A eight minute episode of BatMan to introduce Bat Girl. The ratings at this were low and Yvonne Craig as Bat Girl was there to boost the ratings. This "episode" was shown to the "suits" of 20th century fox and never aired. I figure it's PD.

A "Live" 1953 commercial for Kix Cereal. This is taken directly from an episode of "Ding Dong School", which can also be downloaded on the internet archive. The host of the show, who to an extent had creative control, insisted that only products that were beneficial to children could be advertised on the program. This is a long commercial, but there were only two commercials during the entire 30-minute broadcast. See complete broadcast here: Ding Dong School

From the live tv anthology series Tales of Tomorrow. After a customer is overly eager to buy a crystal egg, an antique shop owner does the only logical thing: takes it to the chairman of Cambridge's physics department (played by Thomas Mitchell, Uncle Billy from It's a Wonderful Life), who discovers the egg's secret. From a story by H. G. Wells More info at the IMDB . Upload courtesy of Inventing Situations . Hopefully in the public domain.

This television episode marks the first filmed meeting between Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. Based on "A Study in Scarlet" and very loosely "The Adventure of the Reigate Squires/Puzzle."

Three 1954 commercials for Welch's Family Wine, a "kosher" wine. I don't normally upload live commercials, but due to the rarity of these 3 commercials I decided to upload them as separate files (they come from the sole surviving episode of "On Your Way", which can also be downloaded from the Internet Archive).

An old, classic commercial for Aunt Jemima pancakes from around 1967. With jingle, but has poor color-quality.
