  2. 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 These shorts felt outdated at the time and they definitely haven't aged gracefully.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.

  3. Cartoon All Stars To the Rescue

    It aired April 21 st 1990. I remember all the kids excited about the greatest crossover in history. Muppet Babies and Winnie the Pooh, Garfield and Alf, Michaelangelo of the Mutant Turtles and Bugs Bunny, Huey Duey and Luey and Alvin, Simon and Theodore. For a thirty minute anti drug special that ended up being heavy handed and sobering instead of being fun. Funded by McDonald's, George Bush and even Joe Biden promoted the special. It definitely needs the crew of Rifftrax to give it the treatment to gently remind us of what happens when conglomerates and politicians force beloved…

  4. "Swingin' Six" ZIP Code Video

    4 good reasons (because I'm an overachiever) to riff this short from the 1960's about using ZIP codes, found at https://youtu.be/QIChoMEQ4Cs:

    1.This is an actual US government short. If you don't riff it, the terrorists win.

    1. Cavemen. Not sure what it has to do with the postal service, but cavemen. Occasionally in very short skirts (yes, still the men).

    2. To find out why not using ZIP codes will make your true love desert you.

    3. They rhyme 'question' and 'indigestion' in a song. Oh, did I mention it's a musical?

  6. Let's Make a Meal in 20 Minutes & Let's Make a Sandwich (1950)

    "Let's Make a Meal in 20 Minutes" AND "Let's Make a Sandwich" from our friends at Simmel-Meservey, makers of the MST3K favorite "A Date with Your Family." Speaking of which, both shorts star "Daughter" from that timeless classic (and the sandwich short also features "Mother"). Both show the viewer the fun that can go into the preparation of food, no matter how unappetizing the final result is. Each short is only about 4 minutes long, so pairing them would be a good idea. And they're both public domain, to boot! Let's Make a Sandwich: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xz4SYkwSxTM

  7. Mickey Mouse: Seat Belt Expert

    Co-produced by the infamous Coronet Films, this Disney live-action short teaches kids (and one negligent adult) the importance of wearing a seat belt. This short also makes liberal use of the following: the same Mickey Mouse costume you'd find at Disneyland; a little girl with the apparent power to absorb other people into her daydreams; a cameo by the protagonist of the classic short "Courtesy: A Good Egg-sample;" and, even some zoom-ins on our beloved mouse's crotch. This short just begs for a good riffing!

  8. The Finishing Line

    This is a seriously F***ed up British PSA about children playing on railroad tracks. This kid daydreams about holding his own Olympics on a train crossing. Dozens of children get killed. It's both horrifying and surreal.

  9. 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.

  14. "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.

  16. Let's Face It (1954 Federal Civil Defense Administration Short)

    Have you ever questioned the economic validity of building an entire city just to blow it up? Have you ever wanted to test the validity of building an entire city just to blow it up?

    The film that gave us the iconic stock footage of houses being blasted to smithereens and made us realize that the atomic bomb was more than just sending Indiana Jones helluva far in a refrigerator. Consider this for what would really happen to Bert the Turtle if he was in the vicinity of this force of radiation.

    The three reasons why I suggest this film…

  17. 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."

  18. Any old 80s fast-food training video you can get the rights to

    There's a lot of great cheesy 80s fast-food training videos out there, like for Wendy's and McDonald's. It's a riff goldmine.

  20. 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.
