Added DiffLines:

* VocalDissonance: In most of the shorts, both Chip 'n Dale were voiced by uncredited women (presumably, women from the ink and paint department, since that is where the original voices for Minnie Mouse and Daisy Duck came from). However, "Two Chips and a Miss" has them both voiced by men, which makes their voices still high pitched but slightly lower (compared with Clarice).

Their initial turn in the spotlight came in the late '40s as the antagonists in a handful of WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck cartoons, acting as little more than a reason to demonstrate his famous BerserkButton (you probably remember that one cartoon where Donald was an apple farmer) before tormenting other classic Disney characters like Pluto and Goofy. However, it would be in the late '80s, during Disney's "renaissance" period, that the two would reach the height of their popularity with ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers'', a series which recasted them as ammeter crimefighters. Since then, they've appeared in their original roles with other Disney regulars in revivals such as ''WesternAnimation/HouseOfMouse''.

The ''[[Music/AlvinAndTheChipmunks other]]'' [[Music/AlvinAndTheChipmunks squeaky-voiced cartoon chipmunks from the mid-20th century]] Chip 'n Dale are characters from the WesternAnimation/ClassicDisneyShorts comprised of two mischievous chipmunks, the sensible ([[SurroundedByIdiots albeit more neurotic]]) Chip and his clumsy [[CloudCuckoolander idiot]] friend Dale.

Chip 'n Dale are Creator/{{Disney}} cartoon characters, a pair of mischievous chipmunks. Chip is the relatively smart ([[SurroundedByIdiots albeit more neurotic]]) one; Dale is the [[CloudCuckoolander less smart one]] with the tendency to do the clumsiest or least sensible thing possible at any given moment.

Their initial turn in the spotlight came in the WesternAnimation/ClassicDisneyShorts, usually giving WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck a reason to demonstrate his famous BerserkButton. (You probably remember that one cartoon where Donald was an apple farmer.) In the late 1980s, they were dusted off and given revised characters, more comprehensible voices and their own TV show, ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers''. Like many other Disney regulars, they returned to perform their original roles in revivals such as ''WesternAnimation/HouseOfMouse''.

Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: In addition to their designs eventually becoming more distinct from one another, their first titular short sped their voices up so much that their dialogue came out as incomprehensible gibberish.


* ADogNamedDog: Chip is a chipmunk.



* FightForTheLastBite: "Mickey's Mixed Nuts" have the chipmunks fighting against Mickey for the last bag of nuts available in the local store. After a long battle, Mickey emerges triumphant inside the store but the chipmunks are able to switch the bag of nuts with one of golf balls when he's not looking as soon as he gets home. Cue Mickey and his friends in for an unpleasant surprise (save for [[TheDitz Goofy]]) when their dinner is inedible while the chipmunks are eating away.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Must have gone unnoticed by the American makers, but one cartoon shows a bottle of arsenic of which only "arse" can be seen ([[DontExplainTheJoke which is British English for "butt"]]).


* DivergentCharacterEvolution: In the earliest shorts, Chip and Dale were identical in looks and mannerisms. Eventually, Dale gained his red nose, buck teeth, and goofier personality to set him apart from Chip.
