in 1943 by Walt Disney Productions. Their names are based off the last name of
the famous 18th century British cabinet maker, Thomas Chippendale. They aren’t part of the fab 5 but they’re
definitely some of the original characters that were seen in the park when Disneyland
first opened in 1955. Now before we go any further there’s probably
a lot of you that don’t know the difference between Chip and Dale, so we’ll break it
down. Chip: he has a black nose, like a chocolate
chip cookie, and has one tooth. Dale on the other hand has a dark red nose
and two spaced out teeth. Today he’d definitely need braces. He also has a little bit of hair on the top
of his head, cause you know he’s cool like that So now that we have that out of the way, today
we’re gonna be looking at the history of Chip and Dale in the Disney Parks and the
fails and falls that have come with the characters. So here are the top 10 Chip and Dale Character
Fails and Falls. Number 10- The 50s and 60s
When Disneyland first opened in 1955 a majority of the character costumes were borrowed from
the Disney Ice Capades show, including the Chip and Dale costumes. Considering its 1955, they don’t look too
bad compared to some of the other characters. Its a pretty close resemblance to the scale
and look of the characters in the original Disney animated shorts. Now fast forward to 1960. At this time, Disney designed their own versions
of Chip and Dale which were a downgrade and a fail, to say the least, because they look
nothing like their cartoon characters. They’re actually kinda scary looking, and
I don’t blame this kid here for freaking out. The Ice Capades costume was much more accurate
at representing the chipmunks, but Disney used this 1960 version for 8 years until 1968. Number 9- The Giant Rodents
In 1968 Disney created an updated version of Chip and Dale with much larger heads and
eyes that resembled the cartoon characters a bit better but they definitely weren’t
perfect. The head proportions were a bit too big and
made the characters pretty tall. When you think of Chip and Dale from the animated
shorts you think of these small little cute rambunctious characters, not these giants
rodents. So again, in a sense this design was a fail
by Disney but, these versions of the Chipmunks were still used for 13 years until 1981, when
they evolved even further into the current look we know today. The current look has been used for the past
36 years, and they’ve been seen in every Disney park across the world from Disneyland
to Walt Disney World to the Tokyo Disney Resort. The only recent update Chip and Dale have
received has been in 2008 when the articulated talking versions were used in the holiday
stage shows at Magic Kingdom. They have fuzzier cheeks and Dale now has
the hair on his head like he has in the cartoons. Although these updates look great and should
be used on a regular basis in the park, they only get used for stage shows and promo events. Now like we said Chip and Dale’s look has
definitely changed over the years but one thing that seems to have remained the same
is the energized characterization given to these characters in the park. Which can be seen here in these old videos. Today it seems like Chip and Dale have even
more energy especially at the overseas parks, Which leads us to our next set of clips. Number 8
Now this highly energetic energy overseas leads to one thing though, Chip and Dale falling
over…a lot. Most of the falls come from the Tokyo Disney
Parks, like the last two clips you just saw, and there’s more where those came from
as well. Number 7
A Table is Waiting performed daily at the American Waterfront’s Columbia Harbour at
Tokyo DisneySea, until it closed March 17, 2017. The show used Chip and Dale to sing a song
called My Tacos is Wonderful. Grammatically its not correct at all, but
you know things get lost in translation so we’ll just go with it. In this clip Chip gets ready to sing his big
solo in the song and then…well you’ll see. And the
great thing about Chip and Dale being a pair is that whenever one of them falls the other
always reacts like, oh there goes crazy chip again. Number 6
We’re still in Tokyo, but this time we’re looking at Minnie oh Minnie. Its a show thats performed daily in Adventureland
at Tokyo Disneyland with the star being, well Minnie Mouse. In the finale of the show, all the characters
rush up the platforms and are supposed to freeze on stage while the curtain goes down. Since they don’t use the articulated heads
in this show, when they freeze it just looks weird but….anyway. Keep an eye on Dale. To be fair those platforms look very narrow,
but at least he froze after he recovered Number 5
It’s Showtime was a variety show at Tokyo Disneyland that included guests but starred
Chip and Dale in some sort of quest to keep a gold acorn or something. Not really sure what’s happening in the
clips, kinda hard to understand. It’s also really bizarre hearing Howdy proceeded
by someone speaking Japanese See Anyway, it seems like Dale, just can’t catch
a break and finds himself on the floor once again. Number 4
This time we’re heading on over to Disneyland Paris and taking a look at The Disney Dance
Express! It’s pretty much the Paris version of the
Move it, Shake it, Celebrate it street party at Magic Kingdom and uses a recycled float
from a 1998 parade. So its pretty much the Paris version of Magic
Kingdom’s once excessively over used castle float. This show features a bunch of dancers and
Disney Characters including Chip and Dale, who like we said earlier, have a lot of energy
in the show. This time Chip is the victim and if someone
said he was trying to slide into home base or someone’s DMs, we’d totally believe
you. Number 3
We’re heading back over to Tokyo at DisneySea. During the spring season, DisneySea has a
show called Welcome to Spring (its a very creative title). At the end of the show Mickey, Minnie, Duffy
and ShellieMay leave on a boat with Chip and Dale running after it to say bye. You probably get where this is going, but
Dale doesn’t just fall, he also gets a good little beating from his good pal Chip. Number 2
The Legend of Mythica was a water show at DisneySea that played for 8 years and closed
in Sept 2014. If you’ve been counting, this is going to
be Dale’s 5th fall and in this one he totally face plants right into the pavement, but brushes
himself back up and gets on the boat before it leaves without him. Number 1- Dale! Poor, Dale. We’re closing this off with another clip
from Minnie, oh Minnie! These platforms definitely have to be too
narrow if Dale keeps falling. Wonder how many other times he’s fallen
off this exact same platform that weren’t caught on camera. So what did you think of Chip and Dale’s
old costumes, and do you have a funny memory or experience with Chip and Dale at the Parks? If you do feel free to leave a comment! If you have any of your own videos from the

  1. I have a funny experience with chip and dale so what happened was I was in animal kingdom and they where in the middle of pictures and stuff like that but than one of them ran of for no reason and the other one followed it was one of the funniest things I have ever experienced

    Kinda wish I'd met Chip and Dale instead. 8,T

  5. Don't forget that Chip and Dale were awkward and clumsy in their cartoon shorts as well, falling and tripping over things in comedic ways.

  6. One of my favorite things about Disney costume characters is the fact that, when they fall, other characters make sure they are okay, then get right back in character, making the fall seem intentional.

  7. I remember someone saying something about the costumes being hard to see in, thus causing many of the falls. I can't remember if they were, at one time, someone who wore the costume or if they had that information from someone else.

  8. 7:18 He looks like he really did get hurt after he fell. He puts his hand over his eye which is their signal for they need help.

  15. When I was at Disneyland chip Chip and Dale were laughing at my joke but then he fell and Kip was sad because when he tripped his helmet light flight so it could fall off but it actually fell off and reveal the character who was under it but it was another costume of Chippendales really weird I just wanted you to know that

  16. When I went to Disney world I told a cast members โ€œI donโ€™t know who you are or where youโ€™ve been but I will find youโ€ then they start laughing XD

  17. Hello! I really enjoy your channel and videos. I am half a Japanese and I appreciate how much Tokyo Disney Resort is in it. I usually donโ€™t see this much love even if itโ€™s fails. I have great support to this channel so please keep to good work up!

  18. Chip and Dale interactions are my favorites – I wish I had more video of them from the 90s when they were Rescue Rangers! — K

  19. chip and dale traumatised me as a child… i was terrified of the mascot costumes and mickey had already snuck up behind me and scared me so i was wandering through the eurodisney park with my dad when he beckoned them over. one of them stroked my cheek and i just froze and sobbed harder whilst both of them shrugged at my dad.

  20. I have pictures from when I was a baby meeting Chip and Dale and I always looked happy. Then the other day I was looking through old photos and I found a picture of me with Dale while crying. My mom said that I was running to see Chip and then I face planted so I just cried while meeting them.

  21. Chip and Dale are my favourite Disney characters! I have plushies of them and all their movie DVDs. I even have pictures with them when I was at Disneyland

  22. Tokyo always has the best fails… Go hand and hand, with the goddess of adventureLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAnd… chip and dale fell down again.

  23. Oh my god does 7:22 actually look somewhat violent to people from other countries?? In japan, jokingly hitting people is a big part of humor, we mostly do it when somebody else makes a mistake or something. To us, itโ€™s very funny, but I never considered what that might look like to foreigners.

  24. I remember when I was running up to see chip and dale on the Disney dream cruise ship and I literally jumped on chip and completely knocked him over๐Ÿ˜‚ I felt so bad but he just brushed himself off and gave me a huge hug ๐Ÿค—

  25. I went to chip and dales garden grill and I only had a dale hat so chip got a napkin and coulered in a circle to make a black nose and stuck it on my hat

  26. The ones at Disneyland Paris can be really naughty, like chip once took a tray from a resturant we were eating at and threw it over wall, whilst being shouted at by the staff memeber who was supposed to be watching over the two of them.

  27. I find it funny that you call Chip Dale's friend. I often thought they're brothers as they do argue with each other a lot but will work together and bury the hatchet at the end.
