* ''Series/GetSmart''. In "Weekend Vampire", a GenreSavvy Maxwell Smart decides to block the portrait's eyes with tape to prevent this happening. Cue the mouth opening instead so the villain can peek out there. Then Max accidentally activates the hidden switch to [[BookcasePassage rotate the wall]] to reveal the villain standing with his face pressed to the hole.

* In the ''{{Duckman}}'' episode "Haunted Society Plumbers", the titular duck thinks he's being watched by a painting. His partner Cornfed thinks he's just imagining it. As they move away from the painting, the scene shifts to the painting, where hilariously the woman's ''top is pulled down'' and a pair of human eyes watches them from her "cleavage".

* In ''VideoGame/ZackAndWikiQuestForBarbarosTreasure'', one stage is set in Barbaros's art collection. One painting is of his butler, whose eyes will always follow Zack around the room. No one is behind the painting though--the painting really is sentient and animate, and he will pull the nearby rope on a TrapDoor should Zack walk across it. [[spoiler:Zack needs to grab the broom from another painting and smear it in a puddle of black ink left on the floor after draining the water from the fish painting. Then, Zack can smear the butler's eyes with the blank ink, blinding him and allowing Zack to safely walk across the trap door without him triggering it.]]
* Paintings of the Heavy King in [[WildWest Mirage Saloon]] in ''VideoGame/SonicMania'' will follow Sonic, Tails, or Knuckles as they pass on by. There's no explanation on why they're like that.
