The following is a list of episodes of Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers.

The first 13 episodes premiered on the Disney Channel in the spring of 1989, with the first produced episode, "Catteries Not Included", originally airing as a preview on August 27, 1988.

In the fall of 1989, the series was syndicated from September 18. When the show moved to daily syndication, it premiered with a two-hour movie special, "To the Rescue", which was later broken up into five parts for the weekday run. Although it illustrates how the Rescue Rangers became a team, and was chronologically "first" in the fiction of the show, it ironically was not the first episode produced.

The last five episodes were held over from the previous season and were not aired until the fall of 1990 on The Disney Afternoon programming block.
