7 Aug

Year: 1967-1969
Year in film: 1960s
Country: USA
Who in bibs: Jerry /Jody 12-15
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: low ?
Rating:  7/10 ?
Rating: *******
Comment: Ron Howard starring in at least 2 episodes 1967+1969. At least in 1 episode (maybe 1967, so around 12 or 13 yo) in light blue bibs and a red T-Shirt sitting in a tree. Pics are from The Andy Griffith Show s8e1 in 1967, the same year looking quite similar.

How could I miss this? Salty (1973) is just on TV. Does anybody know Gentle Ben and can help? Both seasons are available on DVD. Is it worth buying? Clint is very young here, around 7 and even looking younger. I only know the remake.

I haven’t found any clips showing Ron. Just a pic from Getty. Ron is handsome and appeared in many good movies and series, some are on my bedroom blog. He also appeared in The Waltons s2e18 in bibs, around 19 yo.

Rating 7 for now.

    Cebollitas is indeed a great series for boys in overalls. I have found main characters Fede, Gamuza, Axel, Bocha, Nacho, Miyaguer, and a couple of other unknown boys in different bibs. Gamuza wears numerous different colors of overalls alone. Also have found Fede, Gamuza, and possibly other boys changing in and out of overalls in numerous locker room scenes.

    Keep finding more great overalls scenes of the boys in Cebollitas. Besides finding the changing scenes in the locker room the boys wear their bibs in many different styles and ways. The boys often wear their overalls in the series with both straps fastened, with one strap fastened and the other hanging loose, and also with no straps fastened with the bib front and straps hanging loose.

      Great job! Please tell me, what you think are the best scenes / best episodes. And if possible a complete list or parts of it.

      As there are so many scenes it’s maybe the best thing to make (later) separate entries for each character and list the (best) scenes there and maybe some additional updates like in The Waltons.

      BTW YCDTOTV is still not complete.
