Alvin and the Chipmunks Wiki

Tables Turned is an episode of the ALVINNN!!! and The Chipmunks series.


When Alvin pranks Simon with a trick website making it look like Alvin is smarter, The Chipettes prank Alvin back.[2]


As Theodore reads a book, Alvin plays a video game before Brittany calls about an emergency. The two burst into The Chipettes' Treehouse to learn the Internet's out and she needs Simon to fix it. Alvin volunteers to look at the problem causing the others to laugh; Simon arrives allowing Alvin to try to fix the Internet, ultimately doing it himself. Brittany thanks him and Alvin challenges him to an online IQ test. Simon thinks the idea's ridiculous but takes the test anyways, though is completely shocked to learn Alvin's smarter than him. After The Chipettes show how poorly Simon has been taking the news (finding him lying in the grass wide-eyed), Alvin admits to Theo that the test was a trick website in which the scores were switched. Despite making a pinky promise, the younger brother doesn't wanna keep the secret and is easily tempted into telling with a chocolate bar by the girls. In order to get back at Alvin, The Chipettes convince Alvin that Simon is better at a game than him. Not believing it, Alvin duels Simon only to lose. While Simon attempts to comfort Alvin, Brittany reveals Alvin was really playing against Thumbs McGee, an expert at the game, hiding in the closet. As the days progress, so does Simon and Alvin’s depression until Brittany can't take it anymore, spilling the truth. At the insistence of Jeanette, Alvin finally reveals the true nature of the IQ website. Brittany explains that Simon is more than his smarts and Alvin is more than a video game player. Meanwhile Alvin annoys the group, by giving too much information about how he looks.
