Comment: One girl in dark blonde, long pigtails in ep. III (1977). The sketch is called Feuerwehr (Die H.S. zwo). Also part of the 1997 series.

Has been aired around Christmas. I have seen it before but very long time ago, as there’s mainly another episode aired on Christmas. Maybe some more girls or women in other episodes?

Nice pigtails but few good scenes. She also often had her pigtails hidden behind the objects.

Rating 4-5 for now.

Comment: Some girls, especially at school, some in short, few others in long and one in dark, very long pigtails outside school with pigtails swinging at her front. Main character, 6 yo Annemarie in blonde, unbraided pigtails. She also cut off parts of her hair. Pic 1 from ep 4, pics 2+3 from ep 3. Rather few school scenes and ep 4-6 has a different actress as 10 yo main character. Needs to be checked more carefully.

Has been aired around Christmas, but I missed most parts this time. I have seen and checked it earlier, but long time ago.

Also very nice costumes and both boys and girls in sailor suits and Lederhosen (other blog, rating 9.

Update: Anne of Green Gables (2016)

As announced, some more pics of this nice movie which has been aired at Christmas.

There are 2 girls being pulled at their pigtails. Also one blonde. And another angle of the redhaired Anne (rear view pulling, see main entry).

I think also some few more girls at school in pigtails or braids. Also in sailor dresses.

The 2017 movie starring Amybeth McNulty also coming soon.

Comment: Obviously Gina Gillespie in very long, dark blonde pigtails pictured in s6e8 (1961). Probably some more girls and women (seasons 1-5 are in b&w). She also starred in s5e26, but I haven’t seen this one (probably similar). I also have her in Law of the Plainsman, rating 7 (b&w).

Also some Indians in pigtails like Joseph Vitale in s3e8 and others in s3e7.

Very good and even in color.

Also soon on my Western blog, rating ~7-8.

Rating ~8. But needs to be rechecked for other actresses and episodes.

Comment: Some few girls in pigtails including this girl with blonde looped ones, I think 13 yo Charlotte Lorenzen. Also some few others at school and elsewhere including blonde buns (young girl), short dark and regular pigtails. And the sister of the older Hans, set around 8 years later in the 2nd half of the movie. But rather few scenes.

Also on my sailor suit blog (boy, rating 3) and soon on my bedroom blog, rating ~4.

Quite interesting movie, fresh and handsome kids, but only in the first half.

Could be better. I don’t like much looped pigtails.

Rating 3-4 only.

Update of Anne of Green Gables (2016) coming next (aired on Christmas).

Comment: At least Heather O’Rourke pictured 1983 in season 1 (s1e8 Travis ?, clip says s1e9 1984, at least 1984 is wrong) in very long, blonde pigtails. How could I miss her? She only appeared in 3 episodes.

She’s quite young, so only rating 7.

Also on my bedroom blog and my bib overalls blog (boy), both rating 3.

Probably some more girls or women in pigtails as there were many supporting actors. I don’t know all episodes. Only season 1-4 are available on DVD.

Comment: One blonde girl, I think Julia Jeker in quite lang pigtails also some girls at school, also darkhaired.

I found this by coincidence and don’t know the complete movie yet.

Based on a 1945 picture book and there’s also a 1964 short film. Quite Heidi-like. But I never heard of it before.

Rating 6-7 for now. Obviously an interesting movie. Nice costumes (also boys). English title: A Bell for Ursli.

Comment: One girl in a dress, I think Virginia Fiol (“The Tripods”) in long, dark pigtails with ribbions. Set in the 1940s UK. Pigtails coming from the rear and are sometimes on her back.

Searching for some more Christain movies from publisher SCM Hänssler (“Papa Was a Preacher”), I found this one.

Quite interesting but movie seems quite boring.

For pigtails, rating 4-5.
