  1. MGM's Peace on Earth

    This was the darkest cartoon I have ever seen. It was created in 1939 and trying to promote peace but literally showed the last two men on earth killing each other. Mind you, this was a story being told by a grandfather rodent to his little grandchildren as a bedtime story. He leaves at the end. I assume to go to "Cafe de Nuts" (which is literally in the new "Peaceville" village) to enjoy his evening. It was extraordinarily humorous without any riffing. I am 100% certain this would become an instant Rifftrax classic.

  2. Semi-Consious: Driving in the Real World

    We watched this for driver's ed. It is excessively musical and poorly acted, with random animated scenes. Need I say more?

  3. Shoplifter (1975)

    A short film made for the purpose of educating retail business owners and staff about shoplifting, shoplifters, and how to spot their myriad of techniques.

    It depicts multiple women shoplifting items by holding them between their legs or stuffing them in their underwear.

    The film also features a middle-aged man lurking in a grocery store air vent using binoculars with the supposed intent of theft prevention.

    What more can I say?

    A fair copy is available on YouTube to browse.

    The Naked Witch 1961 The narration of the prologue (done by Gary Owens) reminded me of The Curse of Bigfoot with a touch of The Dead Talk Back. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0054111/

  5. Organ Grinder with Monkey Documentary short 1955

    https://youtu.be/Xh2nLljpDY4 organ grinder short from 1955!

    It's just perfect!
    It's got great people to make fun of!
    There are nice gaps in narration to fill with wit.
    It's interesting AF.
    The monkey is truly cute.

  6. Round and Round

    This promotional short is dopey with really clunky stop-motion. Since the site seems to have been on a bad stop-motion binge the last several months I figured I'd suggest this again.

  7. Crack That Tank

    Have you ever wondered how to take out a tank from the World War II era? Do you have a dame in Brooklyn? Do you refer to setting other people ablaze with Molotov Cocktails as "buying them a drink"?

    Then brother, this short is for you!

    Marvel at the absolute awkwardness of an actor pretending to be... I don't know, maybe a mafioso that got drafted? He certainly talks more like someone from Goodfellas than Saving Private Ryan. Perhaps "swagger" is also a requirement for cracking open a tank.

    Except no tanks actually get cracked open in this short. But…

  8. Meat and Romance (1940)

    What do you get when you combine "Three Magic Words", "With an All-Star Cast", "Cooking Terms and What They Mean", and "Carving Magic"? You get "Meat and Romance", the tender tale of yet another newlywed wife who never learned to cook (didn't any school offer home economics back then?). Fortunately for her, her sister- and father-in-law show up (unannounced), and sis is a "famous home economist" (which is pounded into our brains more times than humanly necessary), and she takes our heroine to the butcher shop for a long lecture on different cuts of meat, then back to the kitchen…

  9. 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…

  10. Get Street Smart: A Kid's Guide To Stranger Dangers (1995)

    I had to watch this in grade-school and everyone I knew absolutely hated it.

    It's all about an ugly orange alien named Corny who is dumb as dirt. He eats live goldfish for breakfast and has a time-traveling belt. He keeps doing dumb things with strangers throughout the day and gets saved by his time-traveling but eventually he either forgets it or it breaks. Cue a crisis.

    I've since learned that there were also other Corny videos but thankfully the universe wasn't cruel enough to show them to me.

  11. 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

  12. Are Drugs the Answer?

    an 18 minute short from around the 70s.
    A Teacher who was one of Timothy Leary's disciples (So this short claims) is talking to students (who have expressions ranging from dazed to zoned out on drugs or just plain empty on brains) about drugs.
    It's PERFECT riff-fodder for you!!

  13. Lil' Dan'l Boom

    An unsold cartoon pilot from Sam Singer, who has been dubbed the "Ed Wood of animation". Lots of background pans with no animation, cycles, and overall bad pacing.

  14. Why Study Home Economics? (1955)

    Again from Young America, the companion piece to MST3K's "Why Study Industrial Arts?" Just as in that film, a high schooler consults with the home ec teacher, who seems to be convincing herself more than the audience of the need for her classes. You have to love the 50's sentiment of the high school girl who is convinced that she's going to be a "homemaker all her life," and that her first home may be (gasp) a TRAILER (!!!) And I love the unexplained southern accent that the girl's sister speaks with (and what is up with her…

  15. A Day in the Life of a Kitchen

    A promotional short for Frigidaire appliances from 1965 that reminds you that it's "the space age" by beating you over the head with that fact as often as they can. The average American family (father, son, daughter, and concrete-hairdo-ed mother) have breakfast at their "space age" kitchen dinette (that guarantees no one in the family need look at anyone else in the family). Later, the son has some friends over to do a dance called the "walk in space" (with the girls wearing glitter-covered space helmets assuring flashbacks to "Moon Zero Two"). And speaking of dancing, check out Mom's dance…

  17. Rage On The Asphalt

    I am currently taking Driver's Ed classes, and this is one of the required videos for one of the sections. I think it would be pretty funny if this one was riffed. It reminds me of a really crappy Twilight Zone episode about road rage.

  18. Doctor Who: Dimensions in Time

    This is bad. Really bad. It was supposed to be the 30th anniversary special but it’s almost as bad as the Star Wars Holiday Special. You won’t be able to actually release the video of it because my understanding is that all of the actors made it for free on the condition that it never be released commercially, but you could do a Just a Riff for people to listen to while watching it on YouTube.

  19. Boys Beware

    I wonder when you will Riff Boys beware. I saw that you covered a fair amount of shorts so I wondered if you'd cover this infamous short. I wonder if the reason it didn't get covered is its controversial subject matter ( Equating homosexuality with pedophilia). Though I would wonder if you'd blast it for it's attitude. I would slam the thing for its bigoted, homophobic views.

  20. The Safe Side

    A half hour, stranger danger safety documentary starring your friendly neighborhood superhero: Safe Side Super Chick. Watch as she fantasizes about a roller disco gorilla dressed as Greg Brady as Johnny Bravo coming to her door. Discover her unique superpowers like: changing the color of her outfit from green to yellow to red based on how dangerous a situation may or may not be (it's not a precise science sometimes it's just a mailman with a live otter in a crate), turn her face red and shoot steam out of her ears, or create sound effects with her mind. Can…
