It'd be impossible to create a floorplan map of any old Hanna-Barbera shows that used so much recycled / looped animation. Even as a kid, I used to think..."Either Fred Flintsone has a mile-long hallway with evenly-spaced windows and end tables, or one room that's just a big circle."

Same with Shaggy and Scooby anytime they were running away from anything. There was always like three pages of dialogue while they were sprinting from the creep-of-the-week full-speed past a grandfather clock, painting, grandfather clock, painting, grandfather clock, painting, grandfather clock, painting, grandfather clock and painting. Those creepy old hotels had infinite loop hallways the size of bloody particle accelerators.

Out of all of those Seinfeld's was the most believable.  Meaning both the floor plan and that he could have actually afforded to live there.

The Simpsons house is huge. I consider Springfield's location to essentially be Oregon (And if you go by the character names, geography and Matt Groenig's past, it certainly bears much Oregonian influence), then that house is also ridiculously expensive. Being a nuclear safety inspector must pay pretty well.

What about the Brady Bunch or the Partridge Family, or how about a layout of the M*A*S*H* camp, or 1313 Mockingbird Lane, or the Adams Family, or the Cleaver house?

Monica lived in a rent controlled apartment.  It was her grandmother's apartment and the landlord still believed that Nana was living there.

Yes nowadays, but this was the 90s, man! People had jobs and stuff back then. Also he had a radio show, and was well, well past his doctoral dissertation years.

Good Heavens! Th-this is a palace! How c-- how can, how in the world can you afford to live in a house like this, Simpson?

Frasiers apartment makes no sense. The Master bedroom has one tiny window but the en-suite bathroom has a huge outside wall with no windows? Ditto Daphne's bedroom. Was the architect a vampire or just allergic to daylight?

If any real New York landlord held that property, he would be checking up on the grandmother regularly to see if she had kicked the bucket yet.    That loft was worth a fortune.

I always thought that the two main apartments were at the ends of the hall. It could stretch on for about 6 per level.

Thanks, dude.  Interesting.  I thought the prices would be higher than that.

Frasier's apartment is (a) too high off the ground (Seattle has a cap on building heights) and (b) by the position of the landmarks visible from the balcony has to be right next to the TV towers on Queen Anne Hill, not the best neighborhood to be in, even if you could build a high rise apartment building.

Yeah, no kidding. The Simpsons are portrayed as working class usually, but damn that house is huge by working class standards. It's more of an upper middle class house. Homer must be up to his eyeballs in debt.

About 20 years ago they actually built the house in Las Vegas as a promotional stunt. It was friggin' huge pretty big!

The Friends Apartment is big because they have to be able to fit three cameras in there. The Simpsons house is huge because they have like three hundred animators and they need a lot of room.

The5thElement: List fails without Tony and Carmela Soprano's house.


Created already responded in the comments:

Inaki.
The house from "The Cosby Show" was very beautiful and coherent but I think that in "The fresh Prince" only the living room and the kitchen (and sometimes part of the yard and the pool-souse) has appeared throuhg the show.
If I make something the rest will b invented/imaginated.
.
I want to make the next ones:
In TV:
- The houses from "Gossip Girl" (Surely the Humphrey's loft and the house of Chuck Bass)
- Hallywell Manor from "Charmed"
- The suburban houses from "Roseanne" and "Married with children"
- The bachelor pads of Don Drapper from "Mad Men" and Barney Stinson from "HIMYM"
- The house of Tony Soprano from "The Sopranos"
- The vintage house from "Bewitched"
- The house from "The nanny"
- The bar from "Cheers"
In Movies:
- The apartment of "The apartment" (Billy Wilder 1960)
- The house from "Psycho" (Alfred Hitchcock 1960)
- The house from "The party" (Blake Edwards 1968) One of my favourites !
- Both apartments from "Down with love" (Peyton Reed 2003)
- The house from "Home alone" (Chirs Columbus 1990)

That would be a project if I had enough spare money.  A Guest House based on the Flintstone place.

That house was 2,200 square feet. Good sized, but not huge. Sadly the Simpsons how has since been stripped of its Simpson-ness and resold.

nnnnnno, not so much. not anymore. most of the new construction(anything completed since 2000-ish) has been 20-30 stories, and there were a number of 30+ apartment buildings BEFORE that.

but outside of the downtown core, there's not so many, but for a couple of huge old towers built in the 60s.
 
2013-03-04 03:49:19 PM
Good luck if you ever try to figure out the house on The Waltons.  Near as I can figure the kitchen is built at a 45 degree angle to the rest of the house and the second floor doesn't even try to match up with the exterior.
