Re: Has any other TV series ever done what 'The Menagerie' did?

^A little Wiki reveals that it was Matthew Star, which at least had the virtue of having run an entire season (with a major format shake-up mid-season). The Phoenix only ran for 5 episodes! Both were ca. 1982.

I think some are being a little unfair likening "The Menagerie" to a clip show. Most clip shows show "best of" moments that have already aired. "The Menagerie" was the first and only way to watch "The Cage" on television for 20 years.
