The Lubbock house from the 1980s sitcom “Just the Ten of Us,” which was a spin-off of “Growing Pains,” can be found in Santa Clarita, California. The same home was featured prominently in the 1991 Christina Applegate comedy “Don’t Tell Mom The Babysitter’s Dead.”

In the early 1990s, in an effort to capitalize on the popularity of “Beverly Hills, 90210,” Aaron Spelling’s production company introduced a second series into the 90210 universe, known as “Melrose Place.” The show inhabited the same universe, with characters overlapping for special guest appearances. The original series ran from 1992 to 1999.
The famous apartment building from the show was supposedly located at 4616 Melrose Place in Los Angeles. It turned out the producers made just a minor change to the real apartment’s address, which is located at 4616 Greenwood Place, in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles. The building is known as the El Pueblo Apartments. There is also a real Melrose Place in West Hollywood, but you won’t find much there besides some commercial businesses on a short street.
As for the courtyard and interiors seen in the show, those were filmed on a sound stage. There is no pool at the actual El Pueblo location and if you head past the front gates, you’ll quickly realize the rest of the building bears little resemblance to the show.
