Alvin and the Chipmunks first aired in the 80’s. The back story to the Chipmunks is that they were left on Dave Seville’s doorstep by their mother because she wasn’t able to care for them. After Dave takes them in he finds out that they can talk, and eventually talk. The chipmunks soon perform in different places as Dave being their manager. But of course they’ll always be his “boys”. The bets part of the show is obviously the quotable “Aaaaalviiiiin!”.

Chipmunk Adventure Movie Trailer:

The Chipmunk Adventure was my favorite movie because they brought in the Chipmunks counterparts the Chipettes. Alvin=Brittany. Simon=Janette. Theodore=Eleanor. In this film the Chipmunks and the Chipettes race each other around the world fo $100,000 they are promised by Klaus and Claudia Vorstein/Furschtein. The brother – sister duo have hidden diamonds and money inside the Chipmunk and Chipette dolls that the kids leave at certain drop spots. This movie has a lot of hilarious scenes and great songs.

Rugrats: One of my favorite shows growing up. The babies (Tommy, Chuckie, Phil and Lil (eventually joined by Dil and Kimi)) would get int everyday adventures using their imaginations as they left the play pen. Of course the parents can’t communicate with them because all they hear is ‘baby talk’. But of course the babies can communicate with each other. And we can’t forget Angelica. The three-year-old who can communicate with both ‘Grown-up peoples’ and the babies. She will always try to manipulate both parties into doing things she wants done but always ends up in trouble because  the babies can’t be held accountable. This was just a great show and made me question if there really is a lot going on with babies when adults don’t pay attention.

Ahh! Real Monsters: This show is like the old day Monsters Inc. The monsters live in the city dump underneath miles of garbage where they attend Scare School ran by the Gromble (that of which I still don’t know if they’re a boy or girl). The three main characters Ickis, Krum, and Oblena are friends who are trying to make their way through school and scares at night without exposing their secret to the outside world, and the monster hunter Simon. I loved this show because it was at the other end of the spectrum of cartoon ideas in the 90’s. They cartoons at this time were all about babies or pre-teens getting through life. This show brings a light-hearted and comedic side to monsters, the thing children fear the most when they’re young.
