* 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."

* 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.

* 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.

* ''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 He has been replaced by a HippieTeacher who "doesnt belive in tests".

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

* Miracle from ''WesternAnimation/SitDownShutUp''. Ironically, despite her fitting this trope, ''politically'' she's actually a hard right conservative.

* The music teacher teacher, Miss Edmunds, in ''Literature/BridgeToTerabithia'' is an older example a literal hippie as the book takes place not soon after the UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar. She stands out like a sore thumb in the small-town she lives in due to this. She's considered weird because she wears pants and a lot of this.the adults complain about her. Jess however has a PrecociousCrush on her and thinks she's a breath of fresh air amongst his [[SmallTownBoredom boring peers]].

* WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons: Springfield Elementary has one -- he's just a background character, but he usually shows up when there's a group of teachers onscreen. When all the textbooks were stolen and the teachers had to improvise their lessons, he sat cross-legged on his desk and asked, "Did I ever tell you kids about the '60s?"

* On ''Series/BrooklynNineNine'', Detective Jake Peralta's mom, [[Recap/BrooklynNineNineS3E14KarenPeralta Karen]], is a mellower version of this, teaching art classes and sporting a hippie-influenced fashion sense, including round glasses and beads. She even appears to be the right age to have grown up in the 1960s.
