Ross Bagdasarian, Jr. (May 6, 1949) is an American film producer, record producer, singer, and voice artist and the son of the Alvin and the Chipmunks creator Ross Bagdasarian, Sr. He is also the co-creator of The Chipettes.
As a child, Bagdasarian, Jr. worked with his father on The Alvin Show by helping edit and coordinate the soundtracks and falsetto voice-overs of The Chipmunks. Nearly forty years later in "A Chat With Alvin," a track from the Greatest Hits: Still Squeaky After All These Years album, Ross Jr. says he didn't have to watch his dad write the music and the show, and his dad didn't have to go to his Little League games.
Bagdasarian, Jr. licensed the rights to the Chipmunk characters to Universal Pictures in 1996, resulting in the direct-to-video films Alvin and the Chipmunks Meet Frankenstein and Alvin and the Chipmunks Meet the Wolfman. Four years later, he and Janice Karman sued them for breach of contract, claiming that Universal failed to properly utilize, market, and merchandise the characters and hence resulting in a loss of royalties to Bagdasarian, Jr. The case was decided in Bagdasarian, Jr.'s favor.
