Chip 'n' Dale are a pair of rascally chipmunks who star in cartoons and comics produced by The Walt Disney Company. First appearing without names in the 1943 animated short Private Pluto, they went on to become recurring adversaries for Donald Duck and sometimes Pluto (and even Mickey Mouse on at least one occasion), including starring in a few Christmas cartoons with them. Originally designed as two identical chipmunks, the pair later became distinguishable in that Chip is the more serious one with a black nose, while Dale is the sillier one who has buck teeth and a red nose. In 1989, they also starred in their own animated television series, Chip 'n' Dale Rescue Rangers, though it never had a Christmas episode (however, a Chip 'n' Dale Rescue Rangers comic story set at Christmastime was published in the magazine Disney Adventures).

  • Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas - Chip and Dale have a prominent series of cameos in this direct-to-video film's first segment, "Stuck on Christmas". They are shown enjoying their new train set on Christmas morning; the shot of them enjoying said train is repeated multiple times, due to Huey, Dewey and Louie wishing that Christmas came every day. After quite a while of this, as Donald's nephews get sick of having Christmas every day, Huey throws a water balloon at Chip and Dale, freezing them in their tracks; the chipmunks respond by throwing a snowball at Huey. The next day, when the nephews decide to embrace the true Christmas spirit, they toss a bag of acorns to Chip and Dale. The day after that, the nephews see Chip tossing out his and Dale's Christmas tree, thus letting them know that they've finally broken the time loop.
  • Mickey's Magical Christmas: Snowed in at the House of Mouse - The chipmunks make a brief cameo in this direct-to-video spin-off of Disney's House of Mouse. Right after Pluto's Christmas Tree is shown, Chip and Dale pop out of a small artificial tree and catch Pluto's attention. Pluto starts barking at them, but, in a reprise of the closing gag from the preceding short, they slap a "Do not open till Christmas" sticker over his mouth.
