Chip n’ Dale: Rescue Rangers was a movie that not many were expecting to be so filled with insanely clever pop culture references, some that even the top easter egg hunters had difficulty finding.

From randomly showcasing Zack Snyder’s Batman fighting against ET (1982) to featuring a grown Peter Pan, it’s clear that Disney gave writers Dan Gregor and Doug Mand complete control over their wacky cameos and more.

So in this universe, Scott Lang/Ant-Man was almost the aunt charmer!

More about Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers

In Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers, Chip and Dale are living amongst cartoons and humans in modern-day Los Angeles, but their lives are quite different now. It has been decades since their successful television series was canceled, and Chip (voice of Mulaney) has succumbed to a life of suburban domesticity as an insurance salesman. Dale (voice of Sandberg), meanwhile, has had CGI surgery and works the nostalgia convention circuit, desperate to relive his glory days. When a former castmate mysteriously disappears, Chip and Dale must repair their broken friendship and take on their Rescue Rangers detective personas once again to save their friend’s life.
