In One Hundred and One Dalmatians, this vehicle is a rickety old truck that is driven by Horace and Jasper. When the Baduns dognap Pongo and Perdita's puppies, they make their getaway with them in their truck. During the car chase scene, Horace and Jasper plan to hit the van with the Dalmatians in it and ram them into the ditch. However, they lose control and the truck hits Cruella's car instead, sending them both crashing down into the ditch below with the truck and Cruella's car all in pieces.
In 101 Dalmatians, it is a 1982 Ford Transit MkII, but it is still used for the same purpose as in the original animated film. While they are at a pub, having dognapped the puppies, Whizzer tries barking from the truck, alerting Kipper, who informs the animals on the farm about it. While they are at Hell Hall, some raccoons and squirrels are seen tinkering with it. One squirrel chews its wires under the open hood, while a raccoon places a walnut in its muffler. When they hear its horn, they notice the raccoons and chase them off. The truck initially had starting problems, although they were resolved after Jasper pressed the gas pedal hard enough to force the walnut out of the exhaust, right into Horace's mouth (as he had been investigating the exhaust at Jasper's orders). It eventually bursts up into flames when Horace attempts to turn on the heater (due to having caught frostbite from falling into a frozen lake earlier).
Horace and Jasper are shown to have two trucks in 101 Dalmatians: The Series, one of which looks closer to their normal truck, and also a scarlet pick-up truck.
In "Best of Show", to make sure Vendella wins, Horace and Jasper lock Lucky, Rolly and Cadpig in the Truck. Fortunately, the Dalmatians are able to operate the truck's buttons and manage to get it to open. In "Close But No Cigar", Horace and Jasper drive the truck to look for Cruella's winning ticket. They chase the Dalmatians all the way to a pie factory, but crash their truck into the factory's mixer. They also appear in the truck in "UnLucky", pretending to be from the telephone company.
The scarlet pick-up truck appears in "Oozy Does It", where the Dalmatians sneak into the truck to learn where the ooze is coming from. They flatten the tires before Horace and Jasper get back to Hiccup Hole to dump more of the ooze. This allows the Dalmatians and the animals of the Dearly Farm to dig a trench, leading the ooze towards Villa DeVil. In "Roll Out the Pork Barrel", Rolly and Mayor Pig take a delivery of kibble from the back of the pick-up truck and send it rolling into the swamp. Horace and Jasper also appear in the truck in "Jurassic Bark", where they look around the Dearly Farm, trying to find Cave Pup.
The truck also appears in Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom, where we see Horace and Jasper discuss if the Dalmatians are working with Merlin. The guests use the Sorcerer's Crest on the back of their spell cards to cause the truck to explode.
The truck is also seen in Disney's The Aristocats, except as a blue milk truck which O'Malley, Duchess, Toulouse, Marie and Berlioz sneak a ride on. This is a possible use of recycled animation, considering the time setting of the film.
- In the 1996 film, there were three trucks used. At one time, all three were at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. Yet now there is one left while the location of the other two remain unknown. The existing one remains sitting on the backlot tram tour at Disney's Hollywood Studios, albeit in bad condition.
