Update: Knokken voor twee

20 Sep


Some more scenes and pics of this film, I forgot and to better show the style of the tight bibs and a better pic of the girl in black bibs (simple suspenders only and also sitting). I later read, that there was also an extended TV series but that is not available at all. (Movie is on VHS or YouTube).

At least 2 cycling scenes, also of the boy in pic 1. But rather brief scenes and from a distance.

There’s also a young man (Peter Bos) in olive rubber bibs, I also forgot. Also nice shirts and good setting.

Main entry, rating 8




Knokken voor twee

16 Sep


Family film/series 6 ep.
Year: 1982
Year in film: 1980s
Country: The Netherlands
Who in bibs: boys, girl ~11 ?
Available on DVD: no *
I own: no
Bib occurence: often
Rating:  8/10 ?
Rating: ********
Comment: At least 3 boys in tight blue bibs (dark, medium and light blue) and at least one girl at the end in black or similar dark bibs. Many scenes including cycling and sitting scenes. One boy is 12 yo Freddie.

A YouTube recommendation. Directed by Karst van der Meulen. Similar like De Zevensprong with partly the same actors, also from 1982.

The plot is not as good as the previous post, but much more and better bibs scenes.

I have checked it at high speed only. Rating at least 8.

Pic 1 is a brief scene at the beginning.

The series in not on DVD. The movie is on VHS. Update: tags men (Peter bos in olive rubber bibs), tag TV, tag Sitting F. Some more pics at



Update 2: Die Kinder vom Alstertal

25 Aug


I found some more good scenes of boys and girls and even another boy.

Pic 1 from s3e13 showing the blonde girl Merle kneeing in dark blue bibs (at some time, I wasn’t sure if this is a boy),

pic 2 showing Tobias sitting in blue bibs in s1e1. Bib is at very low position when standing. On the left his older film brother Timo (unfortunately not in bibs).

Pic 3 showing Kiki kneeing on the ground in s1e1. Also learning cycling in s1e4. She also wore shortalls later.

Pic 4 showing Tobias and another young boy in s1e3.

Also on on my other blogs, except the Western blog. Merle and Niklas soon on my sailor suit blog, an update on my shiny shorts blog also coming soon.

Nice farm series. But I don’t like at all Tobias. Handsome boys Timo and Sebastian don’t wear bibs. Best for me is Lisa. Main entry rating 5 at



Boule & Bill 2

24 Aug


Comedy film. Based on comic
Year: 2017
Year in film: 1970s
Country: France, Belgium
Who in bibs: Boule ~11 ?, other boys
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence:  medium+
Rating:  6/10 ?
Rating: ******
Comment: Charlie Langendries as redhaired Boule (pic 1 and pic 3 on the right) in blue bibs but also in pants with suspenders. At least 2 other boys in bibs including probably his younger friend Pouf (Lionel Malempré). Cycling scenes and maybe wet scenes as they drive into a lake. 1970s setting. Pic 3 is probably from behind the scenes.

And yet another suggestion. Thanks very much!

I only found trailers and teasers. So needs to be rechecked later. Rating 6 for now.

I also have the 2013 movie (boy, rating 4), but part 2 is obviously much better and has more scenes.


Also soon on my bedroom blog, rating ~6.


Update: Canicule (1984)

25 Jul


I wanted to replace my tiny pics of this movie. I haven’t found, yet the original pics from Felix (unfortunately he closed his blog, I think I have higher res pics on an old PC or backup), so I checked an online stream.

Sorry for the bad image quality. I don’t like this actor, 16 yo but much younger looking David Bennent (The Tin Drum, Die Blechtrommel) but bibs are interesting. He’s wearing a belt and also has his bib down (touching and hanging down over the belt).


Also a (motor) cycling scene, I haven’t noticed before. But I think, rather few scenes at the beginning and end. Main entry, still rating 5 at


Thanks db1, for submitting better pics of Eight is Enough (1977), boy rating 7. I will make another “huge” update soon. (I make separate updates, especially when there are new actors found, new facts/tags or too much (new or old) pics.


Update: Gold Diggers: The Secret of Bear Mountain

24 Jul


I have rechecked this movie (as usual at high speed) and there are some more and even better scenes than assumed/remembered.

14 or 15 yo Christina Ricci cycling, but also soaked wet scenes (adding tag wet). But I think no or few (good) rear views.

Women in blue and khaki bibs. Most are all straps are tied and not the usual braces.

The image quality of this stream is quite bad and I haven’t found the first pic, so leaving the older tiny ones.

Main entry, previously rating 4, now ~5-6 at

Available on DVD: no *
I own: no
Bib occurence: low+
Rating:  6/10
Rating: ******
Comment: From my rare movies list. I finally found a stream on (under the subtitle) after 5 years search. A boy, I think it’s Jason Hervey (brother Wayne in The Wonder Years) in dark blue bibs, also sitting and lifting up the pant legs before. Later inside baking, spotted with flour. Also a girl cycling but brief scene only. Not sure if maybe hickory stripes. Another older girl in a dark blue jeans dress (or skirtalls).

Aka “Night Swimmers” (jeans shorts). Also starring Jason Lively (“European Vacation”) in long red hair, but not in bibs.

Main overview of all known Afterschool Specials featuring bibs, rating up to 10


Update: The Witches of Eastwick (1987) f,m

18 Jul


Previously no pics at all, I now have checked this movie. Next to Cher, there are also young boys in bibs.

The bibs of Cher aren’t that bad. Sleeveless shirt and work belt and cycling scenes.

One more pic (cycling) in the main entry.

Previously rated 2 now 4. I don’t like Cher nor very young boys.




Timebreakers – auf der Suche nach dem geheimnisvollen Heidekristall

27 Apr


Family adventure film. No budget
Year: 2016
Year in film: 2010s
Country: Germany
Who in bibs: Leni 8
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: medium ?
Rating:  2/10 ?
Rating: **
Comment: At least one girl, 8 yo but even younger looking Leni Eves (first I thought Lillie) (gang member are between 8-11 yo) in short, light blue shortalls and pink tights and shirt underneath. Obviously also cycling scenes. Many supporting actors. I’ve also seen a pic of a young woman in shortalls (I think on the official site), but not sure if it’s in the movie as well or a mom or more likely someone of the crew.

And yet another suggestion. Thanks very much!

The girl is very young. I don’t like her, nor pink tights.

Rating 2-3 for now only. Could be a good kids film though.

Update: Die Kinder vom Alstertal

21 Apr


During research for my other blogs, I have checked some more episodes of this great German family farm series and found some more scenes and another girl in bibs. I found this before starting my “huge updates” and this are different episodes and later seasons, so I make a separate update just for this. Previously rated 4, but I think I have to give at least rating 5-(6). I don’t like Tobias and my favourite is Lisa (pics 3+5) and of course Marco Soumik as Timo and Sebastian, but unfortunately they didn’t wore bibs.

Pic 1 showing older Kiki in blue bibs in ep 31 (s3e5), she also wore shortalls (see main entry). Pic 2 showing a black girl, probably called Rose in ep 36 (s3e10) in blue bibs (or shortalls).

Pic 4 showing Tobias sitting in blue bibs (unknown earlier episode, season 1 ?, new tag Sitting M), Pic 5 is from the main entry, pic3 new but from the same episode. I mainly remember seasons 1+2 (which are the best) and have to recheck all episodes, especially s3+4.

On my bedroom blog (rating 10), I now found a bunk bed (Timo+Tobias). Also on my shiny shorts blog (no pic except for the prequel series, Neues vom Süderhof). Soon on my pigtails blog (Lisa). Good plots and handsome actors, some wearing dental braces (f/m). I recently also listen to Marco’s music which partly appear in some episodes.

Kiki in orange shortalls in ep 26+29 and blue bibs in ep 2+3+5, young girl Merle in blue bibs in ep 23. I have to check for more actors, maybe women and men as well? Although farm setting, I mainly remember Tobias in bibs.
