Comment: Although set in 1958 (I think all parts, including the spin-offs), there are some shorts that appear shiny or sort of. I have briefly checked all or almost all parts. Mainly older teen boys / young men including Momo (Bobby) shirtless in tight black shorts (pic 3 from Lemon Popsicle VII). Also there one young man in dark blue shorts and one in grey.

Pic 1 showing a young man in light blue shorts, I think from movie 1. Pic 2 showing a young boy in medium blue shorts in movie 8 (Summertime Blues: Lemon Popsicle VIII, 1988). Probably some more supporting actors. Also cotton shorts and speedos. I mainly remember movie 3 with a young boy completely without clothes and peeing on Johnny, buried in the sand. Maybe they don’t pay much attention of the actors in the background. Shiny shorts (except for boxers) were rare in the 1950s (up to the late 70s) and anachronistic to me.

Revenge of the Nerds II reminds me of this series. Original title (part 1)  אסקימו לימון

Most boys are very old. Rather few shiny shorts. And nowadays not very funny.

So rating 2-3 only.

Also soon on my sailor suit blog and pigtails blog.

Update: There are also older teen girls in tight, blue shorts in film #1, but not sure if these are shiny. One pic on my pigtails blog, rating 5.
