  2. Paddle To The Sea

    28 minute short I had to watch in elementary school.
    A boy carves a canoe out of wood and sends it on it's greatly improbable way to the ocean.
    Along the way, the canoe meets people and has adventures.
    The canoe does.
    Yes.

  3. Big Boy (1954 educational film)

    A terrible educational folksy short on steam engines. I mean truly terrible, it starts with the narrator insulting the lead's wife and talking about how normal him loving an engine is. This has Kevin Murphy written all over it

  4. Farm Family in Autumn

    Hi,
    I’m a big fan of Bridget and Mary Jo, especially the Farm Family series. I recently completed the set by purchasing Farm Family in Autumn and became curious about what happened to the Markham kids (Heaven’s Gate cultists? DeLorean investors? Sec. of the Interior?) That’s when I stumbled upon this interesting tidbit! Hopefully this is new to you guys. P.S.- Mary Jo, you were right! Grandpa was a fraud!

    Sincerely,
    Patrick Sandberg

  5. 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.

  6. Flannel Boards And How To Use Them

    It may be only half the length of Setting Up A Room, but it has twice the tedium! I remember flannel boards from Sunday School, but this takes them to a whole new level!

  7. North Korean Pocahantas (TV Series)

    Laser-eye shooting animals, terrible animation, time travel, and a hodge podge of historical revisionism.

  8. It Was All A Dream Sequence

    A collection of shorts where something is sold in dreamsequence like Design for Dreaming or Once Upon A Honeymoon. I doubt those are the only two advertising fever dreams. I’d love if Mary Jo and Bridget joined in too.

    Hidden Hazards in Your Home - Narrated by William Shatner - I have a VHS tape dying to be riffed. It is a household safety video narrated by none other than the Man himself.

  10. A Day at the Magic Kingdom and A Day at Epcot (1991)

    Magic Kingdom: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mwFkpZgYaOo

    Epcot: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOEnWRfPlZU

    Videos sold at the parks back in the early 90s that followed various families around. Presents lots of prime riffing fodder both from an early 90s kitch and promotional Disney standpoint.

  12. 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…

  13. MST3K Shorts only!

    You guys already release most of your RiffTrax Live shorts separate from the shows.

    So it would be super awesome if you started releasing all the MST shorts separate from their movies! REALLY awesome!

    There are many shorts where I don't like the movie they're attached too, "Uncle Jim's Dairy Farm", "Circus on Ice", "Out of This World" and SO MUCH MORE!!

  15. Metrics for Primary: How Big is Big?

    This educational short teaches kids about metric measurements in liters and volume; which sounds like a nice idea, if not for the fact that this short contains puppets that would make Jim Henson shake his head in disgust (or scream in horror).

    Here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=70k9gBICVQU and skip to 32:11.

  16. BALLAD OF THE BIG ONES (1969) - Truck Song, but about the ********* Clydesdales

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ab7rvuiIwi0

    This short has three sections that literally sing the praises of the Clydesdales that pull the beer carts and two sections where a narrator talks over film of horses walking around.

    The song is performed so forcefully and passionately you'd think they were singing about eight wild west folk heroes from Scottland.

    The "BALLAD OF THE BIG ONES" is now available as a 33 1/3.

  17. Dungeons Dragons TV Series (1983-1985, 27 Episodes)

    Dungeons Dragons TV Series (1983-1985, 27 Episodes) There are several episodes that would make great riffing material. And 24-minute run times make them perfect shorts!

  18. Christopher Crumpet

    A weird little UPA cartoon about a spoiled kid who turns into a chicken when he throws a temper tantrum. His dad even calls him "a real ****-a-doodle-do."
