  1. 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.

  3. Santo gold

    I heard about this years ago and just remembered it. From the link below:

    "Santo Gold is without a doubt the most bizarre infomercial I’ve seen. This infomercial tries to do two very different tasks at the same time: sell a gold jewelry business opportunity and promote a “science-fiction space wrestling movie” called Blood Circus. Either one of these would be laughable enough on its own, but the combination of the two is downright unnerving."

  4. Better Use of Leisure Time (1950)

    [video type="youtube"]BH_gncP_5vc[/video]

    "Better Use of Leisure Time" is a short about how people today (1950's) have never had it so good. So if a teen has free time and they aren't doing some form of learning or labor then they're wasting their present and their future!

    Parts of it feel prime for ripping while other parts feel like an unattainable punch to the gut. E.g., a house and a family on a single-income 40-hour a week job that allows the breadwinner time to cut out early for family and hobbies.

  6. Marvel Super Heroes "Animated" TV Series

    In 1966, Grantray-Lawrence Animation produced a TV series made up of shorts revolving around various Marvel heroes--Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Namor The Sub-Mariner, and The Hulk. These stories were taken from the Silver Age comics.

    And when I say "taken from," I mean literally. The "animation", and I use the term generously, was basically the original comic art with some animation--moving lips, the occasional (slightly) moving figure or a fully animated silhouette, on-screen sound effects.

    These shorts reflected the slight cheesiness of Silver Age comics--characters describing their actions even as they played out onscreen, somewhat over-inflated dialogue, etc. In…

  7. More shorts like the Bill Baird marionettes...maybe just a show with short features instead of a whole movie

    I love those "short features" that you do before a full length movie. That short with the Bill Baird marionettes was hysterical. I would love to see a short with just short features.

  8. It’s Potty time

    It’s an old Duke University video..its has to be seen to be believed. True nightmare fuel. Fantastically you can find it on amazon. It would make an epic riff.

  9. Shopping Can Be Fun (1957)

    Bridget and Mary Jo have done riffs on menstruation, the suburbs, and Tupperware, so they would be perfect to riff this early tribute to the shopping mall.

    It's also in the public domain.

    And it can be found here:

  10. Heil Honey, I'm Home

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5kg21j4ARBY
    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0259776/reference

    An amuse bouche of an idea of what this nonsense pilot episode of a failed sitcom that lasted ... one episode is about:
    In Berlin, 1938, Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun have a love-hate relationship with their Jewish neighbours in this bizarre spoof of 'fifties American sitcoms.

  12. Journey through stress

    1. This was shown every year in my highschool. I recently found it again and it would absolutely tickle me to see this riffed by the hilarious folks whom I have loved since an early age.

    2. There is a particular scene involving a chili dog where everyone in my high school audience would shout "THROW IT!".

    3. Just watch it! It is delightfully terrible.

  13. Song of the Clouds

    1957 video promoting air travel. Produced by Shell Oil. You did an earlier short on, I think, flight attendants which was hilarious. Have a go at this one! Link is here: https://youtu.be/qlPae2b9FVU

    By the way...I am from Nebraska and the guided cave tours in Omaha are terrific.

  14. 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.

  15. Wolf Tracer's Dinosaur Island

    45 minute long animated dinonightmare starring Luke Skywalk... um... Mark Hamill.

    What blackmail material did the director, Colin Slater have on Mark Hamill to force him to do voice acting in this and Rapsittie Street Kids: Believe in Santa (2002)? Arguably, two of the ugliest and worst animated films ever created??

  16. I Pity The Fool

    Mr. T had a reality TV series in 2006 where he would share his wisdom with those in need. The wisdom would often take the form of amazing one-liners like: "The T stand for Uni-T" or, my personal favorite, "Sometimes the T stand for things that don't even rhyme with T. Like 'nice'." This treasure unfortunately only ran for 6 episodes.

  18. The Death Zones

    Every year, during the first week of school, students would be forced to watch the Death Zones...a film produced in the 70's which was supposed to teach kids about bus safety. Instead it made the teachers cry and terrified the students with its snuff film style cinematography!!

  19. 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.
