Alvin and the Chipmunks Wiki

Oh Brother Where Art Thou is an episode of the ALVINNN!!! and The Chipmunks series.


When Simon goes missing and nobody seems to remember who he is, Alvin worries that he is losing his mind.[2]


Simon is working on his science fair project when Alvin urges Simon to go to the water park "Thunder Waves," claiming it's related to his science project. Simon states they can't go anyways because the room is a mess; Alvin, wanting to go, tries to sneak out via the tree, but hurriedly climbs back into their room when Simon, who is fixing the toaster, sees him. Later that night, Dave comes down upset about something, and he tries to talk to Alvin about leaving his golf club outside, but Alvin, too hasty, calls Simon a snitch, thinking Simon told Dave about him sneaking to the water park. Alvin then tells Simon to never speak to him again, and hopes he can forget Simon exists, hurting Simon’s feelings. The next day Alvin gets his wish when he finds Theodore playing with Simon's robot before denying the existence of Simon and explaining that he and Alvin flunked out of school. Alvin, determined to solve the mystery of Simon's disappearance, discovers that the toaster is still not fixed, cannot find Simon in his contacts list, and Simon's bed and clothes have disappeared. After thinking that the power of his mind caused Simon to disappear, Alvin runs to ask Miss Croner about Simon, who only knows about her cat named Simon, while The Chipettes think that Simon's Alvin's imaginary brother. The girls inform him that he's not in a band because he doesn't have enough voices. He begins to think that they think he's crazy and he rushes off before he could be pull in a straight jacket or given anti-crazy pills. Alvin, desperate to have Simon back now, embraces Simon when he comes back into the room, much to Simon’s confusion. Alvin then believes he willed his brother back into existence before discovering that Theodore and The Chipettes were teaching him a lesson of the importance of Simon in Alvin's life. Simon and Dave actually just went to get tickets to the water park he was dying to go to. Alvin then apologizes to Simon, feeling guilty for his hurtful words, and Simon forgives him, acknowledging that everyone says things they don’t mean.
