From Ryan :

This is the only Chip and Dale vs. Pete cartoon. In it, Pete portrays an outlaw who has recently robbed the bank of a small Western town. He hides the money in Chip and Dale's tree. Although I don't really care much for Chip and Dale cartoons, I found this one to be a little funny. At least they were harassing the "bad guy" rather than an innocent victim like Donald or Pluto.

From Rohan :

Two chipmunks and one beloved Disney shorts villain make for cartoon hilarity.

From Baruch Weiss :

Nicely well done short.

From Christian :

I agree with Ryan. It is a good thing that Pete is the victim in this one rather than Donald or Pluto. This is definitely one of my favorite shorts.

From Bryan Hensley :

I discovered this short here on the Internet. If there was ever a Funny Factory volume all about Chip 'n' Dale, this short would've been in it! Believe it or not, it was a part of their own series as late as 1954! Near the beginning, someone put up a poster about Black Pete, and Chip accidentally ripped a hole at the head. Dale thought his own best friend was an outlaw! What would chipmunks want with $10,000 anyway? (Even in 1954, it was still before Alvin and the Chipmunks!) At least they found out who the real outlaw was, before Chip thought Dale went "nuts", and they ended up driving Pete crazy! (Right up until the cavalry shows up!) It was hilarious when Dale tried imitating a gun! Pete tried shooting at them, and he about killed them both times! (Once by a gun-powder cigarette Chip 'n' Dale had made together!) Whether it's on a rare home video or here on the Internet, I hope you enjoy this old Western tale of The Lone Chipmunks! It was the only time I know of that they took on a bad guy, such as Pete!

From Mike :

This is one of Chip 'n' Dale's funniest cartoons. The funniest part is when they make Pete run into the frying pan and he ends up with eggs and bacon on his face. Truly a classic.
