** "The Simpsons 138th Episode Spectacular" (Season 7): A take on sitcom retrospective episodes of the 1970s (like the ''Series/ThreesCompany'' example mentioned above). It had Troy [=McClure=] hosting a retrospective of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', showing viewers the show's early years as animated filler on ''The Tracy Ullman Show'', deleted scenes from popular episodes (all of which are real, according to WordOfGod, including the infamous "Robotic Richard Simmons" scene from season 5's "Burns' Heir"), portraying Matt Groening as a bald, drunken gun nut (instead of a bearded, bespectacled nerd), and, of course, "[[NakedPeopleAreFunny hard-core nudity]]!"

* Happens several times on ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' The first and most innovative clip show was in season 5's "Cat House", by having Piper cast a spell before recounting (with her hubby, Leo) many memories to a shrink... which has the side effect of putting Phoebe and Paige into scenes of those memories (although some of the memories have been tweaked to excise Prue... Phoebe sort of hangs a lampshade on how Paige replaced Prue by noting, "You wanted to meet Prue," while they're in a memory featuring her as a wolf). Other clip shows include "Crimes and Witch Demeanors, "Someone To Witch Over Me" and "Generation Hex".

** The reason for the outrage over Seinfeld's clip show finale was that just prior to the finale, NBC aired a 70 minute clip show. So they gave us back to back clip shows. And since it was the most popular syndicated show of all time at that point, it was clips that everyone had seen 50 times already.
** Each of the four series of [=''SClub''=] ends this way... which is very annoying as they often used clips used in previous series finale clip shows. Though, given that the rest of the series finales revolves around being as depressing as possible, it may not have been such a bad thing. They also did this when Paul left, if I recall correctly.

* Because of the massive number of storylines running at any given time and the fact that networks have moved away from actually airing reruns for long-running serialized shows, ABC produced a good number of clip-shows for ''Series/{{Lost}}'' and ''Series/DesperateHousewives'', usually airing them whenever the show's new season starts or after a brief hiatus between new episodes during the season. The purpose for these clip shows are to get returning fans up to speed with the plotlines or in the case of ''Series/{{Lost}}'', to clarify plot-points for viewers.

** The funny thing is that in the re-recorded scenes of My Deja Vu, My Deja Vu, there are minor differences in the dialogue, such as the Janitor claiming to have been from Yale instead of Harvard. The entire point of the episode is that while things can repeat themselves, it's the little differences that matter.

** In Season 8 episode "Citizen Joe", they do a quite delightful clip show that actually has very few clips in it -- the eponymous Joe is a regular guy who has picked up an alien device seven years ago that gives him a psychic connection to SG-1's Colonel O'Neill. Most of the episode is Joe recounting the events of various SG-1 episodes to the customers in his barber shop, and eventually trying to sell them as short stories. Joe's friends and wife get to play the role of the SG-1 fan as they make comments and complaints that real-life fans have made. They comment on Jonas Quinn, a [[SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute temporary replacement]] for Dr. Daniel Jackson (because the actor playing Jackson took a year off from the show), for example.

* Small part of ''Series/TheXFiles'' series finale, "The Truth," feels like a Clip Show. In the episode, the characters recap the series MythArc as part of Mulder's trial, and the clips accompany their recaps, but the after the trial, there are new scenes.

** Another Gabrielle-based clip show was very well done by going over the current Arc, which has Xena and Gabby's relationship straining, and put a new spin on the events of a pivotal two-parter by exploring Gabrielle's motives. It also uses cut footage to good effect AND serves to close a PlotHole that had been hanging (namely, how did Gabby get to China before Xena?).

* ''WesternAnimation/CaptainNTheGameMaster'': set a new low for cheaply done clip episodes: their clip show has no framing story to justify the clips, and in fact contains no new footage whatsoever. It's just a half hour of randomly assembled clips with no explanation...and with no dialog. Yes, for some reason, all the dialog has been removed from the clips, resulting in 30 minutes of silent reused animation playing over background music. Kids were understandably confused and upset. When the episode aired in syndication, they put the voices back in and added some new narration, most of which has nothing to do with the action on screen.

** ''Recess Christmas: Miracle on Third Street'' (Released a day after the show aired it's final episode) took place right after the ChristmasEpisode, with Principal Prickly carpooling Miss Finster and Miss Grotke home after school, until his car gets stuck in a snowbank, making him and Miss Finster instantly blame the kids, due to them having to deal with their pranks every day. So Miss Grotke tries to explain to them that the kids aren't as bad as they make them out to be, bringing up previous episodes ("Principal for a Day", "The Great Can Drive", "Weekend at Muriel's", and "Yes, Mikey, Santa Does Shave"), which play as part of the movie.

* In the ''Radio/HamishAndDougal'' episode "Trapped!", Hamish and Dougal find themselves trapped on an escalator (yes, it's that kind of show), and Hamish reminisces about the events of the previous episode, because that's what you do when you're [[LockedInARoom trapped somewhere]]. Dougal doesn't quite get the concept, becoming confused as to which of him is when halfway through a line from the clip, and then remembering a scene from ''Series/{{Friends}}'' instead.

*WesternAnimation/Amy'sMythicMornings has an episode dedicated to simply playing all the songs from earlier episodes without story.
*WesternAnimation/LittleCharmers has several episodes like "Magic of Charmville" which is 95% clips. It gets especially weird when they air this prior to some of the episodes the clips are from.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformers'' took this is an absurd extreme: the ''entire fifth season'' is a massive clip show in which Optimus Prime tells a young boy stories from the Autobot-Decepticon war, with each story consisting of an episode from one of the earlier seasons edited down somewhat to make room for the new segments with the kid.
