Ever wonder what Hogwarts houses 101 Dalmatians characters fall into?

101 Dalmatians is one of those dog movie franchises that often gets overlooked when it comes to considerations of Disney greatness. And 101 Dalmatians characters provided some of the best songs in animated movie history.

But it contains possibly the most iconic Disney villain ever in Cruella De Vil, and a bunch of other enjoyable characters as well.

Screen Rant decided to sort the franchise’s characters into Hogwarts houses, since that’s a fun type of personality testing.

They were only looking at the original 1961 animated film, not counting the rest of the 101 Dalmatians franchise: Dodie Smith’s novels The Hundred and One Dalmatians and The Starlight Barking, the live-action movies 101 Dalmatians and 102 Dalmatians, the animated sequel 101 Dalmatians 2: Patch’s London Adventure, or the animated TV series 101 Dalmatians: The Animated Series and 101 Dalmatian Street.  (Irriatingly, none of these various components mesh perfectly with each other. The Marvel Cinematic Universe has spoiled us.)

Cruella is, of course, a Slytherin: Charming at first impression, but ultimately calculating and self-centered. Her dim-witted henchmen Jasper and Horace Baddun are also Slytherins, though generally unsuccessful examples.

Cruella will be played by Emma Stone (The Help, Zombieland, La La Land) in the upcoming prequel film.

Of the three main puppies, Lucky is a Gryffindor and Patch a Ravenclaw, as Lucky takes command of the escape and Patch provides more of the brains and spunk of defending the pack against the Badduns. Their sister Cadpig was not mentioned on Screen Rant’s list, but she would likely be a Ravenclaw/Hufflepuff mix.

Pongo is seen as a Ravenclaw, able to organize a long-distance rescue mission via the Twilight Barking, and his generally responsible nature. Perdita is a Gryffindor, taking an instant dislike to Cruella. Gryffindor and Slytherin traits can co-exist in the same person’s nature, but often tend to repel each other for some reason.

Roger and Anita are seen as Hufflepuffs, which fits – what other kind of personality would open up their home to an ocean of dogs, much less uproot their lives and move from London to the countryside in order to erase the prior wrongs done at the De Vil manor? Also, throughout the film they are generally depicted as placid and level-headed, if a bit dreamy (Roger is a composer, after all – part of the creative temperament keeps one’s head in the clouds.)

These rankings of 101 Dalmatians characters seem on-point for the most part, though we wish Screen Rant would have considered more of the franchise’s elements in creating their list. But what about you, do you think they’re sorted into the right Hogwarts houses?
