Despite being drawn in color, the show was played in black-and-white format in primetime against the hit ''Series/WagonTrain'' though it didn't fare well in prime time and was cancelled after the first season. Though the characters themselves proved to be enormously popular with young viewers the show popped in in repeats on {{CBS}} Saturday morning in 1962, airing to widespread success for three seasons.

It follows the lives and shenanigans of the Chipmunks (in this series, they were further developed as a trio of rambunctious kids) as they often cause mischief towards their high-tempered human father figure and manager Dave Seville, who was based on the series' creator, Ross Bagdasarian, (Sr.). Bagdasarian provided the speaking and signing to the three rodents as well as voicing the hapless bachelor Dave.

Sometimes in 1994, Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} picked up broadcast rights for the show and ran the episodes daily until early 1995. During that time as well as sometime afterwards, the individual cartoons and musical segments were inserted into episodes of ''Series/{{Weinerville}}''. The show ultimately vanished from the airways.

Added DiffLines:

* TotemPoleTrench: Seen in "Disk Jockey," when the Chipmunks do this to try and get a radio station to play their new record (wearing a long coat, with Alvin on top wearing a hat and wig), and they probably would have succeeded if Theodore hadn't poked his head out of the disguise and said, "You're welcome!" among being thanked by the DJ.

Added DiffLines:

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Simon and Theodore lack their distinctive personalities that fans of the later medias are used to, usually little more than more well behaved counterparts to Alvin. Dave is also noticeably more of a comedic hot head here.
