Teevee or Not Teevee is an episode of the Alvin and the Chipmunks series.


The Chipmunks are scheduled to appear on The Johnny Letterman Show due to Alvin's frequent calls to Johnny, but their act is canceled when a Russian Premier also scheduled to appear announces he will be arriving early. Johnny and his crew take off to meet him live at the airport. After the boys leave Dave and arrive at the airport, they try to sneak in through a gate so they can play their act on T.V. The Chipmunks do finally get to perform for the Premier but are imprisoned with espionage charges. Lucky for Dave and the boys the Russian Premier is a chipmunks fan club member.



  • "Talk to Me" originally performed by Stevie Nicks.


  • The title is a pun on the saying "To be, or not to be."
  • Johnny Letterman and his show are obvious parodies of David Letterman and his show; the name is an amalgam of Johnny Carson and David Letterman.
