Comment:
At least these (Soccer ?) boys in red shorts. Also at least one shown sitting. Not bad, but I think few and brief scenes at the beginning (at 4′) only.

Also on my bib overalls blog (boy in shortalls, girls and woman rating 5).

There are definitely better movies.

So rating 4-5 only.

Update: Die Kinder vom Alstertal

kindervomalstertal-s1e5

I found a third, great swimming scene in s1e5.

Pictured are young Niklas in red/light blue/black swim shorts, Tobias in light blue ones and Sebastian in orange/black/grey swim shorts or maybe board shorts. Also nice rear view (wet) when going out of the lake. Tobias’ shorts obviously have inner nettings and he don’t wear anything else. Also girls in swimwear but I think not in shorts.

I don’t like at all Tobias. My favourite actor here is Sebastian.

Also an update on my bib overalls blog (rating 5)

Comment:
Some Soccer boys in shiny shorts including at least 2 red and one in light blue. I think the light blue one has a long white drawstring bouncing outside.

I found this pic on my backups. I think this was a commercial about diabetic (or was it asthma ?). Main character is the boy in the light blue shorts. I think also shown in (light blue ?) pajamas at night.

I’m not sure about the broadcasting date and haven’t found (my) clip, yet. Either 1988 or 1989 or early 1990s.

Also not sure about the purpose. Maybe donations or saver living or that people should go check themselves or for a hotline. I think it’s not about a product. Has anybody more details?

Update: Manni, der Libero

manniderlibero-ep7manniderlibero-ep13

As announced, I have now rechecked almost all episodes (except ep 1-3). Mostly, the teen boys wore dark blue Adidas shorts with yellow and also white stripes (with inner briefs). Also sitting like in ep 6.

At least twice in shiny white Adidas shorts with blue stripes (pic 1 from ep 7 showing Thomas Ohrner).

Pic 2 showing younger boys in ep 13 in dark blue, non-Adidas shorts. Brief scene and I think the only younger boys except of ep 1.

Pic 3 showing the opposite team in shiny green Adidas shorts, some shorts are tight. Episode 4.

Pic 4 showing a Turkish team in black Adidas shorts in ep 8.

About half of the series, they don’t show Soccer scenes. Main entry, rating 6 at

Info 37: Puma shorts (Manni, der Libero, other)

manniderlibero-ep12manniderlibero-ep12puma

I have recently rechecked the DVD box of Manni, der Libero (rating 6, more updates coming very soon). Also now on my pigtails blog.

In ep 12 there are teen boys in shiny red Puma shorts.

Puma shorts (in movies) are obviously rare and probably limited to short time period of the early (and mid) 80s. I’m not sure if they had inner briefs as well, but I do think so.

For now, I have 3 other post that might include shorts of Puma

Comment:
Many school kids in different shorts of different colors, including yellow, red and dark blue, not sure about the fabric. Probably cotton in the 60s and 70s (I think partly b&w anyway). And probably also shiny shorts at least in the (late 80s) and 90s (including black, light green and white but longer, modern shorts).

I’m not East German, so I haven’t seen this series then. And I only have seen some few clips online. Pic 1 clip titled/from  22.08.1982. Pic 2 from an unknown date, maybe later.

Rating at least 5 for now.

Info 36: Tiere bis unters Dach

tierebisuntersdach

On Sept, 8, there will be 7 new episodes of season 6 aired. At least girls, probably also boys in swimwear.

Pic from s1e10. Also on most my other blogs.

I’m currently searching for pics of the Bundesgartenschau 1997 (Buga) in Gelsenkirchen showing many boys in blue Adidas shorts. I somewhere must have a clip. I couldn’t find anything online and I’m not sure about the exact TV show title.

Update 2: Kidsongs

kidsongs-footloosekidsongs-footloose2

Last night, I remembered The Cedarmont Kids and especially the song “She’ll Be Comin’ ‘Round the Mountain” (overalls blog, rating 8), and so, I’ve checked if there are other clips. And I found a version from Kidsongs. And later some more clips of them. Updates on my other blog also coming soon.

Pictured is the song “Footloose” (1987). I have checked almost all Kidsongs vid, and I wonder, how I could miss this and others.

At least a girl and boy in light blue shiny Adidas shorts. Also Basketball playing boys and girls in green and yellow shorts. Very good, although some kids are very young.

Update 4: Meatballs

meatballs-u3emeatballs-u3c

As announced, another, final update of Meatballs. I have checked most of the important scenes more carefully and almost all (Adidas) shorts turned out to be not shiny but of cotton fabric, including the green ones.

I just found an interesting scene at 12 minutes (pic 1) with the young boys. There’s one boy in medium blue, shiny shorts with 4 stripes, also lying on the bed. Another boy in (non-shiny) dark blue Adidas shorts.

Pic 2 showing a boy in 70s style red shorts (after 36 minutes) at the parent’s day being embraced.

Pic 3 at 1h21 showing a girl in white (shiny) Adidas and another girl in dark blue shiny 70s shorts. The man, I already had.

Pic 4 showing older teen boys/young men, one in white 70s shorts, one in medium blue sitting, one in orange shorts with red sweat pants underneath and an older teen girl in tight, white shorts.

Unpictured: Another young man in sweat pants underneath at the wrestling scene at 1h11. And another boy in red shorts at 1h21 (rear view, from a distance) next many others. I think, there’s one young boy sitting in black shorts (but from a distance) and maybe also dark yellow shorts (not shiny). So almost all colors, except pink and purple. Not sure about grey ones.

I think, I have to recheck the movie again later at slow speed, especially the audience. Most and best scenes near the end at the different competitions. Main overview entry, rating 8 at

Comment:
At least these older teen boys/young men in medium blue, dark blue and orange shorts. Maybe not all are shiny like the grey ones. Pics from s4e4 “The Team”. Also a man in blue shorts in s4e8. The orange shorts of the blond teen are quite interesting. Is this a boy?

I don’t know all episodes but doubt for much more and better scenes.

Also on my bib overalls blog (boy, girl, rating 5).

Rating 2-3 for these brief scenes of older teen boys.
