scary squirrel world BEFORE TUFTY THERE WAS

As most Patriots know, at the head of today's bushytail horde, the Squirrel Enforcement Army, is the infamous Tufty the Traffic Safety Squirrel.

Tufty burst upon the scene in the 1960's with his Tufty Club and it's manifesto of terror (see link below). But who preceded Tufty?

IN 1947, CHIP CHIP THE CHIPMUNK LIVED WITH HIS FATHER, MR. CHIPMUNK AND HIS TWO BROTHERS, CHAP CHAP AND CHOP CHOP.

AS A SINGLE PARENT, MR. CHIPMUNK HAD HIS HANDS FULL. CHAP CHAP AND CHOP CHOP WERE OBEDIENT CHIPPYS, BUT CHIP CHIP WAS BAD FROM BIRTH. BAD BECAUSE HE WOULDN'T LEARN WHATEVER IT IS THAT CHIPMUNKS NEED TO KNOW.

"UGH, I HATE SCHOOL LESSONS!" DECLARED CHIP CHIP. SO HE DROPPED OUT AND SET ABOUT TRYING TO TAKE OVER THE FOREST.

UNFORTUNATELY FOR CHIP CHIP, HE WAS ABOUT AS BRIGHT AS A BURNED-OUT LIGHT BULB. BEFORE HE CAN EVEN TAKE A SWIPE AT POWER, HE RUNS SMACK DAB INTO A MOUNTAINBILLY WITH A GUN, A STRUGGLE ENSUES, AND CHIP CHIP, GETTING THE WORSE OF IT, TRIES TO HIDE IN THE MOUNTAINBILLY'S COFFEE POT.

OF COURSE, THE MOUNTAINBILLY SPIES CHIP CHIP LEAPING INTO THE POT. HOWEVER, RATHER THAN BOILING UP SOME CHIPMUNK SOUP, THE HAYSEED STICKS HIS HAND INTO THE COFFEEPOT, CHIP CHIP BITES HIM, AND HE FALLS BACKWARDS INTO HIS OWN CAMPFIRE...

CHIP CHIP'S INCENDIARY CONFRONTATION WITH THE MOUNTAINBILLY CURED HIM OF THE DESIRE FOR CONQUEST. HE RETURNED TO HIS LESSONS. LATER, HE AND HIS BROTHERS APPLIED FOR WORK WITH WALT DISNEY PRODUCTIONS IN ANAHIEM, CALIFORNIA.

WALT HIRED CHAP CHAP AND CHOP CHOP AS A WACKY CHIPMUNK DUO FOR A SERIES OF CARTOONS IN WHICH A PANTLESS DUCK IS TORTURED INTO MADNESS.

HOWEVER, DISNEY HAD NO USE FOR THE TALENTLESS CHIP CHIP.

CHIP CHIP SUPPOSEDLY FOUND WORK AS A GAFFER AT THE PARAMOUNT STUDIOS IN HOLLYWOOD. HOWEVER, HIS CURRENT WHEREABOUTS IS UNKNOWN...
