I love the Chipmunks
25 September 2005 | by klutzulmaniackSee all my reviews

I think anything to do with the Chipmunks is AMAZING. I have been a fan of the series ALL the series for years now.

Since then I've wished to have them at home. The songs are catchy all the movies and series are GREAT if your a real Chipmunks fan you'll appreciate all the series and their cuteness and the fact that they and the Chipette's are so cute.

The series I would particularly like is "The Chimunks" and "Alvin and the Chipmunks".

Alvin is cute and a lead singer. He's a babe and a star, Simon is smart back up singer and helps Alvins stay in line, Theodore is little babyish plays the drums loves his brothers and food.

Brittany is a perfect match for Alvin she's also cute lead singer and very conceited she and Alvin are constantly challenging each other as they are both stubborn. Jeanette isn't so much naturally smart but more so clumsy and a gorgeous dweeb she's interested in the same things as Simon only that she must study to be half his equal. Eleanor and Theodore are a very good match because they share the same interests they both like food and are both chubby and proud except little blonde Eleanor is maternal and not so innocent.

P.S. Does anyone know where it's possible to buy the series?!! Thanx
