one of 50's Disney's masterworks
What's the conflict here? Pretty simple: Chip and Dale have a nightclub near them and, more specifically, a pretty girl chipmunk named Clarice singing there, and they each want her. So they both act like they don't want her, then act like it's time to go the bed, and then, well, there's total rivalry head-butting chipmunk madness with gags. It's a constant stream of them once they start, and they all work, not one misses, and yet the key ingredient here is charm: this is a delightful piece of art (yes, art) that has two characters in a duel that starts ugly and then becomes charmingly silly and stupid as it goes on (duelling instrument playing with Chip on piano and Dale on upright bass for Clarice's big number).
I've seen this cartoon dozens of times, and if you're wanting to introduce your child to Chip 'N' Dale from when they were being produced by THE Walt Disney, this is the one to start with. If they don't take to it, well, don't bother with the others! (Well, except Applecore, that's the other must-see). It's charm on parade whether you love these characters or not.
