I thought this was one of those knockoff cartoons people put on YouTube. I could not believe it was Disney. Very bizarre- not funny or appropriate at all for children. Chip and Dale were terrorizing each other, but not in a funny/teasing way- in a sick/twisted kind of way. Character interaction does not set a good example for children; there is no message or value.

So disappointing, with episode content well beyond its age rating

If you're reminiscing about the Chip and Dale of old and want your kids to enjoy this new version, think again. The episode "Bird Brain" was clearly inspired by horror movies. It concerned my kids enough they told me about the episode, which I thought was likely exaggerated, but wasn't. The level of fear, implied violence and gore is startling in it's tone and intent. Even the slapstick comedy isn't that funny or innocent the way the scenes play out. There are no good values displayed in this show at all.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (6 ):
Kids say (3 ):

Kids will enjoy the silly visual gags and slapstick humor in Chip 'n' Dale: Park Life. The simple storylines make the plots easy for kids to understand despite the lack of dialogue. Vincent Artaud's delightful musical score shines, and the modern Mary Blair-esque visual designs are super fun. Otherwise, grown-ups will probably find that the writing falls a bit flat since the stories mostly focus on getting easy laughs. Grown-ups may not appreciate Chip and Dale's example-setting: they frequently get into trouble and rarely suffer the consequences of their mayhem. While there's some humor that will hit the target age group perfectly, there are also some missed opportunities in this reboot.
