* 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.

* 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'.
