Production of the movie became too time consuming, and with the deadline for the completed project fast approaching, several scenes in the original script had to be re-written to make them simpler for the animators to animate (including the sacrificing scene), or cut from the script completely, thus resulting in a much shorter movie with fewer locations The Chipmunks and Chipettes actually visit.

During the end of the "Rock and Roll" song the Chipettes are holding on to the ropes of the basket when they are dancing and they look just wide enough to fit in the amount of space between each rope. Then when they are dancing and not holding onto the ropes they look significantly smaller and appear that they would not be able to hold onto the ropes. See more »
One of my absolute favorite childhood films. The Chipmunk adventure packs incredible fun geared for young and old alike. The animation is lively and colorful and the film itself boasts some of the best songs ever put in an animated feature. Who could forget the dynamic "Boys/Girls of Rock n' Roll", the exciting "Diamond Dolls", and the heartrending "My Mother"?
This should be considered a nostalgic classic animated gem from the eighties. It's too bad they don't make them like this anymore. Most animated films today resort to violence, crude humor, or sentimental mush... except of course the folks from Pixar.
BOTTOM LINE: An amazing and unforgettable adventure for all ages.
