Comment: Some more girls in ep 6 (season 1). Two older girls, one blonde, the other darkhaired in the audience but most notable a younger girl in dark pigtails (medium length). I don’t know her name. Nice simple braids, also side view.

I’m still rechecking season 1.

This episode 6 is also one of the best showing the older brother working in bib overalls (other blog, rating 7).

For the pigtails rating 6-7. Update: I forgot one older teen girl or young woman in short thick dark pigtails at the end of this episode. (Rating ~3).

Main entry here, school scene, rating 5

Family series/movies. Astrid Lindgren
Year: 1971
Year in film: ~1900
Country: Sweden, Germany
Who in pigtails: Ida ~6
Who in pigtails 2: others ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: yes, partly TV recordings
Pigtail occurence: medium+ ?
Rating:  3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: At least Lena Wisborg as Emil’s young sister in blonde, short and thin pigtails. Maybe some more supporting actors like at school (ep 9).

I never liked this series, especially not Emil. And Ida is very young. There are better Astrid Lindgren series.

Needs to be rechecked later. Currently running on TV.

Please note that there’s a TV series and some shortened movies, containing only parts of the episodes.

Also on my sailor suit blog under “Emil och griseknoen” rating 6 and my bedroom blog rating 3.

Comment: I think some few girls in pigtails (at least 3) including this at school in s1e5 at 15 minutes. One blonde girl in thick and quite long, another ones in thinner pigtails.

I’m currently rewatching season 1 of this nice series (mainly for my bib overalls blog, rating 7).

The main characters are 2 boys and there’s also a tomboy with short hair. So I don’t remember other or even better scenes. Maybe none in season 3. But could be in season 2 (I don’t own). I think most women also wore short hair, what is quite surprisingly.

Rating 5, although few scenes.

Update: Even better a darkhaired girl in s1e6, rating 6-7 next to some more girls.

Comment: At least Tarah Nutter (unknown age, probably in her 20s) in thick, long and blonde pigtails and a red Bikini. Pigtails look quite unusual, almost like a wig.

Also a young man in blue Adidas shorts (shiny shorts blog, rating 3).

I don’t like thisk pigtails and prefer younger actresses.

So rating 2-3 only. Good movie, though.

Rating:  4/10 *
Rating: ****
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: 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: At least this young girl in very long, blonde pigtails.

Not bad, but the girl is quite young.

Rating 5-6. Remake of Un traje blanco (1956) b&w which also needs to be checked.
