Chip ‘n’ Dale trivia from D23 - November 5, 2013 by Ducky

Chip and Dale got their start as unbilled co-stars in a 1943 cartoon called Private Pluto.


Between 1943 through 1956 Chip and Dale appeared in 23 cartoon shorts. However, they are probably best known for their films with Donald Duck. Their first appearance with Donald was in a 1947 Donald Duck cartoon, called Chip an’ Dale.

Chip ‘n’ Dale on Mickey Mouse Clubhouse - May 23, 2012 by Ducky

Golly, Dale…

Chip ‘n’ Dale have been making appearances on Mickey Mouse Clubhouse with voices similar to what we heard on Chip ‘n’ Dale Rescue Rangers.  For a while after Rescue Rangers was taken off the air, Disney used Tress MacNeille for both Chip and Dale in TV appearances so they would sound more like “classic” Chip ‘n’ Dale (e.g., House of Mouse). Disney has taken a different approach with Mickey Mouse Clubhouse because Corey Burton has been “reinstated” as Dale, causing the duo to sound a lot more like they did on Rescue Rangers. And fans of Gadget should notice that Tress is also providing the voice of Daisy Duck, who tends to use the word “golly” a lot, which makes for even more CDRR nostalgia
