101 Dalmatians

Pongo "marries" female dog Perdita, and also gets his master, Roger Radcliff, to marry Perdita's mistress Anita.

Before long Perdita has given birth to 15 puppies, but Anita's boss, Cruella de Vil, arranges to kidnap them in order to make a dalmatian fur coat. She also kidnaps other puppies, bringing the total to 99.

Pongo and Perdita spring into action, and with the help of other dogs and the twilight bark, manage to located the puppies in Hell Hall, Cruella's home. They manage to free the puppies and escape, evading Cruella and her henchmen Horace and Jasper, who get their just desserts.

Roger and Anita adopt all 99 puppies and settle down with their new family of 101 dalmatians.
