  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. 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!!

  7. 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

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. "This Is Coffee" - An instructional short about how you're making coffee wrong.

    An alternate title for this short could be "Go to Hell French Press"

    At first, this 12 minute short celebrates the diverse styles of coffee and the many ways to enjoy it.

    But then it insists that there's only the one Coffee Brewing Institute approved method to make a cup of coffee using one of three types of coffee pots. Anything else doesn't count as coffee.

  12. Slingblade

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

  14. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.
    Really

  18. 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

  19. 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

  20. 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!
