Rating:  3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: At least Lena Wisborg as Emil’s young sister in blonde, short and thin pigtails. Maybe some more supporting actors like at school (ep 9).

I never liked this series, especially not Emil. And Ida is very young. There are better Astrid Lindgren series.

Needs to be rechecked later. Currently running on TV.

Please note that there’s a TV series and some shortened movies, containing only parts of the episodes.

Also on my sailor suit blog under “Emil och griseknoen” rating 6 and my bedroom blog rating 3.

Rating:  4/10 *
Rating: ****
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 Marny Kennedy in rather short pigtails. Pictured in s1e20.

I think she rarely had pigtails but often a ponytail.

I somehow like her. Great series, but needs to be rechecked, also for other girls. Also in pigtails in “The Saddle Club”, 2 years later, next to other girls.

So rating 6-7 for now.

Also on my shiny shorts blog, including girls and her (rating 6).

Comment: At least this girl, I think Alexandra, pictured from song Smoorverliefd from 1997 episode 18 in short pigtails. I don’t remember all episodes. Probably some few more girls (also unbraided pigtails).

Very good show, often great songs, cute kids and catchy tunes.

Also on my bib overalls blog, rating up to 8 (boys and girls).

Needs to be rechecked, especially for earlier episodes.

Rating 6-7 for now.

Comment: Some girls, teen girls and women in pigtails, mainly short ones. Pic 1 showing a blonde girl (Maria ?) in blue checkered bibs. Video #608 in 1999. Pic 2 is from s2e6, pic 3 from ep 335, pic 3 from “A chegada de Pata”.

Also on my bib overalls blog, several entries rating 6, also showing a teen girl. Also unbraided pigtails, ponytails, buns and else. The young girl is very often shown.

Not to be confused with the 1995 Argentinian series, rating 6, nor the 2013 series. When the image quality is good, then it’s most likely a different series.

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.

Rating: *******
Comment: Some girls in pigtails. I first thought, that I already had an entry and just wanted to make an update of the redhaired girl. Series is currently running weekends on German DasErste (season 1).

My favourite is blonde Paulina (Tabea Hug, pics 1+3 from ep 43=season 4, so ~11 yo, but also younger shown) in long pigtails. Pic 4 showing young Lilie (s1e4) in blonde, looped pigtails. I think also later in regular ones and other hair styles.

Pic 2 showing a redhaired girl (Zora Achtnich as Celine) with rather short pigtails in ep 6. I think also other (older) girls and maybe women in pigtails. I don’t remember all episodes.

Also on my bib overalls blog (f,m rating up to 6 including firefighters) and on my shiny shorts blog.

Rating even 7 for now.

Update more pics of Lilie in season 2 with all kinds of pigtails (rating 5)
