Full Metal Puller: Lucky, Rolly and Cadpig are preparing to join the Bark Brigade, a cadet core that all young puppies are expected to join. However, when they’re put in a team with an erratic chicken named Spot, Lucky decides to use her as a scapegoat for all the team’s failures. Now, the group must work together to pass the final inspection, less they get forced from the Bark Brigade forever, though Lucky’s comments have created a rift in the group.

Dough The Right Thing: After Cruella makes a surprise visit to the Dearly Farm, the Dalmatians realize that she left her purse behind and they take it back to her mansion.

Cultural References
Episode Title: Full Metal Pullet

This is a reference to the 1987 film entitled Full Metal Jacket, which starred Matthew Modine, Adam Baldwin and R. Lee Ermey. It was directed by Stanley Kubrick and its plot focused on a young marine as he goes through basic training and ultimately enters the Vietnam War, where he observes the effects it had on his comrades, as well as struggles to stay alive.



Analysis
Spot’s Debut

The episode ‘Full Metal Pullet’ appears to have been the intended second episode of the series, as in this episode, the Dalmatians first start to associate with Spot, in which they gain her friendship throughout the course of the episode. This is supported by the fact that Lucky, Rolly and Cadpig merely refer to Spot as “the chicken” throughout a large portion of the episode, as well as the fact that the Dalmatians are first joining the Bark Brigade in this episode. However, due to the fact that many episodes aired out of continuity, due to the series’ syndicated style of being aired, this episode was aired later than some of the other episodes and it was considered a part of the second season.
