Rat Pfink a Boo Boo is a 1966 film directed by Ray Dennis Steckler and starring Carolyn Brandt. Perhaps the most striking feature of the film -- beyond the low production values -- is a sudden switch in tone and plot that comes roughly forty minutes into the movie. As originally planned, the film was a straight-faced crime drama titled The Depraved, inspired by a series of obscene phone calls by which Steckler's ex-wife Carolyn was being harassed. During shooting, Steckler suddenly got the inspiration to make a parody of the campy Batman television series instead. As a result, in the middle of straight crime drama action, the star of the movie steps into the closet with a previously minor character and they emerge costumed as "Rat Pfink" and "Boo Boo", parodies of Batman and Robin.
