  2. Wonky Whistle (Thomas and Friends episode)

    This episode is hated by almost every fan of the franchise. This is because of its unrealism, annoying alliteration, redundant rhyming, and a little blue air headed idiot tank engine. Proof that Thomas is an idiot: Not realizing that his whistle was "wonky" and leaving the Steamworks with two workman on his tanks.

  4. Are You Listening

    A horrifying giant mouth teaches horrifying giant ears about the importance of listening to directions. There's also weird superfluous footage of animals in a zoo, because why not?

  6. The Nutshack

    I'm not sure if this counts as a short, it's a TV show, but I couldn't find a TV show suggestion function. So anyway, this is one of the worst cartoons ever made, and I think you could get some material out of this.

  8. "A Touch of Magic" https://archive.org/details/TouchofM1961

    "A Touch of Magic" is the MPO produced, GM financed sequel to "Design for Dreaming." Nuvena herself , Thelma "Tad" Tadlock stars in it once again, and it is just as bonkers. 1961.

  9. The American Heart Association's current BLS (Basic Life Saving) video

    There are various skits with live actors about someone who becomes unresponsive and needs CPR, only when the actor or actress actually starts doing CPR, the person in need of help is switched out for a mannequin, which is suddenly wearing the person's clothes and and is in the same position the person was just in! This effect was especially creepy for the baby- CPR skit. Our entire class was laughing so hard it hurt!

  10. Habit Patterns

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9GTBMGUUz6I&t=3s

    One of the most depressing shorts I've ever seen - this is up in Social Acceptability or The Snob territory, and I've been wanting to see Maryjo and Bridget take this one on. Basically a narrator berates this hapless girl for 15 minutes because she doesn't wash her clothes, get up on time, or take interest in books.

  12. klaus

    German Forklift safety training video

    Very over-the-top German forklift safety training video that really drives the point home. Very dark humor. German with English subtitles, but they're really not necessary, as you can figure out what's going on without them.
    Enjoy...
    "Forklift Driver Klaus"

  13. Magic Kingdom Club: Update '94

    https://youtu.be/kACtckmJuxM

    We somehow stumbled across these hidden gems on youtube- Magic Kingdom Club was kind of a discount card program for Walt Disney World before they had a vacation club. We looked through all of these, but this one is the most bizarre. Hosted by a VERY spray tanned Aladdin and Valley girl Jasmine, Im not even sure how this made its way to distribution. Might be hard to get the rights for it but we at least wanted to share. A must watch- truly 90's in all its cheesy splendor.

    This short film was produced and directed by J. Larry Carroll, who also wrote episodes for shows like G.I. Joe and Diagnosis Murder.

  15. "Match Your Mood"

    https://archive.org/details/match_your_mood

    This overly groovy ad for Westinghouse refrigerators is public domain and, well, laughably weird. After all, who doesn't want to apply burlap or brick-texture Contact paper to their fridge while dancing around it on New Year's Eve?

  16. Jay Can Do It

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I3JGYtJrydY - Honestly, I don't know exactly why this movie was made, which is why it'd be perfect riff material. A rather dumb looking kid has a bunch of experiences that don't seem to be connects, from baking cookies to meeting a policeman. The only explanation I have for it is that it's a time capsule for some alien race. Hilariously bad.

  17. The Boy Who Liked Deer

    A mid 70s cautionary tale of bad crowds and vandalism. In the late 1980s, this was aired to all the 3rd graders in our class, and may well be one of the best cases of nightmare fuel for a young child to see.
    I don't know if this could be made funny, but I'd love to see what could be done with it

  18. Greenwich Village

    15 min short shown on TCM Sept 11 at 5:45am EDT. Early 70s in all its fashion glory, extolling the charms of quaint Greenwich Village, a suburban oasis in the big city (not the way I remember it in the 70s). It takes some doing but I THINK I finally identified it as promoting cotton as a fabric. I'm not making that up.
