The first official vocal appearance of Alvin and the Chipmunks was their three-time Grammy award-winning single "The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don't Be Late)" in 1958. Driven by the success of this hit, Ross Bagdasarian, Sr. created The Alvin Show, The Chipmunks' first television series, in 1961 and the group's first solo album, The Alvin Show. After his death in 1972, his son, Ross Bagdasarian, Jr., relit the franchise in 1980 with the album Chipmunk Punk. Seeing an opportunity to continue his father's legacy, Ross Bagdasarian, Jr. and his wife, Janice Karman, launched the 80s Chipmunks with the TV series Alvin and the Chipmunks, The Chipmunks, and The Chipmunks Go to the Movies, lasting eight seasons total. They would also create The Chipettes in 1983 and release the first animated feature film, The Chipmunk Adventure, in 1987. In 2007, the franchise entered into a second revival which began with the release of the group's third platinum album, Alvin and the Chipmunks: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, and the start of the CG Chipmunks. The CGI/live-action films Alvin and the Chipmunks, The Squeakquel, and Chipwrecked together opened the door for the creation of a new TV series, ALVINNN!!! and The Chipmunks, and a fourth CGI/live-action film, The Road Chip, in 2015. Four years later, the Bagdasarian family accepted a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, celebrating Alvin and the Chipmunks' 60th anniversary.

Alvin and the Chipmunks: Alvin's Thanksgiving Celebration is a 2008 DVD celebrating Thanksgiving through the holiday special A Chipmunk Celebration and three additional episodes from The Chipmunks series: Food for Thought, Cookie Chomper III, and Dave's Getting Married. In the special, Alvin and his brothers take part in a Pilgrims town play, but when encouraged to take roles outside their comfort zones, they devise a plan to prevent any possible failure and humiliation by avoiding the play altogether. In the episodes, the boys must help Theodore ace a history test, overcome the lose of a pet, and get along with three kids belonging to a woman The Chipmunks have convinced Dave to marry. This Thanksgiving celebration is filled with original songs including the Chipmunks in Low Places' "Gotta Believe In Pumpkins," the "History Rap," "She's Alright," and the heart-tugging track "Beautiful Memories."
