InfoSpace Inks Chipmunks, Moose & Squirrel, More for Mobile

Alvin_head.JPGInfoSpace is licensing characters for its mobile platform like crazy.

The company announced two deals today. The first, with Classic Media and Bagdasarian Productions, transforms characters such as Alvin and the Chipmunks, Rocky & Bullwinkle, Underdog, Lassie, Dick Tracy, Richie Rich, Mr. Magoo, Casper the Friendly Ghost, Felix the Cat, and Peter Cottontail into ringtones, wallpaper, and ringback tones.

In another deal, InfoSpace brings Tony Hawk’s Mobile Dissent to the Web today as “the first and only mobile portal to the action sports lifestyle personified by the undisputed ruler of the action sports community, Tony Hawk.”

The site extends the Hawk franchise into voice tones and name ringers recorded by Hawk; graphics, ringtones and “Sound FX.”

Now you can carry with you always the sounds of crashes, wrecks and skateboarding.

Or chipmunks.
