  1. SchoolHouse Rock Educational Shorts

    Schoolhouse Rock was a big part of my public school education. Basically every time it rained during recess, or a teacher just didn't want to deal with us, we'd be treated to an hour or so these educational animated shorts. These shorts felt outdated at the time and they definitely haven't aged gracefully. I'd love to watch you guys rip history, and my childhood education, a new one by taking on Schoolhouse Rock.

  5. Adventures of Captain Marvel (1941)

    I have really been enjoying the Batman and Robin serial you guys riffed, so I thought maybe you guys could do Captain Marvel before he got renamed Shazaam! From clips I have seen of this one, Captain Marvel is one ******* superhero as he is played by a weightlifter so we get to watch him throw actual people across the room! Better still, he does not play around, cross him and he'll throw you off a cliff or use a machine gun to gun you down as you try to flee! Would make for a totally awesome riff!

  6. Them!

    "Them!" is not a short! Why is that the only choice? I don't think you've riffed it before...

    It's a movie starring James Whitmore and Edmund Gwenn (Santa Clause from Miracle on 34th Street!)

  8. Tea Making Tips (BBC, 1941)

    You can give it a watch on the official BFI YouTube channel here:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vnvYymrCn4g&t=16s

    I just feel you guys tend to do fantastic jobs riffing on instructional videos in general, and one as genteel and specific as this could result in some absolute laugh out loud moments!

  11. How It's Made

    Saw this in FB comments, not my idea but a really good one. The TV series How It's Made ran for years, full of short vinettes of how everyday items are constructed. The narration and pacing make it super riffable.

  13. Play Safe

    Before "Shake Hands with Danger" (1980) and even before "Last Clear Chance" (1959), there was "PLAY SAFE" (1936), from the same studio that brought you Betty Boop and Popeye.

    "PLAY SAFE" is the charming public-domain animated tale of a boy and his dog . . . as they navigate a hellscape of anthropomorphic demon trains who just want to warn the young fellow that it's dangerous to fall unconscious on the train tracks! All of this cautionary whimsy is set to a musical score that sounds like Minnie the Moocher's drunk uncle, Vinny.

    70s somber GM internal corporate film where Chevrolet takes a look at how it thought the foreign invaders, “The Bug” and the “Japanese Beetles” (Toyota and Datsun) could easily put the automaker out of business.

  16. video game promo videos

    back in the 90s and early 2000s, many new video games would get previewed with footage on a video tape most especially nintendo 64 since they refused to make a bunch of demo carts even if they did with pokemon stadium, mario party 3, the legend of zelda majora's mask, donkey kong 64 and jet force gemini. there's also playstation one promo videos made as well and of course sega. if you must riff sega vhs', dvds, laserdiscs and betamax's do the promo videos only. that means no anime or tv shows or movies based on the sega games. there's…

  17. Idea: The Random button for shorts!

    Okay I'm a long term Rifftrax member, and I have a huge collection of shorts and movies.

    However sometimes me and my friend want to watch a bunch of shorts and we can't decide!
    ( I mean usually we watch the rifftrax on Twitch when we can't decide, but sometimes we want a couple of shorts instead of a whole movie to watch)

    So what we want to ask you for is a "Pick me a short!" random button.
    And an option within that for: "only shorts I own" / "all shorts"

    That's all!
    I would love for this to…

  18. Lets Make a Sandwhich (1950)

    This is a four minute short that can work as an interstitial. It's a short about making an open-faced tuna sandwich. And it proudly makes use of a gas oven and of triumphant music.

  20. Playstation Underground Demo Discs

    In 1997, sony computer entertainment america launched a cd based magazine that doesn't make you read but makes you play called the playstation underground. the psone versions always spanned 2 discs which were great for playable demos, trailers, imports, behind the scenes featurettes, exclusive first class looks on upcoming games, cheat codes, bulletins, demonstrations on first party accessories, downloading save files, walkthroughs on best winning the game, special events and easter eggs. the ps2 version was just one dvd. it all ended in 2001 when they've decided to merge with the official us playstation magazine just as they've transitioned to…
