animated cartoon Private Pluto © DisneyThe first appearance of the chipmunks who would go on to be known as Chip and Dale, named after the furniture maker Thomas Chippendale. The two chipmunks were identical in their first two appearances, but would then gain distinct visual differences.

Chip would retain much of his original design with a small black nose and proper incisors and played more the straight-man. Dale meanwhile, was giving a large reddish nose, ruffled fur on top of his head and goofy-like buck teeth, as well as a goof off personally to match.

The duo would star in twenty-three shorts, mostly against Pluto or Donald. They would later become the titular characters of the 1989 TV series, Chip 'N Dale: Rescue Rangers.
