Pongo, Perdita and all 99 puppies -- plus Cruella de Vil, of course -- star in the canine classic at the center of this spot-on Platinum collection, complete with a recreation of Walt’s correspondence with original Dalmatians author Dodie Smith.
Sure, we just got a perfectly fine DVD of this fairy tale classic a few years back, but who could let the 50th anniversary of this Beauty pass by with out waking her up to celebrate, especially if she looks as gorgeous as ever in high def?
The surprise of the year, this direct-to-video spin-off showed that such things could be as rich and rewarding as any feature film offering. If the series keeps up this quality, our gal Tink will soon be giving those princesses a run for their money.
Yes, the movie’s good enough to deserve two spots in the top ten, especially with this home edition packed with superb bonus material, not the least of which being the hilarious companion short, BURN-E.
The fourth time was the charm for The Donald, who finally makes it into the Toon Talk top ten with his concluding collection of cartoon classics, including his Cinemascope period and such educational gems as Donald in Mathmagic Land.
