Comment: At least this Indian teen boy from the Blackfoots, Martin God Rider (1924-1966), I think in 3 pigtails (one additional one on the rear). Probably some more Indian men

Originally in b&w, this pics are from a colorized version.

I only have checked it briefly. Maybe women in pigtails as well? Shirley has curly hair, partly braided.

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.

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.

Comment: At least 3 girls in pigtails, mainly at the beginning. Not the twins, unlike the classic movie. Most notable a redhaired girl with thick pigtails in- and outside the boarding school. One other young girl with pigtails of parts of her hair and one older teen girl. Many supporting actors. Maybe some more in the background. Also others in ponytails, like the twins, I think also braids and similar

Has been aired today. And I’ve even seen it almost completetly. The 2nd half is very boaring and not showing the many (girls) of the boarding school.

Also some good scenes of girls and boys in swimwear (shorts). And nice bunkbeds. Soon on both my other blogs.

Rating 6-7 for pigtails.

Comment: Dana Hill as tomboy Ellie around 18 yo but looking much younger due to a disease, in dark pigtails and faded bib overalls, also with a hat. Also other hairstyles like a crown (braid on top of the head). Later also in a dress but I think not in pigtails.

Also on my overalls blog, rating 5 (next to boys and a woman).

Dana Hill (“European Vacation”) died in 1996 aged 32.

Comment: At least 2 girls in dark pigtails, one younger girl (unpictured). One girl (Nicolais Borger ?) in unbraided pigtails and additional donkey ears (same as animated Pinocchio). Maybe the same girl as in pic 2? Rather few girls in pigtails.

Has been aired around Christmas but I missed some parts.

Nice historical setting and clothes. Funny movie.

Rating 6. Other versions needs to be checked as well.

Comment: One older girl in thin, blonde pigtail (she’s the older sister of one the boys of the gang) and a very young girl of the gang in short, bend, protruding pigtails. The young girl also riding and other scenes, referring to Pippi Longstocking.

Funny family movie but mainly the very young kids (inventors) are shown.

English title: Fiddlesticks.

Rating 7-8 for the older girl (I don’t remember her name).

Not sure about the time setting. Old and modern setting obviously mixed.

Comment: Some, also younger girls and women in different pigtails, braids, buns and the like.

I don’t watch the recent episodes, just the older episodes being broadcasted weekdays at noon. There’s one young girl, I think at pic 1, often sporting pigtails around episodes 790. Pic from ep 834 (2001). Pic 2 showing a blonde girl in ep 1593 with a thick shoulder braid.

Pic is showing a young lady in ep 824 (2001) with 2 thin braids on one side. I don’t know their names.

Also unpictured in pigtails: a blonde young woman (Ulrike Scheel as Ute, plays in ep 684-983 working at a hairdresser), a darkhaired girl (Selma Baldursson as Meike), around 10 yo, a blonde girl, around 7 yo in 1998 episode “Karpfen blau”. Most of the earlier episodes are not online.

I have to make updates later.

Nice, but huge series, also on my bib overalls blog, (f,m, girls, women) rating up to 7.

For pigtails rating 5-6 for now only.

Rating: ******
Comment: Judith Hellebronth as Anica (pics 1+3) in buns and even 4 pigtails (ep 16), one other teen girl in thick, long blonde pigtails (ep 2 ?). Probably some more.

I don’t like much this series and preferred Schloss Einstein. Fabrixx mainly had teens, many street kids, no bib overalls, too many girls and few handsome boys (except Kevin). Setting mainly in and around the youth club instead of a boarding school.

I don’t remember all girls or all episodes. Many early episodes have been deleted.

Rating 6 for now.

Update, also another girl (Esther ?) and a woman in a braid.
