Alvin & the Chipmunks first appeared in 1958, quite possibly the first American boy band to hit the big time. At first they were a novelty act, covering the odd songs for children's recordings, but soon grew into more of a business. They had their own cartoon series, and toured in a live version of the show, utilizing puppets. They were lead by Dave Seville, their adoptive father, chief songwriter, and defacto manager for the 'boys.' I remember watching them with glee whenever I could. Their Christmas song, Christmas Don't Be Late, certainly brings back plenty of memories.
And while this might not bring back memories so much as other thoughts, here is Reece Rideout singing All I Want For Christmas.
