I think the series is quite good. There's a clear difference from the start of the series to where it is now, with the character designs honed in and the animation smoother. I think the plots have also improved and the original songs are pleasant to listen to.
Having Ross and Janice on the the new series helped ensure the character quality. They are very protective of the characters and want the best of them, though sometimes that can mean less people are involved. A big plus with this particular series is the fact their children, Michael and Vanessa, are involved and learning to keep the franchise going.
I like the series, and have few qualms with it. Janice and Ross' involvement is what makes the series great.
I agree that the animation in the first season was not the best (the faces don't articulate that well, depending on the episode). At least they move fluidly and have facial expression.
I hate it because it’s been on TV too long and I wanted to be cancelled.
I respect your opinion.
I say it is a great series
I love it!!!!
I think it's the best version of The Chipmunks and Chipettes that has ever been created.
1) All the songs are original and not some obviously borrowed famous song being sung in high pitched voices; like they did in the old cartoon version, all new material with this show
2) Making Simon the oldest was very wise improvement; it always bugged me the way it was before since it didn't make sense, glad that this change was made.
3) The Chipmunks and Chipettes have never looked cuter!!
4) I like that fact that they are all much shorter now.
My estimated height for the 6 main characters
Simon= 14 inches
Jeanette= 13 inches
Alvin= 12 inches
Brittney= 11 inches
Theodore= 10 inches
Eleanor= 9 inches
What do you think?
