"For the last set I found it really helpful when someone posted a review containing a list of the episodes included, so I thought I'd extend the same courtesy myself:
Disc 1 contains the original multi-part pilot episode "To The Rescue" as well as
*A Creep In the Deep - a deranged fish vows declares war on the human race and vows to free captive fish everywhere
*Normie's Science Project - Normie uses his Uncle Nimno's record player which uses sound to disintegrate objects as a science project
*Seer No Evil - Chip gets a morbid prediction from a psychic at a carnival
*Chipwrecked Shipmunks - The Rangers are wrecked on a tropical island and meet once again with the Pi-Rats, who are looking for a treasure that Monterey and Dale have already found
*When Mice Were Men - The Rangers to go Mexico when Monterey gets a call for help from old friends of his; they are under attack by a giant bull with a personal vendetta against Monterey
*Chocolate Chips - The Rangers vacation in South America where a German man is using zombies to dig up the cacao trees and make chocolate. All of the Rangers except Dale are turned into zombies themselves, and he must save the day and the other Rangers.
*The Last Leprechan - The Rangers go to Ireland where they meet the last leprechan who is being hunted by a Banshee who wants his magical pot of Gold (One of my personal favorites)
*Weather Or Not - The other Rangers think Monterey is crazy when his weather-indicating tail keeps predicting snow; however, Monterey's tail is out of whack because Nimnoe has created a weather machine and is using it rob banks and jewelry shops.
*One Upsman-Chip - Chip and Dale compete to see who can outwit the other last ("Gotcha last!") when Chip gets too competitive and Dale ends up in Fat Cat's clutches.
*Shell Shocked - The Rangers vacation at a beach from which all the shells are conspicuously missing; Fat Cat is using them to simulate the sound of the ocean and attract fish.
*Love Is A Many Splintered Thing - Monterey's old flame Desiree returns, but is still using Monterey and working for a bad badger crime boss.
*Song of the Night'n'Dale - The Rangers end up in China where they find an Emperor whose sister is going to elaborate methods to convince him that he is crazy.
*Double 'O' Chipmunks - After hurting Dale's feelings, the other Rangers indulge him in his James Bond fantasies and dupe him into thinking that he is solving a case in which he must deliver microfilm. While the Rangers originally gave Dale a regular undeveloped roll of vacation photos, it gets swapped for real microfilm that is being hunted by rat thugs for their evil scientist boss.
*Gadget Goes Hawaiian - While the Rangers vacation in Hawaii, Gadget meets Louwhiney, who looks just like her. Louwhiney tricks Gadget into running survival tests for her, and Gadget learns that she has to choose one plan and stick with it.
*It's A Bird, It's Insane, It's Dale! - Dale finds a piece of Meteor that gives him superpowers but the other half is found by a criminal who steals world monuments and frames Dale.
*Short Order Crooks - Two thugs try to rob a bank through the diner next door, but the Rangers, mistaking them for average Joes, try to help them by making Monterey's famous cheese chowder.
*Mind Your Cheese and Qs - Monterey's cheese craving finally catch up with him and he must overcome them in order to save his friends from Rat Capone, who is hoarding all the cheese in town.
*Out of Scale - Chip and Dale are captured by infamous crime boss Ratso Ratskywatsky who gives them as pets to his spoiled daughter Buffy.
*Dirty Rotten Diapers - The Rangers try to bust a criminal who looks like a baby and has set up a series of robberies through a fake adoption agency.
I can only hope Disney will finish off the series with another set soon!"
Here is Volume 2, Rescue Rangers Away!

"Arriving with Volume 2 of Chip "N" Dale Rescue Rangers is episodes 28-51 of the series. Included this time is the 5 episode plot, which gives the origins of the Rescue Rangers. Overall there are 24 episodes in this volume, 3 less than the first wave.
Volume 2 has some of the best episodes from the series, but the pilot series is quite frankly enough reason on its own to purchase the volume. Some highlighted episodes include; Gadget goes Hawaiian, Out of Scale, Chipwrecked Shipmunks, Shell Shocked, and A Creep in the Deep. Those are just a few of the classic episodes in this volume.
Devoid of extras once again, however there was a flyer for The Adventures of the Gummi Bears on DVD in the case, but that is all. Still the price is right for many solid episodes and I suggest to any fan of the series or Chip "N" Dale fan to buy this one right away."
Great cartoon, No-Frills DVD collection

"I'll review three things here: the show, the DVD content, and the packaging:
The Show - While not exactly brand new, CDRR is a very good series. As opposed to cartoons today, it didn't feel the need to be explicitly educational. It also doesn't have 1.4 kadrillion product tie-ins to tempt the kids. And, once you get over the improbable stuff, it's fun for an adult (or at least me) to watch. The 5 rescue rangers have their distinct personalities that work very well together and the gags are funny even when you see them coming. Think of a less spooky "Scooby-Doo" where the crime solvers have real personalities and a little MacGyver thrown in. One more mark in its favor is that it deals with some serious themes at times, such as loyalty and integrity.
The DVD content - They have the "second" 24 episodes and...that's it. Seriously, there's no other content on there except a few Disney previews and some menus based on the show. The audio/video is certainly good enough for the kids to watch. The episodes include the original movie-length pilot broken into 5 episodes.
The packaging - Again, no frills here. I like that they are thin cases and are fairly clearly labeled. The front cover art is nice. There are scenes on the backs of the cases that are screen shots from the episodes inside.
Overall - The show by itself is good enough to recommend a purchase and 4 stars. The lack of extras on the DVD's prevents me from rating it higher.

"I was born in '86 so my memories of this show were limited to say the least but If nothing else I can honestly say that it stands the test of time very well."
