Alvin & The Chipmunks – A Chipmunk Valentine


Picture: C-     Sound: C     Extras: D     Episodes: C-



In Paramount’s drive to continue to offer as much Alvin & The Chipmunks on DVD, they have issued the very mixed A Chipmunk Valentine from the 1980s series (1984 – 1989) that I often consider the nadir of the franchise.  Some fans will take anything with the trio, but I am not as impressed.  The shows here include:


A Chipmunk Valentine

Dr. Simon & Mr. Heart-Throb

Dear Diary

Theodore & Juliet



These are loosely connected to the holiday at best and are amusing at best, but it is just nothing special.  The 1.33 X 1 image in all four shows looks like VHS practically with all the aliasing errors and the poor inconsistent color does not help matters.  The Dolby Digital 2.0 is simple stereo at best, but is flat.  There are no extras.
