Product Description

Lights¡­camera¡­Alvin! Alvin? "Allll-vin!" Yes, it¡¯s everyone¡¯s favorite singing chipmunks-Alvin, Simon, and Theodore-in their very first full-length motion picture. And what a film it is! Filled with thrilling adventure, toe-tapping songs and exotic global locations, THE CHIPMUNK ADVENTURE is an awesome animated odyssey. When Dave Seville embarks on a solo business trip to Europe, a disappointed Simon, Theodore and Alvin are left at home in the care of the accident-prone Miss Miller. But soon Alvin has agreed to an offer that will allow the boys to become jet-setters of their own-by participating in an around-the world hot-air balloon race! Their main competitors in the airborne adventure are the Chipettes-Brittany, Jeanette and Eleanor-but their real opponents turn out to be Klaus and Claudia, two conniving international crooks who have cooked up the "race" as a front for their worldwide diamond smuggling operation! Join the laughs, music and mayhem as the Chipmunks and the Chipettes take off on their hilarious high-flying adventure.

This original, 1987 all-animated Chipmunk movie is a worldwide adventure featuring the Chipmunks, Chipettes, international crooks, various thugs, and a healthy dose of danger, natural disaster, famous scenery, and cute little animals. It all starts when Dave Seville leaves Alvin, Theodore, and Simon Chipmunk home under the care of Ms. Miller while he travels to Europe on business. Sore at being left behind, Alvin challenges Brittany from the Chipettes to the video game "Around the World" and his boast that he could beat her traveling around the world in a real hot air balloon is overheard by Claudia and Klaus, a pair of international crooks searching for an innocent courier to deliver a load of illegal diamonds to various places around the world. The crooks wager a million dollars on the Chipmunks and Chipettes to see who can race around the world the fastest, providing the hot air balloons, all necessary supplies, and the promise of $100,000 to the winner. Stalked by various thugs and encountering obstacles that range from hurricanes to snakes, tribes bent on worshiping and then sacrificing Alvin, and even a baby penguin that needs to be reunited with its parents in Antarctica, the Chipmunks and Chipettes sing their way around the globe, defeating villains that cross their paths and eventually learning the truth about the illegal cargo they're transporting. In the end, the Chipmunks and Chipettes combine forces in hopes of bringing Claudia and Klaus to justice while ensuring they all return home in one piece. This fantastical Chipmunk journey is suspenseful, funny, full of catchy music, and appropriate for ages 5 and older. Bonus features include original artwork from the movie and a CD with all 11 songs from the movie. (Ages 5 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

  • Great family movie!!
    I watched this as a child, and was so excited to find here on Amazon for my kids. My children loved it and watched it twice the first day. (They are even boys!) The music is so cute and I love the storyline. This movie also comes with a CD of all the songs which is a nice bonus for trips in the car. Definately a must-have for every family!!...more info
  • I'd Give This Movie 100 Stars If I Could!!!!
    If kids don't have this movie or have never seen it, they've NO idea what they're missing!!!! This is by far my all-time fave movie in the world! I've watched it so many times I can practically recite half the movie almost word-for-word & I can say the lines with each character while watching the movie, without looking up! Huge Chipmunk fan here, if you couldn't tell already. I may not own everything that has to do with them, but I do have quite a bit. If I'd more money I would so buy every single item on here that I don't have. But, alas, I have to wait patiently for when I do have the money & am not spending it on Ninja Turtle things - my other all-time fave cartoon.
    But, yes, this movie is Awesome! The best ever! Kids MUST see this movie!!! I know kids who've never seen the cartoon, yet love this movie anyway thanks to me! *grins* Though, I SWEAR parts of it have been cut out. I got it on VHS back on my 17th birthday in 2001. There's part of the movie that got cut out, but I can't prove it, because somebody taped over the original version I had - thus the bad thing about taping stuff on blank tapes off television. I just wish I could find the original version in the original casing & watch it & prove that there ARE parts of the movie missing - All Chipette parts too! Like when they crash the balloon after the hurricane - Brittany says something about having to blow dry her hair that morning, that's why they can't use it to get the balloon back up & running again. And then when they return the penguin - the baby penguin hugs Eleanor again when they're all in the balloon about to leave the lil' guy behind & Eleanor is supposed to tel him, "No, you better stay here with your Momma." I think there's another part missing too, but I can't think of it at the moment.
    Well, enough of my rambling & thanks for listening!

  • We Just Love This Movie
    I remember taking my twin daughters to the movie theater to see The Chipmunk Movie. It was one of their favorites and I was thrilled to see it on DVD. I purchased the DVD a few months ago and have enjoyed watching it with my now 24-year-old twins. They remember the songs and many of the great lines in this movie. It was also nice to introduce it to my 12-year-old nephew. He watches it every times he visits. His sister was named Brittany from the movie and how thrilled my sister was to receive her own Chipmunk Adventure DVD. She said it was the best Christmas present that she received. 5 stars!!!!!...more info

  • DVD Order Chipmunks Adventure

    I SO MISS THE 80'S :p...more info
    I found this movie at Barnes and Noble and I had to buy it for my two kids, but mostly for myself because I LOVED this movie as a kid. Watching it again after so many years brought tears to my eyes from the memories of my childhood. I also have to say the music was absolutly wonderful. I think I loved this movie more now as an adult than I did as a kid. It's the kind of movie you can watch with your kids and enjoy it just as much, if not more, than they do!...more info
  • Chimpmunk adventure
    When this movie was first released in 1987 I was amazed at the art work and how it gave the characters a special charm. I enjoyed it very much and could not wait for it to come out on DVD. Alas thinking they could improve it they had to go and digitaly remaster the thing. Now the colors are brighter and the film seems to be a bit jerky at times. The characters are too
    cartoony. The lack of the warmer colors diminish the original quailty of the film. I waited along time only to be disappointed.
    For a first time viewer this movie will still have alot of charm and you and your kids will love it. I give the original version a 5 STAR rating. The DVD only a 3. I will be looking to buy a vhs version with the original art work and magic that I enjoyed prior to remastering.

  • Childhood Memories Resurrected
    I LOVED this movie as a child. I rented it every time I went to the movie store until my parents started telling me no. I was so excited to find it and even more excited to find that I like it just as much now.
    I would reccommend this movie to anyone who was a Chipmuncks fan and even people who just loved 80s cartoons.
    In my opinion, the best part of the movie is the "sing off" between the chipmuncks and chipettes. The song came back to me in no time.
    Love it. Love it. Love it. ...more info
  • brand new, fast delivery, a classic
    I've loved this movie since I was a little kid and I got it for my four younger siblings and they love it too. It's cute, funny, and not corny like most children's movies. The delivery was quick, the condition was perfect, the price was great. Brought back memories... :)...more info
  • An oldie but goodie
    I grew up with this movie and totally loved it! I now have a two year old son and he LOVES it too. He is totally glued to the movie and when the songs start he gets up and dances, sings and claps his hands. The final bonus to this is that I still love it so it works!!! Great for the whole family to enjoy!...more info
  • Better than now
    The old chipmunks are way better than the new ones, this is a classic for all kids to watch....more info
    This movie has been my favorite since I was like 4 or 5 years old and I just turned 21. it is most definitely shelf-worthy.
    seriously buy this movie no matter your age...more info
  • WONDERFUL film, but not quite as wonderful dvd as I'd hoped
    This is a film I've loved ever since I was a child, and even bought the VHS on Amazon a couple of years ago back when the dvd wasn't available.

    The dvd version of this film has a few errors in it, such as the fact that several scenes were mysteriously 'cut' -- such as is the case where the Chipets are kidnapped in Cairo and taken into the palace of a young prince, where a segment has been cut-out when the prince is talking to the girls. This also happens twice again when the Chipmunks are in Fiji -- once when a small segment is cut while the boys are around the camp fire, and then again later in the village. This happened a couple other times around the film, along with the fact that some poor transitioning/fade effects were added into the dvd version of the movie between scene changes so that scenes would 'fade together'.

    Apart from all that, though, it's still a wonderful "5 star" film on its on. "The Chipmunk Adventure" has a great plot, and music that's just as great! I think it's a film people of all ages can enjoy, and definitely worth an 'animated classic' title.

  • The best Chipmunk movie for the whole family
    This was one of the best Chipmunk movies that I have ever seen. It is a great movie for the family. I am a big Alvin and the Chipmunks fan. I showed this to my nephew and he loved it. The songs are great. It will make you laugh and cry and if you grew up with the chipmunks like I did it will make you relive your childhood all over again. I cannot wait until the actual cartoon series is released on dvd. I will definitley add that to my chipmunk dvd collection. This movie is a must see! ...more info
  • An Nostalgic Adventure
    I was a child of the 90s. I remember watching Disney Channel before it became a 'tween girl' fad channel. I remember Toon-in-Tuesdays, and that's how I came upon The Chipmunk Adventure. It's a classic for me. I decided to pick it up after seeing the new Chipmunk movie in theaters. This film is full of catchy music, from 'The Girls of Rock & Roll' to 'Woolly Boolly.' What surprised me is that, unlike most animated shows of the early 90s, this one wasn't drowning in cheesiness. It had humor, as well as a couple of truly sentimental moments. It brought back a lot of memories for me, and I actually watched it two consecutive days, which is rare. If you're thinking about buying this movie, I'd certainly reccommend it. It's not too expensive, and you're getting a solid movie, long enough that you could sit down and enjoy with your kids, yet short enough it won't take up your whole day. The Chipmunk Adventure is an adventure for everyone!...more info

And if you have seen it, then you do not this review to convince yourself to buy it....more info
  • My son loves this movie!
    When I was a child I loved this Chipmunk movie and bought it for my son who loves the newer Chipmunk movie. After watching the movie this became my son's favorite Chipmunk movie. He loves the songs just as I did as a kid. I also think it's cool how they added a CD of the songs in the movie. Classic movie that all Alvin and The Chipmunk fans should have....more info

  • Claude
    A tiny cute penguin, Sophie, Claude, were are the girls of rock and roll, Mrs.Miller. SO GOOD. This is when I love amazon most, my sister and I searched off and on for this and then one day it appeared (I know Amazon didn't have anything to do with putting it on DVD) and it is easy to get and I have an excuse to add another item so that I can get free shipping....more info
  • a Nostalgic favorite
    My sister actually bought this and brought it over to watch at my apartment the other day. I'm 24 and she's 20 but we had both watched this when we were younger (it actually came out a year before my sister was born!) and loved it then. Watching it the other day was the first time we had seen it since we were quite small and it was as fun and amusing as we remembered.

    Then and now we love the idea of traveling around the world and doing fun (and sometimes dangerous) things. The songs are cute and funny. My sister and I got a particular kick out of watching Brittany and Jeanette try to snake charm with the song about "gettin' lucky with you." I'd actually love to hear some of those songs non-Chipmunkified so that it'd be easier to sing along with but they are perfectly fun to sing as is too.

    When we were little we liked Alvin and Brittany the best as characters but as adults we found them to be annoying and liked characters like Simon much better. His dry humor when he instructs Alvin to put the balloon by the fountain and Alvin sticks it in the trees ("Like I said, in the tree.") made us crack up. We never used to like him.

    Anyway I found it adorable and I'm buying a copy for myself now. ...more info

    This was great when it came out and is still great by today's standards. Great hand drawn animation, Excellent music and characters. A great example of the way feature length animated movies were and should be....more info
  • 80' Classic
    This is truly a good find. The animation has great style and crisp scenes. The sound quality is great also, with optional surround sound, and stereo. It does not sound stifled or old.
    The songs are great, and the story is adorable. I recommend this movie completely....more info
  • This Movie's Age Shows, Strictly for Nostalgia
    An OK movie, didn't really take the plot too seriously, just wanted to look at the animated Chipmunks for the first time in years after seeing the 2007 live-action movie.

    As expected, looks like an early 90's kid's movie, but the songs weren't bad and it's pretty fun. Make you remember the time....more info

  • One of my all-time faves
    Highly appealing, great graphics, entertaining storyline, and fantastic music. I love this movie! I watched it all the time as a child (my cousins and I would act out all the music scenes) and the music and movie are still great to watch and listen to today. I am 30 years old and would recommend this to anyone who grew up in the 80's or even someone with kids or grandkids today. ...more info

  • Flashback of my childhood through my children's eyes!
    This is the most entertaining and fantastic movie! It holds everything good that the Chipmunks are known for and took me back to my childhood. My children (ages 6 and 4) LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the movie for all that it has - the story, the characters, the music and the overall adventure. It is touching to see them get into the movie so much that they turn to me to let me know what is happening and yet, after watching it over 30 times already, no one in the house is tired of the Chipmunk Adventure yet! ...more info
  • One of the Best Chipmunk Videos
    My daughter requested this DVD because she was very young when we had it on VHS. It was her favorite chipmunk movie. I totally recommend it!...more info
  • A classic
    This is one of my favorite animated movies. I remember watching this when I was a kid and just saw that it was on DVD the other day. I literally jumped up and started freaking out when I saw it. I have it on VHS but the tape is so old and the box is worn so when I saw it on DVD I instantly got it. This movie is great for all ages and no matter how many times you watch it you don't tire from it. The songs are fun and will make you sing along everytime you hear them. Another classic that remains one of my favs....more info
  • Good show!
    My girlfriend was ranting and raving about this movie for several months. She enjoyed watching it as a child. I looked all over for the movie and was unable to locate a copy locally ( I live in the Bahamas) and came to Amazon and BOOM there it was. The smile on her face when i gave her the DVD was priceless!!!! Thank you Amazon and Alivin (even though i find the chipmunks voice to be VERY annoying!!!)...more info
  • Alvin and the Chipmunks DVD's
    What is there not to like about these adorable rodents with their cute high pitched voices. I originally ordered a CD of Alvin to show my daughter. I had precious memories of listening to Alvin in my childhood and wanted to continue the tradition. Amazingly, just after that, the movie of Alvin and the chipmunks came out at the cinema. My daughter was so excited! She proceeded to tell all her friends about Alvin, before the movie had even come out. An excellent gift for young ones (or those young at heart)....more info

  • The Chipmunk Adventure
    My 5 year old daughter and I found bits and pieces of this movie on youtube. She particularly fell in love with the song "Girls of Rock & Roll." She asked me to play it so many times that I had to go out and find the video. I grew up with the Chipmunks and the addition of 'The Chippettes' was a very smart piece of work. The movie is wonderful if you're 5, but adults won't want to see it more than once (if that.)...more info

  • Chipsmunks live on and on
    Many cartoon characters are recognizable but none have changes with the times as well as the chipmunks. The DVD is chock full of songs and my grand children love it. Their deistintive high pitched voices gives them the characters that they are. If you enjoy cartoons as much as I do, you'll love this DVD....more info

  • AMAZING movie . . . what's with the cover art?
    The movie is, of course, a classic and there are applicable reviews on the original release . . . but . . . is this version any different? If there're any additional features, I'll double dip, otherwise, I'll stick with the original DVD release. I already have the soundtrack, so i don't need a "bonus CD"

    But more importantly what is with this cover art?! First of all the characters are WAY off model, but there's something much more sinister at play here- Anyone that's seen the movie knows that there are two balloons in play in the movie- one with the three chipmunks and one with the three chipmunks. This artwork shows us the three boys in one balloon (barely fitting, btw), and in the other balloon we have . . . the villains of the movie Clause and Claidia . . . so where are the three chipettes? Well, as Alvin happily shows off a diamond . . . Theodore holds desperately on to Brittany hovering hundreds of feet above the ground. Quite frankly I'm worried about the fate of Jeanette and Elonore based on this image . . . which of course also reflects NOTHING of the movie....more info
