Year: 1993
Year in film: 1980s ?
Country: UK
Who in bedroom: 3 or 4 boys ~11-12
Kind of beds: single+ bunk bed
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Rating: 6/10
Rating: ******
Comment: I think there are 4 boys, but I only have seen a bunk bed (or high sleeper) on the left and a separate bed. The room is too small for a 4th bed, so either on has a room for his own, or one boy is just a friend or relative.

Interesting room and scene including a changing scene, but unfortunately, I haven’t noticed any other bedroom scenes, only this one at daytime.

Rating 6. 1985 novel by Mary Wesley, so maybe set in the 80s.

Comment: 10 yo brother Jerry (Simon James, red shirt, upper bunk) and his film twin sister Louise (Kate McNeil) sharing this room and dark wooden bunk bed. Pic from s1e22. Also he shown in bed in s1e14.

A room of a Japanese girl is shown in s1e12. Also some more locations, like a tent (boy with a dark bowlcut and round glasses in s1e25).

Good series and handsome kids, but I prefer the 60s Classic (rating 6, 2 brothers).

Also on my shiny shorts blog, rating 9.

Rating: 5/10
Rating: *****
Comment: Canadian Michael Caloz at least in pic 1 in a modern, colorful bedroom. Scene at 22 minutes. Not sure about pic 2,  according to my notes of my VHS this must also be from this movie but I haven’t found it online. A boy at least shirtless in this loft of a cabin.  Reminds me of much earlier settings like LHOTP. Who can help here?

I also have him in Whisker (1997) rating 6.

Rating 4-5 for pic 1 and 3-4 for the “bedroom” of pic 2. Obviously no siblings. Movie is quite poor.

Comment: Bill Switzer in this bedroom. He has a younger sister in the series, around 9 yo, but I think she has a room for her own.

I have briefly checked this series and the 1991 series starring Omri Katz, mainly for shiny shorts scenes. I haven’t found any, just boxer shorts. (Rating 10 in Dallas).

Rating 4-5 for now.

The original series is much better and Omri even more handsome (rating 10, bedrooms there rating 6.)

Extra Zigda

Sitcom, 15 ep
Year: 1998
Year in film: ~1998
Country: France
Who in bedroom: Karine ~8, Jonathan ~10
Kind of beds: bunk bed
Available on DVD: no
I own: no
Rating: 4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: First I thought, that 2 sisters would share this room and bunk bed, but the older girl is the alien lady Zigda. Karine (Clémence La Fleurière), maybe around 8 or 9 yo sleeps on the lower bunk and her brother Jonathan (Morgan Vasner) on the upper bunk. Pic from ep 11. Both together showing in a different episode. The wall paper and props look more like for babies.

(Older) brothers and sisters sharing a bunk bed is quite rare.

But there are better rooms, scenes and kids in other series and movies.

Rating 4-5.

Also on my bib overalls blog (boy, rating 5).

Comment: Samuel Costa and another person in nice, wooden beds. I think, he don’t have siblings. Maybe a friend or grown-up? I also remember another, colorful, room with his friends and also inside a tent.

I don’t remember the complete movie. Based on the 1980 comics by Ziraldo.

Another one from my VHS and also on my shiny shorts blog (rating 4). Soon on my pigtails blog, rating 6.

Nice room, good movie, so rating 6-7.

Comment:
A young boy, I think Benjamin Brock (“Jack Frost”) in this nice bedroom with a big, brown wooden bed. I think he has an older brother, but not in this room.

Has been aired around Christmas. Typical funny family movie like most Disney movies and movies starring Robin Williams.

Not bad. The bedroom neither. But young boy and I think few good bedroom scenes.

Rating 4-5 only.

Also soon on my bib overalls blog (young ladies, brief scenes rating 3).

Comment:
Blonde Lee Norris (as 8 yo Chuckie, top bunk) and Aaron Michael Metchik as 12 yo Steven (season 1 only, long dark hair) sharing this room and wooden bunk bed. Pic from s1e3.

I have to check more episodes, but this looks very interesting, although I don’t like Lee Norris with his glasses.

I think not officially on DVD.

Also on my bib overalls blog (rating 4 for now).

Rating 9 for now for this bedroom.

Comment:
There are (at least) 3 boys, probably brothers in this room. The 2 pictured from a colorful red metal bunk bed and an older teen boy, shirtless on the right in a separate bed.

I found a very short clip, showing the younger boy picking up a sticky paper handkerchief from the floor and holding it to the nose of the other boy pictured.

I don’t know the title and can’t say anything more. Might be Spanish, Mexican or similar or even just Spanish dubbed.

Who knows the title? Maybe from the 1990s (or even late 80s or early 2000s ?) Looks rather like a TV series or maybe even just a commercial?

Rating 6 for now.

Update: Cebollitas

cebollitas-bed46

I also found 2 boys for the first time sharing a room in episode 46. But obviously not brothers but friends.

On the floor I think Diego who obviously owns this room and on the right young Gamuza in shorts or underwear who is allowed to use his bed.

I have the same room in the main entry. I prefer the modern, colorful other rooms.

Main entry, rating 4
