** ''Film/TheBirthOfANation'': Used to illustrate UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar and/or UsefulNotes/AbrahamLincoln's assassination (when it comes time to illustrate the Reconstruction Era, expect a different source to be used for obvious reasons)

* Taken to something of an artform by the production staff of Series/{{Farscape}}, and by the end of its run something like 10% of the series was recycled footage from previous episodes. [[TropesAreNotBad It was usually done intelligently]] to fit in with the episode, and overall turned out incredibly well, especially since the savings allowed them to produce some of the most elaborate season finales ever made for a tv show.

* Season 3 of ''Series/DeadliestWarriors'' used Stock Footage from BBC specials (Creator/SpikeTV can't afford to have scenes containing dozens of Hannibal's elephants). The official producers of the show claimed that they didn't have the budget to continue the series anyways. Saddam Hussein and Pol Pot had alot of reallife Stock Footage since they had to make public speeches and propaganda and were also very recent modern warriors (most warriors on the show existed before modern filming and so don't have reallife Stock Footage).

* Used [[{{Egregious}} egregiously]] in ''[[ArchieComics The Archies' Funhouse]]'', where the same clips of animation would be used over and over with the only difference being the characters' clothes... and sometimes, not even that!

* ''Series/TotalRecall2070'': The pilot episode, in which the protagonists go to Mars to rescue a kidnapped boy, re-uses footage from ''Film/TotalRecall1990'' of Quaid's ship landing at the Mars colony spaceport.

* ''Series/TheListDetroit'': This local show from Detroit, Michigan lived on stock footage. Even in episodes presenting new material, a segment providing popular topics will be shown again, reusing the exact same footage from the last time it was shown, no editing, just the same presentation, in the same context, but the bumper monologue would change slightly every time it would show up, and who would be saying it would change, also to note, during these segments, whether it was a local star or a physician giving advice, 45% to 70% of the content shown would be public domain stock footage.

* Often played straight, but also subverted in Creator/TheBBC's ''Series/WalkingWithDinosaurs'' and its sequels, in which on occasion, prehistoric animals were {{CGI}}'d into stock footage taken from older documentaries. In turn, several ''WWD'' animations were recycled in later BBC and DiscoveryChannel docs, although the latter was always more fond of reusing clips from its own dinosaur shows, primarily ''WesternAnimation/WhenDinosaursRoamedAmerica'' and ''Series/DinosaurPlanet''.

* In the film ''Ed Wood'', Creator/JohnnyDepp's Ed Wood makes a statement about how he could make a whole film from Stock Footage. Ed Wood himself used a lot of stock footage, which led to amusing continuity errors.
* An example of absurd Stock Footage comes from the Zucker brothers' classic ''{{Airplane}}!'' Ted Stryker has continuous flashbacks to his Vietnam experience, which behind the cockpit, which are shown by old-time World War II footage of airplanes being shot down... then, eventually, by pre-Wright Brothers footage of some of man's unsuccessful attempts to fly an airplane, all with the same "plane being shot down in a dogfight" sound effects.

* ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' did a series of sketches about the fictional assassination of [[Film/TheLittleRascals Buckwheat]], played by EddieMurphy. Stock footage was used to make it look like the world was making a ridiculously large deal out of his death, splicing in shots of state funerals and world leaders tearing up or making emotional speeches. See [[http://www.nbc.com/saturday-night-live/video/clips/buckwheat-dead-america-mourns/2754/ here]] for a portion.

Added DiffLines:

** Virtually all of Creator/KunihikoIkuhara's shows intentionally do this, not just to save on animation, but, like nearly every aspect of his shows, to symbolize the monotony and repetitiveness of living one's life by a set pattern.

* ''Film/SgtKabukimanNYPD'' gives us a car chase scene, which climaxes when a blue sedan strikes another vehicle, flips upside-down 30 feet in the air, lands, and then inexplicably explodes. The same footage has been used in many other films by Troma Entertainment (the same company), including ''Film/TromeoAndJuliet'', ''Film/TerrorFirmer'', ''Film/PoultrygeistNightOfTheChickenDead,'' and ''Citizen Toxie: The Toxic Avenger IV''.
