  1. 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.

    • 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.

        • Instant French

          In keeping with the wackiness of shorts like Phoebe, this gives us a look at the strangeness of 1960s Canada culture. Bilingualism, mistresses, corporate intrigue, black & white film, plus an animated logo to take on Coronet and ACI. What could go wrong?

          20+ minutes of pure madness to start your day right in our topsy turvy world today.

          • Trucks

            Trucks, a movie from 1997, it’s maximum overdrive’s basement dwelling stepchild. Even the radio controlled tonka trucks murders the mailman to get out of this movie. No real big name actors, but when a fire breaks out, every actor in the movie looks at the smoke and ask, what the **** is that? There’s even an inflatable axe wielding killer. How can you go wrong with redneck hating trucks? The TV seems to only come on when the reporter reminds everyone that there is no electricity and then fades back out to static.
            1. Trucks that don’t really seem to…

            • A Day at the Magic Kingdom and A Day at Epcot (1991)

              Magic Kingdom: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mwFkpZgYaOo

              Epcot: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOEnWRfPlZU

              Videos sold at the parks back in the early 90s that followed various families around. Presents lots of prime riffing fodder both from an early 90s kitch and promotional Disney standpoint.

                  • Big Boy (1954 educational film)

                    A terrible educational folksy short on steam engines. I mean truly terrible, it starts with the narrator insulting the lead's wife and talking about how normal him loving an engine is. This has Kevin Murphy written all over it

                    • Not without my handbag

                      It’s a very creepy claymation short (little over 10 mins) about a lady who dies but comes back as a zombie to get her purse. It features the devil, the dead lady, and her very young niece who now lives alone. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mIvQZm8K-yU

                      • Benji's Very Own Christmas Story

                        A man in Switzerland who claims to be St. Nicholas takes a girl through a door marked "Verboten" into Santa's workshop.
                        Here, we learn about Santa's changing roles in different countries via costume changes and a song or two. We also get to see the elf children (with discolored pointed putty on their noses) wearing politically-questionable cultural attire in an ironic effort toward unification. Watch out for those rice hats! How could you turn down a Christmas short that takes creative cues from 1959's Santa Claus??

                        Also, the girl happens to be holding the dog named Benji in her arms…

                        • Christopher Crumpet

                          A weird little UPA cartoon about a spoiled kid who turns into a chicken when he throws a temper tantrum. His dad even calls him "a real ****-a-doodle-do."

                          • Siberia Invites You To Visit: 19??

                            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ET3P3UJXl00

                            This short film tries to sell westerners on visiting Sibera. A place with an inland beach, villiages with museums, a college, the siberian tiger, Donald Duck intellectual property theft, and so much more.

                            The short tries its hardest, but Siberia doesn't come across all that much more interesting than Milwaukee. Milwaukee if it were stretched to cover 5,000 miles, at that. The short even ends with a woman dancing to a generic lounge act while a bartender pours a giant bottle of booze.

                            Siberia invites you: a magical land where the sea air is pungent, the summers are hot…

                                • 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.

                                  • Jerry Pulls the Strings

                                    A 1938 "short" film in which the grumpy owner of a coffee company refuses to let his daughter marry her sweetheart because he won't take a real job instead of playing with marionettes all day. The young man then wins him over by putting on a puppet show about the history and production of coffee. Features classic 1930s-era stereotypes and perhaps the creepiest goat puppet ever to grace the screen.

                                    Can currently be seen on Amazon Prime in the "Puppet Movies" compilation.

                                        • Am I Normal

                                          This is a weird film from the late 1970s about a boy who is growing up . He asks questions of any and all people about going through puberty . It is rife for riffing !!
