Chip ‘N Dale: Rescue Rangers: What to watch if you liked the Disney+ movie
To absolutely no one’s surprise, Tic and Tac: Rescue Rangers arrived on Disney+ in May 2022 and became an instant hit with those who grew up watching the show the hilarious animation/live-action hybrid was based on, as well as young audiences (even if they don’t didn’t get all the jokes). I know this because it was the case in my house: my wife and I loved all the jokes, the pop culture references and the abundance of amazing Easter eggs, and my kids loved the visuals, the story and, of course, Ugly Sonic (who was admittedly loved by everyone in my family).
And, after the credits, I immediately started thinking about movies like Tic and Tac: Rescue Rangers that I would like to see again or present to my children. So, I started putting together a list of titles and started figuring out how I could watch them, and I ended up coming up with a pretty remarkable list of movies that feature some elements of the new Disney+ movie that I enjoyed it so much. Here are a few now…
Who Framed Roger Rabbit? (Disney+)
Private detective Eddie Valiant (Bob Hoskins), who is not a fan of the cartoons or their goofy characters, reluctantly agrees to track down Jessica Rabbit (Kathleen Turner), who is said to be sleeping with her husband, Roger Rabbit (Charles Fleischer) . But when Jessica’s alleged lover is murdered, the grumpy detective tries to protect the cartoon star from false accusations.
Robert Zemeckis’ groundbreaking 1988 live-action/animated hybrid film, Who Framed Roger Rabbit? is the first movie that came to mind when I heard of Tic and Tac: Rescue Rangers, and it’s not because the main character is in the trailer for the new film. It has more to do with having all those third-party cartoon characters featured throughout the film, as well as his incredible sense of humor.
The Lego Movie (Amazon rental)
Emmet Brickowski (Chris Pratt) is just a normal, everyday Lego figure who is the opposite of what you would call special. But everything changes when the nondescript construction worker attaches himself to the Piece of Resistance, a powerful Lego brick that could save the world from Lord Business (Will Ferrell) and his destructive super weapon “Kragile”.
Written and directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, The Lego Movie was one of the biggest box office surprises of 2014, but after watching the animated film, it’s easy to see why it resonated with audiences of all ages. It has that same blend of self-referential humor and dazzling animation that Tic and Tac: Rescue Rangers, and also features an incredibly catchy song (“Everything is Awesome) written by The Lonely Island, whose members include Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone.
Wreck-It Ralph (Disney+)
After years of always being the bad guy in the Fix it Felix video game, Wreck-It Ralph (John C. Reilly) embarks on a one-villain mission to become the hero of his own story and change the digital world’s perception of what it means to be a good guy. But in doing so, he opens the door for an even bigger and badder foe to take over.
Ralph’s Wrecks has many similarities with Tic and Tac: Rescue Rangers, including an abundance of characters from multiple franchises (video games instead of cartoons, in this case), a fun and upbeat story that adults and kids alike will enjoy, and an incredible message about second chances and the ability to seize the moment. ‘opportunity.
Last Action Hero (Netflix)
There’s no bigger fan of hero cop Jack Slater (Arnold Schwarzenegger) than Danny Madigan (Austin O’Brien), a young boy who obsessively watches all of his new movies. After receiving a magic ticket, Danny finds himself in the middle of the action in Jack Slater IV, right next to his longtime hero. However, just as Danny entered the fictional world, his characters, including the villainous Benedict (Charles Dance), can also enter his world.
East Last Action Hero a great movie? It depends on your taste. Is it a fun movie? You bet! John McTiernan’s hilarious, action-packed 1993 meta-comedy of big-budget blockbusters is fully self-aware, which only adds to its charm. As the story told in Tic and Tac: Rescue Rangersit’s heavy, outrageously silly, and never takes itself too seriously.
Space Jam (1996)
A greedy alien theme park owner hatches a plan to kidnap Bugs Bunny and the rest of the Looney Tunes gang to use as his new attraction, but will back down if the iconic cartoon characters can defeat his all-star team known as the name of The Monstars (who have the talent stolen from the NBA’s brightest stars). Just when all hope seems lost, Bugs comes up with a plan that involves bringing Michael Jordan out of retirement.
While not the best film to feature animated, live-action characters, Joe Pytka’s 1996 smash hit, spacejam, is still great fun, and not just for 90s kids. It’s not as wild or expansive as Tic and Tac: Rescue Rangersbut is loaded with pop culture references and heartfelt, unlike its 2021 sequel Space Jam: A New Legacy.

Sonic the Hedgehog (Paramount+)
Years after being magically transported to Earth from a distant planet, Sonic the Hedgehog (Ben Schwartz) finds himself on the run from the evil mad scientist Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey), who wants to use his power to take over the world.
If you’re like me and can’t get enough of “Ugly Sonic” in Tic and Tac: Rescue Rangerswhy not give sonic the hedgehog a round (no pun intended). The new Disney+ movie version is a parody of the original model revealed in the Sonic trailer in 2019. You know, the one that was met with fan backlash and caused the film to be delayed.
Shrek (First video)
In an attempt to get rid of all the fairy tale characters who have been forced to live in his swamp, Shrek (Mike Myers) strikes a deal with Lord Farquaad (John Lithgow) to find and rescue the villain’s bride-to-be, the Princess Fiona (Cameron Diaz). Accompanied by a tenacious (and annoying) donkey (Eddie Murphy), this ogre becomes the most unlikely of heroes.
The 2001 animated comedy inspired by Andrew Adamson and Vicky Jenson’s fairy tales broke new ground upon release and proved to be a hit with audiences of all ages. The humor, which pokes fun at everything from classic folk tales to modern movie franchises, has helped usher in a new era of meta-humor in animated films.
Pokémon Detective Pikachu (Amazon Rental)
After the disappearance of his father, police detective Tim Goodman (Judge Smith) teams up with his father’s former partner, Detective Pikachu (Ryan Reynolds) to shed light on his disappearance in chaotic Ryme City, a place where humans and Pokemon live. harmony.
As Tic and Tac: Rescue Rangersby Rob Letterman Pokémon Detective Pikachu has an incredibly heartfelt story hidden behind all the pop culture references, comedic banter, and dazzling visuals. The 2019 action-comedy also happens to be one of the best video game movies in recent memory.
The mask (Amazon rental)
Stanley Ipkiss (Jim Carrey) is an unlucky bank clerk and not much happens in his life, but his fortunes change when he comes into possession of a mysterious mask that transforms him into a living cartoon character and breathable. .
by Chuck Russell The maskwhich came out in the middle of Carrey’s ridiculously successful 1994 box office run (Ace Ventura: animal detective and Stupid and even dumber was also released that year) seamlessly blends the mayhem of old cartoons and cop shows with live-action drama, creating a unique cinematic experience that’s fun from top to bottom. And it still remains one of Carrey’s best films.
Chip ‘N Dale: Rescue Rangers (The Original Series) (Disney+)
And then there’s the original Tic and Tac: Rescue Rangers animated series that followed the titular chipmunks as they started their own detective agency alongside their friends Gadget Hackwrench, Monterey Jack, and Zipper. Over three seasons, the fearless band took on iconic villains like Fat Cat, Professor Norton Nimnul, and Rat Capone.
If you were interested in all the series references throughout the new Disney+ movie, you should jump in and give Tic and Tac: Rescue Rangers a shot.
Hope this all helps you create a nice marathon of titles to watch after watching. Tic and Tac: Rescue Rangersthe latest movie that will be added to the list of top Disney+ movies so far.
