Universal Studios Home Entertainment is the home entertainment branch of Universal Studios, founded in 1978 as MCA DiscoVision.

In 1996, Bagdasarian Productions licensed the Chipmunk characters to Universal Studios, leading to the 1998 VHS of The Chipmunk Adventure (which is the last video featuring the MCA/Universal Home Video logo) and a series of direct-to-video films including Alvin and the Chipmunks Meet the Wolfman and Alvin and the Chipmunks Meet Frankenstein.

However, in 2000, Ross Bagdasarian, Jr. sued Universal for breach-of-contract, citing that Universal failed to properly use the Chipmunk characters, leading to a loss of royalties for Bagdasarian.

In 2006, Paramount Home Entertainment received the licensing rights to the Chipmunks, while Universal retained the rights to Alvin and the Chipmunks Meet the Wolfman and Alvin and the Chipmunks Meet Frankenstein, as those two films feature appearances by Universal's legendary horror movie monsters.
