Who's Your Daddy is an episode of the ALVINNN!!! and The Chipmunks series.


When Dave comes down with a bad cold, Alvin quickly offers to take over Dad duty. But he quickly learns that parenting is a lot harder than he ever imagined.[3]


Dave is sick and driving The Chipmunks around while struggling to remember everything they're doing. Theodore reminds Dave of his play rehearsal only for him to fall asleep when they get there. Alvin wakes him up to help Theo but he has to take a phone call after which he passes out. At home, Dave tells Alvin to call Miss Miller, but when he does, he hangs up shortly after. Alvin takes over dad-duty to the disapproval of Simon who bets he will be an unsuccessful dad. Alvin starts off by serving an unhealthy breakfast of apple pie and popcorn and arriving late to school. His dad ability doesn't improve as he burns dinner, breaks the plumbing, and wrecks the furniture. Simon disagrees with Alvin's decision of removing Theodore from the play and they agree to using a jury of six peers to evaluate how successful Alvin's really been at fatherhood. Once Alvin learns he's a terrible parent, he begs Simon for a second chance. Given an opportunity to redeem himself, Alvin is successful at cooking dinner, getting Theodore back into the play, and, with the help of Dave, cleaning the house. Alvin still loses the bet and has to take yoga classes.




  • Simon says he and his brothers wouldn't leave until Dave took them in; this is a similar attitude of The Chipmunks from the first CGI/live-action film Alvin and the Chipmunks.
  • The flower painting in the living room, seen when Simon bets Alvin he can't be a successful parent, was painted by Ross Bagdasarian, Sr. in the 1960s after which he hung on the wall in his office.[5]
