Plot

In the movie, the Chipmunks are performing at a theme park called Majestic Movie Studios. After one of their shows, they go off for a break. Meanwhile, Doctor Frankenstein has come and is inhabiting a new attraction called "Frankenstein's Castle" as he makes another monster. The Chipmunks get lost, and eventually get locked inside the park (not to mention, they missed their show, so it was cancelled). They find that one light is still on, in the castle, where Dr. Franknstein is working on the monster. The Chipmunks witness the monster being resurrected. But Alvin drops his cap, and when he gets it, Dr. Frankenstein sees him. He sends the monster after them on a wild goose chase through the park. Eventually, they end up on a roller-coaster with the monster on their tail. They lose him when he gets scared and stops the car, then when he finally lets go, the car lurches forward going faster than the ride was engineered. This causes the roller coaster to go off its tracks into the park sidewalks. They climb out and run out of the park. In the ruckus, Theodore drops his teddy bear, and the monster finds it.


When the boys get home and go to sleep, the monster finds their house and returns the teddy bear to Theodore. It starts to rain, and Theodore feels bad for him, so he lets him sleep in his bed that night. The next morning, Dave goes to the park to consult with the manager to book them for the premier that night of the new Bud Wiley movie. Meanwhile at home, the Chipmunks take the monster (Theodore refers to him as "Frankie") to the park and teach him about being kind and making friends. When the sun is setting, the four are heading home to cook dinner for Dave. They make lasagna, but Frankie accidentally takes it out of the oven with out gloves and burns his hands. In the process, he throws the lasagna out the window. Alvin goes out to retrieve it, but is kidnapped by the Doctor and taken to his lab in the theme park. Dave comes home, and Simon and Theodore, are told by him they are playing at the premier. They then run off to the park with the monster to rescue Alvin.


At the park, Dr. Frankenstein makes Alvin drink a purple concoction. Then the doctor electrocutes him with 50,000 volts to "complete the process" as he says. The Chipmunks then burst through the door and knock over a few bottles of brains to distract Dr. Frankentein as they rescuse him. When they get out, Simon steals the book Frankenstein was using. He reads that the doctor fed him "Cartoon Monster Maker" which instructs to serve cold with 50,000 volts of electricity. Then to wait three minutes. Simon checks his watch. The three minutes are up! Just then, Alvin grows to an enormous size, then shrinks down to his normal size. But he is not his normal self, and now resembles a cartoon character. He has a spiral for one eye, and his nose has grown and it is shiny. He runs away in a cloud of smoke.


At the premier, he begins to wreck everything, like he is in a crazy cartoon. He destroys a table with a chainsaw, defaces the movie's poster, and pops inside peoples wardrobe and messes up their hair. Simon and Theodore make an antidote from food on the buffet and go to feed it to him. But he must be upside down for it to work. When Bud Wiley arrives, Alvin closes his autograph book around his face. Bud begins chasing him, and they end up on top of a cut out of Wiley 100 feet in the air. Alvin is upside down when it begins to collapse, so Simon and Theodore throw it at him, and he drinks it. When he becomes normal immediately, he helps Bud by holding on to him when he almost falls. Dave and the boys make a trampoline out of a tablecloth and rescue them both.


In the theatre, Dr. Frankenstein manages to sneak in dressed up in a costume of Sammy the Squirrel (the park's mascot) after being denied entrance to the party. He sees that Alvin is cured, but realizes if he shocks Alvin, he can turn him back. He turns the mic to a high reverb so when Alvin touches it, he would be shocked. But then the Monster turns up, and grabs the doctor. As he is carrying him, he slips and Dr. Frankenstein grabs the microphone to steady himself and gets shocked. The people see the monster and start to run to him, but Theodore tells everyone if they are kind to him, he will be kind to them. Dr. Frankenstein awakens and tries to get the costume off, but can't.


In the end, Dr. Frankenstein is now the new entertainer, the Monster gets a job as a bus driver for tourists around the sets. At night, the sounds are still heard in Frankenstein's Castle.

The Chipmunks - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2880 words)
The group consists of three singing chipmunks: Alvin, the mischievous troublemaker, who quickly became the star of the group, Simon, the tall bespectacled intellectual, and Theodore, the chubby, impressionable sweetheart.
The Chipmunks themselves are named after the executives of their original record label, Liberty Records: Alvin Bennett (the president), Simon Waronker (the founder and owner), and Theodore Keep (the chief engineer).
The Chipmunks' voices were recorded onto audiotape by voice talent talking or singing at half the normal speed.
