David "Dave" Seville is one of the main protagonists of the movies. He is the Chipmunks' and the Chipettes' adoptive father, confidant, and caretaker. Dave is usually annoyed by the Chipmunks (mainly Alvin). Like any other single parent trying to raise 3 kids(6 as of the end of the Squeakquel), Dave has his patience tested on a daily basis. Dave has short black hair and usually wears a white suit with a black tie, long black pants, and black shoes. Dave is actually based on the creator of "Alvin and the Chipmunks", and the real creator of the entire series (Ross Bagdasarian) actually had a stage name, "David Seville".
While Dave struggles to remain calm and objective, Alvin often pushes him over the edge, resulting in Dave's popular yell, "ALLLLVIIIIIIIIIINNNN!!!", to which Alvin often replies, "OKAY!!".
Dave's rival and friend was Ian Hawke. Dave's adoptive sons are Alvin, Simon, and Theodore. Dave's adoptive daughters are Brittany Miller, Jeanette Miller, and Eleanor Miller. Dave's cousin is Toby Seville and James Seville. Dave's love interest and mate was Claire Wilson.
Dave plays the piano and the guitar.
Dave's catchphrase is "ALLLLVIIIIIIIIIINNNN!!!". He is portrayed by Jason Lee. However, in the upcoming sitcom, he will be played by Matt LeBlanc.
