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

Update: Diff’rent Strokes

diffrentstrokes-s1e22diffrentstrokes-s1e22b

While updating my bib overalls blog, I found 2 more episodes with shorts.

Some teen girls in s1e22. Most shorts might not be shiny including light red, yellow, pink and medium blue. At least 2 girls in dark blue or similar shorts which are probably shiny, also sitting. And one younger girl in tight shortalls.

In s7e22 there’s a shirtless, black teen boy/young man in tight, medium blue shorts.

I don’t like any of those. The girls are quite interesting. Rating ~3-4.

Main entry, rating 3 (older teen boys)

Comment: Several boys and girls in 70s shorts. Most shorts of the boys aren’t shiny like jeans shorts and bermudas. One blonde boy, I think Robbie Rist in white Adidas shorts or pants (and) white 70s shorts. At least 2 girls in light blue shorts. Other girls in white, light red, yellow and tight dark blue shorts. Some shorts maybe not shiny.

I found this by coincidence and like these ABC and CBS Afterschool movies (rating 10, TOP#3 on my bib overalls blog). Some few other entries here, rating up to 6.

Also soon on my pigtails blog, rating ~4-5.

For shorts rating ~6. Nice camp plot including tents and canoes. Unfortunately few boys in shiny shorts.

Comment: Some boys (including P. David Ebersole) and older teen girls in dark green shorts, not sure if shiny. At least one girl and one boy (not Ebersole) in dark green Adidas shorts. One in 70s shorts (look shiny to me), most others in tight, plain green shorts.

As announced on my updated posts on my bib overalls blog (f/m rating 7), I found some clips on an “official” Facebook site. And so these nice scenes including sitting scenes of the boys (also more close-up).

This movie is 37 minutes (7 songs).

Rating 6-7.

Comment: At least this man shirtless in yellow 70s shorts. Not sure if shiny. Pic at 59 minutes. Is this 27 yo Nicholas Hammond? Looks even older.

I found this by coincidence and only have checked it briefly.

The man is too old. But yellow is interesting. Maybe someone like it?

So rating 2 only.

Comment: Some few young men/older teen boys shirtless in different shorts (maybe not all are shiny) including dark green (also sitting) and white Adidas  (white with red stripes). Also 70s style shorts including white and light blue. Pics 1, 3+4 from the beginning. One young lady in yellow 70s style shorts (scene at ~18 minutes). Definitely also cotton and ripped off shorts at least white and jeans.

I only have checked this briefly.

Typical movie of it’s kind. Few good scenes, mainly at the beginning. Probably no younger actors.

So rating 3-4 for now only. I think not officially on DVD.

Comment: A recent suggestion (both YouTube links are now dead). Several celebrities (males and females) and others in the background in shiny shorts including 70s style and also Adidas. Many different colors, probably all available.

I don’t know all episodes. There are few clips online and most in poor image quality.

I haven’t found notable younger kids or teens.

Pic 1 from May 4th 1980, pic 2 from Dec 4th 1988 cycling in light blue shorts, pic 3 from 1978 (Robin Williams episode), blue 70s style is a woman. Pic 4 from 1979. I also found pics on IMDb with yellow Adidas (man in 1976). Heather Thomas and William Shatner in 1982 in light grey shorts.

Rating 3-4 for now. Maybe I miss some good scenes.

Update: Whatever Turns You On (1979)

whateverturnsyouon2whateverturnsyouon3

After rechecking some episodes of YCDTOTV and it’s spin-offs, I found some few more scenes of this great series, rating 10.

Pic 1 is again from ep 2 with a very good sitting scene.

Pic 2 is from the pilot with a younger boy also in red shorts, probably shiny. But only or mainly from a distance.

In ep 2 there’s also a boy in a short white sailor suit which shorts also appear shiny but probably aren’t. I also have an entry on my sailor suit blog rating 6 (headshot only but also appears in YCDTOTV).

Comment: At least 2 young men shirtless in yellow and red shorts, look shiny. Also a man in light orange shorts and another man sitting in green ones but probably not shiny. Also 70s trunks and speedos.

Not sure about the brand, splitted and tight, almost look like Adidas.

Interesting shorts, but rather few good scenes and I prefer younger actors.

So rating 3 only.

Comment: At least Mike Lookinland and Barry Williams in dark blue shorts, a teen boy shirtless in red shorts and a young man (Patrick Adiarte) in orange shorts or trunks. All shorts are tight and look shiny to me (although very early 1972 setting). Christopher Knight in light blue or similar shorts (not shiny) and also other shorts and 70s speedos. I think another teen boy or man in dark blue shorts. All pics from s4e2.

Great series, also on most or all my other blogs. Recently Chris Knight also in Gunsmoke on my overalls blog, rating 4.

For shorts rating 4 for now only. Rather few scenes. Other episodes and later movies also needs to be checked.
