Alvin and the Chipmunks Wiki

Pack Animal is an episode of the ALVINNN!!! and The Chipmunks series.


When Dave tells Simon to get rid of some stuff, a few of his most dangerous inventions end up in the wrong hands. [citation needed]


Dave opens the living room closet and ends up on the floor as a mound of boxes fall on him. He instantly believes Alvin is to blame, ordering him to clean it up, until Simon admits he's at fault. While Alvin waits for an apology from Dave, Simon explains the mess is spare parts from past inventions with no where else to go. When Dave is once again knocked down by more of Simon's inventions in the basement, Simon agrees to get rid of everything. Alvin learns Simon wasn't punished and can even keep the important pieces so he confronts Dave about the double standard in the Seville House when it comes to punishments. Simon spends most of the evening sorting through the pieces, ultimately separating out his dangerous inventions. Exhausted, Simon falls asleep waking to Theodore holding breakfast and learning he took the wrong box to the buy and sell shop. The pair rush to the shop learning all of the stuff sold already. With the assistance of The Chipettes, Simon and Theo follow the mayhem around town to collect the various inventions Simon intended to keep out of others' hands. Meanwhile Alvin lectures Dave about how to be a fair father, desperate for a proper apology. Hearing Simon outside, he checks on him learning Simon's most dangerous device, capable of creating a black hole, is missing. Theodore points out the black hole forming over the Humphrey's residence and find Neville playing with the device, sucking up things until they too are sucked in. With a little team work, they are able to escape. Dave finds Alvin in the basement later to apologize until he's buried with stuff Alvin brought back.
