  3. Space 1999

    This cheesy 70's Star Trek ripoff is hilarious. It really has it coming!

  4. Santa Claus and the Fairy Snow Queen

    This is a "short" although it’s longer than most, too long actually. The reasons are:
    1) "Snoopy" is very reminiscent of Mr. B Natural
    2) The Snow Queen wants Santa’s schwanstucker or something I couldn’t quite understand her.
    3) The Jack in the Box will cause you to wish him dead in some horrible way.

  6. Miss Manners on Weddings

    This is on YouTube and it is amazing. 80's hair, bad acting, and smarmy, uptight Miss Manners presides over it all, "helping" two clueless, selfish horrible people and their selfish, horrible families plan a wedding. The first 2 minutes also include an actor (in what he must've thought was his big break) as a waiter, reciting the ENTIRE special of the day, down to the parsley flakes on the baked potato.
    This was MADE for Bridget and Mary Jo. Check it out: https://youtu.be/QEJKwagADyQ

  7. Get High On Yourself

    https://dangerousminds.net/comments/gethighonyourselfrobertevanscokebustcommunityservicemegaturdtv

    why it should be chosen:
    1. Robert Evans on probation for cocaine use, what does he do? Why an anti-drug special!
    2. Where else can you find Leif Garrett, Carol Burnett, Bob Hope, and Paul Newman?
    3. The children touching Fonzie's hair.

  9. Music Videos

    ok, hear me out here. Do you guys remember popup videos? they were amazing, and when music television stations started producing **** reality tv, all of the good stuff died. Anyway, I think it would be amazing if you did a sort of "pop-up" style video, but just riff'd it instead. have some popup "facts" and do what you do best, and tear it a new one. I think this would be an amazing place to start.

  10. It’s Potty time

    It’s an old Duke University video..its has to be seen to be believed. True nightmare fuel. Fantastically you can find it on amazon. It would make an epic riff.

  11. Safety belt for Susie 1963

    This is an excellent safety film for seatbelts. The cute little girl is now a 60-year-old beautiful lady who is the wife of a friend of mine. Even without riffing the short is hilarious. The film is posted on YouTube!

  12. Halloween Safety (Second Edition)

    Bridget and Mary Jo's riff of the first edition was hilarious, I'd love to see them take on this second, 80s version! Featuring a talking jack o'lantern who LOVES having his insides scooped out but lives in fear of being stepped on. https://vimeo.com/6942726

  13. My hero academia

    It’s anime series every anime nerd is obsessed with and I just can’t sit through it. Please help me cope with this series. Even if it’s just one episode.

  15. Santa Claus' Punch and Judy

    Castle Films presents "Santa Claus' Punch and Judy." This short has all the Christmas themes; violence, racism, cruelty to animals, and an alligator attack. What's not to love about it?

    Really, I think there is a lot to riff on in this one.

  16. Better Use of Leisure Time (1950)

    [video type="youtube"]BHgncP5vc[/video]

    "Better Use of Leisure Time" is a short about how people today (1950's) have never had it so good. So if a teen has free time and they aren't doing some form of learning or labor then they're wasting their present and their future!

    Parts of it feel prime for ripping while other parts feel like an unattainable punch to the gut. E.g., a house and a family on a single-income 40-hour a week job that allows the breadwinner time to cut out early for family and hobbies.

  17. Santo gold

    I heard about this years ago and just remembered it. From the link below:

    "Santo Gold is without a doubt the most bizarre infomercial I’ve seen. This infomercial tries to do two very different tasks at the same time: sell a gold jewelry business opportunity and promote a “science-fiction space wrestling movie” called Blood Circus. Either one of these would be laughable enough on its own, but the combination of the two is downright unnerving."

  18. Schoolboy Father

    Rob Lowe plays a teenage father determined to beat the odds and keep his baby boy. Why should it be riffed?
    1. a young Rob Lowe
    2. the terrible writing
    3. boy fathers have rights, too.

  19. The Pleasure Seekers

    This Spanish take on Three Coins in a Fountain is awesome. Ann-Margret shimmies, headshakes, and laughingly cries thru her mascara in this one.

  20. More shorts like the Bill Baird marionettes...maybe just a show with short features instead of a whole movie

    I love those "short features" that you do before a full length movie. That short with the Bill Baird marionettes was hysterical. I would love to see a short with just short features.
