25 Jun


Musical clips
Year: 1997, earlier
Year in film: 1990s
Country: USA
Who in bibs: boys ~5-13, girls ~4-12 ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: medium+
Rating:  8/10 ?
Rating: ********
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.



Kids for Character

Year: 1996-1997
Year in film: 1990s
Country: USA
Who in bibs: boy ~5, girl ~7 ?
Available on DVD: VHS only
I own: no
Bib occurence: low
Rating:  3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: Another suggestion. Thanks! db1, are you sure that these are the right links? I haven’t found many kids, just one girl and one boy in shortalls. On part 2 even less (one very brief scene of a girl). In total ~2-3 minutes.

I only found few and brief scenes. Another scene is, when they are sitting on stairs. (Boy headshot or distance only.

For the commercials, the boys are very young and brief clips anyway. I usually don’t posts toddlers or kids aged ~5 or under (with exceptions, e.g. for very famous actors).

There’s at least on later Barney video called “Choices Count!” (1997), but I haven’t checked that one.

There are lots of good Barney clips, also with older kids (mainly girls). I have some entries, rating up to 7 and the movie Barney’s Great Adventure, girl rating 4



Update: Spuk von draußen

24 Jun


First, I had problems finding other episodes than the 1st one. And I thought that the 2nd girl, from where I only had seen a headshot would wear a jeans dress like in “Spuk unterm Riesenrad”, but luckily I found ep. 2 on facebook via the episode title (pic 1).

Pic 2 showing another scene of the girl in pink bibs from ep. 1.

Interesting movie, also several actors in (shiny) shorts. Also an older man in bibs.

Still missing later episodes. There are 9 instead of 7. But I don’t assume more actors in bibs.

Now also on my bedroom blog (girls in a bunk bed and later with a boy in his bed).

Main entry, rating 4



Sugar Creek Gang #4 Secret Hideout

23 Jun


Christian adventure
Year: 2005
Year in film: 1950s
Country: USA
Who in bibs: boys 8-17, men
Available on DVD: yes
I own: yes
Bib occurence: very often
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′.



Update: Curly Top (1935)

23 Jun


I recently found a colorized pic of Shirley Temple with a different title and thought of a new movie, but it was from “Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm (1938)“, which I already had.

But I found a clip from Curly Top (1935) which I also had, but showing next to 7 yo Shirley Temple some more girls in bibs.

Simple bibs. Backside simple suspenders only.

Main entry, still rating 4 at


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).

Update: Mamma Mia! (2008)

19 Jun


Has been aired yesterday, but I almost missed it completely. Rebroadcasting on Wednesday noon on arte.

Obviously much more bibs scenes of Meryl Streep than assumed. Bibs are tight, (almost) raw denim and don’t have rear pockets. As said before, the simple bibs are a bit too short and sometimes she wore a tool belt. No braces but straps are knotted.

Some good movements and the ABBA music is of course very good, but honestly, she’s way too old (58). Sliding down the stair rail reminds me of “Sonnenallee” (blonde, longhaired boy in Lederhosen).

Main entry, rating 4


I’m currently continue, replacing tiny pics (March 2012). Updates f,m coming soon.

Update: Also new tag wet. Thanks dale.

DEFA Family film
Year: 1985
Year in film: 1980s
Country: East Germany
Who in bibs: girl ~ 10
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: very low ?
Rating:  3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: At least this unknown, young, blonde girl in beige bibs. I only noticed a brief scene at 48 minutes. Also kids in swimwear and boys in jeans.

Typical good family film of it’s kind about kid detectives.

For bibs rating 3-4 for now only. Movie itself probably much higher.

Sorry for the bad colors. Available on a single DVD and on an Icestorm DVD together with movie Olle Hexe.

Update: Mickey McGuire (film series)

14 Jun


As announced, some more movies and interesting scenes.

Pics 1+2 are again from Mickey’s Thrill Hunters. In pic 1 there’s obviously the same actor, I already had with the modern haircut. Sleeveless shirt and 1 strap down.

In pic 2 there’s one boy in bibs hanging at the roof of a high building and other kids helping him by grabbing him at his bibs. Sorry to all victims of the fire in London. I captured this before.

Pic 3 from “Mickey’s Circus” showing some boys sliding in bibs. Also other actions on the playground.

Pic 4 from “Mickey’s Helping Hand” showing a boy in faded bibs. Maybe the same as in pic 1.

Probably most or all of the other movies showing boys and men in bibs as well, like “Mickey’s Luck”. Now also on my Western blog. Maybe one more entry later.

Main entry here, rating 7


R.I.P. Ulf Stark (“Dårfinkar & dönickar”). I only have here Tsatsiki part 3. More movies on my shiny shorts blog (rating up to 10).
