Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers is a Who’s Who cavalcade of guest appearances. It is a cartoon and animation fan’s wonderland.
When Bugs Bunny interacts with Mickey Mouse Who tricked Roger Rabbit? distorted your fragile little mind as a child, rescue driver will explode your brain faster than you can say “Ugly Sonic”. (Oh, he’s here…) From old-school ’80s cartoons to modern-day characters, the film will likely make you stop your TV and yell, “ER!? IN A DISNEY STYLE!?”
Luckily, the film is streaming on Disney+, so you can pause to bask in every glorious cameo the film has to offer. Most of them are eyewash, so if you blink at the wrong moment you might miss some big faces.
To the best of my knowledge, here is a list of cameos that you may find Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers. Happy hunting! (Warning: spoilers ahead!)
Autobot Blaster – transformers
At the beginning of the film, Dale (voiced by Andy Samberg) recounts the origin of his friendship and creative partnership with Chip (voiced by John Mulaney). When they run their school’s talent show, you can spot the Autobot Blaster transformers in the audience. Did he go to high school with Chip and Dale? Was he a parent who supported his Transformer son on the talent show? Can Autobots reproduce? God I hope not…
Akiva Schaffer – director
During the opening montage, the cast of Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers Finish filming an episode of the series. As soon as the cameras stop rolling, the film’s director, Akiva Schaffer, steps in…as the director of the series. How meta?!
MC Skatkat/Paula Abdul
Nothing says ’90s nostalgia like Paula Abdul and her cool animated collaborator MC Skat Kat. These attracting opposites make brief DJ appearances during the cast’s graduation party. During this scene you can also see…
Roger rabbit – Who tricked Roger Rabbit?
…Roger Rabbit at “Roger Rabbit” with Chip and Dale. “What a party!” he calls out to the two dancing to Disney’s The Three Little Pigs. Original voice actor Charles Fleischer repeats his voice for the first time since the 1993 short Trail mix up. Nice to see the king of the live-action/animation hybrid looking as sprightly as ever.
baloo- The jungle Book and Tell stories
In the present, Dale (now with a CG operation) does the LA convention circuit to make ends meet. baloo out The jungle Book, but more importantly for millennials, Tell stories, is featured. He is accompanied by a band singing a relaxed jazz version of “The Bare Necessities”. He retains his design from the 2016 CG remake of the film and is voiced by singer Steven Curtis Chapman. Chapman once portrayed him in The Jungle Book: Rhythm ‘n Groove Video game from 2000. It may not be John Goodman or Bill Murray, both of whom voiced previous iterations of the character. But once a baloo, always a baloo.
Lumiere – Beauty and the Beast and Tigra – avenger (United they stand)
Dale isn’t the only one who’s lost his luck. He is standing mates with fellow ’90s stars Tigra (voiced by Shaffer’s wife, Liz Cackowski) from the short-lived ’90s series The Avengers: United you stand and Lumière (voiced by Jeff Bennett). Beauty and the Beast. You know that when someone like Lumière is in a difficult position, times are tough. Thank goodness he’s in his original design, because this live-action humanoid design is still a vision of nightmares. Speaking of nightmares…
The greatest cameo of the rescue driver is the only Sonic the Hedgehog. No, not the ones you see in the Paramount movies. It’s the original design that crucified the internet. The reaction was so vicious that Sonic was completely redesigned. Well, now the prodigal son returns as Ugly Sonic and works at the convention. Instead of Ben Schwartz, Tim Robinson voices the ugliest thing in the world and makes some pretty funny meta jokes about how the internet got him out of the job. Surprisingly, Ugly Sonic makes frequent appearances throughout the film as he is a legitimate character who is an integral part of the plot.
Wynnchel and Duncan – Destroy it Ralph
When their best friend Monterey Jack (voiced by Eric Bana) is kidnapped from his home, Chip and Dale return to the scene of the crime. In a blink-or-you-miss-it cameo, that sugar rush police officers from Destroy it Ralph Movies, Wynnchel and Duncan appear as…well, you guessed it, cops!
Linda Flynn-Fletcher – Phineas and Ferb
During their investigation, Chip and Dale explore a criminal black market area called Main Street, where Toons lead double lives. This street is full of criminals Phineas and Ferb‘s mother Linda Flynn-Fletcher. What crime is she up to? What crime would she be planning? Let’s hope she doesn’t get BUSTED any time soon.
Mr. Of course
Of all the Robert Crumb characters to be brought into the world of Chip ‘n Dale, we never expected a cut as deep as Mr. Natural to turn up. He also shows up on Main Street in the black market world, coming from a wig shop where Dale sells his fur from time to time. This is the first time in the film that an adult cartoon character has appeared in the film. If it wasn’t for someone as prolific as Fritz the Cat, Mr. Natural would be. Also, since he’s specifically a comic book character, this is Mr. Natural’s first animated appearance in pretty much everything. A very NSFW at that.
Randy Marsh- South Park
To continue NSFW features, RANDY FRIGGIN’ MARSH by South Park. SOUTH PARK, the biggest NSFW animated series to exist on television, appears in this film. Isn’t that a Disney movie?! In a scene where the chipmunks are doing detective work at a Russian spa, they encounter Randy Marsh sitting next to two pigs (arguing child custody?!??!) in a sauna. Randy is just chilling while he’s steaming up. It’s just window dressing, but it begs the question, how the heck did the mouse house allow the weed business owner of Tegridy Farms to appear in their movie, especially with all the endless shit they talk about the company on the show?
Scrooge McDuck – duck stories
Also in the Russian spa is none other than the richest duck in the world, Scrooge McDuck, taking his legendary golden bath. And when I mean a gold bath, I mean just swimming in a sea of gold coins. What did you think, what a golden bath I’m talking about?
He-Man & Skeletor – masters of the universe
Later in the film, the chipmunks return to the convention center, where they are met by the film’s main antagonist, Sweet Pete (aka the older Peter Pan, voiced by Will Arnett), and his goons, Bob (voiced by Seth Rogen) and Jimmy (voiced by Da’Vone McDonald). ). Cameos go into overdrive during this sequence, with animated icons appearing faster than you can say Ugly Son…wait, I already made that joke.
They run through the legs of He-Man and Skeletor standing together at a booth. The duo spat spat, with He-Man exclaiming that he felt something through his legs and Skeletor poking fun at his lack of clothing.
cubby Peter Pan
During the chase, Sweet Pete accidentally grabs the Lost Boy Cubby (voiced by Rachel Bloom, with a British accent). Peter Pan movies. At first, Cubby is happy to see his old friend, but is then immediately shocked at how old he’s gotten. Peter replies, “Yes, death comes for all of us, kid.”
Paul Rudd as himself
Well, why would live Paul Rudd be on an animated convention track? Who knows. But his brief cameo is pretty sane. He informs a few companions that Ant-Man was originally going to be called Aunt-Man, where he would be a hero to a group of aunts. The chipmunks rush past his table, startling him. Dale yells offscreen, “Sorry, love your work!” Now I want to see that said Aunt Man movie. It’s not too late Disney!
The Mane Six – My little pony: friendship is magic
During the chase, Chip and Dale fall on some ponies friendship is magic sseries Characters like Twilight Sparkle, Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Rarity, Fluttershy, and Pinkie Pie appear. They ride them for a while while being pursued.
As they scurry over a metal barrier, you can briefly see Disney Junior’s veterinarian, Doc McStuffins, top down with her cubicle.
Pumbaa (The Lion King), praying mantis (Kung Fu Panda 3) and BOB (Monsters vs Aliens)
Seth Rogen’s cinematic universe finally collides in one brief moment. Once the Chipmunks get the best out of Bob, he’s knocked out for the live-action Pumbaa dressing room The Lion King (2019). Pumbaa pokes fun at his “weird dead eyes” and immediately two other Seth Rogen-voiced characters, Mantis from the Kung Fu Panda Films and Benzoates Ostylezene Bicarbonate from monsters vs Aliens, seems to make Seth Rogen laugh… Seth Rogen. Dreamworks Animation and Disney, former enemies, bury the hatchet for the joke’s sake. It’s not exactly every animation fan’s dream, Mickey Mouse and Bugs Bunny, but seeing these two studios coexist is a major accomplishment. If Mantis, Pumbaa, and BOB can all appear at once, maybe The Big Four’s (aka Rise of the Brave Tangled Dragons) can come. Hey, a 2012 tumblr boi as I can dream, ok?!
McGruff the crime dog
In a scene set at the LA Police Station, you can see the most popular animated crime dog, McGruff, in the background of the phone. It’s been over 40 years (280 in dog years) since his first appearance and he doesn’t look a day older than 30.
detective florez Big mouth
In another scene, set at the LA police station, Detective Florez plays Big mouth appears in the background. It’s pretty crazy how many adult animated characters appear in a Disney movie.
Peter – Goof Squad
During the film’s climax, Chip and Dale must escape from a mutilated Sweet Pete. In pursuit, they find his bootleg film studio. As they progress through various sets, legendary Disney antagonist Pete appears, starring in one Aladdin Knockoff, riding the magic carpet. Unlike the other toons in the studio, he is not mangled and yells at the chipmunks to get out of the way.
Chris Parnell – Saturday night live
Nothing beats a cameo from a Lonely Island friend. Throughout the film, Dale thinks every call is from his agent, Dave Bollinari, hoping it’s for a new role to take on. When he finally calls, Bollinari is being played by none other than Parns himself, Chris Parnell. If only the trailer hadn’t given away his appearance in the film, as it plays out as a great set-up for a satisfying cameo for Lonely Island fans.
Darkwing duck – Darkwing duck
In a brief post-credits scene, Darkwing Duck (voiced by Jim Cummings) appears in his booth at a convention center and watches as the Rescue Rangers take center stage. He boos them and breaks the fourth wall, causing the viewer to chant, “We want Darkwing!” It’s alright Darkwing, your time will come. Seth Rogen has plans for you soon.
