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.

ALVINNN!!! and The Chipmunks is the newest Alvin and the Chipmunks television series, created by Janice Karman, that premiered March 2015 in France (August 2015 in the US). The CGI-animated series is expected to last for at least five seasons totaling 260 eleven-minute episodes; each of which contains at least one new original song. The Chipmunks and The Chipettes' designs for the Bagdasarian and OuiDo! Productions show feature a mix of the classic 1980s look and that of the modern CGI/live-action films. This global series maintains the essence of the previous generations in terms of character appeal and storyline but with present-day issues, such as technology, not explored previously.
