And the exact nature of their relationship with Dave Seville remains a mystery. Now they're working at a Universal Studios type theme park, performing musical sets for patrons hourly.

Their versatility surpasses even that of radio's current darling, Kid Rock--they master grunge and rap with equal aplomb.

As if that weren't enough, the trio's dance moves rival those of The Flygirls during Jennifer Lopez's tenure.
I've always thought it a bit unfair that Alvin receives special billing, relegating Simon and Theodore to merely "The Chipmunks.Alvin And the Chipmunks Meet Frankenstein DVD part 1
Though Theodore's existence seems to be ruled by his stomach and his obsessive attachment to his teddy bear, he is so much more than a cute, fat baby. He is easily frightened, only because he is so sensitive. That sensitivity, perceived as a cowardly hinderance by some, enables him to connect to others with openness and compassion. While Theodore is the group's conscience, Simon is its voice of reason. Often appearing prudish, due to his proper diction and posture, Simon can let loose and get down and funky when the occasion calls for it.
Like many geniuses, he requires spectacles to correct his poor vision. This is unfortunate, simply because it re-enforces cultural stereotypes. Simon's intelligence can't be attributed solely to his eyewear. He studies very hard, and his braininess is due more to his natural sense of curiosity, than to his glasses. Both Simon and Theodore are whole, multi-faceted characters who deserve some recognition. They will never get it, however, because they are constantly overshadowed by the attention-seeking antics of Alvin.
A selfish and narcissistic creature, Alvin is the only chipmunk who deems it necessary to proclaim his identity loudly and boldly, in the form of a huge letter "A," on his wardrobe.

Being the frontman of a world-renowned supergroup is not enough to satisfy his monstrous ego. This is demonstrated symbolically in the movie when Alvin drinks Doktor Frankenstein's potion and is transformed into a crazed, rabid rodent. In teaching the creature how to get along with other children, the film is teaching young audiences to do the same. The movie becomes didactic in nature as it imprints on children the desired behavior they need to obtain in order to have friends of their own.
In addition, by befriending the monster, the three chipmunks are displaying acceptance of the "other". Theodore realizes that the monster has good intentions towards him as he retrieves his teddy bear from the monster outside his window. Theodore looks past the monster's physique to empathize and accept him for who he is and not for what he looks like.
This lesson in friendship redefines monstrosity for the young audience from a perspective of physical difference or deformity to one based on behavior and intentions.

In addition, befriending the monster serves as a coping mechanism for children to not be afraid of the "other" or the unknown. By witnessing Theodore's displays of tolerance and acceptance towards the Frankenstein monster, children are in effect visually learning how to accept those around them who may also be different from themselves.
Nurture The Frankenstein monster in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein; or the Modern Prometheus and in Alvin and the Chipmunks Meet Frankenstein experience and learn many new things when they are first created. The philosophical debate between Nature versus Nurture suggests that there are two distinct ways an individual learns either from nature or from someone else. In Shelley's novel the monster receives both forms of learning: Frankie, in this movie, is left to his own devices and surrounding environment when Dr.
Frankenstein sends him after the three chipmunks. He ends up tracking Alvin, Theodore, and Simon in the night, without knowing how to speak or act. Frankenstein does not fulfill a parenting role, but instead abandons the monster immediately following his creation. In addition, no one instructed Frankie about a roller coaster and the scene becomes comical when he gets scared on the ride.
The chipmunks become the nurturers for the Frankenstein monster. Theodore shelters Frankie in his bedroom to protect him from the rain. Then, the chipmunks nurture Frankie by teaching him right from wrong and how to behave appropriately with other children at the park.
Similarly, when the boys take Frankie back home they take care of his cut finger and burned hands. Shelley's novel spends much more time focusing on education from a book, rather than interpersonal skills. Common Sense Media suggests, for parental guidance, that viewing age be 5 years old and above with "some scary content for the very young". Amazon customers gave an average star rating of 3.
Significance of Adaptation The Chipmunks are meant to be watched by children and families. By creating a chipmunk movie that introduces the classic Frankenstein story, children receive an early base understanding of who Dr.
Frankenstein and his monster from the classical literary work by Mary Shelley. This also means that children are gaining at an early age the start of what is known as cultural literacy. Alvin and the Chipmunks Meet Frankenstein teaches kids the culturally iconic Frankenstein monster which is most commonly seen as Boris Karloff's portrayal of a big, green monster with a square head adorned with black hair, bolts in the neck, tattered clothes, and big black shoes in Frankenstein
