* In one episode of ''Series/{{Friends}}'' Joey attempts to get an acting job playing a 19-year-old. He wears his underpants pulled high up over his jeans and a backwards cap, and tells Chandler, "Sup with the whack PlayStation SUP". Unsurprisingly, he does not fool anyone.

* [[TheSimpsons Mr. Burns]] masqueraded as a Springfield Elementary student in an attempt to convince Principal Skinner to spend the school budget on the nuclear power plant. His garb looked strangely similar to Jimbo's. Nobody was fooled.
** Homer tried this in "Hungry Hungry Homer" when he sneaked into Bart's class to try to get Sherri (one of the twins) to go out with Bart to the dance. Neither Krabappel nor the kids in the class pierced his disguise, and Homer managed to accomplish his goal.

* One episode of ''{{Daria}}'' featured a magazine editor called Val, who dressed as a teenager and attempted to use [[JiveTurkey 'hip']] slang so teenagers would like her. Since she looked far too old to be a teenager and her slang was outdated, it didn't work.

* This was revealed to be the part of the MO of the killer in the "It Takes A Village" episode of ColdCase. The man's petite stature and childlike voice, coupled with wearing baggy jeans and sweatshirts enabled him to pass for a teenager, thus easily luring his victims away.

* In a less serious context, Weda (and Ashio) in ''[[Anime/JungleWaItsumoHaleNochiGuu Haré+ Guu]]'' definitely does not pass as "Wendy, 17 years old". Probably because everybody in the class immediately recognizes her as a mother of their classmate Haré.
