Pigtail occurence: very low ?
Rating:  5/10
Rating: *****
Comment: I think some few girls in pigtails (at least 3) including this at school in s1e5 at 15 minutes. One blonde girl in thick and quite long, another ones in thinner pigtails.

I’m currently rewatching season 1 of this nice series (mainly for my bib overalls blog, rating 7).

The main characters are 2 boys and there’s also a tomboy with short hair. So I don’t remember other or even better scenes. Maybe none in season 3. But could be in season 2 (I don’t own). I think most women also wore short hair, what is quite surprisingly.

Rating 5, although few scenes.

Comment: At least Tarah Nutter (unknown age, probably in her 20s) in thick, long and blonde pigtails and a red Bikini. Pigtails look quite unusual, almost like a wig.

Also a young man in blue Adidas shorts (shiny shorts blog, rating 3).

I don’t like thisk pigtails and prefer younger actresses.

So rating 2-3 only. Good movie, though.

Rating:  4/10 ?

Comment: As announced this latest version of Anne of Green Gables starring Amybeth McNulty. Maybe also other teen girls or women in pigtails, but I haven’t seen anyone, yet. Anne often wearing a flat hat. Nice costumes, also of the boys. Jerry (Aymeric Jett Montaz) probably also wore bib overalls in the barn next to an leather apron.

It also includes the famous pigtail pulling scene in ep 3 (pic 2). Better pic and GIF here

The actress is a bit older, around 16 in season 1. Anne in the novels is 11 yo. But in most movies she’s older as well. But I don’t like much this actress.

I don’t know the complete series, yet.

Rating 4-5 for now only. I have to recheck this later. Also for my other blogs. Earlier versions collected here

Comment: One girl in dark blonde, long pigtails in ep. III (1977). The sketch is called Feuerwehr (Die H.S. zwo). Also part of the 1997 series.

Has been aired around Christmas. I have seen it before but very long time ago, as there’s mainly another episode aired on Christmas. Maybe some more girls or women in other episodes?

Nice pigtails but few good scenes. She also often had her pigtails hidden behind the objects.

Rating 4-5 for now.

Rating: ****
Comment: Some girls, especially at school, some in short, few others in long and one in dark, very long pigtails outside school with pigtails swinging at her front. Main character, 6 yo Annemarie in blonde, unbraided pigtails. She also cut off parts of her hair. Pic 1 from ep 4, pics 2+3 from ep 3. Rather few school scenes and ep 4-6 has a different actress as 10 yo main character. Needs to be checked more carefully.

Has been aired around Christmas, but I missed most parts this time. I have seen and checked it earlier, but long time ago.

Also very nice costumes and both boys and girls in sailor suits and Lederhosen (other blog, rating 9.


Update: Anne of Green Gables (2016)


As announced, some more pics of this nice movie which has been aired at Christmas.

There are 2 girls being pulled at their pigtails. Also one blonde. And another angle of the redhaired Anne (rear view pulling, see main entry).

I think also some few more girls at school in pigtails or braids. Also in sailor dresses.

The 2017 movie starring Amybeth McNulty also coming soon.

Comment: Obviously Gina Gillespie in very long, dark blonde pigtails pictured in s6e8 (1961). Probably some more girls and women (seasons 1-5 are in b&w). She also starred in s5e26, but I haven’t seen this one (probably similar). I also have her in Law of the Plainsman, rating 7 (b&w).


Also some Indians in pigtails like Joseph Vitale in s3e8 and others in s3e7.

Very good and even in color.

Also soon on my Western blog, rating ~7-8.

Rating ~8. But needs to be rechecked for other actresses and episodes.

Comment: Some few girls in pigtails including this girl with blonde looped ones, I think 13 yo Charlotte Lorenzen. Also some few others at school and elsewhere including blonde buns (young girl), short dark and regular pigtails. And the sister of the older Hans, set around 8 years later in the 2nd half of the movie. But rather few scenes.

Also on my sailor suit blog (boy, rating 3) and soon on my bedroom blog, rating ~4.

Quite interesting movie, fresh and handsome kids, but only in the first half.

Could be better. I don’t like much looped pigtails.

Rating 3-4 only.

Update of Anne of Green Gables (2016) coming next (aired on Christmas).
