Update: Summer of the Monkeys

9 Dec


I have rechecked this movie, and next to handsome Corey Sevier there are some few more boys in front of the school in dark blue bibs (but mainly or only from a distance) and also men in bibs.

Corey’s bibs are patched and hickory striped. As usual, this can only be seen in streams with a better image quality and/or close-up scenes. Pic 2 is from the trailer.

Some nice scenes, climbing out of the window and fighting, landing on the ground. Also riding.

Western-like setting although set in 1910. Also in regular jeans and pants with suspenders, soon on my Western blog, rating 6.

I don’t like faded nor hickory stripes. Main entry (including the novel) still rating 6

Comment: One older, black girl, probably 12 yo Danielle Spencer (“What’s Happening!!”) in long, faded blue bibs, several scenes (although the main character is a boy), also sitting, and also standing in front of a mirror. And a girl, a bit younger in light orange shortalls. Episode s4e1 The Tap Dance Kid.

As announced, I found several LCA/Highgate movies on YouTube. So first some of this ones, before they got deleted.

I never heard of this NBC series and have to recheck more episodes.

Several scenes, good bibs, so rating ~(3)-4.

One Terrible Day

11 Sep


Classic comedy short film, silent (Little Rascals / Our Gang), PD
Year: 1922
Year in film: 1920s
Country: USA
Who in bibs: Mickey ~8, Peggy ~9
Available on DVD: yes
I own: yes
Clothing occurence: medium
Rating:  3/10
Rating: ***
Comment: First Mickey Daniels in faded and ripped bibs (pic 2) also dressing and undressing scenes after swimming with the other boys in underwear in a fountain, later 9 or 10 yo Peggy Cartwright riding in faded bibs (maybe hickory striped ?) and a straw hat (2 or 3 brief scenes). Also standing, great rear view, bending over. 16 minutes, silent.

Pics from my Our Gang Vol 1 DVD from Grapevine. The image quality is very poor, especially this movie, but I think it’s already remastered comparing to online clips. The movie is even worse than these pics suggest. But for 100 year old movies you can’t expect much more. Luckily, my favorite movie of these “The Big Show” is better.

I have seen all 7 movies of this DVD and will add more entries later. Few good other scenes, most notable in The Champeen.




Dikkertje Dap

6 Aug


Family film. Poem Annie M.G. Schmidt
Year: 2017
Year in film: 2000s ?
Country: The Netherlands, B, D
Who in bibs: Dikkertje ~7, man ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: yes
Clothing occurence: medium ?
Rating:  3/10
Rating: ***
Comment:  At least Liam de Vries in dark blue non-jeans bibs. Farm/zoo/hay content also riding (on the giraffe) and sliding down that back. I think also a man in bibs, maybe more actors like at the zoo including women? I think also girls in coveralls.

I don’t know the complete movie, yet. Maybe a quite good and funny family film, but I don’t like this boy and he’s too young anyway.

Directed by Barbara Bredero (“Mees Kees“). English title My Giraffe.

Rating ~3 for now only.

Schloss Einstein – ep 915

19 Mar


1st black boy Pawel (pic 3) in blue working bibs cleaning a window, also rear view but mainly from a distance. Also in an earlier episode (914 ?). Then Turkish teen boy Kasimir riding in blue working bibs, what is quiute rare (brief scene at ~5 minutes, pic 1). Near the end Kasimir standing, leaning against a fence (also rear view) and the 3 girls, I already mentioned before.

Best episode yet in this season and many scenes of the girls including farm work. All wearing (rubber) boots. I already have some pics of the girls, so no need for more.

Rebroadcasting tomorrow, also available online.

Pawel and some other boys also in shiny shorts in earlier and upcoming episodes (other blog rating 4). Also earlier, an older Turkish teen boy Orkan in blue working bibs, unpictured.

Main entry here



Update: Scandal at Scourie

1 Feb


Another movie, I have rechecked and replaced the images and added two new pics (riding and rear view). The previous pics were smaller and had a poor image quality.

Nice one-room schoolhouse scene. The bibs of the redhaired boy are dark blue and maybe not even raw denim, appearing regular blue outside. There’s also no bib pocket.

Rather few good scenes but quite good movie.

Main entry, rating 6 with one other pic

Country: USA
Who in bibs: boys, girls ~2-8 ?
Available on DVD: yes

Comment: Some boys and girls in bibs but mainly some very young boys/kids and toddlers and also at least one man. Also a kid (girl ?) in raw denim bibs (I haven’t found any other scene of this) and kids riding. Also a young boy wearing a Cowboy hat. Pics from song “Old MacDonald”.

Another song clips, I recently found on YouTube.

DVD label “Family Favorite Entertainment”. I don’t know all clips. No entry on IMDb. Awarded songs, but I think others. DVD release in Dec 2006. Songs probably produced earlier, maybe in 2001 as others were licensed to the DVD company.

Rating 3 for now only due to the age.

Comment: At least this blonde boy in ripped of, hickory striped bibs. Rural setting and also riding in them. I think it’s the main character Peter Malmsjö. The other (taller) boy is Stefan Grybe, same age.

I don’t remember the complete movie. Also skinny dipping scenes.

For bibs, rating 3-4 only. I don’t like much this movie either.

Novel by Bengt Andersberg.

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.
