Kids say (2):

This is classic Chipmunk fare -- a 1990s animated adventure that still looks like it's from the '80s, with singing and positive lessons about sticking together, cleaning up messes, and acceptance. Here, viewers get a decent Halloween-themed twist that pokes fun at Hollywood and gives the old Frankenstein story a twist, yet still reinforces that things are not always what they seem and sometimes very nice people come in very strange packages. Kids will enjoy the cartoon creepiness, which isn't too scary, and the sing-alongs, which are the main attraction in Chipmunk land. There are plenty of scary faces and frights, though, so this is better for grade schoo-age kids and older.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
