Ariel (1990s detergent ad)

21 Aug


I found this clip on one of my backups. Must be aired in the mid 1990s.

A boy in long white bibs, around 7 yo at school talking about how he got muddy while catching a frog (is shown) and his mom wasn’t angry (of the muddy bibs because she used this detergent).

At the end he is in a studio and happily dancing.

Quite interesting but as usual short and he’s very young. So rating 5-6. Sorry for the bad image quality. Probably available on YouTube but I haven’t searched for it. I think, there were also printed ads.

Comment: One lady, I think actress Mimi Fiedler (Miranda Leonhardt, previously Miranda Toma) *1975 in tight bibs. Now on vox. Summer special #4.

A bit later also without the jacket but soon with a long apron (mainly rear views then).

Info 635: Tiere bis unters Dach – new episodes

19 Aug


This series is currently being rebroadcasted, weekends on DasErste. New episodes, ep 70-76, continuing of season 6 (s6e5-s6e13) will be aired on Sept, 8.

However I can’t say if there are actors in bibs anymore. There were fewer and fewer in recent episodes. Greta and Lilie grew much older and Jonas (Fynn Henkel) died in 2015 at age 19.

Also entries on most my other blogs. Pic from season 3.

Main entry, f/m, rating 6, now also with some updated, larger pics at


Update: Kidsongs 9 – A Day At Old Mac Donald’s Farm

19 Aug


I always remember the song “She’ll Be Comin’ ‘Round the Mountain” (Cedarmont Kids f/m rating 8), so I’ve checked, if there are clips from others. And I found a song from Kidsongs, I missed, although I already have entries from this DVD. Even the recent update 7 and update 8.

Here’s a boy in faded bibs with a red hanky in the rear pocket also sitting. Also an old man in bibs.

This and/or other farm clips are available on different DVDs. (Yankee Doodle Dandy, Practise Makes Perfect, Country Sing-A-Long, and others).

I also found a girl in colorful bibs and other boys. Coming soon, but probably, I already have them.


Also another update on my shiny shorts blog, rating 8.


Bokura no yûki – Miman toshi

18 Aug


Action series, 10 ep
Year: 1997
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.


Baywatch (1989) – s6e3

17 Aug


TV series, 243 episodes in 11 seasons
Year: 1989-2001
Year in film: 1996
Country: USA
Who in bibs: Bonnie ~12
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no, partly TV recording
Bib occurence: low ?
Rating:  4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: At least 12 or 13 yo Mila Kunis as blind girl Bonnie in white or almost white shortalls in episode “Hot Stuff” (s6e3, 1996). Wide straps. On pic 2 on the right is Beverley Mitchell but not in bibs.

I found this by coincidence. Still needs to check all episodes.

Mila Kunis also starred in one earlier episode (unknown if in bibs) and also in Milo (1998), rating 3.

For now, I have very few actors in Baywatch, currently rating 4, but I bet that there are much more.


Also of course on my shiny shorts blog, rating 8.

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


Death Valley Days (1952)

10 Aug


Western series, 452 ep, host Ronald Reagan
Year: 1952-70
Year in film: 1869
Country: USA
Who in bibs: Andy ~15 ?
Available on DVD: yes, partly *
I own: yes, partly TV recording
Bib occurence: low *
Rating: 6/10 ?
Rating: ******
Comment: At least this young teen boy in s13e9 (Tribute to the Dog, 1964) maybe Danny Flower in faded blue jeans bibs.

By coincidence, I first found for my Western blog a lady wearing a Cowboy hat, then some few kids and later by coincidence this color episode. Obviously some good scenes in this episode. Plot is about the case of the famous dog Old Drum. Maybe more actors in bibs in other episodes, which are partly b&w.

Season 13 will be released on Oct. 2017. Most episodes are not yet released. I only have checked few episodes online.

For more infos, see my Western blog.

For bibs scenes rating at least 6 for now.

Update: The Edison Twins

5 Aug


Thanks for this suggestion, but I already had an entry, at least with 9 yo Matthew White and another teen boy.

Sunny Besen Thrasher also in bibs in season 5 (s5e1). Unfortunately in very bad image quality and I think few scenes and also wearig a jacket.

Main entry, still rating 5
