-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.

-Comment: Anthony Michael Hall (Rusty Griswald) in a black Cowboy hat and white or beige shirt.

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

I don’t remember all scenes. But I assume rather few Western scenes. He also wore shorts and dental braces.

So rating 5 for these clothes. Movie rating much higher.

-Comment: 8 or 9 yo blonde and freckled Renato Cestiè as Riccardo in white pants (US flag style), black or dark blue Cowboy hat and a shirt or jeans jacket, looks dark blue on pic 2. Also in dark shorts/knickers.

I also have him in 2 Westerns, recently in Noi non siamo angeli, rating 6.

I think few or very few scenes here.

So rating 5-6 only.

-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.
