Zipper is a little fly character from the animated series Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers. A running gag in the series is that he is often mistaken for an alien whenever he gets big or switches bodies with a human.
Zipper was voiced by both Corey Burton (who also voices Dale) and Frank Welker, Burton does the speaking voice while Welker does the sound of Zipper's wings flapping. He was introduced with Monterey Jack in the five-part origin story "To the Rescue".
Zipper is a brave, friendly, tough, spunky, and loyal fly. He is shown to be very close best friends with Monterey Jack most of the time.
Zipper spent much of his life traveling the world with Monterey Jack. He joined the Rescue Rangers after Monterey's home was destroyed by Fat Cat in an event that gave Monty a grudge against him that is strangely not brought up again anywhere else in the series.
Zipper is the only member of the Rangers not to speak much other than to make squeaky chirps. He is the smallest of the Rangers.
Despite the smallest of the group, Zipper serves as big help for the group. He can be quick to anger, often forcing the others to keep him out of trouble. He hates seeing his friends in trouble. Zipper is often seen traveling with Monterey Jack and sharing his opinions, facts, ideas, and ironically, his pain. Whenever Monterey suffers cheese attacks, Zipper proves to be tougher on him while talking him down. His special talent is mostly flight and lock-picking.
