Lego 1985 ad

11 Dec


Toy commercials
Year: 1985
Year in film: ~1985
Country: USA ?
Who in bibs: boy ~5 ?
Available on DVD: no ?
I own: no
Clothing occurrence: low+
Rating:  2/10
Rating: **
Comment: One very young, blonde boy in dark blue jeans bibs sitting and playing Lego. 2 older handsome brothers and a girl, but not in bibs. Not sure about the nationality like other global companies. Language is American English but could be dubbed. Somehow they don’t look American.

YouTube title:  Retro Commercials Vol 26 – 1985.

For the young boy rating 2 only.



Update: Summer of the Monkeys

9 Dec


I have rechecked this movie, and next to handsome Corey Sevier there are some few more boys in front of the school in dark blue bibs (but mainly or only from a distance) and also men in bibs.

Corey’s bibs are patched and hickory striped. As usual, this can only be seen in streams with a better image quality and/or close-up scenes. Pic 2 is from the trailer.

Some nice scenes, climbing out of the window and fighting, landing on the ground. Also riding.

Western-like setting although set in 1910. Also in regular jeans and pants with suspenders, soon on my Western blog, rating 6.

I don’t like faded nor hickory stripes. Main entry (including the novel) still rating 6

Comment: A very young boy (?) in white bibs also riding at the (1983) intro.

Not sure if there are different intros during the years.

Rating 2-3 for this.


Main overview of Afterschool and other specials


Book 81: Johanna Spyri: Schloss Wildenstein

5 Dec

By coincidence, I found a nice cover with a boy sitting on the grass in light blue bibs. 1959 edition, publisher Neuer Jugendschriften-Verlag. Cover image by “Oliver” (Oliver Vaberg ?). Illustrations by Jochen (J. Vaberg). I don’t know of any inside illustrations with bibs at least a boy with suspenders (rear view).

A ghost story for kids by Johanna Spyri (“Heidi”). The text (1892) is Public Domain (unlike the illustrations). I have briefly checked for the German word “Latz” for bib, but haven’t found anything. Later editions show a boy in Lederhosen.

I have finished the “Circle C Adventures” and there were only few descriptions of the boy. I’m currently reading one of the Western books of this author but don’t assume bibs scenes there.

Gardening (1940)

4 Dec


Encyclopedia Britannica Films / ERPI Classroom Films
Year: 1940
Year in film: ~1940
Country: USA
Who in bibs: boy ~10 ?
Available on DVD: no ?
I own: no
Bib occurence: very low
Rating:  3/10
Rating: ***
Comment: One boy in dark blue jeans bibs. Very few and brief scenes. He also wore a jacket kneeing on the grass.

I searched for some more educational movies from Encyclopaedia Britannica but  only found this one showing bibs. Some few more EB films soon on my other blogs. I haven’t checked for ERPI films and just found an even better one (coming soon).

No entry on IMDb. Available on (PD).

Rating 3 only.



Mr. Mom (1983)

3 Dec


Comedy film, Michael Keaton
Year: 1983
Year in film: 1980s
Country: USA
Who in bibs: Jack 32, Kenny 6, Megan ~3 ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurrence: low
Rating:  2/10
Rating: **
Comment: Michael Keaton in blue bibs, one side button open, ~6 yo Taliesin Jaffe in medium blue bibs at least in a shopping cart and the toddler sister played by Brittany and Courtney White at least in light blue bibs.

Also other scenes of interest like a bathtub scene. Nice bedroom (other blog, rating 7).

I don’t remember the complete movie. Nice, but typical 80s movie.

But the kids are very young and rather few good scenes.

So rating 2-3 only. Needs to be rechecked for other, supporting actors.

Dennis the Menace (1993)

30 Nov


Family film
Year: 1993
Year in film: 1990s
Country: USA
Who in bibs: Dennis ~6
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: often ?
Rating:  3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: I already mentioned Mason Gamble in the Dennis the Menace main overview and have one pic (shirtless in long blue bibs), but by coincidence I also found him in  these olive shortalls (probably much fewer scenes in those).

I still have to recheck the complete movie.

I prefer the classic series with Jay North, although b&w and no jeans fabric. Now also on my bedroom blog. Mason Gamble is funny but also annoying and too young, around 6 yo.

So still rating ~3-4.



Update: Los olvidados

28 Nov


And another movie completely rechecked. Several boys in raw denim bibs but rather few scenes of them and mainly from a distance. One older teen boy shirtless in more faded bibs and some younger boys are more often shown.

Not bad, so still rating 5. Adding tag Sitting M and farm. Main entry



Update: Summer of My German Soldier

26 Nov


I already have announced this and added 3 new pics (much better), so even some more. I also have given rating 7-(8) instead of 4 (for the boy, I think it’s Roy Morris). Kristy McNichol wore at least 3 different bibs and is much more often shown.



National Dairy Board 80s ads

25 Nov



Food commercials (milk, cheese)
Year: 1983, 1985
Year in film: 1980s
Country: USA
Who in bibs: boys, girls ~8 ?
Available on DVD: no ?
I own: no
Clothing occurrence: medium
Rating:  6/10
Rating: ******
Comment: Pic 1 is from a 1983 “Milk is good” commercial showing both boys and girls in colorful bibs standing and sitting.

Earlier, I found pic 2 showing 2 young twin girls probably in pink skirtalls from a 1985 “Real Cheese” commercial (YouTube clip “Retro commercials Vol 26 – 1985”).

Maybe there are even more commercials from that company showing bibs?

Rating 6 for pic 1, and rating ~2-3 for the skirtalls Reminds me of the Olsen twins.


Also soon on my Western blog (clip 1, boy rating ~4-5).

Also on Full House (1987) rating 4, It Takes Two (1995), rating 6.
