  1. Name Unknown (1951)

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

In short, everyone is always schemeing to steal from or to murder teenagers.

  3. It's Everybody's Business

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=220XsrVZ1rk

    An educational cartoon from 1954 that lets the viewer know that capitalism was always the basis for all of our freedoms.

    There's also the message that the government provides vital services but that means taxes, so be sure to protest the government taxes.

    And there are also women in bikini's standing in front of open fridges. Because of course.

  4. Military Police: Town Patrol (1955)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w_-UbRxlxCk

    The 28-minute short shows two MPs as they patrol Agusta, Georgia. And it looks like someone spliced scenes from an entertaining-enough police procedural to make a dull educational film.

    The MPs instruct one soldier on bus routes and pay close attention to try and spot soldier's shoes. But in between all that they come across a soldier who was beaten up and mugged.

    In fact, the line "You better call the station and get an ambulance" is spoken with much less severity and gravity than the following dressing down of a poorly dressed soldier. "Okay, now you look like…

  5. Ghost Stories

    Japanese anime that kind of parallels Scooby Doo but with a notably atrocious and bizarro world English dub.

    Maybe Riff two or three episodes.

  7. Your Safety First

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W8pvcGWtXXE

    Described as "Jetsons before the Jetsons", "Your Safety First" is half future fantasy, half history of automotive safety features. Grandpa who speaks like an old-time prospector ties it all together at the end.

  8. New world thru chemistry 1939 with audio from New world thru chemistry 1936

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cy7zrtFeuwU

    Someone posted a youtube video that uses video from one short and audio from another. Sometimes the audio and the video work well enough together. Other times it goes off the rails. E.g., a waiter spills wine on a woman's blouse while explosions play. Wallpaper is printed while the narrator talks about using coal and ammonia to make fertilizer for farms. It'd make for a hell of a riff.
