About Us

The first official vocal appearance of Alvin and the Chipmunks was their three-time Grammy award-winning single "The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don't Be Late)" in 1958. Driven by the success of this hit, Ross Bagdasarian, Sr. created The Alvin Show, The Chipmunks' first television series, in 1961 and the group's first solo album, The Alvin Show. After his death in 1972, his son, Ross Bagdasarian, Jr., relit the franchise in 1980 with the album Chipmunk Punk. Seeing an opportunity to continue his father's legacy, Ross Bagdasarian, Jr. and his wife, Janice Karman, launched the 80s Chipmunks with the TV series Alvin and the Chipmunks, The Chipmunks, and The Chipmunks Go to the Movies, lasting eight seasons total. They would also create The Chipettes in 1983 and release the first animated feature film, The Chipmunk Adventure, in 1987. In 2007, the franchise entered into a second revival which began with the release of the group's third platinum album, Alvin and the Chipmunks: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, and the start of the CG Chipmunks. The CGI/live-action films Alvin and the Chipmunks, The Squeakquel, and Chipwrecked together opened the door for the creation of a new TV series, ALVINNN!!! and The Chipmunks, and a fourth CGI/live-action film, The Road Chip, in 2015.

Christmas with The Chipmunks 1961
Christmas with The Chipmunks is a 1962 Liberty Records album featuring The Chipmunks and Dave Seville singing classic Christmas hits such as "Jingle Bells," "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer," "It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas," and, of course, the Billboard #1 song "The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don't Be Late)." The album is the single most re-released album of any released to date which contributed to its Platinum certification by the RIAA and the popularity of these seasonal tracks. Though original distributed as an LP, the album is also available on CD and digital download. A follow-up, Christmas with The Chipmunks, Vol. 2, was obtainable the following year.
