Well here's something I never expected to see. The very rare independently produced 1931 version of Alice in Wonderland's on YouTube!

Alligators in frozen river. They came up before it froze and stuck their noses out of the water so they could still breathe once it froze over.

Pokemon: A Great Journey

An okay fan film. Seems to get the right tone, but a bit too rushed. The CGI Pokemon blend well with the live action footage and are well-animated, but often look creepy; the FX folks need to work on the characters' faces.

More sad than fun or cool, but still interesting. A small part of a newscast should be fair use, right?

Another video of the same plane, after it was turned into a restaurant, after the restaurant closed: http://www.michaeljohngrist.com/2009/10 ... Qlpdi.dpbs

A monorail in a 60's British amusement park. Has a small bit showing them building the car, and a ride around the park.

90's Search Engine Commercials.

Yahoo's is funny. Lycos' and HotBot's aren't too bad. Excite's two ads are pretty bad; they barely tell you what Excite does. And who remembers Snap, NBC's short-lived directory? I've looked at it before in the Internet Archive; it was small next to DMOZ or Yahoo.
