Chip ‘N Dale Rescue Rangers (Disney, 1989)
Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers was a Disney produced animated TV series. Chip and Dale premiered their very own series with a two-hour movie
special that was later broken into five parts in order to air on TV. The original series premiered with an episode entitled “Catteries Not Included,” on August 27, 1988. Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers went into national syndication on September 18, 1989. The series went on for three seasons and 65 episodes.
Chip was modeled after the Indiana Jones character and Dale imitated Magnum, P.I. The Rescue Rangers was the name of their detective agency in which Monterey Jack, Gadget Hackwrench and Zipper worked. The gang often end up feuding with the arch-villains Fat Cat and mad scientist Norton Nimnul.
In January 2014, it was announced that Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers was being adapted into a live action/CGI movie. No release date has been announced…yet?
