Comment: At least this blonde girl in medium length pigtails. Not sure about her name (it’s not Hayley Mills). Probably her friend Lallie, played by Wendy Turner (Deborah Walley is much older ~18 yo).

I don’t remember the complete movie.

Also on my sailor suit blog (Mills, rating 5) and my bib overalls blog (boy, rating 6).

Typical, but nice 1900s Disney musical.

For pigtails rating 4-5 for now only.

Haley Mills also starred in Pollyanna (1960), no entry, yet.

Comment: At least this young, blonde girl in pigtails. Not sure if both are the same girl. Pic 1 in protruding pigtails like Pippi Longstocking in red long johns in song “She’ll Be Comin’ ‘Round the Mountain” (bib overalls blog, boys, girls rating 8).

Pic 2 from Six Little Ducks. Maybe some more, also older girls?

Most songs are very good and interesting costumes. The girl is a bit annoying and jumping always around. More infos on my other blogs.

For pigtails rating 3-4 only.

Comment: At least this teen girl in very long pigtails but only of parts of her hair. I don’t remember her name. Pic from ep. 4. I think also touching her own pigtails. Probably wearing jeans?

Also on my shiny shorts blog, (boys, mainly older teens) rating 6 (updates soon).

I rarely watch my DVD set. The boys are too old, except for ep. 1. Mainly of interest of teen star Tommi Ohrner.

Comment: Several girls at school at different age in pigtails. Different actresses in different seasons. Most and best scenes in seasons 2+3. Western(-like) setting in the 1910s or earlier. Nice dresses (mainly in season 1)

Pic 1 from s1e4, pics 2+4 from s2e5 showing a teen girl in long pigtails who touched (the top of) them. One younger girl in pic 4 sitting in pink (white appearing) clothes has long, dark pigtails on the back of her head (“modern style” braided).

Pic 3 showing a very young, blonde girl in s3e6. Behind her another, a bit older girl who is very good.

Not sure about women and braids.

Currently running on German’s Bibel TV. Also on my bib overalls blog (rating 5) and soon on my other blogs.

Not bad but there are better series and movies.

Few good scenes, so rating 4-5 only.

Comment: At least Canadian Katie Stuart in thick and rather short pigtails and bib overalls in s1e7. Probably more actresses in other episodes.

I almost forget to add this here.

Also on my bib overalls blog, rating 5. Unfortunately in this episode only and few scenes in pigtails (and overalls).

Although I don’t like thick pigtails, rating even 7 for now.
