* ''LeaveItToBeaver'': An episode, aptly titled "The School Picture," was based around Picture Day, and 10-year-old Beaver and his buddy, Gilbert, conspiring to make funny faces as the photographer snaps the photo. When it comes time to actually take the picture, Gilbert has second thoughts and wisely decides not to pull the immature trick. Beaver follows through, and the resulting proof is one that makes Mrs. Rayburn -- and Ward, when he sees it -- very angry. Ward sternly tells Beaver that such a picture reflects badly on the whole school, not just him, and shows disrespect. Fortunately, the photography studio comes to the rescue, as the photographer has stock clip art on hand, placing a hair ribbon on the head of a little girl that was standing in front of Beaver. (Remember, this episode was produced in an era more than 30 years before digital photography was invented, and camera film was a rather expensive commodity in the early 1960s, precluding the photographer from taking another photo.)

* ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'', "Smile for the Ed": Eddy tries to get a good school picture, so his mom will let him move into his big brother's old bedroom. Unfortunately, an ill-timed cry of "Dork!" from JerkJock Kevin puts a crimp in his plans.

* ''TheBradyBunch'': The classic sitcom had a couple, although not necessarily focused on school picture day per se:
** ''The Not-So-Rosed-Colored Glasses'' was centered on a family portrait of the kids (as an anniversary gift for their Mike and Carol), an absent-minded photographer, a near-sighted Jan crashing into and ruining the photograph with her bicycle, the absent-minded photographer losing the negative and forcing a retake of the photo, Jan wearing her glasses for the new picture (she had not gotten the glasses when the original was snapped) and Mike immediatley noticing the difference.
** ''Law and Disorder'', where Bobby wears his good suit for a school yearbook photo of Clinton Avenue Elementary School's safety monitors. (The photo-taking session is not an integral part of the script. Bobby's decision to trespass into a condemned house to retrieve a classmate's kitty while wearing the suit, getting the suit dirty and then trying to wash the suit himself to conceal his actions were.)

Oh no! Picture day is coming and, unfortunately for you, you're in a sitcom. You'll probably have to duck through a FoodFight to [[DoomedNewClothes stay clean]], or go to drastic measures to fix the unholy mess your hair has become, or find a way to change out of the lame outfit your mom made you wear. Either that or you are simply faced with the pimple [[DoomyDoomsOfDoom OF DOOM]].

* In ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'', a flashback in "Weirdmaggedon: Part 2" shows a younger Mabel getting a piece of gum in her hair on picture day, causing her to dissolve into tears. Dipper cheers her up by finding a razor and convincing her to just shave a chunk of it right off - using his ''own'' hair to demonstrate. In the end, Mabel is comforted by the fact that they get to have a horrible school picture together.

* ''{{Lizzie McGuire}}'' also had an episode based around Picture Day. Lizzie wanted to find a way out of being forced to wear the [[HomemadeSweaterFromHell hideous green unicorn sweater]] her grandmother gave her for Christmas, and [[AlphaBitch Kate]] had a classmate throw paint at Miranda because she didn't want her to be photographed wearing the same trendy outfit she was. [[spoiler: Lizzie [[TakingTheBullet Took The Bullet]], metaphorically speaking, and ended up posing in the paint-splattered blouse she had borrowed while holding up the sweater. Her parents reluctantly admitted that she ''did'' have the sweater in the photo, and at least they'll be able to save money on buying prints this year.]]
* An episode of ''NedsDeclassified'' dealt with Picture Day. Among other items, he points out that it's unnecessary to dress up from the waist down.
