This cartoon follows the adventures of Alvin, Simon and Theodore and their mentor Dave as they go in search of stardom! Alvin, Simon and Theodore themselves have a history dating back to "The Alvin Show" in the late 60's but everyone remembers the 80's Cartoon with the fondest memories. The show ran from 1983 to 1990 in the USA and one episode even had MR T as a special guest star!

Lyrics

Watch out cause here we come
It's been a while but we're back with style
So get set to have some fun
We'll bring you action and satisfaction

We're the chipmunks
C-H-I-P-M-U-N-K
We're the chipmunks
Guaranteed to brighten your day

When you feel like a laugh
Give us a call we'll give you a roll
And if you feel like a song
Tune in to us and sing right along

We're the chipmunks
Coming on stronger than ever before
We're the chipmunks
Alvin, Simon, Theodore
