''[[MrBNatural Mr. B Natural]]'' is an advertising short about a mysterious PeterPan-esque pixie who helps Buzz, a lonely young kid, learn how to make friends and express himself through music (and hence, genuine Conn[[TradeSnark ]][[note]]Now Conn-Selmer, Inc.[[/note]] instruments).

For the ''MysteryScienceTheater3000'' version, please go to the [[Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000S03E19WarOfTheColossalBeast episode recap page]]. {{Rifftrax}} also did its own commentary using a complete, unblemished copy of the short; the ''[[MysteryScienceTheater3000 MST3K]]'' version had broken splices.

----
!!!This short provides examples of:
* AmbiguousGender: Possibly what they were shooting for with Mr. B, given that he's the living incarnation of music itself.
* AmbiguouslyGay: Mr. B Natural would be CampGay if it was even clear he's really a ''male''.
* AnthropomorphicPersonification
* {{Bifauxnen}}: Mr. B.
* CuteButCacophonic: Mr. B.
* EnterStageWindow: In the uncut short, Mr. B, after visiting Buzz for the first time, leaves his room by jumping head first out of his bedroom window.
* {{Expy}}: {{Rifftrax}} discovered the new Mr. B Natural in the short film ''MagicalDisappearingMoney''.
** Then they did the actual, full short itself as a {{Kickstarter}} reward.
* FairyCompanion
* [[GenkiGirl Genki Sexless Man/Woman]]: Mr. B is very ''very'' perky.
* HartmanHips: Betty Luster, who plays Mr. B., unknowingly (or [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar knowingly]]?) shows off her hips when laying down on her side at one point.
* IncrediblyLamePun: All the "be natural" puns.
* MeaningfulName: "Be Natural". Also serves as a DoubleEntendre, as she's the embodiment of the B♮ musical note.
* MundaneMadeAwesome: Probably the only place you'll ever see high-schoolers marvelling over new band instruments. "Wow!"
-->'''Fred:''' ''([[WhatAnIdiot turning down a date with a cute girl]])'' Not me, Jeannie! Band practice! I wouldn't miss it for anything! I'm bucking for first clarinet chair![[note]]'''Servo:''' [[SarcasmMode Oh, do you DARE?]][[/note]]
* OldShame: Conn decades later admitted responsibility for the short and humorously apologized.
* ProductPlacement: It is a promotional short, and won't let you forget that for one second.
* ShesGotLegs: Mr. B, though the actress was a dancer, so it makes sense.
* ShoutOut: The short is deliberately trying to emulate the ''PeterPan'' stage play.
* StrangeSyntaxSpeaker: This is nowhere near constant, but Mr. B says two things like Yoda: "Knew your father, I did!" and, "Taught him how to play the french horn, I did!"
* SweetPollyOliver
* {{Telepathy}}: In the full short, Mr. B reveals s/he can read minds. UnfortunateImplications abound.
* VocalDissonance: For such a hot...person, Mr. B has a screechy, high-pitched, constantly fluctuating, harpy scream of a voice.
