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”.

Comment: Post 3 goes to The Waltons. Perfect family and bib overalls series and one of my favourites. I’m watching the DVD all and over again. Good plots. Also many supporting actors/actresses.

Of course mainly redhaired Elizabeth (mainly in later seasons, around 5) and Mary-Ellen of interest. Longer, blonde appearing pigtails on pic 2. More updates later. Please also check my other blogs.

Comment: The 2nd post to this great movie. Both pics are from the song “Wells Fargo Wagon” featuring Ron Howard. Spooky Monique Vermont with long pigtails (pic 1). I don’t know the name of the girl in pic 2 (one brief scene).

There are also many other girls and women at least with braids.

Long movie, I will recheck it completetly later.

There is also a 2003 remake but I don’t assume much of interest there.

Rating 9-10.

More entries coming soon.

Comment: The first post goes to LHOTP and Melissa Gilbert. There are several girls shown, I think most in pigtails.

I have to recheck all seasons later. There’s one tomboy in overalls in s4e14 (pic 3). Also nice pulling of pigtails by a boy. The blonde girl is called Olga. Laura also often in looped pigtails (I frist didn’t remember that. Pic see update 3).

There should be scenes of boys dipping pigtails in inkwells. I haven’t found those scenes yet. The desk are also angled. Maybe in the novels only?

For more infos also check out my other blogs, especially my overalls blog.

Rating 10.

Update one better pic of the girl being pulled on their pigtails. Rating 9. New tag wet. 12 yo Katy Kutzman in long blonde pigtails in s4e16 (rating 5).
