* MoneyDearBoy: Creator/DavidCross has made no secret that he is only in these movies for the paycheck, publicly noting in an interview that his salary from the first film was larger than any other project he had been working on and helped him pay for a new house. He seems to have had enough with ''Chipwrecked'' though, which he called "literally, without question, the most unpleasant experience I've ever had in my professional life".

Added DiffLines:

* UnderminedByReality: The first one has a story/moral in which the three chipmunks realize that fame and fortune is not all it is cracked out to be, and leave the seemingly superficial lifestyle, and the money, behind to enjoy an apparently better down-to-earth life with Dave. Family being more important that materialism is a fairly common Aesop... but when one realises that the movie is completely MerchandiseDriven, and was made to sell tickets, [=CDs=], toys, video games and other merchandise, the moral of turning your back on materialism seems kind of hollow.

Added DiffLines:

* FranchiseKiller: Averted for the entire franchise, since the below-mentioned ''ALVINNN!!! And The Chipmunks'' did well enough to escape this fate. As noted above, however, played straight for the live-action film series.

** According to Ross Bagdasarian Jr. (and Zachary Levi) the piano seen in the movie is the actual piano Ross Bagdasarian Sr. used to write and perform "The Chipmunk Song" as well as "The Witch Doctor" that launched the Chipmunks franchise.

* SoMyKidsCanWatch: Zachary Levi's reason for doing ''The Squeakquel'' was so once he had kids of his own, he could watch this film with them.

Added DiffLines:

* AccidentallyCorrectWriting: To further distinguish chipmunk from chipmunk during the first part of the movie, Alvin and Theodore's eyes are recolored brownish-amber and green, respectively, while Simon keeps his blue eyes. Blue eyes are said to be the weakest common eye color and more likely to need glasses than green or brown.

** Different episodes, in different forms, continually pop up on various different video sharing sites, such as Website/YouTube or Dailymotion, though they do suffer from being pulled for copyright, whether from Bagdasarian Productions, or other companies such as WarnerBros (particularly uploads from Creator/CartoonNetwork recordings).

* MilestoneCelebration: Just barely averted. Ross Bagdasarian Jr. agreed to the project when he thought that it would be released in 2008, just in time for the Chipmunks' 50th anniversary. By the time he signed on, Universal informed him that they wanted it ready by that coming Christmas.
