Update: Believe (2013)


I have completely checked this movie (at high speed) for my overalls blog. Indeed many (good) scenes of shiny shorts/Soccer (f,m). Next to the white and great light blue shorts, there are also dark blue shorts.

And at least the goalkeeper (white shorts) wore black compression shorts underneath.

Main entry, still rating 7


Plaese also note my previous post.

Also soon on my bedroom blog, rating ~6.

Update: It (2017)


I have almost checked the complete movie (but at high speed, so it’s possible that I miss some scenes, especially supporting actors, I think I’ve seen dark blue shorts at school, but maybe not shiny), mainly for my bib overalls blog (update there coming next, also with more girls). Also great bedrooms scenes, soon on my other blog.

The only notable and great shiny shorts are the dark red ones. I haven’t noticed (good) cycling nor sitting scenes in them. And the yellow shorts are unfortunately not shiny.

As mentioned before, good tighty whitey scenes of all main characters.

I don’t like the characters. I prefer the 1990 movie.

Main entry, still rating 6

Comment: Next to the teacher also some or at least these 2 boys shirtless and wet in swim shorts. Modern, mainly longer shorts / board shorts. At least the red shorts look shiny to me. Sorry for the bad pic. Needs to be updated and rechecked the next airing.

I have seen this on TV some time ago and remember only one, rather brief scene at the outdoor pool, I think near the end. Also shown in the shallow water at bird’s eye. And most kids are already in the water or shown from a distance. Also on my bib overalls blog (girl, rating 3).

I also have here “Mees Kees langs de lijn” and the 2017 TV series.


UKW: Sommersprossen


Has been aired in yesterday’s show Damals war’s (pic 1). One band member shirtless in pink shiny shorts. Either Peer Gerlach or Andreas Schwarz-Ruszczynski. Others in speedos. Maybe some more in the background? Available on the mdr mediathek. Scene at 9 minutes. I haven’t found this on YouTube.

Pic 2 from the regular ZDF Hitparade 1982 YouTube clips showing dark blue shiny shorts. I think also someone in white shorts?

Rating 2-3 only.

Update: Mees Kees langs de lijn


Nice, medium blue shorts with yellow border and at least some of the dark blue shorts are from Adidas with red stripes (pic 1 on the left). Girls in black shorts like the goalkeeper but not or not that shiny.

The series Mees Kees (2017) also has to be checked completely (currently running).

Mees Kees op de planken also has to be added (very few swimming scenes and most shorts are probably board shorts. At least one boy in shorter, maybe shiny red shorts.

English title: Mister Twister at the Pitch.

Main entry, previously rating 3, now rather ~5


Came the Brawn


Classic comedy short film (Little Rascals)
Year: 1938
Year in film: 1930s
Country: USA
Who in shorts: Alfalfa, Butch
Who in shorts 2:
Available on DVD: yes

Rating:  3/10
Rating: ***
Comment: Another boxing scenes of Alfalfa versus Butch (Calf Switzer and Tommy Bond).

Alfalfa wearing maybe the same long, red shorts like in the colorized version of Glove Taps and underneath long jeans (also on my overalls blog). Butch later pulling down the shorts of Alfalfa.

Butch has different shorts, probably white or similar. Also sitting in those.

I’m currently checking the Our Gang series and even have ordered a DVD (silent films). More infos on my overalls blog.

There are also swimming and shirtless scenes in the later MGM series, but I only found some few pics and no clips, yet. Best swimming scenes probably in “Going to Press” (1942) with at least 5 boys in swim shorts or underwear including Froggy, Fatty and Spanky and I think Leonard and maybe Mickey.


Detetives do Prédio Azul: O Filme


Family film, based on kids’ TV series aka D.P.A.
Year: 2017
Year in film: 2010s
Country: Brazil
Who in shorts: boys ~15-17 ?, men
Who in shorts 2:
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Clothing occurence: low ?
Rating:  2/10 ?
Rating: **
Comment: Mainly or only older teen boys and men in mainly modern, longer shiny white Soccer shorts including one of the main characters, 15 yo Caue Campos as Capim (unpictured, also sitting). Also some ladies and men in yellow shorts/dresses.

I found this during research for other series of Brazil for my overalls blog.

The movie is obviously quite poor compared to the series. But I don’t know shiny shorts in that (only cotton).

Rating ~2 for now only. I think also few scenes. And the boys are old and long shorts.
