Experiment in Error is an episode of the Alvin and the Chipmunks series.


Alvin refuses to take Brittany to the Black and White Ball, the biggest social event of the season, shattering her new-found acting dreams. She attempts to convince Theodore and Simon with no luck either. Simon leaves Brittany to watch one of his experiments only to be blown up when Alvin turns on the lights. As a result, she decides to pretend she is a zombie so Alvin will take her to the ball. Once at the ball, Alvin overhears Brittany saying that she fooled him, so he gets his own back by informing her that Pierre Dulon is looking for a zombie for his next film. She later discovers he was looking for someone to play sleeping beauty. After discovering she has been duped, she angrilly chases Alvin all around the room.
