Pumuckls Abenteuer

17 Oct


Family series, remake, 13 ep
Year: 1999
Year in film: 1990s ?
Country: Germany
Who in bibs: boy ~15 ??
Available on DVD: no ?
I own: no, partly TV recordings
Bib occurence: low ?
Rating: 5/10
Rating: *****
Comment: One longhaired teen boy in light blue bibs on a beach in Israel in ep. 9. Either Uri Alter or more likely Jehuda Levi as boy#1 (obviously a local boy).

Another suggestion. Thanks very much!

The series is very poor compared to the original 1978-1991 series “Meister Eder und sein Pumuckl”  (also check out my shiny shorts blog for that, rating 8).

Rating 4-5 for this. I prefer the shorthaired boy.



Update: Stranger Things (2016)

17 Oct


A suggestion from Joker. Thanks very much! I already had an entry but just for a little girl in season 1.

I found 12 yo Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven in nice, dark blue bibs with curly hair and also in tight, light blue bibs with shorter, flat hair (pictured from the bloopers, season 2). She later has even shorter hair looking once more completely different. Also at least 4 teen boys in beige coveralls. Maybe more actors ? Cycling scenes but unknown if in bibs as well.

Also handsome younger boys and nice bedroom scenes (soon on my other blog).

Previously rated 2 for the litte girl, now around rating 5 ? I prefer the darker bibs and have to update this later, when more vids are available. Some pics are available online like on IMDb.

Main entry


Kinderen voor Kinderen 4

16 Oct


Some boys and (teen) girls in red and blue bibs with matching shirts and shoes. Probably that’s the reason why I missed this. Song “Dicke vrienden” of this 1984 episode.

Not that bad but I think few good sceens and few boys (if any).

Rating 5 for this.

I also have and make new posts on my shiny shorts blog of this and Cebollitas.

Main entry here, rating 8


Die Pfefferkörner – ep 126

Country: Germany
Who in bibs: Katrin ~35, man ~40 ?
Available on DVD: yes, partly

Rating: 3/10
Rating: ***
Comment: Jodie Ahlborn in light blue bibs, standing and sitting and also standing close behind the man (is this Antoine Monot, Jr. ?) in episode 162 Der Zwilling (s13e6) which had been rebroadcasted today.

I think only this brief scene.

So rating 3 only.

Main entry, currently one girl only, rating 5 at


The Worst Witch (2017)

10 Oct


Family series
Year: 2017-
Year in film: 2010s ?
Country: UK, Germany
Who in bibs: Mildred ~12
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: low ?
Rating:  4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: At least Bella Ramsey as Mildred in tight, dark blue and I think in black or dark grey bibs (according to a pic). Also sitting in those blue bibs (on a broomstick). Pics from ep s1e1. Also many girls in long, bibs-like black dresses.

Currently  running on Kika, but I’ve never seen it and found during research.

Also on my pigtails blog, rating 6.

Rating 3-4 for now only. I assume rather few bibs scenes. But the series is still running.

There are also some other, related series (at least girls in dresses and beige aprons).

De zesde klas

9 Oct


Reality drama TV series, 7 ep
Year: 1980-1981
Year in film: 1980
Country: The Netherlands
Who in bibs: girls, boy ~12
Available on DVD: no
I own: no
Bib occurence: low+ ??
Rating:  4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: At least this girl (6th grader, 12 yo) in dark red, maybe corduroy bibs. Pic from ep 1. Obviously also another girl and also a boy in blue bibs according to a tiny pic on waarkeekjijvroegernaar.

And another Dutch family series. Unfortunately also not on DVD. Awarded series was rebroadcasted online on Z@ppelin in 2002 but nothing more left than an intro.

For the girl rating ~3-4. But probably even better are the blue bibs of the girl and boy. Not all are handsome. Filmed in 1980 (?) but looking and described as late 70s. Maybe filmed earlier?

So rating 4-5.

Joséphine, ange gardien

8 Oct


Drama TV series, 85+ ep
Year: 1997-
Year in film: 2000
Country: France, B, SUI
Who in bibs: Julien ~10
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: very low *
Rating:  3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: At least this young boy, I think Adrien Francois sitting in dark blue bibs in s4e1 “Une famille pour Noël”. Maybe more actors/actresses in other episodes?

Another suggestion. Thanks!

Unfortunately again very few and brief scenes only. And I don’t like him.

So rating 3 for now only.

Kinderen voor Kinderen 38

6 Oct


Jasmine in tight, white bibs and long dark pigtails dancing outside in the recent 2017 episode, song Okido (Koningsspelen). The Dutch King and his wife watching them.

I think also sitting, at least on a pic. I haven’t seen all songs. But probably no one else in bibs.

I also have to check the recent episodes (30-37). But the earlier episodes and kids are definitely better (including the songs). I considered buying some more DVD and CDs but probably I already have the best ones.

Main entry, f/m rating up to 8

Comment: Danny Cooksey in faded blue bibs in the 1985 episode “Blue Collar Drummond” (s7e22). Only very few and brief scenes (1 or 2), so rating 3-4 only.

Another suggestion.Thanks!

Kouwe Kunstjes

2 Oct


Family series, 6 ep
Year: 1980
Year in film: ~1980 ?
Country: The Netherlands
Who in bibs: girl Micky 14
Available on DVD: no
I own: no
Bib occurence: medium- ??
Rating: 5/10
Rating: *****
Comment: At least Annelies Hulsker in tight, dark blue bibs (they appear very dark but according screenshots probably not raw denim bibs). Maybe more teens at school? Pic from ep 1.

Another Dutch series, I found during research.

No entry on IMDb. There’s also a 1982 sequel called “Schade en Schande” with the same girl, but unknown in in bibs as well (probably not). Both series not on DVD.

Rating 5 for now. She also wears a jacket and I don’t like her.
