** They ended up having another one near the end of season five in the episode "So Totally Not Groove-y", though it ended up having more of an active plot than the first one.

* Oddly enough, this is OlderThanTelevision; there are [[TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation old animated theatrical shorts]] composed mainly of footage from ''other'' shorts. ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'' is very guilty of this, having six shorts composed mainly of footage from earlier T&J cartoons. One of the T&J "clipshows" takes it a bit further: after the usual schtick of having Tom watch older T&J cartoons, it then tries to pass off a scene of Tom working at a drawing board from an earlier short as being ''part of the actual story''.

* An unusual example occurs in the third act of the ''{{Frasier}}'' episode "Daphne Returns"; over the course of the episode, Niles and Daphne have been experiencing difficulties in their relationship, and in an effort to help, Frasier talks Niles through some of the significant moments in their relationship (their first meeting, their first dance, etc) -- however, both the current Frasier and Niles are [[PensieveFlashback inserted into the scenes with their past selves]], thus allowing the characters (and audience) to view the scenes in question from different perspectives. Not only are the clips worked into the episode in a logical and interesting fashion, but they only appear towards the end.

* ''SavedByTheBell'' does this three times. One episode uses a framing device of the gang hanging around the Max reminiscing about various scenes/episodes related to dating and romance. Another has Mr. Belding with a group of students from a class many years in the future, watching a video time capsule made by the "present" group of kids. The last has the gang at Zack's house remembering the wacky hijinks of their summer working at the beach club (the 8-episode summer season).

* In the early ''WKRPInCincinnati'' episode, "Mama's Review", Mama Carlson comes to review the progress of the radio station and Andy and Arthur Carlson ineffectually try to explain the bizarre disasters that have occured as seen in the clips. Unlike similar shows, this episode also features significant character development of both Mama and Son Carlson as each own up to their mistakes.

* ''ThreesCompany'' has a "best of" clip show hosted by Creator/LucilleBall.

* In its very first season, ''DiffrentStrokes'' has an episode where Mr. Drummond reminisces with Arnold and Willis while they prepare to celebrate their first Christmas together. That's right: not only did they give us a Clip Show a mere nine episodes into the show's run, they combined it with a ChristmasEpisode in the bargain! And it was a two-part episode, to boot. In the framing sequence, Mr. Drummond wakes up the kids in the middle of the night to remind them that it's the 8-week anniversary of their arrival.

* ''Series/TheJeffersons''' clip show came midway through the fourth season (1977-1978), when George and Louise after interrupting a burglary at their apartment, are tied to chairs while the robbers get away reminisce about their first three years in Manhattan. As a bonus, the show flashes back to their days on ''AllInTheFamily'' and their conflicts with Archie Bunker.

* ''HomeImprovement'' had two: "Tool Time After Dark", where Tim watches tapes of the ShowWithinAShow ''Tool Time'', and the second part of the three part finale, where Tim, Brad and Mark reminisce about their life in Detroit while preparing to move.

* ''TheYoungAndTheRestless'' has had a number of these over the years, often involving Victor Newman reminiscing on his on-and-off romance with Nikki and/or the importance of family.

* This is explicitly discussed in ''ComicBook/{{Miracleman}}'' #8. The editor of the book actually [[BreakingTheFourthWall breaks the fourth wall]] and comments on this trend, citing an issue of ''Comicbook/DoctorStrange'' where [[MarvelComics Marvel]] just reprinted an old SteveDitko story and had the gall to pass it off as a {{Flashback}}.

* Another famous example: ''Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico'' [[PlayingWithATrope plays with this trope]] by using its ShowWithinAShow ''Anime/{{Gekiganger 3}}'' as a FramingDevice -- with the ''Gekiganger ''characters watching the episode as their own ShowWithinAShow (Within A Show... my puzzler hurts). The ''Gekiganger'' characters freely [[LampshadeHanging hang a lampshade]] on this trope. And just to completely demolish the FourthWall, the second half of the episode reveals that ''Gekiganger'''s trademark ForgottenSuperweapon, the Gekigan Flare, was inspired by ''Nadesico''. Which has already had its hero come up with a FinishingMove based on ''Gekiganger''. This editor will just lie down now...

** Subverted in "The one where everyone turns 30" which showed clips of what the gang did when they each turned 30.

* ''KenanAndKel'' had a [[LampshadeHanging lampshade-hung]] clip show, with Kenan explaining how the concept worked: "All you have to do is [[FlashbackStares stare into the distance]], and [[FlashbackEffects everything gets all blurry]]."

Added DiffLines:
* The first two series of ''Series/AnIdiotAbroad'' each ended with an episode called "Karl Comes Home". The framing device of Ricky and Steve asking Karl about his travels was similar in tone to their conversations on ''Radio/TheRickyGervaisShow''. The clips were also interspersed with unused footage from previous episodes.

* Yes, this happens in comics too, especially during the [[SilverAge Silver]] and [[UsefulNotes/TheBronzeAgeOfComicBooks Bronze Ages]]. A fairly common tactic for [[{{Filler}} Padding]] a storyline or filling in gaps due to {{Schedule Slip}}s was to reprint material from older issues and treat it as though it were a [[WholeEpisodeFlashback Whole Issue Flashback]]. Since most of the readers were [[FleetingDemographicRule too young to remember the original stories]], they were often unaware they were paying good money for recycled material.
