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.

The Chipmunk Adventure poster
The Chipmunk Adventure is a 1987 animated feature film based off the Ruby-Spears Productions series, Alvin and the Chipmunks. In their first feature film release, directed by Janice Karman, both The Chipmunks and The Chipettes compete against each other for $100,000 in a thrilling hot-air balloon race around the world. Unfortunately for the chipmunks they are relentlessly persuaded by two intimidating Interpol agents for the precious cargo they are unknowing smuggling into the countries they visit. Available on VHS, DVD, digital download, and restored for Blu-ray, this classic film will undoubtedly relight those childhood memories but also create new ones through its charming animation, catchy musical numbers such as "The Girls of Rock 'n' Roll" and "Diamond Dolls," and bonus content from The Alvin Show (only within Blu-ray release).
