I am a big kid at heart.

One of the most obvious manifestations of my childlike-ness is my love of animation, which began all the way back when, at it does for so many people, when I was a kid.

I have enormously fond memories of school holidays or Saturday mornings spent watching cartoon after cartoon, a lot of them either from Hanna-Barbera, Looney Tunes or Disney (though, being Australia, there was a lot of British programming too) and all of them still very fondly held in my heart.

So imagine my delight – go on, I’ll wait – when I found that two new programs were coming to small screens everywhere, one of them a nod to the evergreen fun of Hanna-Barbera and the other, a revival of two closely-bound characters whom I have always loved for their cheekiness and bravado.

It’s exciting news and both the trailers indicate a lot of manic hilarity is coming our way …

Chip ‘n’ Dale: Park Life follows two tiny troublemakers, Chip and Dale, trying to live the good life in a big city park while having giant-sized, sky-high adventures. Nervous worrier Chip and laid-back dreamer Dale make the perfect odd couple: they’re best buddies and they drive each other nuts. In their perpetual pursuit of acorns, these ultimate underdogs are joined by Pluto, Butch and other iconic Disney characters as they face down bullies great and small. (synopsis via Flickering Myth)
