Alternate Versions

The title cards that opened each episode were featured in syndication, and on Nickelodeon, but were dropped entirely on Cartoon Network reruns. Some VHS and DVD releases have them, others don't. Oddly enough, Cartoon Network reruns kept Alvin's introductions from the first season that featured clips from today's episode or episodes. See more »

Classic 80's Cartoon
6 May 2000 | by MarioroxSee all my reviews

What can I say? This was the perfect way to begin the excellent animation generation of the 80's. It had great plots, characters, humor, & originality. It also had great music. The Chipmunks had a cartoon series before. It was also very good. This is more of an updated versian of the original classic. And unlike other updates, doesn't ruin the original style. This is what cartoon animation is all about...FUN, Creativity, & just plain good.
