** The holy grail of the KTMA episodes were the first three KTMA-aired episodes, which never turned up on the list of traded tapes and remained unseen after their original airings. However, Joel Hodgson managed to get hold of two of them in 2016 and release them as bonuses for the ''[=MST3K=]]'' revival Kickstarter backers. Only the KTMA version of ''Fugitive Alien II'' remains completely missing.

* In 1973, the BBC produced an extremely gritty hard-science fiction program called ''Moonbase 3'', which was canceled the same year. All the tapes of it were destroyed, and the program became semi-mythical to ScienceFiction fans. Twenty years later, NTSC copies of the program were found at an American PBS affiliate and made available in DVD format.

* The 1964 edition of the EurovisionSongContest from Copenhagen is a strange example. Depnding on whom you ask, it's lost either due to the Danish broadcaster's archive mishap or missing because of a Spanish anti-Franco protester showing up near the end. Bits of it are still shown, including the winner's reprise by Gigliola Cinquetti. The 1956 contest is also missing some parts; while there's newsreel footage of the winner's reprise, and audio of most of the contest (20 minutes are missing) there is no copy of the show in its entirety.

* The television adaptation of ''DrKildare'' starring Richard Chamberlain had one, which was unique in that it was one of the first [[{{crossover}} crossover episodes]] in TV history. The pilot for the MGM psychiatry drama series ''The Eleventh Hour'' (1962-64) was produced and intended to air as a 1962 episode of ''Dr. Kildare'', but after initial test screenings, the episode was {{recut}}, removing all scenes and references of Kildare and Gillespie. The newly edited version was then aired as the premiere episode of ''The Eleventh Hour'': "Ann Costigan: a Duel on a Field of White." The uncut, original episode of ''Dr. Kildare'' was never aired or publicly seen until 2013, when it was released on DVD as a bonus feature on Warner Archive's ''Dr. Kildare: The Complete First Season''.

* The British series ''Series/AdamAdamantLives'', about an adventurer in Edwardian England who is cryogenically frozen and wakes up in the 1960s, ran for 29 episodes across two seasons in 1966-67 and was one of the inspirations for the ''AustinPowers'' movies. Only 17 episodes survive, all but two from the first season. The scripts of the missing episodes have survived, however, and were included as a bonus on the DVD release along with a four-minute audio clip of the first episode from the second season.

* ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' has several {{Missing Episode}}s, either from the show's "Season Zero" on local [[UsefulNotes/TwinCities Minneapolis]] television station KTMA (considered [[OldShame not up to the show's standard]]) or riffing movies for which Best Brains no longer has the rights. (Toho, for example, denied them the rights to the ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'' franchise.) As if in anticipation of this problem, ''[=MST3K=]'' became the TropeNamer for KeepCirculatingTheTapes, which still applies for episodes which have not been legally released. The unaired pilot and the first three "Season Zero" episodes, however, do not exist in any private fan collections, whereas 50 out of 176 Creator/ComedyCentral era episodes have not been released on DVD (including the series finale).

** Two episodes from the first series of ''Series/ItAintHalfHotMum'' from 1974 were wiped after broadcast. The only surviving copies were recorded by an Australian viewer on VHS from a re-run on the Creator/SevenNetwork in 1988, and are trimmed by five minutes each to accommodate advertisements.



* Another prominent victim of the BBC's practice of tape-wiping was ''Series/TopOfThePops''. Most early episodes were wiped by the BBC only four complete episodes exist from the 1960s (one and most of another with the presenter's links mute), and the show's archive only exists in full from 1977 onwards. Even then, episodes featuring disgraced presenters Jimmy Savile and/or Dave Lee Travis have been removed from the rerun rotation. Some of them can be found on YouTube.

* ''Series/{{Friends}}'' had an episode that had to be scrapped and reshot after 9/11 about to leave on their honeymoon, Chandler and Monica get stopped in airport security when Chandler jokes that he has a bomb in his luggage. The two are dragged off to have their luggage searched, jokes about underwear ensue. The episode was reshot with Chander and Monica trying to sneak into the superior private lounge at the airport. The original storyline never aired, though the original scenes from the subplot did eventually turn up on YouTube, and the original cut of the episode is available on the DVD set of the series.
