* UnderminedByReality: The first movie 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.

* HarsherInHindsight: In "The Squeakel", Alvin says to Ian "In the words of The Donald, you're fired!" Fast forward eight years, and said Donald is famous for trying to ban Muslims from America, justifying the actions of white supremacists, banning trans people from the army, lusting for his daughter, and the phrase "grab 'em by the pussy".

* SeasonalRot: During the DiC era of the series, the stories, as well as the overall production, slowly, yet steadily, grew weaker and weaker, compared to the quality of the earlier, Ruby-Spears era.

* ValuesDissonance: "ALLLVIIIIN!!!!" In the 60s, it was a harmless gag. In the new millennium, it sounds indicative of parental abuse. It's remained a staple of each installment regardless.

** The break in "Ragtime Cowboy Joe" had Alvin playing around with a gun. Unthinkable if the song came out in TheNewTens.

* AccidentallyAccurate: 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.

** Charlene was the first Chipette. She appeared in only one song before being replaced with Brittany and her sisters the following year. She has never officially appeared in anything besides her sole song, however fans noticed that an unnamed chipmunk girl in a red dress looked ''a lot'' like Charlene. Thus, she's considered Charlene and Charlene is never drawn in anything but a [[AgeInappropriateDress rather skimpy]] [[LadyInRed red dress]]. When she appears in fanworks she's usually a [[LongLongRelative long-lost sister]] or cousin to the Chipettes.
