  • Chip 'n' Dale are two fictional, animated chipmunks created by The Walt Disney Company. Their names are a pun based on the name "Chippendale."

    According to Disney, Chip is the logical schemer, and Dale is the dumb schemer. An easy way to visually tell them apart is that Chip has a small black nose and one centered protruding tooth, whereas Dale has a big red nose and his two prominent canines exposed.
