Christmas story where the usually selfish Alvin gives his favorite harmonica to a sick boy named Tommy. Worried Dave will be upset he gave away his harmonica, Alvin starts scheming for a way to make money to buy a new one. Needless to say, things don't go as planned for Alvin. They rarely do. Anybody who likes the Chipmunks will love this cartoon. If you're unfamiliar with the Chipmunks or only know of them from the recent movies, I'm sure you'll still find lots to like here. It's got heart and humor and some nice Christmas songs. Also, even though it deals with Christmas and a sick child, it never gets too syrupy or corny. It's a cute, sweet story that can be enjoyed by kids and adults alike. Give it a shot. I think you'll like it.
