Directed by: Betty Thomas
Synopsis: Alvin and the Chipmunks return in this sequel in which they attend a new school and compete with their female counterparts, The Chipettes.
Kitty Cameo: David Seville (Jason Lee) is dispatched pretty quickly in this film and is replaced with Dave’s younger cousin Toby (Zachary Levi). Toby is preparing to drive the Chipmunks to their first day of school and they approach his car. He suddenly spots an orange tabby cat sitting by some bushes. Toby exclaims that it’s his cat and calls out, “Hey Kitty! Remember me?”
The cat reacts violently, hissing at Toby.
Toby insists, “I treated you good,” and gets into the car. The cat screeches again and swipes in Toby’s direction. Apparently the trainers used a puppet to get this reaction from the cat actor.
Final Mewsings: Even cats don’t like David Seville knock-offs.
