The world of sitcoms has gifted many of us with unforgettable memories. But let’s not forget that budget constraints often made two unique sitcom universes cross paths by sharing the same sets. As discussed on an entertainment forum, here are ten sitcoms that used recycled sets.
1. The Office and Scrubs
The Office and Scrubs seem worlds apart but have surprisingly shared the same set at one point. While The Office mainly takes place in the Dunder Mifflin offices, we see the characters venture into the outer world now and then. In one episode, Jim and Pam are at a hospital which is the same one that served as the main set for Scrubs.
A viewer claims that the location from Scrubs also used to be My Wife and Kids‘ set.
2. Full House and Friends
Full House and Friends are two beloved mainstream sitcoms. However, they share not only the same status but also the sets. Both series are filmed on the Warner Bros. Studio backlot, on the exact same soundstage. A user points out that the upstairs hallway from the Tanner house became the hallway between the two central apartments on Friends.
3. Grace Under Fire and the King of Queens
Grace Under Fire’s set became home to Doug and Carrie Heffernan on The King of Queens. However, in another case, a member thinks that in the Halloween episode of That ’70s Show, the door Fez knocks on where he gets an apple instead of candy is Grace Kelly’s front door.
4. The Waltons and Gilmore Girls
Who would’ve thought that The Waltons and Gilmore Girls are more similar than meets the eye? The Warner Bros. backlot strikes again as The Waltons’ family home, featured in nearly every episode, can be recognized as the exterior of the Dragonfly Inn in Gilmore Girls.
5. The Nanny and the Powers That Be
The Nanny’s set was actually originally from a short-lived sitcom, The Powers That Be. Moreover, the two shows shared a similar plot: a nanny-like figure moving in and disrupting an elite White Anglo-Saxon Protestant family’s life.
6. Hogan Family and Stey by Step
Some clever viewers could catch on to the similar sets for Hogan Family and Stey by Step. However, that’s not all. Many locations inside the Hogan house were also used on Family Matters. One person points out that the layout of the kitchens was the same but with different wallpaper colors.
7. Boy Meets World and According to Jim
One person believes that According to Jim used the same living room as Boy Meets World, except the placement of the staircase and the front door was switched around. Another user adds that Smart Guy used the same set as Boy Meets World in an early episode.
8. The Jeffersons, Good Times, and More!
Who can forget the apartment set for The Jeffersons? It also used to be Evans’s apartment on Good Times. Later, it was changed to be Ann Romano and her daughters’ apartment on One Day At A Time. Finally, you can spot the set in All In The Family episodes.
9. The Golden Girls and It Takes Two
Did you know that the kitchen from The Golden Girls was reused to be part of a short-lived show titled It Takes Two? Audiences find it trippy to see the kitchen door open to a dining room in It Takes Two when they’re expecting to see the living room from The Golden Girls.
10. Saved by the Bell and That’s So Raven
Coming-of-age comedies are a staple for many growing up. However, get ready to be blown away as the two shows, Saved by the Bell and TThat’sSo Raven, were filmed at the same high school with the same name!
