After a 30-plus-year absence, Walt Disney's mischievous chipmunks, Chip and Dale, are returning to the little screen. Spurred by the success of "Ducktales," Disney's Buena Vista Television has announced plans for "Chip and Dale's Rescue Rangers," the company's second animated series created for first-run syndication. Except for a brief cameo in "Mickey's Christmas Carol" (1983), the cartoon chipmunks had been in hibernation since 1956, when their popular cartoon series with Donald Duck ended.

"Chip 'n' Dale: Rescue Rangers," which debuts on the Disney Channel Saturday at 9:30 a.m., is the least impressive animated series Disney has offered since it entered the television cartoon market in 1985. Like the successful "Ducktails," "Rescue Rangers" elevates minor characters from old theatrical cartoons to central roles.

And, now, without further ado, some winners in California Lawyer magazine's "Legal Follies 2006" issue: * In the nearly-foolproof-scheme category, a man was arrested in L.A. for counterfeiting after he was found with a stash of $1-billion bills. One clue that the currency was bogus: There ain't no such a thing as a billion-dollar bill.

For 26 years, they waged a war of epic proportions, doing battle all over Los Angeles County, spending more than $2 million in weaponry and leaving piles of the dead and dying in their wake. At one point, just a few years ago, it seemed there was no end in sight, but then the tide turned and this summer, the County Agriculture Commissioner's Noxious Weeds and Vertebrate Pests division declared victory. The war against the mighty alligator weed was won.

You can't tell the players without a scorecard, the expression goes. The late George Allen, the absent-minded coach of the L.A. Rams, could have been accused of needing the same for his family members. His daughter Jennifer's funny new memoir, "Fifth Quarter," recalls a time when Allen mistook his own wife for a fan after a game. "You'll have to get to the back of the line if you want an autograph, Miss," he told her.

Arms buildups seem to be in the news these days. For instance, the police log of USC's Daily Trojan newspaper carried a report of "students at the Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity house firing potatoes from a tube-launcher into an adjacent parking lot." Security officers said "the matter would be referred to Student Judicial Affairs and Community Standards and cleared the location." A cease-fire was arranged.

It was just one of those weird coincidences. A bomb threat was called in to the courthouse in San Fernando recently, and soon afterward a bag was spotted under a bench in front of the building. The building was locked down, and while everyone awaited the arrival of explosives experts, a man inside the court approached one of the officers and said, "Oh, hey, I left my lunch over there. Can I just go get it real quick?" Turns out he thought he couldn't bring his tuna sandwich into the courthouse.

Some readers have suggested that the late poet-novelist Charles Bukowski, the Bard of San Pedro, should be installed by the City Council as L.A.'s poet laureate, ending this column's effort to fill that position. In "Betting on the Muse," Bukowski wrote: the pleasures of the damned are limited to brief moments of happiness: like the eyes in the look of a dog, like a square of wax, like a fire taking the city hall. . . . Hmmm. Not sure the City Council would see the humor in that.
