Have to be honest here, this DVD is no way near as good as Alvin and the Chipmunks Meet the Wolfman was. I'm not saying it's bad, we really did enjoy it, but it's not "amazing!".
The Chipmunks are performing at a theme park called Majestic Movie Studios (a spoof of Universal Studios Hollywood). While taking a break from their concert, the Chipmunks get lost, and eventually get locked inside the park. They find their way to the "Frankenstein's Castle" attraction, where a real Dr. Victor Frankenstein is working on his monster. The monster is brought to life, and the doctor sends it in pursuit of the Chipmunks. In their escape, the monster retrieves Theodore's dropped teddy bear.
The monster follows the Chipmunks home and returns the bear to Theodore, who quickly befriends him. The Chipmunks learn that the monster (whom Theodore has nicknamed "Frankie") is truly good-hearted. Dave goes to the park to book a concert that night to celebrate the premiere of an anticipated film. Dr. Frankenstein tracks Frankie to the Chipmunks' home, and, angered at the monster's benevolence, kidnaps Alvin. Simon, Theodore, and Frankie hurry back to the park to rescue Alvin.
Dr. Frankenstein force feeds Alvin a potion and induces a powerful electrical shock. Alvin is released by Frankie, and after Simon swipes the doctor's potions book, the four of them escape back into the park. Shortly after, the process Alvin underwent takes effect, transforming Alvin into a zany cartoon monster. Alvin escapes to the premiere, causing chaos and havoc in his path. Using the potions book, Simon and Theodore mix an antidote using various food items from a buffet, and feed it to Alvin during his rampage. Alvin returns to normal, and the Chipmunks go to perform their concert.
Before the concert begins, Dr. Frankenstein attempts to transform Alvin back to his monster self, but is thwarted by Frankie. Theodore introduces Frankie to the public, promising that Frankie will bring no harm if treated kindly. Meanwhile, Dr. Frankenstein is revealed to have been given the job of being the studio's mascot, Sammy Squirrel, much to his dissatisfaction, as he is trying to get the mascot's head off in a last ditch effort to kidnap Alvin.

If like me you're too old to be watching these cartoons but too young to care then Alvin & the Chipmunks Meet Frankenstein provides temporary relief from cravings of Saturday mornings, pajamas and high sugar content cereal.
You'll equally enjoy this feature length morsel of Alvin & co. if you love monster movies, catchy high pitched songs & if you have enjoyed their previous material, especially over the CGI efforts. I feel that any kid that sees this is in for great memories of it. Oh and don't forget to buy multiple copies for your bomb shelter!

This was advertised as new. I bought it as a present. When it arrived the box was broken on the inside and had a horrible smell to it, definitely not new, and in very poor condition. Was unable to give as a gift. DVD has not been watched so do not know what the condition of that is but dont hold out much hope considering the quality of the packaging. Very disappointing. Delivery ok.

When I was younger I always loved Alvin and the Chipmunks, now I'm a lot older I didn't think I'd enjoy this video but, Alvin is back and still as funny as ever! The storyline is quite good and there are three classic chipmunk songs. If you need cheering up watch this video as it is unlike any other cartoon.
