  1. Powerful stuff

    Powerful stuff is a British Public Information Film that’s the “sequel” to ‘Play Safe’. I would love to see a riff of this!

  3. "Gung Ho" by Steve French

    It's an Australian take on "Tom and Jerry", with certain twists on the formula.

    1. The mouse only goes out because his wife is bickering about cheese.
    2. It's slapstick with a disabled cat.
    3. The ending is fairly harmonious with both bonding over a bottle of "*** catnip".

    The movie is distributed as part of the Kaboodle series by the Australian Children's Television Foundation. A copy of that segment can be found here:

  4. Jack Brooks: Monster slayer

    An Uber cheesy horror comedy that desperately calls for a Rifftrax commentary. You can’t go wrong with Robert Englund aka Freddy Krueger as the hapless, creepy guy as one of the main characters. Yet, somehow the film falls a bit short. Cmon guys put your mark on this beast!

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 These shorts felt outdated at the time and they definitely haven't aged gracefully.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

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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. Electrojuice

    In 1991, someone decided it would be a good idea to make an "educational film" about the dangers of electricity using a Beetlejuice knockoff as the villain (and kind of the teacher as well). This so-bad-it's-good short is roughly a half-hour and is ripe for Rifftrax treatment.

  13. Target...Austin, Texas (1960)

    The folks at Rifftrax haven't riffed a civil defense short in a while. This ultra-low budget one was filmed in Austin, Texas for a local TV station. In spite of the grim subject matter, there's enough weirdness to riff over, like the extremely cramped fallout shelter in one family's home, the secretary who freaks out during the bombing (and turns into an extra from CARNIVAL OF SOULS), and (most especially) the idiot who disobeys all orders, and essentially winds up as compost. The full short can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bCQePqXEwwA .

  14. My Santa (2005- ) AKA Itsudatte my Santa

    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.

  15. 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.

  18. 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.

  20. 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
