Not a western series but set in the 1930s (and 1940s). Much more, very good bib overalls scenes of him and others (from young boys and girls to men and even women). For more infos and pics see my overalls blog, rating up to 10.

Also other historical clothes like bathing costumes similar to those in western movies but rather very few scenes. I don’t remember much more but currently rechecking the whole series.

For this scene rating 7-8 only.

Rating at least 5-6. Also to check a 1942 movie and many movies tagged as such on IMDb.

Sorry, I had one more pic with a girl and (another boy) but that was from the 1951 series (ep. Wild White Horse).

Also on my overalls blog (rating 3 as well). Other tags here.

-Rating: 7/10 ?
-Rating: *******
-Comment: Robin Winans in light clothes and cowboy hat and a dark jacket. Also riding. Scene from 1951 episode The Rock Spring Rustlers (s1e2). Also other boys like Robert aka Bobby Hyatt (I think in jeans) in several episodes (needs to be rechecked) He also appeared in other Western series and famous movies. There are also girls here.

Searching for Ma and Pa Kettle actors (see bedroom and overalls blog) also starring Robin Winans, I found this.

Very interesting but I assume rather few (good) scenes.

Rating 7 for now.

There are also other and earlier Wild Bill Hickok movies and series. At least one handsome boy (Sammy McKim) in the 1938 movie (not jeans) The Great Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok (rating 5).

Update s3e12 starring Bobby Hyatt (rating 6)

-Country: USA
-Who in clothing: boy ~9 ?
-Available on DVD: yes
-B&W or color: color
-I own: no, partly TV recording
-Clothing occurence: low ?
-Rating: 3/10 ?
-Rating: ***
-Comment: At least one young Mexican boy or more (maybe supporting actors) in typical Mexican clothes and vest.

Has been aired some time ago but I missed most of it. I don’t like it.

Sequel of The Magnificent Seven (1960) rating 3. That is maybe better and showing 3 boys in different clothes.

I like Yul Brynner but for the boy rating 2-3 but could be worse. I prefer jeans and boys wearing cowboy hats, chaps and the like.

Sorry I’m busy and can’t say much more.

-Comment: Buddy Foster (brother of Jodie) 9 yo but looking younger, maybe filmed earlier? in beige pants (knickers) with suspenders (seem out of leather), black shoes and stockings (good pic at Rottentomatoes). White shirt, also light blue shirt and without suspenders. Not sure about riding or other pants (blue jeans).

http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/hondo-and-the-apaches/pictures/multiuse-730714/

Not as famous as the 1953 movie starring John Wayne and Lee Aaker (rating 8).

Unfortunately very rare so I can’t say much more. 17 episodes. There is also a movie called “Hondo and the Apaches” including 2 episodes. That is not that rare but has only few good scenes.

Rating 7 for now but unsure.
