Hardy Boys (Characters)

"Hot dog!"
"Hot dog?"
"It's an expression of excitement and enthusiasm. Joe and Frank Hardy and I used to say hot dog all the time while we were waiting for the carhop to bring us our malteds at the drive-in."

Frank and Joe Hardy, like Nancy Drew, are committed to making the world a safer place to be, one bad guy at a time. Also like Nancy Drew, they seem to have found the fountain of youth, remaining 17 and 18 years old (or 15 and 16 years old, depending on which edition of the books you're reading). Unfortunately for Keith, he doesn't seem to have found that fountain, since he's looking significantly older than the three of them would have been when they went to the drive-in movie and drank malteds. Finding it should be his next case. Hmmm, I wonder how much hair Keith had when he was 17.
