Aesop’s Fables. These stories, with their universal morals, have inspired us all. Tales such as “The Fox and the Grapes”, “The Lion and the Mouse” and “The Two Cat/Bear things that go to the North Pole and one dies but comes back to life and they see a polar bear.”

Not familiar with the last one you say? Perhaps you remember it by its more common name Frozen Frolics. No? We’re pretty sure it’s one of Aesop’s Fables, it says so right on the title screen...

Anyhow, Frozen Frolics answers that eternal question, “What was it like when people took acid before color had been invented?” The answer? Lots of black and white cartoon animals that sort of bob up and down repeatedly while a crazed mixture of consequence free violence happens all around them. Many credit it as the inspiration for The Jerry Springer Show.

Mike, Kevin and Bill learned a very important moral during their riffing of Frozen Frolics: cured meats are delicious.

Any issues with the RiffTrax main page should be directed to support@rifftrax.com Attempts to engage with me directly about such matters will result in ridicule.

I usually don't buy individual shorts but I thoroughly enjoyed this. There's a whole world of these bizarre pre-Disney animated shorts, and I would love if MKB pursued more of these. Words cannot convey how delighted I would be if they tackled Monkey Doodle!

Is there an IPAD version of this? MY Files only show iPOD.

Of the three recent studio version shorts from the last two live shows, this was easily the best. I was a little disappointed that the other two were basically unchanged from their live versions.

And yeah, I was wondering about the lack of a large MP4 version too.
