The 30s one is actually pretty impressive! It certainly has to be the first screen representation of the Ranger, although I can see where theories of it being repurposed come from: parts of it looks suspiciously a bit like semi-"rotoscope" test footage…?

We had a VHS of the 60s TV shorts: I always assumed Filmation had made these as the tape was part of an early Filmation line, but that did also include some Eurotoons as well. Any idea where that hailed from?

Filmation's didn't come along until around the '80-'81 hype for the movie--
The 1966 series was from "Format Films", and IMDb lists Halas & Batchelor as one of the major animation studios.

H&B, the same people who gave us that great animated version of Gilbert & Sullivan, the same year:

This looks to be a rip of the BFI's DVD (or at least part of it), which is a bit of a no-no around these parts… They still need to update that disc to Blu-ray.
