Storyline

It starts off seriously enough, with three thugs robbing an innocent young woman at night in the city, but then switches to Vin Saxon and Carolyn Brandt doing a goofy Elvis-like rock 'n roll number (very charming though). The next day the thugs are bored. Picking a name at random out of the phone book, they decide to terrorize Carolyn Brandt. After some campy dramatic scenes, she is kidnapped by the goons. They decide to ransom her. After receiving the ransom call, Vin Saxon and the good-natured, but not- to-bright gardener sit around despondent, wondering what to do. "There's only one thing to do!" exclaims Vin. The two rush off into the next room and become the costumed heroes Rat Pfink and Boo Boo... Written by Mick Taylor <alhazred@aracnet.com>

Trivia

When the kidnappers open the briefcase containing comics, the most visible magazine is Issue #2 (January 1965) of "Monster World," published by Warren and featuring the cast of The Munsters (1964) on the cover. Monster World was a sister publication of Famous Monsters. While Famous Monsters had a long distinguished career, folding only when Warren went under, Monster World didn't last as long. See more »

Goofs

The first girl is chased by a gang of two people. When they accost her, a third gang member appears. Much later, when one of them comes back with the ransom money for Cee Bee, the gang suddenly has 4 members. In the middle of the scene, it shrinks back to three again. See more »

Incredibly strange and mixed-up "superheroes"...
2 November 2001 | by InfofreakSee all my reviews

If you've seen Ray Dennis Steckler's cult classic 'The Incredibly Strange Creatures...' and thought it was a silly, unbelievably bad mess, you haven't seen anything yet!! 'Rat Phink a Boo Boo' actually surpasses it! It is even sillier, more incoherent, cheaper and basically makes absolutely NO SENSE at all. At least '..Creatures..' had a semblance of a plot, 'Rat Phink..' doesn't even bother trying! The movie begins like a thriller with the kidnapping of a rock singer's girlfriend by some heavies then... well I won't spoil the experience for you! Let's just say things don't turn out QUITE like you might think...

This is one of the strangest low (and I mean LOW!) budget movies of the 1960s. Watching it is like watching a car crash. You know you should stop looking at some point but you just can't tear your eyes away!

Makes Ed Wood look like Sam Fuller.
