The History of Chip 'n Dale
Originally, Chip 'n Dale were just a couple of mischievous chipmunks created to annoy Pluto in a 1943 cartoon short. Not intended to be recurring characters, they didn’t even have names. Only after Walt Disney reintroduced the adorable little rascals and they began to develop personalities, did they eventually acquire their names, which came from a pun derived from the famous furniture designer of the 18th century, Thomas Chippendale. Chip, the brains of the duo, has a “chocolate chip” nose and is known to be more clever and intelligent than his best friend, Dale. Silly and often clumsy, Dale can easily be spotted by his red nose and tuft of hair atop his head.
