Well, whadda ya know. Chip N Dale are finally on DVD! Chip N Dale are my favorite Disney characters and I love every animated short they are in.
Chip N Dale are chipmunks, looking for nuts (sorry, that sounded funny) and battling Donald Duck most of the time. Chip and Dale either best buds or…something else? I’m not gonna touch that topic! But anyway, This DVD contains 9 episodes that span over an hour or so. I’m not sure, but I think this is the first time Chip N Dale shorts are on DVD and I’m glad! I would like to see their shorts in a Walt Disney Treasures DVD in the future.
The episodes you get on this DVD are: Chicken in the Rough, Chip n’ Dale, Out of Scale, Two Chip and a Miss, Food for Feudin’, Working for Peanuts, Out on a Limb, Three for Breakfast, and Dragon Around.
My favorite cartoon growing up was when Chip and Dale fight with Donald over their tree being used in his miniature town. Yeah, apparently Donald doesn’t have a life and just plays with his trains all day. Kind of creepy. But then again, what do you expect from a duck. Other episodes that I like from Chip n Dale aren’t on this DVD (well one is- called “Chip N Dale”). They are all the Christmas/Winter themed episodes where they battle with Mickey Mouse, Pluto and Donald. Everything always comes back to Donald Duck though. He’s such a troublemaker! I watch those shorts in this 80’s Disney special I taped when it aired on TV and have been watching it every Xmas time. It’s a tradition and I have to watch those shorts to get in the Xmas spirit.
Chip N Dale’s characters vary from short to short. Sometimes Dale doesn’t appear to be as stupid, or doesn’t have buckteeth or a big red nose. The shorts in the later years shows them as their true selves as one short-tempered, smart chipmunk (Dale) and a stupid chipmunk (Dale). Another thing I liked about these shorts when I was growing up, was the Donald Duck theme song. When that song came on, you knew that Donald was gonna be butting’ some heads with the chipmunks. The song is catchy and I still sing that song to this day. Yeah I don’t have a life either.
But if you can’t wait for the evitable Walt Disney Treasures DVD set with all the Chip n Dale cartoons, then get the next best thing and buy this DVD. It has many classic episodes and I enjoyed watching it. I still managed to laugh at some of these shorts.
