  • Performer(s) Appeared in Chip 'n' Dale are a pair of rascally chipmunks who star in cartoons and comics produced by The Walt Disney Company. First appearing without names in the 1943 animated short Private Pluto, they went on to become recurring adversaries for Donald Duck and sometimes Pluto (and even Mickey Mouse on at least one occasion), including starring in a few Christmas cartoons with them. Originally designed as two identical chipmunks, the pair later became distinguishable in that Chip is the more serious one with a black nose, while Dale is the sillier one who has buck teeth and a red nose. In 1989, they also starred in their own animated television series, Chip 'n' Dale Rescue Rangers, though it never had a Christmas episode (however, a Chip 'n' Dale Rescue Rangers comic story
  • Chip and Dale (also rendered as Chip 'n' Dale or Chip an' Dale) are two Chipmunk cartoon characters created in 1943 at Walt Disney Productions. Their names are a pun based on the name of the famous 18th-century cabinet maker Thomas Chippendale. This was suggested by Bill "Tex" Henson, a story artist at the studio. In most cartoons they are either antagonists against Pluto or more frequently against Donald Duck. In the 1950s, they were finally given their own series, but only three cartoons were made; Chicken in the Rough (1951), Two Chips and a Miss (1952) and The Lone Chipmunks (1954).
  • Chip 'n' Dale made their debut in the Pluto animated short "Private Pluto" (1943) which was followed in (1946) by another Pluto short "Squatters Rights". After these two early shorts they would go on to make numerous appearances in Donald Duck shorts throughout the 40's and 50's. Eventually appearing in several shorts of their own.

  • Chip and Dale (also rendered as Chip 'n' Dale or Chip an' Dale) are two Chipmunk cartoon characters created in 1943 at Walt Disney Productions. Their names are a pun based on the name of the famous 18th-century cabinet maker Thomas Chippendale. This was suggested by Bill "Tex" Henson, a story artist at the studio. According to Disney, Chip is the logical schemer, and Dale is the goofy, dim-witted one. Originally the two were of a very similar appearance, but as a way to tell them apart, some differences were introduced. An easy way to visually tell them apart is that Chip has a small black nose (it looks a bit like a chocolate "chip" as a way to help people remember who is who) and two centered protruding teeth, whereas Dale has a big red nose (except in the very earliest shorts) and his two prominent buck teeth exposed. Chip is also depicted as having smooth, short fur atop his head while Dale's tends to be ruffled. In most cartoons they are either antagonists against Pluto or more frequently against Donald Duck. In the 1950s, they were finally given their own series, but only three cartoons were made; Chicken in the Rough (1951), Two Chips and a Miss (1952) and The Lone Chipmunks (1954).
  • Chip 'n' Dale made their debut in the Pluto animated short "Private Pluto" (1943) which was followed in (1946) by another Pluto short "Squatters Rights". After these two early shorts they would go on to make numerous appearances in Donald Duck shorts throughout the 40's and 50's. Eventually appearing in several shorts of their own. In their first appearances they were indistinguishable, looking identical (very similar to Chip's common "pre-Rescue Rangers" appearance), but soon they took on different aspects and personalities. As they developed, Chip became the leader and Dale the follower. However, Dale does have very strong opinions and often does things his own way, much to Chip's dismay, and to Dale's peril. Chip is the smarter of the two, has a darker pelt, a black nose and one tooth; Dale is goofier, lighter in color, has a large red nose and two buck teeth. Their earliest acquaintances were two girlfriends that they both shared, Clarice and Chi-Chi. Clarice was a singer who first appeared in a Chip 'n' Dale cartoon ("Two Chips and a Miss" 1952), and later reappeared many times in comics. Chi-Chi has only appeared in comics. They also shared twin nephews, Zip 'n' Zap, and had a common Grandpa (as well as other relatives), which raises the possibility that they are related, perhaps even brothers (they certainly act like siblings).
