Alvin and the Chipmunks Wiki

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


When the boys accidentally break Dave's new flat screen TV they decide to become fugitives on the lam.[2]


The Chipmunks are running through the woods as Simon is videotaping them. When they periodically stop to rest, Alvin informs the camera that the brothers are fugitives and decides it'll be easier to show why instead of explaining. Simon rewinds the tape until Alvin is talking about a game called "Thumperball," which involves hitting a small ball with a tennis racket. Dave angrily catches them playing it in the house just before the doorbell rings; Dave bought himself a present, a Megascreen 99" 8K TV. After the new TV is set up, Alvin hits the ball with the racket again causing it to bonce off the wall hitting the television. The impact leaves a small crack in the corner, and as they debate their options, the crack grows before completely shattering the screen. Alvin begins packing a bag though Simon believes he's overreacting as Theodore cries, upset about losing everything. The boys explain the situation to The Chipettes in their treehouse as Theodore raids their fridge and loots their draws. The girls are shocked because Dave loves that TV and frantically help them pack. Back to the present, Simon's phone rings, a call from Dave, only for Theodore to destroy it. They make camp and Alvin tries forcing his younger brother to eat blackened pine needles considering he already ate all their food rations. Simon tries to comfort Theodore, who misses Dave, when he realizes the camera has a bunch of Dave so they watch clips until they are all crying. Suddenly they believe they hear a bear and start running, but they all end up captured by Dave. After Dave explains that the boys mean more than anything else to him, Alvin confesses he washed a bucket of rocks in the washing machine.
