Dr. Zap vs Electroboy is an episode of the ALVINNN!!! and The Chipmunks series.


Theodore is hit by lightning and believes he's like his comic book hero, until he's told he's actually a villain.[2]


Theodore is reading Alvin's comics, so Alvin can play his video game. Theodore is doing the dishes when he sees Ms. Whiskers in the rain. Then he gets struck by lightning. The next morning, Theodore thinks he has the same origin story as Electroboy (the comic book hero). That night, Alvin goes to eat a last slice of cake (which was Daves), but Theodore stopped him in his new costume. His brothers took him up to his room, and told him Electroboy's real origin story. The lightning strike was actually Dr. Zap's (the comic book villain) origin story. Theodore dreams of him being bad, and then he wakes up. He does bad things during school, and the next morning. Alvin and Simon tell Miss Smith all about everything. Then Theodore is stalking Derek all the time around school. Then Miss Smith is seeing Theodore's evil plan. Next, it was raining. Then Theodore is called to the principal's office where he meets Electrogirl (who is actually Miss Smith). Then she makes Theodore good again.
