"Channels" is the first segment of the fifty-fifth episode of 101 Dalmatians: The Series.
When the pups and Spot are watching Thunderbolt, they get interrupted by a news reporter who is videotaping Anita because she locked her car keys in. While Horace tries to get the keys, two escaped burglars appear and try to steal Cruella's car and money. Meanwhile, Captain, Princess, Duchess, and Lt. Pug fight over the TV while the pups (and Spot) try to catch the burglars.
- The criminals from "Market Mayhem" appear in this episode, only their voices sound different and their appearance seems to be more gray and rough.
- The show that Duchess and Princess watch, As the World Churns, seems to be a pun on As the World Turns.
- This marks the appearance of Queenie in 101 Dalmatians: The Series, also claiming her to be Duchess' cousin.
- Duchess seems to have a thing against As the World Churns. Despite claiming to know the show in "Purred It Through the Grapevine", she may like it for the bull she thinks is called Yow, though.
- Thunderbolt is shown to have an evil twin in his show here. Thunderbolt claims to always want one in Patch's London Adventure.
- The Dalmatians seem to know how to drive better since "Frisky Business".
- When the Dairy Trophy falls on Spot's head, she thinks the sky is falling; this marks one of two times she makes a Chicken Little homage, one being when Rolly asks her on this in "Alive N' Chicken".
- Rolly mentions a show called The Gravy Bunch; this may be a likely homage to The Brady Bunch.
- This episode claims there's a dairy farm near the Dearly Farm.
