23 Nov


TV family drama

Year in film: 1970s ?
Country: USA
Who in bibs: Soup ~11, girl ~12, man

Rating:  6/10
Rating: ******
Comment: I think Christian Berrigan (pic 1) around 11 or 12 yo as Soup in faded, blue bibs, a girl (both with the bib at low position) and later a man. Some scenes mainly or only at the beginning. S2e6. There’s a scene in a classroom but probably with no others in bibs.

I only previously knew “Soup and Me” ABC Weekend Specials s1e11 (same actors, even also one very brief bibs scene, I never noticed before, coming soon), but now I found this one on YouTube (first in a very bad Super 8 quality, than this much better one) .

Very interesting. I even own both books and some more. Setting in the books is in the 1930s (but timeless) I think here in the 1970s.

Also starring Shane Sinutko (LHOTP like Berrigan) as Rob, but not in bibs. 24 minutes.

Main entry for all Afterschool and similar Specials
