Maurizio Distefano Licensing, which manages licensing in Italy for the hit children’s animated series ALVINNN!!! And the Chipmunks , produced by Bagdasarian Productions in collaboration with Mikros Animation IP (previously Technicolor Animation Productions), and distributed by PGS Entertainment (excluding U.S. and France), is already one of the most watched programmes on K2.
ALVINNN!!! And the Chipmunks is already one of the most watched programmes on K2, with more than 12 episodes shown a day to meet demand. In fact, Alvin and friends are among the top characters on the Warner Bros Discovery Kids channel. This has inspired a decision to devote the entire month of November to the series, with dedicated programming on K2 to herald the launch of the new shows.
Beginning on Tuesday 7 November through Friday in the 8pm slot, and continuing every week, 12 new episodes of season 5 will thrill young fans with new adventures for Alvin and his singing friends.
In addition, alongside the series programming, every Monday Grande Cinema K2 (K2 Great Cinema) will air fan-favourite Alvin movies, from 6 November in the prime time 7.50pm slot.
Presented in CGI animation, ALVINN!!! And the Chipmunks, created by Janice Karman, chronicles the trials and tribulations of a single parent, David Seville, as he attempts to raise six hyperactive chipmunks. Like most parents, Dave’s patience is often pushed to the limit, forcing him to end his sentences with the iconic cry “ALVINNN!!!”.
One of the most popular animated television series in the Italian market, ALVINNN!!! And the Chipmunks is also a major presence on social media, with dedicated Italian-language pages on Facebook and Instagram with more than 11,700 total Italian fans, offering lots of entertaining content and videos to keep fans up to date with all the news. Alvin episodes also air daily on Nick Jr.
It’s also a hit licensed property. As Maurizio Distefano says: “The series takes viewers and fans on a roller coaster ride of music, laughter and stories, entertaining four generations of fans. The property remains very much in demand from consumers and viewers alike.”
