  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. Adventures of Captain Marvel (1941)

    I have really been enjoying the Batman and Robin serial you guys riffed, so I thought maybe you guys could do Captain Marvel before he got renamed Shazaam! From clips I have seen of this one, Captain Marvel is one ******* superhero as he is played by a weightlifter so we get to watch him throw actual people across the room! Better still, he does not play around, cross him and he'll throw you off a cliff or use a machine gun to gun you down as you try to flee! Would make for a totally awesome riff!

  7. Play Safe

    Before "Shake Hands with Danger" (1980) and even before "Last Clear Chance" (1959), there was "PLAY SAFE" (1936), from the same studio that brought you Betty Boop and Popeye.

    "PLAY SAFE" is the charming public-domain animated tale of a boy and his dog . . . as they navigate a hellscape of anthropomorphic demon trains who just want to warn the young fellow that it's dangerous to fall unconscious on the train tracks! All of this cautionary whimsy is set to a musical score that sounds like Minnie the Moocher's drunk uncle, Vinny.

  9. A Cranberry Christmas (2008)

    • It has characters named Cyrus Grape and Mister Whiskers.
    • Music is by Barry Manilow.
    • It's sponsored by Ocean Spray Cranberries and this fact is screamingly obvious.

  10. Malakapalakadoo, Skip Two

    This "educational" short may, in fact, be too strange to riff

  11. MST3k Shorts Compilation

    I don't suppose you guys could do a compilation of shorts of MST3k? Kind of like the VHS and DVDs that just featured them. My father loves watching those, but he burnt out the DVDs.

  14. Smith School of driving (ca. 1960)

    The "world famous" Smith School of driving is still active, so I doubt you could get permission, but the old-school driver's ed. films (somewhere from mid-'50s to late '60s I'd guess) are pretty damned funny, and ripe pickin's fer riffin'. Smith is a cantankerous pedant who likes to refer to trucks as "billboards" and admonishes drivers to "give the signal" (presumably their middle finger) at parked motorists as they pass. Nothing tops the combination of educational film cheese, with middle america values cheese, with ****** mid-century car cheese, with an over-determined and "five point system" taken all too seriously cheese,…

  15. no margin for error

    A GMP training video from 60's or 70's for pharmaceutical companies. They actually made us watch this when I started working for a company in 2011.

  16. The Wickedest Witch

    This NBC made for TV movie stars Rue McClanahan as the witch Avarissa, Paul Fusco's puppets (yes, the guy who did the show ALF), and has Burgess Meredith as the narrator. It'll be a quick riff (under 30 minutes), but a hilarious one.

  17. It's Wonderful Being a Girl

    Oh, this brings back a memory! In 5th grade, the girls got a note that they were going to the auditorium to see this film while we were stuck in class. As the Paul McCartney song "Girls' School" says, "they put the papers on the window"! I remember being jealous that the girls got their own movie.
    When I asked one of the girls what the movie was about, I got a very terse "none of your business"! This would make a great short to riff -- although it might be safer for Bridget and Mary Jo to do it!

  18. Barbie and the Rockers: Out of This World/Barbie and the Sensations

    Okay. This is a more of a blatant push to get people to watch Alison Pregler's YouTube channel. But since it's a two part set of shorts where Barbie travels to outerspace to a flower shaped space station and then accidentally travels back to the 1950s? I think Mary Jo Pehl and Bridget Nelson would work wonders on a perfect rifftrax commentary track.
