  1. Caught in a Rip-Off (1974)

    From the people who brought you "Cheating" and "Shake Hands with Danger" comes this 1974 scare film about shoplifting, entitled "Caught in a Rip-Off." Some unseen guy who sniffed one too many cans of spray paint (to paraphrase the words of one YouTube commenter) tells about how clerks in your local Hobby Lobby employ one sly tactic after another to discourage burglary. Accentuated with weird (but not atypical) 1970s Moog synthesizer musical stings, this makes for an interesting subject that is riff-worthy.

  3. American Women - Partners in Research (Short)

    https://archive.org/details/American1960_2

    Short film that epitomizes sexist behaviors of the late 50's early 60's. With Chet Huntley (!) of NBC News. Made by a company here in Buffalo, NY. I can see Bridget & Mary Jo sinking their teeth into this one. In the public domain.

  4. Mickey Mouse: Seat Belt Expert

    Co-produced by the infamous Coronet Films, this Disney live-action short teaches kids (and one negligent adult) the importance of wearing a seat belt. This short also makes liberal use of the following: the same Mickey Mouse costume you'd find at Disneyland; a little girl with the apparent power to absorb other people into her daydreams; a cameo by the protagonist of the classic short "Courtesy: A Good Egg-sample;" and, even some zoom-ins on our beloved mouse's crotch. This short just begs for a good riffing!

  5. Rock Odyssey: A Rocks & Minerals Revue

    Two very stupid children called Chrystal and Sandy find a mysterious map that directs them into a dark, dank cave containing their worst nightmare: a punk-rock geologist bandleader called Micah who starts them on a magical musical journey to learn more about rocks and minerals. This journey includes many terrifying rock creatures in terrible costumes, more caves, more musical numbers and many interesting(?) facts about rocks!

  7. How to Succeed with Brunettes

    An overly tacky do's and don'ts video, produced by the Navy, mixing dates and business (no, not like prostitution). The picture quality is really good, for some reason, unlike most old shorts. There's some great riffable moments, but in general it flows well enough to keep people watching in case you guys crap out on some quality riffing..haha..j/k Take a gander.

  8. Gary Coleman For Safety's Sake (1986)

    "Actor Gary Coleman appears in this instructional video designed to show children how to be safe and stay safe. Included are tips on accident prevention, how to stay safe when home alone, and other procedures that have been developed by the National Safety Council and the American Red Cross.
    - Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com"

    Sounds as terrible as the above mention description implies.

  9. St. Louis Museum of Transportation Virtual Tour Video

    This sounds weird (it's a lot of words) but it's soooo very riffable! I don't know what the copyright laws would require, but it's worth thinking about. For one thing, the camera is set on oscillating, for two, it keeps repeating the tour of the kiddie playroom a thousand times, and for three, the museum's not even that cool! It's really boring.
    Mike, Kevin, Bill: PLEASE try this. I'm begging you. And if you can't actually riff it for real, at least watch and make fun of it for your own enjoyment.

  10. writing well./paragraphs

    This is an educational short that me and my friends at school loved as a kid. It's about a couple of kids learning how to write paragraphs from an alien named axolotl. The alien is just a man with aluminum paint and a curly blue wig. And if that weren't enough, he's actually living in one of the kid's house, ALF style. Except of course this particular extraterrestrial hates cats and thinks they're trying to eat him instead of the other way around. I cannot tell you how much I would love to see this short riffed on. I hope…

  11. Marble countertop instructional video

    My wife and I bought a house from an old couple and as a courtesy they left us and instructional video tape for our marble countertop. Its made by DuPont. I also have one for a GE stove. These are great because they're from a time where companies thought people would take the time to watch this

  12. RiffTrax, please riff "What's it to you? Mylar!" I heard it had been done before but was somehow lost.

  13. Walt Disney The story of Menstruation

  14. Ultraman (1960's series)

    The 1960's dubbed Japanese series with the Science Patrol (Hayata, Fuji, etc.) Each episode was like 30 minutes. The orange outfits with the matching ties are reason enough to riff on it.

  15. Garlic is as Good as Ten Mothers

    It's 51 minute foodie documentary from 1980 (and it looks it too).

    It's a love story to garlic (which as depicted wasn't really a big trend in the US back in the 1970s and earlier if you believe the talking heads).

    One talking head mentions that he believes that vampires are real. Werner Herzog also makes a cameo.

    Lots of dialogueless food prep providing plenty of space for riffing.

  16. Dating Do's And Don'ts

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FxBOSdl-b54

    The lead character's name is Woody. There are probably at least ten good jokes in that alone. One of those dating etiquette shorts that offers divergent time lines in how to choose, ask for, and end a date

  18. Write On! The TV Ontario TV Shorts

    Coming from the bizarre realm of the 70s PBS/GRETA Dimension, I submit to RiffTrax: Write On! The TV Ontario Shorts.

    Just as aci attempted to educate on reading with From Left to Right, Write On was basically a series of shorts which was supposed to educate on grammar and punctuation.

    This shindig took place within a mythical newspaper building with a cranky editor, and two reporters. One of them known as Jack, was sort of a Walter Mitty type, since some of the shorts would take place in his wild imagination.

    Basically it usually had the group in inexplicable situations…

  20. Video games Cut scenes

    Riffing the cut scenes of big name current video games. From Destiny and Halo to Grand Theft Auto and Assassins Creed. A compilation would be just great I think.
