Update: Stark! – Kinder erzählen ihre Geschichte


I finally found a pic of this Spanish boy, Juan Pablo ?  (with a heart disease) in purple track shorts. I think also in wet, red shorts (shirtless) but could be a different boy and episode.

I like the color purple. Main entry, rating 6


I also found something new on my old tapes (coming soon).


Cloned (1997) ?


TV drama ?

Clothing occurence: low+ ?
Rating:  6/10 ?
Rating: ******
Comment: Some Soccer playing boys in black shorts. Is this Canadian Alexander Pollock on front?

I found this pic on one of my backups. German title: “Um jeden Preis”. But there are different movies with this title. Captured in 2004, so can’t be the later movies 2014/2012. There’s a 1994 German movie and a 1988 USA movie starring Fred Savage (about running). Looks somehow rather German to me. I haven’t found pics or even clips for confirmation, but I think it’s this 1997 movie as he looks like Alexander Pollock.

Not bad, but I assume few good scenes.

Rating 6 for now. Who can help to confirm this?

Tsatsiki – Vänner för alltid


Family film part 2
Year: 2001
Year in film: 2000s ?
Country: SUE, DK, NO
Who in shorts: Tsatsiki, boy ~10
Who in shorts 2:
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no, partly TV recording
Clothing occurence: low+ ?
Rating:  5/10 ?
Rating: *****
Comment: At least 10 yo Romanian born Samuel Haus as Tsatsiki shirtless and wet in red swim shorts (according to publicity pics also in dark blue) and his friend in dark blue ones at an indoor pool. The blonde boy is a bit chubby and more of interest.

I don’t remember the complete movie, but assume rather few good scenes.

Also shorts in the other movies including pink. Also a girl in shortalls, soon on my overalls blog, rating ~4.

Rating 5-6 for now only. Typical modern longer shorts. I will recheck it more carefully the next broadcasting.

English title: Tsatsiki: Friends Forever.

Update 2: Schloss Einstein


I found the swimming / faked drowning scene of Sebastian, played by Marcus Wengler in episode 123. Unfortunately only in long dark pants, maybe black or dark blue and briefly and partly shown when they carried him out of the lake (wet). In the same episode he also wore shiny, white, longer pants, also sitting (pictured). Also running in them, maybe in another episode.

I don’t remember him or anybody else in shiny shorts, besides those, I’ve already found (rating 7 including dark blue (Marc), and the Wrestling scene, yellow and blue).

However, Sebastian is also shown twice shirtless in underwear when Vera painting him. Once in retro shorts (not shiny) and once in I think shiny, silky boxer shorts (dark blue?). In and around ep 121 (season 3, 2000). Not bad, but brief scenes as well. And this blog is not about underwear.

The Neverending Story II: The Next Chapter


Adventure film starring Jonathan Brandis
Year: 1990
Year in film: 1980s
Country: USA, Germany
Who in shorts: Bastian ~13
Who in shorts 2:
Available on DVD: yes
I own: yes, partly TV recording
Clothing occurence: low-
Rating:  7/10
Rating: *******
Comment: At least Jonathan Brandis (1976-2003) shirtless in wet, white/yellow striped swim shorts coming out of the water and climbing up a ladder at an indoor pool. Nice rear view. Most or all other boys in speedos (I wonder why).

Not sure about the fabric. The shorts aren’t really shiny, but nice swim shorts and good scene. Another young died and very handsome actor.

Not sure about the correct time setting. Filmed probably in 1989, setting maybe in the early 80s like the novel and the first part.

Brief scene at the beginning, so rating 7 only. Originally, I only wanted to post really shiny shorts but why not post these swim shorts as well?

Also on my bedroom blog, rating 5.

Tiere bis unters Dach


Family farm series. 6+seasons
Year: 2010-
Year in film: ~2010
Country: Germany
Who in shorts: Jonas ~13
Who in shorts 2:
Available on DVD: yes

Rating:  5/10
Rating: *****
Comment: At least Fynn Henkel (1996-2015) in dark blue shiny shorts (wet and shirtless) in s1e10 (brief scene at the beginning). I think 2 other boys in boards shorts (including pink parts ?). Girls in bikinis and in a later episode at least one in jeans shorts. Soccer playing men in ep 45 (dark blue and red). I don’t remember other episodes showing shiny shorts, but it’s possible.

I didn’t knew that Fynn Henkel died in 2015. R.I.P.

Also boys, girls, men and woman in bib overalls/shortalls including fire fighters (overalls blog, rating 6). And on my bedroom blog rating 5 including a high sleeper.

Rating 5 only. Great series though. Also of interest: Pawel.

ATP Tennis blonde ball boys 1993 ?


German ATP Tour WM match
Year: 1993 ?
Year in film: 1990s
Country: Germany
Who in shorts: boys ~12
Who in shorts 2:
Available on DVD: no ?

Clothing occurence: often
Rating:  9/10
Rating: *********
Comment: At least 2 very handsome German blonde boys as ball kids in these medium blue shiny shorts with yellow parts at the sides.

I’m not sure about the year. It must be between 1993 and 1997. I think in 1993 as there appeared matches between Michael Stich and Chang and Courier vs Medvedev. I’m also not sure about the city. I always thought of Hamburg but there’s a sand court. So probably either in Stuttgart in February (or less likely in Frankfurt in Nov). I have to recheck my clips. I’m not a big Tennis fan. But this was probably the best I’ve seen (showing shiny shorts, what is I think rare).

The camera often focussed to these boys. Once, one boy was hit by a ball and later almost hit and the audience say Ooh! He’s still smiling after that (pic 1). The commentator also talks about them and that they could be brothers.

As usual, I couldn’t record all games on VHS and only kept some few parts. I think I would buy it on DVD.

Rating 9-10.

I also have uploaded additional pics to Eva & Adam, Artificial Intelligence: AI, Tiger (1997) and Terms of Endearment.

Baywatch (1989)


Family series. David Hasselhoff 242 ep
Year: 1989-2001
Year in film: 1990s
Country: USA
Who in shorts: Hobie ~12
Who in shorts 2: other teen boys, men
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no, partly TV recording
Clothing occurence: medium
Rating:  8/10 ?
Rating: ********
Comment: First, Hobie, played by Brandon Call (season 1) and later by Jeremy Jackson in at least dark blue shorts. Also other boys, teen boys and men in mainly dark blue and light red shorts, also shirtless. Several other supporting actors in shorts in other colors but often in the background. And the shorts are modern and not that shiny. Also some in speedos, board shorts and surf suits.

Finally, I have found some of my recordings. Pic 1 showing Brandon Call in an unknown episode of season 1 (1989 or 1990). Pic 2 is from s4e3 (1994). There are also light blue, light green and yellow shorts (shirtless). Girls and women mainly or only in bikinis.

I don’t remember all episodes but this is a great series. Best probably seasons 1-4 only when Hobie is still young, but needs to be checked for supporting actors. I hope for a soon rebroadcasting.

Rating 8 for now. I assume rather few perfect scenes. Few episodes of Brandon Call and I don’t like much Jeremy Jackson with dark and curly hair.

Also on my bib overalls blog (including Trevor Morgan in season 7, rating 4) and my bedroom blog, rating 4 (Jackson in season 6).


Ti kniver i hjertet


Year: 1994
Year in film: 1960s
Country: Norway
Who in shorts: Otto ~15
Who in shorts 2: other teen boys
Available on DVD: yes
I own: yes, partly TV recording
Clothing occurence: low
Rating:  7/10
Rating: *******
Comment: Next to some Soccer playing teen boys in red and dark blue shorts at the beginning and end, more notable is Martin Dahl Garfalk as main character Otto, shirtless in red, medium brown or orange, wet swim shorts. Also even undressing them (rear view only). Maybe none of these 60s shorts are really shiny.

I’m not sure about the correct color. I remember warmer colors on my TV, even in the woods, more like orange, but might result from his shirt. They are wet anyway.

Nice and awarded coming-of-age movie and like most Skandinavian movies set in or around the 60s. (I wonder why). Some few other funny scenes/scenes of interest (peeing at someone’s door mat, dropping down pants in front of a blind man) but the best is of course the lake scene at around 11 minutes. English title: Cross My Heart and Hope to Die. The German title is even more simple and I often forget it.

Rating 7. The DVD is currently very expensive here and maybe not worth for just this brief scene. 1992 novel “Gutten som ville være en av gutta” by Lars Saabye Christiansen.
