This was the last Disney animated feature (1961) that Uncle Walt lived to see through personally; it can't be a coincidence that it's also the last Disney animated feature of real depth and emotional authenticity.

If there's one thing that's absolutely first-rate about the film, it's the character of Cruella.

Dog-lovers, in particular, will go ga-ga for this, but this remarkably fresh and funny period tale (set in England, fact fans) has all the ebullience and lovability of its titular characters.

101 Dalmatians has a lilting, lyrical charm that few other Disney films achieve.

The canine crew seems more real and infinitely more likeable than the humans, and this story is an enjoyable today as it was decades ago.

As one of many delightful little aspects of the film, notice how the owners and their dogs look so much alike.
