Alvin and the Chipmunks Wiki

Bigger! is an episode of The Chipmunks Go to the Movies series.


Frustrated with being treated like a child, Alvin of the Fur Balls wishes to a jukebox that he were bigger and turns into an adult. Happy that his wish has come true, he borrows money and clothes from a confused Dave who no longer recognizes him and goes with Simon and Theodore to a concert by the Babes. Two guys start asking him for music advice and he is quickly given a job for his youthful point of view. Alvin enjoys his new life at first, giving advice while playing with toys and eating with Simon and Theodore. The burdens of being a grown-up begin to take hold when he realizes he can no longer go play little league and is flooded with phone calls. He promises to make his brothers famous, but turns them down stating they need to come back when they're grown up. Alvin is given the task of directing a new music video for the Babes but his idea to dress them up as babies turns out to be a disaster and Alvin is fired, resulting in him getting a stomachache. After he sees a picture of himself on a milk carton, he realizes he has forgotten about Dave. He calls him but Dave doesn't recognize his voice. Alvin begins to cry and rushes back to the fair to catch the jukebox as it's being driven away. He throws his quarter and his wish to be a kid again comes true. He then runs home to Dave who gladly welcomes him, and meets Simon and Theodore who reluctantly accept him back.
