PERFORMER Kevin Clash Chip
  Richard Hunt Dip
DEBUT 1986

Chip and Dip are a pair of identical cats who appeared on Sesame Street in the mid 1980s. The pair spoke in raspy voices and enjoyed playing tricks on Oscar the Grouch. They also played the drums and piano in Hoots the Owl's band.

The duo reappeared in the Monsterpiece Theater sketch "Inside Outside Story." Kevin Clash reprises Chip while David Rudman performs Dip.

The characters eventually were used as stock felines in various segments and episodes for the show.
