  1. MST3K Shorts only!

    You guys already release most of your RiffTrax Live shorts separate from the shows.

    So it would be super awesome if you started releasing all the MST shorts separate from their movies! REALLY awesome!

    There are many shorts where I don't like the movie they're attached too, "Uncle Jim's Dairy Farm", "Circus on Ice", "Out of This World" and SO MUCH MORE!!

  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. North Korean Pocahantas (TV Series)

    Laser-eye shooting animals, terrible animation, time travel, and a hodge podge of historical revisionism.

  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!

  6. 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…

  7. Santo gold

    I heard about this years ago and just remembered it. From the link below:

    "Santo Gold is without a doubt the most bizarre infomercial I’ve seen. This infomercial tries to do two very different tasks at the same time: sell a gold jewelry business opportunity and promote a “science-fiction space wrestling movie” called Blood Circus. Either one of these would be laughable enough on its own, but the combination of the two is downright unnerving."

  9. 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:

  11. 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!

  13. hazards

    Hidden Hazards in Your Home - Narrated by William Shatner - I have a VHS tape dying to be riffed. It is a household safety video narrated by none other than the Man himself. I cannot view it because we don't have a tape player anymore, but I am more than willing to mail it to you for your use! Please let me know if interested! :)

  15. 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.

  16. 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

  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. 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

  20. 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…
