  3. 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 These shorts felt outdated at the time and they definitely haven't aged gracefully.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.

  4. How It's Made

    Saw this in FB comments, not my idea but a really good one. The TV series How It's Made ran for years, full of short vinettes of how everyday items are constructed. The narration and pacing make it super riffable.

  6. Tea Making Tips (BBC, 1941)

    You can give it a watch on the official BFI YouTube channel here:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vnvYymrCn4g&t=16s

    I just feel you guys tend to do fantastic jobs riffing on instructional videos in general, and one as genteel and specific as this could result in some absolute laugh out loud moments!

  7. Mrs. T. and her Cabbage Patch (BBC, 1941)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C9xLQBUi6Ic

    I think the official BFI YouTube description of it sells it better than I could:
    Poetic tribute to Mrs Turner's vegetable growing prowess, plus the delights of "wartime steaks".

    Also: Mrs. T. I pity the fool who wouldn't consider riffing this!

  8. sweet sea

    Sweet Sea was produced by Tomy in 1985. It was a very short lived sea themed series which included one doll, four friends, fashion, cosmetic accessories by Avon, jewellery and a 30-min animated video. i must tell you however, it's anime-influenced cause tms entertainment made it, veteran osamu dezaki made it and vestron video's children's video library made it. it's fun to riff because all our favorite tv show characters from the late 90s and early-mid 2000s learned to do it too. you know which ones i'm talking bout willis. shows that currently rerun on mtv2 and fuse and fuse…

  9. dixie's diner

    Dixie's Diner was produced by Tyco in 1988-89 and was a 1950's style diner. Along with the main Diner playset there were several additional items which were sold separately to add to the diner. There was also eleven poseable figures produced as well as a VHS cartoon. the story line says "Come on down to Dixie's Diner and enter a whimsical world of laughter and fun. A world where every kid can live out their wildest, most hilarious dreams. Where you can dance as long as you want, sing as loud as you want, and feed your face on an…

  10. P.J. sparkles

    P.J. Sparkles is a 1992 animated television special produced by Mike Young Productions. The special was more-or-less an advertising vehicle for a Mattel doll. Jodi Benson, best known for voicing Ariel in Disney's The Little Mermaid franchise, voiced the title character. the only reason why you should riff it is because you can compare it to sly 2 band of thieves.

  12. Superman The Artic giant

    I think Superman the Artic giant would make for a fun riff as first it's been a while since an animated short has been riffed, secondly the premise of the short is really dumb, and finally the dinosaur looks like a Japanese Daikaiju years before they created any.

  14. video game promo videos

    back in the 90s and early 2000s, many new video games would get previewed with footage on a video tape most especially nintendo 64 since they refused to make a bunch of demo carts even if they did with pokemon stadium, mario party 3, the legend of zelda majora's mask, donkey kong 64 and jet force gemini. there's also playstation one promo videos made as well and of course sega. if you must riff sega vhs', dvds, laserdiscs and betamax's do the promo videos only. that means no anime or tv shows or movies based on the sega games. there's…

  16. Playstation Underground Demo Discs

    In 1997, sony computer entertainment america launched a cd based magazine that doesn't make you read but makes you play called the playstation underground. the psone versions always spanned 2 discs which were great for playable demos, trailers, imports, behind the scenes featurettes, exclusive first class looks on upcoming games, cheat codes, bulletins, demonstrations on first party accessories, downloading save files, walkthroughs on best winning the game, special events and easter eggs. the ps2 version was just one dvd. it all ended in 2001 when they've decided to merge with the official us playstation magazine just as they've transitioned to…

  18. Santa Claus and the Fairy Snow Queen

    This is a "short" although it’s longer than most, too long actually. The reasons are:
    1) "Snoopy" is very reminiscent of Mr. B Natural
    2) The Snow Queen wants Santa’s schwanstucker or something I couldn’t quite understand her.
    3) The Jack in the Box will cause you to wish him dead in some horrible way.

  20. Miss Manners on Weddings

    This is on YouTube and it is amazing. 80's hair, bad acting, and smarmy, uptight Miss Manners presides over it all, "helping" two clueless, selfish horrible people and their selfish, horrible families plan a wedding. The first 2 minutes also include an actor (in what he must've thought was his big break) as a waiter, reciting the ENTIRE special of the day, down to the parsley flakes on the baked potato.
    This was MADE for Bridget and Mary Jo. Check it out: https://youtu.be/QEJKwagADyQ
