Alvin and the Chipmunks (stylized as ALVINNN!!! and the Chipmunks)[4] is a French-American[3] CGI-animated television series featuring Alvin and the Chipmunks and The Chipettes that was first announced in 2010.[5] After a 25-year hiatus, the premiere of this series marks their first television appearance together since 1990. A promotional trailer for the series was posted on YouTube on February 9, 2014.[6] The series made its debut on March 30, 2015 on M6 in France.[7] It was supposed to premiere in March 2015 on Nickelodeon in the United States but was delayed to August 3.[8][9][10]

Plot[edit]

The series is an animated comedy about a single father named David Seville, who is raising three Chipmunks. He can lose his patience sometimes, causing him to say "ALVINNN!!!".[11] There is a song in every episode. The series takes place in modern times and discusses modern topics such as Dave's technology issues and school bullying.[12] Others are parents embarrassing kids and parents needing dates.[4]

Production[edit]

The series, originally titled The Chipmunks and Chipettes,[3] has 104 11-minute episodes and is produced in high-definition CGI animation,[3][13] with The Chipmunks and The Chipettes' new looks resembling the iMunk looks.[4][14] Ross Bagdasarian, Jr. and Janice Karman voice the main characters,[4] with each episode having a song.[8][15]

The series producers are Ross Bagdasarian, Jr., Janice Karman, Sandrine Nguyen, and Boris Hertzog from the American production company Bagdasarian Productions and French company OuiDo! Productions.[9][16][17] OuiDo!
