LHOTP spin-off. 35 episodes in 2 seasons
Year: 1981-1983
Year in film: 1870s
Country: USA
Who in bibs: several boys ~6-13ys
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: medium
Rating:  6/10
Rating: ******
Comment: At least 2-3 boys in light blue bibs + at least 1 older guest star boy in beige bibs. This is similiar to Little House on the Prairie (see that entry), also created by Michael Landon. Same clothes: most boys wearing brown pants with suspenders. This series is more focused on orphan boys instead of the girl Laura in LHOTP. It is also more Western like. I don’t know the complete series, but it looks quite as good as LHOTP and I think low-medium bib scenes. Image left from pilot film, image right from ep. 01.11 Eighty-Eight Keys to Happiness. I don’t know the names of the actors and have also to investigate and watch the whole series. I like these early films and series, although I don’t know if jeans overalls existed in 1870. I am also not sure, if this is worth buying the DVDs. LHOTP and The Waltons are surely better.

Also on my Western blog, rating 7.
