At one point, Butch speaks and father understands him -- ??!!  (Violation of series principle)

Hoskins: later voiced Christopher Robin.

[One of the better examples of Chip being an "unofficial" leader. He clearly doesn't want to waste time searching for Tom, but the others do. And, Gadget basically makes a plea to him ("We're responsible for him!") for them to continue. If Chip had said no, it's clear they would have gone home, although teary-eyed. Fortunately, Chip has a heart, so that doesn't happen.

Also, Gadget's ability to sway Chip's decisions was nicely highlighted here. In particular, when she explains, "Tom needs our help. Pleeeease, Chip?" while leaning in close with a coy smile and a hand on his shoulder. Chip's reluctance evaporates almost instantly, and he even smiles as he answers, "Well, I suppose somebody's got to keep an eye on him." -- MP.]
