I think Theodore's immaturity is momentarily. I'm sure Alvinnn!!! productions change their portrait of him someday in the future. He can't stay this immature forever no?
So since we have fanon here, I though we could share our own unique ideas for AATC. To be more accurate, ideas for episodes (any version of AATC). Feel free to fantasize, but keep your ideas at the appropriate level: lemons, hard swearing and violence won't be tolerated.
Is there a human character from any form of AATC media who you think is underrated?
I chose Digbee from the 80s series episode Wings Over Siesta Grande. It’s one of my favorite episodes from that series and I think Digbee has a lot of potential if he were brought back now or in a future series.
In fact, I put his treasure hunting experience to use in my fanfic series.
No idea, but probably Officer Dangus from 2015 series.
I can try to draw them too ? wonder how it will go
So, the thing is that I have my final exams this month and I always like to stop using social media, YouTube, etc, as long as my exams are in progress. It seems a bit excessive, but not allowing myself to use them during my exams even when I'm free helps me not get distracted later when I'm studying too. (Because I have a tendency to get distracted a lot while I study) Basically, I just remove social media, etc, altogether from my daily routine. It's a thing I'm used to, so therefore I will disappear from Discord and Twitter. (but might check strictly ONLY DMs on one specific day of the week) I'll be completely free after the 28th of this month.
I will still be moderating this forum because, as an admin, I'm responsible for doing so, but I won't be replying to threads, etc. (Except moderation threads/messages)
I know the forum is still in its early days, and the reason why I was kinda inactive a couple of weeks before too (e.g. I wanted to read Granditamias' fanfic and listen to AnUnexpectedFan's audio special and reply to their threads) was also because I was busy with the final days of high school. This is my last year in high school (considering "high school" ends at 12th grade)
I had also other ideas/plans in mind to help the forum grow but I wasn't able to carry them out due to the same reason. But the presence of you guys does help the forum gain some activity and I appreciate all of you guys who are currently a part of the forum in its early days.

Good luck with exams buddy. And don't worry, you still have your fellow members of Forum Staff Team here so it won't be without supervision.
I've read it. Man I enjoyed it a lot. Really good mystery.
This is more of an idea at the moment so I don’t wanna promise this will actually happen, but I have been wanting to make an AATC fangame based on the Alvinnn series. So far I gave it the working title “Super Tamian Adventure” and I initially wanted it to be a 8-bit platformer like Super Mario. I even made sprites of all 6 chipmunks, with Alvin having a much more complete moveset including jumping, sliding, balancing, and idle poses. I also made a form of in-game currency with an animated shine to it.
But since I recently got blender, I thought about making low poly models similar to an N64 game since I like that aesthetic and it would be easier to render. So I might end up changing the game to be a 3D collectathon like Banjo-Kazooie. However, due to my inexperience with modeling, that could be a ways off if it ever happens at all.
Seems like this could be good game. I like how you designed the characters in pixelated way. It looks awesome. To the inexperience, yeah that might take really long time to adjust to the 3D modelling. But still good luck, hopefully the game will come out someday in the future.
I got Blender recently. Once I learn how to use it, I wanna make low-poly models of the chipmunks for my hypothetical Alvinnn video game.
Wow Alvinnn video game, that'd be something. Good luck with that ??
BRITTANY: Alvin just stop being so irritating! Is it that hard for you?
Is it even a model of real life phone? Because I think he has some type of Iphone if I am not mistaken
My history with the Alvin and the Chipmunks franchise is technically still going on, even though a lot has happened to me already. When I joined the old AATC Fan Forum in January 2017, my introduction post there was paltry compared to what happened to me since. And because of this, I'm also not sure if I should update this post, or add another post to this thread, by including more significant fandom events that would happen to me since the writing of this post.
My true introduction to the Alvin and the Chipmunks franchise was actually the two Alvin Sing-Along VHS tapes from the 90s, consisting of song numbers from "The Alvin Show" from 1961. I have also heard the original "Chipmunk Song" on a Dr. Demento Christmas Compilation album, but other than that, I gradually grew indifferent of the franchise.
But then, in August 2016, I saw the Nostalgia Critic episode "reviewing" the first live-action movie from 2007. When the Critic character imitated the Chipmunk characters there (just like how he imitates other characters in other movies he reviews all the time), I noticed that (apart from the higher pitch) those imitations sounded... sped up, especially considering that there was one non-voiceover Chipmunks imitation he did that even looked sped-up. With all that in mind, as well as an earlier clip where he imitated Ian Hawke saying "Have you tried speeding up so it sounds like high-pitched ear penetration?", and my prior knowledge on how this technique works, my curiosity gradually peaked to the point where I started experimenting by recording recitations of The Chipmunk Adventure quotes very slowly in Audacity, and then using the "Change Speed" effect to speed it up by 2. After being satisfied with the results, I did more quote recitations, before moving on to made-up sketches, and finally reaching what I consider to be my breaking point when I recorded my first full-on Chipmunks cover.
I have since admitted to becoming a Chipmunks fan, but I have not even considered joining any AATC fan communities until I asked a genuine question on the AATC Wiki about whether Simon loves Alvin overall despite all the stress the latter gives the former. After a few back-&-forths with the admin there, he encouraged me to join that forum. Since then, my public fan activity has grown substantially, and even became friends with some other fans, to the point where I became more comfortable discussing my problems with them, than how I was doing so before.
Then there's this whole #ChangeTheChannel debacle back in April 2018, in which part of it condemned the Nostalgia Critic for existing past 2013, and since I became a fan of the franchise through an episode made in 2016, I felt that I should have known the NC was terrible enough for me to stop watching it before I could have possibly seen that episode. Because of that, I actually wished I never became a fan of AATC in the first place. I just simply wish things away from all of history if it's deemed to be terrible enough, and I really wanted to make up for becoming a fan of something through a terrible person. Then I was backed out of that mentality through the message of It's a Wonderful Life and every played-straight clone ever.
Again, a lot has happened to me since becoming a fan, including publishing quite a few fan covers & audio plays to the old forum, and later, the Wiki's Discord server, to the praise of my friends in the fandom. Some of them were adaptations of my own fan fiction scripts, while others were adaptations of others' fan fiction by request.
After being disgruntled over the laziness of other fan covers on YouTube, I started a YouTube channel in November 2017 called "AnUnexpectedChipmunksFan". I added "Chipmunks" to that username because YouTube is a more general platform and I want viewers to know what I'm a fan of. Even though I have already published a few legitimate fan covers there, I am winding down activity there partly because of fears of YouTube's ContentID system potentially blocking my cover videos, as it had already done so for a couple of attempted uploads.
Then, in December 2021, I finally buckled down to see the live-action movies after over 5 years of being a fan and yet refraining from seeing them solely because of their negative reception, simply because I was being convinced by other fans to see them anyway. You can see my first-impression review videos and hear my thoughts on these movies on my YouTube channel.
I really hope that this forum will give me just as much joy as the old AATC Fan Forum did!
Hey Avid, great to see you here
What was the last Eps or Film or whatever with the 80s chipmunk design?
I believe it was Alvin and the Chipmunks: Meet the Wolfman from 2000 year. Might be wrong though, I don't know.
Discord App if you have it. But also discord.com website

That looks kinda creepy, not gonna lie ?
you can just use my profile picture as the favicon.
Whatever that is.
Favicon is an icon associated with an URL that is displayed in various ways in browser's address bar or next to the site name in a bookmark.
I don't think we will use your profile pic, because this favicon should be something unique. Like the one Optimistic just released.
So the current favicon the forum uses is just a free stock photo of a chipmunk on a red background.
I was wondering if you guys have any better ideas for the favicon or are able to make a better one for the forum.
If you have any ideas, post them here!
Here is the current favicon:
I guess it could be enough for now. We will come with better ideas for sure anyway.
I use Mega Folder, but I got it from another person on Discord. I don't know if you will have access without requesting it. I may ask her if you could send a request and watch it through that.
I am sure this forum will bring the old memories back really fast
I think you’ll enjoy the 80’s series. The animation quality improves over the first 5 seasons.
Yeah I hope so. I saw some clips, and I have to say animation was pretty cool in later seasons.
Probably Charlene. I know there isn't much of her, but she has always seemed pretty and a great character to be in the show.
Yeah. AATC is my childhood. I didn't even know there was a fandom until I was about 9 or 10 years old. Then I joined the fandom at like 12. lol It's like ever since yesterday my mom, me, and one of my childhood best friends went to go and see the first movie in 2007 of the live-action films. Good times. :3
Then hopefully you will enjoy this forum. It surely needs such a passionate fans like you to grow
Hmmm this looks like really interesting character. Good job
Thanks for joining and testing out this forum during its early days. I didn't know you became a fan of AaTC so recently, though.
Well, I was fan for a longer time, but the fandom I joined only in November
Hello. I am Theodore and I joined AATC fandom back in November. To be more accurate, I joined AATC Discord server, so maybe some of you will know me from there lol.
What about my AATC experience? Well, I have seen all CGI movies and recently (last year) I started watching CGI series. I haven't seen 80s series yet, but I have it in plans too.
Aaaand, that's all about me for now. Now it's your time people to introduce yourself. Aloha.
This thread is for everything what includes Alvin and the Chipmunks and related stuff. Feel free to post here (on-topic ofc).
