In 101 Dalmatians, when Jasper is talking on the phone to Cruella after they have stolen the puppies, Horace is holding a newspaper. Above the dognapping headline on the front page is “CARLSEN SPEAKS”, and a picture of a capsized ship. Just before this, when Cruella is reading the newspapers herself, we can see the line “Truth of the Flying Enterprise saga: Page 6” just under it. This headline helps us to date the story, since the Carlsen in question is Henrik Kurt Carlsen, captain of the freighter Flying Enterprise, which sank after a prolonged struggle in the Atlantic. This was the media event of the year in 1952.
