Comment: As anounced, Keith Coogan aka Keith Mitchell, around 8 or 9 yo but even younger looking, in shiny red 70s shorts (also sitting) in ep. Eagleman (s3e23, 1980). Also sitting in jeans. Also shirtless boys and teen boys in swim shorts in other episodes. Also Indian boys including one younger boy in segment “Children of Mentu” (same ep).

One episode starring Eve Plumb (of The Brady Bunch) also showing shirtless boys and teen boys in swim shorts, maybe ep. The Swimmer (s3e1, 1979), starring Ronnie Scribner (Dallas) and kids in wheelchairs. I just found a b&w pic.

Probably some more actors in shorts in other episodes (f/m). Who can help?

Interesting series with many guest stars. Needs to be rechecked and updated soon.

Rating 4 for Keith Mitchell, probably rating at least 5 for older boys.

Update: I now found the episode. Nice swim shorts including medium blue, black and white, but unfortunately few and brief scenes. Rating 5.
