Update: Cross Creek

22 Feb


I now have seen the complete DVD. db1 was right. Previously rated 8, now I can’t give any higher rating than 5. The 2 hour movie has 3 boys, 1 girl, men and a woman, but rather few (good) bibs scenes. The main problem is not the amount of scenes, but there are very few scenes of complete views. Not even of the girl or men.

The 2 boys including Cary Guffey and another blonde, unknown boy in hickory striped bibs have mainly headshots, pic 2 at 28 minutes. Full view only for some few seconds at around 1h40 (pic in the main entry). Mary Steenburgen also some few seconds at the end (pic in main entry), and one other headshot (1h53), both with a jacket over them.

20 yo Ike Eisenmann (pic 4) has one long scene at 48 minutes. Working, partly wet, good front and even better rear views, but he’s quite old. One other scene at a barn but dark lit (at 39 min). Faded and worn bibs.

Most of interest is the girl, Dana Hill, around 18 yo but appearing much younger due to a disease. Several scenes near the beginning, but also very few full views. 1 close up and one rear view. Pics at 23 and 18 minutes. Soon on my pigtails blog, rating 6. All actors except I think Eisenmann also wearing other clothes.

The movie itself is also not very good. Great setting, colors and music, though. Strong accents.

The DVD is a widescreen RC1 with good image quality. 1 extra. A 17 minutes later interview of Steenburgen, but mainly showing scenes from the movie. Very few other pics and footage, none of interest. Some more pics at



Info 548: Updates, pics

20 Feb


I’m running out of movies and I’m also quite busy, so I’ve started to make some other stuff like adding pics of entries without any, especially of reality TV. Also updating lists, rechecking older entries and rare movies.

Most vids are still online somewhere, some, especially TV shows aren’t. Older pics are on my old PC and will be added soon.

For reasons of personal rights, I have blocked out the faces of non-celebrities.

Pic showing longhaired teen boy Jeremy-Pascal and his dad of Die Wollnys in ep 24 /s3e6 (2010) in blue working bibs. Also in green fishing bibs in ep 20. Series is still running, but not with him. Peter on the left still starring, here in green bibs (or pants) but with a pullover over them. I think he and Flo also some years later in fishing bibs.

Other new pics: (mainly low ratings) (firefighter boys, girls)

Die Ludolfs (farm boy, green)

Am Schauplatz: Es stinkt zum Himmel (farm boys, green)

Tigerenten Club

16 Feb


Kids game show
Year: 1996-
Year in film: ~2003, earlier
Country: Germany
Who in bibs: boys, girls ~10-12
Available on DVD: no ?
I own: no
Bib occurence: medium
Rating: 5/10
Rating: *****
Comment: Several boys and I think girls in light green (team frogs) and yellow and black striped bibs (team tiger ducks). The show is still running but I think not showing these bibs anymore.

The pic must be made in 2003 (or a bit later) as it already shows the host Malte. I thought that it’s in the 90s. I think bibs also earlier. The show is a sequel to the Disney Club and is based on the cartoons by Janosch.

I rarely watch(ed) it. 90 minutes was a long show. It also included some other interesting TV series but very few involving bibs.

Not bad, but depends on the actual kids. Maybe some good scenes. So rating 5-6. I prefer blue bibs and farm settings.

Die Schatzsuche (1985)

13 Feb


Swiss school project
Year: 1985
Year in film: 1985
Country: Suisse
Who in bibs: boy ~13 ?
Available on DVD: no
I own: no
Bib occurence: low
Rating: 5/10
Rating: *****
Comment: At least this boy, around 13 or 14 yo in faded bibs, bib at low position and hands also in the pockets.

After finding “Der Ausgestossene (1984)” for my shiny shorts blog (rating 7), I checked briefly some more clips from this YouTube uploader (basis104) and so found this one.

This has even been aired 1986 on Suisse TV (Sälber gmacht).

Rating 5. I think few scenes.


Nicht von schlechten Eltern (1993)

Rating: 5/10
Rating: *****
Comment: Dutch Colin Klippenberg (pics 1-3) in light blue bibs also worn backwards (like other jeans with suspenders), one strap loose and also in fishing bibs in s3e1, 5 years later. Felix Schmarje around 5 or 6 yo in osh kosh hickory striped bibs in s3e1 (pic 4, 2 very brief scenes, the other one partly shown inside).

Unpictured in s1e5 in light blue jeans or bibs but with a jacket (brief scenes). In s1e6 he wore a short, dark union suit or similar.

And yet another suggestion. Thanks very much!

Pic 1 from s1e3, pic 2 from s1e8. But rather few and brief scenes. In season 3, I only found him in these fishing bibs (but too old anyway).

Typical family series. Not bad but rating 5-6 only. Also starring Patrick Bach.

Rating: 5/10 ?
Rating: *****
Comment: Some young women and maybe older teen girls in bibs and coveralls (including light blue). Also some boys acting, but unknown if in bibs. Next to the lady pictured (unknown episode, I think Sanna Englund in beige/tan working bibs), I also found some pics on (maybe more actresses):

ep. Die Verführung (woman Annette Frier light blue bibs)

ep. Verloren (blonde teen girl Anna Herrmann, light blue bibs)

I don’t like Crime series, especially not with women.

Rating 4-5 for now. Needs to be rechecked.

Comment: At least Sara Vilén in short shortalls, bib at very low position. Even making a headstand (like Mary-Ellen Walton).

Also boys and girls in swimwear including a boy in pink board shorts. On my shiny shorts blog, I currently only have the 2nd movie “Tsastiki – Vänner för alltid” (boys rating 5).

I don’t know the complete movie yet. Typical movie of it’s kind. Not that bad.

Rating 4-5 for now only. I don’t like this girl and neither shortalls.

English title: Tsatsiki, Dad and the Olive War.

Rating:  5/10

Comment: Dana Hill as tomboy Ellie, looking much younger (pic 2, also in other posts like “The Kids Who Knew Too Much”, rating 7), 10 or 11 yo Cary Guffey as Paul (Bud Spencer movies, rating up to 6), Ike Eisenmann as Floyd (farm work, partly wet, also in LHOTP and “The Amazing Cosmic Awareness of Duffy Moon”, both rating 7), Mary Steenburgen as Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, author of “The Yearling” (1994 movie rating 7), some men and maybe others in bibs.

This movie obviously has it all. Boys, girls, woman and men in bibs. I found it by searching all 80s US movies on IMDb for my shiny shorts blog.

2 hours. Dana Hill (“European Vacation”) died in 1996 aged 32.

Update: Even one more boy in hickory striped bibs, but very few good scenes. Previously rated 8, now 5. More details and pics at



Dr. Mag

31 Jan


ZDF teen magazine. Berlin
Year: 1993-1996
Year in film: 1992
Country: Germany
Who in bibs: boy ~12 ?
Available on DVD: no
I own: no, partly TV recording
Bib occurence: low ?
Rating:  5/10 ?
Rating: *****
Comment: At least this darkhaired boy in faded blue bibs (look baggy) doing pranks.

Yesterday, I have rechecked some few of my VHS tapes and found this by coincidence (also 2 females and something for my other blogs in other shows, coming soon).

This was a lifestyle magazine for young teens with reports set (mainly) in Berlin, but also has some other elements like music, short animations and jokes like this one.

I haven’t checked it completely, but this scene is very brief, pic 2 few frames only and not showing more, mainly headshots and he also wore a jacket. Maybe he occured later (sitting as well ?) or in other episodes or even other series as well. Most or all of this tape was recorded in Apr. 1992, but this show was first aired in Jan 1993 (so could be produced in 1992, or 1996. Pic confirmed to be produced in 1992). In 1996 there was a more famous spin-off “Dr. Mag Love”.

Does anybody know his name or other scenes or shows with him? Luckily, I was able to find out this title. I often have short clips. I think, I have to search for this tape and recheck it once more. Maybe there are even credits and more scenes.

Update: Nothing more found on this tape. Maybe on other tapes? Maybe I will check more tapes, when I have more time, but this could take a while.

Comment: Morgan Vasner in rather few scenes in blue bibs in episode 11 only, also sitting.

Another suggestion. Thanks very much!

Not that bad, but I prefer him in “Les vacances de l’amour” (rating 7, same year, outdoor scenes).

So rating 5-6 only.

Also soon on my bedroom blog (girls).
