Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers is an animated series made by The Walt Disney Company. It features the chipmunks Chip 'n Dale, with three friends, as detectives.
The concept began life as a two hour standalone television special, Rescue Rangers: To the Rescue. The series itself began airing on March 5, 1989, often paired in an hour-long show with DuckTales. The last episode aired on November 19, 1990, by which time the series was a part of the then-fledgling Disney Afternoon and continued to air for some time thereafter in its lineup.
65 episodes were created in total; To the Rescue was broken up into five half-hour segments (episodes 14-18).
Heroes In this show Chip wears a fedora and a flight jacket, much like Indiana Jones. He serves as the leader of the Rescue Rangers and spends his free time reading detective fiction, his favorite character being Sureluck Jones, apparently a play on the names of Sherlock Holmes and Indiana Jones. He is presented as very dedicated to his duty, and usually somewhat serious and responsible.
Dale wears a red and yellow Hawaiian shirt. Though also dedicated to duty, he is presented as a fun-loving, mischievous prankster and somewhat irresponsible. He spends his free time reading comic books, playing video games, watching Sci-fi and horror movies, mostly B-movies and eating candy.
Monterey Jack is an Australian muscle mouse who has a constant craving for cheese and a pesky fear of cats. Monty first met Chip and Dale on their first case as Rescue Rangers. He joined them along with his companion Zipper and Gadget Hackwrench. Monty is protective over Gadget, having somewhat of a father-daughter relationship with the younger mouse.
Gadget Hackwrench is a young female mouse and the mechanic and inventor of the team. She is the daughter of deceased inventor and aviator Geegaw Hackwrench, an old friend of Monterey Jack. She first met Chip and Dale on their first case as Rescue Rangers and has joined them along with Monterey Jack and his companion Zipper, since she had nowhere else to go after her father's death. Both Chip and Dale are very attracted to Gadget, but she usually does not notice because she is working on her inventions most of the time. The character is arguably the most popular introduced in the series and has a steady fanbase in the Internet. Her sweetness, innocence and unattainability (at least as far as Chip and Dale are concerned) make her a "good girl" pin-up goddess for male viewers of the furry fandom persuasion.
Zipper the Fly appears as Monterey Jack's sidekick and the mascot of the Rescue Rangers. Using his ability to fly, Zipper often handles the little jobs that the rest of the Rescue Rangers cannot handle.
Fat Cat is a cat crime boss. He has four sidekicks who include an alley cat named Mepps, a lizard named Wart, a mole named Mole, and a rat named Snout. Fat Cat is one of the Rescue Rangers' most frequent enemies. Although he belonged to the human criminal Aldren Klordane in the pilot series, he is shown as a more independent animal in the rest of the series.
Mepps is one of Fat Cat's cronies. An alley cat, he is the only member of his gang who is the same species as his boss.
Professor Norton Nimnul is a mad scientist and also one of the Rescue Rangers' most frequent enemies. Sometimes Professor Nimnul has help from his nephew Normie.
