Three furry chipmunks left at the doorstep of poor Dave's house. Dave takes them in while having his own financial trouble. He discovers that they can sing and they help him make the hit song The Witch Doctor. Thus Alvin and the chipmunks were born.
Grew up watching Alvin and the Chipmunks and I wouldn't miss a single episode on Saturday morning cartoons. I really like the very first episode where their mom leaves them at Dave's doorstep and Dave doesn't know what to do. I like that they show him a very poor guy and bearing making it. I was kind of disappointed that the new movie Alvin and the Chipmunks didn't portray Dave poorer like on the series but of course nowadays it is easy to get everything on credit and easy to get stuff especially if he went to school. Have to say I love the chipmunks in diapers.
