Funny: Alvin and the Chipmunks

For The Alvin Show:

For Alvin and the Chipmunks/The Chipmunks:

  • One episode has Alvin suing Brittany on a parody of The Peoples Court. The best gag is how Alvin proved Brittany was faking her injuries.
    Alvin: Hey look, it's Don Johnson!
    (Brittany leaps out of her wheelchair & excitedly hops up & down)
    Brittany: Where? Where?
    Alvin: A-ha! See your honor, she was faking! note 
  • Earlier in the episode, as Alvin suddenly limps towards the courthouse.
    Simon: What's with the limp?
    Alvin: Just a liiiiittle insurance.
    Simon: What happened to "truth, justice, and the American way"?
    Alvin: This is the American way.
  • In one episode where Alvin was learning to ski, but ignoring Simon's instructions, he ends up tumbling down and creating a giant snowball, which is heading toward Simon and Theodore:
    (Theodore runs around in a panic)
    Simon: (just stands there) Why can't he just listen for once?
  • The Running Gag with T-shirts the episode where Alvin and Simon help Theodore on his history test. The first is when Columbus (Alvin) arrived. Later the pilgrims came and offered T-shirts to the two indians already wearing the shirts Columbus gave them.
    "More T-shirts?"
    • Then in Custard's Last Stand.
    Alvin as Custard: How about some T-shirts, chief?
    Simon as Sitting Bull: No more stupid T-shirts!
    Alvin as Custard: Okay. Then how about some party favors? Whoopie Cushions?
    Simon as Sitting Bull: Let's charge him!
    Alvin as Custard: No problem. I take credit cards.
    Simon as Sitting Bull: No! We charge you!
  • From the episode "Snow Wrong":
    Brittany: Nobody, but nobody calls my sister a jerk!!!
    Jeanette: Uh... but, you do all the time...
    Brittany: That's different!
  • From "Thinking Cap Trap":
    Host: Alvin, what is syntax?
    Alvin: Syntax...A tax the church collects from sinners?
  • From "The Gang's All Here," Jeanette falls down while roller skating, bringing Brittany down with her.
    Jeanette: Sorry, Brittany. I tell my feet where to go, but they just don't listen to me.
    Brittany: (Grabs Jeanette's foot) GET OFF THE RINK!!!
    Jeanette: But... maybe they'll listen to you instead.
  • In "My Fair Chipette," a bet arose between Alvin and Brittany that Alvin could turn Jeanette into beauty queen material; when he succeeds, Brittany calls off the bet, desperate to win the beauty pageant, but the funny part is when you really stop and think about the following exchange between the two, It Makes Sense in Context.
    Brittany: Please take the money, Alvin! I'm a desperate woman!
    Alvin: Brittany, let go of my leg!
