Ok, I’m calling out to all my ’90s Disney family out there! Chances are the moment you read anything “Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers” your mind goes to the catchy song… “Ch-ch-ch-Chip ‘n Dale’s Rescue Rangers, Ch-ch-ch-Chip ‘n Dale, When there’s danger.” Well now, we get to relive our childhood as a new generation meets Chip ‘n Dale as the Rescue Rangers!
Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers was an animated television series produced by Disney Television Animation (formerly Walt Disney Television Animation). The series premiered on The Disney Channel 1989 – 1990. The series was filled with Disney’s beloved chipmunks, Chip and Dale, working as a detective agency called “Rescue Rangers”. A few best friends joined their adventure-seeking crew including Gadget Hackwrench, Monterey Jack, and Zipper. No good guys can be without arch-villains including the Mafia-style cat “Fat Cat” and mad scientist “Norton Nimnul.”
Now, Walt Disney Studios has announced they are releasing a “comeback” noting, “Rescuing the world takes a pair. A comeback 30 years in the making, the hybrid live-action/CG animated action-comedy catches up with the former Disney Afternoon television stars in modern-day Los Angeles.”
The film description includes: In “Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers,” Chip and Dale are living amongst cartoons and humans in modern-day Los Angeles, but their lives are quite different now. It has been decades since their successful television series was canceled, and Chip (voice of Mulaney) has succumbed to a life of suburban domesticity as an insurance salesman. Dale (voice of Sandberg), meanwhile, has had CGI surgery and works the nostalgia convention circuit, desperate to relive his glory days. When a former castmate mysteriously disappears, Chip and Dale must repair their broken friendship and take on their Rescue Rangers detective personas once again to save their friend’s life.
The original Disney+ film, Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers has a huge list of stars including John Mulaney as Chip, Andy Samberg as Dale, and KiKi Layne. Also joining the cast are Will Arnett, Eric Bana, Flula Borg, Dennis Haysbert, Keegan-Michael Key, Tress MacNeille, Tim Robinson, Seth Rogen, J.K. Simmons, Chris Parnell.
