Chip an' Dale is a Donald Duck short released 28 November 1947.


Donald Duck is staying in a rustic winter cabin. He wakes up freezing after a heavy snow. Finding the firewood box empty, he goes outside to collect some, and chops down a small topped tree which happens to be the winter home of two chipmunks, Chip and Dale, who follow him back to the cabin. After Donald places the log in the fireplace, they try to retrieve their nuts from it, but Donald lights it to warm himself. The chipmunks sneak in behind his back, extinguish the fire, and blatantly carry the log out of the cabin in front of Donald. Bemused, Donald lifts their burden as they continue to march out the door.

The chipmunks later climb the roof and throw snowballs down the chimney in order to extinguish Donald's fire. Donald climbs up the chimney, rolls the chipmunks into a snowball and rolls them off the roof.

Chip climbs a steep hill directly in front of the front door of Donald's cabin and rolls a snowball down the hill. As the snowball rolls down the hill, it gets bigger and gains momentum. Dale knocks on the door to get Donald to answer. When Donald opens the door, the massive snowball hits.

Chip and Dale then retrieve their log, and as they are leaving, Dale takes the opportunity to kick Donald's exposed rear as he is helplessly embedded in the snow.
