Alvin and the Chipmunks Wiki

Alvin, Alvin, Alvin! is an episode of the Alvin and the Chipmunks series.

Plot[]

After Alvin loses the election for class president, his girlfriend, Kelly, and the cover of Hot Rockers magazine on the same day, he becomes depressed. Dave and his brothers try to cheer him up with a cake, some books, and Bruce Springsteen tickets (ironically, Dave realizes that Alvin lost to Springsteen in making the cover of Hot Rockers). Later, it seemed to have worked as they see the cake was eaten, the ticket was redeemed, and a book was read, until Simon realizes it was one of the books he rejected: Being The Other Guy Is Always Better. This inspires Alvin to resolve his identity crisis with a new personality. His first choice is "The Boss" - a tough biker-like figure who jackhammers the driveway, but when Dave and the boys go out to eat at a rough diner, Alvin cannot handle such a lifestyle. The next day, Simon complains his life savings have been emptied, and Theodore and Dave wonders why Alvin now calls himself "Michael" and emulates Michael Jackson, who spent the stolen money on a llama. Despite "Michael's" explanation that the llama is a peaceful animal, it eats the couch. Alvin decides he needs a new personality, to which Dave protests there has been "a new you every day of the week". A montage is shown of Alvin being a monk, martial artist, cowboy, and Elvis. His final choice is as "Rockefeller Seville", a corporate banker who runs the household budget and acts more responsible, having furnished a nice office from furniture he bought from selling the llama back, but life around the Seville residence has become drab from Alvin's attempts to cut costs everywhere. When the lights and TV are shut off, Dave puts his foot down and says "it is time to fight fire with fire". The next morning, "Rockefeller Seville" sees Dave, Theodore, and Simon all impersonating the old Alvin. Realizing his mistake in being a copycat of other successful people, Alvin says the best personality is the one he knew all along.
