I decided to revamp my Tier List for Best and Worst episodes of 101 Dalmatians: the Series.  If you have never once seen 101 Dalmatians: the Series, I have complied a list of episodes that I feel are a good way to be initated into the series.  Here's what I mean by each:

Best: If you're new to this series, the "Best" episodes are the ones to start with. Due to their smart writing and clever humor, the strengths of the series are clearly visible.

For a newbie: If you're new to this show, these eps are a great way to go.

Middle: These episodes fall somewhere inbetween "Best" and "Worst". While they're not without their charms, their flaws are more notable; they won't leave a newbie begging for more, but they're harmless.

For a newbie: "Middle" episodes are up to you, but try to see a lot of the "Best" episodes first.

Worst: I would not suggest starting with these episodes; they have weak writing and poor humor. The flaws clearly stand out in these episodes.

For a newbie: Take my advice and skip these episodes for now; watch them after you are well-initated (when they will do the least harm).

DISCLAIMER: Keep in mind that these are only my opinions.  You are free to make up your own list.

The one episode that always hurts me to watch is on the Lamb... I remember watching that thinking: "How could they do that to Lucky"?

Out of all the episodes that I've rewatched, that's the one I rewatch the least. I've tried to make more sense of it, but it still hurts to see Lucky suffer like that. :(

that is a good question.

Well to be honest, I really hated Four Stories Up and really liked Mall Pups but all time favorite episodes are Leisure Lawsuit and High Price of Fame 
TwoToneDearly Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2015
I could relate as to why you don't like Four Stories Up, with Spot bashing everybody with her ending to thunderbolt
Cadpig101 Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
No it was because everybody was bashing Spot in their stories for no reason. 
TwoToneDearly Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2015
That is true and she bashed them back in her story.

Made me think of the other pups doing their stories too.

I'm generally known for my intense dislike of Disney, but I watched this series out of curiosity and grew to like it despite containing so many elements that should make me hate it. Of course what sealed the deal was Cadpig, as she's just so delightfully snarky. Lucky and Rolly have also grown on me since then and, really, I watch the show for them (which is a moot point since they're the main protagonists). Though I've only seen maybe half, not quite half of the episodes on this list due to simple limitations. YouTube really brings up only about five in their original English dub (considering there's a poster who has every episode in a full-on Russian dub) as this post such as "Love 'Em and Flea 'Em", "De-Village Elder", and that Christmas Carol parody that seems to be reposted a lot in the search. But this (I think it's) Romanian website I found via Yahoo search has a good chunk of the episodes in English. I would definitely love to see the "Making Of..." episode since I love metafiction. And I'm curious about the "My Fair Moochie" episode as well.

Ah well. If they ever release this show in its entirety on DVD at a reasonable price, I'll get it.

glad you enjoy the series ^^
SoraFan810 Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2013
Man someone needs to upload you say its your birthday to youtube!!! I'm pissed about that!
TwoToneDearly Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2013
I know He followed me home/Love em and Flea em is on youtube (since for some odd reason they won't show it and a handfull of eps from the series on Disney Junior)
SoraFan810 Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2013
I know the feeling man!
TwoToneDearly Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2013
yeah makes me sad they only rerun DeVillage Elder and refuse to show Love em and Flea em
SoraFan810 Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2013
why cant they just show the ones we wanna see?
TwoToneDearly Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2013
SoraFan810 Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2013

Didnt liked Moove it on over, Poor Cadpig, they just dont understand her, she only wanted to help. Yeah I know that sometimes she dont listen to someone she is trying to help, but I dont think its her fault
TwoToneDearly Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2012

It also reminds me of the eps where Dumpling kept trying to force Lucky into a relationship with her. The eps include Hog Tied, The life you save, and Valentines Daze
Mechenuy Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I like every episode, Only My Fair Moochie showed Cadpig in very bad light when she left Mooch, they were really so romantic and cute together :cries: . I dont remember much, but now I am rewatching every episode. I felt bad for Mooch :cries:
TwoToneDearly Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2012
yeah, Cadpig really played him

Though I watched this when I was young and quite don't remember the exact course of events... I can say that this is a great series and I'm going to watch all episodes!!!
TwoToneDearly Featured By Owner May 28, 2012
I have all the episodes too :) and it's an awesome series ^^

Love em and Flea em was an awesome ep and deserves to be on the top of the list :)
Ardhamon Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
This reminds me that I should watch the entire series all the way through.
AubArt Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I love this show :D and I totally agree with all of your opiones on the episodes :clap:
The-Toy-Chest Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2012
I would love to own this show on DVD. Any news on if Disney is planning on releasing this as a boxset? Or, in the meantime, do you know a good place I could go to watch it online? I miss it so much!!
Ardhamon Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
Youtube is your Friend. :)
The-Toy-Chest Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2012
I've looked this show up on YouTube several times in the past trying to find a definitive collection of the episodes but all I could ever turn up were a couple of the episodes and several clips. I asked here because I thought there was maybe someone who was more knowledgeable concerning any online places to watch this show and would have an answer to a site I'd maybe not come across before. Possibly the episodes of this series have been uploaded to YouTube since I last looked but I left a comment here trying to be friendly and hoping to open up discussion on good places to view the show, not get some snarky, short reply in response.
Ardhamon Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
Wasn't trying to be mean about it. But yeah, I've seen several eps of the show on Youtube and that was back in 2010. I recently saw an episode on there, as well.
The-Toy-Chest Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2012
Thanks for explaining. I was just asking hoping that perhaps I could be guided to a special site that had all the episodes. Sometimes fans will have pages dedicated to things like that.
Trey-Vore Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2012
No word yet on a official boxset.

On the other hand, you can try finding a bootleg set on
The-Toy-Chest Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2012
Okay, thanks for the info and suggestions! :)
101DalmatiansWiki Featured By Owner May 23, 2012  Student General Artist
Hey just to inform you guys, I'm download all, I repeat all episodes of this series but the total size is 10GB! and to make things worst speeds are 10-15 kbps! ETA: 1Week?! Damn. Well, if you're interested, I'll post an update regarding this... Cheers guys.
