* NonIndicativeTitle: There are no actually beatniks in ''The Beatniks''. The writers seem to be either be under the impression that "beatnik" means something along the lines of "delinquent" or "hoodlum", or that the name comes from beat - as in ''music'' - niks, or possibly a bit of both.

* PoisonousFriend: Once again, Peter Breck as Mooney. He avoids being TheStarscream solely because he doesn't want to be a leader: "Leaders got too much on their ''minds'', man...I only got time for one thing --" [incomprehensible hand gesture; EvilLaugh]]

* InformedAttractiveness: Helen. To be completely fair, of course, she's merely following the styles and trends of her day; but her too-huge eyes, tightly pulled back platinum hair and pancake makeup provide her with an unfortunate resemblance to a skull. The harsh lighting and the black-and-white film stock aren't doing her any favors either.

Eddy Crane (Tony Travis) is a down-on-his-luck kid in the late 50s/early 60s who, along with his FiveBadBand pack of hoodlums -- Mooney (Peter Breck), Red, DarkChick Iris and SatelliteCharacter Chuck -- lives only to rob convenience stores for petty cash and then lounge around. That is, until one day when talent scout Harry Bayliss happens upon Eddy singing ("You call that singin'? That was nothin'!" [[InformedAbility You can say that again...]]) and quickly tries to sign him to a big record deal. Eddy is at first bitter and reluctant but eventually agrees, on the stipulation that his hoodlum gang can stay with him.

Off to downtown L.A. where Eddy meets the Helen, Bayliss' secretary, setting up the inevitable LoveTriangle. As Helen begins grooming the rather rough (or so we're told) Eddy into a straight-laced star, he begins to see the futility of his Beatnik ways. His {{Poisonous Friend}}s, on the other hand, are bound and determined not to let him leave them behind in his rise to the top, and continue to create mischief and mayhem -- which culminates when AxCrazy Mooney shoots a barkeeper dead during an altercation, thus jeopardizing not only Eddy's career, but his entire future.
