TV Series Review

Back in 1943, two anthropomorphic chipmunk brothers came to life within Walt Disney studios. Their names were Chip and Dale.

Over the years, Chip and Dale have been Rescue Rangers, friends with Mickey Mouse and the gang, friendly enemies with Pluto and were even featured in video games. Now, Chip and Dale are taking on the city in a new series on Disney+ called Chip ‘N’ Dale: Park Life.

This animated, TV-Y7, two-dimensional show finds both chipmunks sporting their traditional personalities: Chip, the more put-together, logical one and Dale, the goof. But this time around the brothers aren’t talking at a speed that makes them hard to understand—they’re actually completely non-verbal.

And yet, that doesn’t seem to slow down any of the fun adventures, schemes or troubles in which the pair find themselves. All in all, at least according to the pilot episode, this is a family-friendly series that includes the same gags and pranks you would find in the classics. Yet the TV-Y7 rating seems strange for something so tame.

Patriarchy, political agendas and natural survival all drive this series. But so do gender, violence, heavy language and sexual content.
