DID YOU KNOW?

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.

The Easter Chipmunk is a 1995 Easter Day television special based off the Ruby-Spears Productions series, Alvin and the Chipmunks, featuring The Chipmunks. Within the special, Alvin learns that his Grandpa is the original Easter Chipmunk, and once he hears Aunt Bunny proclaim the original Easter Bunny wasn't a bunny at all, the eldest brother seeks to prove Mr. Hoppity is a fraud. Provided the circumstantial evidence, Simon isn't as quick to fully support Alvin's lawsuit and investigates to uncover the truth. The special is not only included as part of The Easter Chipmunk VHS but is also available as part of The Mystery of the Easter Chipmunk and Easter Collection DVDs.
