How to deal with this Simon's Cat episode

I've been working my way through the Simon's Cat episodes (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2057193) adding cast and crew and reworking the numbering to be correct. I've also separate out the episodes that should go under Simon's Cat: Guide To (which are generally shorter and in color with no voice work.)

I'm now to the point that I need to know how to deal with episodes like "A Year in the Life of a Cat" (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt7276718/?ref_=ttep_ep64). I think it probably should just be deleted but I know the data editor will tell me that since it exists, they will be retaining it. However, it doesn't belong in Simon's Cat episodes. You can see that here on the blog by the creator of Simon's Cat: https://simonscat.com/films/?fwp_film_type=black-and-white

Also, if you look at the youtube video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=koh2F81qWkU&t=17s) and click "Show More", you will see that this "episode" is clips of 8 other episodes combined to make a story line about the seasons.

How do we deal with episodes that are basically just clip episodes of other previously shown episodes?

It seems similar to recap shows on TV. Some of those have been listed as stand-alone specials if they don't fit into the episode listings.

Do you have any examples? I just looked at the Viking's recap episode that aired before season 5 but it is listed as episode 0 of season 5.

Edit: Nevermind, I found one.

Hi Peter,

I was able to get it moved out of the series to a stand-alone but now it is listed as a "TV Movie". Any idea how to change this to a TV special?

Just add the tv-special keyword.
