  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  5. 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."

  6. Janet and the Food Genie (1967)

    Janet may as well be Henry Slinkman's daughter. Her mother has sent her to the grocery store but she doesn't know what food grades mean!

    Fortunately, she can count on the help of an animated Food Genie. He takes her on a whirlwind tour of food processing plants and laboratories where she learns all about how food is graded. She must have been collecting the groceries during her factory visits because the film ends with her putting the groceries away.

    The genie is barely animated, and those animations are recycled a lot. Location shots are intermingled with stock fotage. An…

  11. Oceans 8

    Danny Ocean's sister gets the heist bug and forms a crew to steal a valuable necklace,while it's being worn. I know they don't like to riff comedies,but there is nothing funny in this movie. Lapses in logic,a cast thrown together out of name value alone and the only likeable character is Rhianna who is missed when she's not onscreen. Lacking the energy,sleight of hand and humor of the Clooney series

  13. Simba: The King Lion (1995– )

    North Korean/Italian coproduction ... ripping off Disney's Lion King.
    But at least the animals have laser beam powers to make the story more ... interesting? Plus there are soccer episodes with flame thrower wielding NYC rats.

  14. Benji's Very Own Christmas Story

    A man in Switzerland who claims to be St. Nicholas takes a girl through a door marked "Verboten" into Santa's workshop.
    Here, we learn about Santa's changing roles in different countries via costume changes and a song or two. We also get to see the elf children (with discolored pointed putty on their noses) wearing politically-questionable cultural attire in an ironic effort toward unification. Watch out for those rice hats! How could you turn down a Christmas short that takes creative cues from 1959's Santa Claus??

    Also, the girl happens to be holding the dog named Benji in her arms…

  15. Monkey Doodle (1933, animated)

    Before animation involved plot or artistry. Utterly baffling.

  16. Advertising: What it's Doing to your Life, with Blonde Ronald Reagan. AKA Anyone who hates ads is more evil than the commies.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q8cqk0uIuso

    This educational/indoctrination short is a blend of lectures and old advertisements that lays it on thick

    Advertising is equated with: more money for government services thru taxes, the development of new cake mixes, a means to keep Kruschev from burying us, and a way for married men to stare at women so they can feel better about loveless marriages.

    Last but not least, if you don't support advertising than a little kid with cerebral palsy will never be able to walk normally. Do you want that on your conscious?!?

  17. Siberia Invites You To Visit: 19??

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ET3P3UJXl00

    This short film tries to sell westerners on visiting Sibera. A place with an inland beach, villiages with museums, a college, the siberian tiger, Donald Duck intellectual property theft, and so much more.

    The short tries its hardest, but Siberia doesn't come across all that much more interesting than Milwaukee. Milwaukee if it were stretched to cover 5,000 miles, at that. The short even ends with a woman dancing to a generic lounge act while a bartender pours a giant bottle of booze.

    Siberia invites you: a magical land where the sea air is pungent, the summers are hot…

  20. Film Tactics (1945) A training film on how to use training films in a classroom

    This is so meta that you must riff this. It features long pauses, giant props, and boats almost crashing into each other.
