Year: 1983
Year in film: 1980s
Country: USA
Who in bibs: Jack 32, Kenny 6, Megan ~3 ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurrence: low
Rating:  2/10
Rating: **
Comment: Michael Keaton in blue bibs, one side button open, ~6 yo Taliesin Jaffe in medium blue bibs at least in a shopping cart and the toddler sister played by Brittany and Courtney White at least in light blue bibs.

Also other scenes of interest like a bathtub scene. Nice bedroom (other blog, rating 7).

I don’t remember the complete movie. Nice, but typical 80s movie.

But the kids are very young and rather few good scenes.

So rating 2-3 only. Needs to be rechecked for other, supporting actors.

There’s obviously a bug in both top posts widgets. Although I can still choose up to 10 entries to display, they only show 2 less, no matter what I choose. Obviously only on this theme.

This theme is not supported anymore. And if I choose another (free) theme, you have less functions. like no pics in the search results like on my 2 latest blogs. often change functions and make tests for their paid .org blogs. They sometimes change the size of the icons. Maybe it also depends on the font or browser. But I can’t change much in the free version. My other blogs are not affected.

Update: After around 2 days, there are agin 10 posts. Either they repaired the bug, or I just hadn’t enough traffic.

Das Adventsfest der 100.000 Lichter (2018)

2 Dec


Christmas show. Host Florian Silbereisen
Year: 2018
Year in film: 2018
Country: Germany
Who in bibs: girl ~7 ?
Available on DVD: no
I own: yes, TV recording
Bib occurrence: low- ?
Rating:  2/10
Rating: **
Comment: One young girl in dark blue jeans bibs also making a snow angel in the fake snow and also sitting. In yesterday’s 2018 version. Musical clip “Oli P.: “Es schneit””. At least a 2 minute “best-of” version is on the daserste mediathek.

Not sure if this girl is part of the choir “Die kleinen Spatzen”.

Also of interest the musical Mary Poppins (one boy+girl but none in bibs).

I missed the end and I only noticed this brief clip. Obviously, the kids changed their clothes later. Making snow angels is a good idea. Usually, kids wear snow bibs or snow pants.

There are similar shows also with same or other kids. Like the other “” shows (some have boys in Lederhosen) or the other Schlager shows. I have some shows on my Lederhosen blog like Die große Show der Weihnachtslieder.

ABC Afterschool Specials: It’s No Crush, I’m in Love

1 Dec


ABC Afterschool Special. 25 seasons,  s12e1
Year: 1983
Year in film: 1980s
Country: USA
Who in bibs: Chrissie ~ 10
Available on DVD: no ?
I own: no
Bib occurrence: low- ?
Rating:  5/10 ?
Rating: *****
Comment: At least this young sister, Danga Lee as Chrissie in dark blue bibs.

There’s only a rather short clip on YouTube, the last 10 minutes, filmed off a TV screen.

Starring 16 yo Cynthia Nixon but probably not in bibs here.

Typical episode. For the bibs scene, rating ~4-5 for now. Nice rear view. But I assume rather few scenes. 1982 novel by June Foley, not mentioned by IMDb. It’s also not Amy but Annie. Another mistake.

Main overview



Dennis the Menace (1993)

30 Nov


Family film
Year: 1993
Year in film: 1990s
Country: USA
Who in bibs: Dennis ~6
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: often ?
Rating:  3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: I already mentioned Mason Gamble in the Dennis the Menace main overview and have one pic (shirtless in long blue bibs), but by coincidence I also found him in  these olive shortalls (probably much fewer scenes in those).

I still have to recheck the complete movie.

I prefer the classic series with Jay North, although b&w and no jeans fabric. Now also on my bedroom blog. Mason Gamble is funny but also annoying and too young, around 6 yo.

So still rating ~3-4.



I Think I’m Having a Baby (CBS Afternoon Playhouse)

29 Nov


TV drama, s3e2
Year: 1981
Year in film: 1980s
Country: USA
Who in bibs: Laurie ~18 ?
Available on DVD: no ?
I own: no
Bib occurence: very low ?
Rating:  3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: At least this teen girl, probably Jennifer Jason Leigh ~18 yo as 15 yo Laurie in dark brown, maybe corduroy bibs. I only noticed this very brief scene.

What else to say?

Usually I like the Afternoon movies.

But for this brief scene rating 3 only.



Update: Los olvidados

28 Nov


And another movie completely rechecked. Several boys in raw denim bibs but rather few scenes of them and mainly from a distance. One older teen boy shirtless in more faded bibs and some younger boys are more often shown.

Not bad, so still rating 5. Adding tag Sitting M and farm. Main entry



Hee Haw

27 Nov


Comedy variety series
Year: 1969-1997
Year in film: 1970s. etc
Country: USA
Who in bibs: men, women
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Clothing occurrence: medium+ ??
Rating:  8/10
Rating: ********
Comment: Several men and women in bibs. At least men also in green/olive bibs, women in dark brown (corduroy ?) and tan bibs, also sitting. Nice raw denim. At least one older man wearing them backwards (pic on the official site). Also thin and overweighted women.

Women in bibs include Cathy Baker and Jeannine Riley (both at least since 1969) and Marianne Gordon (1972-1990).

Pic 1 from a YouTube clip called “Hee Haw is back on DVD! Watch the Hee Haw ladies give boyfriends advice!” which are Kornfield jokes (written like this). Pic 2 from a clip called “Where, oh Where, Are You Tonight?” which I first found. (The lady, Cathy Baker? is made ugly when turning back).

I don’t know all episodes, but there are obviously many good scenes in all or most episodes. I have to check for more ones later.

Rating even 8 for now.

Update: Summer of My German Soldier

26 Nov


I already have announced this and added 3 new pics (much better), so even some more. I also have given rating 7-(8) instead of 4 (for the boy, I think it’s Roy Morris). Kristy McNichol wore at least 3 different bibs and is much more often shown.



National Dairy Board 80s ads

Food commercials (milk, cheese)
Year: 1983, 1985
Year in film: 1980s
Country: USA
Who in bibs: boys, girls ~8 ?
Available on DVD: no ?
I own: no
Clothing occurrence: medium
Rating:  6/10
Rating: ******
Comment: Pic 1 is from a 1983 “Milk is good” commercial showing both boys and girls in colorful bibs standing and sitting.

Earlier, I found pic 2 showing 2 young twin girls probably in pink skirtalls from a 1985 “Real Cheese” commercial (YouTube clip “Retro commercials Vol 26 – 1985”).

Maybe there are even more commercials from that company showing bibs?

Rating 6 for pic 1, and rating ~2-3 for the skirtalls Reminds me of the Olsen twins.


Also soon on my Western blog (clip 1, boy rating ~4-5).

Also on Full House (1987) rating 4, It Takes Two (1995), rating 6.
