* In ''WesternAnimation/ArthurChristmas'' the titular character wears one, and if the production notes are to be believed, has one for every day of the year.

* ''Film/ThreeAmigos''. On El Guapo's birthday, his bandits give him an ugly two-tone sweater as a present. See it on [=YouTube=] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ChLa6buF05M here at about 6:55]]. Hilariously, despite getting something as useless as a butt-ugly sweater in the Mexican badlands, El Guapo ''likes'' it and he wears it like a mantle for the rest of the scene.
* The Grinch is forced to wear one of these when he attends the Christmas Eve festivities in the live-action ''Film/HowTheGrinchStoleChristmas''.

* In the film ''Film/BetterOffDead'', Jenny gives her husband Al a truly horrific hooded aardvark suit for Christmas, complete with ears and a snout. He makes [[DeadpanSnarker the comment]] that everyone will be wearing one next year, then goes outside and finds his neighbor is indeed wearing one as well.

* One early ''Series/HannahMontana'' episode had Miley get a sweater with what looked like a stuffed cat in the front and back... AND it meows!
** In the same episode, Oliver mentions that he got the puppy version for Christmas. It barks [[EarWorm Jingle Bells]]. They duet at the end of the episode (the sweaters, that is.)

* The above was hilariously referenced in an episode of WhiteCollar; when Peter's in-laws are coming to visit, he wears the sweater his mother-in-law knit for him, prompting Diana to call him "Dr. Huxtable."

* On ''[[LongRunner The Late Late Show]]'' in Ireland, Christmas jumpers are SeriousBusiness. Current presenter Ryan Tubridy caused real controversy when it was hinted that he might not wear one for his first [[ChristmasEpisode Toy Show]]. The maroon jumper he eventually appeared in was auctioned off for charity, for a price of €1,050. The next year he caused outrage ''again'' by suggesting on Twitter that he wouldn't wear one. The nation loves the jumpers, the man, it would seem, does not.

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'', J'onn J'onzz (ComicBook/MartianManhunter) is visiting the Kents ({{Comicbook/Superman}}'s family) one Christmas. Martha gives him a sweater but it's too large. J'onn is pleased with the gift though and says he can grow into it, and promptly uses his shapechanging abilities to do just that.

* In the [[ClassicDisneyShorts Disney cartoon]] ''[[WesternAnimation/PlutoThePup Pluto]]'s Sweater'', MinnieMouse knits for Pluto a hideously fuchsia sweater that he immediately takes a disliking to. Forced to wear it outside, and quickly becoming the laughingstock of the neighborhood, Pluto spends the entire cartoon trying to extract himself from it.

* In an episode of ''PushingDaisies'', Emerson Cod complains to the Coroner about the Christmas sweater the Coroner is wearing and how a Christmas sweater is a stupid gift to get for Christmas, since you can only wear it ''on'' Christmas.

* ''Literature/MrsPiggleWiggle'': One of the reasons the kids love her is that she accepts such gifts (for example, an overly-long scarf) with sincere joy and enthusiasm.

* ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'': Garfield often gets these as Christmas presents from Jon's mother, and is forced to wear them by Jon. An early strip ([[http://www.mezzacotta.net/garfield/?comic=426 1981-12-27]]) shows the cat tying a loose end to a post and running to [[AllClothUnravels unravel his way out]], only for Jon's mother to knit it back together almost as fast. On one occasion, he got one that didn't even have a hole for his ''head''. And when she finally [[http://garfield.com/comics/vault.html?yr=2012&addr=121227 gets it right]], Jon and Garfield [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness are a little freaked-out]].

* ''FanFic/{{Scootamom}}: Princess Celestia's first attempt at knitting is anything but a rousing success. It manages to warp space and time around itself, and ordinary ponies become sick just looking at it. Scootaloo thinks it's cool.

* Creator/{{Lopoddity}}'s Pandoraverse: In a slight variation, Discord once knitted an incredibly ridiculous scarf shaped like himself as a [[YouMeanXmas Hearth’s Warming Eve]] present for Twilight, with “love in every stitch”, which Twilight ended up having to wear out of guilt. She tried to get him an equally garish sweater to get payback, but Discord, being Discord, thought it looked incredibly stylish.
