Real fans of Alvin and The Chipmunks eschew the tacky CGI movie and its squeakquels. They spit on the saccharine animated series. They even mock the original 1958 novelty record, even though it won three Grammys.
They’ll tell you the only real Chipmunks are Alvin, Simon, and Theodore Roosevelt, a sly bit of propaganda to make the president less frightening to young children. Honor his memory today with this fine T-shirt.
sad to be done. overjoyed to have gotten to do it as briefly as i did. wish i’d have been there the whole time. love that i got to work with mike and laura, who meant so much to me when i was a fan coming up. bagley is a legend and i got to write “Fantastic Four #1” with both our names on the cover. i’ll miss those kids forever. and the people that read it are, literally, the greatest human beings that walk the earth. or maybe the most kind. sometimes i get those confused.
