The Prize Isn't Right is an episode of the Alvin and the Chipmunks series.


Midway into playing Pile of Trivia, a trivia game show, Simon catches the flu. Desperate for the money that Simon would win to buy a tour bus, Alvin dresses Theodore up as Simon to take his place. Alvin's plan to transmit the answers is ruined by transmitting interference. Luckily Theo is asked a question about food and receives a consolation price: a baby hippo. After the hippo runs away during the night, Alvin and Theodore frantically search every place there is food. They find the hippo in a kid's swimming pool and trade it in for the bonus round. Alvin takes Simon's place on the show and Alvin is a shoo-in since the category is Show Biz. Dave later sees Alvin on the show as Simon and heads over to the studio with a reluctant Simon. They arrive on stage just in time for Alvin to answer the last question incorrectly and land in a pot of cheese dip.
