Alternate Versions

At least 2 episodes that were released on DVD have the original songs altered. They are, from "Curse of Lontiki", "Surfin' U.S.A." by The Beach Boys, and from "Theodore and Juliet", "Love Potion No. 9". "Curse of Lontiki", which was released on "The Alvinnn!!! Edition" DVD, replaces "Surfin' U.S.A." with "Surfin' Safari", also by The Beach Boys, while "Theodore and Juliet", which was released on the "Chipmunk Valentine" DVD, replaces "Love Potion No. 9" with "Witch Doctor". The 1996 VHS release of that episode retained the original song. See more »

A classic cartoon!
16 May 2006 | by Legend_KillaSee all my reviews

I just came across the theme song (we're The Chipmunks ooohhhh!). I started crying when I heard it because it reminded me of a happier time. A time when my entire week was built up toward Saturday morning TV. Once Saturday morning TV was over, a cloud of darkness appeared because I knew that I had school on Monday. This cartoon was one of the classic cartoons of all time. I feel sorry for todays generation, they don't get to experience the Saturday morning TV that my generation got to experience.

This cartoon is up there with Captain Planet, Thundercats and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
