Comment: Several girls at school at different age in pigtails. Different actresses in different seasons. Most and best scenes in seasons 2+3. Western(-like) setting in the 1910s or earlier. Nice dresses (mainly in season 1)

Pic 1 from s1e4, pics 2+4 from s2e5 showing a teen girl in long pigtails who touched (the top of) them. One younger girl in pic 4 sitting in pink (white appearing) clothes has long, dark pigtails on the back of her head (“modern style” braided).

Pic 3 showing a very young, blonde girl in s3e6. Behind her another, a bit older girl who is very good.

Not sure about women and braids.

Currently running on German’s Bibel TV. Also on my bib overalls blog (rating 5) and soon on my other blogs.

Comment: Betsy Gay (“Our Gang“, “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1938)“) in long, blonde pigtails.

I like long, blonde pigtails, but I think rather few scenes here. Unfortunately, she did few movies.

Rating 6.

Comment: Must be Canadian Emily Perkins in quite long, dark pigtails and bib overalls. Not sure of other actors.

Also on my other blog, rating 5, with some more pics of her.

Great movie with several good scenes. Starring Jonathan Brandis.

Rating 6, but I have to recheck all episodes more carefully.

Also to check: the 2017 remake.

Comment: Some, mainly younger and darkhaired girls in pigtails. At least one younger blonde girl. Plaiting scenes near the beginning and touching own pigtails. Also wet hair in a creek. Most pigtails are rather short (and thin) and have ribbons (different colors).

Interesting movie. Rated R. Fantasy/Coming-of-age movie. Not sure about the time setting. Maybe 1960s or 70s?

For pigtails rating ~5-6.

Comment: One young, blonde girl with very long pigtails. Around 1m. Also wet and shirtless. I think also a darkhaired woman or older girl at least with a long shoulder braid. Maybe some more supporting actresses.

Quite interesting movie. But pigtails are thick.

Rating 5-6.

Comment: At least this blonde girl or young teen girl in long pigtails and a hat. Either uncredited or maybe Amanda Sonju?

Very interesting ranch movie starring Kieran Culkin and Erik von Detten set in the 1950s.

Also on my bedroom and western blog.

For pigtails rating 6-7. Needs to be rechecked for other (supporting) actresses (girls, women). But I assume rather few scenes.

Comment: At least this darkhaired girl in quite long, strict pigtails and beige ribbons. Another interesting series by David Cobham (Bernard’s Watch, Woof, Out of Sight). Novel by BB. Pic from ep 11.

I found this by coincidence and don’t know all episodes, yet.

Nice 1920s setting and clothes. Obiously few or very few scenes. Main characters are 3 brothers. Needs to be checked for other actresses (women ?) and also for sailor suits and bedrooms or other scenes of interest. At least shirtless scenes of the boys.

Rating 6 for now. Available on DVD.

Comment: At least one blonde girl, around 11 or 12 yo in rare pigtails on the front, only plaited on the upper half and only of some of her hair. Also in unbraided pigtails and open hair. And a younger, blonde girl with pigtails and ponytail (ep 11). Pic 1 from ep 1.

Very interesting series. Also on my bedroom blog, rating 5.

For pigtails, rating 5-6 for now. Series itself rating ~7. Also soon on my bib overalls blog (girl, woman, rating 5).

Obviously still not on DVD. German title “Ein Rucksack voller Abenteuer” English title “A Knapsack Full of Adventures”.
