Theorists, maybe Cruella had the right idea. Wait, no! I'm not talking about making coats out of cute, defenseless puppies. I meant that they cost a LOT of money. She tells Roger and Anita that they simply can't afford to keeps them all, so they should sell them to her. Well, THAT is a bad idea but maybe she was onto something. Raising and providing for three humans PLUS 101 Dalmatians must cost a LOT of money. How much? Time for us to to get out our calculators and find out!

    There's also the ethical dilemma of selling sentient and human level intelligent species. I mean yeah, they're dogs but they're very smart and seemingly understand and communicate quite well with literally every other animal besides humans. This is sorta technically... slavery

    I think the biggest mistake in this video is assuming arbitrarily that killing dogs is somehow automatically immoral. "Selling your soul" to turn a hundred dogs into a handful of coats? The only moral issue is the whole part where Cruella would be stealing the dogs, it's no more problematic than the various cows and other animals bred and slaughtered for meat, leather, and other products.

    Even if they can have puppies at 6 months that does not mean they can get pedigrees from a female that young. There are age rules Even in the AKC. FCI are Even better whit their rules. In nkk its max 5 litters per female, female must be over 18 months and younger than 9 years. Must be health checked and if you have 2 litters on the same female that female needs a minimum 12 months before her nexst litter. Etichal breeding and back yard breeding are totally different :)

    7:45 Objection, your Honor. You state "most veterinarians agree..." about drinking untreated water, but if that were really true, then how is it every wild animal survives? They don't have treated water. We have had dogs all our lives, and anytime we take them to the lake or on a hike, they drink the lake water, drink from streams, and have never suffered any ill effects.

    you forgot about heartworm medicine, and annual wormer needed for outdoor only dogs. And it is not recommended to breed dogs before they are 3 years old, and they should have no more than 3 litters in their lifetime. What you are suggesting is a puppy mill, and those are illegal in most countries/states England to be the first to outlaw them.

    I’m surprised that MattPat brings up 101 Dalmatians II: Patch’s London Adventure… but conveniently avoids the animated series where the Radcliffes have a classic American farm for the space and, I would guess, feed the dogs utilizing the same feed as the livestock. It’s not a perfect solution to things but certainly would make caring for the dogs more economical if you’re already bulk feeding animals on the farm.

Gloop shows gluttony. Salt shows Greed and Violet shows Pride. It’s kinda been keeping me up at night so it would be a fun theory to see on the channel. The whole reason I didn’t ask on Twitter is because I don’t ha e Twitter so yeah.

    Cruela de Vil is my all time favorite Disney Villain because you can see and understand her mindset and why she does it. I lover her style and how she views others, which is poor and puny. She may act like a stereotypical villain but she really isn't, and the new movie (which i agree could be better) just proves that.
