101 Dalmatians by Walt Disney Studios (Diamond Edition [DVD, Blu-Ray, Digital HD], 2015 [originally 1961], $36.99, 79 minutes, Rated G)
EverythingDogBlog is back and so are Disney’s Dalmatians – all 101 of them. Now you can get the Diamond Edition of 101 Dalmatians with a DVD, a Blu-Ray and HD Digital access for viewing anywhere and everywhere (see yesterday’s blog).
Who doesn’t like puppies? And Roger and Anita have their priorities right: the family photos on the wall include their dogs Perdita and Pongo, just like your family photos include your own Rover or King or Spot (and Kitty).
Told from Pongo’s point of view, the story of the 101 Dalmatians and their adventures has withstood the test of time and remains one of Disney’s all-time favorites with kids and grown-kids, both! Now it is available to bring home!
Quaint villages, sunrises and sunsets for Mom, a chase scene and crash for the kids, plus a “Dalmatian plantation”!
Oh, No! A Dognapping! Another one! And another and. . . .
Share the unforgettable story of the puppies and that most malevolent woman, Cruella de Vil. After all, a movie is only as great as its villain and Cruella de Vil is the greatest. Would you believe that Cruella and Anita actually used to be schoolmates?
Speaking of school, 101 Dalmatians is also educational with foreign (British English) vocabulary and locations kids can guess at (successfully), such as ‘pulling a snitch,’ ‘blimey,’ and ‘torch’ for flashlight.
Girl pups and dogs wearing collars wear blue collars while boys wear pink-red! Must be the convention in England!
You will learn that Dalmatians are born spotlessly white. Plus you’ll learn how to change a Dal into a Labrador Retriever. And back again.
And, stay tuned for the sequel! “Descendants” – where we meet Cruella’s (cute) son this summer.
Plus, with this Diamond Edition, you also get:
Cruella’s music video with Selena Gomez
Cruella: Drawn to be Bad (the devil personified)
