Indeed, his colleagues criticized him as he worked; Frank Thomas felt that the head was too skull-like, while Milt Kahl demanded to know why Davis had to "make her feet so damn big".
In addition to the voice of Betty Lou Gerson, the animation was inspired by Tallulah Bankhead, Bette Davis in All About Eve and Rosalind Russel in Auntie Mame.
Unlike previous Disney villainesses such as the Evil Queen, Lady Tremaine, the Queen of Hearts, Aunt Sarah, and Maleficent, Cruella is not a schemer nor does she have any powers.
Instead, she acts purely on impulse and is thus prone to reckless behavior, particularly tearing through the snowy landscape in her car.
Betty Lou Gerson, who had previously provided her voice as the narrator of the opening scenes of Cinderella, was inspired by Tallulah Bankhead when voicing Cruella De Vil.
This is interesting as it is said that Dodie Smith originally conceived the character as an evil parody of Bankhead.
Cruella De Vil is a featured article, which means it has been identified as one of the best articles produced by the Disney Wiki community.

When Kahl was given the chance to animate his own flamboyant villainess, Madame Medusa in The Rescuers, he swore to Davis that he would "blow your Cruella off the screen".
Davis commented that the vocal performance suggested that "this character was bigger than life, high in energy, and, like a shark, always moving".
Marc Davis, the sole animator of Cruella in all her scenes in 101 Dalmatians, was initially unsure that Cruella would suit the film, worrying that the character was too comic.
A fan letter to Kahl from a young Andreas Deja mistakenly referring to him as Cruella's animator received the reply: "Thank you for all your compliments, but I did not animate Cruella De Vil.
She was animated by my friend Marc Davis and, unlike Medusa, was based on live-action." In the live-action remake, Glenn Close portrayed the role of Cruella De Vil and unlike in the animated film, the live-action film gives Cruella the reason why she wanted to make a fur coat out of puppies: because their fur wouldn't be as soft as full grown dogs.
