The Chipmunk Adventure

     The Furschtein Siblings

Alvin and the Chipmunks Meet Frankenstein

    Doktor Frankenstein 
Voiced by:

As his last name may hint, Frankenstein is a mad scientist who inhabits the new attraction “Frankenstein’s Castle” at the Universal Studios Hollywood spoof Majestic Movie Studios where he makes another monster. When he spots the Chipmunks (who, not only missed their own show, but are locked inside the theme park) spying on him, Frankenstein sends his creation after them, though when later tracking the creature, Frankenstein spots him at the Sevilles’ home, and, angered at the monster's benevolence kidnaps Alvin to make the red-clad Chipmunk into his new monster.

    “Frankie” the Frankenstein Monster 
Vocals by:

A monster created by Doktor Frankenstein, who eventually befriends the Chipmunks.

  • Big Damn Heroes: Along with Theodore and Simon, little late to save Alvin from the potion forcibly given to him by Doktor Frankenstein that’ll make him into a zany cartoonish monster but does rescue him before the process could be completed.
    • Toward the end of the movie, a disguised Frankenstein sees Alvin (who was transformed into a zany cartoon monster by the mad doctor but couldn't finish the process) back to normal but realizes if he shocks Alvin he will cause the Chipmunk to change back, so the doctor turns Alvin’s microphone to a high revere. Cue Frankie showing up and grabbing the doctor. As the Frankenstein Monster carries his creator, Frankie slips and Dr. Frankenstein grabs the microphone to steady himself, only to be shocked. This also exposes himself to the public, but the Chipmunks (mainly Theodore) come to his rescue.
  • Captain Ersatz: Basically the animated version of Universal's Frankenstein Monster played by Boris Karloff.
  • Drives Like Crazy: As a result of Alvin teaching him how, he drives tourists around the sets in a bus rather recklessly.

  • Evil Minions: For Frankenstein at first.
  • In-Series Nickname: Is called “Frankie” by the Chipmunks, mainly Theodore.
  • Manchild
  • No Brows
  • Suddenly Voiced: Is given a voice at the end of the movie, though it’s a Chipmunk voice.
  • The Unintelligible: At least toward the end.
  • Vocal Dissonance: In the end when he finally speaks, he talks like a Chipmunk.
