Chip 'n Dale are Disney cartoon characters, a pair of mischievous chipmunks. Chip is the relatively smart (albeit more neurotic) one; Dale is the less smart one with the tendency to do the clumsiest or least sensible thing possible at any given moment.

Their initial turn in the spotlight came in the Classic Disney Shorts, usually giving Donald Duck a reason to demonstrate his famous Berserk Button. (You probably remember that one cartoon where Donald was an apple farmer.) In the late 1980s, they were dusted off and given revised characters, more comprehensible voices and their own TV show, Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers.

Their name may be a pun on the famous 18th-century furniture style. It certainly isn't anything to do with the Chippendales Dancers, who they predate by many, many years.

See also Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers for tropes that refer to them specifically in said cartoon.

Not to be confused with Warner Bros.' Goofy Gophers, Mac and Tosh. (Mac and Tosh are the ultrapolite ones.)
