Comment: I found another girl (Lindsay Fisher), 7th grade, in rare pigtails in s2e15. Thin pigtails, a bit protruding and only partly braided. Another 3rd braid on the rear.

Great episode (involving and titled Square Dance) with the boys in their red PE shorts.

Perfect series, for this pigtails rating 3, main entry here, rating 4 for Winnie (also on most my other blogs)

Comment: At least Amy Linker in different dark, quite long pigtails and other hairstyles like a crown. Probably also some other teen girls (supporting actors), I think in ep 18 (blonde ?).

Pic 1 from ep 17 in a bit protruding pigtails, pic 2 from ep 5 in LHOTP-like, simple pigtails and pic 3 from ep 7 as Indian (is this Amy Linker as well?) My favourite is pic 2, also nice side view.

Also updated on my bib overalls blog, rating 6.

–Comment: Bella Ramsey as Mildred (pic 1) in dark long pigtails, also in protruding pigtails and Tamara Smart in buns. I think also some more girls (and maybe women)? Pics from s1e8. Currently running on Kika (but I don’t watch this).

Quite interesting but I only have checked it briefly.

There are similar series like Weirdsister College (rating 5)


I also have to check the earlier movies and series (1986, 1998 series).

Rating 5-6 for now for this. I don’t like much Mildred here. Also girls in blue and black bib overalls (soon on my other blog, rating ~5 ?)

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.

Comment: One older girl in thin, blonde pigtail (she’s the older sister of one the boys of the gang) and a very young girl of the gang in short, bend, protruding pigtails. The young girl also riding and other scenes, referring to Pippi Longstocking.

Funny family movie but mainly the very young kids (inventors) are shown.

English title: Fiddlesticks.

Rating 7-8 for the older girl (I don’t remember her name).

Not sure about the time setting. Old and modern setting obviously mixed.

Comment: Redhaired Inger Nilsson with protruding pigtails. Probably one of most famous pair of pigtails. Probably also other girls at school ?

I somehow never liked her much. She’s not shy what most girls with pigtails are. Though great story and movies.

There are also other movies, earlier and later that needs to be rechecked. I only remember the 1988 US remake.

Rating 5 for now for Inger Nilsson.
