We Met Alvin & The Chipmunks… & the People Behind the Scenes (Giveaway too!)

POST UPDATE WINNER IS : LEE! Thanks everyone – we will see you for the next giveaway!! 2/22/10

There is nothing more exciting than to be invited to go to a movie screening or red carpet here in Los Angeles, but to do it with a correspondent, her two kids and experience the fun through the eyes of children as part of the event.

Mingle Media TV was invited to attend the Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel DVD launch party. We asked Andrea, from SavvySassyMoms, to come and (shh! one missed school) bring her two kids. Andrea got to interview director, Betty Thomas, choreographer, Rosero McCoy, producer, Ross Bagdasarian Jr and Chipettes founder Janice Karman.

The event was amazing and Fox Studios really had a nice program with a presentation and behind the scenes overview, kids activities from a sing-along to photo opps with the Chipmunks, dance lessons with Rosero McCoy, t-shirt coloring and snacks!

Personally speaking, I have always admired Betty Thomas (Emmy award winning actress) especially for her work on Hill Street Blues (my father was a policeman and loved that show). She has made several movies from Only You, The Brady Bunch Movie, Dr. Dolittle, 28 Days, I Spy, Charlie’s Angels and Surviving Christmas to name a few.

Rosero McCoy, Choreographer, mapped out the steps for Alvin, Simon and Theodore for the original Alvin and the Chipmunks movie and came back for the Squeakquel. He has also worked on Vanilla Sky and Randy Jackson’s America Dance Crew.

Ross Bagdasarian Jr. and his wife Janice Karman are the team responsible for the Alvin and the Chipmunks franchise today. The Chipmunks were originally created by Ross Bagdasarian Sr. in 1958 and Ross Jr took over the family business and with Karman, brought a new commitment to the characters.

  1. My stepson James adores the chipmunks. I would love to get this for him! I meant that exclamation mark too hehe. That is so cool that you got to go to that. I haven’t seen it yet..I know James has. He went with his mom.

  2. We haven’t seen the movie yet, but I bet my kids are going to love it. Just hearing the chipmunk voices is enough to get my kids laughing.

  3. We loved the movie from beginning to end and back again. But the best part is the after effect! My 4yo daughter brings her 3 furry friends ( the ones from McDonalds) to bed, the shower, to school, to breakfast, dinner…You get it. We are totally Chipmunked out here. lol.

    Great movie.

  4. Well we haven’t seen the movie yet – but our Alvin & the Chipmunks (1st movie) dvd is welting from the constant watching. Our 4 yr old laughs out loud and it’s the only movie that he does this too. Especially when the chipmunks have some …. gas… issues! He thinks it’s hysterical!
