  1. Target...Austin, Texas (1960)

    The folks at Rifftrax haven't riffed a civil defense short in a while. This ultra-low budget one was filmed in Austin, Texas for a local TV station. In spite of the grim subject matter, there's enough weirdness to riff over, like the extremely cramped fallout shelter in one family's home, the secretary who freaks out during the bombing (and turns into an extra from CARNIVAL OF SOULS), and (most especially) the idiot who disobeys all orders, and essentially winds up as compost. The full short can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bCQePqXEwwA .

  2. Freeze-In (1969)

    Laugh-In's Arte Johnson and Judy Carne squander their comedic talents for the sake of training Sears appliance salespeople on the right and wrong ways to sell a freezer. Lame, dated humor; the blandest announcer they could find (could they not meet Gary Owens' price?); and Judy apparently not wearing a bra add to the surrealism of this short, available at https://archive.org/details/freeze_in .

  3. Dream Bunny in Dreamland

    An absolute fever dream of a rejected TV pilot. Creepy dolls, bad acting, weird costumes, it's no wonder it failed

  7. 2 Souls

    My Daughter had to do a short film for her school project. Being fans of MST3k and Rifftrax she asked if I could request a riffing. I said what the heck so here is the request.
    2 Souls is about a girl named Heaven. Heaven is has a curse. She has another side to her. A demon side. The demon is named Nevaeh. Nobody except for Heaven can see Nevaeh. Heaven is trying to control with Nevaeh. Little does Heaven know that someone is always watching her. The one who gave her the curse.

  8. Food and Magic

    https://archive.org/details/FoodAndMagic

    A short featuring the magic of film editing, with the only carnival barker ever to wear a natty business suit, about the importance of food conservation in WWII. Features questionable facts, magic that isn't, lots of little vignettes, and an America where no one is concerned when a bloody, filthy soldier turns up for dinner.

  10. Introducing 🇮🇸Iceland [The Atlantic Community Series - NATO Documentaries, 1955]

    Nato history channel as a list full of these for different countries, all utterly ripe for riffing. They all have that way-too-serious narration that 50's documentaries and shorts have that would make it absolutely perfect.
    They are all free to watch on youtube as well!
    Here's the one on Iceland: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLXVOXd7TU2-YixUWqUfWQw

  11. Running For Empties (1988)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=utbT3IL3P2Y

    This is a 9 minute short from New Zealand about two schoolboys and a man in short shorts who deliver glass bottles of milk.

    It is wholesome, sincere, and grounded, yet it has several over the top moments. Like an animation of the van turning into a spaceship. Or a cat knocking a bottle off a wall.

    It ends on a note that soon people will be able to buy milk from grocery stores, leaving the kids (and the viewer) as witnesses to the end of an era.

  12. Mannix

    The MST3K crew often made references to "Mannix," one of my all-time favorite shows. Why not do a riff on an episode of that classic series? Season 1 had Mannix working for a hi-tek detective agency. Mannix's specialty was insubordination. Season 2 onward he was on his own, with a regular stable of frenemy lieutenants, and oddly colored sportjackets.

  13. My Santa (2005- ) AKA Itsudatte my Santa

    Santa is a magical girl in this two-episode anime/OVA for Christmas later this year? Yep. There's an English dub. And, the protagonist is also named Santa. Six months' worth of story arcs in two short episodes.

  17. Play Safe

    Before "Shake Hands with Danger" (1980) and even before "Last Clear Chance" (1959), there was "PLAY SAFE" (1936), from the same studio that brought you Betty Boop and Popeye.

    "PLAY SAFE" is the charming public-domain animated tale of a boy and his dog . . . as they navigate a hellscape of anthropomorphic demon trains who just want to warn the young fellow that it's dangerous to fall unconscious on the train tracks! All of this cautionary whimsy is set to a musical score that sounds like Minnie the Moocher's drunk uncle, Vinny.

  18. Adventures of Captain Marvel (1941)

    I have really been enjoying the Batman and Robin serial you guys riffed, so I thought maybe you guys could do Captain Marvel before he got renamed Shazaam! From clips I have seen of this one, Captain Marvel is one ******* superhero as he is played by a weightlifter so we get to watch him throw actual people across the room! Better still, he does not play around, cross him and he'll throw you off a cliff or use a machine gun to gun you down as you try to flee! Would make for a totally awesome riff!

  20. A Cranberry Christmas (2008)

    • It has characters named Cyrus Grape and Mister Whiskers.
    • Music is by Barry Manilow.
    • It's sponsored by Ocean Spray Cranberries and this fact is screamingly obvious.
