101 Dalmatians is one of Disney’s most loved cartoon classics, and now a it's back on DVD for the first time in nearly a decade. Kidzworld takes a look at the new must-have for you Disney collection.

Puppy Love

Pongo is a dalmatian who lives in London with his owner, Roger. Roger is a songwriter and spends most of the day writing, but Pongo is bored and decides to find Roger a wife and a mate for himself. Luckily, he spots Anita and Perdita in the park one day, and after a funny encounter, both couples fall in love.

Puppy Fur Coats

Soon Roger and Anita are married and Pongo and Perdita have puppies. 15 little spotted puppies actually. Then Cruella De Vil shows up. She’s a scary old woman who wants to collect dalmatian puppies to make a fur coat. She offers Roger and Anita a lot of money for their puppies, but they refuse. Cruella won’t take no for an answer, though, and hires Jasper and Horace Badun to kidnap the puppies. With the puppies gone, Pongo and Perdita are heartbroken, and Roger and Anita can’t find the puppies anywhere.

The Twilight Bark

As a last resort, Pongo and Perdita use the "Twilight Bark", a dog gossip chain, to ask other dogs to look for the puppies and it works! With some help from new friends, Pongo and Perdita rescue the puppies, plus 84 other Dalmatians from the De Vil mansion. Now all 101 dalmatians have to get back to London safely with Cruella and her henchmen in hot pursuit. Can they get home safe and start a new family of 101 dalmatians?

DVD Features

The Platinum Edition DVD is digitally restored with enhanced picture and sound. Older fans might enjoy a reenactment of the personal correspondence between Walt Disney and the author of 101 Dalmatians, Dodie Smith. You’ll also find a featurette about drawing Cruella De Vil, some deleted songs, two Pop-up trivia modes, and music videos including Selena Gomez performing a rocking version of the Cruella De Vil song. The DVD also features a Virtual Dalmatian game where you can adopt a pup who needs food, sleep, and loves to play, just like a real dog!

Bottom Line

101 Dalmatians is a classic, and this DVD is definitely one to add to your collection. The movie looks and sounds fantastic, and the extras and features are all pretty entertaining or, at least, educational, no matter how old you are. The Virtual Dalmatian game is really cute and will keep you occupied for hours while taking care of your new pet. The best part is that you don’t even have to clean up after it! If you already own the other Disney Platinum Edition animated classics, you 'll love this one too!

If I had to make simple choice, I'd prefer to live in It's Kind of a Funny Story simply for the people who were held in it. Despite the location setting for the story, I feel as if I could very easily fall for the characters all over again, especially in an even more personal matter. But, of course, if I was  going with a straight up fantasy like everyone seems to be, I'd most likely go with a world like Dorthy Must Die series or Alice in Wonderland. Both being these magical worlds filled with quirky creatures and people, so how could you get bored? Oh, and of course let us not forget the plenty of harrowing fight scenes for freedom from the evil queens and her many brainless followers.

I would live in The Outsiders because it's a classic book. I would love to go on adventures with the gang and read books and watch movies with Ponyboy. (Because I too always believed I was the only one who enjoyed them.) I would love to open up to Johnny because he is such a kind hearted soul.
