Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers Surprises With Rick and Morty, The Simpsons Easter Eggs
Rick and Morty, The Simpsons, and many other surprising adult animated favorites have made their way into Chip 'n' Dale: Rescue Rangers through some surprising Easter Eggs, cameos, and nods! Fans might have seen an increase of major crossovers and multiverse like adventures in recent years, and it's been a pretty big deal for animation as well. Rick and Morty have already made some major theatrical cameos in the likes of Space Jam: A New Legacy, but now the famous duo along with the arguably most famous animated sitcom family ever, The Simpsons, have made their way into the new Chip 'n' Dale: Rescue Rangers reboot!
While many of the cameos from projects like South Park got full character recreations, it's a bit different for Rick and Morty and The Simpsons as their designs were used as the base for "bootleg" cartoons that served as the main overall crime investigated during Chip 'n' Dale: Rescue Rangers. Outside of a brief Pickle Rick costume this is it for Rick and Morty, but The Simpsons' cameo goes a bit further with a full "fake" production of it seen in progress. Check them out below as spotted by fans:

Chip 'n' Dale: Rescue Rangers is now streaming on Disney+, and if you're curious about what to expect, here's an excerpt from ComicBook.com's Charlie Ridgley's review (which you can find in full here), "When it comes to nostalgia, films and TV shows usually go one of two ways: they're either designed just to make fans of the original material feel good, or they're intent on making a statement about the culture that created this reboot craze in the first place. Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers is the unique movie that has its cheese and eats it, too, excelling in both regards to deliver a satirical thriller that's every bit sweet as it is scathing. This is the rare case where nostalgia can truly be a beautiful thing."
As for Rick and Morty, the first five seasons are now streaming on HBO Max and Hulu with a sixth season and anime spin-off series now in the works. The Simpsons is now streaming with Disney+ and Hulu with Season 34 of the series scheduled for a release this Fall. What do you think?
