  2. Raggedy Ann and Andy (1941)

    This Fleischer cartoon gives "Fun in Balloonland" a run for its money in the sheer insanity department. There's a character with a pair of scissors for a head, and Ann and Andy are SEWN TOGETHER at the end.

  3. 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…

  7. Helping Johnny Remember

    A group of children assemble a cardboard city within what appears to be a dark, formless void of a room. But where's Johnny? And why won't the children play with him? Could it be because Johnny looks to be one incident involving frogs and firecrackers away from venturing down the career path of serial killer with a one paragraph entry in that true crime encyclopedia your weird uncle keeps in his bathroom?

  9. Are You Listening

    A horrifying giant mouth teaches horrifying giant ears about the importance of listening to directions. There's also weird superfluous footage of animals in a zoo, because why not?

  12. 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…

  14. Catweazle

    I'm an American/Dutch dual citizen, living in Holland for ten years and the US west coast for fifty years before that.

    My Dutch husband called one of our kitties "Catweazle" this evening, and I asked him what on earth he was talking about. It turns out that "Catweazle" was a British-made children's show from the early '70s that he watched on TV as a small child.

    I watched Season 1, Episode 1 of "Catweazle" (oh, I never get tired of typing that name!) on YouTube, and it was fifteen minutes of riff-worthy delight.

    I had never heard of this show…

  15. 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.

  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?!?

  18. 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.

  19. Greenwich Village

    15 min short shown on TCM Sept 11 at 5:45am EDT. Early 70s in all its fashion glory, extolling the charms of quaint Greenwich Village, a suburban oasis in the big city (not the way I remember it in the 70s). It takes some doing but I THINK I finally identified it as promoting cotton as a fabric. I'm not making that up.

  20. Safety belt for Susie 1963

    This is an excellent safety film for seatbelts. The cute little girl is now a 60-year-old beautiful lady who is the wife of a friend of mine. Even without riffing the short is hilarious. The film is posted on YouTube!
