Are The Animals the group with the most Missing Episodes appearances?, just look at the Lostshows link above and see just how many episodes of RSG!, Thank Your Lucky Stars, Top Of The Pops, The Beat Room and many many more shows...
with so many, it increases the likelihood that footage and/or audio can perhaps be located?
Can anyone think of any other Group that has so many Missing Episodes appearances as The Animals?

Eric Burdon also made a few appearances on British TV during this period without the Animals and some of these are missing.
Saw the original line-up twice in 1983-84(?) in the US on the second reunion attempt, touring to support their album "The Ark." The second time I saw them was at an outdoor venue, with some supporting musicians, and they were great. Had the place jumping. But, the first show I saw, about thre months or so earlier, was just sublime. A small club (100 people tops), and just the original five guys. We were practically on-stage with them. Burdon was in great shape and all over the place. The band was tight and having a ball. They played for almost three hours and left the stage completely drenched. In my top five shows/events of all time.
