[[caption-width-right:280:Welcome to our class!]]
The Wacky Homeroom occurs when a show centers around a particular class and the teacher and the students have distinctly quirky personalities. Sometimes the focus of the series is more on the teacher, and sometimes it's more on the student. Either way, the personalities are intentionally blown up and caricature-ish in order to help bring more interest to an otherwise mundane setting.

If the show focuses more on the teacher, expect to see cases of SenseiChan, the AbsentmindedProfessor, and/or the MisplacedKindergartenTeacher heading up the group. If the focus is on the students, the students may make up the FiveManBand archetype or perhaps many of them will be {{Cloudcuckoolander}}s with an OnlySaneMan thrown in to represent the viewer and/or contrast all the wackiness. Either way, hijinks ensue.

RuleOfFunny and/or RuleOfCool often apples.

!!Examples:

[[AC:{{Anime}} and {{Manga}}]]
* The TV-series of ''Anime/AllPurposeCulturalCatGirlNukuNuku'' introduced a class of walking cliches for Nuku-Nuku to interact with. They're even introduced with an appropriate tag such as '[[AlphaBitch Snobby Rich Girl]]' or '[[{{Bishounen}} Nihilistic Pretty-Boy]]' whenever they appear on stage. This was noticeably absent from the OVA, where Nuku-Nuku went to school ''once'', prompting the destruction of most of the premises in a fight between her and an attack helicopter. They didn't try to send her to school again.
* ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'' is a relatively low-key example, but the main characters are still a pretty eccentric bunch.
* ''Manga/{{Beelzebub}}''
* Ichigo's homeroom in ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' could certainly be described as wacky. Outside of the fact that the teacher regularly mocks the students, the room has been invaded by shinigami multiple times, and one time Kon showed up in Ichigo's body. In all cases the room was essentially destroyed. Oh, and the teacher doesn't even seem to care about Ichigo and his friends either not turning up for class or running out in the middle of it.
* ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'', although the entire series isn't exactly focused on the protagonist's homeroom.
* ''Manga/CromartieHighSchool''
* ''Manga/DokiDokiSchoolHours''. Trope picture.
* The {{Eldoran}} series: ''Anime/ZettaiMutekiRaijinOh'' and ''Anime/NekketsuSaikyoGosaurer''.
* Averted in ''Manga/FruitsBasket''. Aside from the main characters, their class is actually pretty normal. It serves as a stark contrast to [[DysfunctionJunction the Sohma clan]], and highlights the desire of the [[EasternZodiac Members of the Zodiac]] to be [[IJustWantToBeNormal normal]].
* ''Gap''
* ''Manga/{{Gokusen}}''
* ''Manga/GreatTeacherOnizuka''
* ''Manga/HidamariSketch''
* ''Manga/{{Hyakko}}''
* ''Anime/JewelpetSunshine''
* ''Manga/LuckyStar'', at [[SliceOfLife times]].
* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima''. "Wacky" in this case means {{Badass}} and/or CrazyAwesome in a FantasyKitchenSink.
* ''Manga/MaicchinguMachikoSensei'' had a very colorful homeroom and the quirkiness branched off into other teachers and members of the faculty as well.
* ''Manga/MinamiKe'' is becoming like this in later episodes, with its bigger emphasis on the three sisters' classmates.
* ''Misaki Number One''
* ''Manga/{{Mitsudomoe}}''
* ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'' has Class 1-A.
* ''Manga/{{Nichijou}}'': Emphasis on the ''wacky''.
* ''Anime/PaniPoniDash''
* ''Anime/{{Potemayo}}''
* ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'' has shades of this, especially in season 2, when the entire UnwantedHarem ends up in the same class together. And then there's [[{{Catgirl}} their]] [[OneOfTheKids teacher]].
* ''Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei''. SHAFT (who animated ''Anime/PaniPoniDash'' and ''Anime/NegimaSecondSeason'' as well) seem to do this trope a lot.
** Notable in that it has a [[AxCrazy psychotic]] [[DysfunctionJunction group]] [[{{Hikikomori}} of]] [[StalkerWithACrush dysfunc]][[SuperOCD tional]] [[SplitPersonality stu]][[ThePollyanna dents]], headed by a [[DrivenToSuicide suici]][[SuicideAsComedy dal]] [[TheEeyore teacher]], all [[PlayedForLaughs played for]] [[BlackComedy very dark]] [[{{Satire}} laughs]].
* ''Manga/SchoolRumble''. Oddly fitting with its name.
* ''Manga/{{Sketchbook}}''. Okay, it's an art club, but the effect is pretty much the same.
* The cast of ''Manga/SoulEater'' probably qualify. Not to mention their homeroom teacher is a MadScientist.

[[AC: ComicBooks]]
* In ''ComicBook/TheBeano'', the Bash Street Kids all had distinct personalities. Of course, there were only 9 of them (or 10 if you count Cuthbert).
* ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'' fit this trope when they have scenes in school.

[[AC:{{Literature}}]]
* [[Literature/HarryPotter Hogwarts]] is all about this.
* The ''Literature/WaysideSchool'' series, originally a set of books by Louis Sachar and since [[AnimatedAdaptation animated]].
* [[Literature/{{Discworld}} Susan Sto Helit]] is a proper young woman, who is entirely sober and rational and will not stand for even the usual amounts of silliness that a child usually displays. Her class is extremely well-behaved and sensible. She just happens to take them on literal trips through time and space without ever leaving the classroom. Because she's Death's granddaughter. But she keeps her past so quiet that her employer is surprised even to find out that she is a Duchess.
** Having said that, a few students ''do'' have personalities that push them into Wacky Homeroom territory: Vincent the overachiever, Penelope the BrainlessBeauty, and Jason the EnfantTerrible.
* Boy Meets Boy by David Levithan takes place in a high school that, among other things, have cheerleaders who do their routines on motorcycles.
* During the late eighties, Scholastic had a YA book series called ''Homeroom''. As it was ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin, it followed the misadventures of an 8th grade homeroom. It had all the stock YA characters: the AlphaBitch, JerkJock, CoolLoser, TheCheerleader, etc.
* ''Literature/TheWorstRoomInTheSchool'' was set in an overcrowded, out-of-date K-8 school centered around fifth grade class held in a converted store-room off the gym.

[[AC:LiveActionTV]]
* ''Series/ElChavoDelOcho'': The episodes in the classroom with Profesor Jirafales.
* ''Series/HeadOfTheClass''
* ''Series/WelcomeBackKotter''
* ''Series/SevenPeriodsWithMrGormsby''
* Brazilian show "Escolinha do Professor Raimundo" (and its more recent copycats) is (and are) centered around one such homeroom(s).
* ''Misaki Number One''
* ''Series/SavedByTheBell'' focused on one set of students and no main teachers, but they somehow always shared the same classes, subverting this trope. The first season however, played it completely straight since it was originally called ''Good Morning Miss Bliss'' and took place mostly inside one classroom.
* ''Series/{{Community}}''.
* TheSeventies BritCom ''Please, Sir!'' was set in a classroom full of [[DawsonCasting suspiciously over-age looking]] fifteen year olds.
* ''Series/GrangeHill'' was full of this trope, set in the ''GoodOldBritishComp in cockney London.

[[AC:VideoGames]]
* ''VideoGame/Disgaea3AbsenceOfJustice''
* ''VideoGames/{{Persona 3}}''
* The classroom this in ''VideoGame/TheMagicSchoolBus'' video games to an even greater degree then in the books or the show. ''Rainforest'' doubles down by turning the classroom into a miniature tropical jungle when you complete the main FetchQuest.

[[AC: Web Comics]]
* Largo's class in ''Webcomic/{{Megatokyo}}''. Not only is it [[http://megatokyo.com/strip/1162 taught]] by resident CrazyAwesome [=Cloudcuckoolander=] Largo, but some of it's more colorful members include a RobotGirl, an enigmatic ElegantGothicLolita who may very well be a DarkMagicalGirl, and a class representative who practices EnjoKosai and has an alcoholic dad. Also, the class's first field trip involved them taking on a horde of fanboys/zombies.
* ''{{Webcomic/Zoophobia}}'''s drama and film classes are as wacky, colorful and eccentric as they come.
** The drama class's [[CoolTeacher tea]][[MisplacedKindergartenTeacher cher]] calls her students [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext "sparkling turtle doves".]]

[[AC:WesternAnimation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/BubbleGuppies''
* ''WesternAnimation/TheMagicSchoolBus'' series. Ms. Frizzle is decidedly crazy and her class, while not as quirky as some other examples, are unique in their own ways.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}''
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Wayside}}''
* ''WesternAnimation/ClassOf3000''
* ''WesternAnimation/TheKidsFromRoom402''
