Rating: ***
Comment: Some older “teens” or more likely young men and women in different, mainly 70s style shiny shorts including yellow, white, black, turqouise, medium and dark blue. Also sitting scenes (yellow shirtless) and also at least 2 men with sweatpants underneath (lying on the floor).

I found this by coincidence but haven’t seen the complete movie.

Typical movie of it’s time. Teens are quite old. Mainly 20s and 30s. Starring 33 yo Mauro Di Franceso and 19 yo Isabella Ferrari.

Rating 2-3 only.

Comment: Some boys in longer, modern shorts including medium and dark blue, orange and black and also at least 2 boys shirtless in swim shorts (medium blue and black). Scenes at 15 and 17 minutes.

Rating 4-5 only.

Few and brief scenes and I prefer shorter shorts. Swim shorts are even worse. So rating 4 instead of 5. There are better movies.

Also on my bib overalls blog (girl, rating 6) and my bedroom blog, rating 6 as well.

Comment: Some boys (6th graders) in shorts and swim shorts. Not sure about the country pictured, probably Greece in or around 1989. Boys in white, red and black shorts. Black shorts with (2 ?) yellow stripes. Probably some more in shorts and I think also orange shorts. Swim shorts in Dutch colors blue, white and red. Most or all others here in speedos). Not sure about girls.

I don’t remember the original game show and probably only saw the final 1989 and/or 1988 episode in where the winning class won a journey. Not sure if there were also kids in the studio in shorts.

Needs to be rechecked for this and the original show and other colors.

Rating 6-7 for now.

Update: I found some more episodes on VHS labeled with Tunisia, Yugoslavia, Turkey and Soviet Union (Moscow). Probably pic 1 is in Turkey. Pic 2 could be in Tunisia but I still think in Greece. I also remember a scene where they are on an ancient archaelogical site either Greece or Turkey (but probably Greece). At least half of them in shiny shorts.

Comment: Boys and mainly girls at PE in tight shiny dark blue and some in black shorts (at least one boy in Adidas Junior) but most in non-Adidas shorts and at least Soccer boys outside in shiny black shorts in another episode. Pic 1 from episode11 Truus (1987).

I haven’t checked all episodes but there are obviously rather few and brief scenes.

But very interesting like all of Karst van der Meulen series.

Rating 6-7 for now.

I like Dutch television. More posts coming soon, also on most my other blogs.

Comment: Some young Soccer boys and girls (1st graders?) in yellow and white shorts. At least one with the drawstring outside. I think few and rather brief scenes at 1h10.

Also soon on my bib overalls blog (girls rating 4).

I like Tim Allen and Home Improvement (rating 7), but I don’t like this movie.

Very young kids and few scenes, but better than none as this is a Christmas movie.

So rating 4-5 only. I don’t assume shorts scenes in the sequels.

Comment: Some Soccer boys and teen boys in white and the other team in medium blue shorts. Not sure about the fabric. At least the white ones look shiny. 2 longer Soccer scenes.

I prefer the white shorts. Quite interesting but there are better movies.

Comment: There are obviously Soccer scenes of probably older teen boys or men in shiny blue and red shorts. And also swimming scenes (not sure if just speedos or swim shorts as well).

I have or had a TV recording, but currently only found short clips and trailers.

So needs to be rechecked later.

Rating 3-4 for now only.

Also on my bib overalls blog, rating 5.

There’s also a 2008 TV series, but I don’t remember shiny shorts in that.

Update: Tele-Fußball

telefussball2

I found another boy, this time 12 yo Kevin from California. This time, the kids are in white shiny Adidas shorts.

White shorts are very nice, but the walking scene of the boy from London in green shorts are much better (rating 10).

Rating 6-7 for this one. I haven’t found the older girl as leading kid. Probably I haven’t digitized them, yet.

Comment: Several Soccer boys in longer, dark blue, medium blue, white, red and maybe black and I think one in dark green shiny shorts, mainly or only Adidas. But I think some without stripes. Also locker room and sitting scenes. My favorites are the white ones.

And a girl in bib overalls, other blog, rating 5 (soon be updated).

Not that bad, but I prefer shorter shorts and US movies. Quite good family movie. English title: Carlitos and the Chance of a Lifetime. Has been aired long time ago, so I don’t remember everything.

So rating 5.

Comment: Several boys (around 40 ?) in white shiny shorts, mostly simple, plain white without stripes. Some few with two black stripes. Nice jumping scenes.

I found a very brief clip on my backups. Currently, I don’t know the exact year. Must be around 1990, I assume 1992 because of the Olympia text (Amsterdam nomination). I also recorded much in 1992. Broadcaster Veronica.

I can’t say much more as I haven’t found my original tape. I definiteley don’t have the complete show. But probably these boys were only shown at the beginning (or less likeley the end) of the show.
