  1. SchoolHouse Rock Educational Shorts

    Schoolhouse Rock was a big part of my public school education. Basically every time it rained during recess, or a teacher just didn't want to deal with us, we'd be treated to an hour or so these educational animated shorts. These shorts felt outdated at the time and they definitely haven't aged gracefully. I'd love to watch you guys rip history, and my childhood education, a new one by taking on Schoolhouse Rock.

  2. Food and Magic

    https://archive.org/details/FoodAndMagic

    A short featuring the magic of film editing, with the only carnival barker ever to wear a natty business suit, about the importance of food conservation in WWII. Features questionable facts, magic that isn't, lots of little vignettes, and an America where no one is concerned when a bloody, filthy soldier turns up for dinner.

  7. Play Safe

    Before "Shake Hands with Danger" (1980) and even before "Last Clear Chance" (1959), there was "PLAY SAFE" (1936), from the same studio that brought you Betty Boop and Popeye.

    "PLAY SAFE" is the charming public-domain animated tale of a boy and his dog . . . as they navigate a hellscape of anthropomorphic demon trains who just want to warn the young fellow that it's dangerous to fall unconscious on the train tracks! All of this cautionary whimsy is set to a musical score that sounds like Minnie the Moocher's drunk uncle, Vinny.

  8. 2 Souls

    My Daughter had to do a short film for her school project. Being fans of MST3k and Rifftrax she asked if I could request a riffing. I said what the heck so here is the request.
    2 Souls is about a girl named Heaven. Heaven is has a curse. She has another side to her. A demon side. The demon is named Nevaeh. Nobody except for Heaven can see Nevaeh. Heaven is trying to control with Nevaeh. Little does Heaven know that someone is always watching her. The one who gave her the curse.

  9. Introducing 🇮🇸Iceland [The Atlantic Community Series - NATO Documentaries, 1955]

    Nato history channel as a list full of these for different countries, all utterly ripe for riffing. They all have that way-too-serious narration that 50's documentaries and shorts have that would make it absolutely perfect.
    They are all free to watch on youtube as well!
    Here's the one on Iceland: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLXVOXd7TU2-YixUWqUfWQw

  11. MST3k Shorts Compilation

    I don't suppose you guys could do a compilation of shorts of MST3k? Kind of like the VHS and DVDs that just featured them. My father loves watching those, but he burnt out the DVDs.

  12. It's Wonderful Being a Girl

    Oh, this brings back a memory! In 5th grade, the girls got a note that they were going to the auditorium to see this film while we were stuck in class. As the Paul McCartney song "Girls' School" says, "they put the papers on the window"! I remember being jealous that the girls got their own movie.
    When I asked one of the girls what the movie was about, I got a very terse "none of your business"! This would make a great short to riff -- although it might be safer for Bridget and Mary Jo to do it!

  17. Star Leaf

    It has awful dialog, awful acting, and an awful plot. It’s a perfect candidate

  18. Adventures of Captain Marvel (1941)

    I have really been enjoying the Batman and Robin serial you guys riffed, so I thought maybe you guys could do Captain Marvel before he got renamed Shazaam! From clips I have seen of this one, Captain Marvel is one ******* superhero as he is played by a weightlifter so we get to watch him throw actual people across the room! Better still, he does not play around, cross him and he'll throw you off a cliff or use a machine gun to gun you down as you try to flee! Would make for a totally awesome riff!

  19. Them!

    "Them!" is not a short! Why is that the only choice? I don't think you've riffed it before...

    It's a movie starring James Whitmore and Edmund Gwenn (Santa Clause from Miracle on 34th Street!)

  20. Smith School of driving (ca. 1960)

    The "world famous" Smith School of driving is still active, so I doubt you could get permission, but the old-school driver's ed. films (somewhere from mid-'50s to late '60s I'd guess) are pretty damned funny, and ripe pickin's fer riffin'. Smith is a cantankerous pedant who likes to refer to trucks as "billboards" and admonishes drivers to "give the signal" (presumably their middle finger) at parked motorists as they pass. Nothing tops the combination of educational film cheese, with middle america values cheese, with ****** mid-century car cheese, with an over-determined and "five point system" taken all too seriously cheese,…
