Originally created in 1958 by Ross Bagdasarian, Sr., the Chipmunks are one of the largest family franchises in the world, with a multi-generational, international following. Janice Karman and her husband Ross Bagdasarian are the owners of the franchise and producers of the hit 1980s TV series, as well as four blockbuster Chipmunk movies.
Currently, the new series is being aired on more than 70 Nickelodeon channels internationally, as well as over 100 leading free-to-air platforms. Season 5 is in production under the direction of Karman, with co-producers Bagdasarian Productions and TAP sharing writing, producing and directing responsibilities. Seasons 6 & 7 will follow.
Presented in CGI-animation, ALVINNN!!! & the Chipmunks reflects the trials and tribulations of a single parent, David Seville, trying to raise six hyperactive Chipmunks. Like most parents, Dave’s patience will be pushed to the limit, forcing him to end many sentences with the iconic, “ALVINNN!!!” The series takes viewers on a roller-coaster ride of music, laughter, and stories geared to entertain the Chipmunks’ generations of fans. Each episode features a new, original Chipmunks song.
ALVINNN!!! & the Chipmunks is now guaranteed to be on-air with new episodes until at least 2026.
