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.

The Alvin Show Titlecard
The Alvin Show is the original 1961 Alvin and the Chipmunks television series, created by Ross Bagdasarian, Sr., initially airing in prime time and lasting only a single season. The show was created in a Three Short formatting: two dedicated to The Chipmunks and one to an inventor, Clyde Crashcup, and his assistant, Leonardo. Though drawn in color and televised in back and white, it wasn't until The Alvin Show was reran did the episodes air in color. The last airing ended in 1995 and the full season has yet to be released on DVD.

As the new series draws nearer, it's important that we pay tribute to the series that was responsible for bringing families together to enjoy three energetic, singing chipmunks.
