The coat of Cruella De Vil

101 Golden Retrievers?

MMDE: Cruella De Vil wore a white coat with black dots

Current: Cruella De Vil wore a yellow coat

Here's the second Mandela Effect relating to Disney's 1961 animated classic "101 Dalmatians". Whilst the other one is concerned with how you spell Cruella's name, this one is about the coat she wore.

Many are remembering the coat being the same as the dalmatians, that is black with white polka dots, yet today it's seen as an enlarged yellow mass of fur.

This idea is reinforced by the sole premise of the story - Cruella wants the dalmatians in order to turn them into fur coats. Those experiencing this Mandela Effect are saying the coat being yellow makes no sense any more.

1996 live-action remake

When GlennClose played Cruella in the live-action remake, she wore a large red coat. The storyline there is emphasised more by bringing in a new character, Mr. Skinner, specifically to remove the coats of the dalmatians.
