Comment: At least Jenna Ortega as tomboy Mary-Ann in bib overalls and long, dark pigtails, woven at the back of her head and the pigtails lay both over her shoulders and also back or one each.

Nice remake, but I prefer the classic series.

Comment: At least this girl in thick and rather long pigtails. Not sure about her name either Suzanne Togni (or less likely Kimi Tallmadge). Togni in even longer pigtails also in many other episodes of this series and “Shadows of Fear (1970)” In 1968, there was a related BBC series “Adventure Weekly” with a different cast (Elizabeth Dear as girl Fred in dark, long pigtails) which also needs to be checked. Also related: Here Come The Double Deckers (1970). All based on Hal Roach’s “Our Gang”.

I found this by coincidence.

Also check out my bib overalls blog for several other CFF/CFTF movies.

Rating 4-5 for this one.

Comment: At least this girl, I think Lilli in thin pigtails in upcoming season 2 starting on Monday (ep 9). Also others at least in long (rasta) braids.

Also another girl in bib overalls or shortalls (other blog, currently rating 3).

I don’t like at all these thin pigtails. She looks better in regular hair.

Rating 3 for now only.

–Comment: At least 12 yo Mackenzie Foy at school in raw denim overalls and dark pigtails. I think rather few good scenes as she also has open hair. The pigtails are rather modern, woven to the back of her head.

There are better series.

Comment: Some girls, teen girls and women in pigtails, mainly short ones. Pic 1 showing a blonde girl (Maria ?) in blue checkered bibs. Video #608 in 1999. Pic 2 is from s2e6, pic 3 from ep 335, pic 3 from “A chegada de Pata”.

Also on my bib overalls blog, several entries rating 6, also showing a teen girl. Also unbraided pigtails, ponytails, buns and else. The young girl is very often shown.

Not to be confused with the 1995 Argentinian series, rating 6, nor the 2013 series. When the image quality is good, then it’s most likely a different series.

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.
