Daytona Jones and the Pearl of Wisdom is an episode of The Chipmunks Go to the Movies series.
After narrowly escaping a temple with the lost second half of The Tasmanian Oyster map leading to the Pearl of Wisdom, Daytona Jones is confronted by the nefarious Roland Bellyache who steals the shell fragment and sends him down a river and over a waterfall tied to a tree. Daytona then goes to a museum to find his brother, Saratoga, who is reluctantly convinced to help him recover the second fragment in Hong Kong. Once there, they meet a local tourist guide who agrees to take them to find Bellyache at the harbor where they also meet his girlfriend Bambi. The three of them sneak onto his boat and search through his artifact collection only to fall through a trap door and are captured by Bellyache and his ninjas. Later, Bambi frees the Jones brothers and their guide so they can all go after Bellyache in a submarine to a sunken island and find the pearl. All of them race to the altar and must decide which of the three pearls is the Pearl of Wisdom. The first two pearls are chosen by one of the ninjas, then Bellyache, prove incorrect, leading them to fall into a giant chasm. The Jones brothers, guide, and Bambi are left with The Pearl of Wisdom, able to answer any question in the universe. Saratoga realizes that the pearl would be dangerous in the wrong hands and drops it down into the chasm, never to be seen again.
