-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).

-Comment: Several kids, I think mainly girls, maybe around 7-14 (of the mixed kids choir Kinderkoor Henk van der Velde and also other choirs) and also a woman in Cowboy/Western clothes. Obviously showing ep 18 (s2e11, 1970) which was about the Wild West.

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.

-Comment: Bill Switzer as ranch boy Matt in blue jeans and a Cowboy hat in s3e2 (1998), also Meredith Henderson (pic 2 on the left) often wear a fedora and at least one women in a flat Western hat in s2e11.

Good family series. Also starring John White and Brendan Fletcher (nice haircut) but I think not wearing hats nor Western clothes.

I think few Western or ranch scenes and mainly focussed on the girl Shirley.

Rating 5.

I found a headshot of him and wasn’t sure if it might be bib overalls and had to search for the movie. I have briefly checked it and it’s very interesting. I have to recheck it at slow speed. I only found a man in shortalls.

Also soon on my pigtails blog. English title: We Are No Angels.

He also starred in Si può fare… amigo (Halleluja…Amigo), rating 4 , in Cure (1973) and also some few other Westerns like “Il ritorno di Zanna Bianca” and Cosi Sia.

Rating at least 5-6 for now. Typical comedy Western.

-Comment: Some (teen) boys, girls and women in Western clothes.

I don’t know the complete series. There were many supporting actors. 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.

-Who in clothing: boys, girl
-Available on DVD: yes
B&W or color: color
-I own: no
-Clothing occurence: low+ ?
-Rating: 6/10 ?
-Rating: ******
-Comment: At least one girl and a lady in beige bib overalls, (on my other blog, rating 5) and some boys in jeans and Cowboy hats. A very young boy at the beginning in light brown chaps. Also ladies and of course men wearing Cowboy hats. Some few riding scenes (not in overalls).

Nice but I think a typical ranch/rodeo movie set in Texas. Both pics from the trailer.

I have to recheck it more carefully the next broadcasting. Probably not worth buying on DVD? Starring Jacob Fisher as Buddy (pic 2 on the right ?)

But for now even rating 6-7.

-Comment: Some boys and girls in typical western clothes (pants with suspenders). Pic 1 from s1e10 (maybe showing Jimmy Baird (“Fury”)?). In s1e12 there are kids at school. Pic soon on my pigtails blog (rating 4).

Robert aka Bobby Crawford in bib overalls in s5e3 (soon on my bib overalls blog, rating ~6-7). Don Grady in s4e10+11.

I don’t know all episodes but assume rather few scenes of younger actors.

Rating 4 for s1e10+12, probably higher rating for the others. I thought, I already had an entry.
