  • One of the true highlights of the series, and possibly the only real Chip focused episode.

    10
    "Seer No Evil", along with "Good Times, Bat Times" and "Adventures in Squirrelsitting" is my favourite episode of all time in the CDRR series.



    While it was mostly a children's show, and most episodes aren't that engaging from an adult's perspective, this mysterious and dark story about a gypsy moth's predictions on Chip still ranks up high on my favourite cartoon list.



    The storytelling here is brilliant. You can't expect at the start of the cartoon that this won't be a happy ride on the carnival. While Cassandra's (who apparently is a greek mythological character gifted with seeing the future) early predictions that came true on Monty, Gadget and Dale aren't that interesting, the atmosphere got really dark and mysterious when everything Cassy said about Chip become reality, and the skeptical chipmunk have to face his final doom. The substory of the crook carnival operator, and his monkey Abbadabba is also well made, and a bit more realistic than the usual CDRR crime.



    When the trunk falled on Chip, everyone looked devastated. That was one of the biggest moments of the entire show. The ending was very satisfying as well when Gadget hugged Chip, and the crooks got what they deserve.



    Seer no Evil is an episode for both the fans of the rangers, and for casual viewers as well. My rating: 10/10moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Although Chip says that Cassandra was wrong about her predictions when he survives the adventure, Cassandra was right on all of them. Like Gadget said, she did not mean the elephant's trunk, but the pirates trunk. "then, all is darkness" must have been seen by her from Chip's position who was hiding in a probably dark hole in the floorboard. The slashing throat motion and noise was mimicked from Abbadabba, who did the same, probably having noticed the trunk falling towards Chip or believing the Rangers inside would die from that fall. Finally, when Dale and Chip see Cassandra again to confirm what she saw, Dale exclaims Chip is his best friend. Cassandra replies that she saw that to. This means she saw what happened after Chip was rescued from his hole when Dale pounced on him calling Chip his best friend. Why Cassandra did not realize this meant Chip was still alive after all or why she withheld that part from the Rangers is unknown. Perhaps she did not even consider that everyone thought it would end fatally.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Dale: I know! First, let us ride the cosmic jackhammer, then we'll go on the jerk 'n whirl!
      Chip: Sure, just as soon as my stomach gets off from that last ride!

    • Gadget: (About the rollercoaster) If they had straightened the angle out on that last curve, we'd have seen some real speed!
      Chip: That fake speed was plenty enough for me, Gadget!

    • Chip: I have a prediction for you.
      Monty: Chip?
      (Monty pushes the trunk reveling a hole in the floor)
      Chip: I predict I'm never going to a fortune teller ever again.

    • (Cassandra's prediction)

      Cassandra: Before the next sun rises, Chip will follow a bear with two tails, who will dance with a tiger . . .
      Chip: A what? With who?
      Cassandra: He will fall from a circle of light and only a flying horse can save him. Finally, he will walk under an elephant and the trunk will fall and . . .
      Rangers in unison: And . . .? And . . .?
      Cassandra: (pretends to cut her own throat) Then, all is darkness!
