101 Dalmatians Wiki

"Good Neighbor Cruella" is the first segment of the sixty-second episode of 101 Dalmatians: The Series.


P.H. De Vil splits Cruella into her two major personality components: good and evil. Cruella unleashes her good side on the Dearlys.


  • The concept of a Good Cruella is also seen in 102 Dalmatians, only it is shown by therapy there instead of by clones.
  • Cadpig questions, "Who was that aproned woman?", which is a likely homage to the line: "Who was that masked man?" in The Lone Ranger.
  • The Good Cruella does the Dearlys' house interior in the style of M. C. Escher.
  • When Good Cruella is asking the Dearlys if they wish for anything to drink, this is a possible homage to Young Frankenstein.
  • Rolly claims Cruella has a scent of old leather.
  • When Good Cruella has a number of animals surrounding her, one of them is Pumbaa from The Lion King franchise.
  • Cruella refers to a soap opera she likes known as The Young and the Ruthless, a likely homage to The Young and the Restless.
  • This episode implies that Cruella's good side is her possible conscience.
