Rat Pfink A Boo Boo

So how does one approach a Batman spoof that wasn't intended to be one?  John and Robert are sitting in the Batman and watching the infamous Ray Dennis Steckler film, Rat Pfink A Boo Boo.  In it, our hero's girlfriend is being menaced in the first 45 minutes of the film.  Based on the setup, one would think that our hero would turn detective to try and stop it, but when she's kidnapped at the halfway point, he and the gardener in his girlfriend's building enter a closet and come out as the masked avengers - Rat Pfink and Boo Boo.

John and Robert Long are watching their Bat-Monitors and are cringing at the turn of the events for this film as well as the costumes our heroes wear, while marveling at some of the directing choices and laughing at some genuinely funny lines.  It all adds up to a movie that leaves you scratching your head and wondering what it was you just watched.
