Chip and Pepper Foster are identical twin businessmen from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.[1] They are co-owners of the self-titled Chip & Pepper California and former hosts of their own NBC series, Chip and Pepper's Cartoon Madness.


Chip and Pepper's Cartoon Madness[edit]

At a peak in their popularity, the Foster brothers were featured on a Canadian TV station singing "Chip and Pepper: get hip or get out!" The footage came into the hands of NBC's Head of Entertainment Brandon Tartikoff, who decided to give the pair a Saturday morning cartoon show. In fall of 1991, Chip and Pepper's Cartoon Madness debuted. Serving as a cornerstone to NBC's animated lineup, it included sketches and interviews, but old cartoons such as Casper and Captain Caveman would take up most of the airtime. The show only lasted one season, however, before NBC dropped its animated block altogether in 1992.
