German kids TV series, 59 episodes
Year: 1983-1990
Year in film: 1980s
Country: Germany
Who in bibs: boy ~8, girls ~6, 9 ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no, partly TV recordings
Bib occurence: low ??
Rating:  7/10 ??
Rating: *******
Comment: At least this young boy, around 7 or 8 yo in hickory striped bibs in s1e5. Probably more kids in other episodes. Also boys in Lederhosen, for many years on my Lederhosen blog, rating 8 (before it was available on DVD).

I have just found it by coincidence and have to check the other episodes.

Great series, similar like Anderland (rating 7) but I think mainly focussing on WWII stories.

Rating 6-7 for now.

Update: Obviously fewer bibs scenes than first thought, but I’m still checking. Update coming soon.

One little girl in pink bibs in s1e11. 1 leg cuffed up. Another girl ~9 yo in season 3 (not on DVD)


Update 7: The Waltons – Season 7

7 May


As anounced the final update of the final episode 7 to be rechecked. Maybe I have to recheck seasons 1+2, especially for Ben and Erin and pigtails scene, but later.

Pic 1 showing Jim-Bob, I think in hickory striped bibs, disc 6 at 36 minutes. Ben’s new wife Cindy occupying the bath.

Pic 2 sitting at the tree house at 1h47.

Pic 3 showing him sitting in light blue bibs (rear view at 2h39).

Pic 4 showing a very young boy at 1h41.

Some more good pics of Jim-Bob, mainly standing and walking at 1h36 and at 1h46 standing up from the table (both hickory) and in light blue bibs at 2h39.

Another funny scene when he’s sitting in bibs in a bathtub (no water, on the porch as a present) and Ben and Cindy pushing him in. Main entries





Update 6: The Waltons – Season 7

30 Apr


Season 7 finally seen (disc 6 coming soon). This is about disc 5. Season 8+9 no need for rechecking.

Pic 1 showing a young man/older teen boy in faded bibs at 32 minutes (ep 17), also previously sitting.

Pic 2 showing Jim-Bob in hickory striped bibs at 2h07 (ep 19 ?).

Pic 3 showing Jim-Bob in hickory striped bibs (also rear view) and clever, fat boy Clarence in faded bibs at 2h03. Very good close-up scene of Clarence (rear view) while demounting the mule. At least one button on the side is open. For more scenes of Clarence, see this post of season 6. And season 7 main entry (riding).

Pic 4 showing Elizabeth in medium blue bibs at 38 minutes (ep 17).





List 54: The Waltons – Ben Walton

28 Apr


The final character list of The Waltons. No need for John-Boy, who wore light blue bibs mainly or only in season 1. I don’t like Ben and rarely pay attention to him. So the earlier seasons needs to be rechecked as well as a detailed list of all his scenes. I think, he mainly wore bibs for work. The bib is often at low position, the fabric often in the butt crack. Very good scenes shirtless in season 4 as well as in raw denim bibs. Please also check the season and story entries, linked in the main entry.

Pic 1 from season 4 disc 6 at 2 minutes. Pic 2 Probably s4e18, Pic 3 in hickory striped bibs in season 3 disc 2.

Season 1:


Pic: episode 9, cd 3 at 2minues. Barefoot. Bib at very low position. I think 13 yo.

S1+2 needs to be fully rechecked.

Season 2:

currently no scenes known

Season 3:


disc 1 at 39 minutes, ep 1 sitting in hickory striped bibs (pic)

Disc 2: 22 minutes riding with Elizabeth, 57 minutes with Jim-Bob, 2h27

Disc 4: 2h22, 2h23 sit hickory, 2h59 walking

Disc 4 at 51 minutes, ep 14 raw denim bibs, rear view

ep 18 dark bibs, walking. 16 yo

pic with others, standing, ep 23

Disc 5: 1h42 in bed

Disc 5 at 29, ep 17 shirtless; at 2h40 ep 19 dark blue bibs, patch on knee

Season 5:


Pic: Disc 6 at 1h45 (ep 19).

Disc 1: 3+44 minutes bibs+apron

Update 5: The Waltons – Season 7

15 Apr


Disc 4 of season 7:  Pic 1 showing Jim-Bob at 2 minutes in hickory striped bibs and a red Baseball cap and Elizabeth in medium blue bibs and a glove. Also front view of him.

Pic 2 showing Elizabeth at 2h44 in these bibs and a similar blue shirt in the kitchen.

Pic 3, a funny scene when Jim-Bob gets his hair cut by Yancy at 14 minutes. Sitting and standing up in hickory striped bibs. Another great sitting scene at 1h48 in light blue (not striped) bibs (those from pic 4).

Pic 4 is at 2h14. A longer good standing scene. I think no other actors in bibs.

Also Elizabeth and Ben painting in bibs at 33 minutes.

I wish a Happy Easter to all my readers!

Country: USA
Who in bibs: Bone 11, boys, woman
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: low +
Rating:  6/10 ?
Rating: ******
Comment: A girl, probably Jena Malone as 10 yo Ruth Anne aka “Bone” in dark, hickory striped, quite baggy bibs, 2 boys (maybe Jamison and Timothy Stewart ?) and a woman (Leigh ?). Also starring 15 yo Christina Ricci (probably not in bibs ?).

After updating series Family (1976) with Kristy McNichol (rating 8), I found this by coincidence on YouTube.

Very interesting, but few bibs scenes. At least 2 brief scenes of the boys. At 14 minutes (sitting on the grass, unpictured) and a longer scene with all at around 1h04-1h14 (pictured).

Emmy Awarded, novel by Dorothy Allison.

Rating 5-6.

Country: USA
Who in bibs: Conrad ~5, others ?

Bib occurence: low+ ?
Rating:  2/10 ?
Rating: **
Comment: At least a young boy, Christian Zika in hickory striped and light blue bibs and Kristi Jill Wood as Laurie in a dark blue jeans dress in s1e14. Also starring Adam Rich as older brother. Probably more actors/actresses in other episodes? There are several famous guest stars.

For now, I have only checked some few episodes for my shiny shorts blog (2 entries, rating 5).

Quite interesting 80s and late 70s series. But I rarely watched it then.

For this very young rating 2-3 for now only.

Other movies with Adam Rich in bibs include Eight is Enough (1977), rating 7 and The Devil and Max Devlin (rating 5).

Comment: At least Peyton Elizabeth Lee as main character in short shortalls) pic 2 from s1e13) and obviously also longer, dark striped bibs, pic 1 from the intro. Also sitting in shortalls on her bed.

Thanks again Michi for this suggestion!

New Disney Channel series, still running. But I don’t like her. She looks more like a boy. Maybe there are also other girls or boys? Needs to be rechecked later.

Rating 3-4 for now only.

Update 4: The Waltons – Season 7

10 Mar


After disc 3, now the forgotten disc 2. Mainly of interest, next to the usual Jim-Bob and Elizabeth, 2 other, very young girls.

Pic 1 showing Jim-Bob and Elizabeth at around 1h47 close to each other. Before that also outside. Jim-Bob in hickory striped bibs. Both are almost equal tall.

Pic 2 a very young girl sitting on a swing (also standing) at 21 minutes.

Pic 3 showing Elizabeth climbing up the ladder to their tree house at 1h14h. Nice rear view. Also sitting up there. Another scene of her (standing) at 25 minutes.

Pic 4 showing a very young, blonde ballet girl in light blue bibs at 2h45.

Other scenes (of Jim-Bob) described in the entry of season 7 and his list.





Regards d’enfance: Maximum vital

Drama movie series
Year: 1993
Year in film: 1990s
Country: France
Who in bibs: Jérémie ~9
Available on DVD: no ?
I own: no
Bib occurence: low
Rating:  5/10
Rating: *****
Comment: Pierre Kreitmann in dark hickory striped blue bibs in some few scenes in the middle and end of this movie. Pic 1 at 27, pic 2 at 1h29.

Another suggestion. Thanks very much!

Not bad, but few scenes and often with a jacket over them.

So rating 4-5 only. Episode “L’homme de la maison” is much better (rating 7).

I have 3 other episodes here. There are still problems with the apostrophes at the blog search, as the simple, straight typewriter apostrophes won’t work in the post text but title. One post has a different apostrophe, but so someone can at least find something no matter if he types it or copy it. Same problem for other titles, especially “L’instit”. Search for “instit” and/or check the A-Z list, search for actor or director names etc.

All episodes I have, are also collected in
