** Dave exclaiming "I made that record once!" in regards to the Chipmunks wanting to sing the song is in regards to [[ActorAllusion Ross Bagdasarian]] doesn't consider "Witch Doctor" not being a Chipmunks song, the first true song by the Chipmunk Trio being "The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don't Be Late)."
