The chipmunks are back and at it again in another collection of the classic television series captured in a focused format to honor the holiday’s coming up.  This three disc set contains a number of specific and themed episodes showing Alvin, Simon & Theodore in all of their chipmunk glory!

The first disc called “Trick or Treason” contains five episodes of the classic trio’s scariest adventures.  The episodes Trick or Treason, Babysitter Fright Night, Theodore’s Life as a Dog, Nightmare on Seville Street and No Chipmunk is an Island capture Alvin, Simon and Theodore at their Halloweeniest best!  The set even includes the chipmunk rendition of the Monster Mash!

In Alvin’s Thanksgiving Celebration we get to see the chipmunks in four episodes that capture all the fun and excitement these guys have on turkey day!  The episode A Chipmunk Celebration we get to the chipmunks involved in a Thanksgiving day community play filled with the usual chipmunk turmoil.  The other three episodes on the disc are Food for Thought, Cookie Chomper III and Dave’s Getting Married, where we get to see Dave not only get married but also introduce three new kids to the musical family!

The third but certainly not least disc contains three Christmas themed episodes containing some of the most widely known and celebrated chipmunk songs and episodes ever.  Yes even the fan favorite The Chipmunk Song is included!  On this disc the kids show their talents by getting a gig at Carnegie Hall, but run into their usual chipmunk mischeif and must find a way to save the day and in this case Christmas!

All three discs contain 12 classic family adventures with the Chipmunks celbrating three of the best holidays of the year.  These discs do not contain any Bonus Features but getting to watch these fun filled episodes throughout the year and for generations to come!
