Sometimes regular episodes ''turn into'' clip shows when they are localized for other markets, as it's simple and inexpensive to edit in recap segments made up of clips from prior episodes to replace the gaps made when content is deleted as too risqué for the new market.

''original'' market, as was the case with ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'''s infamous HotSpringsEpisode.)

** The ''[[Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross Macross]]'' segment featured two clip show episodes adapted directly from the Japanese show, which had to use clip shows to fill space after its order was suddenly expanded from 23 to 36 episodes early in the season. One episode had an expertly edited dream sequence episode formed mainly of clips, with new dialogue, which flowed into each other in a very accurate rendition of dream logic. The other was the episode ''Gloval's Report,'' which is pretty much exactly what it sounds like: Captain Gloval reporting the major milestones of the series thus far to his superiors. (''Gloval's Report'' was also expanded into a CompilationMovie, ''Codename: Robotech'', for broadcast to build interest in advance of the show beginning its syndication run.)
** The ''[[Anime/GenesisClimberMospeada New Generation]]'' episode called "Sandstorm" is another clip show adapted directly from the original series.

Another ''New Generation'' episode gained a several-minute recap segment at the beginning when several minutes of nudity were deleted from the original series's HotSpringsEpisode.

** They did it twice, actually. Once in the episode that linked the ''[[Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross Macross]]'' segment to the ''[[Anime/SuperDimensionCavalrySouthernCross Robotech Masters]]'' segment. Then again in a ''[[Anime/GenesisClimberMospeada New Generation]]'' episode called "Sandstorm". The first one was particularly notable because it was created entirely from other episodes' content by the American translation company.
** A more traditional example can be found in the season one episode ''Gloval's Report,'' which is pretty much exactly what it sounds like: Captain Gloval reporting the major milestones of the series thus far to his superiors. This was a direct adaptation of the ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' episode ''Global Report''.

Clip shows can be used to stretch the budget -- they utilize footage already shot, thus needing only narrative glue money for the episode. In that sense, they are similar to a BottleEpisode.

BottleEpisode. They can also be used to stretch the ''story'' -- when a show's episode order is suddenly expanded after its early episodes prove popular, but the writers don't have enough story to fill quite that many episodes, clip shows are a popular recourse.

Added DiffLines:

** For added benefit, the vast majority of clips were new footage and ''not'' from previous episodes.


Added DiffLines:

* An episode during the final season of ''Series/{{Sisters}}'' had the girls and their mother trapped during a snowstorm. They kept awake by reminiscing about past events.
* ''Series/DrQuinnMedicineWoman'' had several of these. Two were of Dr. Quinn and Sully reviewing their relationship (one during their premarital counseling, the other while he was trying to keep her awake after a head injury), the other was Dr. Quinn discussing her most interesting cases with daughter Colleen, who was preparing to go to medical school herself.

* In addition to re-using old animation in "new" theatrical shorts and TV specials, the [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Warner Brothers cartoon set]] has five ''movies'' devoted to this. The first, ''The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Movie'' (1979), is a ''That's Entertainment!''-esque retrospective hosted by WesternAnimation/BugsBunny in new linking segments; the sequels use new animation to link the shorts together into a long storyline. For example, ''Daffy Duck's Movie: Fantastic Island'' has a framing device of various characters making wishes in a wishing well. You can easily tell what is original footage and what isn't because of the difference in animation. Also[[Mel Blanc's Creator/MelBlanc]] voice was noticeably different towards the end of his life, making it easy to distinguish original lines from lines that were redubbed to fit the plot of the film.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' episode "[[Recap/TheLegendOfKorraS4E8Remembrances Remembrances]]" is a ThreeShorts version of this. The first has Mako telling his history of the Mako/Korra/Asami love triangle, the second has Korra telling Asami about her doubts and defeats, and third was Varrick's plan to make a "mover" VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory. The clip show was done due to a sudden budget cut, and the writers tried ''really'' hard to at least make the episode interesting. Korra's section is a pretty straight example (albeit one with actual CharacterDevelopment). Mako's comes off as the creators' SelfDeprecation at [[RomanticPlotTumor how messy the love triangle was]], and also sort of {{Ret Con}}s an actual character arc onto it for Mako. Varrick's, meanwhile, was basically the writers making TheAbridgedSeries of their own show.

* WesternAnimation/TheMagicAdventuresOfMumfie had "The Album", where the characters find a memento of one of their adventures and a clip from the episode follows it. The order of the items may suggest that all the episodes are OutOfOrder.
