Alvin and the Chipmunks The Mystery of the Easter Chipmunk





Alvin and the Chipmunks The Mystery of the Easter Chipmunk 


Alvin and the Chipmunks The Mystery of the Easter Chipmunk is coming out on DVD February 10, in the year of our Lord 2009. If you are reading this review past that date then you should be able to find it. This disc contains five episodes (The Easter Chipmunk, Snow Wrong, Special Kind of Champion, Thinking Cap Trap, and Luck O' The Chipmunks) that make it to the 66 minute mark. So one less episode than the Chipettes DVD, but the same amount of time.

The animation is at the same level as the previous release. The cartoon characters animate nicely, and there are some areas that show their age. The physical humor is present as in Snow Wrong Dave gets all wet numerous times. I love how the clumsy character responsible apologizes, and cleans up the mess. The friendly images of the Special Olympics is a really important thing.

The whole Easter Bunny, Easter Chipmunk thing ignores the resurrection of Jesus Christ, which bothered me. The lessons about having a good attitude, trying your best, being a good sport, and people liking you for you are all well received. I loved how Alvin learned from a disabled boy in the Special Kind of Champion episode. One of my own children has had developmental delay issues so it is nice to seen special needs children being portrayed so well.

My children have watched this DVD multiple times already. It has some replay value, but I am still not understanding why an entire season of this series was not released. There are enough good episodes, and interest in past cartoons that I believe an entire season would sell well. Alvin and the Chipmunks interest children enough that is what keeps it passing.

Alvin and the Chipmunks The Mystery of the Easter Chipmunk continues the intelligent design layout of the past release. The children love to sing along with the main theme song of Alvin and the Chipmunks. I must admit it is a fun tune that sticks in the head, and makes the cartoon an enjoyable experience.

The Easter Bunny, and Leprechauns are touched on in a couple of the episodes on Alvin and the Chipmunks The Mystery of the Easter Chipmunk. I really liked the Special Olympics, and Thinking Cap Trap episodes. In my opinion there is more good lessons than bad ones. Your children will eventually get exposed to certain bad ideas, so it can be used as an opportunity to deal with them early on.
