  2. Peppermint

    After Jennifer Garners Loses her Families to Latino gangsters she becomes a homeless street fighter to learn how to wage irregular asymmetrical warfare using small arms. If only it had aliens it would be semi-believable..

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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??

  8. 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.

  10. 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!!

  11. 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.

  13. Not without my handbag

    It’s a very creepy claymation short (little over 10 mins) about a lady who dies but comes back as a zombie to get her purse. It features the devil, the dead lady, and her very young niece who now lives alone. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mIvQZm8K-yU

  15. Slingblade

    Lucas black is the little boy, Billy Bob Thornton is the main character "Carl".
    This would be a good one to riff.

  16. Du côté de la côte

    This seems to be considered something “special” and is apparently part of the criterion collection but it was just weird if you ask me.

  17. Trucks

    Trucks, a movie from 1997, it’s maximum overdrive’s basement dwelling stepchild. Even the radio controlled tonka trucks murders the mailman to get out of this movie. No real big name actors, but when a fire breaks out, every actor in the movie looks at the smoke and ask, what the **** is that? There’s even an inflatable axe wielding killer. How can you go wrong with redneck hating trucks? The TV seems to only come on when the reporter reminds everyone that there is no electricity and then fades back out to static.
    1. Trucks that don’t really seem to…

  19. Instant French

    In keeping with the wackiness of shorts like Phoebe, this gives us a look at the strangeness of 1960s Canada culture. Bilingualism, mistresses, corporate intrigue, black & white film, plus an animated logo to take on Coronet and ACI. What could go wrong?

    20+ minutes of pure madness to start your day right in our topsy turvy world today.

  20. Operation Blue Line starring the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990)

    A 10-minute promotional VHS given out at supermarkets and the like. The Turtles shill with honor as they cross the country to LA in order to promote the LA Metro Blue Line, a rail system running from LA to Long Beach. In order to accomplish their goal, they must overcome the sinister Gridlock, a malefactor who wants to keep LA congested with traffic and smog.

    Reasons this deserves a riffing:

    -The Turtle costumes are pretty cheap-looking. They just look like giant versions of the original TMNT action figures and have no jaw articulation whatsoever. They make up for it by…
