2022’s Dale no longer talks to that sped-up, squeaky chipmunk voice, though Corey Burton, Dale’s voice throughout the late ‘80s run of the series, does provide that classic high-pitched dialogue for a nostalgic moment or two.

Who much better to voice such an accountable chipmunk than John Mulaney? Hair MacNeille, maybe, who offered the high-pitched voice of Chip formerly, and went back to repeat the function of Device.

His voice work is strong, having actually voiced the preferred Spider-Ham in Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse and a starring character in Netflix’s Big Mouth.

Will Arnett as Sugary Food Pete
There’s absolutely nothing “sweet” about Pete, the criminal activity employer behind all the animation disappearances. As the boy who never ever matured, audiences enjoyed him, however as quickly as he struck adolescence, Peter Pan was discarded, no longer beneficial to the movie studio he’d made abundant. Middle-aged and not rather fitting into his outfit like he utilized to, this Peter is grizzled and negative.

J.K. Simmons as Captain S. Putty
