Alvin and the Chipmunks, "The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don't Be Late)"
explained by Mahalo
Oh, it brings back such memories, doesn't it? Of black-and-white tv, then having full color but only a blurry third- or fourth-generation YouTube video to look at. What happened to all the old Chipmunk video? Why are left with all the newer terrible stuff? Well, the song is the important thing. We all still want that hoola hoop.
If you want to ruin your own Christmas spirit here's a bitter little assessment of Ross Bagdasarian from Splitsider.com. (Bagdasarian hung out with William Saroyan; Saroyan said nicer things about him.)
