Alvin demands a short trip away from the obsessed fans who begin following him everywhere he goes. Trying to escape, The Chipmunks go for a picnic out in the woods, only to be stalked by their fans. Alvin runs off into the woods, and runs into a wild chipmunk. He decides to change places with the chipmunk, and he stays in the chipmunk's tree, while the wild chipmunk takes his place. All goes well until the real Alvin is caught by a hunter that holds him hostage. Simon, Theodore, and the wild chipmunk must save Alvin.
