Comment: Lisa Loring in dark long pigtails. Around 6 to 8 yo, so much younger than Christina Ricci in the 1991 remake (rating 5). She also starred in the 1977 movie “Halloween with the New Addams Family” so around 18 yo, also in pigtails and blue dress (color movie).

I don’t remember all episodes and don’t know the episode title of the pic. Pic 2 from s2e19 showing more of her long hair.

Very good and funny series. For pigtails rating 6-7. She’s very young and small even in season 2. And I think rather few scenes of the kids.

Comment: Christina Ricci in long, dark pigtails in either the 1991 movie or the 1993 sequel. Maybe other supporting actresses as well? I think modern setting but of course no modern clothes of her. Also as Indian girl.

I thought of spooky, seeing the long, looped pigtails of Paula in Schloss Einstein and considering spooky, I have to think of The Addams Family.

Somehow I don’t like her and prefer the classics 1964 b&w series, coming soon. Horror movies and series are a great source for pigtails. For now I only have “The Bad Seed (1956)”, rating 9.

Rating 5-6 for this one.

Happy Halloween!

Comment: I think this is Camilla Belle in long, thin wet (and also dry) pigtails. But also open hair. Maybe other girls as well? At least about 3 girls in ponytails.

I found this by coincidence / during research.

I haven’t seen the complete movie yet.

Rating 6 for now. I prefer farm and earlier settings.

Story 4: More than 2 pigtails (Schloss Einstein)


Next to mainly African hairstyles like rasta braids, twists, cornrows and similar (also see Our Gang), more than 2 braids are quite unusual, I think.

Pics 1+2 showing Thekla of Schloss Einstein in ep 148 and 149. 2 regular, thicker pigtails maybe more at the rear and 2 or more thinner ones in front of that, more from above.

Pic 2 showing Anna next to Thekla in rather red hair and Paula on the front with looped pigtails. Pic 3 showing the long loops of Paula in ep 158. I don’t like that.

Pic 4 showing I think Louisa on the right with 2 rows of braids at each side and rather ponytails. On the left Elizabeth, this time not in pigtails but somehow wild plaited. Ep 149.


Update 4 pigtails even better also in Fabrixx (rating 6)


An Indian teen boy in 3 pigtails in Susannah of the Mounties.

A young girl in 4 or more pigtails in Dilhiroj.

A teen boy in Like Mike (2002), 4 rasta braids.

(Teen) girl in The Wonder Years (1988) s2e15, 3 rare pigtails


Update: Schloss Einstein


Some more interesting girls and scenes in this series. Again all pics from the compilation DVDs.

Pic 1 showing I think Monika (played by Franziska Stürmer) in ep 100 (season 2).

Pic 2 showing little Emely (Paula Schramm) helping braiding (or similar) teen girl Manuela (Emely Neubert). Emely (Paula) also wears looped pigtails in s4e1 (ep 170). Another plaiting scene of 4 girls in ep 183 (coming soon).

Pic 3 showing farm girl Sylvia (Kristin Bohm) in ep 181 (s4).

Pic 4 showing the upcoming child care worker Nadja (Judith Klein) in ep 233 (season 5) in rather short blonde pigtails or maybe one single shoulder braid.

Main entry, currently rating 7

Comment: Anne Shirley as Anne Shirley in long, blonde red pigtails. Often wearing a flat straw hat. Looks quite old to me. Also including the famous pulling of pigtails scene.

Another but early version. I haven’t seen the complete movie, but I think I prefer the color movies and also the other actresses.

So rating 3 for now only.

A new CBC series is in  production starring Amybeth McNulty. Interesting.

Comment: Several girls and some teen girls and women in different pigtails, braids and similar. I have seen almost all 880+ episodes but can’t remember all. There are so many girls including supporting actresses, that I have to make some more posts or lists. There are 2 DVD compilations (where currently all pics are from) and DVD boxes of the later seasons (11+). Luckily all episodes are online. But who has time to watch them all? Best seasons are 1-5, maybe 6.

Most notable and longest pigtails of Paula (played by Jerusha Kloke, pic 1, ep 183, season 4 and earlier). Also in looped pigtails, one long braid, open hair and other hairstyle.

Pic showing Thekla in ep 130 (season 3) but I think rarely in pigtails. Both wearing dental braces.

Pic 3 showing Elizabeth on the right in ep 77 (season 2) or later.

Pic 4 showing Laura on the left in ep 300 (season 7) and earlier.

I also found Sylvia (farm girl, overalls, season 4), little Emely, Tinka, Sue, Tessa, Annika and others.

I think rating 6-7 only. I don’t remember scenes of pulling pigtails, but help of braiding.

For more infos see my others blogs (overalls blog rating 5/ up to 9 m/f).






Update: Cebollitas


Some more girls in pigtails.

Pic 1 showing Estela in short, blonde, even wet pigtails in ep 25 but she rarely wears pigtails.

Pic 2 showing a darkhaired girl (Maru or Irina ?) in long pigtails in ep 11.

Chubby young Andrea and Sofia mainly wore unbraided pigtails or ponytails. Most of the other girls not or rarely in pigtails.

On the main entry blonde Roxana, sometimes with one braid and of course Vero with the longest pigtails. And a pulling at pigtails scene.

For more infos and pics see my overalls blog.

Main entry here, rating 7

Available on DVD: yes

Pigtail occurence: low+
Rating:  7/10 *
Rating: *******
Comment: At least one girl at school in dark, looped pigtails (but I think rather few and brief scenes) also some younger blonde girls and women/teen girls, spectators of the baseball play near the beginning.

Interesting movie set in the 1960s. Handsome Joseph Mazzello shirtless in swim shorts. But obviously few good pigtails scenes. I didn’t had the time to watch the entire movie at slow speed.

Also on my bedroom blog rating 3. The movie itself is much better.

Comment: Aglaja Brix (pictured in s3e13, 2003 so around 12 yo) in very long, blonde pigtails. Braided till the half. Also cutting off (some parts) of one of her pigtails (maybe a fake) in this episode.

Also other girls in pigtails. I don’t remember all episodes (currently more than 165) and all (supporting) actresses. I don’t watch this series anymore and prefer the earlier seasons. I have one more pic of another blonde girl on my overalls blog in s12e2 /ep 151 (I think Zoë Malia Moon as Stella, probably only in pigtails in this episode.

Needs to be rechecked later.

Rating 5 for now. I prefer earlier settings.

Update: More girls, even better in later episodes, like s12e8, rating 6
