Old Friends is an episode of the Alvin and the Chipmunks series.

Plot[]

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. When Alvin watches the news, there is a human interest story about a wealthy old lady who rewards ordinary people who do good deeds. Thinking he is due for a big reward, Alvin returns to the mall and finds the old lady, only to take off her shawl and wig to reveal a man in a police uniform who arrests Alvin! The charges are then dismissed, and Dave apologizes for that, saying that the undercover cop was looking for muggers. Alvin heads to the mail once again and finds the old lady, who is actually an actress and Alvin interrupted the making of a scouring powder commercial and gets knocked into a bucket of water. That night before the boys go to bed, Alvin grouses that the only thing he has gotten is the sniffles. When his brothers try to give him advice about how a good deed is its own reward, Alvin misinterprets this that he should throw a party to draw out the old lady. Alvin goes to all the places senior citizens gather and advertises his party, which is met with applause. However, the night of the party, Dave and the boys are invited by the wealthy old lady to have dinner. Dave tells Alvin he cannot go, as he is responsible to host the party. Alvin realizes he has a problem as there is no food nor party decorations. When the guests arrive, Alvin explains his situation, to which the guests are not disappointed in the least. They have been ignored and marginalized in the community and are happy to get out. They are also connected or grandparents of the town's restaraunters and merchants, and easily call in food and decorations. On the yacht, the old lady realizes Alvin is not here and invites him aboard, but when Dave calls home, Alvin says he has learned his lesson; the elderly can be great fun and he would be foolish to abandon such a great party at home!
