!![[WesternAnimation/ChipAndDaleRescueRangers The Series]]
* CanonFodder:
** Gadget's past and the fate of her father has never been explored.
** What happened between Monterey Jack and Gadget's father.
** What Monterey Jack was doing before he met the Rangers.
* ContestedSequel: Any official comics. [[Comicbook/ChipNDaleRescueRangers Those released by Boom! Comics in particular]], for unlike every other official CDRR release, they came almost two decades after the last official story, and they came after the fandom and its FanFiction culture had been established.
* CrazyAwesome: Dale's plans make him just this.
* DieForOurShip: Poor Sparky. While he isn't usually outright ''hated'', because he gets a ShipTease with Gadget in the episode he appears in his existence has been known to make quite a few [=Chip/Gadget=] or [=Dale/Gadget=] shippers uncomfortable.
%%* DracoInLeatherPants: Lahwhinie.
* EarWorm:
** It's a Disney Afternoon show, so naturally the theme song will get stuck in your head.
** The Fat Cat Stomp from "Adventures in Squirrelsitting".
** The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y3Ek9VjGcgY Coo-Coo Cola]] jingle in "The Case of the Cola Cult".
** Even some of the background music.
** The extraordinarily catchy "The Best of Everything" from the pilot.
** The NES Game's entire soundtrack. Zone J is particularly memorable.
* EnsembleDarkhorse:
** Foxglove the Bat, despite appearing in only one episode, has an ''enormous'' cult following, eventually earning her own website which [[http://foxglove.cdrrhq.ru/foxmain.html still exists to this day]] (though it hasn't been updated since 2000).
** Just like Foxglove, Lahwhinie appeared in one episode but gets an impressive amount of spotlight in fanfics and fanart.
* EvilIsSexy: Lahwhinie, although she is basically the EvilTwin to Gadget. Also Desiree D'Allure.
* FandomRivalry: Fans of this show tend to harbor a resentment towards ''WesternAnimation/{{Bonkers}}'' for replacing ''Rescue Rangers'' in the time slot.
* FanficFuel: Most prominently, the scenes in "To the Rescue, Part 3" when Monty and Gadget talk about Geegaw, leaving the viewer with more questions than answers, and the end of "Good Times, Bat Times" which leaves the Dale/Foxglove pairing unresolved.
* {{Fanon}}:
** Chip ''Maplewood'' and Dale ''Oakmont'' was coined by Michael Demcio in ''Rhyme and Reason''; it's been used by pretty much every fanfic writer ever since.
** Gadget's coffee addiction.
** Tammy as a nurse. It may have [[AscendedFanon become canon]], depending on how canonical one views the BOOM! comics.
** The death of Gadget's mother (who went unmentioned in the series, and has been given many different names) and father (who was only mentioned in the pilot). There's been countless theories created by the fandom, but pretty much everyone agrees that Gadget's mother died well before Geegaw.
** When Lahwhinie appears in FanFic, she's related to Gadget (usually her [[LongLostRelative long lost twin sister]]) more often than not.
* FanPreferredCouple:
** The [[ShipToShipCombat one great debate]] is not about whom Gadget shall be together with. It is about whether ("pro") or not ("anti") Gadget shall be together with Chip. No matter whom she'd end up with, if anyone, if not with Chip. The majority of fans, by the way, seems to be in favor of Chip/Gadget.
** Dale/Foxglove.
** Prior to the premiere of "Good Times, Bat Times", Dale and Gadget were the major Fan-Preferred Couple.
** You'll notice not many people ship Gadget with the OneShotCharacter Sparky, a lab rat and basically Gadget's equivalent to Dale's Foxglove; a one episode ShipTease. This is basically the pairing pros and antis can both agree to dislike.
* {{Ficdom}}: A few fans declared that they're bigger fans of the FanFic than of the show itself.
* GeniusBonus: Monterey Jack is obsessed with cheese. Monterey Jack is also the name for a blend of cheese from Monterey, California.
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: Judging from the fanart from that particular country, a sizable portion of the ''Rescue Ranger'' fandom comes from Russia. A slightly disturbing subset of Russian Rangers fandom literally ''worships'' Gadget. [[http://www.odditycentral.com/news/russian-cult-worships-female-cartoon-character.html No, this is not a joke.]]
* HilariousInHindsight:
** The voice Creator/JimCummings uses when he plays Monterey Jack's father Cheddarhead Charlie on the episode "Parental Discretion Retired" is actually the voice Cummings used to play Monterey Jack after Creator/PeterCullen left the show. "Parental Discretion Retired" was one of the early episodes that had Monterey Jack voiced by Peter Cullen.
** In "A Wolf in Cheap Clothing", Jim Cummings voices a Tasmanian devil. A couple of years later, Cummings would become the voice for ''the'' [[WesternAnimation/TazMania Tasmanian Devil]] (as in, the WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes character)
** Monterey Jack talked a lot like [[Series/CrocodileHunter Steve Irwin]] already before the latter was even known outside Australia.
** "A Chorus Crime" features [[WesternAnimation/HappyFeet large quantities of penguins tap-dancing on the ice]].
** In the episode "A Lad in a Lamp", the genie is voiced by Creator/DanCastellaneta. The episode predated Disney/{{Aladdin}} by three years and is funny because Dan Castellaneta would become TheOtherDarrin for the Genie in the Aladdin animated series due to Creator/RobinWilliams having a dispute with Disney.
* HoYay: Dale during the [[DisguisedInDrag drag act]] in ''Adventures of Squirrelsitting''. He's clearly enjoying his disguise and is flirty with both Chip, Monthy and even [[FoeYay Fat Cat]].
-->'''Monthy''': I'm sorry, pallies. But Gagdet needs some cover.
--> '''Dale''': No problem! ''(winks and rotates his shoulder)''
%%* IronWoobie: Tom from the episode "Robocat".
* JustHereForGodzilla:
** Some viewers just want to watch Gadget.
** And then there are the episodes "Adventures in Squirrelsitting" and "Good Times, Bat Times" where even more people are here for Tammy and Foxglove respectively.
* MoralEventHorizon: Fat Cat crosses it in 'Adventures in Squirrelsitting' when he threatens to drop Tammy and Bink to their deaths if he doesn't get the Maltese Mouse and even when he gets what he wants he drops them. Thankfully, Chip and Dale are there to save them.
* MostAnnoyingSound: For some Chip's high-pitched voice. Also Professor Nimnul's crazy laugh.
* OneSceneWonder:
** Foxglove from "Good Times, Bat Times". Foxglove has an entire website devoted to her (and now dedicated to her voice actress, the late Deborah Walley).
** Tammy and Bink from "Adventures in Squirrelsitting".
** Queenie from "Risky Beesness".
** Sparky from "Does Pavlov Ring a Bell?"
** Lahwhinie from "Gadget Goes Hawaiian."
** Geegaw Hackwrench from "To the Rescue, Part 3" isn't even really a character, he is only ever shown on a picture. Yet, despite his unknown fate and total personal absence, he is quite popular in the fandom.
* PopularWithFurries: The fandom contains a lot of furries, many who consider the cartoon their GatewaySeries. Especially Gadget who is a fan-favorite (Disney was honestly surprised with her popularity).
* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Chip and Dale tend to be more memorable and beloved for their heroic roles in the show than their [[BaseBreakingCharacter rather polarising tenure]] as Donald and Pluto's foes in the WesternAnimation/ClassicDisneyShorts.
* {{Shipping}}: Chip/Gadget, Dale/Foxglove, et al. If there's even one hint of a ship in the series, someone's supported it somewhere in the fandom.
* ShipToShipCombat: The debate over the Chip/Gadget ship led to two flame wars known as the Ranger Wars (one in 1997 and the other in 1998), and it will probably never be settled.
* TestosteroneBrigade: Gadget [[http://www.odditycentral.com/news/russian-cult-worships-female-cartoon-character.html has her own religion.]] Seriously.
* UglyCute:
** Zipper's pretty cute for a bug.
** Foxglove still manages to be ''very'' cute, without being a HumanoidFemaleAnimal.
* TheWoobie:
** Gadget can have amazing Woobie appeal when she loses confidence in her piloting or inventing skills, such as in "To the Rescue" and "The Case of the Cola Cult".
** Dale counts considering how much he's made fun of, and is hurt in the process.
** Pity poor Sparky the lab rat. He genuinely believes his owner Professor Nimnul is a good guy, only wants to use science to help people, develops a crush on Gadget... and has no memory of the awful things he does while [[BrainwashedAndCrazy under Nimnul's control]]. He's pretty horrified when he sees the results of his actions, and although it's played mostly for laughs, in hindsight it must pain him deeply to learn he's been used for evil purposes and that the man he admired was evil.

!![[VideoGame/ChipNDaleRescueRangers The Games]]
* AnticlimaxBoss: While the first game as a whole isn't too hard, a number of the bosses (including [[BigBad Fat Cat]]) barely move at all, and are highly predtaictable.
* EvenBetterSequel: The second game isn't as well known due to being released so late in the [=NES's=] lifespan, but it improved on the first in nearly every way possible, from graphics, to gameplay, to having a story that would not be out of place in a multi-part TV episode.
* GameBreaker: In the second game, proper use of the fastball special makes most bosses incredibly easy.
* NoProblemWithLicensedGames: Both games are held in high regard as classic co-op platformers.
* ThatOneLevel: The final level of the first game greatly cranks up the difficulty. Most of the level takes place on conveyor belts that mess with your character's speed and make it difficult to move, which is especially troublesome during points where you have to make some difficult jumps with your moment hampered. There are no stone blocks for you to carry around constantly to protect yourself with. Not to mention that the enemies in the second half of the level have the ability to fire projectile weapons, and if they do they can destroy your boxes if you attempt to hide in them, which will leave you defenseless. Be prepared to die at least a couple of times before you finally reach Fat Cat.
