A vision in pink. That’s what Brittany is, and like her pop star namesake (okay, so she actually predates Spears, but the analogy is still pretty solid), she has to have it all and darn the consequences!
Alvin’s counterpart and love interest, Brittany is the oldest of the group, and frequently gets into arguments and contests of skill with the fuzzy, red-hoodie-wearing ‘Munk. Alvin is a sucker for her and her bets, so there is never any way he can refuse. Brittany can be sweet to those she likes, but she can also be self-serving, vain, not to mention condescending to those she doesn’t like. She’s also fond of showing off and putting strangers in their place. In short, Brittany has the posh lifestyle, superstar mannerisms down to an art. But all that obnoxiousness would be moot if it weren’t for her talent. She and the Chipettes are every bit as talented as the lads, and boy, will Brittany never let you forget it.
Like her movie counterpart, Ty’s Beanie Baby Brittany features the same furry body as the boys, but in contrast, she features actual hair done up in a ponytail on top of her head. Bright blue eyes gaze out of a lovely face, and she’s got a chic yet careless look to her with that pink shirt, black and pink checked tie and the darker pink skirt. The Chipettes came along in the ’80s as a way to broaden the cartoon’s appeal to young girls, and this modern take on the sassy lady seeks to do the same with the daughters of those girls who watched it so long ago.
