Comment: Some darkhaired young girls in pigtails, at least one with very long pigtails. Others with their pigtails or braids bound up (crown and looped pigtails) also a blonde young lady (Kirsten Dunst ?). There are 3 younger girls including Angourie Rice, Oona Laurence and Addison Riecke. Not sure who is the girl pictured, probably Oona Laurence.

I don’t know the complete movie. So needs to be rechecked later.

Nice costumes and early setting.

There’s also a 1971 movie with at least a young girl in pigtails, coming soon.

Comment: One very young girl with very long, blonde pigtails and one of her older brothers pulling at both of her pigtails multiple times and even shaking her head. Then she turns around and chasing him. Probably more pigtails scenes, maybe also of others, but none of interest.

Another interesting pulling pigtails movie. But the girl is very young.

Also recently updated on my bib overalls blog (boys, girls mainly snow overalls, rating 3) and my bedroom blog, rating 3 as well with all 5 kids sharing one bed. Also other scenes of interest. Funny movie but there are better ones.

For more infos see my other blogs. English title “I Enjoy the World With You”, “With You the World is Fun”, With You the World Thrills Me” and “You Take the Kids!”.

For this brief scene rating 3 only due to her age.

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: Obviously Gina Gillespie in very long, dark blonde pigtails pictured in s6e8 (1961). Probably some more girls and women (seasons 1-5 are in b&w). She also starred in s5e26, but I haven’t seen this one (probably similar). I also have her in Law of the Plainsman, rating 7 (b&w).


Also some Indians in pigtails like Joseph Vitale in s3e8 and others in s3e7.

Very good and even in color.

Also soon on my Western blog, rating ~7-8.

Rating ~8. But needs to be rechecked for other actresses and episodes.

Comment: At least Heather O’Rourke pictured 1983 in season 1 (s1e8 Travis ?, clip says s1e9 1984, at least 1984 is wrong) in very long, blonde pigtails. How could I miss her? She only appeared in 3 episodes.

She’s quite young, so only rating 7.

Also on my bedroom blog and my bib overalls blog (boy), both rating 3.

Probably some more girls or women in pigtails as there were many supporting actors. I don’t know all episodes. Only season 1-4 are available on DVD.

–Comment: Some girls, most at school in different pigtails and braids. One younger girl at home (young sister of main character) in very long, medium blonde pigtails, at school some older girls mainly in dark pigtails but short. Also at least one redhaired older girl in long pigtails.

Comment: At least main character Heidi, played by Elsbeth Siegmund in very long, dark pigtails, also looped.

Today on 3sat. Also the 1955 color sequel.

Not bad, but I think rather few pigtails scenes. Needs to be recheckd later and also the later Heidi movies.

I have some few other Heidi movies on my Lederhosen blog. But also very few, almost no Lederhosen. Some showing Heidi or teen girl Klara in sailor (style) dresses.

I think I don’t like this version and actress. Nice room.

Rating 5-6 for now.
