Some vintage TV shows prominently feature classic summer scenes and episodes, like in "Mama Cast," an episode of "The King of Queens," where Doug decides to buy a Dr. Frosty ice cream truck. He soon realizes the grass isn't always greener on the other side when he's intimidated and run off the road by a rival ice cream truck.
In the season six premiere of "Party of Five," Eldest brother and de facto father Charlie marries his partner Kristen at the beach. There are few things more perfectly summery and nice to look at than a wedding with the Pacific Ocean roaring in the background.
Even the unhappy Bundy family can feel the hypnotic lure of warm weather, and the premiere of Season Four of "Married... with Children" is set on Labor Day, grasping at the last slice of summer. During a cookout, Al is uncharacteristically joyful, with a long speech about the true meaning of Labor Day.
The Season Five premiere of "The Steve Harvey Show" finds all of the teachers on this sitcom returning to work after some very eventful summer breaks. Music teacher Mr. Hightower both celebrates and laments the impending arrival of his 40th birthday, while Regina relays her very romantic Caribbean vacation.
In the Season Three finale of "Dawson's Creek," the episode "True Love" revolves around the sunny season and killing time in a memorable way. The Season Four debut, "Coming Home," is a continuation of the previous episode, appropriately full of beaches, outdoor parties, and romantic dalliances.
