Editorial Reviews

Join Alvin and his brothers Simon and Theodore for this hilarious Halloween adventure. Alvin wants to be accepted into the Monster Club, but the Monster members seem to think its cool to be cruel. It takes Theodore's friendship to Michael, a misunderstood outcast the other kids call Pumpkinhead, to show Alvin that being a true friend is really a lot more cool than trying to be a popular Monster! There are plenty of laughs and surprises and music, including the Chipmunk's rendition of the hit song "Monster Mash" to make this a monstrously fun video any time of the year!

Kids loved it. We rented this movie so many times that we finally decided to buy. The kids watch it all year round.

Chip and Dale aren't the only squeaky-voiced chipmunks in the realm of animation. Around the same period these two critters were born out of the Disney studio, another trio would challenge their position--Simon, Theodore, and the ever-irrepressible scamp, Alvin. Creations of musician Ross Bagdasarian (who, incidentally, had the stage name of David Seville, the mild-mannered human who "fathers" the chipmunks), these three have amused many through their numerous record albums and television shows.

This DVD compiles several episodes from the 1980's series, as well as a 1994 Halloween special, "Trick or Treason", in which egocentric Alvin aspires to be part of a monster club while Theodore strikes up a friendship with a malformed, misunderstood boy. This special, capped off by a kitschy "Chipmunk" rendition of "Monster Mash" is probably the best on the disc, with solid production values, humor, and a couple of nice (albeit predictable) twists. (Considering it is a 1994 production, such polish is to be expected.)

On the other hand, the remaining episodes (where the "boys" deal with a seemingly menacing babysitter, a monster movie, practical jokes, and nightmares) are a mixed bag. For kids unfamiliar with Alvin and company from the '60s or the curious, this is passably entertaining fare. Unfortunately, my mother (who had grown up with the "old" Alvin), found these latter episodes to be uninspired and predictable--with production values on par with, well, an 80's TV cartoon and only a number of mildly amusing moments. It's not bad stuff for Halloween or a rainy day, all in all, but Alvin, Simon, and Theodore have had better outings--try THE CHIPMUNK ADVENTURE or A CHIPMUNK CHRISTMAS instead.

The first one is the only one that's actually related to halloween but the other stories are have scarry themes. Its great for the Halloween season and my kids love it.

My kids love this video! There are 5 or 6 episodes from the old cartoon series on this dvd. Halloween is very big at our house, so the kids were happy to see that there was a collection of just the Halloween/spooky episodes. We have several of the Alvin and the Chipmunks dvd's and this one is by far the kids favorite. My youngest daughter is two and she loves this as well, so this is a good one for the younger kids as well.

As always, watching anything with Alvin and the Chipmunks takes you right back to your own youth, but the grandkids love Alvin and the boys equally as much. They just don't make a lot of Halloween videos for the kids these days and Trick or Treason was perfect: festive, interesting, action packed.

Bought for my grandchildren to watch after they were done trick-or-treating. They loved it. A good way to wind down from the days activities.
