Old Friends is an episode of the Alvin and the Chipmunks series.
The boys visit Celebrity Mall to look for things to buy with their birthday money. Alvin buys a skateboard and knocks into an elderly woman taking her for a wild ride. She enjoys the thrill, but Simon and Theodore insist on buying her lunch to make up for the incident. Alvin assumes that she is wealthy from a story on the news so he goes back to the mall in search of her, convinced she is looking to give him an award. He is mistaken for the shopping mall mugger by an undercover cop and arrested. Out of jail, Alvin heads to the mail once again only to accidentally interrupt the making of a Cleano commercial. That night before the boys go to bed, after the mall trouble, instead of getting the prize, Alvin ends up getting the sniffles. When his brothers try to give him advice about doing good deeds, he misinterprets it and decides to throw a party for the elder citizens. The woman Alvin hit invites Dave, Simon, and Theodore to a fancy dinner while Alvin, despite his lack of preparation, learns that the elderly can be great fun.
- "It's Hip to Be Square" originally performed by Huey Lewis and the News.
- Cleano is likely a reference to a Mr. Clean floor cleaning formula released in the early 1980s.
