You Can’t Do That on Television – update 5

27 Feb


I recently checked some episodes for my shiny shorts blog (rating 7/8) because of new suggestions, and found another girl/interesting scene in a bathroom. Partly undressing while a teen girl is in the tub. The black girl is probably Angie Coddett. Also sitting scenes. Bibs are maybe not of jeans fabric (pic 3 has a better image quality).

Pics 1+2 from ep 22 Personal Hygiene (1981). Pic 3 from ep 25 Drugs (1981).

As said, most episodes have been deleted, even the official ones. Maybe because of the relaunch and paid streams. Perhaps there will even be a DVD release?

Main entry, f/m rating up to 7




Books 68: several – Story 143: Walking in stiff new overalls

19 Oct


Because of my recent book purchase and previously finds, mainly about one-room schoolhouses (tagged book), I searched for more books and movies. So here my book results. Unfortunately, some of them are available only as snippet-view on Google.

I don’t remember any movie or series which is about the smell of new denim overalls, bullying or even the noise while walking. Most movies, set in the Great Depression show faded bibs. Even lengthy series like LHOTP and The Waltons have very few raw denim overalls. The pic is from a Mennonite documentary.  I also found some few more movies.


-Aronson: Mud and Dust (careful at school, 2 weeks before washing, removing rich style)

-Davis: Follow the Leader (strong odor, also girl)

-Nelson: Cassidy (not school but in empty store, smell, putting on, walking)

-Millard: Where Did All the Cowboys Go? (not school but at home, also girl)

-De Caux: Labor Radical (scraping tender skin)

-Chappel: Brighten the Corner Where You Are (stiff bibs cut into crotch)

Another one, I can’t find right now was about a boy who like the smell or stench of the bag where the new overalls of his granddad were.

Would also be a great plot for an audio book including noises of scrapping pant legs (and describing)



Book 66: Ben Logan: The Land Remembers

8 Oct

Today, I searched for one-room schoolhouses. I previously found (next to the well known movies and series like LHOTP) pics and books (even describing the smell of new overalls). By coincidence, I stumbled upon this 1975 autobiography by Wisconsin born Ben Logan who died in 2014.

On the snippet view on Google Books is a nice discription of the sound of the stiff pant legs, when a boy walked to the blackboard in new bibs. 3 boys (brothers) depictured in bibs on the cover (of some editions).

Although there’s obviously only this one direct mentioning, I ordered this book. (Will take some time to arrive and to read).

I have just finished a Western book featuring a blonde boy, but no bibs mentionings. Currently, I’m re-reading the Sheriff Ben “Danny” books.

Update: I mainly read the chapter about the school. Also about the smell of “new clothes” and “soap”.

Update 2: I have read half of it. A bit disappointing. Not that bad, but it’s mainly about farm stuff and philosophy.

Update 3: Completely read. Quite poor, reminds me of “Farmer Boy” by Laura Ingalls Wilder and other books describing the seasons and general work on a farm, often starting with winter.

p. 39 damp knees – crawling mud

138 taking out watch from bib pocket (high bibbed)

183 shop smell new clothes

195 school (one-room community chapter) best scene, see above (“somebody sawing wood ?”)

246 in best bib and tucker (farm smell)

Update: Home Run for Rusty

31 Jul


3 more pics of this boy playing Baseball in bibs including this headshot.

Also hand in pockets and another close-up front view.

Very good, rating 8, unfortunately few scenes only.

Playing Baseball in bibs and doing sports is quite rare.

Today, I have checked many full movies. Another huge update coming soon.

Main entry


Other Baseball in bibs movies

The Waltons (boys and also Mary Ellen)

Three Wishes (1995) (Update soon but very brief scenes)

A Winner Never Quits

LHOTP (teen girl rating 9)

Playing Tennis in bibs (girl)

Gymnastics (girls): Kidsongs, Zoom (1999).

Dancing in bibs is also a great idea (several f,m) like Kidsongs, Kinderen voor Kinderen, and many others.

Update 3: The Waltons – Season 6

11 Nov


I’m quite busy and currently watching less the Waltons. But here are some scenes of disc 4 + 5 of season 6. Rather few good scenes. At least nothing much new.

Pic 1 showing Elizabeth riding in raw denim bibs (disc 5 at 13 minutes, ep 18). She wore raw denim bibs before (even dancing). Also again in light blue, almost white bleached bibs like sitting. There’s a young girl Katherina in beige bibs (sorry, I forgot to make pics).

Pic 2 showing Jim-Bob walking (disc 4 at 1h36, ep 14). Bibs are not hickory striped which he often wore especially with that shirt.

Pic 3 showing Jim-Bob and Ben painting in coveralls (disc 5 at 1h59, ep 22). Maybe they wore pants or even bibs underneath. Also quite interesting.

Pic 4 showing Jim-Bob dancing (and standing up, brief scene). I think these bibs are hickory striped. Fabric is more sturdy and often in the butt crack. Disc 5 at 51 minutes.

Some few more scenes soon descibed at the season 6 entry.






Story 139: One strap down but not on purpose

10 Sep


In episode 319 of Cebollitas, teen girl Vero wearing long, dark blue bibs. While arguing with a boy, her left strap is sliding down. Obviously not on purpose and unpleasant to her. The bib is quite loose and on the side view it looks as if both straps were loose. She also wears this pair of bibs and the red shirt in ep 318 and her two long braids on her front, reaching the bib although the bib as at low position.

As said before, the later episodes either have been blocked on YouTube in some regions and some are obviously even missing or been deleted. Next to a 2nd uploader I also found a third, Greek one (pictured), series titled ATROMHTOI_. Unfortunately with the same poor image quality as the 2nd. But this episode is available in better quality from the 1st, official brodcasting uploader.

As announced, there are some new actors, but few in bibs. One very young blonde girl in light brown bibs or similar (like in ep 329, soming soon). Also new boy actors, but not in bibs. One teen boy with a dark bowl cut in a wheelchair, one blonde boy.

More infos and some better and earlier episodes also coming soon.



Story 138: Wrestling in overalls – Cebollitas

9 Sep


I mentioned this scene before but wanted to post other scenes first. In ep 92 Gamuza is wrestling with his obviously imaginary young friend Fantasmita. One moment later as another boy entered, Fantasmita is gone and Gamuza wrestling (and being held) alone in bibs on the floor.

Funny scene. Wrestling or fighting in overalls is a great idea, especially when both wearing bibs. Bibs shouldn’t be too tight but too baggy could also make problems. I remember only few other movies or series showing wrestling scenes. Probably some more fighting (I think in The Waltons and LHOTP).

Story 137: Overlapping straps – Cebollitas etc

22 Aug


Overlapping straps are generally very rarely shown. I only have around 7 entries on my complete blog. Some straps have button and holes like Mary Ellen Walton in season 1. I currently have only 2 US movies with overlapping straps (A Winner Never Quits, Man With the Gun (1955). And around 4 European ones, mainly French. Long straps in Papa Poule.

In Cebollitas, almost everybody has overlapping straps often hanging out. Obviously on purpose. I first noticed this on Andrea in her blue bibs (pic 1, here ep 109). Sometimes she has them twirled up and knotted.

Pic 2 showing Fede in ep 60. He was jumping here and the straps flying up in the air. I think he and some others sometimes put them back. In later episodes his bib is at very high position (see list by color). He often has a backpack and also often his bib down also when not changing clothes. He often wears bibs just before episode 75 where I first started to check completetly. Unfortunately no notable rear views, yet.

Pic 3 Gamuza has one strap hanging out and grabbed his straps but I think leaving it hanging out. Ep 64.

Pic 4 showing a girl (Vicky ?) in yellow bibs, full length. Ep 64.

Also with overlapping straps Sofia in a light blue dress (see updated list by color, blue pic #16 and red, last one). And Christina in grey in ep 217.

Some more good scenes, especially of Fede and Gamuza coming soon. But they often have the same pair (Gamuza red and blue). I think, I will soon check episodes 200 and up.



Update: Schloss Einstein – firefighters

19 Aug


By checking my backups, I stubled upon the firefighter Leon (15 or 16 yo Daniel Wachowiak) in episodes 381 (s8e45) and some later. The scenes are very good. Usually firefighters wearing the jacket closed and the bibs can’t be seen. I think, the recent German firefighters mostly don’t even wear bibs anymore. Previosly cotton, then synthetic.

The bib is at high position, the bibs quite tight (baggy don’t make sense at work) and black boy Dennis admires his uniform “echt scharf” (=really hot) and asked if his parents don’t mind him working as that.

The undressing scene in pic 2 where he’s muddy and about to shower (nothing more to see), I previously had in the main entry but at lower size. Also good bunk beds (one more pic of him sitting, on my bedroom blog, rating 8). Sorry for the image quality. Not on DVD but probably available online.

The character is shy and I remember good scenes of him in other episodes (partly pink hair, dancing Asereje) but I prefer other actors and earlier seasons.

I only remember one other scene of firefighters, probably ep 126 (season 3) and the casting of David as Max for season 11. There are also some grown-up firefighters and later farm scenes of teens in dark blue, non-jeans bibs.

I have seen almost every episode, but can’t remember them all. Maybe I missed some scenes also of regular bibs (especially of girls).



Cebollitas – ep. 84 blonde boy bib down

15 Aug


Sorry, I missed this nice brief scene, where the boy with the long blonde hair getting undressed (not completetly shown). Bib is down, also shirtless, but I haven’t seen him wearing them completetly with the straps on. Also shown again the young boy. Many scenes are from a distance showing the complete group and often they wear the same pair. Pics 1+2 from ep 84.

Pic 3 is from ep 82, I talked about earlier, the girl in colorful checkered shortalls.

I found very good sitting scenes in the next episodes. Coming soon.
