Chip ‘n” Dale were created in 1943 by The Walt Disney Company. Their names are actually a pun on the name of the 18th-century cabinet maker and furniture designer Thomas Chippendale. That idea was suggested by Bill “Tex” Henson, a story artist at the studio. Their first appearance however was in Private Pluto in 1943 but their office appearance was in 1947.Chip ‘n’ Dale also had their own comic book title. As well as numerous appearances on the Mickey Mouse Club.
For most of their adventures they are usually paired with Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and Pluto. But have played characters in most of the holiday specials as well as Duck Tales plus many more before landing the lead role on Chip ‘n’ Dale: Rescue Rangers in which they played detectives.
The two also appeared in several video games such as, the Rescue Rangers spin-off video game that was produced for the Nintendo Entertainment System by Capcom in 1990. And in 1993 they came out with “Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers: The Adventure in Nimnul’s Castle” a DOS game produced by Hi-Tech Expressions, Inc. Also Mickey’s ToonTown and Kingdom Hearts.
It should be noted that unlike other versions of these characters, the series will be non-verbal which is a little bit of a throwback to some of their original cartoons. Either way it’s an opportunity for Disney+ to introduce the pair to a whole new generation as well as continue the nostalgia factor for many parents who will no doubt be watching, even if they don’t want to.
