* One GEICO commercial shows a game of Pictionary, with a sloth as the artist. A straight line is all it can draw before time expires. (The picture is supposed to be a tandem bicycle.)

* The Series/{{Friends}} good-naturedly mock Monica for the horrifying "Pictionary Incident," wherein she threw a plate in a moment of frustration at one of her buddies' poor drawing. She insists she was just gesticulating forcefully and the plate slipped out of her hand.

* German family show "Die Montagsmaler" was entirely based on invoking this trope - A had to scribble a pic illustrating some word and B [[CatchPhrase ("Hund! Katze! Maus!")]] had to identify it. CrowningMomentOfFunny ensued when a completely inept contestant should draw a navel - and the guesser refused to solve, thinking it was, uhm, [[AccidentalInnuendo something less innocent]].

* In one episode of ''Series/NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide'', Ned tries to paint abstract art and the entire school thinks it's a [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar naked lady]]. At the end of the episode, he tries again and people see it as a fire truck.

** Another episode features Stewie actually playing Pictionary with a family who had moved into the Griffins' house. The husband of the family keeps shouting, "It's a jackal! Jackal! It looks like a jackal! Jackal!", much to Stevie's irritation once time runs out.

** Another episode features a flashback gag where Stewie is actually playing pictionary with a complete stranger. The stranger keeps asking "Is it a jackal? Jackal! It's a jackal!" no matter how many non-jackal details Stewie adds.
-->'''Stewie:''' If it wasn't right the first time, why the hell would it be right the next ten times?!

* A ''ComicStrip/ForBetterOrForWorse'' comic has a young Elizabeth showing her father a painting after a day of preschool. Her dad starts to comment on what a nice face it is, until Elizabeth interrupts to tell him that it's just a pizza.
* In a ''ComicStrip/FoxTrot'' strip, Roger and Andy are playing Pictionary. He keeps shouting out obviously incorrect answers as the drawing progresses (including "It's a snowstorm!" before she's even drawn anything), culminating in "It's a Christmas tree in a cereal bowl next to a snake!" and "[[TooDumbToLive What's with these 'B', 'O', 'A', and 'T' symbols? Are they Pictionary shorthand?]]"

* Parodied in the ''RockosModernLife'' episode "Cabin Fever". Bev Bighead invites Ed to try hand shadow puppetry with Rocko and Heffer, and despite Ed being able to create the unmistakable shapes of "The Thinker", the Eiffel Tower, and a prancing deer, none of the other three can get anywhere close to the right answers. This raises Ed's temper to the point that he causes the HairTriggerAvalanche driving the remainder of the episode's plot.
