Update: Chiquititas (1995)


One more pic of this original Argentinian series. Pic from 1998 ep 138 (Chiquititas 98) showing 2 older darkhaired girls. Not sure if these are just shoulder braids or 2 pigtails. At least nice long braids.

Great series, main entry rating 6


Also on my bib overalls blog rating 3.

Chiquititas Brasil (1997) also coming soon.

Next entry in January.


Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all my readers!

Info: stats, blogging


This blog has very few visitors. Around just one or 2 hits each day. The high peek are also just 4 and maybe even include spammers. I wonder why. My newest blog has much more visitors. I don’t know if I should continue this blog. 6 blogs are a lot of work.

I’m still very busy with my new shiny shorts blog.

So please prepare for less frequent blogging. So probably not daily, but maybe once a week or even less or when I found something very interesting.

Same for my Western blog. I currently don’t watch Westerns or movies with very early settings.

Please help by commenting and suggesting movies!

And check out my other blogs, which sometimes include pigtails as well.

Rating:  4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: At least Virginia Weidler in long dark, quite thin pigtails. Sailor-style dress.

Remake of a 1930s movie, so setting might be earlier.

I don’t know the complete movie, and currently can’t say much more. Rating 4-5 for now only.

But there are better (earlier) movies with her like Girl of the Ozarks (1936). Another movie with her in looped pigtails coming soon.

Pigtail occurence: medium ?
Rating:  6/10 ?
Rating: ******
Comment: At least 15 yo Kirsten Dunst (even looking older to me) in long, blonde pigtails, but also open hair.

Baggy brown, corduroy bib overalls also riding and being tied (overalls blog rating 5).

I prefer her younger, like 2 years earlier in Jumanij (rating 9 and in overalls as well, but blue ones and also wet).

Jumanji as movie is also much better than this Adventure film. But I have to recheck it.

Rating 5-6.

Rating:  5/10 ?

Comment: At least Virginia Weidler in long dark pigtails. I haven’t noticed any other girls in pigtails. School scene at the beginning. But I don’t know the complete movie. The time setting looks earlier but should set during the Depression.

More movies with her coming soon, also older and also in looped pigtails. I couldn’t find the other versions of Laddie (1935, 1936).

Also soon on my overalls blog (boy and maybe even her).

Rating 4-5 for now.

Comment: Some, also younger girls and women in different pigtails, braids, buns and the like.

I don’t watch the recent episodes, just the older episodes being broadcasted weekdays at noon. There’s one young girl, I think at pic 1, often sporting pigtails around episodes 790. Pic from ep 834 (2001). Pic 2 showing a blonde girl in ep 1593 with a thick shoulder braid.

Pic is showing a young lady in ep 824 (2001) with 2 thin braids on one side. I don’t know their names.

Also unpictured in pigtails: a blonde young woman (Ulrike Scheel as Ute, plays in ep 684-983 working at a hairdresser), a darkhaired girl (Selma Baldursson as Meike), around 10 yo, a blonde girl, around 7 yo in 1998 episode “Karpfen blau”. Most of the earlier episodes are not online.

I have to make updates later.

Nice, but huge series, also on my bib overalls blog, (f,m, girls, women) rating up to 7.

For pigtails rating 5-6 for now only.

Comment: At least this young lady in dark blonde, long pigtails. But probably also in other hairstyle. I’m not sure about her name as there a 6 teen girls. I think it’s Merritt Wever.

I don’t like the 1960s and prefer younger girls.

Comment: At least 7 or 8 yo Joan Carroll in dark long pigtails. Sometimes, one braid is on the back and behind the ear, the other on the front. Ranch setting. Also she and women in buns.

The movie is the 2nd remake. 70 minutes, 1913 novel by Gene Stratton-Porter based on her childhood.

I like long pigtails. And have to check the other movies 1926 and 1935. Porter even played that character in the 1926 movie. Virginia Weidler in the other movie. Very similar girls and pigtails.

Rating 7-8 for now.
