-Comment: At least 2 younger boys (one blonde, one darkhaired), a teen boy and a girl in different clothes with belts. Should be set in the 1860s but some clothes rather look like the 1970s. Starring Jeff East and Kim Richards as kids.

I don’t know the complete movie, yet. There’s also an (unrelated ?) 1949 movie (also colorized available) called “The Big Cat” which is much more western like but set in 1933, but I haven’t found kids in there.

Rating 3-4 for now. Novel by Lew Dietz (A Seal called Andre).

During research for my other blogs, I stumbled upon this show, I never heard of. The 1st show featuring kids. There is even a DVD but only 3 complete episodes survived along some other fragments.

Great movie, also on my Bedroom blog, rating 10.

I only found some few kids including 12 yo Mitch Vogel (“Bonanza”) in s18e4 (color) and Donna Corcoran and others in s2e6 Dear Teacher (pics 2-4). By coincidence I later found a boy (Danny Flower ?) in bib overalls in s13e9 (pic 1, more pics and infos soon on my overalls blog).

Pic 5 showing a young lady in a Cowboy hat in s1e15, maybe Sheila Ryan?

Rating at least 5-6 for now. More episodes needs to be rechecked. Only partly on DVD.

Also wearing Cowboy hats: Peter O’Brien and Kevin Harrington (season 1) and some more men. Also several younger kids acting, but unknown if in Western clothes. Probably also riding scenes.

Also soon on my shiny shorts blog, ~rating 4-5.
