Characters Edit

Main Edit

  • Chip (voiced by Tress MacNeille) is the leader of the Rescue Rangers. Loosely modeled after Indiana Jones, Chip wears a fedora and a bomber jacket and frequently uses rope to lasso or swing to other spots. Chip is serious and has a strong sense of responsibility, to the point that he is sometimes accused of not knowing how to have fun. He can be domineering and often ends up in squabbles with Dale over his best friend's more laid back manner. At times, though, he also lets himself go and joins Dale in some frivolity. He and Dale have a crush on Gadget.
  • Dale (voiced by Corey Burton) is the co-founder of the Rescue Rangers. He wears a red and yellow Hawaiian shirt reminiscent of Thomas Magnum in ''Magnum, P.I.'' Though dedicated to the job, he is a fun-loving, mischievous prankster who is sometimes irresponsible and forgets to think before he acts. He spends his free time reading comic books and playing video games. A known candy addict, Dale has "chocolate attacks" similar to Monterey Jack's cheese attacks (ironically, Monty finds it disgusting that Dale can't control himself over candy). He frequently finds himself being knocked on the head by Chip when he says or does something foolish. Dale is largely a fun-loving and laid back character, though he is just as willing to get serious when the situation calls for it. Dale has also shown some remarkable creativity, as he is depicted constructing several gadgets of his own based on one of his favorite movie characters in the episode Double 'o' Chipmunks, seemingly in only a few hours, despite seeming to have little to no technological background.   
  • Monterey Jack (voiced by Peter Cullen and Jim Cummings), known as "Monty" to his friends and called "Cheeser" by his mother, is an adventure-loving, red-haired and luxuriantly moustachioed Australian mouse who spent years traveling the world before a chance meeting with [[Chip and Dale]] during their first case. After Fat Cat destroyed his home, Monty and his sidekick Zipper decided to join the group in their detective work. Stronger and larger than the others—indeed, he has demonstrated feats of strength that some humans would be hardpressed to match—Monty can be quick to anger if he, or his friends, has been offended. This trait sometimes leaves him ready to do battle with a much larger opponent, and the others having to calm him down.<ref name="DisneyEncyc" /> Monty has an overpowering addiction to cheese, and the sight or smell of cheese causes him to be almost hypnotically drawn to it in a moustache-twisting, spiralling-eyed "cheese attack". Monty loves to tell stories of his travels, even if the others often stop his reminiscing, and he often uses colorful "pseudo-australianisms" while talking, such as "Strike me starkers. Monterey Jack is the only Rescue Ranger known to have two living parents, Cheddarhead Charlie and Camembert Kate, who are also travelers. Parental Discretion Retired. Also, names of his entire family, including his own, have references to various types of cheese. Monty is most frequently found in the company of either Zipper or Dale, whose fun-loving nature matches his own. He also seems to consider Gadget to be something of a surrogate daughter, most likely due to his long friendship with her late father.<ref name="ToTheRescue" /> Due to his traveling experience, Monty often handles the traveling arrangements for the group. [[Peter Cullen]] voiced Monterey Jack in season 1, along with the first 36 episodes of season 2 excluding the 5-episode pilot. [[Jim Cummings]] voiced him in the pilot, along with the last 11 episodes of season 2, and season 3.<ref name="DisneyEncyc" /><ref>{{cite web |url=http://o.seattlepi.com/movietimes/moviepn.asp?movieID=46946 |title=Transformers: Production Notes |work=Seattle Post-Intelligencer |accessdate=August 8, 2009 }}{{dead link|date=December 2017 |bot=InternetArchiveBot |fix-attempted=yes }}</ref>
  • Gadget Hackwrench (voiced by Tress MacNeille)<ref name="DisneyEncyc" /> is a young blond-haired female mouse who is the team's pilot, mechanic and inventor who wears a purple [[jumpsuit]] with blue goggles on her head. The daughter of deceased inventor and aviator Geegaw Hackwrench, who was a good friend of Monterey Jack, she first met Chip and Dale when Monty brought them to Geegaw's in search of an airplane. At loose-ends since her father's death and eager to help, she joins the team.<ref name="ToTheRescue" /> Known to say "Golly" whenever she's surprised by something, Gadget moves, thinks, and talks quickly, sometimes leaving the others looking dazed and confused.<ref name="DisneyEncyc" /> In addition to building and maintaining the Ranger Plane, Gadget is the one responsible for the various technological items used by the team, and is regularly inventing new vehicles and tools for the team's use.<ref name="DisneyEncyc" /> She has the uncanny ability to take discarded and unrelated items and invent nearly anything with them, which she attributes to the fact that she has a "mind-bashingly high IQ" and is easily bored. Unfortunately, her creations don't always work the way she intends, and have sometimes failed at just the wrong moment to cause the team trouble. Both Chip and Dale are attracted to Gadget, and often compete for her attention, but she doesn't seem to notice in many cases. Gadget's personality was based upon the inventive female character Jordan in the 1985 movie ''[[Real Genius]]''.<ref>1989 Tad Stones Interview published in "Furtherance", Issue 3, Winter 1991</ref>
  • Zipper (voiced by [[Corey Burton]])<ref name="DisneyEncyc" /> is a tiny bluish-green [[housefly]] and a long time friend and [[sidekick]] of Monterey Jack.<ref name="ToTheRescue" /> With his tiny size and flying abilities, Zipper often handles little jobs that the rest of the Rescue Rangers cannot. He speaks in unintelligible buzzes that only Monty and other insects are able to understand, although, in later episodes, he talks more clearly. Despite his tiny size, Zipper occasionally has impressive displays of strength which are matched only by his unwavering loyalty to his friends.

Supporting Edit

  • Sergeant Spinelli (voiced by [[Jim Cummings]]) is the chief of one of the departments in the police station, where the Rescue Rangers like to watch for cases. They enjoy his office likely because Spinelli eats a lot and likes cheese dishes. As the chief of the department (which, probably investigates all kinds of loss, thefts, etc.). Usually, he is the one who, even if unintentionally, informs the Rangers about the cases. He is usually seen eating cheese sandwiches.
  • Officer Kirby and Officer Muldoon (both voiced by [[Peter Cullen]]) are two police officers who work under the supervised watch of Sergeant Spinelli. They are usually seen driving a police car, while investigating numerous crimes. Sometimes, they act as the Rangers lift to a crime scene. Although they seem like the least competent police officers on the force, the duo actually managed to solve numerous crimes (with the help of the Rescue Rangers), and were many times honored for their bravery and commitment to their uniform.
  • Tammy and Bink (both voiced by Noelle North) are two squirrel sisters who are great fans of the Rescue Rangers and their work. Tammy is strong-willed and exhibits a certain naivety consistent with her depiction as a teenager. She has a simultaneous overconfidence in her own abilities and a craving for approval and acceptance from her perceived hero figure (Chip), partly out of her dream of on day joining the Rescue Rangers. As for Bink is a little toddler who loves to eat just about anything.

  • Plato (voiced by Alan Oppenheimer) is a police bulldog who belongs to Drake and aids him in apprehending criminals, usually by biting them (nicknamed "the Crime Bite" by Drake).

Antagonist Edit

  • Fat Cat (voiced by Jim Cummings) is a felonious, obese grey tabby cat and one of the Rescue Rangers' most frequent antagonists. Formerly owned by criminal Aldrin Klordane, in which capacity the Rangers first encountered him, Fat Cat became an independent agent and animal world crime boss after Klordane's incarceration.<ref name="ToTheRescue">{{cite episode |title=To the Rescue |episodelink=List_of_Chip_%27n_Dale_Rescue_Rangers_episodes#Season_2 |series=Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers |airdate=1989-09-09 |season=2 |number=14-18 }}</ref> Inordinately proud of his appearance, he keeps his whiskers clean, wears a purple business suit, and has a taste for expensive things. Fat Cat is a ruthless criminal mastermind, and his plans, though sometimes bizarre, are nevertheless dangerous and sadistic.<ref name="DisneyEncyc" /> He hates dogs and several of his schemes have been attacks against them. The only thing he hates more than dogs are the Rescue Rangers, which he always tries to get rid of using an elaborate and slow methods, rather than killing them immediately. The complexity of his plans usually ends up being his downfall.<ref name="DisneyEncyc" /> He has a cousin who lives in Paris, France. Voice actor [[Jim Cummings]] described Fat Cat as a combination of [[Zero Mostel]] and [[Dom DeLuise]]. Fat Cat is usually accompanied by four [[henchmen]]. In spite of their combined stupidity, Fat Cat almost always sends them out to do his dirty work for him, as he is too smart, or too lazy, to get his paws dirty, and they are too stupid and intimidated by him to do anything less than follow his exact orders.
  • Wart (voiced by [[Jim Cummings]])<ref name="DisneyEncyc" /> is a [[lizard]] henchman of Fat Cat who dresses in a [[gangster]]-style suit and hat similar to his boss.
  • Mole (voiced by [[Corey Burton]]) is an overweight [[mole (animal)|mole]] henchman of Fat Cat who is slow witted but cheerful, and wears an undersized red T-shirt and a yellow hat. When plans go wrong, Mole usually is the one who Fat Cat chooses to use as a punching bag.<ref name="DisneyEncyc" />
  • Mepps (voiced by [[Peter Cullen]]) is a thin, yellow alley cat henchman of Fat Cat who is dressed in a ratty blue vest and [[Toboggan (hat)|toboggan]], and who speaks with a whiny voice.<ref name="DisneyEncyc" />
  • Snout (voiced by [[Corey Burton]]) is a [[rat]] henchman of Fat Cat who wears a short sleeved red turtle neck with a black vest and a dark blue hat that covers his eyes. He is usually only seen briefly.<ref name="DisneyEncyc" />
  • Professor Norton Nimnul (voiced by [[Jim Cummings]])<ref name="DisneyEncyc" /> is the Rangers' other major enemy and a [[mad scientist]] who once worked for Aldrin Klordane, which, as with Fat Cat, is how the Rangers first encountered him.<ref name="ToTheRescue" /> Though Nimnul is an intelligent and creative scientist, his plans often lack any trace of logic and tend to be extremely convoluted. For example, he kidnapped all the cats in the city to make an immense amount of static electricity,<ref name="Ep02">{{cite episode |title=Catteries Not Included |episodelink=List_of_Chip_%27n_Dale_Rescue_Rangers_episodes#Season_1 |series=Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers |airdate=1989-03-05 |season=1 |number=2 }}</ref> and in his appearance in the pilot he constructed a laser cannon designed to create a giant gelatin mold which would be used to cause an earthquake under the United States Gold Reserve.<ref name="ToTheRescue" /> Nimnul has receding red hair (and similarly colored, bushy [[moustache]]), wears very thick glasses, and a high-pitched laugh. Unlike other humans in the series, Nimnul is aware of the Rescue Rangers' activities, and even that they have human-level intelligence, due to their constant interference in his plans. He is physically modeled on Disney animator Bruce Talkington.<ref name="DisneyEncyc" />
  • Aldrin Klordane (voiced by [[Alan Oppenheimer]]) is a powerful crime lord in the city, who sees himself as the world's most formidable thief, as well as being Fat Cat's owner. Having faked his own death, he tried to blame Detective Donald Drake for the robbery of a priceless ruby he needed to complete his masterplan, which was to rob the World's Gold Reserve. After the Rescue Rangers foiled his plans, he was caught by Plato the police dog and surrendered himself to the police.
  • Rat Capone (voiced by [[Jim Cummings]]) is a gangster rat. His name is a parody of the crime lord [[Al Capone]], while his voice and mannerisms are deliberately modeled on [[James Cagney]]. He is responsible for the illegal handling of the cheese within the Rangers' city, as well as stealing gold, which he had once tried to build a gold castle, but the Rescue Rangers prevented him from doing so. Being the leader of his gang he has two sidekicks who do his bidding, Arnold Mousenegger and Sugar Ray Lizard (whose names are parodies of bodybuilder/actor [[Arnold Schwarzenegger]] and boxer [[Sugar Ray Leonard]]).
  • Sewernose de Bergerac (voiced by [[Pete Schrum]]) is an alligator who believes he is the world's best actor. According to himself, he was flushed down a toilet when he was still young. He then [[Sewer alligator|lived in the sewers]] just under the theater, where he learned to appreciate the opera and learned from the best actors and singers who performed there. His love for theater greatly shows in his personality. He loves dramatic entrances, vanishes with a puff of smoke and has his very own puppet show. He dreams about a starring role in an opera. Most of the time, he is "accompanied" by Euripides and Voltaire, both of them having their "own" unique personalities. He seems to have some sort of multiple personality disorder. His name is an obvious reference to the character [[Cyrano de Bergerac]].
  • The Siamese Twin Gang (both voiced by [[Tress MacNeille]]) are two siamese cats who own a laundromat and an illegal underground casino. Though not major villains, these two characters have been considered as Asian stereotypes due to the fact that they own a laundromat and speak in horribly accented English.
