History of Alvin and the Chipmunks

Alvin and the Chipmunks were created by Ross Bagdasarian in 1958. Bagdasarian created them through his stage name “David Seville” for a novelty record. Seville had already experimented with the recording manipulation of speeding up the playback to make one’s voice high-pitched on his previous hit song “Witch Doctor”. In that song, the witch doctor’s part was made into a higher pitched voice.

After the “Witch Doctor”, Seville created a singing chipmunk trio. Alvin (who became the star of the group) was the mischievous one. Theodore was the somewhat heavy, and a bit of a follower. Simon was the smart, grown up one in the group. The group’s first song, “The Chipmunk Song”, came out just in time for Christmas and was a huge hit. In it, the Chipmunks croon for “Christmas Don’t Be Late” and Alvin wishes for a hula hoop. The song would go on to sell more than 4 million copies. Soon after a complete album, Let’s All Sing with the Chipmunks, was released in 1959.

After that, Alvin and the Chipmunks comic books followed, more albums were released and even The Alvin Show (television) aired in 1961. The final album in the Chipmunks early stage, The Chipmunks Go to the Movies, came out in 1969. Bagdasarian passed away in 1972 after a heart attack and the Chipmunks franchise went on a hiatus for the next 10 years or so.

In the 1980s a second animated series, Let’s All Sing with the Chipmunks, again saw success. The show gave the Chipmunks a more modern look and introduced them in different settings. In the 1990s, the Chipmunks would star in a number of direct-to-video productions. These releases continued into the 2000s and today the Chipmunks are featured in an increasing number of projects.
