  • Quotes

    • 50's Theodore: Hey, look! A color TV! And with more than 3 channels!

    • 50's Dave: They look terrible, Doc! And they're hallucinating! They're talking about synthe-somethings and wrapping paper and... and wearing a moose on my head! Please hurry over!

    • Dave: They look terrible, doc! They think Eisenhower is the president! And they've never heard of Michael Jackson!

    • Simon: (looks at Clyde's time machine) Hmm... "Puree, mince, frappe". It looks more like a blender.
      Clyde: Very good, Simon. It started out as a blender, but when I hit "puree", it sent me back in time, to the year 1957.

    • Alvin: (after the Chipmunks big battle of the bands against the 50's Chipmunks) You guys were awesome!
      50's Alvin: You were pretty cool yourselves!
      Clyde: (checks the results on his machine) And the winner is...
      (the bell dings, and the final results pop out of the machine, and Clyde looks at them)
      Clyde: The Chipmunks!
      Simons: Which Chipmunks?!
      Clyde: According to my patented Rock-U-Meter, you tied.
      Alvins: Aw, nuts!
      Theodores: Now what?!
      Simon: (to the real Alvin) Alvin, you'd better talk to yourself, or your career is over!

  • Notes

    • This episode crosses over with The Alvin Show, a 1950s television series created by Ross Bagdasarian Jr.'s father.

      The Alvin Show characters are using the same character models from the previous series but uses the animation/production cycle of the 1980s series.

    • When the Theodores say "Now what?!" their lips aren't moving.

    • This is the only season in which all episodes are entirely 30 minutes long.
