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

Ray Dennis Steckler tried to make a straight crime drama. After shooting about 40 minutes of footage, he decided the film was simply not working. He couldn't afford to scrap the footage, and portions of the film were unintentionally funny, so he had two characters go into a room, then burst forth in makeshift costumes as Rat Pfink and Boo Boo. He padded out the rest of the film with chase scenes, fight scenes, and even an encounter with a gorilla. He shot footage of the duo appearing in a real-life parade, as if it were being held in their honor. When the main title was being animated, the "n" and "d" were accidentally left out, so the title appears as "Rat Pfink a Boo Boo." 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 »

What can you say about this infamous mess? Steckler had a strange sense of humor but he was smart enough to keep putting Carolyn Brandt in his films. Brandt couldn't act much but she was a hot piece of ass and was always sexy in her roles. The dubbing is especially bad as there was no microphone during filming so all dialogue and sound effects were put in later like the sound of a toilet flushing when they tried to start the motorcycle! Rat Pfink's voice sounds like a drunk Bullwinkle or Yogi Bear. You know your in for a cheap movie when it has a narrator for no reason at all. The fight scenes are phony and what was up with having a gorilla in the film? The gorilla handler was a real strange guy, he sounded real gay and had a big round butt. Why was Rat Pfink always pointing his finger when they rode in the motorcycle? And Boo-Boo cannot fight to save his life. And when the thugs wanted to get money all they did was make crank calls to Brandt before they kidnapped her. Why? Movies that are this low budget and inept are interesting to watch and I wouldn't be telling the truth if I said I wasn't entertained by this nonsense. Good shots of Hollywood in the mid sixties. If you love really bad films than you have to see this one!
