Chip and Dale, Disney's fun-loving chipmunks are re-imagined as the leaders of a team of detectives/crime-fighters, rounding out the team are two mice, Gadget Hackwrench and Monterey Jack and Zipper, a fly.
Each themed season had an opening of its own when they originally aired. In 1977, the kids entering the schoolhouse in "Figure Eight" was used. A few years later, the song including Schoolhouse Rocky seen on the VHS compilations was used. The DVDs exclude it but the 30th Anniversary Edition kept the tune of it for the menu's intro to Disc One and the schoolhouse footage for Disc Two. In video releases recurring series singer, Bob Dorough was the voice of the jukebox announcing each upcoming short while Jack Sheldon's conductor from "Conjunction Junction" was the Chef announcing each special (leading to the title).

I'm sure we all remember these classic musical shorts from Saturday morning. It premiered ten years before I was born, but I still caught some of them on Saturday morning. I think the two most popular ones of all time were "I'm Just A Bill" and "Conjunction Junction". But there were more cool ones too, like "Electricity! Electricity!" and "Lolly, Lolly, Lolly, Get Your Adverbs Here". It entertained you as well as taught you stuff and that is what so many kid shows are lacking now adays. It taught math, science, history, grammar, all that good stuff!
It's not on anymore but I wish it were. I hear it's celebrating it's 30th anniversary, though it's a year early. Those of you who remember this show know what I'm talking about. Those who don't, well, it was pretty cool. There's really not much more to say. It was a cool show. It might be back someday. If not, I'm sure they're available on video.
