If Only Moose Baby Could Be On Safety Island... 18 Sep 2010
By McGillicutty - Published on Amazon.com
Nearly two hours of fine, family entertainment await with this Rifftrax release, "Shorts-A-Poppin".

Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy, & Bill Corbett of Mystery Science Theater 3000 fame rip their way through nine insane shorts beginning with the sad death, embarressment, and finally rebirth of a local safety nut in the overlong epic "The Case of Tommy Tucker". Admittedly, this short is one of my favorites as the riffing is excellent over a story that desperately tries to convince you that a 12 year old is the most important person in the county.

Years before America wondered just how he bagged such a hot wife in "Bewitched", Dick York learns in "Shy Guy" that to overcome shyness, one must conform. Three annoying youths represent a town's most dangerous criminal element in "What About Youth Delinquency?"...well, what about it?

"You and Your Family" promotes discussion over whether lying to you Dad isn't such a bad idea. "Cork-Crashes and Curiosities" is a real winner, a confusing short about some kind of grand prix style race in Ireland with a not-so-coherent narrator (it's Ireland, what should I expect?). "Molly Grows Up" continues the "youth in confusion" theme and "The Bill of Rights in Action" proves that idiots standing on a corner screaming about Hitler get way too much attention.

The highlight of the DVD for me is the wonderfully insane "The Tale of Moose Baby" which follows the first year of a baby Moose. Bill Corbett's riff over a small bird is one for the ages...tweet. And we end with the guy who played Mayberry's favorite town drunk "Otis" in a somewhat less drunk version in "Following Instruction Game" in which attention deficit disorder in children can be cured by paying attention...assuming you have no pencil or paper to write down what Mommy tells you to do.

The only extra is an interesting one as we have "alternate riffing" of the first five minutes of "The Case of Tommy Tucker". Too bad the "Menu music" is of the generic kind rather than a song from the Rifftrax crew that were in previous releases.

For Rifftrax fans, this one is a must for your collection. Get it today!

Rifftrax Shorts-A-Poppin' 4 Mar 2011
By Jorge A. Zarco - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
My siblings and I grew up watching Mystery Science Theater 3000. Rifftrax is at least one spin-off of the show on DVD and the internet. This DVD felt like hanging out with old friends. Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett poke fun of nine cheesy short films! The only extras are a chapter menu and an alternate "riff track" for The Case of Tommy Tucker. Bill Corbett is right! The school teacher in the Tommy Tucker short IS checking out the hunky traffic officer! The Rifftrax Crew also poke fun of missing frames and missing credits! A young Dick York acts in a short called Shy Guy. This low priced Rifftrax DVD is a good alternative for the more expensive Mystery Science Theater 3000 boxsets.

Another Set Of Shorts Featuring Unnaturally Safe Children, Naturally Annoying Children, And A Moose Baby 6 Jun 2011
By Robert I. Hedges - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
"Shorts-a-Poppin'" is another good collection of educational shorts from our friends at RiffTrax, Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett. The collection isn't as strong as some of the other sets, but there are some real standouts, too. There are guest stars this time: Hal Smith, who you may know better as Otis Campbell, Mayberry's town drunk, helps educate annoying children that the key to organization and cure for forgetfulness is paying attention. (Pause for reflection.) I guess that was before they invented Ritalin. Dick York also puts in a guest appearance reflecting on serial bashfulness in "Shy Guy," which is frankly, one of the most boring shorts I have ever seen. In the same vein, "Molly Grows Up" furthers the theme of pubescent angst with predictably tedious results.

"The Case of Tommy Tucker" (which even features an alternate riffing track) is a ponderously heavy children's safety film that is a classic of the genre, if a bit lengthy. The least coherent short in this collection, and one of my favorites is "Cork - Crashes and Curiosities," which is a tale of Irish road racing as explained by a very confusing narrator. Watch it twice to see if you can find the point! By far, though, my favorite of the collection is "The Tale of Moose Baby," which is exactly what you'd expect. It follows a baby moose's adventures to great comedic effect, and some of the riffing, particularly from Bill Corbett, is priceless.

This is another solid collection of shorts from RiffTrax, and anyone who enjoys RiffTrax, MST3K, Cinematic Titanic, or simply is fascinated with charmingly dated and peculiar shorts from yesteryear will like this set of ill-conceived wonders.
A laugh riot 10 May 2014
By Nick Pusloskie - Published on Amazon.com

These guys do not fail to deliver some downright snarky commentary. Funny and more geared towards an older viewer - but not so bad that the kids can't watch. Standouts on this DVD - The Case of Tommy Tucker. Just fall on the floor funny. And Molly Grows Up is one that you HAVE to see to believe. Remember when they divided the boys and girls up and each one watched a video? This must have been "that" movie the girls saw. Suffice to say that I have NEVER seen a woman so happy when "that time" comes around. The rest are very funny two - but to me, these are the ones that stood out.
5 star fun!! 22 Mar 2014
