The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T.
The original Dr.Seuss Musical penned by the rhyming scribe himself and it's just as bizarre and random as you would expect. the antics of lunacy and surrealism are perfect material for Mike and the gang to play with.
This movie is the reason I was terrified to go to piano lessons as a kid until I realized A. My teacher was a way nicer gal than Dr. T, and B. He was dreaming the whole thing. Still took me about a month to feel comfortable with piano lessons after seeing this...
As a side note...this movie features a ten-year-old named Bart foiling the schemes of an urbane, cultured villain with the last name Terwilliger. Hmm...sound like any long-running prime-time cartoon series you know?

Watching this now, so ripe for the riffing. So much to go with
This was a favorite movie of mine as a kid. Even then I understood the cool/creepy vibe it had. Please consider doing this one.
Oh man- what can you say about this Seussical nightmare except that Dr. T is INSANITY personified, and nothing makes a kid want to play piano more than kidnapping his mom- that's how I learned Lol I've been waiting forever for this! If this isn't riffed, there is no 3rd dimension
Sweet Jesus yes. Every frame of this movie is more delightfully absurd and unexpected than the one before it.
