Alvin is a singing chipmunk from the band Alvin and the Chipmunks. Alvin is the leader of the band and often gets them into trouble or sticky situations. Fortunately (or unfortunately) Alvin always has some sort of plan to get them out of trouble (though it is usually one of his plans that got them into trouble in the first place.) Alvin's plans tend to be a little strange or dangerous but he calls them "challenging the ordinary." Alvin's signature color is red and he plays the guitar and the harmonica.
