There are 2 young brothers, played by Dennis Ross and Lonnie Thomas and maybe both sharing this room. Vintage steel bed(s).

I’ve checked it briefly some time for my Western blog (rating 5), but don’t remember much.

Rating at least ~3-4 for now. Boys are quite young.

6 yo Susan Olsen (Cindy in The Brady Bunch) and 8 yo Mike Durkin sharing this room. Wooden beds and colorful sheets, both quite unusual for a Western.

Night shirts and bib overalls (boy only).

Also on my Western blog, rating 5 and my bib overalls blog, rating 4. They also both starred in s15e6 (Western blog) but I don’t remember bedrooms there.

Often young boys and girls used to share one bed. In s14e14, 2 kids, probably boys sharing one bed (coming soon).

Main entry, rating 5

Comment: Johnny Whitaker (pictured) and his half-brother Sid (credited as cousin Sidney on IMDb, played by Joshua Hill Lewis) probably sharing this room. Nice wooden bed. Low posts.

I don’t like Johnny Whitaker with his red curls and don’t like much this musical version.

So I don’t remember more bedroom scenes. Probably there aren’t many.

Also on my bib overalls blog (Tom+Huck+others, rating 6).

For the bedroom rating ~6 as well.

Comment:
Oliver Robinson, around 15 yo but looking younger (also in Don’t Go to Sleep (1982), rating 4 +sister) I think alone in this bedroom in s1e15, segment Monsters! (1986).

I thought, I already had an entry.

I haven’t checked more episodes, yet.

Also on my bib overalls blog (incl. Bill Mumy in 1961, rating 5) and soon on my pigtails blog.

I like the 80s.

For now rating 5. Probably even higher for other episodes.

Comment:
I thought, I already had an entry, but I was wrong. I recently have checked all color episodes of this series for my other blogs.

Pic 1 is from s19e13 showing a typical brass Western bed. Not sure if the boy (William Shriver ?) sleeps here.

Pic 2 showing a completely different lower bed in s17e11. The room somehow looks modern and colorful. Yellow.

Pic 3 below showing I think a girl (Erica Petal) and a boy (Craig Huxley) sharing a bed in s15e14. Maybe also brothers (and sisters) sharing a bed in other episodes.

One of the best Western series. But I have to check the b&w episodes as well.

Many entries on my other blogs.

For bedrooms rating ~4-5 for now.

Comment:
At least 9 or 10 yo Colin Petersen in a wooden cabin, probably a single bed but also with a friend together, I think outside in the hay, but with separate sheets.

Pic 3 below is I think from Smiley Gets a Gun (1959), looks like in a hospital.

Not bad, also on my bib overalls blog (rating 6), but he don’t wear overalls but pants with suspenders.

Rating 4-5.

Comment:
The family has 9 kids. I think 7 boys and 2 girls. I think usually 4 boys in one tiny, half of an attic room. So there are at least 2 or 3 more bedrooms. The 2 sisters, around 14+5 yo also shown sharing a bed. Maybe some of the younger brothers also sleep in the girls’ room. Most boys are around 10-11 yo. Oldest ones 12-14. Youngest boy ~5 yo.

Great movie with also other scenes of interest including shirtless scenes, a chubby boy, a boy in bib overalls and others in aprons.

Nice, Waltons-like family and table. But could be better.

Rating 6-7.

More infos and pics on my bib overalls, just updated, rating 6.

Comment:
Some orphaned boys, at least 5 boys including 12 or 13 yo Nat played by Michael Caloz (“Escape From Wildcat Canyon” 1998) in night shirts in this dorm. Set in 1871. Nice pillow fight.

I don’t know the complete movie, yet. But looks verys interesting. Also nice schoolhouse scenes (but probably not showing overalls) and Christmas plot.

Rating maybe 6-7 for now.

Not to be confused with the (related) Canadian TV series of the same year starring Corey Sevier, which also needs to be checked. I also have the 1940 b&w movie, which was the 2nd remake on my sailor suit blog (boy rating 3). Novel by Louisa May Alcott, sequel of Little Women.

At least this older boy in this room. There are some other kids, but I don’t know who sleeps in what room. An 11 yo girl has a younger brother. Farm setting (here ?)

One cabin has around 4-5 beds, but I think grown-ups live there. Was there also a hospital later?

Although I don’t like the 70s, rating 5-6 for now.

Also on my overalls blog (f,m rating 4).
