Stop Ruining My Childhood!

Alvin and the Chipmunks… And Peeps

April 7, 2022

Easter is just around the corner, so we revisit the classic Easter snack, Marshmallow Peeps. We talk about the history of the Peep, including the automation process that took the formation of each batch from 23 hours to 6 minutes! 

Then, we do a deep dive on Alvin and the Chipmunks, beginning with a novelty record in 1958 and ending with live-action films in the 2010s. And, of course, we talk about our memories including the stuffed animal merch from Burger King and an unusual field trip to see the Chipmunks movie.

Did we love the 1980s Saturday morning cartoon? Or, did the voices and songs annoy us?  Tune in to find out!
