Comment: At least this young girl in short and thin, a bit protruding pigtails in today’s episode 172 (2002). Brief scenes of a farm family in Northern Germany, I think in around 1800s. Plot is about mires (marshland).

Probably some more females (including women) in other episodes.

Rating 5 for now.

Good series. Several entries on my bib overalls blog (f,m), rating up to 7.

Comment: At least Sylvia Wolff as Rapunzel in extremely long, blonde pigtails.

Another rope-entry. One other Rapunzel movie coming soon.

There are few good live action versions. Fairy Tales are a good source for pigtails.

Rating 4 for now. I prefer younger actresses. English title: Rapunzel or the Magic of Tears.

Comment: Heather Graham in dark pigtails. Also one on front and one on back. Pic 1 from ep 6, pic 2 in the red dress from ep1.

Very interesting. Not to be confused with the 1975-1976 US series. There’s Helen Hunt in pigtails (coming soon).

Famous plot. I also have to check the other versions. Some are also on my other blogs (bib overalls, Lederhosen).

I don’t know all episodes.

Comment: At least 9 or 10 yo Amona Aßmann in thin, blonde pigtails. Of course often with a hood. Pigtails often at the back, sometimes on the front and also one front, one back.

Also a woman with a shoulder braid.

Another nice Grimm’s Fairy Tale. I don’t know/don’t remember the complete movie and have to recheck it.

Comment: Lea Eisleb (“Blöde Mütze!”) in longer blonde pigtails.

Has been aired before Christmas but I rarely watch Fairy tales and so missed most of it.

Fairy tales and their early settings are probably a great source for girls in pigtails. Especially Rapunzel (but this is probably mostly one long braid).

The girl is quite old (for a Fairy tale) . I prefer younger girls and dark hair.

Rating 6 for now.

Pigtails and/or braids in other Frau Holle versions (1944 b&w woman maybe long braid, girl), 1963 darkhaired woman as Pechmarie)

New tag 1800s. (1860s and later Western movies are in the 1900s).
