You have to set and reset DisplayFunction. << Graphics`Graphics`; pp = PolarPlot[Cos[t], {t, -(Pi/2), Pi/2}, PlotStyle -> Hue[0.4], DisplayFunction -> Identity]; pm = PolarPlot[Sin[t], {t, -(Pi/2), Pi/2}, PlotStyle -> Hue[0.6], PlotLabel -> {" ψ- "}, PlotRange -> All, DisplayFunction -> Identity]; Show[pp, pm, DisplayFunction -> $DisplayFunction]; But notice that you lost the PlotLabel because overall plot options are only picked up from the first plot. I did the same plot in DrawGraphics but decided to use a Frame, a background color, and put Axes in but very light and behind the two circles. Here everything can be done in one plot statement and you don't have to bother with DisplayFunction or worry over which options will be picked up.
