"I am disappointed in the latest reissue of "Chipmunks Go To the Movies" The only new addition would be "The Pearl of Wasdom" toon. I ALREADY own BATMUNK and the other cartoon on another DVD. The art is nice on the box, but Paramount really needs to get their act together and release cartoons that younger fans haven't seen...
It is a real shame to see how Parmount has done a terrible injustice to the Chipmunks and how the shows are being released to DVD. I am about ready to stop buying the DVDs... I passed on this release.. I rented this from my library and was disappointed..."
It was okay

"This is a release that I give enough justice. The episodes are priceless. They all include humor and fun and the spoofs are funny, but i would like to see more episodes on one DVD. I found it funny how every chipette that was really the main featuring one (hence Eleanor being the mayor in Robomunk) was Brittany. I have a slight feeling they did this on purpose. Maybe not i don't know, I just found it funny. Over all this is a good release for any true old chipmunk fan. And the collection wouldn't be complete without it."

"In this 1-disc 3-episode Dvd from the eigth and final season of Alvin and the Chipmunks called The Chipmunks Go to the Movies, Alvin and the Chipmunks spoof an Indianna Jones movie (no one in particular), Batman (1989), and the original Robocop in roughly 20-minute episodes.
*In the Indy spoof, called Daytona Jones and the Pearl of Wisdom, Alvin is Daytona Jones, Simon is Daytona's brother, Seri-Toga, Theodore is someone who gets mixed up in Daytona's quest for the Pearl of Wisdom, and Brittany (the Chipette who's like Alvin) is the main antagonist, Bellyache's girlfriend. Episode Summary; Daytona Jones goes into an ancient temple, finds the last half of the Tasmanian Oyster, which is half of a map to the Pearl of Wisdom, and dodges a giant stone head (like in Indianna Jones and the Arc of the Covenant), only to have the Oyster stolen by Bellyache and his ninjas. Later, using the first half of the Oyster, Daytona and Seri-Toga journey to China, meet Theodore's character, meet Bellyache's girlfriend, then sneak onto Bellyache's ship, where they are captured. Will the Chipmunks escape and get the Oyster back? Or will Bellyache get the upper hand on Daytona once again?
*In the Batman spoof, called Batmunk, Simon is Brice Wayne/Batmunk, Theodore is Happy, the Butler, Alvin is The Jokester, and Brittany is Nicky Nale. Episode Summary; Brice Wayne, a millionaire has had several attempted robberies on his toy stores where his famous Batmunk action figures are. The villan behind these robberies is the Jokester, and with Brice's greatest toy soon to be unvailled, his superhero alter-ego, Batmunk will be working overtime. Will he be enough?
*In the Robocop spoof, called Robomunk, Alvin is officer Mallone, Brittany is Violet, his partner, Simon is Dr. Simonize, Eleanor is the mayor, and Theodore is the villan, Mr. Pinckie. Episode Summary; In the future, Mr. Pinckie dreams of creating his own ideal town by polluting the city, but Officers Mallone and Violet, the best cops out there, are standing in his way. But when Mallone suffers a "terrible" accident, the struggling, and soon-to-be-fired Dr. Simonize transforms him into a half-cyborg half-chipmunk Robomunk, who has no memories of his former life and lives only to fight crime and pollution. Soon, Mr. Pinckie invents a superior, pollution-causing robot. In the end, will Robomunk be enough? Or will Mr. Pinckie take over the city.
In my opinion, this is a fair DVD. The episodes have the same general plot as the movies they are based off, only without the bad language or violence. I'd recommend this for children 7 and up (though it is a children's show show) and their parents who have seen the actual films."
