This Can't Be Right

The Onion A.V. Club, in its battle of the cartoon bands, says that Alvin and the Chipmunks lose to the Nutty Squirrels. Who are the Nutty Squirrels, and how is there any possibility that they're one-tenth as cool as Alvin and the Chipmunks? Has the Onion ever heard the song where the Chipmunks visit Japan and look for bananas? Shouldn't I be listening to that song right now? I realize this is a public library, but still.

The banana splits theme song is the rockingest theme song ever. I don't think that the fact that they technically were not a cartoon but instead introduced cartoons makes them any less rocking.
