The Dalmatian Puppies are a set of tritagonists who first appeared in 101 Dalmatians. Fifteen of these puppies are Pongo and Perdita's children who get kidnapped by the evil Cruella De Vil, and their parents journey off to go rescue them, eventually adopting the other 84. The puppies soon became the most popular characters from the franchise, along with Cruella De Vil.


One Hundred and One Dalmatians

In the first film, Perdita gives birth to a litter of fifteen puppies who are later kidnapped by two criminals named Jasper and Horace, who were actually hired by Cruella De Vil. While at Hell Hall, the ancestral home of the De Vil family, it turns out that Cruella had also gotten 84 other Dalmatians, but through legitimate means. It later turns out that Cruella wants to kill the puppies and turn them all into dog-skin fur coats. Perdita and her husband, Pongo, rescue the original fifteen puppies, and they decide to adopt the other 84 puppies as their children because they don't want to let them get killed.

101 Dalmatians II: Patch's London Adventure

In the film's sequel the movie revolves around Patch who ends up being separated from his family. During the film, Patch meets the puppies' greatest canine hero (after their mother and father): Thunderbolt, the star of their favorite television series.

101 Dalmatians: The Series

This animated spin-off of the live-action film (and the original animated film) revolves around three puppies: Lucky, Rolly and Cadpig. The three are also joined by Spot, a spotted chicken who wants to be a puppy. Minor pups that appear in the series include Two-Tone, Whizzer, Dipstick, Patch, and franchise newcomer Tripod. Penny was originally going to appear in the series, but was dropped during production. Jewel was often mentioned, but never physically appeared, while Freckles makes a cameo appearance in one episode only. Neither Pepper nor Fidget have been mentioned to appear in the series.

House of Mouse

The puppies, along with other characters, appear in the television series House of Mouse. The puppies' most notable appearance is where Ludwig Von Drake names many Disney characters and says the puppies as one falls off and lands on Pongo, with Ludwig commenting, "They need another chair."

Kingdom Hearts

99 Puppies

The puppies appear in the series as a quest Sora can partake during the game. At some point (likely following their capture by and subsequent rescue from Cruella De Vil) the Dalmatians' world was destroyed and the puppies were separated from their parents. During the chaos, the puppies were somehow bundled into groups of three and forced into chests which then landed in various worlds. During his journey, Sora can find the puppies and send them to Traverse Town, where Pongo and Perdita are.

Disney Parks

In the Disney parks, the puppies are only seen in parades and shows such as Fantasmic! Patch can be spotted in the parade in Walt Disney World Resort's Magic Kingdom. In the Disney All Star movie themed hotel in Walt Disney World, a certain secetion is dedicated to One Hundred and One Dalmatians. The puppies were seen in Disneyland Paris' Disney's Maleficious Halloween Party during Cruella's scene.


  • In the 1985 One Hundred and One Dalmatians book, which was part of the Disney's Wonderful World of Reading collection, there were only ten puppies that Perdita gave birth to. This was fixed for the 1996 re-issue of the book.
  • In the 1996 movie, Anita originally said no when considering to take in the other 84 puppies, but Roger and Nanny talked her into it.
  • At various points in the first movie (most notable during the climax and ending), the puppies' barks and whimpers were recycled sound effects from Lady, when she was a puppy, and Young Yeller from Old Yeller. Specifically, their whimpers were from Lady and their barks were from Young Yeller.
