Alvin and The Chipmunks are Back!! Alvin and the Chipettes in Cinderella,Cinderella Now on DVD

Do, Do, DoDoDoDo....we're the chipmunks...
yes, a sound reminiscent of the 1980s {well that marked their come back anyway}. A decade many of us try to forget but can't help but hearken back to and maybe even sing along to! The '80s a decade of unique rock/pop antics, big hair, and relatively substantial prosperity. Alvin and the Chipmunks and the Chipettes were the perfect refection of an era of outrageous fashion and rock and roll overload and now that children of the '80s are the parents of today imagine the surprising pleasure of sharing the "classics" with a new generation.

Alvin and the Chipettes in Cinderella, Cinderella brings a true classic to life in '80s cartoon classic fashion. Self-indulgent Chipette, Brittany, becomes fed up with responsibilities and fancies herself a modern day Cinderella. Her daydreams find Brittany the central character of a famous fairy tale complete with the fairy Godmunk and a handsome Prince Charming with a strong resemblance to you know who...that famous chipmunk, Alvin.

After the latest computer generated Chipmunk movies came out in theatres, our children discovered the chipmunks. A little glitzier, a little more real than cartoon I wondered how the old cartoons would compare in their eyes. With superfluous Alvin and Brittany and their personal counterparts, the musical numbers and the parodies of stories from tv, movies and fairy tales the classic '80s chipmunks actually entertained my modern gaggle of children ages 5-9.

I found it humourous that Alvie's Angels, a parody of '80s television's "Charlie's Angels", and The Brunch Club {sound somewhat familiar? If you said "The Breakfast Club" you could be showing your age!!} actually resonated with my children despite their lack of '80s pop culture knowledge. To them these stories are original and new! Funny how old is thought to be innovative, ignorance can be bliss in just such circumstances. My favourite the small Indiana Jones reference segment in Alvie's Angels and the "Eye-of-the-Tiger"-ish song "The Beast of the Jungle"...okay I am definitely showing my age and oh how I hate to admit my "child of the '80s" status.
Three episodes:
~Cinderella, Cinderella
~Alvie's Angels
~The Brunch Club
Running Time: 66 Minutes
Paramount Home Entertainment

If your children are newly discovering Alvin and his delightful band of Chipmunks and Chipettes or you, like me are a child of the 1980s harbouring a secret yearning for the good ole days {well the ole days anyhow} Alvin and the Chipettes Cinderella, Cinderella and other recent DVD releases of favourite Alvin and the Chipmunks episodes are a great addition to any collection!

  7. Hm.. well I was born in 1986 but I grew up with all the weird shows [alvin and the chipmunks, the smoggies, rainbow brite etc]. Watching tv shows and movies and documentaries from and about the 80's here's how I sum it up.. bad hair, terrible clothing, embarassing lingo--same old same =)

  17. Ahhh, the '80's!! Well, I was a youngster growing up during that era, so I don't know a lot about the world issues and politics, but I certainly loved the music in the '80's. Partly because my siblings were big into music and I listened to what I had to!!! Now.... You can dance if you want to, you can leave your friends behind............ ;-)

  25. Am I the only one who remember Garbage Pail Kids? They were these incredibly gross trading cards which were parodies of the Cabbage Patch Kids, and we loved them. I think I still have a stack somewhere.

    Also, did you know that Punky Brewster is out on DVD now?

  46. I could comment on the big hair or the movies or tv shows but what I remember most is the music. In fact, my husband, brother and I went to see Hot Tub Time Machine last night and my brother and I sang all the songs out loud all the way through the whole movie.

  52. Oh the 80's.... what a wonderful time! We had the best cartoons. My favorite thing about the 80's was the clothes. I love how everything on top was loose and everything on the bottom was tight.... I feel that's a more flattering look for me.. haha! And I am so glad jellies and leg warmers have made a comeback!
