The Wonder Years (1988) – s6e4

22 Mar


Family series, 115 ep. in 6 seasons. Golden Globe
Year: (1988)-1993
Year in film: 1973 ?
Country: USA
Who in bibs: teen boys ~18 ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: very low ?
Rating: 3/10
Rating: ***
Comment: 2 older teen boys or young man in white painting bibs, one with one strap down in s6e4.

By coincidence I searched some few episodes of the final season and so found this.

This great series is finally on DVD (but I think in quite bad quality and expensive). Probably too few bibs scenes. Great PE scenes but shorts aren’t shiny and I don’t like much the 60s. Fred Savage is also too old in the later seasons.

12 yo Winnie in dark blue shortalls in the pilot, I already had. I added one pic in the main entry taken from my Pigtails blog (rating 4). One of my favourite entries on my bedroom blog, rating 10.

Main entry here, rating 4



Update: The Famous Jett Jackson

21 Mar


3 better and larger pics of this Disney series. There are also teen girls, but I haven’t found better pics and still have to recheck the complete series.

Now also on my shiny shorts blog (boy, teen boys, men, rating 3).

The teen boy is maybe not the most handsome boy, but I somehow like his bibs.

R.I.P. Lee Thompson Young.

Main entry here, currently rating 6



Update: Harts of the West

20 Mar


I found another scene of this series from the trailer. Not sure if it’s 14 yo Meghann Haldeman as well but very likely. Bibs appear darker here.

Also a ranch boy in regular jeans and nice ranch shirt and hat, soon on my Western blog. There’s also a teen girl in long pigtails.

I only have checked some few parts. The complete series still needs to be checked.

Main entry here, rating 6


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.

Gunsmoke (1955) s14e14

18 Mar


Another young boy in typical beige bibs in s14e14 (1968). Probably 7 or 8 yo Eric Shea with Pamelyn Ferdin.

He also starred in s13e11 and s14e23 but probably not in bibs (or I missed it).

Much better in Ace Eli and Rodgers of the Skies (1973) rating 7 (also on my sailor suit blog)


He’s very young here and I think few and brief scenes.

So rating 3-4 only. Main overview entry


Tales of the City (1993)

16 Mar


Drama mini series, 6 ep+ sequels
Year: 1993
Year in film: 1976 ?
Country: UK, USA
Who in bibs: Connie ~24 ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: very low ?
Rating: 3/10
Rating: ***
Comment: Obviously Parker Posey shirtless in light blue bibs or shortalls or similar. I only noticed one brief scene in ep 1 (headshot only). Buttoned till the top of the bib. Are there more scenes or publicity pics revealing if these are bibs or shortalls?

I found this by coincidence. There are also 2 sequel series, which I haven’t checked and an upcoming series. I think set in 1976. Novel series by Armistead Maupin.

Not bad, but for this brief scene, rating 3-4 only.

Findus Sofficini 1990 ad

14 Mar


TV commercial
Year: ~1990
Year in film: ~1990
Country: Italy
Who in bibs: boy ~8 ?
Available on DVD: no
I own: no
Bib occurence: low
Rating: 4/10
Rating: ****
Comment: One boy sitting in blue bibs (or shortalls), headshot only. Not sure about the country because of the different Findus logo. (Could be dubbed).

Searching for an Italian movie (Voglia di vivere, probably no bibs there), I found this clip on YouTube titled Sequenze C5 – 27 Febbraio 1990.

Boy is maybe younger than originally thought. As usual brief scenes.


Gunsmoke (1955) s14e10

9 Mar


I have recently checked (almost) all color episodes (seasons 12-20) at high speed (so it’s possible that I missed some scenes) and found some few more boys in bibs. Like mostly, the bibs are simple and not of jeans fabric.

A boy in tight, light blue cotton bibs in s14e10 (1968). Not sure if it’s the same pair in pic 2 but most likely. Is this 10 yo Christopher Knight (“The Brady Bunch”) or maybe someone else like Kevin Cooper?

Rather few (good) scenes.

More episodes soon, on this blog, my pigtails blog and especially on my Western blog (I already have one starring young Leif Garrett (rating 8). Also girls and teen boys soon there.

Rating ~4 for this one.

Main entry, rating up to 9


Square Pegs (1982) ep. 2, 10, 19

8 Mar


I have briefly checked all 20 episodes and found a teen girl, obviously Amy Linky as well in hickory striped bibs in at least 3 episodes. A nice sitting scene in ep 2 (pic 1), the other pics are from ep 19. Also in ep 10 but fewer scenes and mainly or only headshots from a distance. She mainly wore pink bibs with red straps. (See main entry, rating 6).

The other teen girl in the main entry is maybe Sarah Jessica Parker. She (or another girl) wore a plain medium blue longer bibs-like dress in ep 18 and 4 (also sitting).

Interesting early 80s series, but most characters are quite old. Jon Caliri was 22. Also soon on my pigtails blog, rating ~5.



Update: Hang Time (1995)

6 Mar


I now have checked (major parts) of most episodes of all 6 seasons and found some more bibs scenes. So there are more scenes than assumed. I haven’t found more males.

Pics 1+2 showing a young lady in light blue shortalls (also sitting) in s3e20. Pic 3 another pic of s3e15 (headshot in main entry), hands in pocket, also rear view.

Pic 4 below a lady in light blue bibs in s1e2. Pic 5 a lady in light blue shortalls or more likely a jeans dress in s1e6.

Unpictured a lady in a black bibs-like dress in s1e11.

Also more, interesting scenes of boys and ladies in shiny shorts. Soon to be updated on my other blog, currently rating 4, will maybe a bit higher.

Main entry, rating 4
