Lights... camera... Alvin! Alvin? "Alll-vin!" Yes, it's everyone's favorite singing chipmunks--Alvin, Simon, and Theodore--in their very first full-length motion picture. And what a film it is! Filled with thrilling adventure, toe-tapping songs, and exotic global locations, The Chipmunk Adventure is an awesome animated odyssey. When Dave Seville embarks on a solo business trip to Europe, a disappointed Simon, Theodore, and Alvin are left at home in the care of the accident-prone Miss Miller. But soon Alvin has agreed to an offer that will allow the boys to become jet-setters of their own--by participating in an around-the-world hot-air balloon race! Their main competitors in the airborne adventure are the Chipettes--Brittany, Jeannette, and Eleanor--but their real opponents turn out to be Klaus and Claudia, two conniving international crooks who have cooked up the "race" as a front for their worldwide diamond smuggling operation! Join the laughs, music, and mayhem as the Chipmunks and the Chipettes take off on their hilarious high-flying adventures.

Then and now we love the idea of traveling around the world and doing fun (and sometimes dangerous) things. The songs are cute and funny. My sister and I got a particular kick out of watching Brittany and Jeanette try to snake charm with the song about "gettin' lucky with you." I'd actually love to hear some of those songs non-Chipmunkified so that it'd be easier to sing along with but they are perfectly fun to sing as is too.
When we were little we liked Alvin and Brittany the best as characters but as adults we found them to be annoying and liked characters like Simon much better. His dry humor when he instructs Alvin to put the balloon by the fountain and Alvin sticks it in the trees ("Like I said, in the tree.") made us crack up. We never used to like him.
Anyway I found it adorable and I'm buying a copy for myself now.
However, I still love it, love it, love it. I remember seeing this movie for the first time while visiting my cousins in New England in the 80's. Loved it then, love it now. I even brought my niece a copy. I have a copy on VHS from when I tape it off the Disney Channel, before they started showing commericals. Need to say it is a bit worn; therefore, I was excited when it was being released on DVD.
I recommend buying this movie and bringing out your inner child. If you have children, share this movie with them and let them see what real cartoons were like.
Dave is going on a business trip to Europe, leaving the boys with Miss Miller. Then, the Chipmunks and the Chippettes meet two people who offer to let them race around the world for a prize of one-hundred-thousand dollars, not knowing that it's just a scam to get them to deliver diamonds to people. Running into all kinds of trouble, and singing a bunch of great songs, this movie is one of the best cartoons ever! The scene where the boys sing "Woolie Bully" is even more classic than Pee-Wee dancing to "Tequila". If you or your kids have never seen this movie, you don't know what you're missing! I really hope this movie comes out on DVD soon, but for now the VHS will do just fine.
