Alternate Versions

In syndication, the first 52 episodes, from when the show was animated by Ruby-Spears Productions, along with the Valentine's and Reunion specials, from 1984 and 1985 respectively were purchased along with the first 11 episodes of season 6. In addition, most of, if not all of the episodes were time-compressed, and resulted in an increase in pitch. All episodes that have been released on VHS and DVD, have the original proper pitch reinstated. 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.
