Cruella DeVille is now Cruella Devil

This is a Mandela Effect for sure. Just like most people I speak to, I’ve always known the antagonist in 101 Dalmatians to be called Cruella DeVille. but according to official sources, her name is Cruella De Vil or Cruella Devil and it’s apparently ALWAYS been that way. I first heard about this Mandela Effect a couple of months ago and Cruella De Vil still doesn’t sound right to me. What do you think?

I am pretty sure that most of us would have noticed if her surname spelt the word ‘Devil’. That is something people are bound to remember and I am certain it is something I wouldn’t have overlook. In fact, I can clearly remember as a child I was once considering Cruella’s surname and thinking to myself that maybe it was French for ‘The Vile’ i.e Cruella The Vile because she was such a horrible women. Now obviously I wouldn’t have made that connection in my thinking if her name was Cruella De Vil. I wouldn’t have made that assumption as a child.

The very first time I saw her surname was spelt ‘De Vil’ today I was shocked and convinced I knew better. I honestly thought that this single change was so obvious that it would convince everyone that something very strange is happening to this world we live in. I thought, ‘we’ve got you now’ there is no way people are going to buy this, everyone knows it’s Cruella DeVille.

This example of the Mandela Effect is just one out of an ever growing list of others. Unfortunately, only some people are experiencing it and how can we possibly convince someone that something used to be different when we have no evidence to back it up. Of course, the people who are not experiencing it, their first argument will always be that we are remembering wrong.

The good news is, this is one of the few Mandela Effects examples that has a lot of people still using the surname ‘DeVille’ when referencing the movie or the character. Just do a quick Google image search to see what I mean.

I decided to build this website because I have been experiencing the Mandela Effect for some time now and it’s getting more and more disturbing. I’ve noticed that I am not alone, many other people have the same memories as me so I came to the conclusion that we need somewhere that lists every Mandela Effect.

  1. DeVille is her name . Wow. This is crazy stuff. I am convinced it is because we are so near end times. If you remember God gave the Devil the earth for 1000 years this time is almost up.. He is afraid and knows times up so he is fighting back.
