  The Alvin Show - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Alvin Show, the first American animated television series to feature the singing characters from Alvin and the Chipmunks, lasted for just one season in prime time (1961 1962) but has become something of a cult favourite over the years.
One of a small number of animated series to be shown in prime time on CBS, The Alvin Show was broadcast in fl and white, even though it was produced and later re-run in color (CBS did not switch to full, across-the-board color television until 1964).
As a result, both the new Alvin and the Chipmunks (1983-1991) as well as the original Alvin Show could be seen at any given time throughout the 1980s.

 The Chipmunks - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the third season, the show introduced The Chipettes, three female versions of the Chipmunks—Brittany, Jeanette, and Eleanor—with their own human counterpart, the myopic Mrs.
The show reflected current trends and historical events in pop culture; the Chipmunks sang recent hits, and wore contemporary clothing.
A live-action feature-length movie, loosely based on the early-1960s animated television series The Alvin Show, was reportedly in development by 20th Century Fox, featuring computer-animated Chipmunks and a live-action David Seville.

Those that only know Alvin and the fellas from their 1980s show might be surprised to learn that they got their start in a string of novelty records from the 1950s and 1960s.
Alvin is embarrassed to tell Dave, though, since Dave had given Alvin the harmonica as a present.
The next two shows on the disc are from the long-running 1980s version of Alvin and the Chipmunks, which ran new episodes on NBC on Saturday mornings for seven years.

Alvin wore a cap and a big "A" on his chest, Simon sported glasses, and Theodore was the small, chubby one.
The 1980s rendition was rather reminiscent of the early show, although Dave looked somewhat younger than his previous counterpart and the Chipmunks had frillier hairstyles.
The best of these for longtime fans had to be "Back to Alvin s Future," where their old buddy Clyde Crashcup drove a time-machine car to tell the present-day Chipmunks that they must go back in time because Alvin in 1957 is now thinking about quitting his dreams of a musical career.

Alvin was a real cut-up — when Dave tried to criticize Alvin's performance, he had to yell just to get any response at all from the furry li'l critter.

Alvin and the Chipmunks is not only an extension of a famous cartoon into the next generation, but generally a showcase of what life was like back in the 1980's.
I really enjoyed watching this show during the 1990's, because it gave me a clue as to what life was like during the 1980's.

 TV ACRES: Chipmunks - Alvin & the Chipmunks (Ross Bagdaserian)
In the fall of 1990 the show was retitled CHIPMUNKS GO TO THE MOVIES as Alvin and company parodied famous motion pictures.
Originally, Bagdasarian was going to use rabbits or butterflies as characters to match the high pitch electronic voices that he created until his children (Carol, Ross, and Adam) agreed that the speeded up voices sounded more like chipmunks.
Alvin, who played a harmonica and wore a baseball hat was named after Al Bennett, Vice President of Liberty Records.

 extended playhouse 9 . the chipmunks
Ross Bagdasarian’s endearing creations were originally rendered in an unappealing anthropomorphic style before their definitive makeover for one of the best-ever animated TV series, The Alvin Show, which was much closer to The Simpsons or even Calvin and Hobbes than its reputation today allows.
The sequence in the Alvin Show in which the Chipmunks use Dave’s African mask collection to interpret the song was particularly innovative and anticipated a lot of music video camera techniques that later became commonplace.
“Alvin’s Harmonica” (single, from Let’s All Sing with The Chipmunks): A good place to mention that Bagdasarian was mixing Chipmunks records in stereo at a time when most pop records were primarily mono (Liberty Records was one of the earliest major labels to consistently issue stereo LPs).

 Dave Alvin Reviews   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
Alvin contributed 4th of July, a song every bit as good as anything he or X had ever written, and then moved on again, recording a spotty but impassioned solo album, Romeo's Escape (including his own version of ''4th of July'').
Alvin's songs about ordinary people, for example, the loner who travels from city to city staying in a "Thirty Dollar Room" are a keenly penned, insightful and occasionally joyous celebration of America that never stray from the honest and authentic.
Alvin's razor sharp lyrics, lead guitar and gruff everyman vocals never overshadow the band who, as they follow Dave through his mix of folk, country, blues, soul, and rock and roll, respond with such loose precision that it seems like all five men are thinking with one head.

Here’s an excellent example of the radical re-design Alvin and the chipmunks went through for their animated appearance in THE ALVIN SHOW; this is the front cover of its funnybook equivalent, the first issue of Dell’s ALVIN (October — December, 1962).
One aspect that made the original version of this show so hip was that the Chipmunks were depicted as child celebrities, with occasional looks “behind the music” at their lives spent in recording studios and on personal appearances.

The influence of hip-hop throughout the piece is a nice addition, bringing the rhythm to life through the dancers' hips and movement, thanks to Alvin Ailey's Artistic Director Judith Jamison collaborating with hip-hop pioneer Rennie Harris and modern dancer Robert Battle.
The concert ended the night with their world-renowned piece, "Revelations," that was choreographed by Alvin Ailey in 1971 using the blues, spirituals and gospels from Texas as inspiration.
The show proved, however, that the Alvin Ailey company does have a new pair of shoes that fit pretty darn well in comparison with its previous classics.

For the most part, the culture of music shows has been compartmentalized into two neatly defined categories, rarely venturing outside the standard general-admission dance/rock/mosh party or the subdued sit-down show.
