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 These shorts felt outdated at the time and they definitely haven't aged gracefully.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

  4. 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…

  6. 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.

  7. Walt Disney The story of Menstruation

    Walt Disney and the story of Menstruation. This is 70 years old now. Might be a good one to riff. Thanks

  8. 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

  9. 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!

  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.

  12. "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.

  13. Dangerously Close (1986)

    This is not only from Cannon and not only from Albert Pyun, it's also a boring ass film with bland character with no character development who only stand around like they in a fashion model commercial. A waste of people who have or had talent before making this dullfest of a trainwreck.

  14. 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."

  15. Garlic is as Good as Ten Mothers

    It's 51 minute foodie documentary from 1980 (and it looks it too).

    It's a love story to garlic (which as depicted wasn't really a big trend in the US back in the 1970s and earlier if you believe the talking heads).

    One talking head mentions that he believes that vampires are real. Werner Herzog also makes a cameo.

    Lots of dialogueless food prep providing plenty of space for riffing.

  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.
