Alvinnn!!! and the Chipmunks: Summer of Sport is the first of four parts which make up season one and contains 14 episodes. The series will total 52 episodes in all, each of which is around 10 mins long.
A Bagdasarian production – the owner of the Chipmunks franchise – the series is created by Janice Karman, who also voices Theodore, Brittany, Jeanette and Miss Smith. It is produced by Ross Bagdasarian Jr. – the son of the Chipmunks creator and president of Bagdasarian Production – who also voices Dave Seville, Alvin and Simon.
International singing stars the Chipmunks, Alvin, Theodore and Simon and the Chipettes, Brittany, Eleanor and Jeanette are back in this new CGI version. It is now seven years since they first met Dave Seville and they are all living in a big house together, attending school, with Dave acting as a single parent to all six of them.
As you would expect, he has his work cut out dealing with all the antics. Each episode has a sporting theme, such as skateboarding or football. Each one forms a complete and very entertaining story, usually with a moral of some kind attached.
Ideal for the little ones, this series delivers a great message to kids about being active and enjoying outdoor activities, and on top of that, for fans of the music, every episode includes a new song.
The characters do look very different in this new version, more human than in previous incarnations, but the voices are unmistakable.
For all the long suffering parents out there with little fans of the Chipmunks, this is a must own!
“Now, Theodore, you’re going to have to believe me on this. There are no singing unicorns…”
