101 DALMATIANS (Theatrical Release USA 1961)


Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì

101 Dalmatians—classic Disney-animated fare—is a better watch than its live action remake. Voice casting is great and the character development very well done. Don’t miss this oldie…it competes very well, despite its age, with current animated fare. There’s a great deal of heart built into the movie’s storyline.

Storyline

An evil, fur-loving woman kidnaps 101 Dalmatian puppies.

Yes. This animated movie achieves classic status and deserves its place in the family home video collection. It works as a good child/adult share film.
