Series creator Tad Stones' original concepts for the series did not include Chip and Dale in the cast. Stones originally suggested a series based on The Rescuers (1977), but Jeffrey Katzenberg rejected it, as work on The Rescuers Down Under (1990) was beginning in the feature department. Stones then developed a pitch called "Metro Mice", featuring a mouse character named Kit Colby as the main protagonist (as well as early versions of Gadget and Monterey Jack along with a chameleon), but Katzenberg and Michael Eisner wanted known Disney characters as the stars. It was Eisner who suggested Chip and Dale. See more »

This is one of the best DVDs I've ever bought, this is a beauty that hasn't been given the credit it deserves. I was lucky to get it at all! There've been various TV series with the same number of episodes as this and most of them got their own cinema films and/or extra series, yet all this got was a small fan-base. What was it that drove people away, especially since Thunderbirds has been popular for so long and they both share the same basic plot-line? They just don't make them like this anymore, it's all fancy 3D stuff now and that can often make the animation look worse, less realistic in various ways. The series itself is brilliant, but the homage is just too low.
