Update: Tiere bis unters Dach


Little sister Lilie (Lotte Hanné) with long blonde hair wore all kinds of pigtails and other hairstyles. There are also some more girls, including red hair, short pigtails and buns.

I think first in a bit protruding pigtails with rubber rings. Pic 1 from ep 14 (season 2, s2e1). A bit later she wore a hat and regular pigtails. Also in ep 16 (pic 2).

In pic 3 she wore what I call “modern” style pigtails, which is partly plaited onto the head, so the pigtails are hanging free only at the lower part near the shoulders.

Redhaired Celina also in ep 16 next to I think other girls riding.

Looped pigtails (season 1) are shown in the main entry next to some other girls in later seaons. Lilie is very young in seasons 1+2 and I don’t like her here. Paulina is much better (currently rating 7).

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.

Update more pics of Lilie in season 2 with all kinds of pigtails (rating 5)

Comment: Agnieszka Krukówna around 12 or 13 yo as Asia (Anja in Germany) in blonde pigtails. Also in looped pigtails and open hair. Both pics showing her in ep 5. Looking more strict on pic 2. Also another girl (Olga Piotrowska ?, around 11 or 12 yo) in red-blonde, unbraided pigtails. Not sure about women (mom) or other (supporting) actresses like the younger girl.

She also appeared in the sequels (Klementynka i Klemens – gesi z Doliny Mlynów, and especially “Janka” (1989), rating 5, on German: Janna).

Also on my bib overalls blog (rating 6) and soon on my bedroom blog (girls+boy).

Comment: Jutta and Isa Günther as 10 yo main characters in rather short pigtails (also looped) and some other girls in pigtails and braids. Also plaiting scenes, touching own and pulling at the sister’s pigtail.

Interesting classic movie and famous plot. There are some, mainly modern remakes but I think none showing pigtails.

I have to recheck the complete movie. English title: Two Times Lotte. One or both girls in a sailor dress (soon on my other blog) rating 5.

Rating 7-8 for now.



Update 2: The Waltons


Searching for Erin in pigtails in later seasons (I have very briefly checked some parts of season 3+4 but haven’t found anything), I found a guest star and also Elizabeth in looped pigtails.

Pic 1 from s3e15 friend of Ben (I don’t remember her name). Pic 2 from s4e2.

I didn’t remember Elizabeth in looped pigtails. Obviously very rare. And Erin is rather rarely shown or in the focus. I noticed her once in not braided pigtails.

Mary Ellen also in pigtails in season 3 (disc 5) but looking similar like in the main entry.

I have to recheck seasons 1-4 or 5 again (and season 8+9) also for more supporting actresses, especially at school. I’m currently still watching season 6.

Main entry rating 10




Update 3: Little House on the Prairie


Another update of this great series LHOTP. This time showing Laura in looped pigtails. Maybe she wore them more often like that than first assumed. Also showing again blonde Olga.

Pic 2 showing another, older girl in looped, dark pigtails from s1e1. Funny glance.

There are some more girls in pigtails at school. I still need to check the complete series also for scenes showing plaiting or pulling pigtails.

Also coming soon the spin-off “Father Murphy”.

Main entry rating 10 at

Comment: Some girls at school in pigtails. Most notably a darkhaired girl in long pigtails (is this Becky ?) and also (another one ?) im looped pigtails . Also one girl with a long blonde braid.

I never liked this version of Tom and Huck. Some few good scenes in bathing suits.

Other Tom and Huck versions coming soon.

For pigtails rating 6. Also on my bedroom blog rating 4.

Rating:  7/10 *
Rating: *******
Comment: At least one girl at school in dark, looped pigtails (but I think rather few and brief scenes) also some younger blonde girls and women/teen girls, spectators of the baseball play near the beginning.

Interesting movie set in the 1960s. Handsome Joseph Mazzello shirtless in swim shorts. But obviously few good pigtails scenes. I didn’t had the time to watch the entire movie at slow speed.

Also on my bedroom blog rating 3. The movie itself is much better.

Comment: At least two blonde girls in pigtails. Maybe some more supporting actors in the background.

First one girl in looped pigtails. Also the girl hanging upside down at the beginning (monkey bars). Unfortunatley these short, looped pigtails there as well, so not much hanging down.

One other girl with one or both braids over or around her head. Quite rare.

Also on my sailor suit blog rating 6 (girl in sailor dress and boy in Lederhosen).

Interesting movie. Novels by Lisa Tetzner.

Update: Our Gang


There are also at least 2 more boys in pigtails.

First Buckwheat (pics 1+2) looking similar like Farina but mainly with smaller and looped pigtails here. Pic 1 colorized from movie “Divot Diggers” (1936)

I’ve also seen a pic of Stymie (pic 2) with long pigtails but they were probably just attached to his hat. Both b&w from unknown movies but most likely from earlier films.

Main entry, boy/girls rating 5 (incl. pulling at pigtails)
