  1. Basic Typing Methods

    I found a video on YouTube called "Basic Typing Methods". It was produced by the Navy in 1943 as a brief lesson in basic typing (hence the title).
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FCpZ3CP7IAs&t=1609s
    Here are my reasons: 1) I don't think the woman smiles. Ever. Even though she's won global awards for her typing, apparently. 2) Any short produced by the military in the 1940's could use a good riffing. 3) Nobody does a better job of riffing shorts than you guys.

  2. "... so I took it!"

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PUIwF36NTCI

    This public domain short from 1975, produced by Sid Davis for Motorola (whose logo takes on a seizure-inducing calling card), tells the story of a preteen girl who is taken by the allure of shoplifting by her best friend Glenda. Generic 1970s music that sounds like it's trying to imitate an Italian song, sub-par acting from child actors, and the most unidentifiable objects taken from the apparent local K-mart are among the noticeable elements in this Sid Davis short.

  3. From Chrysler: How to Go Places - 1954

    This is wonderfully campy short
    It has perfect gaps in narration for riff-talking
    The old fashioned ideas contrasted to todays travel would be funny

    This would fit in perfectly with all the other shorts Rifftrax has riffed. :)

    You can find it on youtube https://youtu.be/ZnAiyAMefC4

  5. Do Easy

    Do Easy - "Its a way of Do-ing" ... this is just begging to be riffed. Great faces, tons of bad examples, including an example of how to zip up your pants, a guy tossing sticks while smoking, stubbing toes ... I can't believe I found this.

    Here is a link to the video on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eoOUBETTyMI

    as exciting as it should be- also there's a clock that's a real See You Next Thursday- ;) I enjoyed it and I hope you guys and gals take a gander at it!

  11. And Then It Happened

    70's bus safety short, wherein all the kids are dicking around on the bus to varying degrees. Features live animals, a switchblade, and kids flying around like socks in the dryer. I didn't even ride the bus and I think it traumatized me. (https://youtu.be/dmyizLWUxtM) I remember it differently, but still.

  14. Boy Meets Dog

    Boy Meets Dog is a short cartoon released by Castle Films. It details a father mistreating his son, and dog, until having a dream that sets him straight. The dream is about how going to college has ruined him, and how Bristol-Myers Co toothpaste will solve all your woes!

    It's an insane fever-dream, and I need Rifftrax to share in the insanity.

  18. Otis (Episode One) [Interactive Movie]

    There is an short movie here: https://www.nukhu.com/otis/ but with a twist: there are three character perspectives/narratives and you can switch the perspective of one of three people on the fly with the A, S, and D keys. I think this would make a great experiment for Rifftrax by splitting Mike, Kevin and Bill into the three character perspectives to riff each accordingly, maybe via a plug-in or a deal with the owner of the movie(s) (BTW, I spoke to the director/manager of the movie and he's really keen on the idea of Rifftrax riffing on them).

    The movie is not…

  19. Thought for Food

    https://youtu.be/ZrOh2RYP19o

    A 1930's ish? 40's? Kroger documentary on how they ensure quality. The link above appears to not be complete, but if you like laboratory drones measuring peach juice, after a morning family squabble, it's for you.

  20. Sea Spiders [1932]

    Riff this short from 1932 ... a user on imdb says "We visit Tahiti, where small two-person boats are called sea spiders. Nature's bounty is everywhere: fish easy to spear, fruit ripe for gathering, and coconuts waiting for export. We watch the copra harvest. A child dances. Men dive for octopus. One stays down too long and must be rescued. Another's leg is grabbed by a huge clam, and he summons help with a rope tied to a sea spider where a friend sits. Calm restored, the sun sets on paradise."

    see it @ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yjEb2b_pcQA
