%% 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: Cruella seems to have a bit 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 was rejected by Roger, 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!''"
** In Israel, kids often call Cruella ‘debil’ (a word borrowed from French ''débil'' via Russian meaning ‘dumbass’).
* 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 PrettyInMink.
* {{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.
* VillainDecay: Cruella was noticably less menacing in the second live action movie than she was in the first (but still just as hammy).
* TheWoobie: Oddball in ''102 Dalmatians''
