This "101 Dalmatians" is the delightful 1961 animated original--skip the live action nonsense with Glenn Close--that dragged Walt Disney kicking and screaming into the then newer, modern era of film animation. Indeed, the film's modernity is a distinct departure from traditional Disney fare like 1959's classically animated "Sleeping Beauty," with its urban settings, contemporary-looking characters, television send-ups (love the "Canine Crunchies" commercial) and modern jazz score.

Initially Walt hated it, to the chagrin of his loyal Disney craftsmen excited by the new techniques. But by 1967's "The Jungle Book" he had more or less come around.

This double-disc Diamond Edition (one disc is Blu-ray) offers some terrific bonus features, including making of and behind the scenes interviews and classic shorts. Dodie Smith, author of the 1956 book upon which the film was based, was captivated by this movie, convinced the animation and voice acting improved her original story. She wrote Walt Disney to tell him so and her letter is featured in one of the bonus segments.
Among other clever touches, look for characters from Disney's 1955 "Lady and the Tramp" in the pivotal Twilight Bark sequence.
