  1. 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.

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 These shorts felt outdated at the time and they definitely haven't aged gracefully.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

  5. 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…

  6. Dream Bunny in Dreamland

    An absolute fever dream of a rejected TV pilot. Creepy dolls, bad acting, weird costumes, it's no wonder it failed

  9. 2 Souls

    My Daughter had to do a short film for her school project. Being fans of MST3k and Rifftrax she asked if I could request a riffing. I said what the heck so here is the request.
    2 Souls is about a girl named Heaven. Heaven is has a curse. She has another side to her. A demon side. The demon is named Nevaeh. Nobody except for Heaven can see Nevaeh. Heaven is trying to control with Nevaeh. Little does Heaven know that someone is always watching her. The one who gave her the curse.

  10. 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…

  11. Food and Magic

    https://archive.org/details/FoodAndMagic

    A short featuring the magic of film editing, with the only carnival barker ever to wear a natty business suit, about the importance of food conservation in WWII. Features questionable facts, magic that isn't, lots of little vignettes, and an America where no one is concerned when a bloody, filthy soldier turns up for dinner.

  13. Introducing 🇮🇸Iceland [The Atlantic Community Series - NATO Documentaries, 1955]

    Nato history channel as a list full of these for different countries, all utterly ripe for riffing. They all have that way-too-serious narration that 50's documentaries and shorts have that would make it absolutely perfect.
    They are all free to watch on youtube as well!
    Here's the one on Iceland: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLXVOXd7TU2-YixUWqUfWQw

  15. Running For Empties (1988)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=utbT3IL3P2Y

    This is a 9 minute short from New Zealand about two schoolboys and a man in short shorts who deliver glass bottles of milk.

    It is wholesome, sincere, and grounded, yet it has several over the top moments. Like an animation of the van turning into a spaceship. Or a cat knocking a bottle off a wall.

    It ends on a note that soon people will be able to buy milk from grocery stores, leaving the kids (and the viewer) as witnesses to the end of an era.

  16. Mannix

    The MST3K crew often made references to "Mannix," one of my all-time favorite shows. Why not do a riff on an episode of that classic series? Season 1 had Mannix working for a hi-tek detective agency. Mannix's specialty was insubordination. Season 2 onward he was on his own, with a regular stable of frenemy lieutenants, and oddly colored sportjackets.

    Santa is a magical girl in this two-episode anime/OVA for Christmas later this year? Yep. There's an English dub. And, the protagonist is also named Santa. Six months' worth of story arcs in two short episodes.
