Funny, mischievous, and very adventurous, the musical sensations and pop-culture icons Alvin, Simon, and Theodore have “munk'd” the nation for over 55 years. A global phenomenon to generations of fans, Alvin and the Chipmunks were originally created in 1958 by Ross Bagdasarian, Sr., and have delighted audiences both young and old through film, television, and music. The Chipmunks made their television debut in 1961 with the primetime series The Alvin Show. Then in 1981, the holiday classic A Chipmunk Christmas sparked a re-launch of Alvin and the Chipmunks as a #1-rated, Emmy-nominated animated series during the 1980s and '90s. Three blockbuster films and million-selling soundtracks followed and today, Alvin and the Chipmunks are more popular than ever. In 2015, The Chipmunks return to television with an all new animated series, presented for the first time in glorious CGI! Created by Janice Karman, the show takes us on a roller coaster ride of music, laughter, and stories that's sure to entertain the Chipmunks' four generations of fans.
