Post by: TrentTroop on July 11, 2013, 06:38:10 PM
Rangoon Rifflet: Doozy Bots (US SD Gundam) Promo! (http://isleofrangoon.com/?p=369)

Fun Fact: Gundam almost came to the US in 1991.
Less Fun Fact: If it had, it would have been this.

Join Starchibald and Sunny Jim as they riff the promo for Doozy Bots, the kid-laiden early-90s-tastic import of the SD Gundam concept. If you're really into surfer talk, tiny robots and innumerable kid sidekicks, then prepare to lament this series' failure to launch.

Everyone else, prepare to be grateful with... the DOOZY BOTS!

Rangoon Riffs: Don't Touch! (http://isleofrangoon.com/?p=383)

Combovers, explosives and a kickin' soundtrack. That's pretty much the 1970s, right?

We're back in the groove with this funky little short from the '70s! And by "funky" we mean "it stinks". Learn all about the dangers of spontaneous combustibles generation and tragic hairstyles in "Don't Touch!"

Am I allowed to reply here? Really like the explosives short. Now I know what to do when they spontaneously materialize in my garage. Keep up the great work!

Rangoon Rifflet: Robocop 2014! (http://blip.tv/isleofrangoon/rangoon-rifflet-robocop-2014-trailer-6641066)

Murdered, rebuilt, stripped of humanity, forced to perform at the whim of a mega-corporation... that's what the original 'Robocop' story went through. Murphy got it pretty rough too

Join Sunny Jim and Starchibald as they give the trailer to Robocop's 2014 remake the riffing it so richly deserves.

Rangoon Rifflet: Day Without Numbers! (http://blip.tv/isleofrangoon/rangoon-rifflets-day-without-numbers-6670347)

Stupid numbers. What did they ever do for us? Apparently keep another demonic hellsprite at bay. Bad film cuts, needle-in-aer voiceovers and a dullard even by 1950s standards await you in "Day Without Numbers".

It's a Halloween miracle as Obscurus Lupa trick-or-treats her way to the Isle of Rangoon and she's brought a 1970's Educational Film about dental hygiene with her! Don't worry about Starchibald and Sunny Jim, they more or less brought this on themselves.

Necco wafers, haunted mansions, proper brushing technique and Caesar Romero await in... THE HAUNTED MOUTH!

This may be the "The Room" for... well, for the same generation as "The Room" was, but... look, you get the idea. Holy wow.

Sunny Jim and Starchibald hack into the outright fascinating trailer for "Fateful Findings", a movie sure to end up the subject of many a reviewerverse episode.

Fixed.
And the riff was good. Prefer the longer ones, just because then we get the puppet segments, but these "rifflets" are a nice snack. Like riff Combos.

[size=200]Rangoon Rifflet: Sugar Bear in Head Over Heels! (http://isleofrangoon.com/?p=438)[/size]

Ahh, Sugar Bear. His sonorous tones and sweet, crispy cereal helped us all forget that he was a psychotic murder-beast who heeded no law but his own. Sunny Jim and Starchibald bear witness to one of his unstoppable rampages in this pre-regulation short cartoon, "Head Over Heels"!

Rangoon Riffs: Adventure in Telezonia! (http://blip.tv/isleofrangoon/rangoon-riffs-adventure-in-telezonia-6795374)

Sunny Jim and Starch face the return of the Mysterious Malefactor!

After months of slacking, the Malefactor is back and he has a disturbing marionette-filled short all about the joys and miseries of telephone operation for the Rangoons. He's out to make up for lost time but an even more powerful force has its claws in his would-be victims: Starbound!*

Take a trip to the distant past, when telephones had dials, busy signals and sufficient mass to fell a mature bison with a single blow in... Adventure in Telezonia!

*This video also doubles as a review of the Starbound Beta.

Rangoon Rifflets: The Cautious Twins (http://blip.tv/isleofrangoon/rangoon-rifflets-the-cautious-twins-6826010)

Even a good message can be told poorly. Try and tell an important message with ear-bleeding calliope "music", clunky forced rhyming and animation that makes "Deputy Dawg" look like "Akira", and you've got a disaster even before people get to the horrific world you're setting up. There's more creeps on the streets in this short than in "Hobo With A Shotgun".

So just because "The Cautious Twins" has good advice at its core... really, what the hell, short?

Sunny Jim's latest hair-brained scheme has landed the Rangoons face-to-face with Diamanda Hagan, and has landed them both face-to-mask with the Omega! Will bonding over a civil defense short lead to a stronger, more iron-fisted rule for the Isle or will Sunny Jim wind up a fashionable coat?

Safety-y the Safety Sprite survived his last encounter with the Rangoons and is out for revenge, and he's brought a host of his Object-Lesson-Spite pals with him to do it. His secret weapon? Soapy the Germ Fighter, a pantaloons-clad six foot tall cowboy soap that appears in the bedrooms of sleeping children. For reasons of cleanliness.

Scrub up with Starchibald, Sunny Jim and guest voices Linkara, Obscurus Lupa, Scott Summerton and a surprise mystery voice for... Soapy the Germ Fighter!

It's been a while since we've taken a dull, plodding wander through the inner workings of automobiles from the black & white era. So let's do that! And this one's even got a warbly, odd-pausy disembodied voice to drag us along! Fun, right?

It's a double feature! If you want to just watch both in one sitting, choose the Pan Trailer and just let it auto-roll to the second video!


Rangoon Rifflets: Pan (http://blip.tv/isleofrangoon/rangoon-rifflets-pan-7148795)

By Patreon request!

Surely a classic series of stories such as Peter Pan NEEDS to have its origins strewn out across the table like so many chicken entrails, right? We absolutely must know the origin of this classic character!

What's that? J.M. Barrie already covered that by saying he ran away from home as an infant? Pfft, what does HE know? Let's slap together a destiny plot, can never have too many of those! Oh, and lose that Tinker-whatever character. I mean, who even likes her, right?

Sunny Jim and Starchibald never saw this coming. And they wish they still hadn't.
