The Chipmunks' Size in Alvinnn!!!Okay. So ever since we got ahold of a panel from the storyboard from Episode #2: Talkin' Teddy from Alvinnn!!! and the Chipmunks, everyone has gone on to assume that The Chipmunks and Chipettes will be the size they were in the CGI movies in the new cartoon. This assumption would make sense in theory because of this image: As you see, Alvin and Simon are much smaller than the teddy bear in this picture. This would lead one to assume that they are the size of actual chipmunks...And we all did believe that, but my friends and I have realized there is more evidence proving they aren't the size of actual chipmunks and are indeed child sized like they were in the cartoons. I'll start with the only image we have that is an actual screenshot from the show itself. It is from the promo video that has yet to be released, but we have managed to get a still from PGS Entertainment's Vimeo page. This: This image is what first led us to realize that they w
FINALLY!!So we've been long speculating that the iMunk/Call Me Maybe designs were going to be the ones used in the new TV Show...we finally get confirmation...and some pretty awesome sketches. <3 I don't care what anyone says...I adore these designs. They are far from being as cute as the 80's designs, but I think they are PRECIOUS either way! We also now have a release date...2015! And a new name, too! ALVINNN!!! and The Chipmunks!I'm very excited. <3
The Chipettes Are Not Sex ToysI just feel like getting this out. The Chipettes are not sex toys. They have always been highly sexualized since their creation, both by fans and, admittedly, by Bagdasarian Productions and the animators themselves. Right now we're going to discuss The Chipettes' sexualization in the fandom. Let me start off by saying something....Brittany, Jeanette, and Eleanor Miller are eight years old. Now, I have looked at plenty of Rule34. I check for it every day. I have written smut fanfiction, but they are adults in it of course. This isn't just about The Chipettes' age though. That plays a big part in why it's bad, but they are fictional characters so it's not as bad as it would be if they were real...BUT What makes me angry is that a lot of people act like The Chipettes aren't even their own characters and are only there to be sexually pleasing to the viewer and to The Chipmunks. I know a specific person, who I will not
:3(updated!)I'm just gonna leave this here. :3EDIT: I found some more things todayyy!Here is a storyboard image of Alvin and Simon from Episode #2, "Talkin Teddy". Based on the image and their size in relation to the teddy bear, they will probably be chipmunk sized...but we can always hope the bear is giant, right? ^^ (Btw, that image looks like that because it's a rough storyboard image, not in the same style as the show itself)Here is an image of their house from Episode #1, "Principal Interest".

RantI'm sorry guys, but I need to post this. I'm in the mood to rant.I might lose a few watchers after this, but I don't really give a shit.I've been put in a pissy mood today, so I figured it's the best time to get my feelings out about one particular subject: CGI Chipmunks.I can never post my full opinion on them anywhere, because I don't want to get into trouble or offend anyone. But this is MY dA account, so I can post MY opinion and it won't matter.I absolutely, with all my heart, DESPISE CGI Chipmunks. There is nothing in this fandom more revolting(other than, say, chipmunks turned into humans).It's absolutely impossible to express how much I hate them.CGI RUINED The Chipmunks and Chipettes.What did they do? They took the characters we all loved and slapped fur on them and made them tiny and fucked up their eye colors and destroyed their personalities.Here is a list of reasons I hate CGI:1. Eye colors. This is a HUGE issue for me. Bigger than anything. HUGE. I FUCKING HATE W
ALVINNN!!! PROMO VIDEO!!!!!!!!!!!!!http://vimeo.com/84320467I FOUND THE PROMO VIDEO OH MY GOD IT'S AMAZING I'M DYINGEDIT: This should go without saying, but everyone...PLEASE don't upload this to Youtube or anywhere. If Bagdasarian Productions and Ouido! Productions know we have it who knows what could happen. We could get in trouble or we might not get more info anytime soon. I don't think this is meant to be seen by the public right now.
A passing thought...I posted this on The Chipmunks forum earlier in General Chat, but I thought I'd make a slightly lengthened and altered version of it as a journal here.Earlier today I read a comment on here saying that "everything in the live action movies was sooooooooooooooooo much better than the 80's cartoon". I wanted so desperately to reply, but the person who made the comment already had my blocked for reporting one of their friends for recolors.CGI may have taken over this fandom. It may have brought with it a ton of idiots. People that recolor, repitch. People that have no grasp of the characters' actual personalities. Because, like it or not, the movies themselves mess with all of those things. They don't repitch or recolor, of course. Although they did change colors significantly, specifically the eye colors, from The Chipmunks and Chipettes cartoon counterparts.A lot of people in this fandom, mainly CGI people, you can't deny, care more about their 'OC's'(which in actuality aren't
Happy 30th Anniversary!I wanted to write a journal for the anniversary of the 80's cartoon, so I'm just going to use the same content as I did on my forum post about it a couple of hours ago. Thirty years ago today, a television show that is close to all hour hearts premiered.Alvin and The ChipmunksThe Chipmunks have existed now for 55 years, but the 80's renditions of them have only existed for 30.Three decades.Alvin and The Chipmunks, later renamed The Chipmunks, and even later The Chipmunks Go to the Movies, lasted for eight whole seasons. From 1983-1990. Wonderfully successful for a little Saturday morning cartoon.For the years after, the first few seasons aired in syndication on networks like Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network.This show introduced The Chipettes. It was the reason for the success of many albums. It spawned a huge theatrical movie with breatht
