Christmas is getting closer...
« on: September 07, 2006, 07:36:21 PM »
(If Hobby Lobby can put out their Christmas stuff, I can start this thread now. :^))

I love the idea of doing a horror flick for Halloween, but Christmas is right around the corner, I'm told.

Wouldn't it be cool to get like- a Holiday Special Multipack Rifftrax, with lots of classic Holiday Specials lovingly riffed?

They're all on DVD now. You could give us a nifty zip file with Rudolph, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, A Charlie Brown Christmas, Frosty The Snowman... Even if you can't find them on DVD, most of those are being aired in comercialless form on one cable network or another.

Anyone else think it'd be cool?

I've wanted to find a good animated movie to push.  Anyboyd seen Doogal?  Sounds truly wretched.

It's #55 on the IMDB Bottom 100:

But Charlie Brown Xmas could be great.  Hell, a Charlie Brown special Pack, with Thanksgiving, Xmas, Great Pumpkin and a lesser known one like Race For Your Life or Bon Voyage Charlie Brown could be awesome.

Robots is pretty bleh and highly riffable. :^) If we wanna go traditional animation, there's a lot of '80s Disney movies that kinda flopped and there've been a few movies pushed out by Hanna Barbara. There's the Tom and Jerry where they talk and they're friends, Yogi's Ark, The Scooby Doo movie where Shaggy's a warewolf...

Getting back on topic, though, Here Comes Santa Claus is probably the most poorly-acted, most riffable stop-motion Christmas special I've ever seen.
(Actual Dialogue, more or less.)
"Santa Claus, You're under arrest!"
"Not MEEEEE!!!!!"

Doogal was horrible. It was a butchered Americanized version of the UK's The Magic Roundabout. Funny thing is, after watching TMR, Doogal felt like someone had not ony been riffing on it, but had replaced the dialogue completely with riffing. But bad riffing. Ugh. :P

*(I have a five year old, in case anyone was wondering why I had watched Doogal in the first place. :P )

As my signature suggests, I would like to see It's A Wonderful Life riffed in time for xmas.  Not that its a bad movie, but I think there's plenty of chances for Mike to chime in (The angel in his PJ's, the drunks in the bar, the grumpy disabled villain, etc.)

What about Ernest Saves Christmas?  Or is it wrong to riff a dead guy?

"Its a Wonderful Life"

Might as well start at the top and work your way down...

plus the DVD is like $2.99 with a fillup at Texaco!
