The Merry Munks Chipmunks
The Merry Munks Chipmunks are based on real chipmunks which are found along the west coast of the United States and Canada. Specifically, “Townsend’s Chipmunk,” or Tamias townsendii. The characters have stripes and markings which attempt to resemble actual chipmunk patterns.
