Synopsis by Mark Deming
Everyone's favorite dalmatians learn about the importance of Christmas in this holiday-themed animated adventure. The eternally black-hearted Cruella De Ville decides to give Anita her pink slip on the afternoon of December 24. While this puts a damper on her festive mood, she and Roger try to enjoy the holiday, even though they can no longer afford the presents they were planning to buy. Meanwhile, Cruella has a troubled sleep as she is visited by three spirits that show her memories of Christmas past, events of Christmas present, and a prophesy of Christmases yet to come. Will the spirits lead Cruella to change her ways? And will Roger, Anita, and the multitude of dalmatians be able to keep the holiday spirit alive without gifts? This direct-to-video release was adapted from episodes of Disney's 101 Dalmatians animated television series.
