''101 Dalmatians,'' first released in 1961, has proved to be one of the more popular Disney cartoon features -- so popular that it has never been released as a videocassette and so popular that the studio re-releases it to theaters every now and then.With ''Snow White,'' the re-release was every seven years. With ''Dalmatians,'' it is every five years or so; it was last seen in these parts in 1986.''101 Dalmatians'' is vintage Disney, and small children always take to it. Of course, they have to be very small.

DVD 101 DALMATIANS / / Walt Disney Home Video. $29.99. ....................... The cleverest of Disney's cartoon features returns to DVD on Tuesday after a 10-year absence in a two-disc special edition. It gets you smiling with the spot-marked opening credits -- and your grin never droops until "The End." In this parody-charged homage to English crime movies, the title dogs are victims and heroes in a canine self-help network that stretches from London to the far corners of the countryside.

Jane Fonda coming back to the screen after a decade-and-a-half absence in Monster-in-Law is like Brando returning from the dead to star in a Police Academy movie. Monster-in-Law isn't over-the-top: It's beneath-the-bottom. And I'm not referring to Jennifer Lopez's anatomy, although the script does, constantly. Lopez plays a virtuous Venice Beach, Calif., woman named Charlie (for Charlotte), who holds down several menial jobs while dreaming of designing dresses. Fonda plays Viola, a snooty, just-fired TV talk-show host who can't abide Charlie's engagement to her dreamboat surgeon son, Kevin (Michael Vartan)

What's black and white and red-hot?Dalmatians, the fastest-growing breed of dog in America. A relative rarity until recently, the dotted dog is now No. 19 on the American Kennel Club's list of registered breeds.During the '90s, the half-and-half hounds are expected to soar into the top 10, right up there with beagles and dachshunds.That boom has been echoing at the box office, where Disney's "101 Dalmatians" is setting re-release records. The 30-year-old animated feature is running neck-and-neck with the new summer blockbusters.

"101 Dalmatians" wants to be a great piece of pup fiction, but it finally goes to the dogs -- literally. What remains will probably keep the children from bopping each other, but most parents will begin to drift back into the real world and leave with headaches generated from worrying about the Visa card bill.That's a shame, because the greatness of the Disney product is that it transcends age and brain development: The classic Disney films were equally diverting to intelligent children or their moronic parents.

Remember those carefree days as a child when you had the world's permission to splash around in the rain? With your little raincoat and rubber galoshes, your attitude was: The bigger the puddle, the better. Now, with the latest trend in fashionable footwear, you can recapture those elementary school, happy-go-lucky days. Or, even better, channel Gene Kelly and Debbie Reynolds. Rain boots are in. And this time, they're for grown-ups. "They're really popular right now," said Brooke Landau, vice president of sales for Esprit Footwear and Accessories, which is selling a number of eye-catching rain boots for about $40 to $50 at retailers such as Nine West and department stores.

"102 Dalmatians" is one too many. Dalmatians movies, that is. The original "101 Dalmatians" was quite the charmer; you always knew dogs could talk to each other, right? And the 1996 live-action version gave the great Glenn Close a role she was born to play: Cruella De Vil, that evil millionairess with a Dalmatian-coat fixation. But this time around, most of the Dalmatian magic is gone; it's telling that the biggest crowd-pleaser of "102 Dalmatians" isn't a dog at all, but a parrot named Waddlesworth who thinks he's a dog (a Rottweiler, at that)

A Woodstock couple last night cleared the first hurdle to obtaining permission to operate a kennel for dalmatians on their property.The five-member Howard County Planning Board unanimously recommended approval for a 20-dog kennel on 10 acres owned by Stephen D. and Beth E. Winick in the 10300 block of Cavey Lane.The panel endorsed the project despite opposition from a handful of neighbors who argued that the kennel would be a nuisance and lower property values in the Woodstock Ridge Estates community.

"I Capture the Castle," a 50-year-old novel long out of print in this country, is quietly capturing hearts this summer.Written by Dodie Smith -- now remembered, to the extent that she is remembered at all, as the author of "101 Dalmatians" -- "I Capture the Castle" (a Wyatt Book for St. Martin's Press, $23.95) was reissued this spring with little fanfare.Yet Entertainment Weekly gave it a rare A-plus. Ecstatic reviews also appeared in the Los Angeles Times, the Orlando Sentinel and the Weekly Standard, which called it "one of the best small romantic novels ever written much more fun than the reader has any right to expect."
