101 Dalmatians Wiki

"The Fungus Among Us" is the nineteenth episode of 101 Dalmatians: The Series.


Cruella tries to steal a fungus from under the Dearlys' barn to make a perfume, even though it may mean the barn will have to be torn down.


  • Early storyboards of this episode show Cruella to be smoking.
  • Cruella is voiced by Tress MacNeille (who also voices Spot's mother, Cornelia) in this episode instead of April Winchell.
  • When Lucky is about to use the hose on Horace and Jasper, he points his paw and says, "Engage!" This is an homage to Star Trek: The Next Generation, with a phrase that Captain Picard tends to use.
    • Official storyboards confirm that this is indeed an intentional homage.
  • Cruella refers to the Dearly Farm as "Barkingham Palace" like she does in "Home is Where the Bark Is".
  • When Cruella is asking what she is paying Horace and Jasper for, this line seems to be voiced by Tress MacNeille (who also voices Cruella in "Close But No Cigar").
  • Cruella having a button on her desk that activates a trap door may be an homage to The Simpsons, with Mr. Burns.
  • When Horace is chasing the bulldozer, the scene seems to flip horizontally for a second before reverting back to its normal position.
  • Dumpling tries flirting with Lucky in this episode.
