The cherished owners or 'pets' as they are called are Roger and Anita, who are brought together by some sheer coincidence in a park, walking their dogs. They get married and move into an apartment together, and one day Anita's old friend from school, one of Disney's and one of the most notorious villains in film history, the aptly named Cruella De Vil learns that Pongo and Perdita are to have puppies. After she is refused to have them, Cruella plans to just take them. Have them kidnapped, or dognapped. So she hires two bumbling henchmen 'Horris and Jasper' to steal Perdita's puppies and collaborate them with 84 others so she can make them into a dalmatian fur coat. Pongo and Perdita, with a little help of their animal friends, undertake a daring rescue to save the pups from a terrible fate.
Here's a clip from the film.
In terms of talking about quality, Disney have done it again. In creating a memorable, well loved classic which families alike can enjoy and thrive in the adventure of it. This unlike the fairy tale stories which are all fine and proper, films like Snow White and Sleeping Beauty are sensational but this is just a situation where you've got a proper peril and how do you avoid it? In a dramatic, drastic rescue mission.
All of the puppies are adorable, really well hand drawn / animated and realistic. They make the film exciting, comedic, and fun to watch. It is about them after all. What's good about the puppies is they all have personality. Rolle for instance likes to eat a lot, Patch has got a spot and so on. By adding this depth of development, It sort of creates a hold on the audience and you feel for them more when all these horrible things start happening.
