From The Disney Afternoon comes this live-action/animated action-adventure comedy based on Chip and Dale’s detective life. The animation, story and voice acting are amazing. You will love the comedy and the way the characters are developed. This world is so inviting and easy to follow, this movie is one adults won’t mind watching along with their children.

The Disney Afternoon is from the 90s and it was a two-hour daily TV block of fun Disney animated series. The block over the years had DuckTales, TaleSpin, Darkwing Duck, Gargoyles and many more. This movie is about one animated series in the block, which was that of the Rescue Rangers, Chip n' Dale: Rescue Rangers. I loved watching the group pick up the slack and solving crimes the real police failed to close. I enjoyed their many adventures and lived off reruns.

In a way this movie feels like a spiritual successor to 1988’s Who Framed Roger Rabbit. With Disney’s legal team going to work to get as many animated characters as possible from other studios to make this movie’s world building fit. The world building is like 1988’s Who Framed Roger Rabbit, where the animations live in the same world as humans and their animations are them going to work as entertainers.

We get to see the life behind the two chipmunks Chip and Dale. How they met when they were young and how they became a comedy pair. Their work landed them the gig with Disney to play the lead in the series Chip n’ Dale: Rescue Rangers. Dale felt he was living in Chip’s shadow and wanted to venture on his own with his own solo show, which led to their show being cancelled and his show never went past the pilot phase. The group part ways, with Gadget and Flipper getting married. Jack went on his merry way with an addiction problem. The two leads no longer talk.

Now in the present, (many years after) Chip is working as an insurance salesperson and Dale is still going about doing as many little gigs as possible so he can get to pay the bills and trying to revive the glory days. Chip gets a call from Monterey Jack, who was in big with a loan shark. Jack owed Sweet Pete a lot of money because of his cheese addiction and if he does not pay, he was going o be bootlegged. Chip shows up hears the story and then Dale also shows up because Jack called the two for help. Chip leaves believing it was a plan to get them together and patch things up. He latter gets a call from Dale that Jack has been taken. The two must team up to find their friend.

The movie is available to stream on Disney+.
