-Comment: Next to Mitch Vogel, there are several other (famous) teen boys acting in this 1972 episode “The Initiation”. Ron Howard (pic 3 on left), Nicolas Beauvy (pic 2), James Van Patten (pic 4 on right ?), Alfred Barker Jr. and Sean Kelly (both also in “The Cowboys 1972” like Nicolas Beauvy), Jeff Smart (“Bless the Beasts & Children”) and some more.

Several scenes of them. Many wearing vests and hats.

I recently find this by searching for Hog Wild (1974) starring Nicolas Beauvy in wet bib overalls (other blog rating 7, still missing pics).

Very interesting, but some are quite old.

Rating 6-7. Main entry, previously rating up to 5

Very nice, Our Gang like comedy series. Also some nice scenes in bib overalls (other blog rating 7-(8). Maybe someone can identify an actor there?

Has been aired today, but unfortunatley I missed it almost completely. So needs to be rechecked next time. Also a woman in bib overalls (other blog rating 3).

-Comment: At least 14 or 15 yo Bill Mumy as Andy (pic 1) in a light blue shirt, beige pants with a belt and a grey Cowboy hat. Pic from s2e3 The Kid. Also Clint Howard as Willie in light blue bib overalls in s2e14 (pic 4, soon also on my overalls blog). Very interesting episode is s1e25 with many kids (mostly uncredited on IMDb) in and outside a school (including girls) and ~14 yo Ron Howard (pic 3 standing in light blue jeans) and also a young blonde boy in pants with suspenders.

Lots of guest stars including Victor French, Jonathan Harris and many more. As younger kid also Johnny Whitaker (“Tom Sawyer 1973”). But I don’t know all episodes.

I found this by coincidence. Rating 7 for now. Needs to be rechecked. Partly on YouTube but in a bad quality. There is or was a DVD set, maybe inofficial DVDr?

-Rating: **
-Comment: Some young and very young Mexican boys and girls in typical Mexican clothes and some few US Cowboys kids and several other kids of some other nations including Chinese and a boy in Lederhosen. Girls mainly in dark pigtails.

Has recently been aired in the German Schlefaz movie series (worst movies of all times).

The movie is indeed unusual and poor. But interesting for these days. There are some movies which are even worse.

Kids are also very young. Rather few scenes of interest. Partly shown from a distance.

So rating 2 only. Soon on my Lederhosen blog (rating 3).

I have posted some more episodes of season 20 on both my bib overalls and pigtails blogs, so boys and girls. Some more posts also coming there later.

Please check out my other blogs for more infos and pics.

No need for posting everything twice. Pic from s20e13 (2 boys in overalls).

-Comment: At least 2 boys and 2 girls in episode “Howdy, Friends” (s5e9, 1998, pictured) in simple Western costumes including hats. Also some riding. At least one girl in a long blonde braid. And men (musical band) in Western clothes. Rating 4-5 for this episode.

I later found a pic, even better (rating 6) of the song “My Jeans Are Always Blue” with boy (and a girl) wearing chaps. And a girl wearing blue jeans and a red scarf. Not sure if it’s from this episode as this song was used in different episodes.

Another good Western scene in the song “Turkey in the Straw (Barney’s Version)” first appeared in Barney’s Adventure Bus (1997) also with boys (and girls) wearing chaps (rating around 5-6).

And another scene including boys and atr least 2 teen girls in s11e9 song “Trail Boss Barney.

I have to check more episodes. Also shown several kids in overalls (overalls blog rating 7).

Also on my overalls blog “Gunsmoke s20e13) with 2 young boys wearing overalls, rating 4.

Update: Father Murphy


Yesterday, I have rechecked some episodes, and this LHOTP spin-off is very good, maybe even better than the original series (except for pigtailed Laura of course). New and much more different boy and girl actors including a light blonde and other handsome boys. Good setting including bunk beds (rating 6). There are also boys riding (ep The Dream Day).

I still haven’t seen the complete series and have chosen these pics.

Pic 1 showing some of the kids in rather colorful clothes (for these days). As usual boys wearing pants with suspenders. Some also bib overalls (rating 6 on my other blog).

Also many girls in pigtails, soon on that blog, rating 6 as well. Main entry here, previousy rated 5 now at least 7.


Sorry, that I don’t post more entries. I’m currently very busy and there are few Westerns on TV.
