A Little 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 a one’s voice, high-pitched on his previous hit song “Witch Doctor”. In that song, the witch doctor’s part of the song was made into a higher pitched voice.
After the “Witch Doctor”, Seville created a singing chipmunk trio. Alvin (who would become the star of the group) was the mischievous one. Theodore was the somewhat heavy, bit of a follower chipmunk. And, Simon was the smart, more 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 would follow, more albums would be released and even The Alvin Show (television) would air in 1961. The final album in the Chipmunks early stage, The Chipmunks Go to the Movies, came out in 1969. Bagdasarian would pass away in 1972 after a heart attack and the Chipmunks franchise would go on a bit of a hiatus for the next 10 years or so.
It was in the 1980’s that a second animated series, Let’s All Sing with the Chipmunks, would again see some success. The show would give the Chipmunks a more modern look and introduce them in different settings. In the 1990’s the Chipmunks would star in a number of direct-to-video productions. These releases would continue into the 2000’s and today the Chipmunks continue to be featured in a number of projects.
