Product Description

An hour-long collection of Disney cartoons. Chicken in the Rough, 1951, In a farmyard a hen is sitting on a nest of eggs when Chip an' Dale, who are picking acorns, come upon the eggs. A baby chick comes out of one of the eggs and Dale, in trying to stuff chick back into the egg, gets involved with a rooster. He is finally trapped under hen with rooster pacing out in front. Chip 'n' Dale, 1947, Cold Awakens Donald; he goes out to chop tree for log. Chipmunks, Dale and Chip, inside log, shaken out into snow, follow Don into house to get nuts left in log. They try various ways to get log from fireplace and finally succeed. Out of Scale, 1951, Donald, as the engineer of a miniature train, runs into difficulties with Chip 'n Dale when he replaces an oak tree, where they have stored nuts, with a miniature tree. A chase follows and chipmunks end up in the miniature village where they duck into a tiny house. Gags follow with Donald simulating extremes of weather. Chips decide to get their tree back. Tree is kicked onto tracks and train drives a hold through the tree. Chips put "Giant Redwood" sign on tree and convince Donald it is in scale. Two Chips and a Miss, 1952, Chipmunks attend a nightclub and vie with one another for attention of a nightclub singer who divides her attention between the two. Food for Feudin', 1950, Chipmunks fill a tree with nuts. Pluto causes the nuts to roll down into his doghouse. They try to retrieve nuts. Eventually lure Pluto up hill with nuts. Working for Peanuts, 1953, Chip and Dale steal peanuts from Dolores, the elephant. Donald, using Dolore's trunk as a vacuum cleaner, pulls the peanuts away from the thieves, and then in machine-gun fashion, he shoots the nuts back at the chipmunks. He misses the chipmunks, they laugh, he chases them and knocks himself out by hitting a wall. Chipmunks cover themselves with whitewash, and sneak back into the zoo as rare albino chipmunks, fooling both Donald and Dolores into giving them more peanuts. Out on a Limb, 1950, Donald, as a tree surgeon, discovers the tree home of Chip an' Dale and decides to have sport. The chipmunks, unaware he is in the tree, think the tree pruner is a monster. Gags with pruner and lawn mower; Donald loses and has tantrum. Three for Breakfast, 1948, Chip and Dale try to get pancakes which Donald is making. Fork flies in and leaves with pancake on it. Continues until fork misses and sticks into pan of rubber cement, spilling on stove which forms rubber pancake. Donald replaces pancake with rubber cake. The chipmunks are frustrated, and the gag backfires on Donald. Dragon Around, 1954, Donald, a steamshovel operator, is clearing an excavation and must tear out the tree where the Chips are living. Chip and Dale have been reading a fairy tale and imagine the steamshovel is a dragon. When they see their home threatened, they set out to 'kill' the dragon. Donald decides he is going to have some fun and tease the Chips. In the course of the battle that ensues, the Chips manage to get into Donald's tool chest. With his wrench they unbolt the steamshovel, causing it to fall apart. Having thus 'slain' the "Dragon," they save their home.

The mischievous chipmunks Chip and Dale began as the unnamed rodent-pests in "Private Pluto" (1943); they acquired names in their third film, "Chip an' Dale" (1947). Although the duo became a mainstay of the Disney shorts during the late '40s and '50s, primarily as adversaries for Donald Duck, the characters never quite gelled. Their appearance and the pitch and comprehensibility of their voices change noticeably from film to film. Chip (the smarter one with the smaller nose) and Dale (the dim one with the larger nose and, often, buck teeth) are at their best when they're trying to protect their home and acorns from Donald ("Chip an' Dale," "Out on a Limb") or Pluto ("Food for Feudin'"). They're less appealing when they become aggressors ("Three for Breakfast"). The other three entries in the Classic Cartoon Favorites series, devoted to Mickey, Donald, and Pluto, repeat many of the shorts previously released in the Walt Disney Treasures series. This disc is the first one devoted entirely to Chip an' Dale. (Unrated, suitable for ages 5 and older: cartoon violence, minor ethnic stereotyping) --Charles Solomon

I really like knowing I can pop this DVD in and let it play and not worry about having to fast forward through scary parts or inappropriate stuff.

This would have been a five star release if not for:
1) it is too short and
2) It has only two of their three solo cartoons. "LONE CHIPMUNKS" is missing and SHOULD have been included. It is unlikely that Chip & Dale will get their own Disney Treasures DVD release with only three cartoons.

Unlike most of the Cartoon Favorites series DVDs, this installment mostly features cartoons not yet available on the Disney Treasures series. The descriptions are already included above, so I will give the duplication run down here:

CHIP AND DALE (1947)- NEW TO DVD but expected to be on the Disney Treasures: Chronological Donald volume 3 to be released this Dec. 11 2007.

TREE FOR BREAKFAST (1948) - NEW TO DVD but expected to be on the Disney Treasures: Chronological Donald volume 3 to be released this Dec. 11 2007.

OUT ON A LIMB (1950) - NEW TO DVD but expected to be on the Disney Treasures: Chronological Donald volume 3 to be released this Dec. 11 2007.

FOOD FOR FEUDIN' (1950) - Only cartoon already released on "Disney Treasures: Complete Pluto volume 2".

OUT OF SCALE (1951) - NEW TO DVD, not yet announced for any Donald Duck release.

CHICKEN IN THE ROUGH (1951) - NEW TO DVD - solo Chip & Dale cartoon.

TWO CHIPS AND A MISS (1952) - NEW TO DVD - solo Chip & Dale cartoon.

WORKING FOR PEANUTS (1953) - NEW TO DVD, not yet announced for any Donald Duck release.

DRAGON AROUND (1954) - NEW TO DVD, not yet announced for any Donald Duck release.

Bottom line: This is a MUST GET DVD!

It's about time an affordable series of Disney cartoons was released. I know they've had some truly stellar gift sets, box sets, metallic box sets, etc, and those are GREAT. But not everyone can afford an investment of that sort. When my 17 year old son was about 4, we used to enjoy the heck out of Chip `n' Dale cartoons. Disney had a couple of video tapes dedicated to them, each with somewhere around 5 cartoons. They were less than $10 and believe me, we nearly wore those suckers out. Since the advent of DVD, we haven't had such an affordable little collection.

Now comes this new series, and I immediately had to snatch up the Chip `n' Dale collection. We get just under an hour of entertainment...a cross section of Chip `n' Dale's history. Although I don't have young kids anymore, the whole family enjoyed a little trip down memory lane with these undeniably funny characters. All the episodes where the two chipmunks torment poor Donald Duck are just hilarious.

I highly recommend this affordable romp!

I got this wonderful DVD today for my siblings and I (mainly me lol) to enjoy. I've always wanted to see these shorts again since you can't see them on tv (the Current Disney Channel sucks). All of the shorts are very funny, but I was dissapointed by one thing: none of the shorts were resorted in any way, it looks as if they wentr through a quick cleanup and that's it. I was expecting the picture quality on this to match that of the Goofy DVD (those were restored from the previous Treasures release), but sadly they do not. The picture is oversaturated and a bit too dark. It's great to finally have these shorts on DVD and I would recomend them to anyone who wants to see them again or who has small kids. But it would be nice if we got the perfect picture like with the Treasures DVD's. Buy and enjoy.

How can a DVD be "great" and only merit three stars? Simple - while the actual content is genuine gold, the presentation and selection of that content is highly questionable. Each short on this disc is fantastic, doubly so if you're a Chip n' Dale fan, as I am. You'll be laughing for the entire sixty minutes at a great set of cartoons that show what made Disney so great. I don't give the cartoons themselves three stars, indeed the cartoons are deserving of five stars.

Unfortunately the package itself leads to some serious questioning. To begin, none of the cartoons appear to have been restored - the transfers are particularly shoddy. Compared to the Disney Treasures sets, the cartoons on this disc look very dark and dull - this is very unfortunate as it does little justice to the incredible talents of the Disney production studio. Having compared a few of the shorts that are included on this set to their counterparts on The Chronological Donald Volume 3, I can say that I am very disappointed.

Secondly, like other reviewers here on Amazon, I question the selection of cartoons for the disc. While there are some very funny cartoons on the disc, I would have loved to see The Lone Chipmunk, a short that is likely not to appear on the Disney Treasures sets. At least the set does include Chicken in the Rough (a fantastic short) and Two Chips and a Miss, both solo outings. Most of the shorts will showcase what made Chip n' Dale such great antagonists for the ever irascible (and ever hilarious) Donald Duck.

The DVD is saved, perhaps, by its low price. At $9.99 USD this DVD is a real bargain. While I regret that the presentation is of very low quality, the simple fact is that the disc has sixty minutes of hilarious cartoons is well worth the entry fee.
