Just when you thought it was safe to re-visit you childhood memories, it has been announced that Disney is looking to create a big screen version of the cartoon favorite “Chip ‘N’ Dale Rescue Rangers.” The revival comes after the studio bought a pitch from award-winning commercial director Robert Rugan for a live action film. It is proposed that the film will be an origin story for the “Rescue Rangers.”

The cartoon, which ran for three seasons beginning in 1989 on The Disney Channel and then syndication, followed the beloved Disney characters Chip ‘N’ Dale as they began helping other animal clients solve mysteries. Their crime solving team was rounded out with a pair of mice, the cheese loving Monterey Jack and the female handy-mouse Gadget. The planned adaptation will be live action, following in the footsteps of “Alvin and the Chipmunks” and “The Smurfs.”

Chip ‘N Dale first appeared in Disney cartoon shorts in 1943. During their early career they were often seen as foils for Mickey’s best friends Pluto and Donald. Before the “Rescue Rangers,” Chip ‘N’ Dale appeared in 22 cartoon shorts.
