The Chipmunks is an American animated music group designed and created by Ross Bagdasarian in 1958.
The group is formed by three chipmunks: Alvin, the rebel, Simon, the intellectual, and Theodore, the softie of the group. The three squirrels are very smart and able to speak the humans language. The Group's manager is their adoptive father, a human by the name David Seville, Bagdasarian's stage name.
Following the great success of the band, they have came out in cinemas four animated films that tell the adventures of the three squirrels: the first, in 2007, with the title of "Alvin and the Chipmunks", two years later, in 2009 the sequel, entitled "Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel", in 2011 the third title "Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked" and in 2015 the fourth title "Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip".
