We're The Chipmunks is an episode of the ALVINNN!!! and The Chipmunks series.


The Chipmunks must compete in a battle of the bands when a new boy band emerges and attempts to steal the spotlight.[1]


Dave and The Chipmunks enter an empty concert hall, excited for opening night, before the stage manager sympathetically informs them their show was canceled and replaced by a new band called The Hip Munks. Alvin refuses to believe that they would be replaced, determined they are part of a celebrity prank show. After a brief stop at the Seville House, Dave and the boys go back to the theater to confront the owners. They claim they just signed The Hip Munks to their label and as the Sevilles begin to leave upset, the owners propose a Battle of the Bands, which everyone agrees to. The Chipettes later discover a video of the new group predicting The Chipmunks' demise. The chipmunks then hear cheering outside and find a crowd of fans of The Chipposters (Alvin's word-play) so they follow them. Unable to get into the met-and-greet, they tail their car back to the theater. The boys find The Hip Munks in an office hanging on a wall and try to rescue them, under the thought that they may be being held against their will, only to learn they are actually robots. Unable to take them without arousing suspicion, the boys leave them and wait for their battle. During the performance, with the help of the girls, The Hip Munks overload and explode. The Chipmunks continue the song outside as the executives confront Officer Dangus prior to speeding off in their car.




  • The clip of The Chipmunks doing a sideways flip on stage is included in the second series opening theme, first seen at the start of season three.
  • The title is based upon the theme song.
  • When this episode premiered in the US, it aired with a rerun of Keeping Up With The Humphries.
