One Hundred and One Dalmatians was the 17th animated feature film classic from Disney, released in 1061. The Dalmatians Pongo and Perdita produced a litter of fifteen adorable puppies who became the focus of an obsession by the villainous Cruella de Vil, who kidnapped them in a quest to make them into a fur coat. The puppies’ adventures as they met a host of follow captives and staged their escape made for one of the most beloved Disney films of all time.
