Keeping Up With The Humphries is an episode of the ALVINNN!!! and The Chipmunks series.

Plot

The Chipmunks battle Bocarter in a space game but end up losing for the first time due to a new computer, the Mach 4, now in the possession of their nemesis. Dave arrives to the Seville House as his classic car sputters, emitting black smoke, only to be criticized by Bocarter's father as he shows off his new car. The boys attempt to flatter Dave when he opens the door though he instantly knows they want something. They make the argument that the new computer could help them get better grades, schools, and jobs to eventually solve world hunger. Dave refuse to buy the computer, citing a need for a new engine instead, so Alvin resorts to plan B: building the computer themselves. The brothers collect every processor in town to build the computer in the basement though the temperature is first dropped to near freezing to keep them cool in order to work. While the boys succeed in beating Bocarter, Dave learns Mr. Humphrey drove his car into a lake and government workers scramble to maintain the energy grid as power is diverted and entire states go dark. The town's power begins to go out as Brittany suddenly feels Alvin's done something again. Back home in the dark, Dave and the boys talk about how others will always have more than them and that family is more important shortly before a mail truck of electric bills arrive and the President learns of an energy crisis caused by Alvin.
