Comment: At least this girl in quite short, thick, dark pigtails. Her mother touching one of her pigtails. Christmas themed episode. 28 minutes.

Set in a Latin-American village. Not sure about the time setting. They wore costumes in this episode. Maybe 1900s or more likely a bit later. 1930s ? Or even the 1950s? Based on a 1930s radio show.

Rating 4-5 only (for this episode). Maybe somemore and even better scenes in other episodes? I found this by coincidence.

Comment: Obviously Katharina Thalbach, around 24 yo but much younger looking, in long, blonde pigtails and some other, younger girls at school in mainly or only dark blonde pigtails (also rear view) but mainly from a distance. Also other hairstyles and pigtails stucked up as a crown and/ or looped. Not sure about women.

Has been aired some days ago, but I missed some parts.

Famous and quite interesting movie with some good plots (1 Oscar), but I don’t like at all 13 yo but much younger looking David Bennent as ~11 yo Oskar with his annoying voice. Also on my sailor suit blog, rating 4.

For pigtails rating 5.

Comment: At least this young girl in short and thin, a bit protruding pigtails in today’s episode 172 (2002). Brief scenes of a farm family in Northern Germany, I think in around 1800s. Plot is about mires (marshland).

Probably some more females (including women) in other episodes.

Rating 5 for now.

Good series. Several entries on my bib overalls blog (f,m), rating up to 7.

Comment: At least this girl in long, blonde pigtails in the pilot. Not sure about her name, obviously Kim Richard as younger sister. (Looks much older to me).

I don’t remember all episodes. Probably some more girls or women in pigtails?

Also on my shiny shorts blog (rating 10, TOP#4) and soon on my bedroom blog, rating ~5.

Great 70s series. Unfortunately not on DVD. Handsome Lance.

For pigtails rating 5-6 for now.

Update 4: The Waltons

waltons-s2waltons-s2b

Next to the main characters, I also found Sissy Spacek, around 23 yo in pigtails as pregnant Sarah in s2e2 (pic 1) and another teen girl as Indian with a black wig at a stage play (season 2 as well).

I like Sissy Spacek, often playing nice farm movies and sometimes wearing bib overalls.

Main entry, rating 10 (Elizabeth, Mary-Ellen and Erin)

Comment: I think some few girls only at school in pigtails. One blonde in protruding or looped pigtails and others in dark pigtails. But I think rather few scenes.

Also on my sailor suit blog, rating 4 (AnnaSophia Robb).

Nice 1900s setting and good clothes.

For pigtails, rating 5-6.

Comment: At least this blonde, older teen girl, Anat Atzmon in regular, braided and unbraided pigtails. Also at least one other, dark blonde teen  girl. Probably some more girls and/ or women in this and the sequel.

I think rather few (good) pigtails scenes.

Not bad (for these days). Rating 5-6 for now.

Comment: At least Maya Ritter as main character Molly in medium length, dark blonde pigtails with blue ribbons, a basque cap and glasses. Set in 1944. Maybe some more girls (and women ?). At least some girls with braids.

She wore lots of different clothes including dresses (without the cap).

I think, I don’t like her. Other scenes probably look better.

Rating 4-5 for now. Needs to be rechecked completetly for other girls and better scenes.

Comment: Tineke Van Der Walle at least sometimes in long blonde pigtails. I don’t remember all episodes, but I think she mostly had a ponytail or else.

She also wore pink bib overalls and beige shortalls. I don’t like her glasses.

At least one other young blonde girl in a different Enid Blyton series (“The Enid Blyton Adventure Series”), coming soon. Surprisingly obviously no scenes in The Famous Five (1995) which is set in the 1950s. And in The Famous Five (1978) the girl wore short hair.

Rating 5 for now only. For more infos, see my other blogs.

Bib overalls rating 7 (mainly for the boy, very baggy), bedroom blog rating 4.

Comment: At least Katharina Wäschebach here in ep 31 (s3e5, 2002) in longer pigtails fixed with strings. I haven’t seen this before. I think she rarely wore pigtails and has shorter hair in the earlier seasons. But I also have seen a pic of her in real, braided pigtails and maybe also a (shoulder) braid. Also a black girl with buns (ep 36, see my overalls blog) and younger Asian girl Kiki in black, unbraided pigtails.

Maybe some more girls (or women) (supporting actresses) like at school. At least some with ponytails (like Vanessa)

Quite interesting. Also on my bib overalls blog, f/m rating 5 and my bedroom blog (boys, rating 10).

For pigtails rating 5-6 for now. Needs to be rechecked.
