"Better The De Vil You Know" is the forty-sixth episode of 101 Dalmatian Street. It premiered on Disney Channel on February 22, 2020.

Synopsis

Hunter is on a mission to get Cruella's fur coat.

Plot

Following the previous episode, Doug and Delilah tell their children that they need to be careful as Hunter could come back at any time to capture them. Feeling that last time was his fault, Dylan takes up the responsibility to help defend their home from Hunter. However, the rest of the Dalmatians do not take Hunter as a threat too seriously, with Dizzy and Dee Dee calling him "Mr. Funny Face". Nevertheless, Dylan continues to be ever vigilant to the point that he barely sleeps. Meanwhile, Hunter as returned to his high rise building to speak with his great aunt Cruella by phone. Cruella is furious that he failed to capture the Dalmatians for her fur coat and chastises him. Furthermore, she apparently neglected to look for him when he was trapped in the shipping crate for six months. Hunter decides to finally double down on his mission.

Hunter shows up to once again capture the puppies, but their quick thinking prevents him from making a good enough effort. While the rest of the Dalmatians have accepted that he is an ineffectual villain, Dylan still puts the Dalmatians through numerous training methods so that they can be quick in case anything happens. Doug and Delilah must head into work when there have been a series of major accidents, apparently caused by Cruella's reckless driving. The parents leave with Dylan telling them that he will keep the house under control and prevent Hunter from capturing them while they wait for the double decker bus to come and take them to the country.

Hunter catches onto their plan and hijacks their bus. The Dalmatians fail to realize that he has done so until they all get on. Hunter proceeds to capture all the puppies and bags them. As he heads straight to Dorothy, Dylan finally surmises the courage to approach Hunter. Exploiting his dog habits, Dylan uses a squeaky toy to distract him and gets him to leave while all the dalmatians rush back inside their home. Dolly congratulates Dylan on handling the situation, but he has already fallen asleep from being awake for so long. Hunter continues to run through the streets until he is scared into an alley by a familiar red vehicle. Out comes Cruella, in silhouette, who tells Hunter that she will take over now.
