    "Every Little Crooked Nanny" and "Cone Head" were both superb episodes of "101 Dalmatians". These two episodes are both very special to me. The episode aired on my birthday.

    In "Every Little Crooked Nanny", it's Spring and time for some Spring cleaning, that means its time to clean the Dearly's home and get rid of Cruella's security cameras. Anita's making something for her cows, but Cruella overhears this and misinterprets thinking that she's plotting something for a couple of royalties. Cruella decides to let Horace and Jasper trick Nanny out of the house and get a makeover so that she can take her place posing as a sister of hers. I must admit, while Cruella is amongst my least favorite characters, her plan was very well thought out. Cruella also reveals that she's really good at calling for quick service. I especially loved the four guys who worked in those services and said their marching grunts; they're really funny to listen to. I would have liked the episode a little better if the pups had larger speaking roles. While Cadpig does have a few memorable lines, the main pups don't really say much in this episode. That's the episode's only weak point, but other than that, the whole thing is pretty entertaining to watch.

    "Cone Head", I personally think is the better of the two. Lucky shows off for Mooch by jumping off a high tree branch into Hiccup Hole. He gets injured as a large branch lands on his head. Dr. Whittaker stitched him up and gave him a cone to wear for a few days. He was being forced to wear the cone. This was very miserable for poor Lucky since he had to deal with Mooch poking fun at him so much. It was in some ways amusing the many attempts Rolly and Cadpig helped him hide the cone. I don't know why Spot decided to play soft jazz music each time he walked out. The first time may be understandable since Cadpig said that style is 99% attitude; I'm not sure about the second and third times (maybe just for fun?). Of course, this episode wasn't all to feel sorry for Lucky. The writers cleverly plotted this episode by adding a B story: Roger accidently gives himself a bald spot and does everything he can to cover it up. This episode, again, has a lot of memorable quotes (most of which Cadpig deserves credit for). Mooch, in the end, gets what he deserves for insulting Lucky so much.

    Overall, these were both superb episodes. I personally think "Cone Head" was the better of the two. This episode is very special to me since it originally aired on my birthday. It makes me feel even better the fact that one of the two is a strong vehicle for Lucky. This is definately one of the greatest birthday presents I have ever recieved!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • At the end of "Cone Head", Cadpig is not one to laugh at Lucky having to wear the cone, considering she was wearing one at the end of "Easy on the Lies".

    • Lucky kept bumping into things while he was "being the cone", yet we could clearly see his eyes showing from his makeover.

  • QUOTES (12)

    • Cadpig: (to Rolly and Spot) Now, remember, no matter how bad it looks, pretend you don't notice it. Hey, Luck! How's it goin'?
      Spot: Lookin' good!
      Rolly: Yeah, I didn't even notice your giant, nerdy, plastic cone! (Cadpig steps on his paw) Ow! What? What?

    • Cadpig: Pardon me, but is there any chance that I can make a tiny plea for sanity? (Lucky and Mooch ignore Cadpig and jump off the tree branch.) I didn't think so.

    • (Lucky's friends had just pulled off his cone.)
      Lucky: At last! Freedom! Now I can challenge Mooch on equal footing.
      Cadpig: And how is your head supposed to heal? Magic?

    • Cadpig: Remember, style is 99% attitude and 1% revolving credit. So let's see you sell it, buddy!

    • Spot: What's so bad about a cone?
      Rolly: It's only the single most embarrasing, humiliating, and totally uncool thing ever invented by veteranarian medicine.

    • Lucky: Now's our chance to expose her.
      Cadpig: Normally, I'm against unprovoked violence, but in this case...TRASH HER!

    • Rolly: Hey, she smells awfully familiar. She smells like a cross between o'de calone and old gym socks.

    • Jasper: Tell her what she's won, Hortence.
      Horace: A magic carpet to a more beautiful you, including a complete makeover: hair-do, manicure, leg-waxing, and each and every toe painted with scenes from cartoon shows.

    • Nanny: What just happened here?
      Anita: Well, as near as I can tell, Cruella just wanted to meet our cows.
      Roger: I will never figure that woman out.

    • Roger: Is it my imagination or is that woman wearing our drapes?

    • Cadpig: Ah, spring, a season of renewal. The flowers are blooming, the birds are chirping, Nanny is ridding the house of Cruella's electronic surveillance devices.

    • (Lucky has just finished making a dive into the watering hole)
      Lucky: What did I tell ya? Piece of c...(a large branch falls on his head)...uggghh...
      Rolly: "Piece of cugh?" What kind of a cake is that?

  • NOTES (1)

    • This is the second time Nanny gets tricked out of her job and gets replaced by Cruella. The first time was "Southern Fried Cruella".
