Patch's Spotted Adventures (sometimes known as 101 Dalmatians: Patch's Spotted Adventures) is an American computer-animated children's television series based on the 1961 film, One Hundred and One Dalmatians, which in turn is based on Dodie Smith's novel, The Hundred and One Dalmatians. It is the second television series to be based on One Hundred and One Dalmatians, with 101 Dalmatians: The Series being the first and 101 Dalmatian Street being the third.

The series premiered on September 9, 2008 and concluded on July 29, 2009.

Premise

The series follows the titular Dalmatian puppy, Patch, as he explores the wide world outside the Dalmatian Plantation where he and his family now live. Joining him on his adventures are his siblings, corpulent Rolly, curious Freckles and TV addict Lucky. Occasionally, the puppies are often accompanied by their parents, Pongo and Perdita. Cruella De Vil serves as the main villain as usual, but due to the more light-hearted tone of the series, her personality is toned down to her trying to kidnap the puppies so she can sell them and earn money.

The series is notable for being much closer to the original 1961 film than the 1996 remake and 101 Dalmatians: The Series, in which it takes place in the same timeline as the aforementioned movie, Cadpig is absent, the characters have their original designs (albeit converted to CGI) and Roger and Anita's surnames are "Radcliffe" instead of "Dearly".

Trivia

  • The reason Cruella De Vil's personality was toned down for this series is because her character from the original film was too scary to be kept in a Playhouse Disney show.
  • Patch, being voiced by E.G. Daily, sounds like Tommy Pickles from Rugrats or Buttercup from The Powerpuff Girls with a British accent.
  • As with most Playhouse Disney shows, Patch often talks to and interacts with the viewer.
