Comment: Some teen boys in different shorts, but probably most shorts aren’t shiny. Maybe the red and yellow ones. Also the red shorts of a man look shiny. Pics from s1e9 The Race. Other colors include dark blue, black, medium green, light blue and light pink (Pugwall, but not shiny). Pic 1 on left showing the drummer Orfo sitting in red shorts; my favourite band member.

Also young men shirtless in board shorts also a boy in season 2 but very brief scenes and from a distance. I don’t know all episodes (especially season 1 needs to be rechecked) but obviously few or no scenes in other episodes.

Interesting series, I used to watch back then. Also a girl and older teen boy in bib overalls, other blog, rating 5. For shorts, rating ~3-4 only.

Comment: Some teen boys including Alexander Bainbridge playing Hockey in tight, I think dark blue shorts (yellow sides), other team in white. Shorts are probably not or not that shiny. Only one brief scene. Sebastian also comes closer.

I remember having seen this movie then on TV. Some few quite good scenes like in the bathtub or skinny dipping in the sea and I like the different characters, but there are better movies and I prefer US movies and real shiny shorts not that tight.

So rating ~ 3-4 only.

Also soon on my bedroom blog ~rating 6.

Comment: Some boys (and maybe girls and men?) in at least medium blue and red 70s shorts (but maybe not shiny). Red shorts also sitting, but side view. Also Daniel Lobo probably in shiny white shorts and sleeveless white/red shirt in 1986 (I currently can’t access this YouTube vid mdf0YFuqsrk). Pics should be from episode 1 of 1977.

Also boys, girls, men and women in bib overalls or similar on my other blog, rating 8 (soon to be updated). Also nice rooms.

Vids of the 80s are quite rare and most vids have a bad image quality. There are also some (publicity) pics.

So needs to be rechecked.

Update: also shirtless scenes in red shorts in 1985.

Update: Just for Kicks (2003) brand Score

justforkicks-n2justforkicks-n3

Some new pics of this one. It was difficult to identify some brands, luckily I found a close-up pic. So, the medium blue shorts in the main entry and probably one black pair (pic 4) are from the US brand Score Sports. I think I also have them elsewhere.

As said, the long yellow shorts and the red ones of Dylan (pic 2) are from Adidas. Pic 3 showing Cole in the light blue ones (also sitting but from a distance).

Also interesting the purple shorts, unknown brand, 2 yellow stripes.

Main entry, still rating 6 at

I also identified a logo, which I think had before (maybe in Cebollitas ?). It’s Golddigga.

Comment: Cole and Dylan Sprouse and other boys in mainly longer, medium blue shiny Soccer shorts (also sitting), the other team in longer red shorts (also a team in black ones), goalkeeper in black and also yellow ones. Also at least one boy in yellow shorts outside the field. I think Cole in light blue shorts but not sure if shiny, Dylan in black ones, woman in pink (probably not shiny).

How could I forgot this Soccer movie?

Dylan Sprouse (pictured in glasses, Cole without) also in bib overalls (since 2011 on my bib overalls blog, rating 4).

I haven’t seen this movie for a long time and have to recheck it. Also shirtless and cycling and bunk bed scenes.

I don’t like at all Dylan’s glasses and the boys are quite young, but I think I have to give at least rating 6-7. DVD title: Just 4 Kicks.

Update: I have briefly checked it. More scenes than assumed. Cole or Dylan in red Adidas shorts (brief scene) and the longer yellow shorts (other boy) are also Adidas. I think, I can identify 1 or 2 more brands. Also boys briefly in white and purple shorts. More pics soon. Not sure if it’s worth buying. I think rather few good scenes. Boys are young and mostly not that handsome. Update 2: Brand of medium blue and black is Score Sports.

Comment: Another, older suggestion, (Sorry, I’m running out of movies, please prepare for less frequent blogging and please more suggestions !).

One blond man in black Adidas sampdoria shorts with white stripes. Obviously black compression shorts underneath.

I don’t like men in shorts and I don’t like much black shorts either, but at least compression shorts, so rating 2 instead of 1. For the sake of completion. I don’t have any posts rating 1, so this is my least favourite one. He’s not that old or ugly, though. I only have checked this briefly.

Comment: Some boys and maybe some girls in (shiny) short. Pic from the 2017 contest showing 2 boys in black and yellow shorts, both Adidas. Sitting, standing. Also a brief scene of a young boy shirtless in a pool in swim shorts.

I found this by coincidence or better hard research on YouTube. Obviusly a local contest. Not sure if broadcasted on local TV or most-likely just online.

I haven’t checked all episodes.

There are also girls in shorts, but most or all shorts aren’t shiny.

Rating even 6-7 for now.

Originally, I wanted to post “Double Dare” today. But the shorts turned out to be long jogging pants interrupted with a knee pad.

Comment: Some boys and girls in (at least) black Adidas Junior shorts, also wet games. Some shorts appear longer (two shorts ?). Handsome blonde kids. Maybe also some in the audience in shorts?

Another, older suggestion. Thanks very much! And sorry, I forgot these.

3 YouTube clips titled Rally Planeten, but Rallyplaneten is the correct title.

Based on the British show “Run the Risk” (and earlier Double Dare). There are also some other shows in other countries, mainly in the 90s like “Drops!” in Germany but mainly the Nickelodeon shows. But I don’t remember shiny shorts in there. Needs to be rechecked for other and upcoming clips.

No entry on IMDb. Aired on TV4. Hosts: David Hellenius and Sofia Eriksson.

Comment: Some, mainly younger boys in shorts, most notable these 2 boys in dark blue and dark green shorts. Maybe not shiny as set in the 1960s. Few scenes at 17 minutes. One older boy or young man in black shorts and a teen girl in dark blue shorts.

So rating 3-4 only. Also soon on my bedroom blog.

Update: The Love Boat (1977)

loveboat-s1e3

I have briefly rechecked this episode (s1e3) and uploaded a better, complete pic of this one, 16 yo Scott Baio shirtless in wet, white shiny shorts with 3 red stripes (not sure if these are Adidas).  Also showing Kristy McNichol in white shorts but probably not shiny.

I have briefly checked some episodes of season 1 , but haven’t found any other scenes of interest.

Also recently 2 episodes on my bib overalls blog (boy, girl, rating up to 3).

Main entry here, rating 9 (maybe now a bit lower) at
