Trivia: The Alvin Show

  • Actor Allusion: In one episode, Dave exclaims "I made that record once!" in regards to "Witch Doctor". This is because Ross Bagdasarian didn't consider "Witch Doctor" not technically being a Chipmunks song, the first true song by the Chipmunk Trio being "The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don't Be Late)".
  • Cross Dressing Voice:
    • June Foray does Alvin's angelic self in "Alvin's Alter Ego".
    • Alvin in the Italian dub.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Dave was the piano player living next to Jimmy Stewart's apartment as well as making appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show with The Chipmunks: Fevvol, Tani Ritter and that singing POW.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: There's never been a complete compilation tape/DVD or box set containing all the episodes. There exists only the aforementioned Sing Along tapes (which just have some of the musical segments) and a DVD called "The Very First Alvin Show" (which only contains one of the first episodes, along with the specials A Chipmunk Reunion and Rockin' Through the Decades).
  • Orphaned Reference: The musical segments used the Chipmunks' original recordings and many of them went unaltered. In "Sing a Goofy Song", Dave's line "Will you keep singing? The record isn't over with yet!" is somehow left intact.
  • Talking to Himself: Dave, Alvin, Simon, Theodore and Sam Valiant.
