350H: Story Sound Bites

I am searching for the title of a children’s book published in the 1990s that had push buttons (powered by a battery).  There were story sound bites on each button.
There was a female villain who said “I get what I want.”

I recall cartoon illustrations. Similar to The Magic Schoolbus type of illustrations maybe? … In the boys’ memory, the book was 101 Dalmations. We did have that push-button book, too; but that wasn’t it. Robert was so sure it was the Cruella DeVille button, that he looked it up (https://disney.fandom.com/wiki/101_Dalmatians_(Golden_Sound_Story)), but her button is a car engine. And I remember enough to recall it wasn’t a Disney movie/book. It was … I think a little White girl. On a farm? The villain was a White woman, too, similar to Cruella DeVille.

I searched your archives without luck.

    I don’t know exactly, but I have a lead: probably one of the “Golden Sound Story” books. Some, but not all of them, were Disney- or superhero-themed, so there’s plenty of room for villains. Maybe worth looking through eBay?

    Disney’s lesser-known The Rescuers has a little girl named Penny who’s kept prisoner in Louisiana by a female villainess called Madame Medusa. They’re both white. The film came out in the late 70s but I think it was re-released in the late 80s/early 90s because Disney released a sequel, The Rescuers Down Under, in 1990. I saw both films around about then. I am pretty sure I have seen a book-of-the-film picture book, so there could easily have been a sound version.
