another pair of under-appreciated and barely known Dalmatians of the "101" franchise--the Vandercreams, Aunt Coco and Uncle Beamer. :3
They're relatives of the Dearly Dalmatians and are seen in the series episode, "Lucky to Be Alone," when Lucky gets fed up with being one in 99, so he goes to visit his aunt and uncle to be by himself.
No one really knows whether the Vandercreams are related to Pongo or Perdita. Beamer's black ears suggest they're from Pongo's side, but the fact that Perdita was the one to suggest that Lucky spend some time with them in the first place, and as Lucky got on a truck to leave Pongo asked her, "Are you sure this is going to work?" and she replied, "If I know the Vandercreams."
Bottom line, my theory is that they're from Perdita's side, though no one's sure exactly how.
They're kind of snotty, but they mean well.
As with Disney's "Gargoyles" I used to stay up until 4/5am (or train myself to wake up around that time) just to tape the series. When I found out the episode featuring these two (as well as Pongo and Perdita) was on, of course I ran right to my TV and plopped in a VHS tape in record time. The series doesn't show Pongo and Perdy often and as obsessed as I am with the Dalmatians, it was really exciting to see a relative of the Dearly Dalmatians outside of the 101/102 circle. :3
