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: 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)

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.

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: 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: 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.

Comment: At least this blonde girl with rather short pigtails from episode “Darkness Visible”. I don’t know her name. Also one blonde girl with unbraided pigtails in episode “Bertie” (bib overalls blog, rating 6). Probably some more. Also girls in ponytails.

Interesting series. But I only have checked it at high speed.

For pigtails rating 6 for now.

Comment: First I thought, that this is Kate McNeil as main character Louise in short, dark pigtails in s1e9 but it’s another girl (Kate Crosby). Kate McNeil sometimes wore a ponytail. Maybe also other actresses?

Also on my bedroom blog, rating 6, and my shiny shorts blog, rating 9.

Great series, but I prefer the 60s classic.

Rating 5-6.

Comment: One blonde girl with shorts pigtails and one darkhaired girl with thin and very long pigtails and a boy pulling or lifting one up.

Nice, early farm setting and also other scenes of interest like skinny dipping. But there are better movies. I think rather few good and brief pigtails scenes.

Correct title: Amintiri din copilărie, English title: Recollections from Childhood.

Rating 6-7.
