Prod. 2110 (101 Dalmatians) - Seq.016 Final Escape
And as all the action sequences, this one is directed by Woolie Reitherman, laid out by Basil Davidovich.
The animation staff includes John Lounsbery, Ted Berman, Blaine Gibson, Bill Keil, Fred Kopietz, Ambi Paliwoda, Milt Kahl, Hal King, Bob McCrea, Frank Thomas, Don Lusk, Julius Svendsen, Art Stevens, Bob Youngquist, Eric Cleworth and Cliff Nordberg (dogs), Marc Davis (Cruella), John Sibley and again Cliff Nordberg (Baduns), Bill Keil again (truck driver), with Dan MacManus and Dick Lucas taking care of the live-action model cars.
Of course, the scene to look out for is Milt Kahl's sc. 39: Pongo rolling in soot. It was reportedly the most troublesome scene that Milt had ever encountered, and I should think he didn't mind the result when he was done. Try THAT in CG!
