Chip and Dale up to their usual tricks again
5 February 2004 | by (England) – See all my reviews

I like fifties cartoons that are rendered in the sharp-edged 'jazz' style - for example Mr Magoo and Friz Freleng's excellent 'Three Little Bops' - and this Chip and Dale short has that look about it, albeit to a less extreme degree. The scenes with the two hyperactive chipmunks and Dolores the elephant are a joy, but Donald Duck comes over as more annoying than usual, thanks in no small part to that VERY annoying "I'm gonna scrub Dolores" song he keeps singing...why DO Disney characters have that habit of singing corny songs in keeping with whatever they're doing at the time? It's just about bearable with the likes of Goofy, but when Donald's irritating off-key rasp throttles these inane ditties half to death, it's slightly more than I can bear. Nonetheless, a funny outing for Chip and Dale fans, with a good surprise ending.
