Storyline

Collins College needs a new department head for their science department. Doctors Carter and Zorch consult Thinko, the campus computer, and come up with Dr. Mathilda West, who has degrees in lots of things, but turns out to be disruptively attractive as well. Meanwhile two thugs search for Sam Thinko who is muscling in on the race horse action, the captain of the football team is having trouble not passing out in front of the opposite sex, and Admiral McFortune, a benefactor of the college, becomes attracted to Dr. West, who has a past dangerously close to becoming public knowledge.

Trivia

Elektro was constructed by the Westinghouse Appliance Division of Mansfield, Ohio, and only one copy was made. Construction began in 1937 and it was put on public display in early 1939 just before being sent to the New York World's Fair of 1939. It was modified for this film, filling in the circle and putting in the square on his chest for the speaker. The Mansfield Memorial Museum has the original Elektro. See more »

Alternate Versions

A foreign release version runs 103 minutes. The additional footage consists of four burlesque dance routines by four strippers who strip all the way down to brief panties and do typical burlesque bumps and grinds. These occur one after another on the night club set, empty except for Thinko and the chimp. The sequence is inserted when Thinko has a nervous breakdown, apparently intended to be Thinko's hallucination. See more »

Like watching Judge Judy do aerobics in a thong
30 May 2001 | by emingesSee all my reviews

There are no actual decapitations, cattle mutilation, desecration of houses of worship, or spurting arteries in Sex Kittens Go To College. Within those limits, this is ghastly beyond anything you can imagine.

Imagine Mamie van Doren as an ex-stripper with an IQ of 268 and twelve college degrees - no, thirteen, hired as a college professor. Imagine Jackie Coogan as a blustering oilman doing a 45-minute W.C. Fields impression. Imagine Martin Milner out-geeking Eddie Deezen, a twelve-foot robot named Thinko that handicaps horse races, a chimp in golf pants. Imagine the most credible and disciplined performance in the film being turned in by Louis Nye. Imagine Vampira so hagged out you'd flee to the arms of Nancy Kulp...Brigitte Bardot's little sister as an exchange student...Conway Twitty...fire engine...funny gangsters... Are your sides aching with laughter yet?

Terrifyingly awful. The only saving grace is that neither Woody Woodbury nor Paul Anka makes a guest appearance.
