  1. Goldilocks and the three bears in 3d

    I had this nightmare of a children's movie as a kid. It is definitely a trip. I think it, along with your guy's humor, would make a great Rifftrax short. Please consider.

      • Instant French

        In keeping with the wackiness of shorts like Phoebe, this gives us a look at the strangeness of 1960s Canada culture. Bilingualism, mistresses, corporate intrigue, black & white film, plus an animated logo to take on Coronet and ACI. What could go wrong?

        20+ minutes of pure madness to start your day right in our topsy turvy world today.

        • Any old 80s fast-food training video you can get the rights to

          There's a lot of great cheesy 80s fast-food training videos out there, like for Wendy's and McDonald's. It's a riff goldmine.

          • Benji's Very Own Christmas Story

            A man in Switzerland who claims to be St. Nicholas takes a girl through a door marked "Verboten" into Santa's workshop.
            Here, we learn about Santa's changing roles in different countries via costume changes and a song or two. We also get to see the elf children (with discolored pointed putty on their noses) wearing politically-questionable cultural attire in an ironic effort toward unification. Watch out for those rice hats! How could you turn down a Christmas short that takes creative cues from 1959's Santa Claus??

            Also, the girl happens to be holding the dog named Benji in her arms…

            • Siberia Invites You To Visit: 19??

              https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ET3P3UJXl00

              This short film tries to sell westerners on visiting Sibera. A place with an inland beach, villiages with museums, a college, the siberian tiger, Donald Duck intellectual property theft, and so much more.

              The short tries its hardest, but Siberia doesn't come across all that much more interesting than Milwaukee. Milwaukee if it were stretched to cover 5,000 miles, at that. The short even ends with a woman dancing to a generic lounge act while a bartender pours a giant bottle of booze.

              Siberia invites you: a magical land where the sea air is pungent, the summers are hot…

                    • Paddle To The Sea

                      28 minute short I had to watch in elementary school.
                      A boy carves a canoe out of wood and sends it on it's greatly improbable way to the ocean.
                      Along the way, the canoe meets people and has adventures.
                      The canoe does.
                      Yes.
                      Really

                      • "This Is Coffee" - An instructional short about how you're making coffee wrong.

                        An alternate title for this short could be "Go to Hell French Press"

                        At first, this 12 minute short celebrates the diverse styles of coffee and the many ways to enjoy it.

                        But then it insists that there's only the one Coffee Brewing Institute approved method to make a cup of coffee using one of three types of coffee pots. Anything else doesn't count as coffee.

                        • Catweazle

                          I'm an American/Dutch dual citizen, living in Holland for ten years and the US west coast for fifty years before that.

                          My Dutch husband called one of our kitties "Catweazle" this evening, and I asked him what on earth he was talking about. It turns out that "Catweazle" was a British-made children's show from the early '70s that he watched on TV as a small child.

                          I watched Season 1, Episode 1 of "Catweazle" (oh, I never get tired of typing that name!) on YouTube, and it was fifteen minutes of riff-worthy delight.

                          I had never heard of this show…

                          • Raggedy Ann and Andy (1941)

                            This Fleischer cartoon gives "Fun in Balloonland" a run for its money in the sheer insanity department. There's a character with a pair of scissors for a head, and Ann and Andy are SEWN TOGETHER at the end.

                            • Private Snafu or A Few Quick Facts (1942-1946)

                              Series of animated shorts used to educate WWII soldiers on many touchy, difficult subjects. PVT Snafu being voiced by the legendary Mel Blanc.

                              One has to be wary to not pick the shorts with obvious racist depictions of the Japanese army/navy/etc.... One episode was written by Dr. Seus.

                                It's a 30 minute video tape that came with a board game back in the 80s. It's really cheesy and perfect.

                                  • Depending On Weather

                                    Adverse weather conditions are a hazard for the unprepared driver. Motoring writer and race driver, David Mckay, gives his check-list for reliable motoring with safety during extreme weather. (NFSA Films)

                                    1. thrill as what is meant to be a joyful drive gets a man muddy

                                    2. marvel at adverse weather

                                    3. enjoy the process of changing a tire

                                    • Crystals 1958 Alan Holden - Bell Laboratories

                                      I ran across this short on youtube. A teacher at Bell Laboratories talks about the Physics of Crystals and their Cleavage. It's perfect Riff material!

                                        Or, a history of my dating life.

                                        Just kidding, it's a short from the '50s about Antarctica! Starring some overly adorable penguins.

                                        • Manager On The Case (1989)

                                          Made by Film Australia 1989. An outline of how rehabilitation programs are administered in Commonwealth Agencies with specific reference to the role of the case manager. (NFSA Films)

                                          1. it has a young Russell Crowe, which should be reason enough

                                          2. it has some funky late 80s tunes

                                          3. learn about the bureaucracy of the public service

                                          4. random teleportation
