Comment: As announced, I later found Tori Spelling in white/colorful long bibs in s6e16 also sitting. Rather few scenes, as usual.

Rating 2-3 for this only. I don’t like her at all and her hairstyle. Does anybody know other episodes showing bibs?

Main entry (boy, currently rating 3)



Sugar Creek Gang #2 – continuity errors

14 Jun


After film #5, I’m currently rewatching film #2 The Great Canoe Fish. My 2nd least watched DVD of the 5, although some great scenes including wet scenes and rear view on all fours.

Some more continuity errors, again mainly of Poetry. I haven’t noticed these before.

While still in the canoe, Poetry is shown sometimes with and without bibs and even in different shirts (light grey and blue). I think first without bibs at ~17 minutes, again at ~20. He entered the canoe in bibs but is mostly shown without them. I think Big Jim also had different shirts. Probably filmed on different days. I haven’t made pics. One is shown on the DVD cover.

Dragonfly (pictured) is already wet (bibs and hair) before the canoe flipped over and falling/being pulled into the water (at 26 minutes). Scene pictured is slightly earlier (old pic).




Books 75: Sugar Creek Gang – Chinese with board game 糖溪帮探险记

13 Jun


There are at least 3 different book sets of 6 books each. And all of them contain a different colored dice board game (same route as pictured, 104 locations) and some other extras. I don’t know Chinese nor the game rules.

There are rectangled character pieces of the 6 characters with headshots (different illustrator than in other countries). The character cards are yellow in set 1, light blue in set 2 and light green in set 3).

Book 1 and character card (Swamp Robber) showing redhaired Bill (比尔) in a green shirt (and blue shorts not shown here). The base of the board piece is dark blue. Book 9 he has a red hat, board piece light blue. Book 15 without hat. Same board piece color.

Book 2 showing blackhaired Little Jim (小吉) in a pink shirt, a blue hat with the right hand on (and blue shortalls). Board piece is dark green. Book 11 he has a yellow shirt and a green basecap worn backwards. Board piece light green. Book 14 brown curly hair, yellow shirt, light blue overalls and straw hat around his neck.

Book 3 showing (boy) Circus (杂耍) in spiked brown hair, horizontally white/blue striped shirt, blue longer shorts. Board piece light blue. Book 10 he has a brown jacket, brown basquet with both hands on and blue gloves. Board piece purple. Book 17 yellow striped shirt and a long stick on his shoulders (fishing pole ?).

Book 4 showing chubby Poetry (诗集) in a white shirt, short green shorts with suspenders and a green bow tie. Board piece pink. Book 12 in a brown jacket, green basecap holding a lantern. Board piece turqouise. Book 18 green vest, straw hat and fishing pole.

Book 5 showing greyhaired Big Jim (大吉) in a white shirt with 2 red stripes, red shorts and Baseball bat and glove. Board piece light green. Book 7 brown basecap backwards, yellow jacket, blue pullover. Board piece blue.

Book 6 showing Dragonfly (蜻蜓) with big blue eyes, brown hair, tongue sticks a bit out, yellow shirt, khaki shorts (knee length) and hands in pockets. Board piece medium blue. Book 8 beige hood and blue coat. Board piece turqouise. Book 16 white shirt, long, blue overalls and basque cap and binoculars. Large illustrations of the characters are on a blog.

All sets have a hand drawn b&w region map of the Sugar Creek locations. Set 1 has a brown postcard in a white sleeve depicting a treasure map on front. Group order on set 1 from left: Little Jim, Bill, Circus, Big Jim, Dragonfly, Poetry. Set 2: Bill, Big Jim, Dragonfly, Circus, Little Jim, Poetry. Set 3: Little Jim, Circus, Bill, Poetry, Big Jim, Dragonfly.

Unlike the recent English editions, this Chinese edition probably has b&w illustrations inside, like some of the other language editions including some of the German’s.

Interesting, there’s also a Serbian DVD of Swamp Robber from Acrobat film. (English audio, Serbian subtitles) RC2 and 4:3 full screen. The original is widescreen.


Syberia 2 (video game)

13 Jun


There’s one boy, I think young Hans in shortalls.

Around in the middle of the game which is a dream/flashback chapter, hence the brown colors. I think previously he was shown in shorts with suspenders, ressembling Luke in the Professor Layton series. Even the voice which was dubbed by a woman.

I haven’t played the complete game, yet. I rarely play adventures. Some riddles are extremely difficult (like in most games).

Nice trilogy with robots and stuff like that.

I don’t know if there more games showing bibs. Probably most farm games including females. But most strategy/casual games have small characters.

The Love Boat

13 Jun


Drama series
Year: 1977-1987
Year in film: 1970s
Country: USA
Who in bibs: Mario ~11 ?, Sarah ~10 ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Clothing occurence: low- ?
Rating:  3/10
Rating: ***
Comment: At least one boy in dark blue bibs in 1977 s1e11, segment “Lonely at the Top” (at 7 minutes). Not sure about his name (uncredited). The boy with the glasses is Philip Tanzini, the boy on the left Tiger Williams (The Waltons (boy in bibs being undressed in s2e20), LHOTP). The boys also appeared later at 32 minutes (this one is called Mario) but not wearing bibs anymore. Also a young lady in a short, blue jeans dress.

I also found a pic on IMDb of a girl (Tori Spelling) in white/colorful bibs in s6e16 (coming soon). Probably some more actors in other episodes?

Another suggestion. Thanks very much!

Rating 3-4 for now only. This boy is not that handsome. Bib at low position. The handsome boy on the right looks familiar but is also uncredited.

Also earlier on my shiny shorts blog, rating 9.


Pups Is Pups

Classic comedy short film (Little Rascals)
Year: 1930
Year in film: 1930s
Country: USA
Who in bibs: Mary Ann ~7, boy ~9 ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Clothing occurence: low+
Rating:  3/10
Rating: ***
Comment: At least one girl, probably Mary Ann Jackson in ripped bibs and an unknown boy in bibs. The boy looks Asian and is a referee of the tug of war game. He might be a Chinese laundry boy, but I only found 2 younger actors in later movies.

The first girl in this movies, I noticed in bibs.

2 reel, 19 minutes with sound (uncut). Some scenes got deleted. Colorized.

Rather few bibs scenes

Main overview entry


Sugar Creek Gang #5 – Poetry, part 2

11 Jun


The final update (for now) of this final movie.

Poetry’s bibs at the end (pic 1) appear very faded. A bit earlier, they appeared much darker, almost raw denim. I already confirmed at least 2 different pairs and continuity errors. Still not sure if this is a 3rd pair or the 2nd. It might just be the light and the limitations of the non-pro camera (which is shown in the DVD extras). In the sun or backlit, the colors are often different also compared to the others. I have to recheck the extras for that (different camera and different light/angles).

Some great and funny scenes, but somehow my least favourite.

Pic 4 is photoshopped. I swapped the heads of Dragonfly and Little Jim. I tried some more photoshopping, like changing only parts like the hair or the eyes, but that is too spooky. Especially Little Jim with short hair. Another possibility is morphing. Either combining 2 different persons or 2 pics of the same (young and old, if available or even boy and girl, like the sister). But I haven’t done this for years.

I still hope for a remake.





Update: Clara et les Chics Types

11 Jun


Briefly checked at high speed. Now a much better pic showing larger parts of her bibs including the belt. And hands in pockets.

Scene at 10 minutes. I haven’t found more scenes/actors.

Main entry, still rating 2

Comment: One older teen boy in I think tight, dark blue bibs. Bib at low position. Not sure about his name. Rather few scenes in later episodes. Pic 1 from ep 5, pic 2 from ep 8.

Also on my shiny shorts blog, rating 4. Correct title Racheta albă. Novel by Ludovic Roman.

I don’t like this actor nor his bibs. There are better series.

So rating ~3 only.

Comment: Not sure, but I think a young blonde girl with glasses in dark blue bibs or similar (could be a dress) but with an open shirt over them. There’s one pic at the Pidax publisher site.

I don’t know this series and recently found it as a quite new DVD release.

Based on “The Odd Couple” 1970. DVD title “Felix & Oskar”.

Rating 3 for now.
