Needless to say, Alvin and the Chipmunks is one of the greatest, most popular franchises of all time. Since it's debut in 1958, they've been not only a huge hit on the cartoon front with movies and cartoon shows, but their music has also stood the test of time. We all look forward to Alvin, Simon, Theodore, and their seasonal shenanigans. It just wouldn't be Christmas without hearing htem. We all had the albums as kids and each Christmas probably got enough time listening to their music to last us the rest of our short lives. Thanks Mom.
BUT HOLD UP. Have we been so blindly passionate about these harmonizing rodents that we overlooked a major flaw in their story?! And no it isn't that chipmunks only live 3 years. We've all thought about that. Maybe each year they replace them who knows, but this conspiracy goes a bit deeper than we've ever imagined we'd go with our fictional cartoon chipmunks.
It seems impossible, but Twitter user Noah Garfinkel has made us question everything:
HOW COULD WE HAVE MISSED THIS?! It just doesn't make sense. It's so dang obvious too. Does this mean he's actually...something else?

We must correct this egregious error! It's just not fair to the others. We demand justice. It seems like Alvin just gets all the credit and the rest of the munks are just along for the ride. Gotta give them some time to shine.
not sure why Alvin's name is first most of the other Chipmunks do all the work how did Alvin start getting all the credit. Let's mobilize, 'munks— Adam Rotstein (@madamepotstein) November 10, 2017

WHAT ABOUT SIMON AND THEODORE? THIS ISN'T DESTINY'S CHILD AND HE ISN'T BEYONCÉ!— Harley Baker (@FaboooLouLou) November 10, 2017
And it won't stop with Alvin. Everything will be different now. Everything will change:

Is the series ruined forever now? What do you think of the shocking revelation?
