James’ Shamelessly Nostalgic A-Z Of Cartoon Characters That He Liked As A Child – Part 3: Chip

James Proclaims (6)

It’s the third day of the A-Z Blogging Challenge 2018, and, having dispatched the letters ‘A’ and ‘B’ with ease, let us see what I can do with ‘C’

C

‘C’ is for Chip

Chip ‘n’ Dale were cartoon chipmunks, but not the ones who sang with Alvin. They were the ones who annoyed Donald Duck in classic Disney cartoons.  They were revamped in 1989’s Chip ‘n’ Dale Rescue Rangers. In this show they were given a team and an awesome theme tune and they tackled crime and helped people. I’m not sure why anyone thought this was a good idea. It doesn’t sound like a good idea. And it wasn’t a good idea.

It was an AWESOME idea!

Crime fighting chipmunks? How cool is that?

Unlike in their original incarnations as duck-botherers, during which time they were largely interchangeable, in this series Chip and Dale had distinct characteristics from each other. Chip was very much the adventurous Indiana-Jones-esque leader of the Rescue Rangers and Dale was more comic relief in the main. It was all entertaining, though ultimately forgettable stuff for the most part. I can’t ever forget that theme tune though…

    Maybe you were in a different television region to me and i’m guessing next generation too. I didn’t meet the (guessing original) presentation of the Chipmunks until early 2000s when a friend passed on a VHS and then soon after they were on a satellite kids cartoon channel when they had that so my littl’uns liked it a bit. I don’t think I ever saw the duck bothering chirpers’ on any Donald Duck deliveries but we can’t see it all can we 🙂 Enjoying my catch-up visit so far 🙂 Cheers 😀
