Fun adventures and misadventures with the Chipmunks!
2 December 2016 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

This was one of many cartoon shows I've watched when I was a kid. It wasn't one of my favorites, but it was still good entertainment for me at the time.

The show features a stories about the adventures (and misadventures) of singing rodents named Alvin, Simon and Theodore, as they try to make it in showbiz and also regularly get into trouble one after the another.

I don't remember too much from the show, but it did create nice childhood memories and I did remember it being a funny show with interesting characters that will make you laugh and some fun adventures that will make the show pretty entertaining (who wouldn't be laughing hearing chipmunks singing with their high helium-like voices?).

Grade B-
