Although "traditionally" observed at short wavelengths, white dwarfs have displayed many surprising features when probed in the infrared. We present an overview of recent results from ground- and space-based near- to mid-infrared observations of white dwarfs. These include the discovery of many new candidate binary stars containing low mass stellar or sub-stellar companions from a sample of objects previously thought to be single white dwarfs, and Spitzer Space Telescope observations that suggest that dust is common in the environs of white dwarfs in cataclysmic variables.
