Comment: As announced this latest version of Anne of Green Gables starring Amybeth McNulty. Maybe also other teen girls or women in pigtails, but I haven’t seen anyone, yet. Anne often wearing a flat hat. Nice costumes, also of the boys. Jerry (Aymeric Jett Montaz) probably also wore bib overalls in the barn next to an leather apron.

It also includes the famous pigtail pulling scene in ep 3 (pic 2). Better pic and GIF here

The actress is a bit older, around 16 in season 1. Anne in the novels is 11 yo. But in most movies she’s older as well. But I don’t like much this actress.

I don’t know the complete series, yet.

Rating 4-5 for now only. I have to recheck this later. Also for my other blogs. Earlier versions collected here

Comment: One girl in dark blonde, long pigtails in ep. III (1977). The sketch is called Feuerwehr (Die H.S. zwo). Also part of the 1997 series.

Has been aired around Christmas. I have seen it before but very long time ago, as there’s mainly another episode aired on Christmas. Maybe some more girls or women in other episodes?

Nice pigtails but few good scenes. She also often had her pigtails hidden behind the objects.

Rating 4-5 for now.

Comment: Some girls, especially at school, some in short, few others in long and one in dark, very long pigtails outside school with pigtails swinging at her front. Main character, 6 yo Annemarie in blonde, unbraided pigtails. She also cut off parts of her hair. Pic 1 from ep 4, pics 2+3 from ep 3. Rather few school scenes and ep 4-6 has a different actress as 10 yo main character. Needs to be checked more carefully.

Has been aired around Christmas, but I missed most parts this time. I have seen and checked it earlier, but long time ago.

Also very nice costumes and both boys and girls in sailor suits and Lederhosen (other blog, rating 9.

Comment: Some few girls in pigtails including this girl with blonde looped ones, I think 13 yo Charlotte Lorenzen. Also some few others at school and elsewhere including blonde buns (young girl), short dark and regular pigtails. And the sister of the older Hans, set around 8 years later in the 2nd half of the movie. But rather few scenes.

Also on my sailor suit blog (boy, rating 3) and soon on my bedroom blog, rating ~4.

Quite interesting movie, fresh and handsome kids, but only in the first half.

Could be better. I don’t like much looped pigtails.

Rating 3-4 only.

Update of Anne of Green Gables (2016) coming next (aired on Christmas).

Comment: At least this blonde girl in medium length pigtails. Not sure about her name (it’s not Hayley Mills). Probably her friend Lallie, played by Wendy Turner (Deborah Walley is much older ~18 yo).

I don’t remember the complete movie.

Also on my sailor suit blog (Mills, rating 5) and my bib overalls blog (boy, rating 6).

Typical, but nice 1900s Disney musical.

For pigtails rating 4-5 for now only.

Haley Mills also starred in Pollyanna (1960), no entry, yet.

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: At least this teen girl in very long pigtails but only of parts of her hair. I don’t remember her name. Pic from ep. 4. I think also touching her own pigtails. Probably wearing jeans?

Also on my shiny shorts blog, (boys, mainly older teens) rating 6 (updates soon).

I rarely watch my DVD set. The boys are too old, except for ep. 1. Mainly of interest of teen star Tommi Ohrner.

Comment: I think 12 or 13 yo Victoria Lozar in quite long, blonde pigtails but in few episodes, also in unbraided pigtails. Pic from episode 5. Also in bib overalls (other blog rating 6).

Not bad but there are better series and movies.

Few good scenes, so rating 4-5 only.

Comment: At least this girl, I think Tammy Shields in rather short, thin, blonde pigtails. Her pigtails flying up and dancing due to supernatural powers (of Joey) or telekinesis.

Quite funny. Finally some flying up pigtails.

Also on my bib overalls blog (boys rating 4).

There are better movies. Nice 80s toys and bedroom. Also soon on that blog.

For pigtails rating 4-5 only. I think rather few good scenes.

Coming next: a boy in pigtails.
