Janice Felice Karman (born May 21, 1954) is an American film producer, record producer, singer, and voice artist. She is the co-owner of Bagdasarian Productions with her husband Ross Bagdasarian, Jr. The focus of the company is on creating albums, cartoons, and other products based on the Alvin and the Chipmunks characters, who were created by Bagdasarian's father Ross Bagdasarian, Sr. Besides helping to produce the records and cartoons, Karman provides the voice of Theodore and the members of the female spin-off group The Chipettes: Brittany, Jeanette, and Eleanor (Dody Goodman also did the voice of Miss Beatrice Miller as well). In Little Alvin and the Mini-Munks, Janice also got to play the role of Lalu. Although she originally voiced Theodore in the live-action/computer-animated film adaptation, for promotional reasons Theodore was re-recorded by the singer and actor Jesse McCartney. However, Karman does provide Theodore's singing voice in the film. Karman played the role of Bunny in the 1975 film Switchblade Sisters (alternate title: The Jezebels). Karman and her husband have two children, a daughter Vanessa and a son Michael.
