->''"Cruella De Vil, Cruella De Vil\\
If she doesn't scare you, no evil thing will\\
To see her is to take a sudden... ''chill''\\
Cruella... Cruella...\\
She's like a spider waiting for the... ''kill''\\
Look out for Cruella De Vil"''
-->-- [[TheVillainSucksSong "Cruella]] [[EarWorm De Vil"]] by '''Bill Lee'''

Entry #17 in the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon, ''Literature/TheHundredAndOneDalmatians'' was adapted for animation by [[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon Walt Disney Pictures]] as ''One Hundred and One Dalmatians''.[[note]]Usually promoted with the Arabic numeral as ''101 Dalmatians''.[[/note]] The second Disney animated film to be set unambiguously in contemporary times, this 1961 production was also the first to use xerography to ease the inking process and make a film with this much technical complexity (the 101 dogs and their collective innumerable spots) possible. Unfortunately, financial setbacks at the studio, especially in the wake of Creator/WaltDisney's death in 1966, made the process the norm and the technique, now dubbed Disney's "scratchy outline" period, plagued the studio's features for 16 years until technological improvements allowed for softer xeroroxing on ''Disney/TheRescuers''.

Although the original children's novel is [[AdaptationDisplacement far less remembered than the Walt Disney movie based on it]], (and ''it'' had a sequel, too), this is one of the most faithful adaptations Disney has ever done.

It was followed by several sequels in different media:

* ''Film/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians'' (1996), the live-action remake.
** ''Film/OneHundredAndTwoDalmatians'', the 2000 sequel to the movie.
* ''WesternAnimation/OneHundredAndOneDalmatiansTheSeries'' (1997), the animated series.
* ''WesternAnimation/OneHundredAndOneDalmatianStreet'' (2018), another animated series.

The Disney version got a direct animated sequel in 2003 in ''[[Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatiansIIPatchsLondonAdventure 101 Dalmatians II: Patch's London Adventure]]'', in which Pongo and Perdy's son Patch is accidentally left behind when the family moves to the country, and feeling unappreciated, goes to find his idol Thunderbolt to be on his show.

In addition to the movies, the show, and the book, three video games were made. One was an entry in the ''VideoGame/DisneysAnimatedStorybook'' series, another was the PointAndClickGame ''VideoGame/OneHundredAndOneDalmatiansEscapeFromDeVilManor'', and the last was ''VideoGame/OneHundredAndTwoDalmatiansPuppiesToTheRescue'', a traditional 3D ActionAdventure PlatformGame. The latter two games were based on the live-action films, but were styled after the original animated film.

!!The Disney Adaptation (1961) provide examples of:

* ActuallyPrettyFunny:
** Roger and Anita laugh following the MeetCute scene when Anita tries to wipe herself dry with a handkerchief, only to find it's sodden, and Roger's handkerchief is as well.
** Pongo enjoys Roger's song and impression of "Cruella de Ville" after she barges in and asks about Perdita's unborn puppies. Anita tries to put on an [[invoked]] DudeNotFunny front since she's trying to be civil to Cruella but eventually she breaks down giggling offscreen when Roger waltzes with her to the melody.
* AdaptationDistillation: Both the original author ''and'' Disney himself praised the story's streamlining.
* AdaptationalUgliness: The original book illustrations show Cruella as being fairly attractive looking in spite of her cold blooded personality. The movie in contrast makes her [[{{Gonk}} very ugly]] to fit her more eccentric personality in the adaptation.
* AdaptationNameChange: Mr. and Mrs. Dearly were changed to Roger and Anita Radcliffe for the animated movie. Later adaptations give them the given names from the movie and the surname from the book. Also, Saul Badun becomes Horace, Roly Poly becomes simply Rolly, and Lt. Tib becomes Sgt. Tibbs (with that particular cat also getting a [[GenderFlip sex change]] in the process).
* AdaptedOut: A few non important character from the novel were removed like Cruella's husband and cat, Cadpig (although she appeared in the animated series), and Perdita's old boyfriend Prince (who was mainly important in the book as dalmatian number 101 and part of an implied BetaCouple.)
* AdultFear:
** Perdita's reaction to hearing that Cruella wants her puppies. She tearfully tells Pongo that she was so happy before, but now wishes they weren't having any.
** Lucky is stillborn; only Roger's persistence at CleanPrettyReliable saves him.
** How Horace and Jasper break into the flat; after putting on a BavarianFireDrill that fails, they simply charge their way in, having Jasper distract Nanny by locking her up in a room while Horace collects the puppies. After they leave and Nanny finds the puppies gone, she runs into the streets calling for help and crying.
** The kidnapping of the puppies is very much presented as if it was Roger's and Anita's children who were taken as well as Pongo and Perdita's.
** The idea of having your children (or pets) kidnapped is bad enough, but imagine them being kidnapped by an insane SerialKiller who wants to ''wear their skin''.
* {{Angrish}}: When Cruella comes to claim the puppies, Roger starts stuttering in anger.
* ArtisticLicenceGeography: An American road sign appears in the British countryside during the climatic car chase.
* BadassBystander: The van driver who has to deal with Cruella ramming him several times in the climax, hoping to first send him in the snow and then off a cliff. He merely yells at her, mutters, "Crazy woman driver," and focuses on keeping the van on the road.
* BavarianFireDrill: DoubleSubverted. Horace and Jasper pretend to be electric company repairman making a surprise inspection, but Nanny won't let them in while Roger and Anita are out of the flat. Jasper then barges in, distracts Nanny by locking her in a room, and leaves once Horace has nabbed all the puppies.
* BerserkButton: Cruella seems like a somewhat pleasant woman at first, if a bit snide and condescending, but she ''really'' didn't like being told the Radcliffes weren't interested in selling the puppies.
* BewareTheNiceOnes:
** Roger may be a goofball with NoSocialSkills, but you don't barge into his flat right after he's saved a stillborn puppy, make several catty remarks about calling the newborns "little white rats," and then have the gall to "buy them all" expecting to get an acceptance.
** Pongo and Perdita are as charming and adorable as animated dogs can be. As long as you don't [[MamaBear mess with]] [[PapaWolf their children.]]
* BigDamnHeroes: Pongo and Perdita crashing into Hell Hall just in time to stop Horace and Jasper from killing their puppies.
* BigEater: Rolly is the largest puppy, and he's always complaining about how hungry he is.
* BigOlEyebrows: Horace and Jasper both have these.
* BigShutUp: Cruella yells this at Horace and Jasper a lot. It [[IronicEcho comes back later]] as she's having a tantrum over having lost the puppies and ending up in a ditch, much to the irritation of Jasper.
* {{Bowdlerize}}: Promotional stills of the Diamond Edition Blu-Ray release edited out Cruella's Cigar and smoke in her shots, although it was left in the film proper with a PSA against smoking added to the trailers on the disc.
* ButtBiter: Pongo gives Jasper a painful chomp to the rear at one point.
* ButtMonkey: Both of the Baduns, but Horace in particular gets slapped around by Jasper as well as Cruella. And of course neither of them are any real match for the dogs.
* TheCameo: Jock and Peg (along with the bulldog from the pound who seems to have had puppies with her) from ''Disney/LadyAndTheTramp'' make cameos during the citywide dog barking scene.
** Tramp and Lady themselves show up in the very same scene, Tramp on top of a car and Lady in the street.
* CaninesPrimaryFelinesSecondary: Sergeant Tibbs the heroic cat ranks lower than Colonel the dog. Interestingly, they both rank lower than the horse, Captain. Also, Sergeant Tibbs is a lone cat in a movie with a cast made up mostly of dogs.
** Captain is below Colonel in army ranks. It proceeds as Lieutenant, Captain, Major, Colonel, General. (And since the Colonel gives the horse captain orders, we can only assume they're using army ranks.)
* CatScare: Happens twice. The first time, Tibbs is right next to a bottle of rum; Jasper tries to take a swig from the bottle and mistakenly tries to drink the cat. The second time is when Tibbs is helping the puppies to hide. Tibbs can't take on Horace and Jasper on his own, but when Jasper looks under the bed, the ensuing MEEEOOWWWW and wild leap from Tibbs startles Jasper enough for the puppies to run past him.
* CeilingBanger: Nanny did this to get Roger to take a break from writing songs.
%% Zero Context example, don't uncomment without fleshing out
%%* ChaseScene
* ChekhovsGunman: The dogs that Pongo sees strolling on the street before Perdita and Anita appear later reappear to relay the message that the puppies have been stolen.
* ClothesMakeTheLegend: One of the most famous fur coats ever. Ironic considering it never actually gets made.
* CombatPragmatist: As fierce as they were against Horace and Jasper, Pongo and Perdita actually dispose of them by barely touching them at all, instead using their lair's surroundings against them or fooling them into hurting themselves in their own buffoonery.
* CompositeCharacter:
** Perdita is the name of Pongo's wife in this adaptation (in the book his wife was named Missis and Perdita was a separate character).
** Nanny Cook and Nanny Butler are merged into one "Nanny."
** Cadpig, the small and delicate puppy, is merged with Lucky, the brave leader.
* ConversationalTroping: The bit where they watch Thunderbolt's show ("Ol' Thunder always wins!").
* CoolCar: Cruella's car. A lot of people have put effort into trying to figure out what model it is. It's just too bad that Cruella's obsession with making a fur coat out of the dalmatians led her to trash the car...
** It looks like it's part Duesenberg, but what would one of those be doing in London?
* CPRCleanPrettyReliable: One of the 15 (the eventual "Lucky") was apparently stillborn, leading Roger to get an idea, rubbing the pup to stimulate it to breathe.
* CreepyJazzMusic: Roger sings a jazzy TheVillainSucksSong about Cruella de Vil, which describes how wicked and heartless she is.
* UsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfAnimation: Somewhat overlaps with UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation, but this is clearly where the Dark Ages found solid rooting in Disney animation. Still one of the most entertaining Disney features from any era.
* DeusExMachina: The Dalmatians had ''nothing'' to do with their final escape from the villains. It was only by pure luck that the Baduns yanked out the steering wheel, lost control of their truck, and T-boned Cruella's car.
* DisneyAcidSequence: The oepning credits.
* DistinguishedGentlemansPipe: Roger is rarely seen without his pipe in the original film.
* TheDogBitesBack: Not one of the dogs, but at the end as Cruella is having her sobbing VillainousBreakdown which involves verbally assaulting Horace and Jasper some more, Jasper finally has enough and says "Awww, SHADDAP!".
* DogsAreDumb: Subverted with most of them, but played straight with the Colonel. In the book, the Colonel is much less bumbling and more of an actual military commander, teaching the dogs how to fight and promoting them whenever they do something awesome.
* DogWalksYou: Happens with Pongo and Roger in the early parts of the movie, as part of the MeetCute.
* DoomedNewClothes: Anita has a new spring suit on as she walks Perdita. Cue the MeetCute, and she's sopping wet in a pond. What we go through for love, huh?
* DoorSlamsYou: When Cruella shows up looking to buy the puppies, she slams poor Nanny.
** Also happens later in the film. At one point Cruella is in her car in the street and yells for Jasper and Horace, who are inside a wooden building with a locked barn-style door that leads out to the street. They try to break down the door, and they knock it down right into her face, as it turns out she was parked right outside, leaning out the window.
* DopeSlap: Jasper's usual response to Horace's DumbassHasAPoint moments.
* DrivesLikeCrazy: Cruella. Big time. Horace and Jasper go a little crazy at the end as well, and actually ''yank the steering wheel off''.
* DumbassHasAPoint: Horace is clearly not the sharpest tool in the shed, but by assuming that dogs think the way people do (which in this movie, they do), he is constantly suggesting what the dogs are actually up to when trying to evade them. He's almost always right, but Jasper will have none of it.
* EvilDetectingDog: Just about every dog can tell Cruella is pure evil.
* EvilFormerFriend: Cruella was ''apparently'' one of Anita's old school chums - Heaven knows why, since she's an absolute terror even when she's trying to be ''friendly''. Roger immediately takes a disliking to her and quickly (and correctly) assumes that she kidnapped the puppies.
* EvilIsHammy: Cruella's habit of ChewingTheScenery is one of the most fondly-remembered things about the movie.
* EvilLaugh: Roger has one when he sings about Cruella.
* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: Sadly, Cruella's obsession with the dalmatian fur coat she will never have ultimately lands her in this trope.
* FairytaleWeddingDress: Averted. Anita's wearing what looks like a modest dress similar in style to her Spring outfit.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: One of the lines in the Cruella de Vil song (although this was cut from the actual movie, but does appear in music video versions of the song) is ''all innocent children had better beware.'' Roger had no idea how accurate that statement was about Cruella later turned out to be (well, if you're a ''dalmatian'' child anyhow).
* GenderFlip: The character of Sergeant Tibbs (Tibb, in the novel) is changed in this adaptation from female to male. And on a more minor level, so is the puppy whose life Mr. Dearly/Roger saves at birth, given that this puppy is hinted to be Lucky -- not Cadpig, as in the book.
* GoodSmokingEvilSmoking: Roger's DistinguishedGentlemansPipe vs Cruella's cigarette with holder.
* {{Gonk}}: Cruella is intentionally designed to be as ugly as sin in this adaptation to match her eccentric personality.
* HappilyMarried: Pongo and Perdita and their "pets" Roger and Anita.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Anita honestly trusts Cruella, mainly due to them being old schoolmates, while no one else feels very fondly of her at all.
-->'''Anita''': Roger, I admit she's eccentric but she's not a thief.\\
'''Roger''': Well, she's still #1 suspect in my book!
* HypercompetentSidekick: Sergeant Tibbs and The Captain to The Colonel.
* HypocriticalHumor: [[DrivesLikeCrazy Cruella]] telling Horace and Jasper, "Watch your driving, you imbeciles! You wanna get nabbed by the police?!"
* IDontLikeTheSoundOfThatPlace: Hell Hall.
* JumpScare: Roger and Pongo get one from Nanny of all people when she announces that THE PUPPIES ARE HERE!!!
* JustInTime: The moment when the Baduns have cornered Sgt. Tibbs and the puppies and are about to kill them, Pongo and Perdita smash through a window and attack the would-be murderers.
* KnightOfCerebus: The film is a sweet romantic comedy before Cruella rolls in.
* LaughablyEvil: As ruthless as Cruella and her goons are in stealing (and attempted murder of) the puppies, their overblown whimsy and bumbling make up a lot of the movie's humor. It helps that Roger starts singing TheVillainSucksSong and then starts playing it in the attic as background noise when Cruella first appears onscreen.
* LightIsNotGood: Cruella De Vil dresses in a light colored fur coat, but she is the villain.
* LimitedAnimation: Not the whole movie, but the Kanine Krunchies commercial is animated in the limited style of animated commercials of the sixties.
* LiteralAssKicking: Horace and Jasper get kicked by Sergeant the horse.
* TheLoad:
** Rolly -- he almost gets the puppies caught several times, barely fits through the hole in the wall because of his weight, yelping when Tibbs grabs his tail, being the only one to slip on the ice, and almost sliding in line of Jasper's torch and complaining constantly about being hungry.
** Lucky, though to a lesser extent; his only issue being his TV addiction, which nearly interferes with ''Tibbs trying to rescue him''.
* LoveAtFirstSight: Pongo instantly takes to Perdita, calling her "the most beautiful creature on four legs."
* MamaBear: As if traveling through the English countryside in the middle of winter to save their puppies wasn't enough, Pongo and Perdita are '''scary''' when they face off against Horace and Jasper, snarling with bared teeth and their eyes flashing red. Considering they just interrupted the Baduns as they were about to '''bludgeon their children to death''', who can blame them?
* MeetCute: Pongo was probably going for more of a conventional BoyMeetsGirl scenario, but his intervention leads to Roger and Anita's (and consequently his and Perdita's) first meeting starting out as this.
* MenCantKeepHouse: Commented on by Pongo at the beginning of the film, Roger's flat is a horror.
* NamedByTheAdaptation: In the book, only four of the puppies are given names: Lucky, Patch, Roly Poly and Cadpig. In the movie, while dropping Cadpig ([[CompositeCharacter her characterization passed on to Lucky]]) and simplifying Roly Poly's name to just "Rolly," gives us the additional puppy names Freckles, Penny and Pepper.
* NearVillainVictory: [[spoiler:If Horace hadn't accidentally pulled off the steering wheel to the Baduns truck causing them to crash into Cruella, there's no way the dogs would have escaped her -- her car was literally hanging onto the van. That's how very, ''very'' badly Cruella wants that fur coat.]]
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Sergeant Tibbs has the horse Captain kick Horace and Jasper into a wall... [[spoiler:and from there, the two see the dogs' footprints in the snow. Oops.]]
* NightmareFace: Cruella makes a particularly frightening one during the last minute(s) of the CarChase before Jasper and Horace crash into her.
** Pongo and Perdita are scary too when they get their GameFace on.
* NotGoodWithRejection: Cruella makes this abundantly clear to the Radcliffes after they refuse to sell her the puppies and she promises to have her revenge.
* NoSocialSkills: Roger, at least where Cruella is concerned. Pongo even lampshades how in the park he'll just sit and smoke a pipe, ignoring the beautiful lady with her spotted dog, but Roger is enough of a gentleman to help her out of the pond where they both fall and offer his coat and handkerchief.
* OhCrap:
** Sergeant Tibbs gets this look after one of the Baduns grabs him by the neck, mistaking him for a bottle of wine.
** A more dramatic one in the climax from [[spoiler:Pongo and Perdita, when Cruella manages to ram her car into the back of the van they're trying to escape in]].
** Pongo and Perdy's understandably horrified response to finding out that their puppies are being held at "the De Vil place".
** Cruella gets one during the climactic chase when she looks up and realizes that she's headed straight into a ravine.
* ParentalBonus: At the end, when Pongo and Perdita return to the flat with their own puppies plus 84 extra, Anita asks "But where did they all come from?". Roger responds by patting Pongo on the head and saying "Pongo, you old rascal!".
* PinkGirlBlueBoy: Averted and possibly even ''in''verted with the dogs' collars: Pongo and the male puppies wear red collars, while Perdita and the female puppies wear blue ones. At the time the movie was made, [[TrueBlueFemininity blue was considered feminine]] and reds masculine. Later adaptations didn't care as much. [[OffModel Nor did the tie-in merchandise artists.]]
* PullingTheRugOut: Perdita takes out Horace by yanking the rug out from under him, causing him to fall into the fireplace.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: After driving her car out of the ditch in mad determination and trashing it pretty good, Cruella's eyes briefly turn red as she barrels after the truck.
* {{Rotoscoping}}: Sort of. Cruella's car was a white model with outlines drawn on the edges shot in stop-motion in front of a white background with a high exposure; the result was then photocopied onto the cells.
* SarcasmMode: When Horace suggests to Jasper that [[DumbassHasAPoint the puppies have disguised themselves using soot]], Jasper says jokingly, "Say now! Horace, that's just what they did. Dogs is always paintin' themselves black! (hits Horace in the head) YOU IDIOT!"
* SceneryPorn: In a retro and colorful way that perfectly complements the characters' angular designs.
* SharePhrase: One really gets the sense that the dialogue editors loved the word "idiot".
** To help get the point across: Early in the movie there's a gag where a character on the phone with Cruella says "You idiot!" to someone else in the room, but Cruella hears it and thinks the line was meant for her. A little while later, still not even halfway through the film, the ''exact same gag'' is repeated with different characters (but still Cruella on the other line).
* ShoutOut:
** The WesternAnimation/SillySymphonies short ''Springtime'' briefly appears on the TV the pups are watching.
** During the scene where Pongo sends a message to all the dogs in London, various dogs from ''Disney/LadyAndTheTramp'' make a cameo. Which is interesting, since that movie takes place in New Haven, CT.
** "What's My Crime?", a favorite TV show of the Baduns, is pretty clearly in homage to ''Series/WhatsMyLine''.
* ShowWithinAShow:
** "The Thunderbolt Adventure Hour".
** "What's My Crime?"
* ShutUpHannibal: When Cruella barges into the Radcliffe's flat just minutes after the puppies are born, she takes one look at Lucky (who Roger had just saved from being stillborn) and makes several nasty, catty remarks about the puppies, which angers Nanny enough to get in Cruella's face and tell her off.
-->'''Cruella''': "15? 15 puppies?! How marvelous! How marvelous! How perfectly -- ugh! Oh, the devil take it, they're mongrels. No spots! No spots at all! What a horrid little white rat!"
-->'''Nanny''': "They're ''not'' mongrels! They'll get their spots! Just wait and see!"
* SourceMusic: All throughout Cruella's first scene, Roger plays TheVillainSucksSong as loud and obnoxiously as he possibly can, utilizing a piano, a trumpet, and a trombone by turn.
* StylisticSuck: The Kanine Krunchies commercial that the pups are watching is animated in the LimitedAnimation style typical for animated TV commercials of the time.
* TerribleTrio: Cruella De Vil and her henchmen Jasper and Horace are textbook cases.
* ThoseTwoBadGuys: Horace and Jasper.
* ThroughAFaceFullOfFur: Horace's face turns three shades of red from the heat of the flames in the fireplace on his rear, when Perdita snatches a rug out from under him and causes him to fall back there.
* VillainousBreakdown: Cruella during the climactic ChaseScene. This is especially acute after she accidentally drives her car into a ditch and, in driving it out, accidentally trashes it on some thorny brush. By now, she is plenty pissed off, and it's become clear that it's the dalmatians or her -- and she doesn't care who gets in her way.
** In the book, her hair changes color with the shock of her defeat. The black half turns white... and the white half turns green!
* TheVillainSucksSong: You know the one. It probably got published either because Cruella's universally acknowledged as a horrible person, or the publishers thought it was a made-up name.
* WatchThePaintJob: Cruella epicly trashes and then wrecks her ''own'' presumably-valuable classic car in her rage-induced pursuit of the puppies. It even returns in [[Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatiansIIPatchsLondonAdventure the sequel]], having apparently been very cheaply slapped back together. (Guess she's not as rich as she comes across.)
* WeUsedToBeFriends: Anita and Cruella appear to be old schoolmates and still on good terms with each other at the start of the movie, but after Roger refuses Cruella's offer to buy their newborn puppies, Cruella angrily renounces her friendship with Anita. Still, Cruella decides to call up Anita later just to see how they feel about their puppies being kidnapped, and the polite Anita is still on speaking terms with her. Anita also defends Cruella to Roger after the call, admitting that she's eccentric, but not believing that she was responsible for the kidnapping.
* WingdingEyes: To go along with Cruella's NightmareFace during the chase, especially as she tries to ram her car in the back of the van the Dalmatians are trying to escape in.
* WomenDrivers: Cruella DrivesLikeCrazy, and a truck driver even cites this trope at one point. {{Justified|Trope}} by Cruella being completely AxCrazy.
* YouShallNotPass: Captain, Colonel, and Tibbs do this for the Pongos at the old farmhouse, and later the Labrador at Dinsford does it as well -- attacking Jasper and Horace so the Dalmatians can escape.
