Whenever there is a shot of Keith's room, they always show the clock. What I want to know did the clock actually work or was it just for show and, another thing I want to know about are the posters, what were the posters about, were they just the average posters that an average teenager boy would have in his room?

This has been puzzling me even when I used to watch the Partridge Family in the seventies. There is one last thing that I am curious about, why was only one curtain only ever closed in Danny and Chris' room and, the clock never worked in their room either, it always said the same time.

I'm pretty sure one of the posters was of Jimi Hendrix, one of DC's personal faves.


Very Happy

In 'This is my Song' when Shirley asks Keith to write 'the worlds worst song' I sure the clock says about 7:30 but Danny and Chris are in bed. I know there's no way I would have gotten any of my children to go to bed that early at age 10 Laughing

I was quite often in bed at 7:30, when I was ten but I was allowed to stay up late on Wednesday nights, when MASH was on then I went to bed at nine but when I was fourteen I went to bed at 8:00 but now I go to bed when I'm - which funnily enough is 7:00 maybe it's because I'm older and I need a lot more sleep than I did when I was younger.

Does anybody else know what, the posters are in the on Keith's bedroom walls?

Yeh i'm pretty sure Jimi Hendrix poster is in there, a psychadelic one too. I guess they were the average boy kinda posters; a boy who loves rock n roll and is a bit of a hippie, sure.

the whole bedtime thing, i always notice when its late and Danny and Keith are talking in Dannys room (shirleys bday with the pin and the very last episode) and chris isn't in bed!

Here's my question....in Danny & Chris' room, which is supposed to be on the second floor. There is a huge bank safe in their room. Now if this were a real house, how in the world would they get a safe that size in that room? How would they support the weight? Yeah i know it is a TV show....but c'mon..... d'oh! Anxious

Speaking of bedrooms, I've always wondered how they manipulate Keith's bed so he can sink into it in "I Can Get It For You Retail." The sound effects are as though he's falling into a beanbag chair. The visual effect is excellent--it looks as though the bed is solid until he tries to sit on it, but I wonder what they did. Any thoughts? Just two foam cushions cut in half so he can fall through the gap?

I have seen this episode "I Can Get It For You At Retail" on Bravo, a few years ago. I'm sure that when Keith sat on the bed it sounded as thought the sound effect was cardboard boxes falling down. I don't know what anybody else thinks, maybe I was hearing things.
