After Mike (Nelson) and the Bots (Bealleau & Murphy) throw a shower for Gypsy (Mallon), they receive a communication from Dr. Forrester (Beallleaau). He is upset to find that TV's Frank (Coniff) has gone missing. Mike and the Bots have no idea where he is, either. When Dr. Forrester discovers dynamite in Frank's closet behind his Jane West doll, he becomes concerned. Nonetheless, he sends over the experiment, anyway: the short Keeping Clean and Neat and Ed Wood's The Sinister Urge.
MST3K presented The Sinister Urge in edited form to remove nudity and a few of the more violent scenes.

Riffs are solid throughout. Only the running gag about the film not having any sex in it falls somewhat flat if you are aware that MST3K edited the sex out themselves. Not really fair to blame Ed for something they (or at least the distributor they got the film from) did.
