Alvin and the Chipmunks | Saturday Morning A Capella

In their latest addition to their "Saturday Morning A Capella" playlist, YouTube channel Triforcefilms has unveiled an a capella version of the theme song of the classic 1980s Alvin and the Chipmunks animated series, which you can watch in the super music video below!

In the video clip, Mr. Dooves records himself singing and humming different parts (which you can see individually), while the theme song's familiar opening titles play in the centre of the screen. It's another of those videos you can watch multiple times, yet continue to notice new things!:

Here's the original Alvin and the Chipmunks theme song, in all its glory!:

Watch out cause here we come
It's been a while but we're back with style
So get set to have some fun
We'll bring you action and satisfaction

We're the Chipmunks
We're the Chipmunks
Guaranteed to brighten your day

When you feel like a laugh
Give us a call, we'll give you our all
And if you feel like a song
Tune in to us and sing right along

We're the Chipmunks
Coming on stronger than ever before
We're the Chipmunks
Alvin, Simon, Theodore

Doo Doo, Doo-Doo-Doo-Doo
Doo Doo, Doo-Doo-Doo-Doo

Alvin, Simon and Theodore are brothers who tour the world as famous rock stars. Completely normal... right? Did I also mention that they're Chipmunks? Along with their best friends, The Chipettes, Alvin and his chipmunk brothers cause tons of trouble on and off the stage while their dad, Dave, tries to manage these three rambunctious rodents, while writing all of their hit songs. Alvin, Theodore, and Simon are so different, it's hard to believe that they came from the same litter. With little voices and BIG personalities, there will be no shortage of adventures when these Chipmunks hit the stage! Alvin and the Chipmunks ran for 102 episodes over eight seasons. The series was renamed The Chipmunks for its sixth season in 1988 when The Chipettes became main characters on the show. The series was renamed again as The Chipmunks Go to the Movies for the shows eighth and final season, which premiered in 1990. Alvin and the Chipmunks is famous for introducing The Chipettes into the franchise.

The 1980's Alvin and the Chipmunks animated series closely followed the outline of the Chipmunks' original 1960's animated series, The Alvin Show.

Alvin and the Chipmunks aired on Nickelodeon UK and Nickelodeon USA in the mid-1990s. The franchises latest CG-animated series, ALVINNN!!! and the Chipmunks, currently airs on Nickelodeon channels worldwide.
