Originally, the series was going to star Bernard and Bianca from ''Disney/TheRescuers'', which would likely have departed from [[Literature/TheRescuers the books]] in favor of original content. However, when ''Disney/TheRescuersDownUnder'' was greenlit for production, the series was extensively retooled. In the revised idea from series creator Tad Stones called ''Metro Mice'', the show would center around a new team of heroic animals, which included a chameleon, a baseball-obsessed cricket, a far-sighted eagle, an earlier draft of Gadget, and a mouse that was like Monterey Jack, but had a different name. The main character, though, was an ''Franchise/IndianaJones''-type mouse named Kit Colby who sported a fedora and a fluffy collared UsefulNotes/WorldWarII bomber pilot jacket. When he proposed the show in a meeting with Michael Eisner and Jeffrey Katzenberg, the idea was well-received...except for the character of Kit Colby. At Eisner's suggestion, he was replaced with the chipmunk duo to give the show some established Disney characters to work with. The eagle, cricket and chameleon were dropped, and a fly was added to the mix.

* GPSEvidence: Subverted in "It's a Bird, It's Insane, It's Dale!" in how Gadget finds where Seymour's hiding the monuments he's stealing. She takes a flyer from his travel agency, analyzes it chemically, and then tells the Rangers the exact address...which she read on the flyer.

* CaliforniaDoubling: It's not quite clear where the Rangers are based, but that place looks a lot like Burbank and Hollywood. Although it is animated.



%%* FanArt: ''And how!''



* FollowTheLeader: The comic book parodied this by having several knock-offs of the Rescue Rangers actually appear within the stories. The first group they encountered was revealed to [[TheMole be working for Fat Cat]], though.

* AdaptationalHeroism: In the ClassicDisneyShorts, Chip and Dale were usually depicted as troublemakers whose karmic enforcement was mostly just revenge over someone slighting them. In the series, they are altruistic crime fighters, with their mischievous streak much more downplayed.

** One episode ("Out of Scale") shares a title with a [[ClassicDisneyShorts classic cartoon]], and borrows a few plot elements from it as well, such as a toy train set and the 'munks living in a toy house.
