101 Dalmatians: This Week on Hoarders...

Welcome to the 60s!

This week Aly and Sarrah launch into a new decade and a drastically different style with Disney's 101 Dalmatians, 1961.

Aly takes us back to the source material with author Dodie Smith, and a rundown of how drastically different some of the characters and plot were. Sarrah explains xerography, a new background technique, and we both discuss storyman Bill Peet. 101 Dalmatians ushered in a new style for the Disney Animation Studios, one that Walt wasn't exactly thrilled with (but we absolutely adore), and not just in the art!

Our recap notices a distinct lack of the Generic Disney Chorus, Aly cannot shut up about Roger and Anita, Sarrah is intoxicated by Cruella and we both ponder; what crosses the line into hoarding?

We're doggone excited to share this episode with you! (yeah, we had to).
