I wasn't born in the 80's but still I grew up with this show. I remembered I use to take a tape out and have my mom record me the episodes when I was off to school. I loved it so much. To tell you the truth also I was one of those girls who had a crush on alvin. This show is adorable and funny. I remember one episode where Alvin's watch got stolen by these bullies and they had Mr. T help them out with thier predicerment. An awesome show with great music, lovable characters, and the oh so adorable alvin that we all know and love!
