Moments after the end of Class of Nuke ‚Em High 2: Subhumanoid Meltdown (1991), the mutant squirrel Tromie is subdued and life in Tromaville returns to normal. Roger Smith is overjoyed at the birth of his twin sons, Dick and Adlai. Unfortunately for all concerned parties, Dick is kidnapped at the hospital and subsequently raised to be evil by the thugs who took him. Adlai, meanwhile, is raised by Roger to be kind and peaceful.

Trouble comes in the form of the loathsome Dr. Slag, Ph.D., who uses Dick to frame Adlai for a crime he did not commit in the hopes of turning the denizens of Tromaville against him. If his wily plot works, Slag will turn the town into a toxic wasteland; with destruction looming, it is up to Adlai to save the day.

The plot is loosely based on William Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors. The only thing carried over is the storyline of the twins being separated and a later identity crisis following. Not much else remains the same.

Unlike Class of Nuke ‚Em High 2, Class of Nuke ‚Em High 3 carried over the cast and characters of Class of Nuke ‚Em High 2.

Wrestler-turned-actor Brick Bronsky started his career with Troma Entertainment in early 1990 during the filming of the superhero film Sgt. Kabukiman N.Y.P.D. (1991) as the henchman ‚Jughead‘. Kaufman and Herz enjoyed working with Brosnky so much that they offered him a lead in Class of Nuke ‚Em High 2 which was filmed in 1991.

Thinking that Bronsky had good star power, he was brought back for the third film in three different roles (in the trailer, he is credited for four roles) to showcase his acting career in hopes of getting him noticed by more people as the talented actor they thought he was.

During the marketing, Troma Entertainment advertised him as their own action stars, giving him a parade in Cannes and talking about him as if he was just as big as any other action star out there. Despite the advertising to help the film and Bronsky’s career, the film did not get noted much out of Troma Entertainment’s fanbase and Bronsky only appeared in a handful of film after the third Nuke ‚Em High, often in the henchman role.

After having trouble releasing its films with other distributors (Warner Home Video, Fox, Lorimar, etc.), Troma Entertainment created its own distribution company in 1995 under the label Troma Team Video and Class of Nuke ‚Em High 3 was advertised as the company’s first major release on VHS. Held back for a year and only released on video, Class of Nuke ‚Em High 3 became legendary not for its content, but for what it represented — that the company had taken a huge step forwards in labeling and marketing its own films.

After a couple of years as one of its biggest sellers, Class of Nuke ‚Em High 3 went out of print, and with the decline of video, Troma Entertainment decided not to re-release it because — despite being highly popular with fans — it felt that the film itself was inferior to some of its other titles.

In the middle of the 2000s, Troma released a Class of Nuke ‚Em High box set, which featured the original 1986 film in the same DVD format it had had since 1997 and Class of Nuke ‚Em High 2 which had just recently been released on its own. For years, the box set was the only way of being able to buy the third film on DVD. However, in early 2010, alongside a re-release of the 1986 film by the Troma Retro label, the third film was released separately.
