Comment: At least one darkhaired girl in medium long pigtails and a yellow dress. Scene from the end. Haircut and pigtails looking rather strict and old style (pre 1960s). No parting in the hair. A bit spooky like the girl in The Music Man (1962) set in the 1910s (rating 10).

Good family movie but mainly focussed on a boy (and his friends).

Also on my bedroom blog, rating 7 and my shiny shorts blog, rating 4.

Rating 5-6 for the pigtails.

Comment: Agnieszka Krukówna as 15 yo Janka (Janna in Germany) in medium long, blonde pigtails (pic from ep 7) but mainly in unbraided pigtails, and also other teen girls and probably girls and women. At school at least one in longer, dark pigtails (ep 4). And at least one with a braid. Many wearing dark blue sailor dresses. Also on my sailor suit blog rating 5, also showing Janka in unbraided pigtails. Pic 3 from ep 12?

Nice 1920s setting and lots of historical clothes (and hairstyles). Filmed in 1987. Many supporting actors, especially in ep 4 and 7, but mainly from a distance.

I also have her in Urwisy z Doliny Mlynów (1985) aka Die Kinder vom Mühlental (rating 6). Obviously much fewer pigtails in Janka. I still have to check the 3rd series.

Quite interesting, but few good scenes. I prefer the 1st series.

So rating 5 only.

Comment: Some few girls and mainly younger teen girls in traditional Bavarian clothes (dresses) and pigtails. Blonde and dark blond and brown, often long. Also dancing with boys (those in Lederhosen) and the pigtails (and dresses) flying up while spinning (“Dirndldrahn”). Ep 187 “Ludwig, der Schuhplattler”.

Also on my Lederhosen blog (rating 6) and my overalls blog (other episode firefighters f/m, rating 4).

Interesting series.

Rating 6 for this episode. For more infos see my other blog.

Comment: 12 or 13 yo Loredana in long pigtails (pic 1+2) and older sister (3rd youngest daughter) Sarah-Jane in even longer pigtails in yesterday’s episode 5 (s2e1). Sarah-Jane also playing with the tip of the pigtails, tossing one back. Pigtails of both mainly on the front. Seems to be a modern way of plaiting and almost looking like the girls at Cologne carnival. Pigtails are woven and on the rear of the heads instead of the sides.

This is a spin-off and the girls are rarely shown in pigtails, also in the main series “Die Wollnys”, maybe more often and more girls in earlier episodes. They usually have a bun or a shoulder braid. Also the granddaughter toddler “Mucki” at least in unbraided pigtails.

Also on my bib overalls blog rating 5 and my bedroom blog rating 3.

Unusual food and funny series and family. But obviously all or most plots are written for them and so it’s not the real life.

I like long pigtails, but Loredana is shy of often looking unhappy and Sarah-Jane is too chubby.

Rating 6-7 for the pigtails.

Comment: First I thought, that this is Kate McNeil as main character Louise in short, dark pigtails in s1e9 but it’s another girl (Kate Crosby). Kate McNeil sometimes wore a ponytail. Maybe also other actresses?

Also on my bedroom blog, rating 6, and my shiny shorts blog, rating 9.

Great series, but I prefer the 60s classic.

Rating 5-6.

Comment: Most notably French Yeardley Smith in very long, dark blonde pigtails (and also open hair) And very short hair, cutting her hair off but not as pigtails. Also other women and or (teen) girls. At least Helen Slater in a blonde shoulder braid and open hair with one braided part, also wet.

Interesting movie. I like the 80s.

Also on my shiny shorts blog, rating 7 (including women).

Usually I like long pigtails but somehow not this lady. Pigtails are also thick.

So rating 4-5 only. Needs to be rechecked for overalls scenes and younger girls.

Comment: At least these 2 young girls in pigtails, one darkhaired, one blonde. I don’t remember their names.

Both pics from ep 23.

Great series by Roger Mirams. I only have checked it briefly. Obviously rather few scenes of pigtails. Also interesting bedrooms scenes, shorts, riding, overalls. So soon on my other blogs.

Rating around 6-7.

Comment: At least Tiarnie Coupland around 16 or 17 yo in dark, medium length pigtails. Also at least one other, Asian looking teen girl in a dark shoulder braid and pigtails.

Currently running in Germany. But I don’t watch and don’t like this series with older teens.

Also on my shiny shorts blog, rating 3.

Not that bad, rating 5-6 for now.

Comment: At least 2 blonde girls, I think Danielle Chuchran (pictured ?, also riding) and Carlisle Stude in pigtails, also both wearing hats. The younger girl has shorter pigtails. Also the main character Hannah (Miranda Cosgrove) in dark pigtails (and a hat, too) but obviously less often.

I have seen some parts of this movie some time ago but don’t remember much of it.

Also on my bib overalls blog (older teen boy, rating 3).

Seems interesting and needs to be rechecked. Probably a typical ranch movie.

Rating 7-8 for now. Usually I prefer dark pigtails, but here the blonde ones are more of interest.

Comment: Gabriele Michel in long, dark pigtails on he front. I only found her in pigtails but only checked the 1st of the 2 episodes. Obviously few other girls and women and mainly with a bun.

Some interesting scenes set in the 1930s.

I prefer her 12 yo film brother (Lederhosen blog rating 4) and soon on my bedroom blog.

She also starred in the 1979 sequel series “Ein Kapitel für sich” wrongly credited on IMDb as a different actress Gabrielle with 2 L’s. I found around 10 or 20 mistakes on IMDb within a short time and lots of movies, keywords and infos like birth dates missing. Even wrong movie posters. It’s a shame. You can’t trust this site alone.

I like long and strict pigtails. But she’s quite old.

Rating 6-7.
