Disney's cute and cruel canine charmer

Cute and cruel, this charmer gave Disney a new leash of life after Sleeping Beauty tanked.

Out went fairyland, in came modern London where a muso and his wife’s mutts Pongo and Perdita parent 15 bundles of joy, animated with puppy love.

Ciggy-shaped Cruella De Vil steals Pongo’s litter to make a coat; cue a capering climax of old-school escapes, vehicular mayhem and prescient ideas (the ‘Twilight Bark’, aka a worldwide woof).

Propelled by George Bruns’ jazzy score, this is spot-on ’60s Disney.
