Jasper 101 Dalmatians Costume

The Badun Brothers appear as villains in Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom. On Main Street, U.S.A., Jasper and Horace are forced to work for Cruella in an attempt to find the Crystal of the Magic Kingdom as she threatened to murder them if they refuse to follow her demands. Upon learning that Pongo has contacted the local dogs to help guard the crystal, she sends Jasper and Horace to capture and eliminate them. Jasper creates several traps to capture them and Horace takes them to Cruella’s lair. When the park guests arrive, they defeat Jasper by trapping him in one of the dog traps. They then head to the lair, where Cruella orders Horace to eliminate the captured dogs. Before he can, the guests arrive and unleash them. They then attack Horace, giving the guests a chance to go after Cruella.

When the Dalmatians are discovered to be hiding in a moving van heading for London, they pursue it in their truck. Jasper makes a plan to ram the van into a ravine, but Horace panics and accidentally pulls out the truck’s steering wheel, making the truck slide down the mountain out of control. The truck ends up individually crashing into Cruella’s car, dislodging it from where she had jammed it under the back of the moving van and sending both vehicles over the edge as they fall apart into pieces. Although Cruella, Horace, and Jasper are unharmed, Cruella suffers a mental breakdown, angrily cursing their incompetence while they sit on the wreckage sulking as the van escapes. An annoyed Jasper simply tells Cruella to shut up, finally gaining the courage to stand up for themselves as Cruella collapses on a piece of wreckage and sobs over the loss of her dream coat.
Jasper and Horace Badun are the secondary antagonists of Disney’s 1961 animated feature film One Hundred and One Dalmatians. They are a pair of lowly crooks that were hired to serve as Cruella De Vil’s henchmen. The short-tempered and loud-mouthed Jasper acts as the brains and the de facto leader of the two, while the gluttonous Horace acts as the muscle.Jasper and Horace appear in this 2021 live-action film as the deuteragonists, with Jasper being played by Joel Fry while Horace is played by Paul Walter Hauser. Unlike their animated appearances, they have a good friendship and are close to Cruella. Jasper is the taller, more intellectual of the pair, while Horace is better at disguises and always believes there’s an angle to play. They are petty thieves who meet a young girl named Estella at Regent’s Park, where they are chased by police back to their sanctuary. The boys introduced themselves and their one-eyed dog Wink to Estella. She revealed that her mother had died, which Jasper sympathized with and urged Horace to remember that feeling. She found a safe place with the boys but knew she had to conform to hide her identity in case the police searched for her. As adults, the trio made a life for themselves as successful petty criminals who frequently ran from the police. Jasper knew that Estella secretly longed for a career as a fashion designer at Baroness Von Hellman’s prestigious couture company the House of Baroness. On her birthday, Jasper and Horace surprised her with a cake, albeit it was stolen, and a job acceptance letter to one of the Baroness’ many stores. Jasper had pulled a few strings to get her accepted, strings that included breaking in and dropping her resume on the pile. The men supported Estella in her endeavors, and when she realized that Baroness Von Hellman had her mother’s necklace, she recruited the men to help her steal it back. Horace went into the gala disguised a pest control employee, the intellectual Jasper stayed in a van to manipulate cameras, and Estella donned her alter-ego Cruella to distract the Baroness.

Jasper and Horace then notice the puppies have escaped through the hole in the wall and begin a search of the house. Eventually, after a disorganized chase around the house, they are able to corner the puppies in a room. Before they can kill them, Pongo and Perdita arrive, crashing through one of the front windows, and attack Jasper and Horace. While the puppies use the cover of the fight to escape, Horace is tripped into the fireplace by Perdita and Jasper gets his pants pulled down by Pongo. Both are buried underneath the ceiling when it collapses due to Horace running into Jasper and making them crash into it. Horace: In the original 1961 film, Horace is short, fat, and also balding with gray hair surrounding his scalp. His attire consists of a brown sport coat, a light green turtleneck sweater, brown cap, dark green trousers, and black shoes with brownish-green socks. Later on in the film, his winter clothing consists of a brown buttoned coat with sleeves that stop just before the wrists, black snow boots, and light green mittens. Horace (voiced by Frederick Worlock) is the shorter and fatter of the duo, with a love for food (especially sandwiches and cakes). He is supposedly less intelligent than Jasper, but a number of occasions imply otherwise. Horace seems to have a higher moral code. He often voices his dislike for criminal activity by stating, “I don’t like it, Jasper!” and is visibly anxious and hesitant when committing a crime.They are hired to dognap Pongo and Perdita’s 15 Dalmatian Puppies to be used in making Cruella’s fur coat. Neither one seems to be very intelligent, but Horace appears to have more insight and is often shown to correctly guess what the Dalmatians’ plans are. However, Jasper quickly rejects these ideas in favor of his own believing that dogs could not possibly be that intelligent, despite already showing they indeed are. Though Jasper and Horace carry out Cruella’s deeds, they only do it for money and not for enjoyment. Horace fears her wrath, but Jasper shows no respect for Cruella due to often being annoyed with her bossiness. This makes Cruella despise Jasper more than Horace.At Hell Hall, they laze about watching and eating, along with the stolen puppies and 84 bought puppies. This is where their potential kindness comes into play as they allow them to watch television with them, although they rudely force Lucky to move so they can see What’s My Crime?. Eventually, an incensed Cruella arrives and tells Jasper and Horace that she “wants the job done tonight” due the growing number of active policemen. Though Jasper notes that the puppies were not big enough for the amount of coats Cruella apparently desires, she decides to settle for what they can get. When Jasper and Horace ask Cruella to have pity and at least let them finish watching What’s My Crime?, she angrily throws the liquor Jasper was drinking into the fireplace, causing a small explosion that made Cruella look even more sinister, then angrily slaps both of them across the face and, before leaving, warns them that if the job wasn’t done by the time she returned first thing in the morning, she would report them to the police. While they are watching What’s My Crime?, the puppies are rescued by Sergeant Tibbs. After the show ends, Jasper and Horace take up some improvised weapons; Jasper improvises a fireplace poker and Horace takes an old chair leg. They disagree over whether or not Jasper skins and Horace kills them or vice-versa, but they stop their arguing when they overhear a sound from the door, that being Tibbs finally managing to get Rolly through the hole in the drywall next to the door, but not without Rolly yelping in the process, alerting the Baduns.Jasper and Horace is a featured article, which means it has been identified as one of the best articles produced by the Disney Wiki community. If you see a way this page can be updated or improved without compromising previous work, please feel free to contribute.

After escaping the debris, they track the Dalmatians to a farm building through their footprints. After being attacked by the Colonel, then by the Captain and Tibbs, they realize the dogs have already left the building. They try to head off the dogs, but the Dalmatians elude them by traveling along a frozen creek that they won’t leave any tracks on.
Jasper and Horace bring the puppies to Cruella, who presents them to Lars. However, when Lars refuses to kill the puppies, Cruella has him bound and gagged and decides to finally get her spotted fur coat. After she, Jasper, Horace, and Lil’ Lightning are thrown into a river by Patch and Thunderbolt, they are arrested. Having finally had enough of Cruella, Jasper and Horace are turned loose after they confessed to Nanny that she told them to get the puppies and is behind the dognapping. With this, Cruella, having now cracked and gone completely insane, is taken away to a prison asylum. After they are both pardoned, they go straight and obtain their own line of sundresses as revealed in a newspaper during the end credits.

In 101 Dalmatians: The Series, the Badun Brothers are the “H. and J. Concepts” company and are employed by Cruella to do her dirty work. This involves delivering ransom notes and going through Anita’s trash. Unlike the films, they have American accents and dressed differently than they did before (due to the series being set in the United States).
The Badun Brothers are both some of the villains imprisoned on the Isle of the Lost. Jasper now has a son named Jason (or Jace) and Horace has a son named Harold (or Harry) who are accomplices of Cruella’s son, Carlos.

Though they helped Estella, who now went by Cruella, to outshine the Baroness and throw pop-up fashion shows, they grew tired of her cruel attitude and rude remarks. The Baroness learned that Estella was Cruella and tied-up Horace and Jasper at their home. She then tried to murder Cruella to frame Jasper and Horace for her death. The men were arrested and held in prison, where Jasper tried to help Horace mourn the death of Estella, as opposed to Cruella. They were valiantly rescued by Cruella, Buddy, and Wink, as she had survived thanks to the Baroness’ valet. She revealed to them that she was the Baroness’ biological daughter, and that the Baroness had murdered her adoptive mother Catherine. She apologized for her actions as Cruella and asked them, as her family, to help her. Unable to say no to the “family card” as Jasper put it, the men helped Cruella pull off one final con. Horace also stole her a car that inspired her to take the surname “De Vil”, while Jasper helped her to remain Estella.
The Badun brothers return in the sequel. In this film, Jasper and Horace are first seen in jail. Jasper says it is unfair that he and Horace have to spend time in jail while Cruella is let off with probation and a restraining order and Horace agrees with him. Cruella pays their bail money so they can round up the puppies for Lars to use as canvases. As part of Cruella’s plan to kidnap the puppies, Jasper reluctantly dresses up as a woman so he and Horace can trick a Kanine Krunchies deliveryman and steal his truck. Upon reaching the Cherry Tree Farm where the puppies now live, Jasper and Horace lure them into the truck using the dog food the vehicle is carrying. Nanny then arrives on the scene and threatens to hit the duo with her frying pan if they do not release the puppies. Jasper tries to sweet-talk her, but she hits him with the pan and proceeds to chase Horace. After a fiasco in a pigsty, Jasper and Horace overpower Nanny by tying her up and trapping her in a well.

The Badun Brothers are a pair of crooks-for-hire. They are fairly amoral, simply wishing to make money however they can, even if they have to align themselves with shady characters to do so.They make a cameo appearance in the House of Mouse episode “Suddenly Hades”, during the Hades Heating advertisement at the end of the show. They also appeared in the film Mickey’s House of Villains as guests of the club and are seen dancing in a congo line when the villains takeover the club.

Did Cruella wear a wig?
Sadly, no, none of it was her real hair. Very few actors would die their hair two different colors in that drastic of a fashion. But then again, Estella’s red hair wasn’t Emma Stone’s natural hair either. According to Nadia Stacey, who headed up hair and makeup on “Cruella,” it was all wig work.
In the sequel, they are almost arrested when they decide to stand up for themselves by admitting Cruella made them carry out their deeds. They get pardoned for their part in kidnapping the puppies and open up a clothes corporation.

During the resort’s annual Halloween event, both Badun Brothers are featured among the villain and henchmen decorative banners seen in Tokyo Disneyland.
Jasper (voiced by J. Pat O’Malley) is the de facto leader of the duo and “brains” of the outfit. He is tall, skinny, and enjoys drinking alcohol. His favorite activities are playing darts and watching What’s My Crime? with Horace. According to 101 Dalmatians II: Patch’s London Adventure, Jasper is not well-liked by their parents and never has been. Jasper drives a beater truck with a shoddy engine that spits and sputters, and rattles.A few days later, Jasper and Horace meet up with Cruella on the road. She asks them if they’ve found any sign of the puppies and is given a negative response from Jasper. Horace then says they’re freezing and are ready to give up the search. However, Cruella refuses to let them off the hook and furiously forces them to continue, declaring they will find the puppies if it takes until the next Christmas; she also tells them to be careful with their driving if they do not want to be caught and ticketed by the police (Cruella herself, ironically, is an extremely fast and reckless driver). She is still bent on getting her dream coat one way or another. She eventually finds the dalmatians’ footprints leading to a nearby village called Dinsford. There, she, Jasper, and Horace search for the puppies. Horace points out some “Labrador puppies”, suggesting the possibility that the dogs disguised themselves. Annoyed, Jasper sarcastically blows off the idea and furiously bashes Horace on the head, angrily calling him an idiot.

In the live-action remake, the Badun brothers were portrayed by Hugh Laurie and Mark Williams. They were inspired from Harry Lyme and Marv Merchants from the first two films of the Home Alone franchise (which were incidentally written and produced by John Hughes). Here they are both skinny (though Jasper is still thinner than Horace) and are not implied to be related. They are still very similar to their animated counterparts, though they are depicted as much more ruthless characters, and never reform. Jasper is also shown to be a little bit smarter. They actually seem to enjoy animal cruelty (or at least, Jasper does), even deciding to take over taxidermist Mr. Skinner’s job of killing and skinning the puppies (in this version, their job initially is just to kidnap them). They also appear to be more polite to their boss, never once bad-mouthing Cruella even though she doesn’t respect them. At the end, tired of all the misfortunes they had endured after kidnapping the puppies and accidentally letting them escape, they allow themselves to be arrested along with Mr. Skinner (who was beaten by Kipper) by the local police and end up being sprayed by a skunk that Cruella unknowingly brought with her, making them all scream in terror, while Horace covers his nose. Jasper bangs his head on the roof of the paddy wagon whilst trying to get away from the smell and Horace bangs on the door to try to alert the police about the skunk, but the police take no notice.

The men helped Artie make wigs for gala guests to wear that paid homage to Cruella’s hairstyle, trapped the Baroness’ guards in the library, and guided the guests outside where they all witnessed the Baroness murder Estella. However, Estella secretly survived with the use of a skirt turned into a parachute, which landed her near a boat steered by Horace. The trio, alongside Wink and Buddy, buried “Estella”. Horace was emotional at the funeral while Jasper reminded him that the funeral was fake, since she was alive as Cruella De Vil. With the Baroness’ arrest, Cruella inherited the Hellman estate and fortune. The trio of former petty thieves moved into the estate, now called Hell Hall, where Cruella had a few ideas of what to do next.
Jasper: In the original 1961 film, Jasper is tall, lanky, and balding with some grey hair surrounding the top of his scalp. His attire consists of a brown sport coat, brown turtleneck sweater, brown trousers, brown cap, and black shoes with brown socks. Later on in the film, his winter clothing consists of a brown buttoned coat with sleeves that stop just before the wrists, black snow boots, and brown mittens.

In the former Walt Disney Studios Park parade, Disney Cinema Parade, both Badun Brothers were seen during the Dalmatians’ unit with a large sack, ready to kidnap the puppies. They seem to be based on their “live-action” occupation.
In 101 Dalmatians, the Badun brothers sneak into Roger and Anita’s house by passing themselves as repairmen from the Electric Company (Kanine Krunchies deliverymen in the sequel and musical version), though Horace incorrectly states they’re from the gas company before quickly correcting himself upon Jasper’s prodding. Nanny refuses to let them in since Roger and Anita are gone, but they force their way in. Jasper toys with Nanny up in the attic while Horace steals the puppies. Making their hasty escape, Jasper and Horace transport the puppies to Cruella’s former home Hell Hall. Soon after, the dognapping is covered by the newspapers, making them try to back out. They call Cruella and ask for their payment, but she refuses to pay anything until the ‘job’ is done before angrily hanging up on them when she mistakes Jasper furiously telling Horace to be quiet to be directed at her.Temperament-wise, Jasper is the more aggressive of the two. He can maintain a decent poker face for a period of time, but is quick to physical abuse and snappy remarks when things annoy him. He is also bold enough to occasionally challenge Cruella, though it typically ends in punishment for himself and Horace.

“She absolutely just let me go with it, and just let me come to her with it and trust me to kind of come up with it, so yeah, it was amazing,” Stacey said. “I guess that’s why it gave me confidence in the beginning because I knew that I had been given that trust from Cruella!”There is arguably no Disney villain with a more iconic look than Cruella de Vil. And obviously, it all comes back to her infamous two-tone hairstyle — so how exactly did they make that work, and look real, on Emma Stone in “Cruella”?

And because it does two different things, Stacey really just had to play around with looks and see what would work. The good news is, Emma Stone had full confidence in her. The two worked together previously on “The Favourite,” and Stone is the one who called Stacey to let her know she’d gotten the job. And having that familiarity and confidence made all the difference.
Sadly, no, none of it was her real hair. Very few actors would die their hair two different colors in that drastic of a fashion. But then again, Estella’s red hair wasn’t Emma Stone’s natural hair either. According to Nadia Stacey, who headed up hair and makeup on “Cruella,” it was all wig work. And that presented its own challenges.“From a practical sense, it was actually pretty hard because to get wigs made, black and white wigs made, the white hair is really hard to come by,” Stacey told TheWrap. “It’s really hard to get, so I only actually had two black and white wigs for her, and then I kept kind of changing and swapping them out with all the different styles, and added things to them, and changing them. Yeah, like a do-it-yourself kit, Cruella hair.”“When you dress hair, as a hairstylist, there’s a symmetry to it. And when you’re dressing a certain style, you can see the overall picture of the style,” Stacey noted. “But the black and white hair kind of throws off your eye. It’s strange. So getting some of those styles right — and the black hair reacts different to the white hair when you’re styling it as well. It does two completely different things.” Dalmatians are associated with firefighting, particularly in the United States. In the days of horse-drawn fire engines, dogs would guard the horses, who could easily become uncomfortable at the scene of a fire. Dalmatians were a popular breed for this job, due to their natural affinity to horses and history of being used as carriage dogs. This role became unnecessary once horse-drawn fire engines were replaced with steam- and diesel-powered ones. Due to its history, the Dalmatian often serves as a mascot for the fire service, and is still chosen by many firefighters as a pet. Low uric acid (LUA) Dalmatians typically have smaller spots, which do not have as strong a pigment as standard Dalmatians. LUA breeders are trying to deal with this aspect, but it still remains possible to be able to pick a LUA out in a line up.

Dalmatians are perhaps best known for working for firefighters for their role as firefighting apparatus escorts and firehouse mascots. Since Dalmatians and horses are very compatible, the dogs were easily trained to run in front of the carriages to help clear a path and quickly guide the horses and firefighters to the fires.The Dalmatian Heritage Project began in 2005. The goal of the project is to preserve and improve the Dalmatian breed by breeding parent dogs with the following traits:

It has been proved that it is the inheritance of the extreme piebald gene that causes blue eyes. It is therefore frowned upon to breed from blue-eyed Dalmatians even if they are fully hearing. Blue-eyed Dalmatians are not typically shown in the UK.
Dalmatians are often considered to make good watchdogs, and they may have been useful to fire brigades as guard dogs to protect a firehouse and its equipment. Fire engines used to be drawn by fast and powerful horses, a tempting target for thieves, so Dalmatians were kept in the firehouse as deterrence to theft.The Dalmatian is a muscular dog with excellent endurance and stamina. When fully grown, according to the American Kennel Club (AKC) breed standard, it stands from 19 to 23 inches (48 to 58 cm) tall.Another coloration pattern is a larger solid patch of color, which appears anywhere on the body, but most often on the head, ears, or tail. Patches are visible at birth and are not a group of connected spots; they are identifiable by the smooth edge of the patch, and they have no interlacing white hairs in them. Pure white individuals without spots also occur occasionally.

At the annual general meeting of the DCA in May 2006, the backcross issue was discussed again by club members. In June of the same year, DCA members were presented with an opportunity to vote on whether to reopen the discussion of the Dalmatian Backcross Project. The results of this ballot were nearly 2:1 in favor of re-examining support of the project by the DCA. This has begun with the publication of articles presenting more information both in support of and questioning the need for this project. In July 2011, the AKC agreed to allow registration of backcrossed Dalmatians.During the Regency period, the Dalmatian became a status symbol and those with decorative spotting were highly prized. The breed was also used to guard the stables at night.

There are still a lot of people who are against the project, due to the fact that they are not pure Dalmatians. Until you are unable to distinguish between a LUA and a HUA this is likely to remain the case. The differences between the two is very obvious to the naked eye, to the extent you can tell instantly. LUA Dalmatians have smaller spotting and very weak pigment. They are also softer to the touch and move higher on their toes like a pointer does. Many Dalmatian exhibitors feel there should have been a separate breed set up for them, so they aren’t competing against true Dalmatians.
Dalmatian puppies are born with plain white coats and their first spots usually appear within 10 days; however, spots may be visible on their skin from birth. They continue to develop until the dog is around 18 months old. Spots usually range in size from 2 to 6 cm (1.25 to 2.5 in), and are most commonly black or liver (brown) on a white background. Liver is the recessive colour in dalmatians, meaning that both parents have to carry the liver gene to produce this colour of pups. If both parents are liver, then all puppies will be liver-spotted. A dog who is dominate black is defined as being BB, a dog who is black spotted but carries liver is Bb and a liver dog is bb. Black spotted dogs always have black noses, and liver spotted dogs always have brown noses.In 2010, the UK Kennel Club registered a backcrossed Dalmatian called Ch. Fiacre’s First and Foremost. Several restrictions were imposed on the dog. Although the dog is at least 13 generations removed from the original Pointer cross, its F1 to F3 progeny will be marked on registration certificates with asterisks (which “indicate impure or unverified breeding”,) no progeny will be eligible to be exported as pedigrees for the next five years, and all have to be health tested. UK Dalmatian breed clubs have objected to the decision by the Kennel Club. . The roles of this breed are as varied as their reputed ancestors. They were used as hunting dogs, dogs of war, guarding the borders of Dalmatia. To this day, the breed retains a high guarding instinct; although friendly and loyal to those the dog knows and trusts, it is often aloof with strangers and unknown dogs. Dalmatians have a strong hunting instinct and are an excellent exterminator of rats and vermin. In sporting, they have been used as bird dogs, trail hounds, retrievers, or in packs for wild boar or stag hunting. Their dramatic markings and intelligence have made them successful circus dogs throughout the years. A genetic predisposition for deafness is a serious health problem for Dalmatians; American Dalmatians exhibit a prevalence for bilateral congenital sensoneural deafness of 8% (for which there is no possible treatment), compared with 5.3% for the UK population. Deafness was not recognized by early breeders, so the breed was thought to be unintelligent. Many breeders, when hearing testing started to become the norm, were amazed to discover that they had unilateral hearing dogs. Even after recognizing the problem as a genetic fault, breeders did not understand the dogs’ nature, and deafness in Dalmatians continues to be a frequent problem.

The breed had been developed and cultivated chiefly in England. The first unofficial standard for the breed was introduced by Englishman Vero Shaw in 1882. In 1890 with the formation of the first Dalmatian Club in England, the standard became official. When the dog with the distinctive markings was first shown in England in 1862, it was said to have been used as a guard dog and companion to the nomads of Dalmatia. The breed’s unique coat became popular and widely distributed over the continent of Europe beginning in 1920. Its unusual markings were often mentioned by the old writers on cynology.
Typically, only dogs with bilateral hearing are bred, although those with unilateral hearing, and even dogs with bilateral deafness, make fine pets with appropriate training. The main, and most noticeable, difference in a dog with uni hearing is that they do not have directional hearing; though the dog will be able to hear someone, they will not be able to hear the direction they are in. The Dalmatian Club of America’s position on deaf pups is that they should not be used for breeding, and that humane euthanasia may be considered as an “alternative to placement”. The British Dalmatian Club recommends only purchasing pups who are BAER-tested, and requests all members to provide BAER testing results of their puppies so that the true deafness statistics can be looked at.All puppies in the Heritage Project are descendants of Dr. Robert Schaible’s parent line. Today, “Dr. Schaible’s line produces the only Dalmatians in the world today that are free of a metabolic defect that can lead to urinary tract problems.”

Researchers now know deafness in albino and piebald animals is caused by the absence of mature melanocytes in the inner ear. This may affect one or both ears. The condition is also common in other canine breeds that share a genetic propensity for light pigmentation. This includes, but is not limited to Bull Terriers, Dogo Argentinos, Poodles, Boxers, Border Collies and Great Danes.
The Dalmatian is also associated, particularly in the United States, with Budweiser beer and the Busch Gardens theme parks, since the Anheuser-Busch company’s iconic beer wagon, drawn by a team of Clydesdale horses, is always accompanied by a Dalmatian. The company maintains several teams at various locations, which tour extensively. Dalmatians were historically used by brewers to guard the wagon while the driver was making deliveries.The Dalmatian breed experienced a massive surge in popularity as a result of the 1956 novel The Hundred and One Dalmatians written by British author Dodie Smith, and later due to the two Walt Disney films based on the book. The Disney animated film, released in 1961, later spawned a 1996 live-action remake, 101 Dalmatians. In the years following the release of the sequel 102 Dalmatians in 2000, the breed suffered greatly at the hands of irresponsible breeders and inexperienced owners. Many well-meaning enthusiasts purchased Dalmatians—often for their children—without educating themselves on the breed and the responsibilities that come with owning such a high-energy dog breed. Dalmatians were abandoned in large numbers by their original owners and left with animal shelters. As a result, Dalmatian rescue organizations sprang up to care for the unwanted dogs and find them new homes. AKC registrations of Dalmatians decreased 90% during the 2000–2010 period. The Dalmatian coat is usually short, fine, and dense; however, smooth-coated Dalmatians occasionally produce long-coated offspring. Long-coated Dalmatians are not acceptable in the breed standard, but these individuals experience much less shedding than their smooth-coated counterparts, which shed considerably year-round. The standard variety’s short, stiff hairs often weave into carpet, clothing, upholstery, and nearly any other kind of fabric and can be difficult to remove. Weekly grooming with a hound mitt or currycomb can lessen the amount of hair Dalmatians shed, although nothing can completely prevent shedding. Due to the minimal amount of oil in their coats, Dalmatians lack a dog odor and stay fairly clean relative to many other dog breeds. Other colors that occur occasionally include blue (a blue-greyish colour), brindle, mosaic, orange or lemon (dark to pale yellow), or tricolored (with black, brown and orange or lemon spots). Orange and lemon occur the most frequently, especially in America, and are dilutes of the standard colours. They are defined as orange or lemon depending on their nose colour.

How do you make Dalmatian ears with socks?
Invite your child to paint spots all over the clothing in a Dalmatian-like fashion. After the paint dries, attach two of the tube socks to the headband. Cut slits at the opening of the sock to slip the headband through. These will be your child’s dog ears!
Dalmatians, like humans, can suffer from hyperuricemia. Dalmatians’ livers have trouble breaking down uric acid, which can build up in the blood serum (hyperuricemia) causing gout. Uric acid can also be excreted in high concentration into the urine, causing kidney stones and bladder stones. These conditions are most likely to occur in middle-aged males. Males over ten are prone to kidney stones and should have their calcium intake reduced or be given preventive medication. To reduce the risk of gout and stones, owners should carefully limit the intake of purines by avoiding giving their dogs food containing organ meats, animal byproducts, or other high-purine ingredients. Hyperuricemia in Dalmatians responds to treatment with orgotein, the veterinary formulation of the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase.Even though there is no evidence nor statistically relevant data to suggest that hip dysplasia is another disease that affects Dalmatians, some blogs say that it affects nearly 5% of purebred Dalmatians, causing those to experience limping, fatigue, moderate to severe pain, and trouble standing up. Even though this data is not available, it is believed that Dalmatians who eventually develop hip dysplasia are born with normal hips, but the soft tissues surrounding the joint grow abnormally due to their genetic makeup. The disease may affect both hips or the right or left hip, leading afflicted dogs to walk or run with an altered gait. The most cited scientific report about canine hip dysplasia omits Dalmatians among the breeds usually affected by that disease.

Hyperuricemia in Dalmatians (as in all breeds) is inherited, but unlike other breeds, the normal gene for a uric acid transporter that allows for uric acid to enter liver cells and be subsequently broken down is not present in the breed’s gene pool. Therefore, there is no possibility of eliminating hyperuricemia among pure-bred Dalmatians. The only possible solution to this problem must then be crossing Dalmatians with other breeds to reintroduce the normal uric acid transporter gene. This led to the foundation of the Dalmatian-Pointer Backcross Project, which aims to reintroduce the normal uric acid transporter gene into the Dalmatian breed. The backcross used a single English Pointer; subsequent breedings have all been to purebred Dalmatians. This project was started in 1973 by Dr. Robert Schaible. The first cross (F1) hybrids did not resemble Dalmatians very closely. The F1s were then crossed back to purebreds. This breeding produced puppies of closer resemblance to the pure Dalmatian. By the fifth generation in 1981, they resembled purebreds so much, Dr. Schaible convinced the AKC to allow two of the hybrids to be registered as purebreds. Then AKC President William F. Stifel stated, “If there is a logical, scientific way to correct genetic health problems associated with certain breed traits and still preserve the integrity of the breed standard, it is incumbent upon the American Kennel Club to lead the way.” The Dalmatian Club of America’s (DCA) board of directors supported this decision; however, it quickly became highly controversial among the club members. A vote by DCA members opposed the registration of the hybrids, causing the AKC to ban registration to any of the dog’s offspring.The first known written reference to a Dalmatian dog is from 1375, when Peter, Bishop of Đakovo, mentions a hunting dog principally found in Dalmatia, with short white hair and black round spots on various parts of the body, naming the breed Canis Dalmaticus. The earliest illustrations of the breed have been found in Croatia: an altar painting in Veli Lošinj dating to 1600–1630, and a fresco in Zaostrog. The first definitive documented descriptions of the Dalmatian (Croatian: Dalmatinski pas, Dalmatiner, Dalmatinac) trace back to the early 18th century and the archives of the Archdiocese of Đakovo, where the dog was mentioned and described as Canis Dalmaticus in the church chronicles from 1719 by Bishop Petar Bakić and then again by church chronicles of Andreas Keczkeméty in 1739. In 1771, Thomas Pennant described the breed in his book Synopsis of Quadrupeds, writing that the origin of the breed is from Dalmatia; he referred to it as Dalmatian. The book by Thomas Bewick, A General History of Quadrupeds, published in 1790 refers to the breed as Dalmatian or Coach Dog. One famous Dalmatian in popular culture is Louie or “Lou Dog”, the mascot of rock band Sublime. Adopted by singer Bradley Nowell in 1990 as a puppy, Lou Dog would become a central part of Sublime’s image, often wandering the stage while the band was playing as well as appearing in the band’s music videos. In addition, Nowell would frequently reference Louie in song lyrics, one example being in the band’s most popular song “What I Got” (“…livin’ with Louie Dog’s the only way to stay sane”.) The Dalmatian is a breed of dog, which has a white coat marked with black or brown-coloured spots. Originating as a hunting dog, it was also used as a carriage dog in its early days. The origins of this breed can be traced back to present-day Croatia and its historical region of Dalmatia. It is thought that early ancestors of the breed were certain breeds of pointers and a spotted Great Dane. Today, it is a popular pet and many dog enthusiasts enter Dalmatians into kennel club competitions.

Like other breeds, Dalmatians display a propensity towards certain health problems specific to their breed, such as deafness, allergies, and urinary stones. Reputable breeders have their puppies’ BAER (brainstem auditory evoked response) tested to ensure the status of the hearing on their pups. The Dalmatian Club of America lists the average lifespan of a Dalmatian at between 11 and 13 years, although some can live as long as 15 to 16 years. Breed health surveys in the US and the UK show an average lifespan of 9.9 and 11.55 years, respectively. In their late teens, both males and females may suffer bone spurs and arthritic conditions. Autoimmune thyroiditis may be a relatively common condition for the breed, affecting 11.6% of dogs.

Estella IS Cruella in her “daytime look.” She had a lot of fun in helping pick and choose the items Estella would wear and we did a bit of the red hair chalk (YES it also washed out easily!) on some of her front pieces of hair to help tie in the Estella costume. Again, we mostly shopped her closet as well as Goodwill!I feel like my overall Cruella De Vil costume was cute without being overboard! I was comfortable (as every mom knows is crucial when it comes to costumes and parenting) and didn’t feel like I was “showy” either. This year the girls were ADAMANT about who they wanted to be. Little girl Cruella. And Estella Cruella. Neither of them wanted to be ACTUAL Cruella De Vil. I happened to meet another mom dressed as Cruella at Disney for the Boo Bash (our family costumes all make fantastic Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party or Disney’s After Hours Boo Bash costume ideas too!) and loved how she did the look in a very low-key way. I actually asked if she minded me taking a picture of her and she showed me on Amazon the different things she bought to put the look together.

You can’t do a Cruella theme and NOT have a Cruella De Vil Costume represented right? I also agreed with their point that it made the most sense for me to be Cruella. Tess is my mini-me and for the characters we’d be playing she was supposed to be the little girl version. So that made sense. And Britt is also my mini me and she’s supposed to be the SAME person that I am just in a different outfit so that made sense too.
I also purchased this hair chalk set to add a bit of color to her hair. My girls have lighter natural hair and I am VERY nervous about any sort of hair color so the chalk was great as it added a bit of color without ruining their hair and washed out easily!

What coat type is a Dalmatian?
Dalmatian (dog)TraitsHeightDogs58–61 cm (23–24 in)Coatsmooth, short
I loved this adorable Dalmatian costume so I bought it and had no regrets! It was perfect and I loved the little collar detail too! He wore his black crocs and was super comfortable and had zero complaints about his costume. There are tons of dalmatians costumes out there but I really did a large search for one that had the cute collar as well as the attached ears and tail.

Yall. When I got home and showed Zach all of the pieces I picked up at Goodwill and showed him the shirt I was so proud of…he said HE HAD DONATED IT. I literally bought BACK a shirt that had already been HIS. Hilarious.
Every year our family loves to create a DIY family Halloween costume with a theme! This year it was EASY to decide the family costume theme – Tess looks SO MUCH like little girl Cruella aka Estella that we had to do a Cruella family costume this year! As a long-time Disney fan, I love that our costumes weren’t only a take on the new Cruella movie, but also incorporated a 101 Dalmatians family costume theme too! Every year we do a family themed costume and every year I make sure I’m never “that mom.” It’s a personal pet peeve of mine when the mom is the main character or the attention seeking costume and the kids are a side character. It’s just a “thing” for me! I prefer always being the one to put together the costumes and to be a supporting role not the main character in the theme. This was one piece of our Cruella family costume idea that I did just buy and didn’t bother to make or do any sort of diy project for. I’ve done enough family costumes over the years to know that sometimes making it yourself can cost more AND take up way more time than it’s worth.

When we had the idea for a Cruella family halloween costume we knew right away that Zach had to be Jasper. He’s always whatever movie character is the tallest 😉
You can’t have a 101 Dalmatians family costume without Horace and Jasper and they were both even more major characters in the Cruella movie. I am always so impressed with Kye. Being on the verge of teenage hood he still gets super into and excited about our family theme costumes each year.I love a family-themed costume but I especially love putting together the costumes in a “diy” fashion. I think that homemade Halloween costumes are THE BEST! Not only do homemade costumes save money without breaking your bank account but they really allow you to have your own style and personal touch and be creative with the end result!

Hey I’m Emily! I’m obsessed with all things Disney and can’t resist a good deal. I am a firm believer in always being open and transparent (total “over-sharer” right here!). Parenting is my personal passion and I strive to raise my children up in the Lord and for them to look back on their childhoods’ with fond, fun memories. I truly believe that life is about the journey and I want to savor every second of it!Zach was also able to wear things he already owned for his Jasper costume. Funny side story but when I was at Goodwill on the hunt for clothing pieces for our costumes I saw this orange dress shirt that would be PERFECT for Jasper. AND it was Zach’s size. AND it was from Express which are actually his favorite brand of dress shirts. I figured for $4 he could rock it for the costume AND would probably even wear it again for work or church.

We knew chid Estella was handled but we struggled a bit with deciding who Britt and I should dress like for our Cruella family costumes. Britt really loves to be a bit edgy in her Halloween costumes (just look back through the years at her looks!) and wanted to dress up like Estella from the Cruella film.
All of the material on this blog is copy written by the blog author. Ideas, photographs and concepts cannot be reproduced without the written consent of the blog author. Of course a must-have for any 101 Dalmatians family costume theme is a Dalmatian puppy! We knew Spear would LOVE to be dressed up as a Dalmatian. Not only because being a puppy is fun and the costume is comfortable but especially because the “friend” that Spear sleeps with every night is a Dalmatian. He loves his “Doggie” so getting to dress up as his doggie was an easy costume for him! The whole family costume was so perfect too for how our LIFE is right now. We are ALL literally ALWAYS chasing Spear. So his running off and us having to grab him? Just part of our roles and staying in character 😉He was awesome as Horace! He stayed in character more than anyone else in our family and used a British accent all evening. He practiced facial expressions and had it DOWN! On a whim Tess asked our hairdresser to cut her hair “like little girl Cruella” and I was SHOCKED by how adorable the shorter hair is on her but especially how much she really does look like Estella! The similarities are crazy and Tess was SO excited to dress up like her. So much so that this outfit was actually clothing she was wearing on a regular basis around the house. The girl loves to collect random clothing items, at this point she could probably open her own store with all of her looks 😉 We had such a fun time planning our Cruella family costume theme this year. We take our family costumes pretty seriously and it’s so fun to me how every single one of us get INTO our roles. It really makes it even more fun when everyone in our group has such a great time with it and is a good sport about it.That classic movie was based on an English novel of the same name, by Dodie Smith, and like most movies based on books, it took some liberties. The most notable is that in the book Pongo’s mate is named Missus. There is a dog character called Perdita in the book, but she is peripheral to the story. The 1996 live-action movie took even more liberties. Instead of being a songwriter, Roger is now a video game designer. And instead of being Anita’s old classmate from school, Cruella De Vil is Anita’s boss at a fashion design studio.

Are Jasper and Horace brothers?
Siblings. Jasper and Horace Badun are the secondary antagonists of Disney’s 1961 animated feature film One Hundred and One Dalmatians. They are a pair of lowly crooks that were hired to serve as Cruella De Vil’s henchmen.
Did you know that One Hundred and One Dalmatians was the first Disney animated movie that was set in the “present-day” of the year it was made? In this case, 1961. And that each Dalmatian puppy had 32 spots, Pongo had 72, and Perdita had 68?

Even if your evening plans are to steal a bunch of Dalmatians to make into a coat, this tutorial will ensure you look amazing doing it! Start with a white base and then apply a green eye shadow to both eyelids keeping the shape more round to keep that cartoon appearance. Add a darker green eye shadow around the edges to create a contour. Then apply black eyeliner, mascara, and blush. Darken the eyebrows and extend them out for a more dramatic cartoon look. Finally add a bright red lipstick to complete this application!
No matter which version of the story you prefer, you can bring it to life with our Disney 101 Dalmatians costumes. We have Dalmatian costumes in sizes from infant to adult plus, and Cruella costumes for women and girls. And if you’re going to become Cruella, be sure to practice your evil cackle.

In the series finale, she uses an inflatable bodysuit to disguise herself as a shapely blonde surfer clad in a bikini. She plans to seduce Roger, to prompt Anita to divorce him so she (Cruella) can buy the farm. When Anita goes swimming, Cruella asks Roger to swim with her and then tries to kiss him. Her inflatable suit is popped by the puppies’ chicken friend, turning Cruella into the shape of a surfboard.
Following the heroes’ escape back to Storybrooke, Hook teamed up with the deceased King Arthur to locate the storybook so they could tell Emma how to defeat Hades. They went to find Cruella at the diner, where she reacted with disdain towards seeing Hook, but she coyly regarded Arthur with keen interest because of his good looks. When questioned about the haunting booth, Cruella admitted she destroyed it for good, since she didn’t want anyone moving on if it meant she had to be stuck in the Underworld, too. Hook then pressed her about the book’s whereabouts, which Cruella was surprisingly forthcoming about. She knew they would eventually figure out the truth even if she lied, and then told them that she put the book in the River of Souls. Cruella was later dethroned by Arthur who then ruled the Underworld for fifty years as she became a depressed and bitter woman who drank in the local bar with Sir Mordred.

Does Jasper ever speak?
In “The Big Day”, Jasper is shown to be fully speaking now and has been for at least six months as it is revealed that there was a time jump.
Along with Close’s performance, Cruella’s costumes (by Anthony Powell and Rosemary Burrows) received appreciative attention, including a spread in Vanity Fair. Claws were applied to her gloves, while her necklaces were made from teeth, to add to the idea that Cruella enjoyed wearing parts of dead animals. Nails were also projected from the heels to make them especially vicious in appearance. Some of her clothes were made out of leather or PVC, and Cruella always wore much makeup. She is seen in the film always smoking to give the appearance of a mysterious “villain”.

Is Cruella a Halloween costume?
Cruella DeVil is a classic Halloween costume, whether you’re a fan of Disney’s original animated 101 Dalmatians film or the more recent live-action origin story starring Emma Stone that showed us another side of the glamorous, high-fashion villain.
Cruella de Vil is a fictional character in British author Dodie Smith’s 1956 novel The Hundred and One Dalmatians. A pampered and glamorous London heiress and fashion designer, she appears in Walt Disney Productions’ 17th animated feature film, 101 Dalmatians (1961), voiced by Betty Lou Gerson; in Disney’s 101 Dalmatians II: Patch’s London Adventure (2002), voiced by Susanne Blakeslee; in Disney’s live-action 101 Dalmatians (1996) and 102 Dalmatians (2000), portrayed by Glenn Close; as well as Cruella (2021), portrayed by Emma Stone; and in many other Disney sequels and spin-offs.Cruella is also one of the Disney Villains Mickey fights in Disney’s Hollywood Studios version of Fantasmic! Nighttime Show Spectacular in Walt Disney World. In Disney On Ice “Celebrations”, Cruella was one of the Villains who appears during the Halloween Party.

The film features a song written by Mel Leven, using her name as the title, sung by the Dalmatians’ owner Roger (Bill Lee), who holds the woman in contempt. The lyric begins with: “Cruella de Vil, Cruella de Vil. If she doesn’t scare you, no evil thing will…”, possibly foreshadowing the deranged, glowing-red-eyed face Cruella assumes while chasing the van.
In 2002, Forbes ranked Disney’s Cruella as the thirteenth wealthiest fiction character, citing the single 65-year-old has a net worth of $875 million, obtained through inheritance. She was also listed as the 39th greatest villain in American cinema in AFI’s 100 Years… 100 Heroes and Villains. Moreover, in Ultimate Disney’s Top 30 Disney Villains Countdown, Cruella ranked #6.Cruella hires two thieves named Jasper and Horace Badun to steal the puppies, which they do. Both Roger and the police immediately suspect her, but the latter fail to find anything despite still investigating. However, fearing the ongoing investigation, Cruella goes to her ancestral home in Suffolk where the puppies are being kept, and angrily demands that her henchmen kill and skin the puppies for her that very night, exploding a bottle of wine in the fireplace to drive home her point. The next morning, Cruella learns that the puppies have escaped the house at night, being rescued by Pongo and Perdita. She and her henchmen set off in pursuit, and she berates Jasper and Horace for reckless driving, despite her obviously worse driving skills.

In this adaptation, Cruella is in either her late 80s or early 90s. She has lost her hair, but not her mobility or her vanity. She hides her aging with a special spray.Cruella is an archetypal corporate villain who will seize on any scheme to make money, and Jasper and Horace are her oft-fired company employees, in this version. Cruella’s schemes involve such things as drilling oil from the swamp near Dearly farm (thereby polluting it), buying Kanine Krunchies and replacing the nutritious ingredients with sawdust and chalk, or sending Jasper and Horace to drive out the owners of Mom and Pop’s Grocery Store so she can buy it herself.

The One Hundred and One Dalmatians describes Cruella as the last descendant of a prosperous and notorious family; she appears wealthy, but is in fact heavily in debt. She is married to a furrier, whose first name is never mentioned by anyone. Many characters remark that Cruella only married him for his occupation. When Mrs. Dearly asks Cruella what her married name is, Cruella retorts that, in contrast to the usual patriarchal custom, she has made her husband adopt her surname as his own; however, she and her husband have no children, meaning the line will still die out with her. Cruella is portrayed as the tyrannical figure in the marriage, and her husband as a meek, subservient man who seldom speaks and obeys his wife entirely. He keeps his entire fur collection in the house so Cruella can wear whichever she likes. Her favorite is a white mink cloak, which she usually wears with tight satin dresses and jewels. The dresses and jewels are always in contrasting colors—for instance, a black dress with ropes of pearls, or a red dress with ropes of emeralds. However, her jewels are later revealed to be mostly sham.In the following book Shell Game, she assists the Queen and Maleficent in stealing Walt’s original notes on Chernabog from the Archives. She then boards the Dream for the two-week cruise, along with the rest of the Overtakers. She commands the Lion King’ hyenas, Happy and Howley, having them patrol the ship to keep the Keepers from finding Chernabog.

Cruella is the only meetable character from the 101 Dalmatians franchise at the Disney Parks and Resorts, and is usually located on Main Street, U.S.A.
Disney’s animated version of Cruella first appeared in 1961’s One Hundred and One Dalmatians, in which she is voiced by Betty Lou Gerson and animated by Marc Davis who together crafted her into an iconic and memorable character. Cruella is one of the few characters to be completely controlled by a single animator, and Davis claimed that Betty Lou Gerson’s vocal performance was his greatest inspiration when it came to the character. Disney based its version of Cruella on the personality and mannerisms of Tallulah Bankhead, and her long, lanky physical design came from Mary Wickes, who served as her live-action model. The cool detachment of the original character was replaced by a crazed mania, in which Cruella only barely clung to a sheen of glamour. For unexplained reasons, Cruella’s cat and husband were omitted from the Disney version. Cruella drives a very distinctive automobile, colored red and black, which strongly resembles a Mercedes-Benz 500K Cabriolet.Cruella’s chauffeur-driven car is black-and-white striped; Mr. Dearly describes it as “a moving zebra crossing”. Cruella boasts that it has the loudest horn in London, which she insists on sounding for the Dearly couple. When Cruella has guests for dinner, all of her food is strangely colored and tastes strongly of pepper. When Mr. Dearly comments she might find her mink cloak too warm for a mild autumn evening, Cruella laughs that she never finds anything too warm; she constantly stokes a roaring fire and complains of being cold despite the unbearable heat. The flat is portrayed as a luxurious version of Hell, with all the rooms made of marble and colored garishly in green, red, or black. Her guests also meet her abused white Persian cat, whom Cruella freely admits she would have killed if the cat wasn’t worth so much money.

In the present day, Cruella’s marriage had fallen apart as the FBI was repossessing her husband’s belongings. Mr. Gold and Ursula convinced her to join them in finding the Author to get happy endings. Cruella played little importance in the plot, until the Author was released from the book; unable to kill him herself, she pretended to threaten Henry Mills’s (Jared S. Gilmore) life to force Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison) and Regina to do so. However, Emma confronted her, not knowing the restriction the Author placed on Cruella, and magically blasted her off a cliff to her death.This film increased the physical comedy of the Disney animated film, even veering into more juvenile humor, such as Cruella falling into a vat of old molasses. Close’s performance was universally well-received and her sex appeal as the character was also credited. Close has commented on how demanding the slapstick physicality of the role was while wearing nail-heeled boots and corsets. Close also insisted that she fall into the molasses herself for genuine acting instead of delegating it to a stunt double. However, the live-action film was not as critically successful as the animated movie. In 102 Dalmatians, while under the effect of Dr. Ivan Pavlov’s hypnotherapy treatment, Cruella is cured of her fur addiction and released from prison on parole, three years after the events of the first film. She insists on being called “Ella” because “Cruella sounds so… cruel”. Reformed, she becomes completely devoted to saving animals. She is appalled by even the smallest sight of fur fashion, boarding up all her fur clothing and the drawing of herself in a Dalmatian puppy coat. She quits her characteristic habits, such as wearing fur clothing, long nails, extravagant hairstyles, and of course, smoking. In most of her incarnations, Cruella kidnaps the 15 puppies of the main Dalmatian character, Pongo, intending to turn them into fur coats along with other Dalmatian puppies she legally bought before. The live-action Disney film reveals that Cruella chooses to skin puppies because when short-haired dogs grow older, their fur becomes very coarse and does not sell as well in the fur fashion industry as the fine, soft fur of puppies.Cruella eventually marries a man named Jack and confident in their future together, signs over her fortune to her mother. At 25 Jack dies in a fire, supposedly of suicide after seeing the massive amount of debt he had. With just the clothes on her back, Cruella goes to an old mansion called Hell Hall which her father had set aside from her in the case of an emergency. She then goes to meet with Anita, whom she has kept in touch with supposedly for updates on Perdita, and finds herself furious with Anita. She then vows to herself to get back at her, and decides to do so by taking Perdita’s coming litter of puppies and turning them into a coat for her mother. In the seventh book of the Villains series by Serena Valentino, Cruella De Vil tells her story in the first person starting with her childhood. She describes herself growing up, with her father dying at an early age after gifting her daughter a pair of jade earrings that were said to have been cursed by the Odd Sisters, figures in the fairy tale books Cruella loved to read as a child. Her mother is a self-absorbed socialite, hardly ever seeing her daughter and giving her gifts, which Cruella equates to her mother loving her. The only two people that truly care about her are her governess, Miss Pricket, and her friend Anita who comes from a lower-class family. In the Christmas Special “A Christmas Cruella”, it is revealed that, as a child, Cruella had wanted nothing more in life than a Dalmatian puppy. Her parents however never celebrated holidays or birthdays with her and always left her in the care of foreign nannies while they went on vacations, sending her nothing but clothes as gifts. She had a single white streak in her hair as a child. She finally snapped and turned evil in her teens, when her parents led her to believe they would be home for Christmas with her dream puppy, and then sent cardboard cutouts of themselves and a puppy instead. Her hair also turned half-white at this time.Cruella appears in the series 101 Dalmatian Street and is voiced by Michelle Gomez. Acting as an alternate continuation, the series takes place sixty years after the events of the original 1961 film (2021). Cruella’s great-nephew, Hunter de Vil, plans to capture the family of Doug and Delilah, descendants of Pongo and Perdita living in Camden Town, and bring them to his great-aunt, now in Switzerland. However, Hunter is unaware she intends to kill the Dalmatian family to make the fur coat. When he finds out, he turns on her and causes her to be injured by a machine. She is later arrested for her crimes.

She later ended up in the Enchanted Forest, where she became infamous for turning animals into outerwear. Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle) recruited her, Ursula (Merrin Dungey) and Maleficent (Kristin Bauer van Straten) to acquire the Dark Curse, but he double-crossed them and left them to be killed by the Chernabog. Escaping together, Cruella joined the two in trying to get assistance from Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Prince Charming (Josh Dallas) in preventing the Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla) from casting the curse. The Tree of Wisdom they consulted refused to answer due to Snow’s pregnancy. Along with Ursula, Cruella was asked by Maleficent to act as a guard while she went through childbirth as a dragon. As a result, Cruella was sucked into a portal with Ursula and the child to the Land Without Magic, due to a spell cast by the Apprentice. She and the Sea Witch steal the egg the baby was in and use the magic to prolong their youth in the magicless world. She later married Mr. Feinberg and lived in a mansion off Long island in New York.
It is also believed that the inspiration for the name began in 1939 when Dodie Smith purchased a new Rolls-Royce 25/30 “Sedanca de Ville” motorcar in which she and her pet Dalmatian “Pongo” frequently travelled, which also formed the basis of the cartoon imagery of Cruella’s own motorcar. In automotive coachbuilding, the term “de Ville” had originally indicated a vehicle with a separate compartment for the driver or chauffeur but by mid-twentieth century simply bespoke ostentatious luxury, as befits the overprivileged Cruella.Cruella appears in The 101 Dalmatians Musical, the stage musical adaptation of the novel. She was portrayed by Rachel York; however, the actress announced on her blog that she had stepped down from the role of Cruella de Vil to pursue other projects. The role was taken over by Sara Gettelfinger. In the 2022 musical adaptation of the novel, Cruella was portrayed by Kate Fleetwood. Susanne Blakeslee also voiced Cruella in the television series House of Mouse, which featured a running gag in which she inspects dogs from other Disney films with a measuring ruler. She also appeared in the direct-to-video film Mickey’s House of Villains as one of the main villains who helps Jafar take over the House of Mouse for Halloween night. In the film, Cruella is wealthy, rude and spoiled. She makes fun of Anita Radcliffe and her husband Roger for making a living from songwriting. Cruella desires to make a fur coat from the Radcliffes’ Dalmatians, but does not tell the Radcliffes this, simply demanding to know when the puppies arrive. Upon the night of the puppies’ birth, Cruella is at first dismayed to find their coats completely spotless, but cheers up when Anita tells her that the spots will appear in a few weeks. Cruella makes an offer to buy the puppies, all the while mocking Roger for his songwriting career and splattering Roger and Pongo with ink from her pen. When Roger finally stands up to her and tells her the puppies are not for sale, she furiously ends her friendship with Anita and storms out, vowing vengeance.Cruella De Vil appears in the 2015 Disney Channel Original Movie Descendants. She is portrayed by actress Wendy Raquel Robinson. Along with other villains, Cruella has been exiled to the Isle of the Lost, where she has lived for at least twenty years. She has a 14-year-old son, Carlos, whom she abuses and treats like a servant, making him sleep near the bear traps she uses to guard her fur coats.Cruella first appears in Power Play, the fourth book of the young-adult book series by Ridley Pearson, Kingdom Keepers, as a member of the Overtakers, a group of Disney Villains. She is valuable to them since she knows the ways of the modern world. Cruella works with the Evil Queen to free Maleficent and Chernabog, while making sure the Keepers stay off their trail. Using DHI technology, she and the Queen head for the power facility and shut down the electricity, allowing Maleficent and Chernabog to escape their cells.

In the seventh book “The Insider”, Cruella joins Tia Dalma, the Queen and Judge Doom’s group in Toontown; she calls an army of animals to the area with a simple command, only to be knocked out by Amanda’s telekinesis. Finn later discovers Cruella had been living in a luxurious decommissioned train compartment and tries strangling her to death. She flees in terror, but has a wrench tossed at her. She is last seen slumped on the ground, bleeding.
In this version, Cruella and the Baduns are given their own song, “It’s Their Furs”, which they sing together when Cruella orders the brothers to kill the pups. During the song, Cruella dictates the furs are to be labeled “Hers and Hers” instead of “His and Hers”, implying that her husband will not get this first batch. It is later revealed that there is still the risk Mr. de Vil will sell Dalmatian furs down the line, prompting the Dalmatians and the White Persian Cat to destroy Mr. de Vil’s fur stocks, as in the novel. Amazon Audible later released this production as an audiobook, available for streaming online or through the app.Once Hades’s heart was restarted, and he planned to leave the Underworld with Zelena, Cruella teamed up with the Blind Witch; Hades offered to let them rule the Underworld in his absence and help trap the heroes there. Delighted with the idea of getting to torment souls for eternity, Cruella agreed to the deal.

When Cruella reveals the plan to her mother, her mother is horrified and demands she return to Hell Hall. Cruella goes ahead with her plan and rounds up not only Perdita’s litter, but all the Dalmatian puppies from miles around. Before she can kill them though, the puppies escape. Cruella then descends further into madness, rambling about another grand scheme to get those puppies. The novel ends with a note from Serena Valentino, saying she visited Hell Hall to take down Cruella’s story and that she still wears the jade earrings to this day.

Who is Cruella in love with?
Later, the two fight while Cruella is wearing the earrings, and Perdita urinates on Cruella’s fur coat, which leads to her throwing Anita and Perdita out of the house. Cruella eventually marries a man named Jack and confident in their future together, signs over her fortune to her mother.
Cruella initially enlists the help of a painter named Lars to cure her of her obsession for fur coats. For a while, he paints beautiful spotted paintings for her, soothing her mania, but eventually starts to regress, demanding he makes paintings out of puppy skins and rehiring Jasper and Horace to steal the puppies again accordingly. When Lars, an animal lover, refuses to harm the puppies, Cruella reverts to her original plan to kill the dogs for a coat, eventually going completely insane once the puppies escape again. After an extended chase, she winds up stranded in the Thames, where she is arrested and imprisoned in an insane asylum. After this second debacle, Jasper and Horace renounce her completely and go legitimate, starting a shop together.The name Cruella de Vil is a pun of the words cruel and devil, an allusion that is emphasized by having her English country house nicknamed ‘Hell Hall’. The name ‘de Vil’ is also a literary allusion to Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1897), in which the realty firm Mitchell, Sons & Candy write a letter to Lord Godalming, informing him that the purchaser of a house in Piccadilly, London is “a foreign nobleman, Count De Ville”. Count De Ville, however, proves to be an alias for Count Dracula himself.In The Simpsons short Plusaversary, Cruella appears as one of the attendees at the party in Moe’s Tavern. In another The Simpsons short, Welcome to the Club, Cruella appears along with other Disney Villains trying to convince Lisa Simpson how fun it is to be a villain.
