Nickelodeon To Premiere "Alvinnn!!! and the Chipmunks" In Northern Europe On Monday 15th June 2015

Nickelodeon channels across Northern Europe have announced the exciting Nickelodeon International news on their official websites that they will start to premiere and show the brand-new CG-animated preschool series "Alvinnn!!! and the Chipmunks" on Monday 15th June 2015!

Nickelodeon Sweden (Sverige) will debut "Alvin!!! och gänget" at 15:00, Nickelodeon Denmark (Danmark) will premiere "Alvin og de frække jordegern" at 15:30, Nickelodeon Norway will debut "Alvinnn!!! og gjengen" at 16:20, and Nickelodeon Poland (Polska) will premiere "ALVINNN!!! i Wiewiórki" at 17:15!

The new animated series, "ALVINNN!!! and The Chipmunks", created by Janice Karman, will take pre-schoolers on a roller-coaster ride of music, laughter and stories geared to entertain four generations of "The Chipmunks" fans. Presented for the first time in glorious CGI, the series features ground-breaking animation and a new, original Chipmunk song in every episode. The series is an animated version of a prime-time sitcom and reflects the trials and tribulations of a single parent, David Seville, trying to raise six hyper-active Chipmunks. Like most parents, Dave's patience will be pushed to the limit, forcing him to end most sentences in "ALVINNN!!!"

"ALVINNN!!! and The Chipmunks" is created, written, produced, voiced and directed by Janice Karman. She and her husband, Ross Bagdasarian, are the owners of the popular Chipmunks franchise and producers of the previous 1980's hit TV series and three blockbuster Chipmunks movies. The new "ALVINNN!!!" reboot series marks the return of the franchise to TV after 20 years and is produced in collaboration with OuiDO! Productions and was commissioned by M6.

Nickelodeon acquired the broadcast rights to the first two seasons (104 x 11 minute episodes) of "ALVINNN!!! and The Chipmunks" in February 2014 and is currently rolling the show out on more than 70 of their international channels (excluding Nickelodeon USA and Nick Brazil).
