* ''[[AfterschoolSpecial CBS Schoolbreak Special]]'': The 1984 episode "The Alfred G. Graebner Memorial High School of Rules and Regulations" includes a sequence of students having their school pictures taken. Mostly, these are comical reactions to the students' willingness to have their pictures taken.

* ''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]].
