Disney's Dalmatian Vacation: The Movie
If you were around in the 90's, you may remember watching a cartoon by Disney called Dalmatian Vacation (also known as Disney's 101 Dalmatians: The Series), or even reading the short line of comic strips of the same name, which were a spinoff from the highly popular 101 Dalmatians movies, but how many of you have seen Disney's Dalmatian Vacation: The Movie?
Dalmatian Vacation: The Movie carries on from its television series, with Anita and Roger, going away on their second honeymoon, only to have Perdita, Pongo, all of their 101 puppies, their ever loyal chicken, spot and even the dastardly Cruella de Vil herself come along for the trip too.
Not long into their trip, the couple find out that they were never legally married and end up in a race against Cruella, to make it to the church on time, in order to get married and save their beloved farm, all the while running into all sorts of wacky and wild adventures, amongst others, they meet a sensible biker gang, called the Hex Angels, an Alien conspiracy believing cult, who love their mashed potatoes and even a group of brainwashed chickens.
Be sure to be on the lookout for a cameo from Sebastian, from Disney's The Little Mermaid and not to mention the funniest sight of all, Cruella dressed as a Baywatch babe, in an inflatable suit, which will have you and the kids laughing out loud!
All in all, this is a fun adventure that every Dalmatians fan can enjoy and it was also nice to see "the barking chain" from the original film re-introduced, when the puppies put out a call for help.
Disney's Dalmatian Vacation: The Movie, is rated G for general exhibition and has a running time, of approximately 64 minutes and is currently only available on VHS, though due to popularity may hopefully be finding itself being released on DVD in the near future.
