Probably the most famous fictional chipmunks are Alvin and the Chipmunks and Disney's Chip 'n Dale.

The chipmunk is a relative of the squirrel. There are flying squirrels and I wonder if the founders of the flight search engine, Hipmunk, were thinking of the latter when they named their company.
If you live in a woodland setting and would like to provide feed for squirrels, check out the chipmunk feeder crafted by HappyValleyWood on Etsy. (By the way, there are 1,985 items labeled chipmunk on Etsy.)
