I recently found a colorized version of this one. Even German dubbed and not available when posting this in 2011. Also updated on my bib overalls blog. Next to other movies including underwear scenes.
Next to Alfalfa (pic 2) also some other boys in dark sailor suits and white caps.
Main entries, rating 6
The recent unknown movie is called “Großer Ring mit Außenschleife”. Thanks very much Michael!
Unfortunately rather few scenes at the beginning but great scenes, especially rear views including close-ups. Also sitting, but from a distance behind the table.
The 2 brothers are Christian Böttcher and Rolf Bogus, I think the boy in Lederhosen is Rolf Bogus (“Till, der Junge von nebenan”).
After 6 1/2 years, I have briefly rechecked this series. There are some boys in sailor suits (at least 4 in different ones, I didn’t even noticed before, adding tag sailor suits) and other historical clothes and costumes (H-style suspenders but not Lederhosen) and also ladies in sailor-style dresses. But the only notable scene is this big fighting scene in episode 2. Also shirtless in swim wear (same episode). 2 boys also being tied together (standing).
Most collars are wide but short. Some good scenes, but mostly from a distance. There are better movies.
Main entry, still rating 6
The Oktoberfest starting this Saturday, 21st.
I found very few good movies the following 2 weeks.
As usual the Trachten- und Schützenzug on Sunday.
Die Prinzessin von St. Wolfgang, Michael Ande, rating 6, Okt 1st, MDR
The Whipping Boy (1994), rating 7, Okt 3rd, MDR
Some documentaries and concert on Sept 30 (BR)
I might have missed some.
By coincidence, I found this 1976 7″ vinyl cover of “Ich bin der kleinste Jodler der Welt”. There’s also a 1978 single “Ich schenk dir meinen Jodler”.
Probably, he also appeared in TV shows or commercials?
But I haven’t seen any clips, yet (except audio).
I also don’t know his full name.
I’ve just found this movie on YouTube. I already had an entry, but previously no pics at all.
I only noticed 2 brief scenes. With and without hat, mainly at the beginning. Longer buckskin Lederhosen. Also help farm worg kneeing on the grass.
Also a woman in overalls and a girl in shortalls (soon to be updated on my other blog).
Previously rating 6, now ~3. 9 yo boy even looks younger. Main entry at
I have seen episode 3 and the first half of episode 4. I also have rechecked my recordings in slo-mo, mainly from episode 1.
Pic 1 showing other boys in brown buckskin Lederhosen. Same 2 vertical zippers.
The walking scene of pic 2 (episode 1 ?) showing clearly that the fabric is very thin. I’m still unsure if it’s leather. To me, leather and nappa are not that thin. But there are drawstrings beneath. The fabric is also shiny, so could be PVC. But probably we will never know for sure. I don’t like too thin fabric but it also has some advantages.
In episode 3 they have much longer hair (although in 1974 as well). Rather few good scenes.
Episode 4 is much worse. 5 years older and probably no Lederhosen. And the kid in overalls at the beginning is a girl and not a boy (see my other blog).
2 episodes have been aired yesterday and I’ve seen most of them.
Quite interesting family series, but the boys are very young and not that handsome. Often in black short with 2 zippers and a belt. Not sure if it’s leather or nappa. Maybe rather some sort of plastic (PVC). The fabric seems very thin. But there are some few other boys in brown buckskin Lederhosen but few and brief scenes and mainly from a distance. ALso the twins in other shorts and pajamas.
Pic 1 from ep 2, pic 2 from ep 3. Ep 3+4 will be aired next Monday but much fewer good scenes. Ep 4 is set 5 years later. Also a boy in bib overalls in ep 4 (soon on my other blog, rating ~3).
Also interesting bedroom, soon on that blog, rating ~4-5.
Main entry, currently still rating 9, but rather 6-7
As announced, I made some more pics, to show the other actors, the front of the purple/brown suit and the stockings of Billi (Benjamin Zobrys).
Pic 1 from DVD 1, other pics from the funfair episode on disc 2.
Most supporting actors are shown from a distance like the 3 boys in different sailor suits. There are even some more boys. One sitting watching a puppet theater (rear view). Pic 4 showing one boy fighting. But most of interest is of course Billi. And I haven’t noticed girls in sailor dresses at the fair. Only later one relative. Pic 4 also showing the main character in pigtails and a straw hat as well.
Main entry, rating 10
I’ve uploaded some better and larger pics of epsode 27, probably the best one concerning Lederhosen (rating 10). Unfortunately rather few and brief scenes.
Now also an update on my shiny shorts blog, rating 6.
