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

Chip and Pepper's Cartoon Madness

At a peak in their popularity, the Foster brothers appeared 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 them a Saturday morning cartoon show. In fall 1991, Chip and Pepper's Cartoon Madness debuted. The new edition to NBC's animated line-up included sketches and interviews, but old cartoons such as Casper and Captain Caveman took up most of the airtime. The show lasted one season before NBC dropped its animated block altogether in 1992.

Golf Punk and appearances on the Style Network/E!

In 1994, the Fosters opened a store by the name of Golf Punk. As it grew, they decided to resurrect their signature brand, which took place in fall 2003 in Los Angeles. They gained notoriety as stylists on the Style Network show The Look For Less and numerous appearances on E!, including Glamour's 50 Biggest Fashion Dos & Don'ts.


In 2007, the Fosters introduced a brand new line with JC Penney called C7P. The line was aimed particularly at the teen market, including an array of denim items including jeans, skirts, Bermuda shorts, and crop pants along with T-shirts, tops, and fleece.


The 2021 Netflix series Saturday Morning All Star Hits! spoofs the duo as Skip and Treybor, each played by Kyle Mooney.
