Update : Cedarmont Kids

26 Jun


I have checked many clips, around 50 from different DVDs. Much more scenes than assumed, including boys and girls in raw denim bibs, boys and girls in shortalls, also shirtless boys. Also riding scenes, barefoot scenes and men in bibs. Maybe half of the songs, especially the bible songs don’t show bibs. Few teens.

Pics 1+5 are from “Jack and Jill”. Nice raw denim bibs also close-ups. The girl making a forward roll. Also rear views.

Pic 2 is from “Skip To My Lou”. Again the boy in raw denim bibs. The other boy in faded bibs and a yellow shirt. He makes a somersault (also rear view).

Pic 3 is from “Farmer in the Dell”. At least one boy in shortalls and a straw hat. One other boy and at least 2 girls in bibs. Also very good, like the catchy tune.

Pic 4 is from “Sarasponda” showing a boy in raw denim bibs barefoot.

Unpictured: (More entries coming later)

“Lord, I want to be a Christian” one girl in light blue shortalls, one black girl in khaki shortalls, both ~12 yo and sitting.

“I Shall Not be Moved” One older black girl in blue shortalls, one blonde girl in black bibs.

“Six Little Ducks” A young girl in yellow/white striped shortalls.

“Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush” the young blonde boy shirtless in white or similar shortalls. Also a very young girl, ~4-5 yo in light blue shortalls and a girl in light blue bibs.

“Do Lord” (Sunday School Songs) An older girl in longer skirtalls, colorful skirt.

“Row, Row, Row Your Boat” A boy in dark blue shortalls, girl in long faded bibs.

“Baa, Baa, Black Sheep” A boy kneeing in black bibs, an Asian girl sitting in blue shortalls.

“Old MacDonald Had a Farm” A young blonde girl riding in faded bibs

“Polly Put the Kettle On” 2 boys shirtless+2 girls sitting behind a table. One boy in white bibs, other in black. One young blonde igtailed girl in black.

“I Bought Me a Cat” Boy in raw denim, 1 or 2 others in blue sitting. I think 3 girls sitting in shortalls.

“Mary Had a Little Lamb” One boy in black bibs. 1 or 2 other boys in medium blue bibs.

Probably some more. Also soon on my shiny shorts blog (f, m rating 5).

My favorite is still “She’ll Be Comin’ ‘Round the Mountain”. I also found a clip without lyrics. I also considered bying DVDs, but in Germany they are extremely expensive.

db1 also provided pics for Young People’s Specials: Umbrella Jack, starring 10 yo Joey Lawrence.

Comment: Some boys and girls in bibs. Thanks to the recent suggestion, I found this on YouTube by coincidence, first pics 3-5 which are from the song “School Days”. One younger, blonde boy in raw denim bibs (also brief rear view) and 2 older boys in blue shirts. Also outside the one-room schoolhouse, but from a distance.

Pics 1+2 are from the song “She’ll Be Comin’ ‘Round the Mountain” which is even better and also has girls. And good sitting scenes, also of older girls. Both from DVD Songs of America. I haven’t checked all songs and episodes, but  have to give at least rating 8 for now.

Reminds me of the Kidsongs vids, often same songs. I think I have to check it out more and make more entries. Can anybody help finding the best clips?

Update: Also boys sitting in raw denim bibs and girls in shortalls in “I Bought Me A Cat”. A young boy in baggy bibs in “There’s a Hole in the Bucket”. Also a boy in shortalls and hay scenes in “Do Your Ears Hang Low?”. Also at least earlier clips, so the blonde boy is even shown younger in 1995.

Update: Much more clips. Also barefoot and riding scenes. Skirtalls and old men.

Available on DVD: yes
I own: yes

Rating:  10/10
Rating: **********
Comment: As announced a first, separate entry. My first of the 5 DVDs and still my favourite. I already have more pics of this movie in other posts. Please note, that all my pics are not necessarily showing the best scenes as I don’t show too indescent pics like close-ups. I try to describe my favourite scenes. There are lots.

Most shown and most notable is Dragonfly (Kody Brown, pic 1, 3 and 2 on left). I like the dark green shirt. Funny scenes with the hat of the female teacher (also good rear view of him). Pic 2 also showing chubby Poetry in dark blue bibs. Good plot which is a mix of books #6+7.

Very good are following scenes: Beginning (pic 1), Dragonfly announced finding the cave (pic front, here under Dragonfly pic 2) and even better hunker down (rear view), another one of that in the DVD extras, in the cave when leaving it (front), sitting on the grass after school when Big Jim shows the letter (pic main entry pic 1), near the end 2 lying scenes, one in the cave and at the end at Old Man Paddler. Also some few sitting scenes, also of others like young Tom, but I don’t like much the other actors. No or few shirtless and wet scenes.

Good scenes at 5,9,12,15,26,35,37,44,46 swing no bibs, 54, 1h02 lying, 1h03,1h05,1h07 underwear,1h13. Also many good scenes at the extras (Behind the scenes 1,3,8,12, Bloopers 3, photo galleries lots, especially #3). Kody’s sister is shown at school like at 52 minutes, sitting behind him looking similar but not in bibs. Bill and Little Jim sharing a bed at 50′.



Sugar Creek Gang – characters

22 Jun


After The Waltons, I’m now watching again The Sugar Creek Gang movies (currently film 5, missing film 1 and parts of film 3). Initially, I don’t want to use many pics and at the beginning, I only had 2 tiny pics, showing some of the actors. But there are 5 movies, several actors and many bibs scenes.

The movies are probably rather unknown outside the US, and in case someone don’t know all the movies or don’t know, who’s who, I make this list, showing the characters and their overalls. I’m still not sure, if everybody just wore one pair each. Due to the simple camera, some occur much lighter in the sun and darker in the backlight and when wet. I have to compare them, especially in film 5 and 1.

I will create separate posts of each of the movies, soon.



My favourite actor and all time rank #2. He wore faded bibs, bib at low position. Legs cuffed up when in water. Beige sneakers. Maybe the actor, showing the most in bibs. He wore them always, except at the Revival (~80% of film 3, tight purple cotton pants) and when swimming (shirtless tight jeans shorts, film 3+1). Soaked wet in bibs in film 2, also good rear view. Also wet in film 2 (rear, distance). Good close-ups and sitting in film 5. My favourite is still film 4. More infos later.



Youngest actor (except for toddlers) and he always wore bibs, even in church and at the Revival (+tie) but less shown than Dragonfly. He becomes part of the gang at the end of film 4. Often shown shirtless in bibs. Brother, also in real life, of Big Bob. Best are the photos at the DVD extras (sitting rear). Often sitting, rather few rear views. Best movie maybe film 2. Some funny scenes. Often being pulled at the bib by Bob, once pulling Bob at his.

Big Bob


The bad guy. Also always in bibs and mostly shirtless but not shown that often. Oldest character besides the men and older brother of Tom. Faded bibs with holes at the knee. Bibs are very baggy. Best scenes including wet in film 3 and 5. His bibs appear light blue in film 5. Could be another pair or maybe just washed.



Chubby boy. Around half of the time in bibs. Least in films 4+3. Then in regular jeans. Men’s bibs, legs cuffed up. Bib often at low position. Side button(s) open. Bibs are dark blue, almost raw denim, at least in film 5 (pics 2+3). Not sure if they are 2 different pairs. Few sitting scenes.

Little Jim


Very handsome boy, but only in bibs in film 5. Light blue, faded bibs, also sitting, but rather few and brief scenes only. Best scene hanging at a swing, together with Bill (Bill not in bibs). More infos later. Also sitting in nice swim shorts in film 3 (shiny shorts blog, rating 7, not pictured).

Other actors

Rest of the gang, including pigtailed girl Circus, not in bibs. Big Jim not even in jeans but beige, thin cotton pants. Some men in bibs including Old Man Paddler. Often sitting. I think no need for showing old men. At least 2 toddler in bibs (Revival, film 3). I don’t post pics of toddlers either. Most or all kids are siblings or relatives of the main characters. But I think noone else in bibs. No women in the movies but at least one in one of the novels. Maybe in the DVD extras? Still hoping for a remake. There’s one private project (probably no bibs).



Murphy’s Oil Soap 1983 and other commercials

12 Jun


Thanks db1 for finding a very interesting pinterest site with vintage commercials featuring overalls. Currently, I don’t have the time to check them all. Most have quite bad VHS image quality and (only) half of them are girls or women. And, as usual, are very short. I only checked some few of them including 2 commercials about Murphy’s Oil soap.

Has somebody the time to check them and are there very good clips that needed to add here sooner?

Pinterest has an annoying splash screen when not having an account. But someone can still scoll and read the title above the screen and search it on YouTube.

List of the commercials, I already have and link to all new clips at



The Fighting Smile

9 Jun


Silent Western starring Bill Cody
Year: 1925
Year in film: ~1870s
Country: USA
Who in bibs: Rose ~24
Available on DVD: no
I own: no
Clothing occurence: low ?
Rating:  3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: At least Jean Arthur (1900-1991, “Shane”) in faded bibs. Pic 1 showing her in the 1925 Buster Keaton movie “Seven Chances”.

I found this by coincidence but couldn’t find any better pics or clips. The movie is obviously very rare but not a lost movie.

Quite rare for a lady wearing bibs, especially these days. Usually she had blonde hair.

Probably an interesting movie.

Rating 3 for now.


Update: Where the Red Fern Grows (1974)

7 Jun


I first found a DVD release of the 1992 sequel “Where the Red Fern Grows: Part Two”, but I haven’t found bibs in there except of the old man. Then I rechecked the 1974 movie. Previously, I only have seen the first half and I didn’t like much the light blue bibs of the main character (pic 2 on the left, rating 6) compared to the 2003 remake starring Joseph Ashton, I bought on DVD (rating 8).

I now found another boy in faded, hickory striped bibs who is also of interest. Hands in pockets. But the remake is still better. So still rating ~6-(7). One more new pic (distance, hands in pockets, showing both) at the main entry



I also found “Where the Lilies Bloom”, but the girl in bibs (Helen Harmon) is very young there. Maybe around 6 yo but even younger looking. Quite interesting movie, but probably no need for an entry.

I have updated some more entries but will make an update post, soon.

The Waltons – Season 3 – update #7

4 Jun


By replacing the tiny pics in the main entries, I found some more good scenes.

Pic 1 showing the 2 boys in ep1 at 18 minutes. Slightly different pic (showing more). They are barefooted and also rear view when running away.

Pic 2 showing young Jim-Bob, shirtless and barefooted, I think in ep 2 (disc 1 at ~1h00). Bib at low position. Another pic of him in the main entry (full view, from a distance). Also a young man in faded bibs. Jim-Bob and Elizabeth with a swing and tire, reminds me of To Kill A Mockingbird.

Pic 3 showing young Elizabeth sitting in hickory striped bibs. Bib at high position. Disc 6 at 1h49.

Pic 4 showing, next to Jason, a young boy in dark bibs. Brief scene (rear view showing the jacket only). Disc 6 at 2h08. As announced many continuity mistakes often showing Jason in and not in bibs in same scenes. Also great scene of Jason sitting and standig up.

For this season, I only gave rating 8 (as Jim-Bob is still very young).

Also a larger pic in season 2 (Jason and Jim-Bob sitting). And season 1.




Update: Kidsongs 7 – Video Classics (boys, girls)

2 Jun


After completetly rechecking The Waltons, Looking for Miracles and The Sugar Creek Gang #2, I watched my Kidsongs DVD (Country Sing-A-Long) and again checked the web.

The official YouTube channel has a new clip (a 50 min.Collection Nursery Rhymes with Old Mac Donald had a Farm, …). The clips are not new. Maybe a new remastered collection if any. I found most scenes before.

Pic 1 showing Christian Tyler Buenaventura in orange shortalls in the song Three Little Fishies (available on different DVDs). I already have some pics of him but from a distance and first thought hat he might be a girl.



Maybe he’s the only boy in shortalls and even in orange.

Pic 2 showing an unknown boy sitting on the grass in blue bibs. I think in the song This Old Man. Some more good scenes of him, also girls sitting (pic 4).

Pic 3 showing a blonde, pigtailed girl in pink bibs in the song Mary Had a Little Lamb. Reminds me of Poetry’s lamb in the Sugar Creek Gang.

I found two girls in light blue shortalls, another update coming soon.

Also an update soon on my shiny shorts blog (currently rating 8) with boys and girls in shiny shorts and on my pigtails blog (rating 6). It’s also on my Western blog, rating 7.

Best video is still Country Sing-A-Long and then Boppin’ With the Biggles. I have briefly checked all or most videos, except for the TV shows. Main entry, rating 8



Update 2: Some Things That Stay

1 Jun


There are several good scenes of the 2 boys and the girl and I forgot to post some in the recent updates and announcement. So here some more

Pic 3 showing 17 yo Kevin Zegers, sitting on the ground. Other pics showing 11 yo Jack Knight, walking downstairs, sitting and crying.

For more and better pics, including sitting scenes of the boy and the teen girl Katie Boland, see the main entry, rating 8 (mainly for the girl).

2 further pics in separate entries were also missing in the main entry.

I continued checking my older entries (Feb 2012) and also checked my best rated entries, currently ratings 10 to 8 and started to replaced tiny pics. More infos later.
