Trivia

  • Among the various pilots they try for 101 Dalmatians: The Series, we have some set in England.
    • "The Dearly Bunch" is an homage to The Brady Bunch.
    • "First Bloodhound: Part Two" is a likely homage to Rambo.
    • "Doggie Houser, M.D. (Medical Dog)" seems to be an homage to Doogie Howser, M.D.
    • "2001 Dalmatians" is a likely homage to Space Odyssey.
    • The Dalmatians also act in a Simpsons-style couch gag.
    • Ironically too, the television scene from the animated 101 Dalmatians is one of the things that got Matt Groening, creator of The Simpsons, into animation.
    • Cruella and Spot also seem to appear in a Road Runner homage too.
    • "The Cruella Show" seems to be similar to the look of David Letterman.
  • Some scenes from various episodes are also used as pilots too; such as "Invasion of the Doggy Snatchers", "Howl Noon", "The Maltese Chicken", and "You Slipped a Disk". Additionally, Spot's audition is shown in "The High Price of Fame".
  • One of the guests on Cruella's show is called "Maldoona". This is a possible homage to pop star Madonna.
  • The one set to play Cruella (before Cruella takes the role) also appears in "The Artist Formerly Known as Spot".
  • Though she doesn't have a physical appearance in 101 Dalmatians: The Series, Cruella calls Jewel's name in "The Dearly Bunch" scene.
  • Lucky claims that "First Bloodhound: Part Two" is the title to one of Thunderbolt's roles in "Watch for Falling Idols".
  • In "The Dearly Bunch" scene, the clapper board reads the show title as: "Dalmatians 101". This was the original title for 101 Dalmatians: The Series before they altered it.
