Info 293: Rolf (70s yodeling boy)


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.

Comment: Some boys (Kinderhitparaden Allstars) in longer buckskin Lederhosen with H-style suspenders including Toni Kraus “de klaane Flugficht“. Last episode, probably in Dec 2003. I haven’t found much about this show, once a year was a kids special of Achims Hitparade (1989-2006). At least already shown in the 1990s or earlier. Maybe also others in Lederhosen? Achim said it’s episode 175 of Achims Hitparade (which had 215 episodes up to 2006). At least one other, redhaired boy in longer black Lederhosen in 5/1998 (YouTube title includes Maryline Menweg Akkordeon Instrumental).

I found this clip by coincidence on YouTube. Songs: “Es ist so schön, ein Musikant zu sein” & Vogelhochzeit.

Rating ~4. (Toni is very young, more of interest the older chubby boy).

Immer wieder sonntags (Tölzer Knabenchor)


Yesterday there were the boys choir Tölzer Knabenchor in episode 5 (2018, s24e5, episode 33) at around 11.15 h.

Typical, longer buckskin Lederhosen with H-style suspenders. Unfortunately no rear views. Also briefly at the end (mainly headshots) but I miss some parts. Also close-ups.

Handsome boys and good voices. I also have some few more entries of them.

Rating ~6.

Comment: At least 19 yo Philipp Schmitze-Elsen in longer, light brown buckskin Lederhosen with H-style suspenders and some men in shorter, darker Lederhosen also dancing Schuhplattler at the Oktoberfest (probably in 2017). Maybe some others including boys in the background?

Tomorrow on TV (Kika) or on the mediathek. Final episode 12.

I don’t like Philipp, but it’s an interesting documentary, today it was about The Netherlands. There was also an episode about Austria, but I think not with Lederhosen.

More infos later. Obviously few scenes at the beginning only.

Also even more interesting was the earlier series “Das erste Mal … USA!” (bib overalls blog, rating 4 f,m). Also showing younger ranch boys in jeans.

For now rating 2-3 only.

I missed some parts, but I haven’t noticed any younger boys. So rather rating 2.  Interesting the homes of hosts Philipp and Louisa.

Comment: Some boys in short and long buckskin Lederhosen with H-style suspenders. One might be nappa or smooth finished leather. 18 minutes, other sources say 12 minutes. For grades 1-4. Also scenes at school (including girl in pigtails). First I thought of a 1900s setting (Great grandmother) but obviously it’s “just” the 1950s. Also shirtless scenes swimming in shorts.

I found a trailer by coincidence on YouTube and don’t know the complete movie.

Available on DVD but expensive and for schools only.

Seems interesting. No entry on IMDb.

Rating at least 5-6.

Comment: Comedy duet “Vater und Sohn” from Neuhausen played by Ronald Witt and his son Justin both in Lederhosen, also sitting. The Lederhosen of the son are much longer and have H-style suspenders (partly hidden under the gingerbread hearts). Mr. Witt is the president of the Narrenbund Neuhausen and also a politician. Justin also was “Child Prince” one or two years ago.

Handsome boy but here with a chicken hat.

Has been aired yesterday (live broadcast). Also available on the mediathek.

Rating ~5-6.

Comment: The few boys in this mixed choir in medium brown, long, buckskin Lederhosen, also sitting.

Again, A Merry Christmas! This show has been rebroadcasted yesterday on WDR. I have only seen some few parts at the end. Filmed in Salzburg or Saulzburg region, the location of the famous Christmas song Stille Nacht, Heilige Nacht. (Silent Night, Holy Night).

Not sure about the name of the choir, maybe der Kinderchor der Gumpoldskirchner Spatzen. Hosts Sonja Weissensteiner and Harald Krassnitzer.

Rating at least 4-5. Needs to be rechecked. I didn’t expect Lederhosen this year at Christmas, as I can’t receive Bavarian channel BR anymore.

Update: Abenteuer 1900 – Leben im Gutshaus


I have uploaded these 2 other and larger pics of this series also showing the collar flaps which are not very long but at regular length.

And next to the white and dark blue blouse, there are also medium blue ones.

Main entry, rating 5


In the TV guide there was announced Meine Kindheit… auf dem Schloss (previously called Meine Kindheit… im Schloss), but it is canceld. Lederhosen rating 7.

Comment: 2 boys in historical clothes (pants with suspenders), 1 blonde, one darkhaired. Also girls, teens and grown-ups. The Musical is a special version of A Christmas Story (Charles Dickens) currently shown in Nordhausen.

The ballet group is the Bundesjugendballett Berlin. But not sure if the young kids are also located there. And not sure if they are playing in Nordhausen. Or part of that theatre (Kinderstatisterie).

The kids also decorating cookies at a table for a long time later (also sitting rear view). Musical scene at around 40 minutes (mediathek). A short clip is also on YouTube.

The blond boy reminds me of another boy actor. Not sure who. Louis Hofmann?
