Storyline

Donald needs a log for his fire. Unfortunately, the one he picks is occupied by a couple of chipmunks and their stash of acorns. When he cuts it down, Chip and Dale fall out, but their acorns stay behind, so they work at putting out Donald's fire and retrieving their stash. Donald, of course, takes this as calmly and cheerfully as you would expect. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Trivia

Though this is not their first cartoon appearance, it is the first one they starred in. Chip an' Dale is the cartoon title and the names of the two chipmunks which is based on the work of cabinetmaker Thomas Chippendale (1718-1779) who was active in London and worked in the mid-Georgian, English Rococo, and Neoclassical styles.

Goofs

At short's end, Dale is seen holding up one end of a piece of wood, and the wood is straight as if someone is holding up the other end. However in the next scene, when one sees him walking away with it, he is in the middle of the piece of wood, holding it by himself. See more »

Lively Chip an' Dale cartoon
25 October 2009 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

This is one of my favourite Chip an' Dale cartoons. It is lively and on the whole well animated. The animation is very colourful and vibrant, a couple of stiff movements here and there, but not at all bad. My only other minor criticism is that the story is very routine. The music however is lovely and memorable, and like in Toy Tinkers I loved it that Donald was made the antagonist of the picture. Chip an' Dale are as funny and as cute as ever, and Clarence Nash does a fine job voicing Donald. I may be biased for liking this, but I love Donald Duck, he is such a great character. There are some funny moments, one of my favourites was when Donald sticks his head into the fireplace and Chip an' Dale drop snow onto his head from above. All in all, lively and fun. 8/10 Bethany Cox
