Whenever I spot new tv shows that N’s watching, so many of them are reworks of programmes from mine or my brother’s childhood tv watching era. One of those is Alvin and the Chipmunks. We used to watch the original (I’m presuming from my brother’s time – or maybe we would just sit and watch anything at certain times of the day), and since then there’s been the film which was also fun.
N’s never really seen much more than a clip of the film, but we were sent the new CGI Alvinnn!!! and the Chipmunks: Summer of Sport dvd from the new animated tv show to review. Season 1 consists of 52 episodes with the volume 1 Summer of Sport dvd containing 14 episodes, released on 13th June.
As soon as there’s a new dvd in the house, N’s there like a shot and I came down one morning to see him watching avidly. To me, who’s used to seeing the old style chipmunks, these ones are a little strange. They’re more human than animal, but still with the same sounding voices, and the same cheeky nature. The stories are all about single parent David trying to raise 6 cheeky chipmunks, Simon, Alvin and Theodore, plus the 3 Chipettes.
N watched 2 episodes from the dvd in succession, telling me it was funny and good. With the episodes only being 10-15 minutes long, the DVDs perfect for short tv watching sessions and for young children who maybe fidget a lot during longer films. Each episode contains a new Chipmunks song.
In celebration of Alvin and the Chipmunks over the years, do check out the infographic below. Can you remember them from your youth?
