  1. "Swingin' Six" ZIP Code Video

    4 good reasons (because I'm an overachiever) to riff this short from the 1960's about using ZIP codes, found at https://youtu.be/QIChoMEQ4Cs:

    1.This is an actual US government short. If you don't riff it, the terrorists win.

    2. Cavemen. Not sure what it has to do with the postal service, but cavemen. Occasionally in very short skirts (yes, still the men).

    3. To find out why not using ZIP codes will make your true love desert you.

    4. They rhyme 'question' and 'indigestion' in a song. Oh, did I mention it's a musical?

    • Am I Normal

      This is a weird film from the late 1970s about a boy who is growing up . He asks questions of any and all people about going through puberty . It is rife for riffing !!

      • "... so I took it!"

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PUIwF36NTCI

        This public domain short from 1975, produced by Sid Davis for Motorola (whose logo takes on a seizure-inducing calling card), tells the story of a preteen girl who is taken by the allure of shoplifting by her best friend Glenda. Generic 1970s music that sounds like it's trying to imitate an Italian song, sub-par acting from child actors, and the most unidentifiable objects taken from the apparent local K-mart are among the noticeable elements in this Sid Davis short.

            • Rock Odyssey: A Rocks & Minerals Revue

              Two very stupid children called Chrystal and Sandy find a mysterious map that directs them into a dark, dank cave containing their worst nightmare: a punk-rock geologist bandleader called Micah who starts them on a magical musical journey to learn more about rocks and minerals. This journey includes many terrifying rock creatures in terrible costumes, more caves, more musical numbers and many interesting(?) facts about rocks!

              • Caught in a Rip-Off (1974)

                From the people who brought you "Cheating" and "Shake Hands with Danger" comes this 1974 scare film about shoplifting, entitled "Caught in a Rip-Off." Some unseen guy who sniffed one too many cans of spray paint (to paraphrase the words of one YouTube commenter) tells about how clerks in your local Hobby Lobby employ one sly tactic after another to discourage burglary. Accentuated with weird (but not atypical) 1970s Moog synthesizer musical stings, this makes for an interesting subject that is riff-worthy.

                Here is the YouTube link below:

                        • Paddy the Pelican Shorts

                          Calling these fifties-era, made-for-TV cartoon shorts cheap would be an insult to cheapness.

                          Apparently, they're based on a character who started out as a puppet on a Chicago-area kids' show. The black-and-white animation looks like a pencil test. The animation is nothing but endless loops over and over. One single man does every voice in the cartoon, and not only does he sound like he did his voice recording in a broom closet, the quality of his acting in general makes Tommy Wiseau sound like Sir Ian McKellen. The dialogue this "actor" is reading sounds as if he lost the…

                          • Mickey Mouse: Seat Belt Expert

                            Co-produced by the infamous Coronet Films, this Disney live-action short teaches kids (and one negligent adult) the importance of wearing a seat belt. This short also makes liberal use of the following: the same Mickey Mouse costume you'd find at Disneyland; a little girl with the apparent power to absorb other people into her daydreams; a cameo by the protagonist of the classic short "Courtesy: A Good Egg-sample;" and, even some zoom-ins on our beloved mouse's crotch. This short just begs for a good riffing!

                            • And Then It Happened

                              70's bus safety short, wherein all the kids are dicking around on the bus to varying degrees. Features live animals, a switchblade, and kids flying around like socks in the dryer. I didn't even ride the bus and I think it traumatized me. (https://youtu.be/dmyizLWUxtM) I remember it differently, but still.

                                    • Otis (Episode One) [Interactive Movie]

                                      There is an short movie here: https://www.nukhu.com/otis/ but with a twist: there are three character perspectives/narratives and you can switch the perspective of one of three people on the fly with the A, S, and D keys. I think this would make a great experiment for Rifftrax by splitting Mike, Kevin and Bill into the three character perspectives to riff each accordingly, maybe via a plug-in or a deal with the owner of the movie(s) (BTW, I spoke to the director/manager of the movie and he's really keen on the idea of Rifftrax riffing on them).

                                      The movie is not…

                                        • Return of the Ewok (1982)

                                          Weird ass behind the scenes mockumentary (?), where Warwick Davis alternates between himself and an ewok bouncing back and forth between our world and sets of Return of the Jedi.
