Why It Rocks
- The idea of having small animals solving mysteries is very interesting and amazing.
- It features Chip and Dale as crime fighters who form the Rescue Rangers that solve mysteries and stop villains while still keeping their usual personalities.
- Chip as the responsible, serious, dedicated leader of the Rescue Rangers.
- Dale as the laid-back, carefree, silly second-in-command of the Rescue Rangers.
- It was one of the best animated shows on The Disney Afternoon, along with Ducktales, Darkwing Duck, and Goof Troop.
- The gadgets and inventions that the Rescue Rangers use are very unique.
- Aside from Chip and Dale, Gadget Hackwrench, Monterey Jack, and Zipper are likable characters too.
- Gadget as the smart one of the group and is the crush of both Chip and Dale, especially Chip.
- Monterey Jack as the cheese-obsessed muscle of the group.
- Zipper as the green horsefly and friend and sidekick to Monterey Jack.
- Great soundtrack.
- Lots of action and fighting scenes.
- Great and memorable villains such as Fat Cat and Professor Nimnul.
- The villains are shown to be hilariously absurd with their diabolical plans.
- The theme song is great as it was performed by Jeff Pescetto who also did the theme songs for Ducktales and Darkwing Duck.
- Heartwarming moments such as the team caring for each other many times and Chip and Dale's affection for Gadget and how Gadget enters a relationship with Chip.
- It contains slapstick and funny gags like in the old shorts.
- It spawned a live-action movie in 2022.
- Like Darkwing Duck, the series ended too quickly.
- Some episodes, such as "Puffed Rangers", "To The Rescue", and "Song of the Night 'n Dale", contain outdated stereotypes on Asian (especially Chinese) people.
