  1. Marvel Super Heroes "Animated" TV Series

    In 1966, Grantray-Lawrence Animation produced a TV series made up of shorts revolving around various Marvel heroes--Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Namor The Sub-Mariner, and The Hulk. These stories were taken from the Silver Age comics.

    And when I say "taken from," I mean literally. The "animation", and I use the term generously, was basically the original comic art with some animation--moving lips, the occasional (slightly) moving figure or a fully animated silhouette, on-screen sound effects.

    These shorts reflected the slight cheesiness of Silver Age comics--characters describing their actions even as they played out onscreen, somewhat over-inflated dialogue, etc. In…

  2. More shorts like the Bill Baird marionettes...maybe just a show with short features instead of a whole movie

    I love those "short features" that you do before a full length movie. That short with the Bill Baird marionettes was hysterical. I would love to see a short with just short features.

  3. Shopping Can Be Fun (1957)

    Bridget and Mary Jo have done riffs on menstruation, the suburbs, and Tupperware, so they would be perfect to riff this early tribute to the shopping mall.

    It's also in the public domain.

    And it can be found here:

  5. Heil Honey, I'm Home

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5kg21j4ARBY
    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0259776/reference

    An amuse bouche of an idea of what this nonsense pilot episode of a failed sitcom that lasted ... one episode is about:
    In Berlin, 1938, Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun have a love-hate relationship with their Jewish neighbours in this bizarre spoof of 'fifties American sitcoms.

  9. 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..

  10. 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.

  12. 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. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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??

  16. 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.

  18. 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!!

  20. 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
