* RedHerring: In the Cola Cult episode, it seems pretty obvious to the viewer that Pop Top's cult is a fraud, meant to fleece its members of their valuables. It does later turn out that the cult is a fraud--but not because of its leader, Pop Top, who ''did'' seriously believe the cult's message. The con artist is actually Bubbles, Pop Top's right-hand mouse, who figured out how to profit by the cult.

Originally, the series was actually going to be about Disney/TheRescuers, which would likely have departed from the books in favor of original content. However, when ''Disney/TheRescuers Down Under'' was greenlit for production, the series was extensively retooled. In the revised idea from series creator Tad Stone called ''Metro Mice'', the show would center around a team of 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 ''Indiana Jones''-type mouse named Kit Colby who sported a fedora and a fluffy collared WWII 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. (This might've been one of the few good decisions Eisner ever made while at Disney.) The eagle, cricket and chameleon were dropped, and a fly was added to the mix.

* AppropriatedAppeallation: When Plato said the fate of the federal gold reserved rest with the group, he called them 'Rescue Rangers'. Chip liked the name and it became official.


Added DiffLines:

* SkewedPriorities: Surprisingly, the team was like this in the FivePartPilot when they were only focused on getting the ruby, disregarding Fat Cat's plan to rob fishing boats and ending up foiling him by accident, why Clawdane wanted a giant glacier, and even when the federal gold reserve was about to be robbed. Lampshaded when they admit to Plato they failed to get the ruby and he told them it wasn't as important as they thought. Of course it's justified both by following Plato's advice to get the ruby and escape and that they felt that the humans could handle the problem. The experience is what convinced them that there are things they are the only ones can handle.


Added DiffLines:

* WeWorkWellTogether: After stopping Clawdane, Monty, Zipper, and Gadget were about to go back to their normal lives, much to Chip and Dale's disappointment. When a little girl was heard saying her puppy was missing, they decided to stay to help and became a permanent team.

* BatOutOfHell: {{Subverted}} to hell and back in "Good Times, Bat Times". A cleaning woman-turned-witch has three of the standard horror animals as familiars: Bud the snake, Lou the spider, and Foxglove the bat. While Bud and Lou are {{affectionate parod|y}}ies of AbbottAndCostello and thoroughly evil, Foxglove is cute, nice, kind, chipmunk-sized, in love with Dale, and probably more popular in the fandom than Monterey Jack.
