Comment: Good series, but few bib scenes alltogether. Most boys wear brown pants with suspenders. At least 11 boys with blue jeans bibs (in the complete series, mosty short scenes and guest stars). Some boys with brown and beige bibs. Occasionally some episodes with longer scenes with bibs.

Pic top right: ep. 1.05 The Love of Johnny Johnson. Johnny Johnson wears light blue bibs in that episode. Top left image: Laura (yellow cap) ep. 1.2 Country Girls. Pic bottom right from season 5 (or later ?)
See also spin-off called Father Murphy.

Known episodes with bibs (to be continued, but I missed some episodes):
Season 1:
Episode 2, Country Girls. (image top left) first day at school. Robert Hoffmann on left I think (same as on top right)
Ep. 5, The Love of Johnny Johnson (pic top right), boy with dark cap (red hair) is called Patrick. For Johnny see tag stories 21.
Episode 20, Child of Pain. Johnny Lee ~ 9ys. in dark blue bibs (not jeans fabric, no braces, but buttons).
Also at least 1 man in brown bibs.
And other episodes. See separate season entries.

Season 2:
Episode 6, The Spring Dance. Clay O’Brien as Henry Henderson ~12 ys in medium blue bibs (also buttons instead of braces), picture bottom left.
Episode 10, At the End of the Rainbow. Shane Sinutko as Jonah 10 ys in dark blue bibs. Scuffle on the ground, fishing.
Episode 20 , Centennial. Ike Eisenmann ~11ys in blue real bibs! But a bit too small.
Season 3:
Episode 20, The Election. Eric Olson as Elmer Dobkins ~12 ys in light blue jeans bibs. Bibs a bit too small. He is bullied by 2 boys (muddy=wet+sitting). Good bib scenes.

Season 5:

Season 7:
Ep.8 Two boys at school ~7-8 ys in light blue jeans bibs. Short scenes

Seasons 8+9:
I don’t noticed any bib scenes there. A good swimming scene in season 9. Ep 9.12 (without bibs). In LHOTP-films I saw also no bibs, but not sure.

Edit: originally I rate 5, now 6. Ep. 4.12 girl rating 9.

Update: Sitting (boy) at least in Season 3.

Update 2: Laura in blue bibs (audition) and an older boy in beige bibs in the post-series movies specials
