During this shows eight seasons on NBC's Saturday morning schedule, this show popped around production houses and changed its name liberally. After the Ruby-Spears had the series for four years, it popped over to Fred Wolf Films, and the name was shortened to the simple The Chipmunks for 1988. It kept the name The_Chipmunks when DiC took the series over the following year. The last year, DiC changed the series name to The Chipmunks Go To the Movies. The latter version made pop culture parody the entire focus of the show, with Chipmunks and Chippettes performing such entertaining spoofs as "Batmunk."
