In Season 1 of Sesame Street, Batman and Robin appeared in animated segments done by Filmation, in the same style as their 1969 animated show, The Adventures of Batman. In total, four segments were used for the show; Batman first appeared in the first test pilot of Sesame Street (available on the DVD, Old School: Volume 2) and later had three more segments in the main series.
The first three segments, "Batman Crosses the Street", "Around/Up/Through", and the untitled Ernie and Bert segment from the pilot featuring Batman are available on the DVD sets Old School: Volume 1, 40 Years of Sunny Days, and Old School: Volume 2 respectively.
The final segment, which first aired in "Episode 99", was titled "Clean and Dirty" and was intended to teach kids the difference between clean and dirty. It's 51 seconds long and features The Penguin's gang, who had dirty windows. Verification of the segment's existence, length, and first airing came from materials at the CTW Archives in the University of Maryland.
On September 16th, 2019, a collection of screenshots from the segment were uploaded online, proving that the segment still remained in existence.
On July 15th, 2021, LittleJerryFan92 uploaded the full segment to YouTube. When questioned about the source of this finding, the uploader said they couldn't reveal it.
