Swamp Rat.
** RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: The episode "Hog Tied" did portray Dumpling in a somewhat positive and sympathetic light and she did save Cadpig's life. So maybe she could be excused from this.
* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: The main message of "Full Metal Pullet" which is that true friends don't abandon each other for their own selfish needs, or watch each other get humiliated by others without standing up for them.
* ViewerGenderConfusion: Rolly, with his blue collar.
** How many here didn't know Spot the Chicken was a female until her gender was actually mentioned?
** The same could be said about Cadpig, since her voice and small size fit the requirements of the young boy character voiced by a female voice actress.
* VillainDecay: Cruella in the TV series, who is still a greedy criminal who hates dogs but is more of a conniving cartoonish villain than the nasty piece of work she was in the films. Also, even after the events of the film (which presumably are still part of this canon in some form), nobody else seems to hate her as much as they should (except Roger).
** MoralGuardians were likely opposed to the idea of vicious murder on kids' cartoon series.
* TheWoobie: This varies, but Rolly and Spot usually qualify for this.
** The episode "Hog Tied" actually turns Dumpling into one pretty effectively.
** Also Amber in "Beauty Pageant Pandemonium" when her dress is destroyed.
** And surprisingly [[spoiler: Mooch]] in "Twelve Angry Pups" considering the fact that [[spoiler: he was accused for a crime that he didn't actually commit.]]
* XMeetsY: ''101 Dalmatians'' meets ''{{WesternAnimation/Doug}}''.
** Alternatively, a Disney mashup of the "Garfield" and "Orson's Farm" segments of ''WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends''
