* In the movie version of the musical ''Film/Mame'', during the song, "Open a New Window", we see Mame taking her nephew to many different schools with different educational philosophies, but she promptly pulls him out of an all-nude, all-boys' school headed by a nude headmaster.

* RickAndMorty used the trope in TheStinger of "Lawnmower Dog", where the stern teacher in Scary Terry's nightmare gets replaced by "[[ThemeNaming Scary]] Mr. Johnston", who then corrects himself, using the "that's my dad's name" line and telling the class to call him "Scary Glenn."

* Art Cooney on ''Series/TheWedge''. He is of the "Call me Art" mould, and has zero respect from his students.

* Lily on ''HowIMetYourMother'' is one of these to her kindergarten class. Somewhat justified since pre-schoolers really dont respond very well to a SternTeacher.

* Steve Small from ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' is the student counselor for Elmore Junior High and ''very'' much a hippie: he wears tie-die and sandals, holds interpretive dance classes, and tried to subsist on a diet of sunlight and meditation. [[SubvertedTrope Beneath that however]], he strongly diverges from the type as he shows himself to be violently bipolar, impatient, and often quite mean to his students--he once smashed an old painting with a club and burned it for being a "relic of convention", acted as a DrillSergeantNasty at ''cheerleading try outs'', and when two students have trouble with when to tell the truth or lie he eventually decides to just scare them into never talking again. He also admitted to only being a vegan so he can feel superiour to everyone else and in another was willing to eat the Wattersons when he lead a raider gang of students and neighbors.
* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' had an episode where Chris is in danger of failing history because of his SternTeacher (and just being plain dumb). Stewie and Brian attempt to help him learn the material via a time-travel adventure, but with very little success, until they arrive back home, and discover that Chris's original teacher no longer exists due to them accidently causing his ancestor to drown on the Titanic. He has been replaced by a HippieTeacher who "doesnt belive in tests".

* If someone was a 20 year old college student in the 1960s, then today they'd be old enough to retire. Which means many, if not most of them likely entered the workforce after graduating college. Thanks to the Draft being a big part of the 60's and 70's as well, it's entirely possible for one of your teachers to have been a Hippie Teacher ''and'' a RetiredBadass VeteranInstructor.

* Mr. Van Driessen on ''WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButthead'' (pictured), a literal hippie who embodies pretty much every stereotype associated with the 60's counter-culture. His teaching methods and easy going nature makes him fairly popular with the students, but are unfortunatly completely wasted on the main characters. Supposedly based on a real teacher Mike Judge had in high school.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Doug}}'''s school counselor Mr. Shellacky straddles this and MisplacedKindergartenTeacher. As that he is always suggesting "Hugs" and other "Make Love" solutions to problems, his office is plastered with feel-good posters, and he looks vaguely like a caricature of Music/BobDylan in an ugly sweater.
