Pongo was a handsome Dalmatian. He owns Roger Radcliff, a nice young bachelor musician who was gentle, obedient and unusually intelligent. In fact, Pongo thinks at times he is almost canine. They live in a nice little house near regents Park in London, but it has become very lonely for both of them.
Pongo My story begins in London, not so very long ago. Yet so much has happened since then, that it seems like an eternity. At that time I lived with my pet in a bachelor flat just off Regents Park. It was a beautiful spring day, a tedious time of the year for bachelors. Oh… that’s my pet, Roger. Roger Radcliff, a musician of sorts. Ha-ha. No, no, I’m the one with spots. My name’s Pongo. As far as I could see the old notion that “a bachelor’s life was so glamorous and carefree” was all nonsense. It was downright dull sighs It was plain to see that my old pet needed someone. If it were left up to Roger, we’d be bachelors forever. He was married to his work, writing songs. Songs about romance… of all things, something he knew absolutely nothing about Roger’s playing piano Oh, he’s intelligent enough as humans so. And I think you could say, Roger is a rather handsome animal in his way. I could see no reason why my pet didn’t deserve an attractive mate, but al least I was determinated to do my best. Of course, dogs are a pretty poor judge of human beauty, but I had a rough idea of what to look for He’s looking out from the window spotting the candidates We see an Afghan Hmm! Unusual breed chuckles Very unusual. Hmm! Oh, surely not. Well now, what have we here? Hmm. Well, a little… too short coupled. Nope! I say! Well, I do say! Now there’s a fancy breed. Hmm. Perhaps a little too fancy. Yes, much too fancy. Oh! Too old. Too young. It was a problem, a real problem. Well, now that’s a bit more like it! It’s a Dalmatian The most beautiful creature on four legs! Now if only the girl… Well! She’s very lovely too! It was almost too good to be true. I’d never find another pair like that, not if I looked for a hundred years. Ah, they’re heading for the park. A perfect meeting place… if I can only arrange it. Uh-oh, but Roger never stopped work ‘til after 5:00. That could be too late He changes the time and barks attracting Roger’s attention .
Roger Looking the clock After 5:00 already. Fancy that. All right Pongo, all right boy. Pongo’s barking and yipping Pongo boy! Take it easy! What’s all the hurry? Pongo boy, slow down.
Pongo I was afraid we’d missed them. Perhaps they passed on by the park. Then suddenly… I spotted them. It was a perfect situation if I planned it right. I couldn’t depend on Roger. I knew what he’d do. He’d settle on the grass, puff his pipe and that would be it. No, it was all up to me. Well as they pass, Anita and Perdita take notice of them At first I had no particular plan just anything to attract attention. You know stir things up a bit He takes off Roger’s hat .
Roger Pongo, you silly old thing! C’mon! Let’s have it, boy. Pongo! yipping Pongo! He leaves the hat on the bench where Anita’s seated .
Pongo For a while it seemed to work. At least they had seen one another. Things were going along first-rate. But for some strange reason they left!
Roger C’mon, you old renegade. We’re going home.
Pongo But I wasn’t giving up. I was determinated that somehow they just had to meet.
Roger Oh!
Anita Ohhh!
Roger I beg your pardon. Please, excuse me.
Anita I must say, what on earth!
Roger Oh dear!
Anita Oh really! Good heavens!
Roger Oooh!
Anita Ahh! Ahh! Perdita tries to stop them and she breaks Anita’s dress. The pair end up toppling into a pond Oh, oh. Oh my new spring suit and my new hat!
Roger Ah, ah… I’m terribly sorry. Please, let me help you I’m so sorry. I don’t know what’s come over him. I’m so sorry. He’s never acted this way before.
Anita Oh, never mind! Never mind! Please, just go away. You’ve done enough. Please? Oh! she takes her handkerchief that is wet .
Roger Oh, I say. Here, take mine it’s wet too
Anita Oh! they laugh. For the very first time Perdita looks to Pongo
In a few weeks there was a double wedding for Pongo and Perdita, Roger and Anita, and the dogs settled down to a life of pleasant domesticity with their happy pets.
Priest Wilt thou love her, comfort her, honour and keep her in sickness and in health; and forsaking all others keep thee only unto her so long as ye both shall live?
Roger I will.
Pongo For the first six months or so we lived in a small house near the park, a modest little place but just right for two couples who were just starting out. In the window we see Perdita and Pongo resting. She sighs happily Perdita, darling, are you all right?
Perdita chuckles Oh, of course, dear. After all, dogs were having puppies long before our time.
Pongo He chuckles happily Oh, that’s Nanny, a wonderful cook and housekeeper. She’s such a kind understanding soul. You know, at times she seems almost canine.
Anita Roger, dear, tea time! Tea time!
Roger Still playing piano Be down in a minute. Ta-tum-ti-ta-tum whistling Do you like my new song.
Anita Ta-tum-ti-ta-tum. Such clever lyrics.
Roger Ho ho! Chuckles Melody first, my dear. And then the lyrics, hm? car horn
Perdita Oh, Pongo… it’s her. It’s that devil woman A car stops in front of the house
Roger Oh, must be Cruella, your dearly devoted old schoolmate, Cruella de Vil. That’s it! Cruella de Vil Cruella de Vil if she doesn't scare you no evil thing will
Anita Oh Roger To see her is to take a sudden chill
Anita Oh
Cruella
Cruella she's like a spider waiting for the... kill
Anita Roger, she'll hear you Look out for Cruella de Vil
Anita Let her in, Nanny.
Cruella Anita, darling!
Anita How are you?
Cruella Miserable as usual. Perfectly wretched! Where are they? Where are they? For heaven sakes, where are they?
Anita Who, Cruella?
Cruella The puppies! in loud rude voice The puppies! Not time for games. Where are the little brutes?
Anita Oh, it’ll be al least three weeks. No rushing these things, you know.
Cruella chuckles Anita, you’re such a wit. Here, dog, here. Here dog Pongo growls
Anita Cruella, isn’t that a new fur coat?
Cruella Oh, my only true love, darling. I live for furs. I worship furs! Aaaah…. After all, is there a woman in all this wretched world who doesn’t?
Anita Oh, I’d like a nice fur but there are many other things…
Cruella Sweet, simple Anita chuckles I know, I know! This horrid little house is your dreamed castle. Ha, ha, ha! And poor Roger is your bold and fearless Sir Galahad! Ha ha ha!
Anita Oh Cruella!
Cruella Then of course you have your little spotted friends. Oh yes, I must say… such a perfectly beautiful coats.
Anita Won’t you have some tea?
Cruella I’ve got to run. Let me know when the puppies arrive. You will, won’t you dear?
Anita Yes Cruella.
Cruella Don’t forget, it’s a promise. See you in three weeks. Cheerio, cheerio darling she slams the door
Anita Oooh!
Roger At first you think
Cruella is a devil
but after time
has worn away the shock
you come to realize
you've seen
her kind of eyes
watching you
from underneath a rock
Anita You're no help

this vampire bat
this inhuman beast
she ought to be locked up
and never released
the world was such
a wholesome place until
Cruella
Cruella de Vil
Anita They kiss Oh Roger, you are an idiot! They laugh
In the kitchen.
Pongo Perdy?
Perdita That’s witch! That devil woman. She wants our puppies. That’s all she’s after.
Pongo Oh, don’t worry, Perdy. They’re on to her. Nothing’s going to happen to our puppies.
Perdita What does she want with them? She can’t possibly love them. Oh Pongo crying I was so happy at first, but now I--- Oh, I--- I wish we weren’t having any.
A raining night. Perdita’s going to have her puppies. She’s been helped by Anita and Nanny while Pongo and his pet waits patiently in the next room.
Pongo Poor Perdita. Of course she had no choice. The puppies arrived right on schedule one wild and stormy night in October.
Roger Ooh! Steady, boy. He’s puffing his pipe and Pongo licks his hand
Nanny The puppies are here! shouting Oh--- the puppies are here!
Roger H-H-How many?
Nanny Eight.

Roger Oh, pongo. It’s just one of those things. And yet? And yet I wonder… he tries to resuscitate him and he does! Look Pongo! Anita! Nanny! Fifteen! We still have fifteen!
Anita Oh Roger, he’s all right! Thank heaven!

Nanny They’re not mongrels! They’ll get their spots. Just wait and see.
Anita That’s right. They’ll have their spots in a few weeks.
Cruella Oh, well, in that case I’ll take them all. The whole litter. Just name your price, dear
Anita I’m afraid we can’t give them up. Poor Perdita. She’d be heartbroken.
Cruella Anita, don’t be ridiculous. You can’t afford to keep them. You can scarcely feed yourselves.
Anita I’m sure we’ll get along.
Cruella Chuckling Yes, I know! I know! Roger’s… Roger’s songs! laughing Enough of this nonsense I’ll pay you twice what they’re worth. I’m being more than generous. Blast this pen. Blast this wretched, wretched pen! she puts ink spots in Roger and Pongo who are so furious When can the puppies leave their mother? Two weeks? Three weeks?
Roger Never.
Cruella What?
Roger We’re n-n-not selling the puppies. Not a single one. D-do you understand?
Cruella chuckling Anita, is he serious? I really don’t know Roger.
Anita Well, Cruella, he---
Cruella Surely he must be joking!
Roger No, no, no. I-I-I-I mean it. You’re not getting one. N-n-not one. And that’s--- final! Pongo nods his head

Anita embracing Roger Oh Roger! You were magnificent, darling!
Nanny Oh he was a bloomin’ hero, ma’am. Indeed he was. A bloomin’ hero!
Pongo he runs to tell Perdita the good news Perdy? Perdy darling? Perdy, we’re keeping the puppies every single one of them. My ol’ pet Roger, he told that devil woman off. He told her off, Perdy. She’s gone darling, she’s gone for good.

Anita Oh, Roger. What’ll we do? What’ll we do?

Pongo Darling, it’s the very fastest way to send news. If our puppies are anywhere in the city, the London dogs will know. We’ll send the word tonight, when our pets take us for a walk in the park.
In the park, Pongo barks as loud as he can. He does to north, south, east and west.
Perdita There’s no one out tonight. I’m afraid it’s too cold.
Pongo We’ve got to keep trying, Perdy he continues barking and someone answer him Perdy, we’re in luck! It’s the Great Dane at Hampstead.

Captain Any news Colonel?
Colonel No. Not a blast thing. They’re lost or captured, or something or other. Who knows what.
Tibs Colonel, here comes a car.
Colonel Oh, come now, Tibs. Don’t be ridiculous. They wouldn’t be driving.

Tibs Yes sir!
Colonel Take over, Captain.
Captain Righto, sir.
Hell Hall. Cruella’s arrived.
TV I’m sorry Mr. Simpkin. The answer is no, no, no. Six down, four to go.
Cruella I’ve got no time to argue. It’s got to be done tonight.
TV … it must be a yes or no question, Inspector?
Cruella Do you understand? Tonight!
Horace But they ain’t big enough.
Jasper You couldn’t get half a dozen coats out of the whole caboodle.
Tibs Coats! Dog-skin coats?
Cruella We’ll settle for half a dozen! We can’t wait! The police are everywhere. I want the job done tonight!
Horace How’re we gonna do it?
Cruella Any way you like. Poison them, drown them, bash them in the head. You got any chloroform?
Jasper Not a drop.
Horace And no ether “ee-ther”
Jasper Eye-ther.
Cruella I don’t care how you kill the beasts, but do it… and do it now!
Jasper Aw, please, miss. Have pity. Can we see the rest of the show first?
Horace We want to see “What’s my crime?”
Cruella Now, listen, you idiots! I’ll be back in the morning and the job better be done or I’ll… I’ll call the police! Do you understand?
