    "ALVIN!" The Chipmunks are back!

    May 22, 5:55 PM EDT
    'ALVIN!' Chipmunks, David Seville Are Back
    By JOHN ROGERS
    Associated Press Writer


    LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Forty-eight years ago, songwriter Ross Bagdasarian was taking a drive through California's Yosemite National Park when a chipmunk scampered out in front of his car and stared him down in the way a matador might challenge a charging bull.
    "My dad just fell out of the car laughing," Ross Bagdasarian Jr. recalled recently from his home in Santa Barbara.
    It was the birth of a pop culture phenomenon known as Alvin and the Chipmunks. The three squeaky voiced cartoon rodents, and their father figure, "David Seville," would release "The Chipmunks Song" later that year and it would become one of the most popular recordings of 1958. TV series, movies and more than a dozen albums followed.

    Almost 50 years later, the Chipmunks - Alvin and his brothers Simon and Theodore - are still singing - voiced now by Bagdasarian's son and his son's wife, Janice Karman. They're also still driving the hapless Seville crazy, prompting him to scream out "ALVIN!" every few minutes.
    With the release this week of the DVD of 1987's feature film, "The Chipmunk Adventure," Bagdasarian and Karman are also at work on a script for a new movie they hope will be ready in time to mark the Chipmunks' 50th birthday.

    I remember reading a couple of years ago about a possible live action/cgi film being done. I wonder if that is the film mentioned in this article or if that has been scrapped in favor of a new fully animated film. (I'd probably prefer the latter)

    I love the Chipmunks! I found a bizarre tape the other day called "Alvin Goes Back to School." It featured costumed characters playing Alvin, Simon and Theodore and co-starred Punky Brewster's Soliel Moon Frye.

    Truly odd.

    I just hope it's good!!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Awww sweet! I watched this movie so many times when I was little. I can get it and have my little niece or nephew watch it in a few years. They should bring back the cartoon series on like Boomerang.

    I loved them when I was younger and still love them!
    I just hope that if they do a film it is not live action/CGI - those type of films always come out stupid
