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...

Did You Know?
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
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
