Rat Pfink And Boo Boo

by Ray Dennis Steckler
Utterly Goofy Crime Fighters

It starts like a normal sixties B movie: there's a crime story about a girl receiving threatening phone calls, and there's a hero who plays surf rock at pool parties. The movie's already a little bit goofy, but it's mostly straightforward drive-in schlock. But about halfway through, it's clear that the entire crew decided to make a completely different movie. At this moment, the rock star and a supporting character jump into a closet and then jump out again as RAT PFINK AND BOO BOO, defenders of justice and fighters of crime! They wear the cheapest thrift-store ski-mask disguises as they jump into a motorcycle and chase down the villains that have kidnapped The Girl. It completely switches into a silly superhero parody as our heroes speak in Quick Draw McGraw voices while fighting crime (and wrestling a gorilla too!) in Benny Hill fast-motion slapstick. It's not So Bad It's Good; it's just straight-up fun.

Lonnie Lord (Vin Saxon) is a rock & roll star who sells millions and loves to sing, anywhere and anytime. When a trio of psychotic hoodlums kidnaps his girlfriend, Cee Bee Beaumont (Carolyn Brandt), Lonnie and his faithful gardener sidekick, Titus Twimbly (Titus Moede), know it's time for action. They step into a closet and emerge as Rat Pfink and Boo-Boo, two costumed crime fighters who bear more than a passing resemblance to Batman and Robin: "Together they blaze a four-fisted campaign against the enemies of truth, justice and the American way of right!" They track down the evil doers and rescue the distressed damsel, but an escaped circus gorilla is on the loose and soon Cee Bee is in danger again. This bizarre low-budget mixture of crime drama and superhero spoof features great rockabilly non-hits like "Big Boss A-Go-Go-Party" and "Running Wild." Fred Beldin, Rovi
