* ''VideoGame/{{Lunarosse}}'' plays it pretty straight, as it looks like spring the entire game except for one plot event where winter hits and the characters celebrate the holidays at their snow-covered base. Since it goes right back to its usual look after, the implication is winter lasted less than a month. Of course, this is more the limits of RPG Maker and not having to remake every area in the game for a winter climate.



* Both used and lampshaded in ''TheSimpsons'':

** ''{{Peanuts}}'' was famous for its numerous winter strips (ice-skating, hockey, snowball fights) - but then, Charles Schulz was from Minnesota, one of the wintriest of all U.S. states.
** ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' in particular had some epic winter strips over the years, including his famous [[strike:demented snowmen]] deranged mutant killer monster snow goons. (Cartoonist Bill Watterson was from the Cleveland, Ohio, area, which can and does have some pretty cold, snowy winters.)
*** But played straight by ''ComicStrip/PearlsBeforeSwine'' which unsurprisingly takes place in California,the cartoonist himself lampshaded the lack of snow due to being Californian and not really experiencing it so much. Maybe once or twice is there any snow

* Averted in ''[[BackyardSports Backyard Football 2004]]''. When the climate in real life changes, the game climate changes too. Sports games, football games in particular, have had weather options in place since the 16-bit era. American football is ''defined'' to some degree by the fact that it's played outdoors, in a season extending from fall until the end of January or the beginning of February, and the majority of its teams are located in the (colder, wetter) northeast and Great Lakes regions.

* On ''CampLazlo'', it's always summer. Makes sense, since they're at summer camp, right? Except it's still summer, and they're still at camp on Valentine's Day. Most of the ChristmasEpisode took place in July, for crying out loud.

** Despite this, in the original series the only time it ever ''appears'' to be a certain season is in it's respective nation. It only snows in the poles and the characters only dress for summer in the always temperate fire nation. Averted in the sequel series where Republic City clearly shifts from fall to winter over the course of the first season.

Justified due to being an explicitly alternate universe with it's own geographical seasonal norms. Averted in the sequel series where Republic City clearly shifts from fall to winter over the course of the first season.

** Another flipside to this is Florida, a peninsula filled with swamps and surrounded by sea waters on both sides so when seasons like spring and summer do arrive the humidity is so thick with heat and uncomfortable you're more likely to find state citizens inside an air-conditioned house than outside by the pool.

* In ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'' it was always summer for the first four seasons except the three holiday specials. After it was {{Uncancelled}} the fifth and final season took place in fall.

* Creator/USANetwork's "blue skies" strategy was named in reference to this trope. The idea was to create light, breezy dramas with bright visual palettes in sunny locations. Examples include ''Series/BurnNotice'', set in Miami, and ''Series/{{Psyche}}'', set in Santa Barbara, CA. ''Series/MrRobot'', the thematically and visually dark drama set in the often-overcast New York City, effectively signaled an end to this strategy.

* ''VideoGame/{{Bully}}'' takes place over a school year, with appropriate season changes. After you've completed the main story, however, the game goes into pure sandbox mode aptly called "[[TheBeachBoys Endless Summer]]."
