Reasons for voting for Doggy Da Vinci: This episode fleshed out Da Vinci in a great way and made me like her even more than I already did, placing her as one of my top five favorite Dalmatians in 101 Dalmatian Street. The great pacing and touching moments also helped, and the fact that this was an episode of the Hunter arc made it that little more interesting.
P.S. I really wanted to pick Power to the Puppies, since next to Dolly, Diesel's my favorite of the 101 Dalmatian Street Dalmatians. And although I like the episode, Dante severely dragged it down for me. I hate Dante.
Yep, I share your thoughts exactly on "Doggy Da Vinci". Not a word I would change. I liked Da Vinci anyway, but I was concerned that more spotlight would reveal more character flaws, but I was pleasantly surprised.
I almost put "The Nose Job" in the place of "Power to the Puppies", but decided that the latter was more of the episode when he was revealed.
