The third intro to "Alvin and the Chipmunks," how just referred to as "The Chipmunks" in the opening titles. The lyrics themselves remain completely unchanged from the original intro, but the animation is totally new. One strange aspect is the absence of the Chipettes: Brittany, Jeanette and Eleanor, who had at least a brief cameo in the original opening.
Alvin and the Chipmunks would go on for eight seasons, an impressive run for a non-primetime eighties cartoon series.
The use of this introduction theme clip/subject is claimed under 'Fair Use' on the grounds of:
1) the clip/subject is used for - and accompanied with - comments on the show. Comments include such things as the producers of the show (as in the production company/s), the year it first aired and how long the series lasted in 'standard length' episodes. Also noted is the availability of subject on high quality, officially licensed media (e.g. DVD).
2a) Inferior quality of video in relation to the quality of the original source. Being at a much lower screen resolution at a high level of compression. In addition to the substantial generation loss caused as a result of the methods used, the process also causes compression artifacts in the form of: loss of image clarity, noise, pixelization, et al.
2b) The inferior nature coupled with the incomplete nature of this recording and the diminished potential value therein of this recording in relation to the original work.
3) The trivial nature of the potential value of subject's introductory theme (hereon referred to as 'intro'), less the actual show that would otherwise follow. On the basis that it is the show - rather than the show's intro - which is, in essence, the primary draw of any 'realistic' potential audience and therefore the main fiscal worth of the subject (relating to audience/market share and sales of merchandising, i.e. DVD and video).
4) Bar the occasional glimpse at an episode's title car, the clip is of the intro and nothing else. The length of the clip is determined by that of subject's intro original length, no more is taken.
5) The poster and host both receive no revenue from this clip's existence on this site.
