I didn't see any differences between the original release and the Blu-Ray version EXCEPT (and I might be wrong in remembering this) but when Jeanette gets stuck on the windmill chasing the Chipmunk doll she screeches once at the top, then opens her mouth at the bottom but no sound comes out. THIS version has her screeching a second time. I know, HUGE deal, right? I may be remembering it differently, but that's the only thing my brain was telling me I was different.
I'm glad to add this to my childrens' movie library. There is a little extra on the Blu-Ray of an old cartoon of them visiting a bull ring. It's cute, but I wish they'd added a few more extras to it.
Still worth it!
This is not the new 3D version that's on the DisneyJunior Channel these are the old episodes put on DVD. They are great and bring back so many memories. The quality isn't as great as the new ones but its what we had back in the day.
If you don't get to movin' and shakin' to the Woolly Bully and some of the other Chipmunk's cover songs well you're just a stick in the mud. lol
In this movie join Alvin, Simon, and Theodore as they graduate from their weekly TV adventures to the big screen in the exciting, feature-length animated tale The Chipmunk Adventure. The three boys use a clever scheme with a tape recorder to trick their babysitter, Rebecca Miller, into letting them out of the house. The Chipmunks con the woman into believing that David Seville has granted them permission to set off on a trek around the world, in pursuit of the diamond smugglers Claudia and Claus. Of course, the boys make a point to solicit help from their female friends, The Chipettes, who excitedly agree to tag along on this globe-charting odyssey. A musical to boot, The Chipmunk Adventure features the boys singing such numbers as "Diamond Dolls," and the rollicking and rousing "Woolly Bully."The Chipettes join in as well, with the memorable tune "The Girls of Rock 'n' Roll."

The premise is Dave is going to Europe and Alvin, of course, wants to go with him, but can't. Dave leaves the Chipmunks back home and Alvin becomes obsessed with traveling around the world. A wealthy diamond smuggling couple over hear Alvin's assertion that he could beat Brittany (Chippette) in a race around the world and use the Chipmunks and Chipettes to deliver what are probably blood diamonds around the world. As you can image, chaos ensues, everyone sings, and the diamond caper is eventually discovered.
Totally wanted to be a Chippette, totally wanted to travel around the world in a hot balloon, and totally wanted to have Claudia's (villain) late 80s/early 90s chic bedroom when I was younger. Be warned! There are depictions of smoking and drinking! There are bad guys who fight. There are culturally insensitive moments, like Looney Tunes; however, this movie is permanently engraved in my memory as one of the great movies of my childhood. My own 3 year old would not move from where he sat until it was over. And that is proof alone that movie desires five stars.
I was happy to buy this movie a third time (once on VHS, then DVD, and now Blu-ray), and I hoped it would finally be widescreen (it is) and that the Blu-ray image would pop, the way Disney Blu-ray releases do.
The image does not pop. At times it is very soft and downright ugly. Other times it is clean and crisp, and I think "this is how it should look." But it's definitely not consistent, and it's a shame.
The backgrounds look better, but dark colors sometimes "buzz" with what I assume is digital noise.
All in all, I was disappointed with the transfer. So if you are considering a purchase, do it for the movie, which is great, and not the jump to high definition, which is lacking.
This movie is filled with amazing music and scores. Super catchy I STILL find myself singing it on occassion. The storyline is very good, adorable and fun for a kid's movie made in the 80's. It really is a fantastic adventure following the Chipmunks and the Chipettes as they travel and race around the world!
