%% 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://img716.imageshack.us/img716/8582/1269567748473.gif Roger and Pongo have had enough of your bullshit]].
** [[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}}.
* NightmareFuel: Cruella ("-De Vil"), Cruella ("-De Vil, if she doesn't scare you, no evil thing will..."). And more.
** Likewise, the part where the dogs are hiding in the coal shed and suddenly Cruella is right there at the window, driving past ''really slowly'' and glaring in at them. [[FromBadToWorse It gets even worse]] when, shortly thereafter, this is repeated with Cruella going the other way.
** A very important example that combines with FridgeHorror. She's ordered her henchmen to kill puppies and in the most painful ways possible to have them skinned into a fur coat which is scary enough; now, consider the following: it's implied they were her ''regular employees'', so they do work for her ''all the time'', but acquiring fur illegally -- by ''stealing and killing puppies'' -- IS the only work ''she ever gives them'', and we are shown that she already had about ''fifty'' fur coats made up by the time the police caught her. Oh, God, those poor hundreds of puppies...
*** Of course, all but Pongo and Perdita's litter were actually bought and paid for. Doesn't excuse the killing of those poor puppies, but it does seem to lighten the blow just a wee bit.
** Just look [[PapaWolf Pongo]] and [[MamaBear Perdita's]] faces when they are facing off Jasper and Horace. They don't look so sweet anymore...
** [[http://i1.ytimg.com/vi/YAwiU7bHOTk/hqdefault.jpg The eyes]]
* {{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.
* TearJerker: In the sequel, when Thunderbolt reveals his lie, Patch is devastated. "But you said you'd help us…." Just how his voice breaks on that line; he'd trusted Thunderbolt, he'd thought he would know what to do.
** Watching Lil' Lightning as Thunderbolt unknowingly mocks him, in fact, considering the way he'd been treated it's no wonder he did a FaceHeelTurn and became a FalseFriend. The poor guy'd never been treated like a real friend to begin with.
* 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.
* FanDumb: After the release of the live-action version, people rushed to get Dalmatians as pets. Dalmatians are highly energetic and need plenty of room and time for exercise, and are prone to hearing problems. Many of the Dalmatians adopted during this craze ended up surrendered to shelters or dumped.
* 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).
* NightmareFuel: Mr. Skinner in the first live-action movie (the name alone says it all...)
** Glen Close's Cruella as well. When not being a LargeHam, there are moments where she's legitimately terrifying.
** Say what you will about 102, but Cruella's transforming back to her old self is full of Nightmare Fuel. It shows that Glen Close still got it.
--> '''Cruella:''' [[ThatManIsDead Ella is gone]] [[HesBack and Cruella IS BACK!!!!]] [[EvilLaugh HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA!!!]]
** Not to mention when she turns, the whole of London suddenly changes into a Hell-world filled with nothing more than white and black dots! The building, the humans, '''EVERYTHING!!'''
** Even the ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vlq1L-A8asM‎ trailer]]'' to the sequel has nightmare fuel! It starts out all quaint and innocent with a puppy and a catchy theme song, but it's [[JumpScare interrupted by lightning and abruptly shifts to a close-up of Cruella]], who [[EvilLaugh cackles ominously]] and says, "Surprise!"
* 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?"
* 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.)
* CompleteMonster: [[spoiler: Dimsdale De Vil in "De Vil-Age Elder" who was so terrible that a curse was placed on him by Hester Hen to remain in his hometown of Devilville for all of eternity with the people he tormented in his life to be permanently happy, and to break the curse he nearly traps the Dearlys the main pups, Spot, and his own descendant Cruella inside the town to take his place so he can be free. Luckily Spot manages to foil his plan at the last moment.]]
* 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".
* FridgeLogic: Originally, the main pups ([[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and chicken]]) of the show were going to include Lucky, Cadpig, Rolly, Patch, Penny and Spot. However, Disney thought that having six main characters would be too much, so Patch was DemotedToExtra and Penny was dropped all together. Which raises the question: why is six too much? As around the same time, [[WesternAnimation/{{Recess}} another Disney show premiered which had six main characters]].
* FridgeHorror: One has to wonder if Dipstick's [[TheDitz low intelligence]] might be the result of that flea infestation cutting off a lot of blood to his brain. Then again, a dog having ''that'' many fleas is disturbing in itself.
* 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"
* SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome: The TV series had its fair share, but one in particular from the episode "Full Metal Pullet" has Spot being the only member of Lucky's group standing up to Lt. Pug after she was PickedLast out of everyone.
** Also surprisingly, Cruella gets one for standing up to [[AbusiveParents her terrible mother Malevola De Vil]] in the episode "Coup De Vil".
** Cadpig has [[WomanScorned a notable moment]] in "My Fair Moochie" when she beats the ever-living crap out of El Diablo, an unmovable Chihuahua who had casually flicked everyone else out of the ring.
** Aside from ''all'' of her [[GreatDetective Pullet Marlow]] moments, Spot has an ''epic'' on in "Full Metal Pullet" when she stands up to Lt. Pug after he constantly berates and insults her and gives him an amazing TheReasonYouSuckSpeech in the process.
* 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.
* SugarWiki/NeedsMoreLove
* NightmareFuel: Given how Cadpig has one of the most expressive faces out of the TV series cast, she was bound to have a NightmareFace at some point. [[http://s163.photobucket.com/user/person_hi/media/screenshot7.jpg.html One particularly notable expression]] shows her with bloodshot eyes and a SlasherSmile composed of [[MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily shark-like teeth]]. She also gives a nasty one in "My Fair Moochie" when [[JumpScare she whirls onto Mooch]] with eyes glaring and teeth bared. Guess we can say she gets it from her parents.
** Cruella's StartOfDarkness in the Christmas episode features [[EnfanteTerrible many]] [[NightmareFace scenes]] [[BurnBabyBurn of]] [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic this]].
** Ivy's regular face is cute and adorable, but when she gets angry or sinister, then her face truly lives up to this trope.
--> Ivy: "I'm cute as a button, and ready for war!"
* 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.
* TearJerker: Lucky and Rebecca's parting at the end of "De Vil-Age Elder".
** Watching Rolly get bullied by his friends in the beginning of "Roll Out The Pork Barrel" and Spot get bullied by [[TheScrappy Lt. Pug]] in "Full Metal Pullet" easily qualify for this, especially if you've been bullied in real life. The latter gets a pretty big WhatTheHellHero speech from Cadpig to Lucky.
* 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''
