Rating: ***
Comment: Some girls in pigtails like these 2 in s1e6. One young blonde girl in b&w, set probably in the 1930s like many of the episodes, and another, a bit older darkhaired girl in long pigtails. Maybe some more (including women) in other episodes?

Also boys and girls in bib overalls (other blog rating 7) and boys in Lederhosen (rating up to 8 but that one not available on DVD).

I don’t like the girls here.

So rating 3 for now only.

Comment: Some girls in pigtails. I first thought, that I already had an entry and just wanted to make an update of the redhaired girl. Series is currently running weekends on German DasErste (season 1).

My favourite is blonde Paulina (Tabea Hug, pics 1+3 from ep 43=season 4, so ~11 yo, but also younger shown) in long pigtails. Pic 4 showing young Lilie (s1e4) in blonde, looped pigtails. I think also later in regular ones and other hair styles.

Pic 2 showing a redhaired girl (Zora Achtnich as Celine) with rather short pigtails in ep 6. I think also other (older) girls and maybe women in pigtails. I don’t remember all episodes.

Also on my bib overalls blog (f,m rating up to 6 including firefighters) and on my shiny shorts blog.

Rating even 7 for now.

Comment: Obviously Katharina Thalbach, around 24 yo but much younger looking, in long, blonde pigtails and some other, younger girls at school in mainly or only dark blonde pigtails (also rear view) but mainly from a distance. Also other hairstyles and pigtails stucked up as a crown and/ or looped. Not sure about women.

Has been aired some days ago, but I missed some parts.

Famous and quite interesting movie with some good plots (1 Oscar), but I don’t like at all 13 yo but much younger looking David Bennent as ~11 yo Oskar with his annoying voice. Also on my sailor suit blog, rating 4.

For pigtails rating 5.

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: At least Katharina Wäschebach here in ep 31 (s3e5, 2002) in longer pigtails fixed with strings. I haven’t seen this before. I think she rarely wore pigtails and has shorter hair in the earlier seasons. But I also have seen a pic of her in real, braided pigtails and maybe also a (shoulder) braid. Also a black girl with buns (ep 36, see my overalls blog) and younger Asian girl Kiki in black, unbraided pigtails.

Maybe some more girls (or women) (supporting actresses) like at school. At least some with ponytails (like Vanessa)

Quite interesting. Also on my bib overalls blog, f/m rating 5 and my bedroom blog (boys, rating 10).

For pigtails rating 5-6 for now. Needs to be rechecked.

Comment: I think this must be 15 or 16 yo Lisa-Marie Koroll in long, red pigtails, obviously a wig and a Western hat. Also riding. Maybe some more girls. Lots of supporting actors (in different costumes at the end). Pic 1 from the Outtakes.

Has been aired on Easter. Unfortunatley I almost missed it completetly.

Maybe much better than thought. Usually I don’t like this kind of modern girl movies.

I have to recheck the complete movie (for all my blogs). There’s a woman (and girl) in bib overalls (other blog rating 3 for now), boys in shiny shorts (rating 5, unknown amount, few scenes ?), nice Western clothes (f/m, rating 6) and some kids (probably girls) wearing sailor dresses (manga costumes) and obviously a teen boy/young man in Lederhosen (not yet on my Lederhosen blog).

For this wig, rating 5-6 for now only. On my other blogs titled as “Bibi&Tina: voll verhext”, the previous IMDb title.

Comment: At least 3 girls in pigtails, mainly at the beginning. Not the twins, unlike the classic movie. Most notable a redhaired girl with thick pigtails in- and outside the boarding school. One other young girl with pigtails of parts of her hair and one older teen girl. Many supporting actors. Maybe some more in the background. Also others in ponytails, like the twins, I think also braids and similar

Has been aired today. And I’ve even seen it almost completetly. The 2nd half is very boaring and not showing the many (girls) of the boarding school.

Also some good scenes of girls and boys in swimwear (shorts). And nice bunkbeds. Soon on both my other blogs.

Rating 6-7 for pigtails.

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.

Rating: ******
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.
