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 television series, ALVINNN!!! and The Chipmunks, and a fourth CGI/live-action film, Alvin and the Chipmunks 4, which are expected to premiere in March 2015 and December 2016 respectively.

Scare-Riffic Double Feature Original Cover DVD
Alvin and the Chipmunks Meet Frankenstein and Alvin and the Chipmunks Meet the Wolfman are animated horror-themed direct-to-video films, created by Bagdasarian Productions and Universal Animation Studios, originally released in 1999 and 2000 respectively. Both films capture the essence of Alvin and the Chipmunks and Universal's legendary monsters, Frankenstein and Wolfman, in new renditions of these classic nightmare tales. In Meet Frankenstein, Dave books The Chipmunks for a Halloween performance at a theme park after of which they discover Dr. Frankenstein's monster. After the boys teach him to be kind, Alvin is kidnapped to become Dr. Frankenstein's new monster. In Meet the Wolfman, Alvin develops suspicions that their neighbor is a wolfman and forces Simon to help him prove his claim. Meanwhile, The Chipmunks and The Chipettes practice for a Halloween play only for things to become wild once Theodore starts transforming as a result of a mysterious bite. These two scare-riffic tales, featuring seven total songs, are currently available on VHS, DVD, and digital download.
