Premise

After Roger and Anita (and Pongo and Perdita) get married, Perdita gives birth to 15 Dalmatian puppies. Cruella De Vil, who is known to Anita from their school years, offers the human couple a large sum of money in return for the puppies so that she can make a dog-skin coat out of them. The human couple refuses, but Cruella, who won't take no for an answer, hires Jasper and Horace Badun to kidnap the puppies. Once the puppies are kidnapped, it is up to Pongo and Perdita, along with the help of some animal friends they meet along the way, to rescue them along with the 84 other puppies in Cruella's possession. Jasper and Horace in their truck and Cruella in her car race after a van with the Dalmatians inside. Trying to cut the van off from two different directions, the villains' vehicles collide with one another while the dogs go to safety. Roger and Anita decide to raise the 84 other dogs along with their seventeen, so making 101 Dalmatians. The Dalmatian is a breed of dog, noted for its white coat with either black or liver spots. ... Trinomial name Canis lupus familiaris The Dog is a canine carnivorous mammal that has been domesticated for at least 14,000 years and perhaps for as long as 150,000 years based on recent evidence. ...


Production

The production of the film signaled a change in the graphic style of Disney's animation. This occurred with the introduction of Xerography which eased graphic reproduction requirements, but at the price of being unable to deviate from a scratchy outline style because of the new (and time and money saving) technology's limitations, recognizable by its thick black lines. Since the line would not have fit the "round" Disney drawing style used until then (with the exception of Sleeping Beauty), a more graphic, angular style was chosen for this, and subsequent film. Rotoscoping, a technique formerly used for tracing live action human characters into animated drawings, became less important. Chester F. Carlson Xerography (or Electrophotography) is a photocopying technique developed by Chester Carlson in 1938 and patented on October 6, 1942. ... Sleeping Beauty is a 1959 animated feature produced by Walt Disney Productions and originally released to theatres on January 29, 1959. ... Rotoscoping is an animation technique in which animators trace over live-action film movement, frame by frame, for use in animated films. ... In film and video, live action refers to works that are acted out by flesh-and-blood actors, as opposed to animation. ...


The technology change also happened when Disney cut its animation department after the economical failure of the very expensive Sleeping Beauty, resulting in a reduction of staff from well over 500 to less than 100 and fewer resources put into the movies. Walt Disney, who at this point had started to direct his attention more towards television and his Disneyland amusement park and less on his animated features, disliked this development. But all animated Disney films use xerography today without Walt Disney after his death, but after Walt's death, Walt's 2 last xerography film were The Jungle Book and The Aristocats The "sketchy" graphic style would, however, remain the norm at Disney for years until the technology improved prior to the release of The Rescuers to allow a softer look. In later animated features the Xeroxed lines could be printed in different colors. In which, the xerography today were not scratchy. Unlike many other Walt Disney animated features, One Hundred and One Dalmatians only features one song in it, "Cruella De Vil" (ironic, considering that Roger was a professional songwriter). Even this song isn't sung to its entirety. The only other song is Dalmatian Plantation, which only contains two lines and is sung as a closer. The MPAA was close to re-rating this movie due to the new criteria about smoking.

In the original book, Pongo was mated with a "Missus Pongo", and Perdita was a lost female that was taken in to help wet-nurse the original 15 puppies. Perdita's mate was missing, but appeared up at the end. The four adult dogs were condensed into two in the film, and Disney made up for the missing adult dogs by adding two stolen puppies to Cruella's stash. In addition, Roger and Anita in the film are named "Mr. and Mrs. Dearly" in the book. This was the first animated Disney feature to take place in a contemporary setting.

Most recently, 101 Dalmatians II: Patch's London Adventure was released direct-to-video, as a sequel to their 1961 animated film. Released on January 21, 2003, it returns closer to the style of the movie, but still slightly simplifying the imagery. The movie took a musical-like approach, with almost double the amount of songs compared to the original, some of which were in the original film as well.
