London, 16th March 2015 – The world-renowned Chipmunks are bringing havoc and humour to Nick Jr. in the new series ALVINNN!!! and The Chipmunks, premiering on Friday 10th April at 5:30pm. The series follows David Seville, a father trying to raise the cheeky Chipmunks - Alvin, Simon, Theodore and the Chipettes - Brittany, Jeanette and Eleanor.
The series marks the return of the property to television after 20 years with the beloved characters reimagined in new CG-animation. In addition, each episode will feature an original song. The series is created by Janice Karman and produced by Bagdasarian Productions and OuiDo! Productions.
In the premiere episode “Principal Interest,” Alvin is not thrilled about going back to school; that is, until he sees the new Principal and develops a crush.
