Comment: Tommy Kirk ((“Old Yeller”), currently is a dog under the sheets, left bed) and his younger brother, played by 9 or 10 yo Kevin Corcoran sharing this room. Nice wooden beds.

Novel by Felix Salten “Bambi (1942)”. There are also later movies with that title. Please also check “The Shaggy D.A.” on my bib overalls blog rating 3.

I don’t remember the complete movie and have to check it the next broadcasting.

Looks very interesting. I like classical movies and Disney films. Originally in b&w. Also to check the other movies and Shaggy (1948).

Rating 8-9 for now.

Country: UK
Who in bedroom: Boys. Girls ~7-16 yo
Kind of beds: bunk bed, separate beds/rooms
Available on DVD: yes ?

Rating: 5/10 ?
Rating: *****
Comment: Different boys and girls, different age, in different series. Mostly in single rooms for his/her own. Often good and colorful painted rooms (like in Schloss Einstein).

Tracer Beaker Returns (rating 4) is currently running, daily on work days. So I checked some random other episodes of the other series and seasons.

Pic 1 showing a wooden bunk bed in s1e16 (of the main series) showing I think Zac and Ryan (Zac in bottom bunk). Pic 2 from s3e13, Pic 3 from series The Dumping Ground (2013) s1e4 showing 2 girls in a room, and pic 4 the camouflage room from s5e16. I don’t know the name of the other actors.

See also my bib overalls blog (girls in overalls), rating 4 and also soon my sailor suit blog (boy in a sailor suit, entry Dumping Ground, rating 4).

I have to check more episodes, but I prefer US series.

Rating 5 for now.




Biography of Tsar Alexei
Year: 1991
Year in film: 1918
Country: Soviet Union, UK
Who in bedroom: Alexei ~14
Kind of beds: single bed
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Rating: 5/10
Rating: *****
Comment: Aleksei Logunov as Prince Alexei in this wrought iron bed. Scene at 47 minutes.

I checked this bizarre movie for my sailor suit blog (check my Alexei Romanov and Rasputin films list). Although pictured on the DVD cover (rated 7-8 in advance) I haven’t found any sailor suit scenes in this movie but had to check it at high speed.

Aka “The Assassin of the Tsar”. Interesting bed and props and scene; handsome actor.

But no siblings in this room. There are better Alexei movies. But I haven’t noticed any better bedrooms elsewhere.

Starring Malcolm McDowell.

Rating 4-5.

Tracy Beaker Returns


Kids series, 39 ep in 3 seasons
Year: 2010-2012
Year in film: 2010s
Country: UK
Who in bedroom: Boys. Girls
Kind of beds: separate rooms
Available on DVD: yes ?
I own: no
Rating: 4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: 3 boys (but probably 2 visitors) shown in this room and also girls in other rooms in this care home in ep s1e10. This series is currectly running daily on German Kika. This must be the room of 17 yo Frank (Chris Slater), I think on the right. I think at least Tyler (boy) and friend Rick sharing a room.

Novel by Jacqueline Wilson. There are also 4 other series and one movie.

I missed most of this episode yesterday, so I don’t know exactly who sleeps where. Probably Johnny, Rick and Frank each in one separate room. Also Gus, Harry and Carmen. But probably at least 2 girls in one room (Lizanne and/ or Faith + Elektra). Also younger kids are shown.

I have to check this the next episodes and also the other series. I prefer US series and more siblings together in a room.

Rating 4 for now.

At least 2 twin brothers sharing a bunk bed in the first series (Zac+ short haired Ryan), Zac on bottom.

Also at least one girl (main character Tracy) in bib overalls (soon on my overalls blog).

Update: I checked more episodes and series, please check

The Story of Tracy Beaker (rating 5) and also all my other blogs.


A Present for Santa Claus


B&w short film
Year: 1947
Year in film: 1940s
Country: USA
Who in bedroom: boy+girl
Kind of beds: separate beds
Available on DVD: yes ?
I own: no
Rating: 5/10
Rating: *****
Comment: Young brother and sister sharing this bedroom. Beds close to each other, boy on the left. Also shown from a different angle as their mother entering the room.

I previously found this 8 minute short film by coincidence during research on YouTube. I didn’t realize that’s a short film.

Maybe someone like it. I don’t now the names of the actors as completely uncredited on IMDb. Also hard to tell their age, maybe both around 8 yo?

Rating 5-6.

Firstborn (1984)


Drama starring Corey Haim
Year: 1984
Year in film: 1980s
Country: USA
Who in bedroom: Brian ~13, Jake ~16
Kind of beds: bunk bed
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Rating: 9/10
Rating: *********
Comment: Canadian-born 12 or 13 yo Corey Haim (as Brian, top bunk, also lying flat on his back) and his older brother I think Christopher Collet sharing this bedroom and wooden bunk bed. His older brother entering this room later.

I almost had forgotten to add this movie. I found it in 2010, the year Corey Haim died.

I only noticed one brief scene at about 35 minutes.

But I like bunk beds, the 80s and Corey Haim.

So rating 9 for this scene. I don’t had the time to watch this complete movie at slow speed, so I will recheck it later.

Comment: Boys and girls in different bedrooms in different movies.

First 2 pics must be from episode 20 “Le chemin des étoiles” (1998) showing 10 or 11 yo Kevin Goffette. There are at least 2 steel bunk beds and one separate bed on where Goffette is sitting on. His film mom is in jail and I think he visits his relatives (cousin). I don’t know of any siblings but I don’t know who sleeps in the bunk beds and if they are all used.

Pic 3 showing 2004 episode “Adrien” obviously starring Renaud Gallissian. Pic 4 showing episode “Frères de sang” (what means blood brothers) with a wooden bunk bed. I think Yoann Denaive and Axel Moine.

I don’t know/don’t remember all episodes but there are definitely more kids (boys and girls) and so more bedrooms. So I have to recheck it later.

For more infos see my overalls blog (boy+girl) rating 6.

Update: One good bedroom (2 brothers, separate beds) in s4e9 (rating 9), previously here rating 6



Keeper’n til Liverpool


Kids film
Year: 2010
Year in film: 2000s
Country: Norway
Who in bedroom: Jo 13 yo
Kind of beds: single bed
Available on DVD: yes
I own: yes, partly TV recording
Rating: 3/10
Rating: ***
Comment: I think Ask von der Hagen as 13 yo Jo (but younger looking) on his bed and his friend on the right. English title “The Liverpool Goalie”. Many awards. Had been aired yesterday.

I missed some few parts at the beginning. Plot isn’t so bad. Some handsome actors (sadly not the main character). But rather few interesting scenes. One imaginary shower scene (but nothing much to see here). Also rather few soccer scenes and no interesting shiny shorts.

Modern bedroom, not bad but no siblings.

Rating 3.

Arrested Development (2003)

Who in bedroom: George-Michael ~15, Maeby ~14 (s1)
Kind of beds: high sleeper, bunk bed
Available on DVD: yes

Rating: 6/10
Rating: ******
Comment: I think Michael Cera as George-Michael and Alia Shawkat (who plays his cousin Maeby) in this wooden high sleeper and a bed underneath. Also a real bunk bed in the prison. Episode s3e7 Prison Break-in. Pic taken from the

I don’t know this series and found it by coincidence.

The wooden bed also appeared earlier, some good pics at the wikia in s1e7 and s2e14 and also showing Ann Veal who plays his girl friend. There are also flashback episodes with younger kids but not sure if bedrooms are shown. Probably there are also other bedrooms.

I can’t say much more yet but I like this bedroom. Michael Cera and others also wearing a sailor suit, for more infos see my other blog, rating 6.

For this bedroom rating 6-7. Sadly he obviously has no siblings.
