Fictional teen sleuths Frank and Joe Hardy are the sons of the celebrated private detective Fenton Hardy, ex-NYPD ace detective, and his wife, Laura. Visiting or living with them (depending on the book) is Fenton's elder sister, 'Aunt' Gertrude Hardy.

They reside in an unspecified Northeastern state's seaboard city of Bayport, located near the Atlantic Ocean on Barmet Bay.

The Boys are highly mobile and have a car, motorcycles and a motorboat, The Sleuth, and seemingly unlimited funds to take plane trips and the like.

Frank and Joe are accompanied on all their adventures by their particular chum, the chubby farmboy Chet Morton. Their other chums are Biff Hooper, Tony Prito, Phil Cohen, and Jerry Gilroy.

Frank and Joe date, respectively (and respectfully), Callie Shaw and Iola Morton, the sister of Chet Morton.


The Bayport Police Department is represented by Chief Ezra Collig, Patrolman Con Riley and, in the early unrevised stories, Detective Oscar Smuff.

The Hardy Boys were thought up in 1926 by Edward Stratemeyer and his Stratemeyer Syndicate, which then advertised for ghostwriters to write the stories from outlines provided by the Syndicate. Leslie McFarlane answered the advertisement and would wind up writing the first sixteen volumes of the series and volumes 22-24. The Syndicate also created Nancy Drew, Tom Swift, the Rover Boys and dozens of other memorable characters.

Since the release of the first three 'breeder' volumes of the original Hardy Boys books in May 1927 (copyrighted May 16) by New York publisher Grosset & Dunlap, the Hardy Boys have never gone out of print and they remain popular today with close to 500 titles published across several different series.

Starting in 1959 the first 38 stories were revised and abridged, much to the dismay of long-time Hardy Boys fans. The books were shortened from 25 chapters to 20 and had a more uniform length to reduce publishing costs, obsolete prose, which dated the stories, was updated, and racial stereotypes, the subject of many letters of complaint, were eliminated.

Revised titles from The Secret Panel to The Mystery At Devil's Paw were merely edited down to size from the original titles. Although the stories were given the same titles and some of the plots remained basically the same, many books were given new plots and are unrecogizable from the originals. Unfortunately, the quality of the writing was nowhere near as high as in the unrevised versions and the resulting stories lost much of their original charm.

After the 1979 court battle in which Grosset & Dunlap lost the rights to publish any new Hardy Boys tales, Simon & Schuster started publishing new stories in paperback format (the Digests), although Grosset & Dunlap retained the right to print the original 58 stories (the 'canon') and the Detective Handbook.

The Digest series continued until 2005 when it was replaced by the Undercover Brothers series, which ran to 39 volumes and ended in 2012 when it was replaced by The Hardy Boys Adventures in 2013.

In addition to their solo adventures in the original stories and the Digests, they have joined forces with Nancy Drew in two Supermystery series, the two volume Super Sleuths series and the Be A Detective series and with Tom Swift in the short-lived Ultra Thriller series.

Their adventures continue in two series of paperback books (The Hardy Boys Adventures and Clue Books) as well as the hardcover books published by Grosset & Dunlap.
