Added DiffLines:

* GrowingTheBeard: Many credit the 80s series for developing the contemporary designs of the Chipmunks as well as Simon and Theodore's individualpersonalities. Their stilted speech was also gradually fazed out during the show's run, making them much better at delivering gags.

* CriticalDissonance: Seriously, people had nicer things to say about ''Film/TransformersRevengeOfTheFallen''. For this movie, it didn't do very well with the critics in the first place, but at least some of them liked it. The reaction was the same for the sequel. But by the time the third one came out, it became almost unanimous that the series had outstayed its welcome, and this hit a tipping point in 2015. To clarify, the third movie did horribly with the critics but was among the highest-grossing films at the time. The critics were quick to make insinuations on what kind of person would actually like such a movie, as reflected in the Website/RottenTomatoes consensus:
-->''"Lazy, rote and grating, Chipwrecked is the LowestCommonDenominator family entertainment that is strictly for the very, very, very young at heart."''

** The fourth movie fell into Sequelitis since when Fox found themselves without the ''Star Wars'' franchise after 35 years and attempted to compete with the now rival series by releasing the fourth movie the same day ''The Force Awakens'' came out, and ''Road Chip'' was blasted by critics'.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: [[http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/74104 This flash animation]] portrays the Chipmunks as gangsta rappers who rant about how Dave treated them like garbage behind the scenes. The funny thing about this is that, minus the gangsta rapping, some people see Dave and the Chimpmunks as a DysfunctionalFamily long before it was even made.

* EpilepticTree: The Chipmunks and Chipettes grew to human size after coming in contact with the same chemical that mutated [[Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles the Ninja Turtles]] (which makes sense, as both series' 80s incarnations were produced by Murakami-Wolf-Swenson, although they only did this series for a few EPs).

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* BaseBreaker:
** Dave Seville is either a kind hearted man who loves his family but gives them tough love or an annoying father who treats them like garbage. The above parody (See AlternateCharacterInterpretation) hasn't helped this.
** The Chipmunks' transition from human-sized furries to realistic actual-size chipmunks fits here too, despite the overrated box office results.
