"Beverly Hills and the civilized world will never forget them."

The Hollywood Knights is about a group of high school pranksters that are trying to get even with a neighborhood association for trying to tear down their favorite hangout. Some of the members of the group include Newbomb Turk, Duke, Sally and Smitty. The Hollywood Knights have been committing pranks together for some time. The group uses Tubby's Drive-In as their main hangout. On Halloween night, Newbomb Turk learns that the Beverly Hills Residents' Association has convinced the city to demolish Tubby's as it is considered a nuisance and an eyesore. The residents' association wants to put up an office building in its place.

Newbomb Turk guides his crew through a series of pranks against members of the neighborhood association and against a pair of cops assigned to watch the gang. Time after time, the Hollywood Knights use these antics enrage the officials and allow the gang to enjoy one last night of lunacy before they must face the fact that their favorite hangout is being torn down.

The pranks pulled by the group include an initiation ceremony where pledges are left in a dangerous part of Los Angeles wearing no clothes, the spiking of a punch bowl during a neighborhood association meeting and several drag races throughout the area. The gang is really just looking for a good time without doing any real harm to anyone.

The Hollywood Knights is essentially about growing up and coming to terms with becoming more responsible. These high schoolers have had quite a ride, but when Tubby's is set to be torn down, they know that ride is about to come to an end. They realize that even though they can get back at the neighborhood association for what it has done, it is probably not going to change the final outcome. Newbomb Turk and his group know that the best way for them to deal with the situation is to go out and blow off stream in exciting, hilarious ways.
