Comment: At least Marny Kennedy in rather short pigtails. Pictured in s1e20.

I think she rarely had pigtails but often a ponytail.

I somehow like her. Great series, but needs to be rechecked, also for other girls. Also in pigtails in “The Saddle Club”, 2 years later, next to other girls.

So rating 6-7 for now.

Also on my shiny shorts blog, including girls and her (rating 6).

Comment: At least one girl at school in quite long, modern, blonde pigtails. Maybe some more girls and/or women?

Has been aired some time ago and I haven’t seen it completely.

More infos on my bedroom blog, rating 6.

For pigtails, rating at least 5-6, but I assume rather few good scenes. The darkhaired, younger main character don’t have pigtails.

–Comment: At least 12 yo Mackenzie Foy at school in raw denim overalls and dark pigtails. I think rather few good scenes as she also has open hair. The pigtails are rather modern, woven to the back of her head.

On my overalls blog rating 6 (also boys in overalls).

There are better series.

–Available on DVD: yes

–Pigtail occurence: medium- ?
–Rating: 5/10 ?
–Rating: *****
–Comment: One girl in dark, long pigtails (pic at 9 minutes), not sure about her name; is this Dana Vávrová (1967-2009) ? Probably not the main character Rozmaryny. Also other girl(s) in unbraided pigtails. The plot is also about cutting off and shaving the hair of a dark blonde girl but not involving pigtails, so no tagging. Also at least one blonde girl in long pigtails at school at the beginning.

Quite interesting and funny movie, also swimming scenes, but I don’t like the 70s.

Rating 5-6. Correct title: Jak se točí Rozmarýny.

–Comment: At least this young girl at school (PE) rope jumping in long, blonde pigtails. So pigtails flying up. Also in large, looped pigtails.

Has been aired yesterday, but I only have checked it briefly before on the mediathek.

Interesting movie and plot, mainly about boys. Nice PE shorts (including red and white), but not shiny.

Rating 5-6. English title: Sugar Sand.
