Alice has been on BBC1's 'top' music show a couple of times. First was performing 'School's Out' in 1972. This performance caused moral watchdog Mary Whitehouse to call for the band to be banned. Apparently she didn't like Alice's sword.

To avoid having to show the same performance again when 'School's Out' remained at No. 1, the band organised a montage video of footage from the famous Hollywood Bowl show, including the camel that compare Wolfman Jack rode onto the stage.

On the event of its 500th edition(circa 1974), various pop stars made cameos to wish the show well... The Coopers were shown singing "Happy Birthday", all dressed in sailors suits.

The next time he was on the program was 1994, promoting the 'Lost In America' single. They pretty much built the show around him. He did have his snake with him... it even introduced the show - "hello, I'm Alice Cooper's snake, and this is TOTP". Between other acts there was a bit of a routine with the presenter of the show (Bruno Brookes)... Alice put the snake on his shoulders, later Alice asked where the guy had gone, saying they could only find his shoes, the presenter then appeared with torn clothes, etc. Finally, Alice sang his single, with info appearing on the screen that he's sold 30 million albums to date.

In July 2000, while over here to tour 'Brutal Planet', Alice recorded four tracks for sister show 'Top Of The Pops 2'. So far only School`s Out and Elected have been transmitted, the other two songs being new tracks from the album ('Blow Me A Kiss' and 'Gimme'?)

Here`s a list of all Alice`s appearances on the show according to the BBC (and whether the show still exists):
