In the later Crimebusters series, it was stated once that the Three Investigators team was initiated when the boys were The investigators were typically introduced to a mystery by a client or by finding something unusual accidentally in the scrapyard of Jupiter's Uncle Titus Jones and Aunt Mathilda, who had a salvage business. The boys encountered baffling, sometimes misleading clues and danger before finally solving the mystery.
The series had one major theme: This theme was compromised on four occasions by Carey: Most mysteries were solved by Jupiter Jones, a supreme logician who implicitly used the Occam's Razor principle: The boys were able to solve their mysteries with relatively few resources: In the first book, The Secret of Terror Castle , Jupiter bluffs his way into the office of director Alfred Hitchcock and makes a deal with him that if the Investigators can find him a haunted house to use as a location for his next movie, Hitchcock will introduce the story of their adventures. Hitchcock agrees, not expecting them to succeed; but at the end of the book is impressed with the boys' investigation and not only introduces the book, but also refers several other future clients to them in subsequent novels.

The last chapter of each book was usually an epilogue in which the investigators sat with Alfred Hitchcock and later, "Hector Sebastian" , reviewing the mystery and revealing the deductions through the clues discussed earlier in the book. The investigators were now 17 years old, could drive cars and were much more independent. The stories continued to include an abundance of detecting, but with the addition of more action.
The series was well-received, but was halted during , when legal disagreements between Random House and the heirs of the Arthur estate could not be resolved. By , the disagreements were still not settled. At least eleven novels were published in the CrimeBusters series, which was initiated by one of the series' authors, William Arden, pseudonym of Dennis Lynds, who wrote the Dan Fortune mystery series for adults by the pseudonym Michael Collins.

Stone were published in Germany. The Three Investigators are a junior detective team that initially came together because of a mental exercise club. In some of their cases, the boys are supported by Alfred Hitchcock , the chauffeur Worthington, and the police inspectors Reynolds and Cotta. Often, that reaction is a joke, with the clients asking whether the question marks mean the investigators doubt their own abilities.

Jupiter usually retorts something like: So we use it as our trademark. We investigate any kind of mystery. To prove themselves, The Three Investigators usually have a lot of persuading to do in the beginning, as the clients often mistrust their abilities because the investigators are so young. In their first cases, The Three Investigators also provide, apart from their business card, a letter of recommendation from the Police Department of Rocky Beach signed by Chief Inspector Samuel Reynolds.
The authority advocates any support from third parties. Jupiter is intelligent and stocky, and has a remarkable memory and deductive skills. Jupiter's parents professional ballroom dancers died in a car crash when he was four years old. Jupiter's past acting ability benefits him frequently in mysteries because he can act older than he is, perform imitations of people when necessary and act less intelligent to extract information from potential suspects.
Jupiter is a prolific reader and inventor and frequently invents a device that simplifies solving a mystery. Jupiter has a knack for usually thinking about clues correctly to solve an otherwise unsolvable mystery. He also likes to play pranks on the other two investigators.

Jupe hates to dismiss an unsolved mystery, which frequently means that he drags Bob and Pete along for the ride. Peter "Pete" Crenshaw , Second Investigator—Pete is an athletic youth who dislikes dangerous situations, but is nonetheless reliable as the "action member" of the team.
Pete loves and cares for animals, and is fond of uttering the exclamation "Gleeps! His father works as a film technician for special effects in Hollywood. Pete is a frequent companion of Jupiter on stake-outs and other field trips, particularly in the earlier mysteries, when Bob is unavailable. While he may not have the intellectual ability of Jupiter, Pete is nonetheless considered as an equal in the stories and is able to point out Jupiter's own shortcomings usually in a comical fashion. He is also capable of making deductions and sometimes serves as the clue-bearer instead of Bob.
He has an excellent sense of direction, as in The Mystery of the Stuttering Parrot. Early in the series, Bob is hampered physically by a leg brace he wore, due to multiple fractures inflicted when he rolled down a hill. This handicap relegated him to a more studious and less physical involvement. Bob works part-time in the local library , suiting his role as data collector. Bob also serves as the clue-bearer for many of the adventures, because of his research at the library.
Bob's leg brace is removed between the end of Whispering Mummy and the beginning of Green Ghost. The office of the Three Investigators is a house trailer, hidden among the piles of scrap at the edge of Uncle Titus' scrapyard. The house trailer has multiple secret exits, a small lab, a darkroom , and an office with a phone, typewriter, and reference works.
