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.

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.
The animation is beautiful, the story never gets old for me, and the music...well, it should come as no surprise that I also own the soundtrack on CD. I think this movie still stands the test of time, and if you have young children today they'd enjoy this as much as I did at that age. My only warning is that if you think you couldn't stand hearing your kids' high-pitched versions of "Wooly Bully" for the next few months, then don't dare bring this into your home. (But if you are the type to sing along...)
But I digress. I don't want to give away any of the story, but generally, the chipmunks & chipettes enter into a bet to race around the world for $100K. Of course, Dave would never allow this, and the scheme to keep him (and babysitting Mrs. Miller) unaware is almost as much of an adventure as the race itself.
I won't ruin anything for those who haven't seen it, but suffice it to say, there is something the youngsters don't know about the race that will end up getting everyone in deep trouble before the movie ends.
It's exciting, funny, beautifully animated and like I said, if you can walk away w/o humming even one of the tunes, I'd be surprised.
Definitely a great kids movie, as well as for those of us w/ a serious case of 80s nostalgia!
One Final Note:
Obviously, this movie has been one of my favorites since childhood, and I--like many others, if you read the reviews here, alone--have been patiently waiting for it to come to dvd. I read somewhere--over a year ago--that it was slated to arrive in March of 2004, but was pushed back...evidently indefinitely. I'd love to see the Chipmunk Adventure on disc, and if you feel likewise, I'd suggest going to the official website ([...] & then the "contact us" link) to inquire about it; if BAGDASARIAN PRODUCTIONS LLC sees a notable increase in interest for the DVD version, perhaps we'll see it on Amazon.com quicker?? Until then, I guess the VHS will have to suffice...
