Books 65: Several, Susan K. Marlow

22 Aug

I found some new books, but as usual probably pics on the cover only (except for the Susan K. Marlow books below)

-Dagmar Scherf: Die Wölfe – Den Lederjacken auf der Spur  (kid ~12, probably a girl, also on audio CD)

-Brigitte Blobel: Zweistein & Co (older girl)

-Alice Gray: Pflaster fürs Herz – Storys für Teens (original: Stories for a Teen’s Heart) German edition, older teen boy

Susan K. Marlow:

I mentioned some of her book series some time ago, and now have checked some of them.

Most of the adventure books are about the girl Andi (Andrea) at different age in the 1870s and 80s. First, as 6 yo in the series Circle C Beginnings (illustrations), 9 yo in Stepping Stones (cover photo), 12 yo in the Circle C Adventures, and as older teen in the Milestones series. She often or always wore overalls and pigtails. Many mentionings on the Amazon inside search and often described as dirty and filthy.

Interesting in “Andrea Carter’s Tale from the Circle C Ranch”, where the little girl pleaded for wearing overalls for riding. Tomboy.

Also at least 2 boys (including cover photos) in bibs. 12 yo nephew Levy and teen boy Ryan (both at least in the Circle C Adventure series), Levy in “Family Secret” (one mentioning), Ryan in “Trouble with Treasure” (probably no mentionings).

The only book series aimed at boys is the Western series “Goldtown Adventures” with 12 yo Jem (one mentioning in “Tunnel Boy”, probably no pics).

Very interesting books, but mainly about girls. I still consider buying one.

For more infos and photos read my older post, linked above.


Ariel (1990s detergent ad)

21 Aug


I found this clip on one of my backups. Must be aired in the mid 1990s.

A boy in long white bibs, around 7 yo at school talking about how he got muddy while catching a frog (is shown) and his mom wasn’t angry (of the muddy bibs because she used this detergent).

At the end he is in a studio and happily dancing.

Quite interesting but as usual short and he’s very young. So rating 5-6. Sorry for the bad image quality. Probably available on YouTube but I haven’t searched for it. I think, there were also printed ads.

Country: USA, Canada
Who in bibs: Molly ~7 ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: very low
Rating:  3/10
Rating: ***
Comment: At least this girl, I think 6 or 7 yo Canadian Tabitha Lupien in blue bibs.

Although depicted on the DVD cover, I only found a very brief clip at 29 minutes.

So rating 2-3 for now only.

Also starring Cody Jones, but not in bibs. Typical comedy film. I don’t like it.

I also found Lindsey Lupien in The Santa Clause (1994), coming soon. I only have The Santa Clause 2.


Info 635: Tiere bis unters Dach – new episodes

19 Aug


This series is currently being rebroadcasted, weekends on DasErste. New episodes, ep 70-76, continuing of season 6 (s6e5-s6e13) will be aired on Sept, 8.

However I can’t say if there are actors in bibs anymore. There were fewer and fewer in recent episodes. Greta and Lilie grew much older and Jonas (Fynn Henkel) died in 2015 at age 19.

Also entries on most my other blogs. Pic from season 3.

Main entry, f/m, rating 6, now also with some updated, larger pics at


Update: Kidsongs 9 – A Day At Old Mac Donald’s Farm

19 Aug


I always remember the song “She’ll Be Comin’ ‘Round the Mountain” (Cedarmont Kids f/m rating 8), so I’ve checked, if there are clips from others. And I found a song from Kidsongs, I missed, although I already have entries from this DVD. Even the recent update 7 and update 8.

Here’s a boy in faded bibs with a red hanky in the rear pocket also sitting. Also an old man in bibs.

This and/or other farm clips are available on different DVDs. (Yankee Doodle Dandy, Practise Makes Perfect, Country Sing-A-Long, and others).

I also found a girl in colorful bibs and other boys. Coming soon, but probably, I already have them.


Also another update on my shiny shorts blog, rating 8.


Bokura no yûki – Miman toshi

18 Aug


Action series, 10 ep
Year: 1997
Year in film: 1990s
Country: Japan
Who in bibs: Mori ~13, others ?
Available on DVD: yes ?
I own: no
Bib occurence: low ?
Rating:  5/10 ?
Rating: *****
Comment: At least 13 or 14 yo Jun Matsumoto (*1983)  in beige and blue bibs. Maybe the boy in pic 4 wearing black bibs? Also grown-ups in coveralls.

Another suggestion. Thanks very much!

I have briefly checked most episodes, but found only few and brief scenes. I think also sitting scenes.

Aka “Bokura no Yuuki“, Japanese title:  “ぼくらの勇気 未満都市” or shortened “ぼくらの勇気” English titles:  Our Courage / Keys to the City – The Kids are in Charge; Miman City. There is also a 2017 sequel (which also needs to be checked).

Rating 5-6 for now. Are there even better scenes?

Pics 1+4 from ep 2 at 34 minutes, pic 2 from ep 2 at 18, pic 3 from ep 2 at 9.


Baywatch (1989) – s6e3

17 Aug


TV series, 243 episodes in 11 seasons
Year: 1989-2001
Year in film: 1996
Country: USA
Who in bibs: Bonnie ~12
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no, partly TV recording
Bib occurence: low ?
Rating:  4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: At least 12 or 13 yo Mila Kunis as blind girl Bonnie in white or almost white shortalls in episode “Hot Stuff” (s6e3, 1996). Wide straps. On pic 2 on the right is Beverley Mitchell but not in bibs.

I found this by coincidence. Still needs to check all episodes.

Mila Kunis also starred in one earlier episode (unknown if in bibs) and also in Milo (1998), rating 3.

For now, I have very few actors in Baywatch, currently rating 4, but I bet that there are much more.


Also of course on my shiny shorts blog, rating 8.

Piata lod

16 Aug


Year: 2017
Year in film: 2010s ?
Country: Slovakia, CZ, HU
Who in bibs: Kristian ~ 8 ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: low ??
Rating: 3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: At least this young boy (Matus Macisin /Matúš Bačišin) in dark blue shortalls, also sitting on the ground. His left strap is fixed and has a different color. Sorry, no better pics, yet. No scenes in the trailer. I only found some publicity pics.

I haven’t seen this complete movie, yet. Won a Crystal Bear in Berlin.

But he’s very young and I don’t like him.

So for bibs scenes rating 3 for now only. Needs to be rechecked later, also for other actors.

English titles: “She’s a Harbour” and “Little Harbour”. Original title: Piata loď.

Update: Danny Boy (1946)

16 Aug


I found a full stream and checked most parts of the movie but it was very disappointing.

The movie itself isn’t that bad. Handsome actors and even (partial) undressing and underwear scenes (at 18 minutes).

But concerning bibs scenes, it’s pretty bad. Only few and brief scenes of a young black boy in bibs at the beginning (rear view and front but from a distance).

And the older teen boy/young man from the main entry is obviously an old man. And the Baseball scenes don’t have any bibs scenes at all (sleeveless shirt or shadow). Farm location but no bibs there.

Previously rated 5, now ~2.
