Alvin and the Chipmunks Meet the Wolfman

With years of experience in the animation world, Kathi Castillo finally made her directorial debut in 1999 with ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS MEET FRANKENSTEIN. She followed this up with the delightful MEET THE WOLFMAN in 2000 and both are fantastic films. Of course the Chipmunks have a place in the hearts of any North American born in the '60s and these homages to the old ABBOT AND COSTELLO MEET pictures are an absolute treat. Funnny gags, above average animation and a surprisingly good story make either of these perfect family viewing. The great Frank Welker provides the werewolf sounds, accomplished vocal artists Rob Paulsen and E.G. Daily are on board and though uncredited this marks the final film for Dody Goodman who we all know as Blache from GREASE.
Take my word for it, these flciks are a lot of fun!
