  1. 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

  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. 1999 house of tomorrow

    This short presented by the philco ford corporation gives a decidedly dark vision of a futuristic house in the year 1999ad where the computer is in charge of the entire household. It features mandatory exercise and body scans, and the home teaching program telling 8 yr old billy he flunked. It features a young Wink Martindale and is pure nightmare fuel.

  5. Caught Mapping.

    1940s movie about Cartography by Chevrolet. A "Jam Handy" production. I kid you not. That's the last slide.

    8 and one half minutes of too-fast animation, terrible road conditions, watching people drive around in 1940s Batman's car all to make maps that only have a passing connection to reality.

    Also, you can find it in its entirety here: https://www.planetizen.com/node/57278

  6. Speedy Cutover service

    The cheesy 70s music, the suspense from a heist movie...what is it? A bond film? No its the speedy cutover team, switching from old technology to new. Watch the action as the specially sharpened cutters slice through cables at breakneck pace. Watch the supervisor wipe sweat from his brow in suspence. Will they cut all the cables correctly? Will any emergency calls not be able to go through? Find out!

  7. Traveling vacations short

    This short from the 50s is about a man who ruins a ladies painting at the beach, then stalks her , accidentally destroys her fathers car and tows them in their travel trailer all over the country. The girl hates him the entire time. It’s done in that “ain’t it neat” 50s style. And it is ripe for destruction.

  8. Jack Brooks: Monster slayer

    An Uber cheesy horror comedy that desperately calls for a Rifftrax commentary. You can’t go wrong with Robert Englund aka Freddy Krueger as the hapless, creepy guy as one of the main characters. Yet, somehow the film falls a bit short. Cmon guys put your mark on this beast!

  9. 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.

  10. Powerful stuff

    Powerful stuff is a British Public Information Film that’s the “sequel” to ‘Play Safe’. I would love to see a riff of this!

  12. Electrojuice

    In 1991, someone decided it would be a good idea to make an "educational film" about the dangers of electricity using a Beetlejuice knockoff as the villain (and kind of the teacher as well). This so-bad-it's-good short is roughly a half-hour and is ripe for Rifftrax treatment.

  13. Lone Ranger Cartoon Shorts (Format Films, 1966)

    In 1966, Format Films released a series of cartoon shorts starring The Lone Ranger and Tonto. These were quite interesting, if unusual. You see, many of these seemed to have strong steampunk elements...obviously influenced by the then-contemporary The Wild Wild West. (There was even a semi-recurring villain who was a little person--Tiny Tom--lifted clean from TWWW's Dr. Loveless.) There were heat rays, human dynamos, mechanical monsters, portals to prehistoric times, lost dinosaur valleys...that kind of thing.

    So this is a rather unusual take on the Lone Ranger mythos. (A later Filmation cartoon series, from 1980, was far more realistic, often…

  14. The Spirit of Christmas (1953, short from Bell Telephone)

    This half-hour short was produced by Bell Telephone for the Philadelphia area (near me, as it turns out--our local PBS affiliate WHYY usually runs it even today). Except for a bit of live-action, it is performed mostly by marionettes.

    The first half of this half-hour short (after an intro by some Bell executives, and a short prologue showing Clement Clarke Moore getting the inspiration for his new poem) is a dramatization of "A Visit From St. Nicholas", or, as we know it, "Twas The Night Before Christmas." This does have its charming moments--the miniature sets are quite lovely and detailed--but…

  19. Pass the Line (1954)

    This one might even be too big a challenge for our favorite riffers. This one is a failed pilot for a TV game show, and just watching it, you'll understand why it was never picked up. An embarrassed looking Jonathan Winters, along with three other "celebrities" you've never heard of, have to draw a picture as described to them. No cash prizes, no trips to Cancun, no excitement, no nothing. Available at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QBLatevoFvE

  20. Now About Lamb (1965)

    Another cooking short for the ladies. Shows the viewer the many ways to cook lamb, conveniently ignoring the fact that lamb is not the tastiest meat in the world. Lots of places during the narration for riffs to be inserted. Animated sequences that make CLUTCH CARGO look like a Disney film. And dig the color-coordinated, Rose Marie-style hairbow that the woman in the short insists on wearing! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KAP0mtR4VuY
