A glimpse into chipmunk nightlife!
6 May 2005 | by See all my reviews

"Two Chips and a Miss" diverts from the typical Chip & Dale formula of Chipmunks vs. Donald (or whatever Disney main character they happen to be pitted against) to give viewers a rare glimpse into the social world of chipmunks! Apparently, they don't just collect acorns and dig holes -- they have their own clothing style, hit music, and nightclubs! It's rather refreshing to see Chip & Dale pitted against each other instead of against a hapless gardener or nosey pooch. And it turns out that Chip & Dale are actually pretty good singers! Several years before Alvin, Simon, and Theodore recorded their first hit album, the folks at Disney had discovered that "chipmunk" singing was actually quite fun. I suppose the story lacks a substantial plot, but it's just so charming, and I have such fond nostalgic feelings associated with it, I can't help but be a cheerleader for this cartoon. I loved it as a child, and it still brings a big smile to my face.
