One Hundred and One Dalmatians (1961)

⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
Generally speaking, One Hundred and One Dalmatians feels different to most of the older Disney animated Classics. The look is quite stylised and feels like an application of different techniques, ranging from water colour to graphic pens. Production commenced hot on the heels of Sleeping Beauty (1959), a film which also noted for its stylised and angular animation, but which however feels odder and (naturally) more dated than Dalmatians. I believe the recipe worked better in Dalmatians. The animation style more similar to that used in Sylvain Chomet’s The Triplets of Belleville (2003) and The Illusionist (2010), than, say Dumbo (1941) or Lady and the Tramp (1955).
