I love this movie for many reasons but one of them is that it exists in a strange little pocket of animation history. Walt Disney was on the verge of eliminating his animation department because of the expense until technology saved the day. for this film, they used early Xerox machines to eliminate the inking process, resulting in the scratchy, pencil-drawn look of the film. in fact, the film might not have been possible without that technology, since it saved them from having to hand-draw every spot on every Dalmatian multiple times. Disney himself reportedly didn’t like the resulting aesthetic, so it’s one of the only movies ever made that looks like this.
