* 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]].

* 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.

* A skit from ''TheWhitestKidsUKnow'' has a child showing a picture he drew to his parents. While it appears to be something rather inappropriate (read: penis), he explains to his parents after they fail to recognize that it is actually an elephant. Subverted moments later, when the child shows them a drawing that looks exactly what it meant to be.

* In ''Manga/VictorianRomanceEmma'', little Colin Jones draws doodles that look vaguely like some animal or other and gets upset if they're misidentified. Eldest brother William is the best at figuring out what's been drawn, mostly because every other Jones child once drew like that.

* In one episode of ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'', Leonard, Sheldon, Amy, and Penny have a Game Night, girls vs. guys. They start out with Pictionary, and Leonard and Sheldon completely fail at it. (Sheldon mistakes 'polish' for 'Polish', so draws Polish sausages and things associated with Marie Curie and Copernicus, who were both Polish. When it's Leonard's turn to draw, Sheldon guesses science things like 'quark-gluon plasma', when it's actually a chocolate chip cookie.)

* In the ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes'' episode "The Big Date", one of the things Jimmy and Beezy try to do to keep [[RichBitch Jez]] busy while Lucius deals with a problem at his factory is the trope. Hilariously, Jimmy draws an extremely accurate horse representation but [[FatIdiot Beezy]] [[EpicFail constantly identifies it as things like a waffle]].
