-Year in film: 1970s
-Country: UK
-Who in bibs: Anne ~14ys
-Available on DVD: yes
-I own: no
-Bib occurence: low? 
-Rating:  4/10 
-Rating: ****
-Comment: Jennifer Thanisch aka Jenny Thanisch (pictured) in medium blue and also at least another darker bibs with ambroidery. (I saw a pic on a Famous Five fansite). Obviously 3 different bibs (for more infos about episodes see commentary.) I assume tight bibs of the 70s and also worn with a belt. This is the original Enid Blyton series. There are also a 1996 series, an animated series and earlier b/w films/series as well as similar Blyton series (see also The Enid Blyton Secret Series). I watched this series in the 1980s but of course can't rememember all episodes. I somehow don't like this series anymore. It's too oldfashioned. DVDs are finally now available. Pic is from episode 3.4 Five Go to Demon's Rock. There is also an episode with the word farm in it but I have to check it and don't assume much farm work or many bib scenes or other actors. Some episodes on YouTube but in very bad VHS image quality. Good exciting kids' series, for bib scenes only 4 for now.

I think she wears three different denim bib overalls. She wears them in episodes 4, 5, 6, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 20, 21, 22. In some episodes she wears them from the beginning to the end.
