Comment: Adam Reid (pic 2 on left and pic 1 on top), Matthew Godfrey (pic 2 on right and pic 1 2nd from right), girl M.J. Malcolm (pic 1 on right) in ep. 7.7 (Country, 1986) and Vanessa Lindores (pic 5 below) in bibs (ep. 7.14 Poverty and Unemployment, 1986), possibly more. One of my favourite Canadian shows of the 80s. These bibs are themed bibs for ep. Country and poverty and not their own/typical clothes. I’m not sure if any actor wears other bibs or shortalls. I can imagine Vanessa in them. On pic below blond boy on left is Doug Ptolemy, and Alasdair Gillis on right. There are some DVDs available with different amounts of discs, but I assume they are all not original releases. I have to check other episodes. Very good show, but due to few bib scenes I can only rate 6-7. See also


Also boys and girls in sailor suits (see my other blog, rating 8).

Update 2: I found Doug Ptolemy in bibs (pic 4)and also a teen girl sitting in show #4 (1979). Also on my bedroom blog (rating 10).


A Spin-off is Whatever Turns You On (rating 6) 15 ep. in 1979 with a boy, female looking teen boy and teen girl


Now rating 7 instead of 6. Older teen boy in raw denim bibs and also a girl. New tag sitting M and hickory stripes. Also on my sailor suit, shiny shorts and bedroom blogs.
