Comment: 10 yo blonde Leonhard Gruchenberg in blue bibs.

Suggested for the 2nd time, but I still couldn’t find any pics of clips showing him in bibs.

He also wore other clothes like a bit too short green pants and different shirts.

Quite handsome but I assume few scene.

Rating 4-5 for now. Put on my rare movies list.

Comment: Canadian Ari Magder ~7 yo (1983-2012, pics 1+4), Jason Woliner (pic 2), Erica Luttrell and a black and a white man in bibs. Also men in coveralls.

Another suggestion. Thanks very much. It took me lots of time to find the boys.

Blonde Ari Magder in simple, medium blue bibs in s2e27 looks more like a girl. I checked all episodes but couldn’t find him in season 3 in bibs. Pic 4, to better show his face and hair is from s3e2 but is an apron.

Pic of Jason Woliner is from s1e17. Few and brief scenes as well (sitting and also rear view).

Kara is shown very often in bibs and shortalls including black and dark blue. Pic from s3e23 sitting in long, medium blue bibs.

Quite interesting series and Ari is handsome, but the kids are very young and very few scenes of the boys.

So rating 5 only.

Crime series. Jan Fedder. 402+ ep
Year: 1986-
Year in film: 2003
Country: Germany
Who in bibs: Simon ~6 ?, boy, men, women
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: low
Rating:  5/10 ?
Rating: *****
Comment: First, I only found Louis Merki, maybe around 6 yo as 4 yo Simon in ep 182 (s17e6 “Armer Junge”, pic 3) in dark blue bibs at the end of the episode. Maybe more scenes but he often wore a jacket. I bet that there are more actors, probably also females, but I usually don’t watch this series. There are mainly grown-ups shown so I assume very few bibs anyway. I found it by coincidence and he’s very young.

I have later checked some pics and found some grown-ups in other episodes. A boy in blue jeans bibs in s24e6 “5 nach 12” (pics 1+4). Also nice western scenes. Pregnant 36 yo Katja Danowski in blue working bibs in s24e7 “Home Sweet Home” (pic 2).

Also men (Harry Schmidt) in blue jeans bibs and Karim Köster in blue working bibs in other episodes.

Previously rated 3 for the young boy, now around rating 5.


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



Update: Kidsongs 10

23 Aug


One girl in colorful, mainly red/white striped bibs in the song “Down By the Station” and at least one young boy in “Oh, Susanna”.

As announced, I probably already have both, but other pics.

Year in film: 1990s
Country: Japan
Who in bibs: Mori ~13, others ?
Available on DVD: yes ?
I own: no
Bib occurence: low ?
Rating:  5/10 ?
Rating: *****
Comment: At least 13 or 14 yo Jun Matsumoto (*1983)  in beige and blue bibs. Maybe the boy in pic 4 wearing black bibs? Also grown-ups in coveralls.

Another suggestion. Thanks very much!

I have briefly checked most episodes, but found only few and brief scenes. I think also sitting scenes.

Aka “Bokura no Yuuki“, Japanese title:  “ぼくらの勇気 未満都市” or shortened “ぼくらの勇気” English titles:  Our Courage / Keys to the City – The Kids are in Charge; Miman City. There is also a 2017 sequel (which also needs to be checked).

Rating 5-6 for now. Are there even better scenes?

Pics 1+4 from ep 2 at 34 minutes, pic 2 from ep 2 at 18, pic 3 from ep 2 at 9.


Update: When Calls the Heart (2014)

13 Aug


More episodes have been aired and I have also checked most episodes of seasons 1-4. Rather few scenes of the kids. I think other actors in later seasons but no bibs anymore. Some very good other scenes at school including many girl wearing pigtails (soon on my other blog). Also boy in knickers (soon on my Western and( or sailor suit blog).

In season 1 there’s the boy in the faded jeans bibs and one in beige or light grey cotton bibs (bib at low position). I already found them both. I thought, I have seen one in light brown bibs as well but could be wrong. The boy in pic 1 with the black vest probably wears similar pants with suspenders like main character Caleb.

There’s also a girl who wears a bibslike beige dress or maybe a potatoe sack, overdress, apron or similar. All pics from s1e6.

Interesting historical clothes but I don’t like the caps. And most all all clothes look like brand new clothes with bright colors what can’t be authentic these days.

Main entry, still rating 5 at


Love’s Abiding Joy

7 Aug


Christian TV drama/Western. Novel by Janette Oke
Year: 2006
Year in film: ~1880s ?
Country: USA
Who in bibs: boys ~6, 11
Available on DVD: yes
I own: yes, partly TV recording
Bib occurence: low-
Rating: 5/10
Rating: *****
Comment: I think 3 boys in cotton bibs, but very few and brief scenes.

As announced, this movie, which had been aired the next day. But I missed the beginning. One boy at school sitting in brown bibs at 9 minutes (pic 2) and at the end 2 very brief scenes of 2 blonde boys, one very young boy in dark brown bibs, one older boy next to him. 1st stealing food then dancing. The older boy is handsome and wears dark blue bibs (?) but is very briefly shown close up and from a distance.

2 more boys than first noticed, but very brief scenes. One 9 yo boy is Thomas Stanley, maybe in pic 2?

So instead of rating 6 only 4-5.

Part of the Love Comes Softly movie series directed by Michael Landon Jr..



Grand Champion (2002)

6 Aug


Family film
Year: 2002
Year in film: 2000s
Country: USA
Who in bibs: Sister ~10, Hallie ~34
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: low
Rating: 5/10 ?
Rating: *****
Comment: At least Emma Roberts and a young lady, I think Joey Lauren Adams in beige bibs. A short dancing scene at the beginning (both) and later some more scenes of the lady (sleeveless shirt). Also starring Julia Roberts (aunt of Emma).

Also on my Western blog, rating 6. And soon on my bedroom blog, rating ~4.

Obviously a typical ranch/rodeo movie. Rather few and short scenes. The boy in jeans is also of interest. Riding scenes but I think not in bibs.

Rating 4-5 only.
